About Suzanne Thompson

Clayton and Suzanne settled in the NC mountains after he retired from the Navy. She is a mystery author and he owns a book store. They enjoy traveling, especially to France.

Suzanne Thompson purchased this cabin in 2013

Why Suzanne Thompson chose Blue Ridge Mountains

They fell in love with this lake cabin the minute they laid eyes on it and decided right then and there to create a little getaway for themselves that they could share with others. They have enjoyed redecorating and adding little touches that would make Petite Maison du Lac special for their guests.

What makes this cabin unique

A lot of people don't even know that Ashe Lake exists. It seems remote but it is actually close to a lot of amenities and plenty of activities. When you pull up and step out of your car you will smell the pine trees and maybe hear the splash of a jumping fish or a duck on the lake. Instantly, you feel relaxed.

A perfect Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at the cabin! Having stayed at a few cabins in the past, a few things notably better...

1) The kitchen appliances and cookware were in really excellent condition. We like to pack in our food and cook during out stay, and there is nothing worse than a skillet so scratched up you can't flip an egg. Everything in the kitchen is really well maintained.

2) Well stocked amenities. I love that there is some coffee, K-cups, seasoning, non-stick spray, etc. in the pantry. I try to bring it all, but there is nothing worse than starting with nothing!

3) We thought sauna was interchangeable with Jacuzzi, but in fact they were separate amenities! The cabin has a Jacuzzi AND an infrared sauna.

4) The views from the porch and all the rear windows were really stunning. It rained while we were there but it didn't take away from the tranquility or the views.

Thoughts for future guests...

The cabin is stocked with a starter supply of firewood. If you plan to use the fire place and the fire pit, it might not be a bad idea to bring an extra cord of wood. It was cold and rainy the weekend of our visit so we went through the wood pretty quickly.
