About Suzanne Wasilik
Hello Travelers! I am an independent lady, mother of 2, grandmother of 3. Love to write and to paint. Love meeting people. I retired in 2009 the US Postal Service as a Rural Letter Carrier. Now I have many projects to keep me from getting a "real" job! The Cozy Rest is one of them. I am easy going and friendly, and am available in person or by text to answer your questions and needs. I can be as sociable or aloof, depending on the situation.
Suzanne Wasilik purchased this Apartment in 2016
Why Suzanne Wasilik chose Oak Ridge
Reasonable Rates! Nice Neighborhood! View of the mountains from front deck! Grocery stores and restaurants 10 minutes away. Annual Secret City Festival in June! Museums. Walking distance to Cedar Hill Park--playground and a track. 30 min drive to Knoxville-which is full of the arts! Old City Knoxville, lots of cool bars. 10 minute drive to Oliver Springs--4 wheeling on Windrock Mountain. Movie theater. Oak Ridge Playhouse. Historic Jackson Square. Oh! Why did I buy it? Because I like it!
What makes this Apartment unique
You get everything you'd find in a hotel at less than half the price! You get your own key and come and go as you please. You may socialize with me-or not! But I will meet you face to face at the door when you arrive--if at all possible!! Later, if the need arrives, you can simply text me.

I like the Cozy Rest
The Cozy Rest is a great deal for the price. Suzanne was cordial. I enjoyed my stay and would stay again.
Thanks James. Like you said before, nice quiet neighborhood, and plenty of place to park on the street. And the suite has a kitchenette along with it's own private bath. And a TV. Cozy. You were a great guest. Thanks again. Suzanne
Perfect Cozy Retreat!
I was in town for an interview and had the pleasure of staying at the Cozy Rest for a few days. The entire time, I felt safe and comfortable in a town I was unfamiliar with. Suzanne thought of everything for you to enjoy your stay. It was great having a kitchenette so I could bring my own groceries back, and not eat out all the time! Pots, pans, silverware, dishes, extra blankets, tons of hangers, reading material, and plenty of seating! She has it all. I would be happy to stay at the Cozy Rest again the next time I am in town! Suzanne was so sweet, and a very good hostess. We had a few laughs, and she recommended some places to check out. EXCELLENT stay! Would give 10 stars if I could! Thank you Suzanne!
Suzanne was delightful and the apartment was cozy. The only thing that could use improving were the mattresses on the bed. I need a very firm mattress and these were soft.
Thank you, Brenda! I justpurchased a new firm mattress! The place is well suited for one person, although it has accommodated a mother and a child, and a married couple looking to resettle in our beautiful East Tennessee. I've also had a few working people who have had temporary jobs in the area. And 4wheeler enthusiasts coming to play on Windrock Mountain have visited too. Not to mention the Rowers! Y'all Come!
Few days stay
Suzanne's place was centrally located to the areas we were interested in checking out for future retirement locations. Her Cozy Rest was clean and easily accessible from all directions in the state. It suited our needs perfectly. We will definitely return when we are in the area again!
Yes, indeed, Michelle, my little mom-in-law suite (aka the Cozy Rest,) has all a hotel can offer- bedroom, private bath, living room, kitchenette-with a 2 burner stove, a TV and wi-fi! All for one third of the price of a local hotel! Thanks for the nice review! You and Dave were a delight to host! Hope to see you again! Best to you! Suzanne
Comfortable and convenient place to stay
This complete apartment was very comfortable, clean and quiet for a good night's rest. Suzanne was a wonderful host, and communication prior to arrival was great. Unfortunately for us, we ended up getting in rather late and had to get going early so we didn't get to spend much time here, but I can say without hesitation that I would love to stay here again next time I travel to the area.
Thank you Rachel! Rowers Welcome!!
Cozy is the perfect way to describe this adorable space
Suzie is an amazing host. She is friendly and genuinely very caring. There is plenty of space and everything is clean and fresh for arrival. When I arrived the windows were open for me to enjoy the beautiful breeze.
The space is very quiet and I had some of the best sleep in a long time while there.
I had everything I needed for my stay.
The neighborhood is adorable with great history. It's close to everything you need too!
I highly recommend the cozy nest.
I will be back!
Thanks so much, Tonya! I'm glad you enjoyed your stay at the Cozy Rest!
Oak Ridge, Tn is a town of about 30,000 nestled in neighboring foothills of the Cumberlands on one side, and the Smokies on the other. We are about 30 minutes from Knoxville, and 10 minutes from Oliver Springs, home of Windrock Mountain, where you can go 4-wheeling. It's about a 45 min drive to Gatlinburg, Dollywood, and Sevierville, IF there is no traffic! In town, we have Melton Hill Lake, where many regattas are held, and when they are not, you can dip in a canoe. In the summer months, between May 30 and the end of August, there is a large indoor pool. Restaurants and grocery stores are a short distance away. I recommend having a car, but if you have a bicycle, you could make it around well, as long as you can make it up he hills! There is a greenway behind our neighborhood where you can hike, and also a nearby playground/park. Methodist Medical Center, our local hospital is just down the hill about a half mile. You could walk there if you havn't broken your leg! Or if perhaps you have a short term job there. All in all, everything is close by.
