Blackberry Farm’s Toad Hall

Do you want to know the secret address where chic and in-the-know Southerners go for a fabulous weekend getaway?

We head to Tennessee’s gorgeous BLACKBERRY FARM. From its location in the foothills of the Smoky Mountains to the homey cottages to the farm-fresh cuisine everything about Blackberry Farm is beyond. So when Architectural Digest featured Toad Hall, the home of Blackberry Farm’s owners, I was thrilled to see how they live when they’re not managing one of the world’s best hotels.

As you can see from these stunning photographs, TOAD HALL has a English country meets Southern log cabin feel to it. With the help of Atlanta interior designer, Suzanne Kasler, the Tennessee hideaway is filled with global accents like rugs from India, 19th century European furnishings and Chinese lacquered screens. Suzanne also used damasks, velvets and tapestries in the main house and cottages to give the idyllic southern hideaway a rugged yet refined look.

In the kitchen area, salvaged woods and a cook’s stove perfect for preparing those large family meals that Southerners adore.

In the master bedroom, luxe fabrics in cream and taupe to give a softer edge and create a warm and inviting retreat.

Off the great room, who could resist days and nights relaxing on this incredible porch? This may be my favorite “room” on the entire property.

Here is the entrance to one of two guest cottages on the 32 acres property, which was basically built from a hand drawing. It’s called Tadpole Cottage. The Tadpole’s bedroom features a gorgeous four poster bed made from hickory logs.
