Year Purchased: 2005
About the owner: 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 and spending time with my husband, 2 grown children,and my dogs.
Why the Owner Chose Galax: I have lived in this area for 29 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.
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin: 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. There are several walking paths that meander through the woods. 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'.
