I stayed at A Place by the Parkway with some fellow students while doing a project in the town of Galax. Though the cabin is probably better suited to couples or young families, there is a sleeper sofa and room for an air mattress, so it was very economical for us to split the room rate three ways. Though we were in Galax to work on a project, and not to enjoy the area, we had a great stay. The cabin was absolutely spotless, and the secluded location was just lovely – but not too far off from the town. Having a full-sized sofa and table with chairs was a great feature. There was enough space for us to all spread out and it felt more like we were staying in someone’s house, and not a hotel room. The cabin came fully stocked with dishes, and even paper towels and dish soap, so we were able to use the kitchen for snacks even though we were only staying one night. Coffee is provided, but bring your own tea bags. I would not hesitate to recommend A Place by the Parkway to anyone traveling in the area. It’s a comfortable, relaxing place to stay, and a great bargain too!
