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 Galax

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'.

Magazine-esque Cabin with Tons of Privacy

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Cabin at Mill Pond between Christmas and New Years Day to wind down. The property is very private with a long driveway and cleared walking path along the creek. Our dog loved running up and down the path and wanted to spend all day there despite the single-digit temperatures. Inside, the cabin appears to be professionally decorated, giving it an extra level of coziness. There are books upon books to pick up in every room, and nearly a blanket for each of them to curl up with.

As advertised, there is no TV service, but the Internet connection is fast enough to stream live TV. I brought my Chromecast device and used YouTubeTV (what we use at home for streaming TV service) to watch the ball drop on New Years Eve, and to catch some college football bowl games :). So if you need a few minutes of TV on your trip, there are options.

We had a great time and although inside the cabin was nice and warm, next time we may visit in the Summer to enjoy the rocking chair front porch and inner tubes in the creek.

Cozy private cabin

We stayed during Thanksgiving week and we had a great time with out family. The outdoors are amazing and the cabin had everything and more to make our stay unforgettable. Sue Ann was a pleasure to work with, always available and more than helpful.

Beautifully decorated cabin makes you feel right at home!

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed an excellent, relaxing girls’ weekend at the cabin. The directions were spot-on, the cabin was BEAUTIFUL, and the restaurant recommendations were perfect! Sue Ann even came and rescued us when we locked ourselves out on the porch in out pajamas! HA! Wonderful property in a beautiful area; wouldn’t change a thing! We will definitely be back!

We have stayed at multiple vacation rentals over the years, but never at a home so well appointed as this one. Sue Anne's thoughtful touches greet you at the back door with decor that invites one into the serenity of this log cabin. Chocolates and treats await you along with other surprises. We loved our stay with our friends. Our only disappointment was we had to leave too soon! Next time we'll stay one more day. Thanks Sue Anne

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.
