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.

Best One Yet

  • 5 of 5

We have had several family vacations in the Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge areas. This time we wanted to be out of the touristy area and closer to our daughter’s destination wedding site in Walland. This was the first cabin I can truly say that I can rate as clean! Beautiful scenery from the porch.. plenty of space and amenities for the family members, but close enough to get to all the places you would want to see. Even though our visit was mid April, we had two days of snow flurries and the caretakers of the property were wonderful enough to come and relight the pilot light in the fireplace. If there was ONE negative point, it was that even if the heat is on, the downstairs seems to stay very cool.... the heat doesn’t get down there at all. For this they have electric heater fans in every bedroom. Definitely a place we would put on our revisit list for that area! Thank you 😊

Beautiful home in a quiet neighborhood just enough away from busy Pigeon Forge.

  • 5 of 5

Loved the home and loved the view and quietness of the location. Front porch was the best part for me. Kids loved the play room of course lol. That Mountain View is everything though. Home was fully stocked with everything needed. I didn’t notice fireplace was on when we arrived. Noticed the following night. Maybe you should do a check when you arrive. Definitely coming back. Hopefully can see snow next time.

Amazing cabin!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the cabin! It’s a perfect place for my scrapbooking group! We will be reserving the cabin again. The only issue was with the fire stick and televisions in the living room and downstairs. They were very difficult to ge working. We never got the fire stick to work downstairs but was able to use he smart tv.

Another great time!

  • 5 of 5

This was our family's 3rd time to stay here and we had a great time. The accommodations and furnishings are 1st rate and, of course, Townsend is the best place to stay near the park.

Clean and comfortable in a great location with beautiful views!

  • 4 of 5

Our family enjoyed the comforts this home has to offer— convenient fire pit, close to hiking and streams for fly fishing, huge yard for dogs, ping pong and very comfortable beds. Had a light bulb go out and caretakers were at house less than 2 minutes after I called to change it! Had difficulty with operating TVs since several channels were not activated — need better instructions on how to access all channels. Loved our vacation and would recommend this rental!

Great place. Perfect for our needs.

  • 5 of 5

We rented the the cabin for a family wedding weekend in the Townsend area. Everything about the cabin was perfect for our family. The pool, ping pong and foos ball table were very much in use. The place was large and everyone had lots of space to spread out. The outdoor fire pit was a delight on the chilly evenings. We had some friends join us for coffee and dessert after the rehearsal dinner. The kitchen was wonderfully stocked with more than we expected. The house easily accommodated our friends and everyone had a great time. The view was beautiful and it was very convenient to everything we needed. I can imagine we will return again to stay at this lovely house. I recommend it highly. Thanks for everything!
