About Tonya Reavis
We are natives of the Galax, VA area. After living in other parts of the United States, we decided to move back home in 1995 to set roots in the most beautiful place we have experienced. I am a breast cancer survivor (since 2012!) and hope in some way to help others going through similar situations find peace and tranquility at our retreat on occasion.
Tonya Reavis purchased this Cabin in 2013
Why Tonya Reavis chose Galax
In our search for the perfect balance in life, we decided to invest in this cabin as the ideal spot to enjoy a home away from home, but not too far away (we live only 4 miles away :) Our hope is to provide a place for you to feel as comfortable as you do in your own home. And for you to find an adventurous spirit in the décor & comforts we offer.
What makes this Cabin unique
I love to make things & am striving to fill the world with little pieces of creativity born from my imagination. That is why you will find a unique feature in our cabin – lots of artsy things & hand painted furniture. Changing the surroundings often is very enjoyable. My husband, Brian, loves the creek, anything outdoors & craft beer. Together, we are filling the cabin and its surroundings with lots of niceties for the well-being of our guests. We are co-owners in the local craft brewery & brick oven restaurant (Creek Bottom Brewing). Basically, we absolutely adore Speckled Trout Cabin. Having you visit & find it to be the perfect getaway is just icing on the cake for us!

Exceeded Expectations 100%
There is not enough space to say everything we would like. A cozy cottage with all the modern conveniences located away from crowds in a serene and beautiful location. The many extra little touches like firewood, locally made soap, local coffee, robes in the bathroom......put this over the top! We highly recommend this property and the owner. We have never used VRBO and were nervous, but my SIL encouraged us to try it out. We will use it again!!
Our short vacation
We absolutely loved the cabin and the beautiful scenery.
Enjoyed the property and location.
Great spot to just chill 👌
Beautiful decor, clean and everything thing you needed -even small details of fire starters , water and coke in fridge- muffins. We were able to enjoy the local Lil’ Creek Botttom Brew each day for lunch.despite CoVid 19 ... only 10 allowed but we were able to be part of the 10. Even some entertaining Geese that visited us often. Very tranquil home and close to trails. Great get away from it all place! Will return for sure.
Exactly what we expected and more! Scored our time!
The Galax area is blessed with various festivals & outdoor recreation. We experience the beauty of all four seasons with a grand show in autumn of scarlet, orange & gold leaves then in winter when the refreshing mountain snows blanket the countryside. The Spring & Summer’s are bursting with gorgeous green foliage, Dogwoods, Mountain Laurels & colorful blooming flowers.
Enjoy a rich bluegrass music heritage at the Old Galax Fiddlers’ Convention, Houston Fest or enjoy a concert at the Blue Ridge Music Center. Downtown Galax is only 4 miles from the Speckled Trout Cabin where you can visit the Rex Theater every Friday night for the Blue Ridge Backroads where bands entertain & refreshments are served. They also host many Saturday concerts and community plays. While downtown, visit the Chestnut Creek School of the Arts or the City Gallery where you will find wares for sale by various fine artists. Don’t leave without having a wonderful smoothie or cup of gourmet coffee at Cones & Coffee, then visit the antique store next door and find just the treasure you are looking for. There are many quaint antique shops, gift shops, book stores, wine shops and more to pop in while you walk the beautiful downtown community of Galax.
Every Friday evening, Saturday & Sunday you can get free tastings at the local craft beer store on Meadow Street (over 400 different Craft beers & they carry local wines too). They will be brewing local beer beginning sometime during the first quarter of 2014. Also stop in the local winery, Mt. Vale Vineyard and have an excellent glass of wine in a wonderful setting.
The fun doesn’t stop there… bike, walk or run on The New River Trail – then go fishing or kayaking in Chestnut Creek (both of these are right outside the Speckled Trout Cabin door!) Other outdoor activities include canoeing on The New River & hiking in the Blue Ridge Mountains. Since you will be famished after all of your exploring, head to Bogey’s Restaurant, Macado’s or The Galax Smokehouse for a scrumptious lunch or dinner. Of course, these are only a few highlights of what you can do for entertainment in the Galax area.
