Early morning breakfast at Blackberry Farm usually involves a misty golf cart ride to the dining room, followed by fresh pastries, thick bacon, and Eggs Benedict that melt in your mouth. Breakfast usually ends with someone spilling their drink across the whole table and onto the ground. But the staff at Blackberry Farm is always just a step away, assuring you that it is no big deal and it happens all the time. I’m sure it doesn’t, but they make you feel better anyway.
The women are booked for massages, and the men are set to shoot skeet and tour the farm for the rest of the afternoon. The young boys will trek along with the men, maybe fishing, or maybe searching for sticks to whack on things along the way. Everyone will meet back up for fly fishing; no one wants to miss that. The boys all head over to see the newborn truffle puppies, and the women head over for a some pampering at the spa.
If you have never been to the spa at Blackberry Farm, it is a must: without a doubt the most relaxing and refreshing spa I have ever been to. The ambiance is inviting and cozy as you step into the cottage-style lounge and wait for your masseuse. Herbal tea and raw almonds await you, along with a view of the entire valley in which Blackberry farm sits. The peacefulness you feel in those hours at the spa remains with you for the rest of the weekend, no matter what adventures you have planned.
