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. Each of the cabins we build from a kit or from scratch. All measures have been taken to provide all the comforts of home to make your stay as comfortable and authentic as possible. Click on the Cabins tab and take a tour of the available cabins. Each cabin has a list of amenities sure to please any vacationer and adventure seeker. We hope you enjoy The Great Smoky Mountains and this peace of paradise alone or with your family as much as we have. 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 2012

                                                                          Tara M.

                                                                          We stayed for one night on a trip driving up from Florida to Kentucky...and it was a perfect location for us to rest over for the evening! Upon arrival, the ambiance & warmth of the gas fireplace greeted us, and it was clear that Tammy & Sam pay attention to detail. Everything was clean, and well stocked with plenty of towels and all the little things one would need. The mountain area itself had plenty to take in--with hiking trails immediately accessible steps from the cabin, we even got a guided tour from one of the local pups! Additionally, we loved the fact that you're only about 10-15 mins from town if you need anything, but on the mountain feel worlds away. We would certainly stay again on our next area vacation! :)

                                                                          Short but wonderful stay!

                                                                          Perfect getaway!

The porch was perfect for relaxing in the hot tub or enjoying a glass of wine in the rocking chairs as the sun set behind the mountains. The inside was clean and a perfect amount of space. The photos do not do it justice! Sam and Tammy were super friendly and accommodating, which added to a great overall experience. We took day trips to Cataloochee and Gatlinburg. It was a fabulous weekend!!

                                                                          Fantastic quiet mountainside cabin

                                                                          Perfect space for a weekend getaway.
