About Suzanne

Grace's Retreat was purchased in 2007 and is a family owned property. It is named for our Grandmother. The home was decorated by our sister who is an interior designer.

Suzanne purchased this house in 2007

Why Suzanne chose Cullman

We purchased Grace's Retreat in 2007. The house is named for our grandmother who passed away in 2008. More than anything she loved having her family together. This house brings family and friends together throughout the year.

What makes this house unique

It is only a short drive from I-65 and is located less than 2 minutes from the public boat launch at Smith Lake Park. With the open floor plan, the house is perfect for large gatherings or getaways for couples, friends, and families.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a wonderful stay. The house is gorgeous and relaxing and perfect. It was a great mix for me and my husband (I am a city girl and he is a country guy).

Quiet and clean!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time spending the weekend here. We loved the garage doors and spent tons of time on the huge back deck. We will definitely be back! The only thing that could make it better is if it was pet friendly! :)
