Why John McLarin chose Shenandoah Valley

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 three boating companies in the area which offer numerous options for floating down the river. Did someone say wine tasting? 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. The river can be accessed by walking, but does not have river access for launching boats due to the path to the river.

Fantastic Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We loved the Cliffside cabin for a Christmas getaway with our sons. John was great about answering questions before our visit and the rental was very smooth. The cabin was well-stocked and the view from the porch was unbelievable! We will rent this cabin again.

Perfect secluded spot on the river

  • 5 of 5

Cliffside cabin is simply perfect. Amazing views of (and an equally amazing stone step walkway down to) the river. Seclusion. And every amenity you'd need to have a relaxing, reasonably priced cabin getaway within a couple of hours from Washington DC. The host was very responsive. I hope to visit again soon.

Better than described! Very easy check-in and check-out

  • 5 of 5

The property was gorgeous and well-kept. River view was perfect. Only downside is the wireless is iffy BUT this was indicated in the advertisement so we were prepared for that. Plus, who wants to be on internet while in mountains anyway....

Nothing will beat the view and the charm and location of this secluded old log cabin

  • 5 of 5

Agree with what most reviewers raved about. The view is second to none. We spent very little time at the cabin but waking to that view off the front porch was amazing. Location is also a huge plus for so many reasons mentioned in other reviews. The "charm" and simplicity of this cabin is not for everyone but our group appreciated it. We also would bring our own linens and pillows next time as they were sparce but the furniture and beds were comfortable. (We misunderstood about the linens and cleaning policy.) Bring drinking water....but water is ok for washing. A larger griddle or frying pan would be nice too for pancakes or french toast. The cabin had newer leather furniture than the vrbo pix. We hope to be back for another visit next year!

Absolutely stunning!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, two kids and I rented this cabin for two nights and we were totally blown away by the view. It truly brought tears to my eyes. To be able to sit on the porch and see a river and a mountain and hear a small rapid at the same time was breathtaking. We loved watching how the view changed with the sun and the weather. My kids (8 and 4) thought it was especially fun to hike down the steep path to the water- they felt like they were explorers :). We did a rafting trip down the Shenandoah River one day and loved that as well. The cabin itself is just what we wanted- a cozy, real log cabin in the woods. We felt very secluded even though the town was just a few minutes down the road. All four of us are looking forward to coming back again!

Front Royal Area:

Front Royal, Warren County and the surrounding area are rich in history and natural beauty and offer many unique and varied year round recreational and leisure activities sure to satisfy our visitors. It is also known as the Canoe Capital of Virginia. thanks in part to the 39 miles of scenic waterways better known as the North and South forks of the Shenandoah River that meet just west of the town of Front Royal, and the main river that continues toward Clarke County, northward. The North and South forks of the river meet at Riverton, west of Front Royal, where it heads north to Clarke County, and ultimately, Harpers Ferry, West Virginia, where it meets the Potomac River. In Warren County the river offers calm waters for a leisurely canoe ride and rapids ideal for kayaking. Boating, rafting and tubing also are popular.

The areas provides numerous opportunities to enjoy the great outdoors by canoeing, tubing, kayaking, hiking, horseback riding, fishing, zip lining, wine tasting, golf or visiting of the two wonderful National or State parks whose entrance are only 6 miles from our cabin.

Skyline Drive / Shenandoah National Park:

Skyline Drive and the Shenandoah National Park bring more visitors to Warren County than any other attraction. The park and drive extend 105 miles over mountain tops from Afton in the south to Front Royal in the north, and parallel a 95-mile portion of the Appalachian Trail. The park draws more than 2 million visitors a year; about 500,000 of them enter at the Front Royal entrance on US 340, about a quarter-mile south of the town.

Wildflowers, more than 205 species of birds, white-tailed deer and black bear abound.

This park is on the South Fork of the Shenandoah River and has more than 1,600 acres along 5.2 miles of shoreline. The park opened in June 1999. In addition to meandering river frontage, the park offers scenic views of Massanutten Mountain to the west and Shenandoah National Park to the east. A large riverside picnic area, picnic shelters, trails, river access and a car-top boat launch make this a popular destination for families, anglers and canoeists. Ten riverfront tent campsites, a campground with water and electric sites, cabins, camping cabins and a group campground are available.

Virginia Canopy Tours

During the canopy tour, participants will enjoy stunning views of the Massanutten Mountains and the gorgeous hardwood forest of the Shenandoah Valley. Guests will learn the rich history of the Shenandoah Valley, native plant species, and the wild inhabitants who make the woods their home.

Participants will soar through the Shenandoah hardwood forest at speeds which can exceed 40 miles per hour and at heights reaching 90 feet above the forest floor - all while attached to two steel cables. The canopy tour finale is an adrenaline pumping 1,035’ zip down the face of the ridge to our rappel.

Allow approximately three hours for our canopy tour, which consists of: ground school, UTV trail ride, 8 zip lines, 1 sky bridge, 1 air stair bridge, 2 nature walks and a rappel.

All participants receive individual safety and braking training and are accompanied by two certified eco-trained guides. Participants are attached to our cables by lanyards whenever above the forest floor. All safety equipment is handled by our guides 100% of the time. Virginia Canopy Tours™ reserves the right to exclude anyone from participation.

Shenandoah River Activities:

There are three boating companies in the area which offer numerous options for floating down the river. The South Fork of the Shenandoah River is one of the nation's best for smallmouth and largemouth bass, rockbass, redbreast sunfish, bluegill, muskellunge and channel catfish. The North Fork, meanwhile, offers anglers smallmouth bass and redbreast sunfish, and the mainstream offers all species except muskellunge.

State residents age 16 and over are required to obtain a fishing license before fishing on inland waters. Nonresidents over age 12 need a license. All persons needing a license also need to purchase a National Forest stamp when fishing in waters within the boundary of the Washington and Jefferson National Forest, except on the North and South forks of the Shenandoah River. Licenses are sold at authorized agents located throughout the county, but not at the county clerk's office.
