About Suzette Gramm

Barry is a retired pilot. He flew F15's in the USAF and then for Fed Ex. Suzette is a nurse and is managing an Orthopedic practice and surgery centers. We have 3 sons, 3 grandsons, and a granddaughter due in November 2015. We live in Florida, but we have some wonderful friends / caretakers that keep the cabin in tip top shape.

Suzette Gramm purchased this cabin in 2009

Why Suzette Gramm chose Townsend

The house was owned by Suzette's sister who did many wonderful upgrades and initial decor of the cabin. We enjoyed many family vacations in the cabin and when my sister wanted to sell the cabin we purchased it to keep it in the family.

What makes this cabin unique

The view from the deck is unsurpassed in the area and the deck is the perfect place to enjoy a cup of coffee or glass of wine. Having lived in Florida so long, we really enjoy that we can enjoy all 4 seasons at the cabin. Townsend is on the "quiet side" of the mountain yet close enough to Knoxville, Gatlinburg, and Pigeon Forge to enjoy the "touristy" stuff and then come back to the cabin for relaxation and family time.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for the opportunity to rent your Townsend cabin on Nov. 7-9. I tried to do the review on the website but couldn't get it to scroll down. We would definitely rate our stay 5 stars. Our family of 11 loved the cabin. While we have always loved Townsend they always preferred to stay in Gatlinburg. When we were leaving they said they voted to make this place our annual birthday retreat. We hope we left everything in top shape.

Comfortable, roomy and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

The Cedar Creek Manor had a spacious kitchen and dining room table and plenty of relaxed seating areas, so it was just right for our couples retreat (5 couples). The location is great, on the peaceful side of the Smokies. It's tucked away from the bustle but still close to anything you might need. We plan to be back!

Family Christmas Cabin

  • 5 of 5

We so enjoyed the cabin this year...I think this was our 6th year at Cedar Creek. Our grandchildren love having the openness of the cabin and the big yard to play in. We have built a life time of memories in this cabin that we will cherish for a life time.

We have the cabin booked for June 2018 and will be booking it for our Christmas 2018 get-away soon.

The only thing that we missed was the Christmas Tree. For the first few years the cabin was decorated for Christmas...last year and this year it was not.

Owner's Response: Pamela, Thank you for being such a loyal guest at Cedar Creek Manor. Our family too has made many memories there. Sorry about the Christmas decor. I had to order a new tree and it did not get there in time for Diane to get it up with the other decor. We are all set for next year though. Suzette

Our family was there for my daughters wedding. We loved it!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed the view especially in the morning on the deck with our coffee. The kids loved the pool table, ping pong, and fuse ball. We really appreciated being able to bring our dog Daisy. She enjoyed sun bathing on the deck, watching the cows across the street and long walks.

We did have some trouble getting the TV working but we really don’t need Tv on vacation.

My only suggestion would be to have a few more big pots and serving bowls. We had a big Spaghetti dinner and could have used some big bowls to serve in.

It’s a perfect place for a family get away or vacation!

Loved this house!

  • 5 of 5

This house is wonderful! We stayed in mid September, and could not have asked for a nicer house, location or weather. We stayed with our 3 adult kids, their spouses and grandbaby and we all felt we had plenty of room for family time and privacy. Kitchen had everything we could have needed to make meals. Loved the game room. Pictures were very accurate and there were no surprises. We would definitely stay again and highly recommend.
