Blackberry Farm, Tennessee
The Breakfast: Almost every ingredient in chef Josh Feathers’s dishes is sourced right on property at this 4,200-acre Smoky Mountain farm estate. Breakfast arrives served on a silver tray, and might include silver-dollar cornmeal griddlecakes; a stone-ground oatmeal casserole sweetened with sorghum cream and bourbon-poached currants; a poached-egg–and-potato mousseline with ramp vinaigrette; or house-baked turnovers filled with strawberry-rhubarb, white peach, or blueberry-Meyer lemon jam.
The Bed: Looking out over mist-shrouded ridges and the green, rolling foothills of the Smoky Mountains, Blackberry Farm’s 63 rooms are outfitted with antiques, feather beds, and chaise furniture and decorated with regional artwork and vintage photographs. All have porches or English-style verandas and rockers, where you can take a meal while contemplating the estate’s blossoming columbines, foamflowers, blue larkspurs, and wild geraniums.
