Why John McLarin chose Fork
Location, location, Location- Our cabin is the perfect home base for all your outdoor activities and adventures in the Shenandoah Valley. Our log cabin is secluded and built on a 100 foot cliff above the Shenandoah River with 35 acres of privacy. The Shenandoah River State Park and the Skyline Drive northern entrance are both only a ten minutes drive. The newly built Canopy Tours zip line was just open in the summer of 2014 which takes over 3 hour to complete. If you’re more interested in water activities; swimming, fishing or boating is all just a walk or 10 minute ride. There are over 30 wineries within 30 minutes of our cabin with new ones opening every year. We hope you will choose our home base for a memorable getaway.

Quiet Weekend Getaway
The property is pretty much what I expected. It was clean and very comfortable. It was very secluded and all that you could hear was the occasional moo from a cow somewhere off in the distance and the train that rolled by twice a day. It was so nice and quaint. We all enjoyed our stay very much thank you very very much.
Quiet, quaint, peaceful and just what we needed!
Driving up to the property on a gravel road in the middle of the woods was very exciting! Indoor and outdoor fire places was very enjoyable as well as having the wood provided for us! Front porch views with coffee in hand made for a great start to the day. The cabin is equipped with puzzles, games and other pastimes to enjoy. Kitchen had all the gadgets and tools needed to make meals and two big couches to lounge in and listen to nature! We throughly enjoying our relaxing weekend in the cozy cabin and will be sure to return “same time next year”
Thanks for taking the time to write a review for our cabin.
We appreciate feedback from our guests. We hope you return again soon.
Excellent proximity to SNP and comfy accommodations
Nice cabin and great outdoor space for kids to run around.
Great location...easy drive from D.C. (took us under 1.5 hours to get there [during non-rush hour]), secluded yet easy to get into Front Royal if you need stuff, and John was very responsive and helpful. We loved the cabin itself, especially the fireplace. We'll return!
Thoreau style adventure— Just perfect
Exactly what we were looking for to celebrate our anniversary. Charming. Tucked away. Amazing natural surroundings. Awesome fireplace!! We will back.
New Year’s Get Away
Fantastic location with wonderful views of the mountains and Shenadoah River. It’s a very relaxing environment near Front Royal with some wildlife in the area. Would suggest some more basic supplies (soap, trash bags, sharp knives) in the cabin.
Thanks for writing a review. We really appreciate the feedback especially when our guests provide constructive feedback on areas of improvement.
Thanks again for staying at our cabin.
