About Sue Blanton Mortimer

Both Doug and Sue Mortimer are life long residents of Salyersville. Together they have operated Mortimer's Studio for 4 decades and in the late '80's became managing partners of the local Dairy Queen and Lee's Famous Recipe. After purchasing one of the few historical buildings remaining in Salyersville the idea of offering luxury vacation rental lofts just seemed natural. Their dream is that former Magoffin Countians will see this as a good place to 'come home to'.

Sue Blanton Mortimer purchased this condo in 2008

Why Sue Blanton Mortimer chose Kentucky

In the 1940's Doug's parents, Henry and Freida Lacy Mortimer, operated the Tavern on the 1st floor of the building. Throughout you will find old photographs of local places and people and there are some of his mother taken in the Tavern so naturally this building has special meaning to Doug.

We enjoyed our stay in Salyersville researching family roots. Staying in the Mortimer Loft was an excellent choice. Highly recommend. The owners were exceptionally gracious as well.

This place is like a jewel. LOVED it!!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful and upscale, these Mortimer Lofts are at the same time very private and yet very centrally and conveniently located in downtown Salyersville. Do yourself a favor and book it if you are even thinking about it. You will be thrilled. I also felt the perfect balance between how accommodating and available the Mortimers were, and yet they totally left me alone and gave me complete privacy.

Don't miss this one!

Quaint Lil Loft

  • 5 of 5

The Mortimer loft is a quaint little place to stay. It's a little jewel of a place hidden in my hometown. We were close to our event and it worked great for us. It was beautifully decorated and the beds are very comfortable. We had a wonderful stay.

Wonderful Weekend in Eastern Kentucky

  • 5 of 5

Here in Saylersville seeing college kids affiliated with the UDSAP program at the University of Dayton. This is right in the center of town, right above the street where the Fourth of July weekend fesitivities were held. Sue is great to work with. It has great old pictures of the Salyersville area, is easy to access and very comfortable. She was available for what ever we needed. The place is just beautiful, and a fun expereince to stay in. Our only problem at all was the wi-fi, but remember the area of Kentucky can have spotty wi-fi anyway. We did not need the wi-fi for business or anything like that. If we had, I am sure Sue would have helped had we needed to call. I would reccommend this to anyone staying in the area.
