Blackberry Mountain Resort has become the newest member of the Lexus Hotel Partner Program and can now offer guests the chance to experience the all-new Lexus GX in its natural environment.
The Lexus Off-Road Adventure allows guests to hone their off-road driving skills while taking in the beauty of the Great Smoky Mountains.
During a 90-minute excursion through a custom-designed course, drivers will attempt to complete six challenges: Rock Crawls, Side Tilts, Hill Climbs and Descents, Balance Beams, Log Crawls and Axle Twists.
A personal Blackberry Mountain Resort Adventure Guide shows drivers the way while the Lexus GX’s innovative technology systems will also be utilized to their fullest capabilities.
As well as getting a taste for off-road driving, the experience also allows guests to explore the 5,200-acre property that surrounds Blackberry Mountain Resort. The course has been specifically designed to include majestic waypoints to take in the stunning views of the Smoky Mountains and Tennessee Valley.
“I love that partnering with Lexus has allowed us to offer our guests the opportunity to explore the beautiful region we live in,” said Mary Celeste Beall, Proprietor of Blackberry Farm and Blackberry Mountain.
“We always enjoy the opportunity to work with a company that shares our commitment to quality and creating memorable experiences. With the addition of the off-road course, Lexus is creating another layer of adventure for guests to immerse themselves in exploration of the Mountain.”
In addition to the Off-Road Adventure, guests will also have the opportunity to test drive a range of other Lexus models. Every guest staying at the hotel will be given a complimentary two-hour test-drive of the model of their choice.
This new adventure will now sit among a wide-ranging selection of experiences at the luxurious mountain retreat. The property has cut its reputation in offering a romantic, peaceful and relaxing environment with immersive outdoor and wellness activities and is famous for its aerial yoga and forest bathing.
Blackberry Mountain is located in Walland, Tennessee, seven miles from Blackberry Farm and about 30 minutes from Knoxville’s McGhee Tyson Airport. For more information on Blackberry Mountain or to make a reservation, please visit: blackberrymountain.com.
