  • Great place for kids!

    "This house was great for a girls and kids weekend, including the Galax Fiddler's Convention. Very clean, and we appreciated both the toys and the playground and river nearby, as well as the friendly neighborhood. Thank you!"

  • A Comfy Private Retreat in the Blue Ridge Mountains

    "Our stay at River Oak Retreat was quite enjoyable. The cottage sits high on a hill in the valley outside of Galax. It is a quick 5 mile drive to the town. Once you arrive at the cabin, it is secluded and peaceful. The sound of crickets and peepers was both loud and relaxing. The deck’s view looks across treetops into the valley. If you are looking for a cabin with privacy and the chance to experience the solitude of nature, this is the place. We used the cottage as our base for two days of cycling the New River Trail which has a trailhead on the road into town (the start of the trail is in downtown Galax). It was very convenient. We spent another day touring the Blue Ridge Parkway which was less than a 30 minute drive from the cabin. We also visited Galax’s local farmers market, downtown and the town’s new microbrewery. I highly recommend a visit to the microbrewery; nice people and good craft beer. The cabin itself is very nicely decorated. I believe they just recently refurnished it. It is spacious and comfortable. The kitchen is fully equipped. This place was CLEAN. It was exactly what we were looking for in a vacation home. We would definitely visit the cabin in the future. You might find cabins with a similar price along the trail. What they cannot offer that this cabin offers is privacy and being able to experience the mountains without someone 100 feet away."
