About Sue Ann Clemons

I am a retired dental hygienist and chef (French trained),. Some of my favorite things are traveling ,cooking, bike riding, hiking,reading,listening to music, movies and spending time with my husband, 2 grown children,and my dogs.

Sue Ann Clemons purchased this cabin in 2005

Why Sue Ann Clemons chose Blue Ridge Highlands

I have lived in this area for 32 yrs. and this property is 6 miles from my home. The area is bucolic and serene. We are nestled in the Blue Ridge mountains. It is a very beautiful area.

What makes this cabin unique

There is a wonderful babbling creek on the property that you can sit on one of the front porch rockers and clearly listen to. It is so peaceful and relaxing. It is a great location for painting or a retreat for writing. It is truly getting back to nature, you can birdwatch ,we have deer and a bunch of wonderful wild turkeys. It is a wonderful feeling of really 'getting away from it all'.

Nice, secluded

  • 5 of 5

Very comfortable and beautiful cabin(more of a cabin themed palace, really) and land. Host stocked with snacks and chocolates, coffees and teas; much appreciated. Deer in the adjoining fields. Downtown Galax is several miles away. Perfect place for a serene, restful few days or week.

Our romantic anniversary get away

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I visited the cabin for our anniversary weekend and had a wonderful time. I really thought a weekend there would be too long but I was wrong. We had a wonderful time, wandering the trail, jogging along the nearby country lanes and enjoying the solitude and beauty of the property.

The cabin is beautifully constructed and owner Sue Clemons' taste in decor is brilliant.

We loved hanging out on the front porch, listening to music and sampling the wines and foods Sue provided.

We loved the comfort of the furnishings and felt safe and secure on the property. There is a lot to do locally but once we arrived, we did not want to leave. We just slowed down and let the spirit of the place have its way with us.

We loved it!

Fall get away

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for sharing your beautiful cabin. The attention you put into the warm comforting details along with the welcoming treats were beyond expectations. We all felt as if we were staying with family not just renting a vacation house. My husband wants me to be certain to tell you that he loved the crumb cake and is still talking about it! Your wine selection was perfect as were the cheese ball and scones. There was not one amenity that you forgot and we will continue to marvel and talk about your place until we get together again.

We hope to return some time and continue to explore this area. Your place makes all of us wish we lived there!

Again the Cabin at Mill Pond

  • 5 of 5

Returned on June 14-18 & all was perfection. My best friend from high school & neighbor went with me for a girls only stay. Did a little trail walking, ( northern end) took lots of pix, read, watched DVD's, ate too much, saw deer on property, visited Mt Airy, NC (Mayberry), shopped in Galax, etc. Have to return soon. We were busy most of the visit but also the mountain air & views were relaxing. Sue I thank you for having us. Can see your love of cabin when walking in door. Husband & I returning in Sept. Can't wait!
