Blackberry Farm was such a disappointment. Over Rated and Over Priced. They have defined the term "nickel and dimed". Zagat's rating was very misleading. For the price we paid. we expected it to be as good as other luxury resorts where we have stayed. It simply wasn't! We were expecting something really "special". Unbelievable! And it was, so over hyped and gushing, it was such a disappointment. Face it, it's a farm, in the foothills of the Smokies, you eat in the Barn. The other reviewers may not have had the experiences we've had at other luxury resorts, cruises, etc., but this was not earth shattering! Their prices are ridiculous, plus a 19% surcharge - they should be ashamed of that arrogance. It's baloney.
