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, VA, USA:
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.
