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.

Perfect Weekend Getaway!

  • 5 of 5
The cabin was warm and inviting and certainly the cleanest vacation place I have ever visited! We enjoyed the area, although there isn't much to do in the immediate area. As long as you don't have a problem driving 30 minutes to an hour, you will find plenty of activities and beautiful views! The cabin owner shared a wealth of information on where to eat and things to do as well as directions. She even gave us fresh bread for the visit! My husband and I had a great time and look forward to visiting again!

Owner's Response: Thanks for visiting and I am glad you enjoyed the cabin. We try to direct visitors to activities in the area. Galax is about 9 miles away through the country. Mt. Airy is about 30 minutes away. Lots of people like to visit both towns. Andy Griffith's home was Mt. Airy and there are activities there that associate itself with his show. Hope you visit again soon.

va cabin 2013

  • 5 of 5
The cabin was a cabin in outward appearance, but had all the comforts of home inside. It is small, but has plenty of room for a vacation house. Description was accurate, and the photos reflected exactly the beauty of the site and the cabin's appearance. Very clean and well-maintained. Attractively decorated, with comfortable beds, and enough privacy with the nice sitting room upstairs. Not soundproof from bedroom to bedroom, but as to be expected. Water tastes good, not city water. All recommendations by the owner as to restaurants and activities appropriate for my family were very well received by all. Highly recommended is the Blue Ridge Music Center; we would return to see more of it and hear more bluegrass music. Delightful! Would have liked to stay longer.

A very pleasant stay

  • 5 of 5
We had a great stay and found the cabin very "cute" (or charming). The cabin is very nice - very efficient use of space - felt just perfect for four adults. The pictures probably don't even do it justice, you really won't be disappointed with it.

The area was nice, just a few minutes from the Blue Ridge Parkway and about 10-15 minutes from town. It's very quiet out there and that's exactly what we were looking for.

You'll enjoy your stay and Judy is very responsive and easy to work with.

We enjoyed our time at this adorable, clean and peaceful cabin. We loved the open floor plan, lovely porches and beautiful yard. The owners were great - easy to deal with and accommodating. The location was equally convenient. We highly recommend it!
