Rustic Elegance


Blackberry FarmThink barn like structures, rustic cottages of wood and stone nestled in the trees, beautifully appointed spaces, incredible food, attention to every detail and you have Blackberry Farm.   

Blackberry FarmCottages have tastefully appointed and comfortable sitting areas that are perfect for enjoying morning coffee or moments of afternoon relaxation.

Blackberry FarmThere’s no temptation to watch TV as it is hidden behind hinged panels over the fireplace.

Blackberry FarmEvery sitting surface has pillows, lots of them, and I determined there must be a pillow frumping fairy on the grounds because no pillow was ever mussed!

If you guessed that Blackberry Farm is a special place, you are right.   It’s hard to imagine a more perfect place to experience a special occasion.  Should the opportunity arise, enjoy!

  1. I’m not feeling well this evening…haven’t all day. Acid reflux, Ramon thinks. Whatever it is, it’s making me very uncomfortable and grouchy. Looking at these photos brought me back, though. Gosh…so beautiful. I was smitten from the first photo. I can only imagine the serenity that exists in that place. And then looking at that Queen Anne’s Lace arrangement just took me back in my mind to a very simple time when I wasn’t worried about all the crap that I worry about now. Almost made me want to chuck my computer out the window. Just so, so beautiful.

  2. Wonderful building. I too like the rustic elegance. The interior spaces are so lovely too. I am not as fond of the dining room, but the food is beautifully presented. I like the fireplace, but the space has an old west saloon look to it.
