If we went here I would pack this...

I mentioned a couple of weeks ago that my mom and I attended a party at Hickory Chair.  The party was catered by Blackberry Farm - they had absolutely delicious cheeses, dried sausages and assorted chutneys- in one word- heaven!  I looked them up online and realized that there was more to this "farm" than just good food, it is also a beautiful luxury hotel nestled right in the foothills of the Smokey Mountains of eastern Tennessee.  The place looks so serene and peaceful but its not just all about relaxing.  You can take cooking classes, gardening classes, go horseback riding, go on hikes, do yoga, go fly fishing, go shooting- basically my perfect weekend (minus the shooting - I will leave that for Seamus) all the while taking in the beautiful scenery.  Where can I sign up??!!
 Their amazing garden
"Blackberry Farm's dining venue, The Barn, creates our magical epicurean experience, that has been featured in Food & Wine, Gourmet and Bon Appétit. The multi-course, beautifully served menus are inspired by seasonal, farm-fresh products and produce, grown just a few feet away."  - from blackberryfarm.com

 I can do this...
 While Seamus does this.

 This room looks so cozy and inviting.
Another amazing guest room.
