Galax cabin description



Previous renters said: 'This is a lovely spot away from it all! We were seeking a 'quiet' get-away and Fernwood Cabin fit the bill perfectly....a gem...we enjoyed your cabin so much.'

On a hill in Carroll County, Va. and just 1.5 miles to the Blue Ridge Parkway is Fernwood Cabin. The cabin is just 15 minutes from Hillsville and Galax, Va. and sits on the edge of the Crooked Creek Area. Come walk or bike the New River Trail. Stay in a log cabin which is new, nicely furnished with hardwood floors and an oriental rugs in the living room/kitchen area and the sitting area on th second floor. At the entrance,a camel back sofa and upholstered chair sit next to a stacked stone electric fireplace with remote. An antique reproduction kitchen table and four chairs are in the kitchen which has pine cabinets. There is a walnut three drawer chest against the wall steps. The down stairs bedroom has a queen size poster bed and a ball footed chest which sits on a room sized rug. The full bath is on the first floor. A large flat screen tv sits above the rock fireplace mantle with a dvd player available. There is a radio and cd player available.

Robes, coffee and a welcome basket are provided. Wrap in a cozy robe and sit on the back deck. The back door of the cabin takes you to a covered deck that overlooks the mountains. Sit on rockers on the porch or eat your meals on the porch table. A rock walk leads to the front porch which faces out toward the entrance road and a wooded lot across the road. Four large rocking chairs are available to sit on the two porches. The road is paved to the house which has a gravel driveway that runs next to the house.The home has a heat pump and is comfortable both in the summer and winter.

There is a loft and the rails surround the top of the second floor. The second bedroom which has an opened side toward the main living area, has a maple bedroom suit, desk and chest of drawer.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 1998

                  About the owner: As lifelong residents of the area, we hope to provide a retreat for those who long for a beak from the rat race we all experience these days. We're now retired from busy, stressful careers, and we know that a weekend or more away in the beautiful rural Blue Ridge Mountains will rejuvenate your spirits.

                  Why the Owner Chose Galax:
                  The cabin is on a hill overlooking the Blue Ridge Mountains. Roughly hewn logs lend a feeling of going back to the past. It is a perfect place to slow down and think or to just take a walk.
