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 Salyersville
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.

Great setting - very comfortable!
Sue was fantastic and very accommodating. The bed was very good and I slept well. I would highly recommend to couples or singles traveling to Salyersville.
So glad you were comfortable with us! Terrible weather and road conditions are things we don't always have to deal with in the winter.....hope you will visit again, sorry I didn't get to meet you!
Old-world home-town feel
Great place for family to stay while in town for a wedding. It was a long, tall staircase for my parents (82 and 83-years-old), but they slept comfortably. The room was very quaint with many local photos hanging. (different from the more modern-looking room shown on this site.) Dad's only complaint was the shower was not hot enough.
well appointed, clean, comfortable and convenient
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!!
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
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.
Clean and comfortable
Room was clean and comfortable. We enjoyed the stay.
Near by is the Magoffin County Historical Society, where people travel from all over the world to trace their ancestry. Our Historical Society has amassed a genealogy collection which is one of the largest East of Salt Lake City. Each Labor Day weekend they host the annual Founders Day Festival where each year a different 'local' family is recognized with thousands traveling from far and wide to unite and often learn of their heritage. Other activities are the annual Christmas Celebration providing guests and locals with perhaps one of the most beautiful and brilliantly lit Christmas parades in the region, the 4th of July Patriotic Parade and Watermelon Social. Our local Civil War Re-enactment Committee stages battles as they were fought at the Gardner Farm on Ivy Point and the Battle of Puncheon Creek. In addition, the Kentucky State Park system has just completed the 1st phase of the Dawkins Rail Trail, providing when finished the 2nd longest walking, biking and horseback riding trail in the US.
