Overview

Kentucky Condo Rental Photos and Description

Choice of 2 units each can occupy 4 to 6 adults.

Located in the historic block that was part of the Star Theater, the Coffee Cup, Bus Station, TAVERN and catty cornered to where the Cozy Corner operated. You will see on our walls much historic past in photos by photographers of old times, a décor reminiscent of the early twentieth century. Our Lofts provide you with an upscale space in the heart of downtown for discriminating travelers.

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.

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.

Ups and Downs

  • 3 of 5

First, the lady who manages this property is great. Never met her, but she gave call backs, polite, and her information was correct. The room was dated but very well remodeled. Our Personal Downside, the room was street side against another building directly across the street, the road noise woke my wife and I up much earlier than expected. Upside, The locals are the friendliest bunch of people, eager to assist a stranger.

Fun place to stay in a beautiful part of Kentucky!

  • 5 of 5

We spent several nights in the loft during a fall trip to Kentucky. We found it fun, attractive, clean and comfortable. We really enjoyed walking around Salyersville, visiting your park and looking at the historical buildings. Close to the area attractions.

Superb!!!

  • 5 of 5

Our group rented the two lofts and extra bedroom. We were very comfortable and impressed with the cleanliness and décor of both lofts. Even the pull out sofa's were comfortable! The owner even brought a large thermos of coffee for us each morning, at the time requested, because we were a large group. This was greatly appreciated! We hope to visit again soon!

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.
