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).

Wonderful contemporary property in great location -- Second Thanksgiving there!

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time we have stayed at Grace's Retreat near Cullman, Alabama. It is halfway between Nashville and Birmingham, so is a convenient place for us to stay over the holidays to see family in the Birmingham area. We love the contemporary décor. You have to see it to believe it. The photos don't do it justice. The kitchen is perfect for cooking a Thanksgiving meal as the kitchen is fully furnished with measuring cups and spoons, mixer, food processor, and lots of mixing bowls. There is a great view of the water, too, but the lake was at a lower level this time. Nearby is a convenience store with a great café attached to it where we enjoyed a wonderful breakfast. You won't be disappointed if you stay at Grace's Retreat!

Anniversary Trip

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for our 1st wedding anniversary and it was so peaceful and relaxing. The house is decorated so cute and modern. The garage doors that open in the kitchen and livingroom are so neat! Every night we sat outside and enjoyed the weather and sat by a fire. The fire pit is very easy to use. The house had everything we needed and more. The owner Suzanne was very easy to work with. She even recommended some restaurants for us to go eat our anniversary dinner. She was so nice and helpful. We will definitely be staying here again. We can't wait until our next trip!
