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 Tennessee

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.

A lot of good things

  • 4 of 5

Overall we (party of 7, ages 10 to 70) had a lovely time in this cabin. We found it as described, clean and well furnished. The beds were extremely comfortable, the kitchen was well stocked, and the many quilts were beautiful. We enjoyed sitting on the porch, looking at the mountains. The two separate living areas were a plus.

There were two things that "took away" the 5th star. We were a little disappointed by the misrepresentation of the cabin's location based on the pin position on the HomeAway map. Although not far from Townsend, it is on the other side of the river from where it is shown. The other problem was the TV connection. It seems to be totally Internet based (which was very fast) and could be a problem for people without a streaming service provider (like us). We signed up for a trial period with Hulu and were able to watch enough TV to keep the troops from revolting.

Overall though, we were happy with the cabin and would stay here again if we were in need of a 5 bedroom cabin. It is a nice quiet location , yet very close to all activities.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the kind words in your review, and for your feedback to help us improve for your future stays at Cedar Creek Manor. We're glad to hear that your party had an overall great time during your stay. After looking into the HomeAway map pin issue in your feedback, it looks like the HomeAway map pin in is indeed showing the approximate area, and not on the exact location of the home. We are looking into the listing features to see if we can improve how HomeAway displays the property location. For TV entertainment, if we have the pleasure of hosting you and your party in the future, we do hope you will get in touch if you have any trouble with the streaming services already included in your stay. We pre-loaded an app called PlayStation Vue onto streaming devices attached to most TVs throughout the home. We maintain a monthly subscription to the PlayStation Vue service, which offers live access to many of the most popular TV channels, including DVR functionality. Our subscription allows up to five devices to stream different channels at the same time from different TVs throughout the home. We apologize that you were not able to access the live TV service from our Amazon Fire TV streaming devices during your stay. If you have questions or trouble with our internet-based live TV streaming app during a future stay, we do hope to be able to walk you through accessing or troubleshooting during you stay! Please don't hesitate to call for assistance. We know just how tricky it can be to keep everyone happy with access to all their favorite shows while they are staying at Cedar Creek Manor! Suzette and Barry Gramm

We had the most amazing vacation. The cabin was beautiful and furnished with all the comforts of home. The view was absolutely breathtaking! Just a couple of miles from the National park/ Cade's Cove. I highly recommend Cedar Creek Manor to everyone.

Great cabin for the entire family. Well maintained

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Cedar Creek Manor.

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

The open floor plan and multiple bedrooms and baths were perfect for family and friends to relax and share time together. The back-of-the-house inclined walkway is perfect for elderly family members.

The Townsend location is perfect for visiting nearby Pigeon Forge, Gatlinburg, Cherokee and Maggie Valley. Easy access to town with local antique stores and other merchants. We thoroughly enjoyed our family vacation!
