A Concierge Suggested Summer Day

Summer in East Tennessee can be quite warm and humid and there is no better way to cool off than a day on Tellico Lake! After a hearty breakfast in the Main House, our guides will take you for a drive across the beautiful Foothills Parkway that provides beautiful views of the Smoky Mountains. After a short trip, you will embark on our Mastercraft X46 Wake Surf Boat for an experience you will never forget. You will see eagles, herons and other while life while learning to Wake Surf! You will quickly discover that surfing is no longer a coastal activity and by the end of your experience will have some great photographs of your friends and families cutting the surf that our boat creates.

After returning to Blackberry Farm for a delicious barbeque lunch, why not experience some relaxing time on Hesse Creek learning to Fly Fish? This is perfect for beginners or experienced anglers alike and our guides will teach you the intricacies of the cast and help you land “the big one” on our stream. The creek is teaming with Brown, Brook and Rainbow Trout and our guides can pinpoint the best locations to cast and help pick out the perfect flies to catch the perfect trout. It’s also another great way to cool off in the heat of the day as you wade into the water.

After a day on the water, there’s nothing better than a relaxing body treatment such as our Smoky Mountain Mist Skin Glow that leaves you feeling refreshed and rejuvenated after a full body massage and steam shower. Be sure to enjoy our Meadow Lounge to cap off your experience before heading to dinner at the Barn for a delicious four-course meal crafted by our Executive Chef, Cassidee Dabney. Don’t forget about the exquisite Chef’s Tasting Menu and Wine Pairing to further enhance your dinner experience.

After dinner, be sure to stop by the Bonfire Pit at the Main House to enjoy smores while listening to the sounds of the Smoky Mountains before heading back to your room to fall into blissful sleep.
