Rustic Elegance

Blackberry FarmThink barn like structures, rustic cottages of wood and stone nestled in the trees, beautifully appointed spaces, incredible food, attention to every detail and you have Blackberry Farm.   

Blackberry FarmCottages have tastefully appointed and comfortable sitting areas that are perfect for enjoying morning coffee or moments of afternoon relaxation.

Blackberry FarmThere’s no temptation to watch TV as it is hidden behind hinged panels over the fireplace.

Blackberry FarmThe one simple take away is a vase filled with Queen Anne’s Lace, a wildflower plentiful in Maine this time of year!

Blackberry FarmEvery sitting surface has pillows, lots of them, and I determined there must be a pillow frumping fairy on the grounds because no pillow was ever mussed!

Blackberry FarmSuch an atmosphere encourages one to leisurely savor a gourmet dinner prepared with fresh farm ingredients.  Remembering how good the food was makes my mouth water.

If you guessed that Blackberry Farm is a special place, you are right.   It’s hard to imagine a more perfect place to experience a special occasion.  Should the opportunity arise, enjoy!

  14. I’m not feeling well this evening…haven’t all day. Acid reflux, Ramon thinks. Whatever it is, it’s making me very uncomfortable and grouchy. Looking at these photos brought me back, though. Gosh…so beautiful. I was smitten from the first photo. I can only imagine the serenity that exists in that place. And then looking at that Queen Anne’s Lace arrangement just took me back in my mind to a very simple time when I wasn’t worried about all the crap that I worry about now. Almost made me want to chuck my computer out the window. Just so, so beautiful.

    1. Oh I hope you are feeling better Alycia!!!

    2. I’m right there with you tonight with a yukky tummy. If anything in this post made you feel better, I’m glad. It would do us all good to keep it simple.
