Hotel of the week
Blackberry Farm now has an adventure-oriented sibling, said Nicole Schnitzler in TravelAndLeisure.com. At Blackberry Mountain, a Relais & Chateaux property located near the original backwoods retreat, guests can expect the same caliber of service and locavore cuisine, but with more emphasis on rock climbing, mountain biking, and similar activities. You can start any stay with a hike from the Lodge to your luxury cabin or cottage. Morning massages and chef-led picnics are offered, but try to have one lunch at Firetower, a restaurant at the mountain’s peak.
