About Judy Alderman

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.

Judy Alderman purchased this cabin in 1998

Why Judy Alderman 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.

Beautiful cabin!

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at this beautiful cozy cabin. It was so convenient to the Blue Ridge Parkway. Our granddaughter and her best friend liked having their own sitting area, bed and half bath in the loft. Everything was provided that we needed. The only negative was no phone service in case of emergency (cell phones had no signal). Mrs. Alderman was a really a nice person to work with.

Perfect cabin for relaxing.

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at this cabin over the Fourth of July weekend. We were hoping for quiet and relaxation and this place fit the bill! We both like to cycle and the cabin is close to great cycling areas along the New River Trail. My husband likes to fish and there were plenty of spots to choose from as well. We've stayed in the area before and this cabin is our favorite. So peaceful - the drive to the cabin is beautiful, very picturesque.

The cabin is warm and beautifully decorated. My favorite spot was the sofa in the loft area - perfect for curling up with a good book and watching the clouds. The only downside is the lack of cell/internet service. We have Verizon as our cell phone carrier and were not able to get any type of service. It's great to be unplugged but would appreciate the ability to place a call if necessary.

Owner's Response: So glad you had a good time. We are getting a cell phone signal booster and hope that will help. Verizon does not pick up well this deep into the woods. Come again soon. Judy/Fernwood Cabin
