Outfitted for adventure and designed for comfort, this estate takes the Blackberry State of Mind to new heights.

A Multigenerational Story

For generations of your family, from generations of ours. We’re proud to share our story with you as you begin your story on the Mountain.

The Beall family, known for their visionary success and excellence in hospitality at the award-winning property Blackberry Farm, expanded their commitment to the Great Smoky Mountains region and continued their tradition of offering elevated hospitality with the opening of a new property in 2018 – Blackberry Mountain. Sandy and Kreis Beall opened Blackberry Farm in 1976 as a charming six-room country inn. Their son, Sam Beall, stepped into the role of Proprietor in the early 2000’s to continue the Beall family’s dream of creating cherished experiences and sharing traditions of Southern hospitality. Sam’s vision and inspirational commitment to his work grew Blackberry Farm into the world-renowned establishment it is today. Sam’s love and appreciation for delicious cuisine, great wines and sharing memorable moments with family, friends and guests alike shaped the foundations for the standard of service at the Farm and now at the Mountain.

Following Sam’s untimely passing in 2016, Sam’s wife, Mary Celeste, became Proprietor and committed to continuing the Beall family’s work. She embraced the responsibilities of expanding possibilities and providing magical experiences and has now led, along with her father-in-law Sandy Beall and the Blackberry Farm team, the largest expansion of the company to date with the creation of Blackberry Mountain.

Together Kreis, Sandy and Mary Celeste carry on Sam’s legacy with the highly awarded Blackberry Farm team. With an unwavering commitment to the land and the highest quality of excellence, the adventure continues with new life on Blackberry Mountain.

A Commitment to Sustainability

A practice of honoring, protecting and preserving the land we love is of paramount importance to our team. Across the Mountain you’ll notice our work to be environmentally conscious in ways big and small. No tiny plastic straws. Structures built from stone, repurposed directly from the Mountain. Personal water vessels provided for guests to help to reduce single-use plastics. Every effort is made to treat the Mountain with the same care and respect we offer our guests. Our team is passionate about sustainability and excited to grow and evolve our efforts as we settle into the Mountain.
