Bustling Beauty

Elegant Relais & Châteaux accommodations range from charming estate rooms to spacious suites and luxurious cottages. As inviting as the rooms are, you’ll find it’s what’s outside that truly counts. Activities and adventures abound in every season, including Orvis-endorsed fly-fishing, fox hunting, horseback riding, hiking, sporting clays, cycling, and mountain biking.

If finding balance is your focus, The Wellhouse offers a full menu of indulgent spa treatments, yoga, lectures, and workshops designed to foster a healthier lifestyle. Years after its founding, Blackberry is still a working farm. See for yourself with a Farmstead Tour, or spend a morning with the resort’s Master Gardener. Chickens, sheep, and even llamas have a role, too, in making a Blackberry stay more authentic—and unforgettable.
