About Rebecca L. Williams

I grew up in this house and am the 5th generation to own the property. The house holds wonderful memories of my Mother's growing up years here as well as my growing up years in this same house! Thus, the name of Days to Remember at Granny's! The house does hold wonderful, warm memories and you will immediately feel the calming and relaxing effects upon entering ... days of peace and quiet and summer relaxation. It is a happy house.

I live nearby in Salem, VA,and often spend weekends or a week at a time at the Galax house with my husband and our grandchildren!

Why Rebecca L. Williams chose Galax

This property has been passed down through the generations and I am fifth generation to own it. I love the peace and calm and the renewing of wonderful memories of love and family in this house. It feels of a bygone time ... however, the name of 'Days to Remember' is reminiscent of wonderful past memories as well as for you to make memories and 'Days to Remember' while here.

What makes this farmhouse unique

Big front porch on which to relax and watch the world go by! Gorgeous view across the meadows from the porch. Beautiful lawn and picnic space under the old chestnut trees. Relaxing sun porch on which to nap or read!

100+ year old farmhouse located in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Grayson County, Va. Great value for a long weekend or a longer getaway. Large front porch for relaxing. Spacious yard with picnic table and gas grill located in back yard area under the old chestnut trees.

The Fall of the year is a wonderful time to visit the Grayson County area ... the changing leaves are magnificent; the Blue Ridge Parkway is at its most beautiful, the biking trails are more scenic. Sit on the front porch and see the beautiful changing leaves from there, too!

Minutes from the Blue Ridge Parkway and the Blue Ridge Music Center; Galax and the Rex Theater, the Chestnut Creek Arts Center, and the antique and consignment shops on Main Street; new River and the New River Trail; Mt. Airy, NC, and Andy Griffith's Mayberry; the multiple wineries of VA and NC; Virginia Tech is only an hour away; beautiful golf courses are nearby in VA and in NC; and the Barter Theater and historic Abingdon, VA, are easy driving distance, too!

The music of the mountains is available at the Fiddler's Convention, the Rex Theater, the Blue Ridge Music Center and all along the Crooked Road Trail. The historic Lincoln Theater in Marion, VA, which hosts the Song of the Mountain on PBS every Saturday night, is within an easy drive, too. You fill find the bluegrass and old time mountain music in multiple venues during the warm months!

Greensboro and Winston Salem, NC, and Roanoke, VA, are within easy driving distance if you seek the larger city entertainment or activities. However, we think you will enjoy the rural life and all of the wonderful things offered by the location of this house!

The National BBQ Competition held in Galax each year in July offers multiple competitors and an opportunity to sample some of the best BBQ in the United States!

Quaint Farm House

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed ourselves very much.

It was a quaint house and the garage was a plus for our motorcyles.

It was 4 miles from the Blue Ridge Parkway which was great for us as we enjoyed riding the morocycles.

The only negative was only one shower which was very small.

Wonderful Weekend!

  • 5 of 5

We took a weekend ladies trip this past weekend for our Rook card club and booked this wonderful old home. It was truly like coming home when we arrived. The description noted was extremely accurate and for this particular booking I dealt directly with the owner Becky. She was wonderful and very attentive to our booking, making sure I had received all information prior to arrival. She had restaurant menus available at the house and gave me ideas when we spoke on the phone and she was spot on. I had been in the area a couple of times previously with my husband vacationing so we conversed about some places that my husband and I had visited. I highly recommend "Granny's". It has a warm welcoming atmosphere. If the walls could talk and tell the tales of our card playing and laughter, you would be laughing yourself!

Fantastic Family Reunion 2016

  • 5 of 5

This home earns 5 stars because it is a wonderful home place out of history. A well kept older home that reflects a time past but not forgotten. From the minute you walk in you feel at home. This was the first time i tried this type of lodging and has changed the way i will book my travel arrangements.

Hope it is available for my next visit. No hotel/motel can come close. Loved every minute of our stay.

Comfort at Granny's Place

  • 4 of 5

This property was exactly as advertised.

It was a family home at one point in time, and was converted to accommodate rentals.This home looks like your Granny's house, including all of the memories that come along with it.

We had nine people in our party, including several teenaged girls. The home was extremely clean, functional, well-kept, cozy & comfortable, and met all of our needs. We will be staying here again the next time we are in Galax.

It is a beautiful property, located very close to shopping & restaurants.

The only reason I did not give it five stars is because Granny's house is in need of a little updating.

felt right at home

  • 5 of 5

This home was very relaxing and felt like we stepped back in time to visiting grand mom. Everything was clean and roomy, and comfortable. We only slept there at night because we were off during the day, so it met our needs perfectly
