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 Alabama

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).

Wonderful Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I have stayed at numerous locations/cabins on Smith Lake over the years but, this is absolutely the most impressionable site we've ever stayed. Love the studio design. All comforts of home are right there! The proximity to the town of Cullman is only 10 minutes away. And also, the view is second to none!

There is no doubt that we will be calling Mrs. Suzanne again for future stays on the Lake!

You wont be disappointed with this cabin...

Fabulous and spacious!

  • 5 of 5

We used this house for a bachelorette weekend , and the house couldn't be more perfect. The open kitchen and living room made it so easy for all of us to be in the same room. The living room area was massive and the furniture so comfortable. The house provided everything we needed to cook full meals and the garage doors let in a fabulous Breeze. We would all go back.

Great property in great location. Loved the layout and view.

  • 5 of 5

Layout of the house with the two overhead doors that open onto the deck were so nice in the evening. Water was way down in the lake but still a great view. Large park and picnic area within 10 minute walking distance. Area was very quite the end of October when we were there. We will definitely consider returning.

Very nice surprise

  • 4 of 5

The property and the owner/manager were both a surprise. Very nice, well equipped and furnished property that I would book again. The owner/manager was extremely responsive to a small issue and made it right immediately. Love the large overhead doors that open up to the deck. Loved staying there.
