Mountain Retreat: A treehouse at Blackberry Mountain
By Richard Rosser
opened in 2018 and focuses on wellness, outdoor adventure and overall luxury. The resort spans 5,200 acres in the Great Smoky Mountains of Tennessee and is a true escape from the stress of the daily grind. Several different lodging options are available, including stone cottages, mountain homes and cabins. But the treehouses are pretty super-cool. These are not the treehouses of your youth — they are a luxe version designed to take advantage of the breathtaking setting. With sleek white oak interiors, marble tile, and floor-to-ceiling windows, a stay here is a memorable experience.
As with any luxury resort, there are several dining options, but the culinary thrust is on creativity using wholesome ingredients. The resort offers classes, including cooking and mixology.
And as for adventure — Blackberry Mountain has so many options, including hiking, biking, fly fishing, horseback riding, but you can always feel free to simply chill by the pool.
