Unique Location


New River Trail (New River Trail State Park) is one of the country's premier rail-trails. Created from an old railroad right-of-way donated by the Norfolk Southern Railroad, the trail runs 57 miles, from Galax, through Foster Falls, to Pulaski. Around 39 miles of the trail runs parallel to the New River.

New River Trail includes many railroad-related features, including dams, sky-high trestle bridges, and a couple of lengthy tunnels. In addition, a variety of activities are available along the trail. You can enjoy horseback rides, biking, boating, and fishing.

At the Galax trailhead, you'll find a red caboose to explore. We have direct access to the New River Trail, so you pay no parking fees. 
Unique Culture


The Blue Ridge Music Center is a music venue created to preserve the traditional music of the Blue Ridge Mountain region. Genres such as bluegrass, folk music, and blues are represented. Past performers have included Doc Watson and Ricky Skaggs.

While you're at the Blue Ridge Music Center, make time to drop by the visitor center and museum for in-depth information about the musical history of our region.

The center also has a couple of relatively short hiking trails that allow you to explore the surrounding area. The trails are suitable for the entire family.

Hours vary, so call ahead if you plan on visiting.

So clean, comfortable and peaceful. We were in Galax to ride our bicycles on the New River Trail and the cabins are so convenient, we could just ride about a hundred yards and we were on the trail. It was so quiet and beautiful to sit on the rockers on the back porch after a days ride to watch the creek, the herons, the kingfishers, the deer. The bed (and bedding) was among the best I've ever encountered and the cabin was thoughtfully arranged.
Exceeded expectations. Heronita, Trip Advisor
We have been coming to The New River Cabins for years. We have never had a bad experience. The cabins are always VERY clean and very well stocked with everything that you need to cook a meal. The gas grill on the back deck overlooking Chestnut Creek is always clean and ready to go. Having the New River Trail right beside the cabins is so convenient to ride your bikes or go for a walk. We always see wild life......Deer, Geese, Rabbits, Ground Hogs..... After a long bike ride returning to the cabins and jumping in the Awesome Jacuzzi tub is the perfect end to a perfect day. We promise your first trip to the cabins will not be your last !!

My partner and I wanted to venture out just a little from our 'shelter in place' bubble. We love biking the New River Bike Trail, thus placed a call to the New River Trail Cabins. They were open and responsive to my questions about safety in the time of COVID. We brought our own food. Their outdoor gas grill is perfect for cooking meals. We brought our own cast iron skillet and had eggs and omelettes in the morning. They had a toaster oven and microwave. Breakfasts and dinners on the outside porch looking out on Chestnut Creek. We loved our stay and highly highly recommend New River Trail Cabins
Super Clean! Quiet and Lovely view. Libby W, Trip Advisor
