About Tammy and Sam
Please allow us to introduce ourselves. We are Sam and Tammy ; We ourselves were once visitors to The Great Smoky Mountains. Sam is a native Swiss/German and had always the idea to offer and operate a “back to the basics” or Vacation retreat “holiday on a family owned and operated Farm”. We traveled all over the US to see where we want to settle. It took only one visit to realize that this is where we wanted to live, work and raise our children. We went back and forward , sold our home/company and moved to what we think is a most extraordinary place. We are extremely proud to own and operate Stuetz Mountain Retreat, where you will receive top notch personal attention to make your stay a memorable one. In our life, it has been clear that nothing comes easily. We are happy that we took the hard road in many areas to develop and maintain our land, knowing that this efforts will eventually produce better results. Since we are family owned and operated we also maintain a self-sustainable lifestyle. Instead of using disposable products constantly, Sam and Tammy aims to use recyclable and reusable alternatives, even though they often require more effort. Enjoy your stay with us!
Tammy and Sam purchased this Cabin in 2009

It is on top of mountain with a beautiful view. Never found the sauna but had a wonderful time.
It is smaller than expected but nice. Can't barely sit up in the loft. No TV or internet. But it was cute and clean. Enjoyed the visit.
Perfect destination to appreciate being “off the grid!”
Honestly, this cabin is the perfect location to plan on keeping a family in-tuned to each other and focus on family first! You can still travel west to locations like Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg to indulge in activities like ATV rides and horseback riding or even mountain coasters, however, coming back to Rustic Retreat in the evening to enjoy the hot tub and the beautiful views or hikes around the property is the perfect conclusion to your day. Tammy and her husband were extremely welcoming and responsive to any of our needs, and clearly know the importance of taking care of their guests in a genuine manner.
Fantastic family retreat in this humble abode!
My husband and I took our two boys (9,10) on a Smokey Mountain adventure with hiking, marshmallows over the campfire, and quality family time without internet or technology. This cabin was perfect and had everything we needed. The boys loved the loft bedroom and slept like babies on the super comfy beds. Our bed was extremely comfortable as well making it challenging to get up out of bed each morning! The views from the cabin overlooking the mountains are magical! As a family, we enjoyed eating breakfast on the picnic table each morning taking in all of nature’s beauty.
The owners are so very nice and go out of their way to ensure your stay is special. We arrived on Easter Sunday and Tammy hid Easter eggs around the property for when we arrived so that our boys wouldn’t think the Easter bunny had forgotten about them amidst our travels across the country. And their farm fresh eggs are delicious!
My husband and I work very busy, stressful jobs and this vacation gave us all the relaxation and peace we had hoped for and more! If you are looking to get away from it all, spend quality time with your loved ones, live simply, and immerse yourself in nature, this is the place for you!
Thank you so much, Tammy and Sam! The four of us will be back very soon!! We are going to try for a summer trip next time so that the boys can swim in the little lagoon/pond at the bottom of the hill! Take care!
The cabin is quaint and has a beautiful view. The road to the cabin is a sporty trip.
My husband and I loved staying at the Rustic Mountain cabin. Everyday we would venture out on day hikes in the mountains and would come back to the cabin and soak our sore muscles in the lovely hot tub. It was nice to "check out" from the business of everyday technology and just relax with the sounds of the Cardinals and other song birds singing to their loved ones. I really appreciated having some books available to read. I was able to finish A Walk in the Woods in a couple of days. Great read, especially being so close to the Applacian Trail. Would recommend staying here for sure.
Magical, sunshine and thunderstorm were both beautiful!
Omg!!! It was amazing. First time up to the top we were escorted by Sam and Tammy. They were so sweet so helpful and wanted to make sure that we found our way safely! Seemed steep but only the first time. The cottage is AAAAAAADORABLE. VERY CLEAN! These two have thought of everything from the lawn chairs set up at bonfire site, the HOT TUB clean and ready for you to just jump on and relax. They had fresh ferns in vases.....fresh eggs available! You won’t believe the loft! We didn’t need it but it is fun and interesting. They keep every detail covered, more than you can think!
Doug and Sherie Thomas from Mayville Mi had a wonderful time and were Blessed to be able to meet Sam and Tammy!! Thank YOU
Stunning views and comfy amenities
The house was so cozy and pleasant, the views were amazing and the sauna was great! We will be back.
