A laid-back, artful Thanksgiving

5 of 5
We booked Larkin's magical property for a family Thanksgiving this year. From our first steps inside we were fascinated by the artful, imaginative touches she has incorporated into the interior and exterior of the cabin. We were comfy and cozy immediately. Despite being rather tiny, the kitchen had everything we needed (except a portable mixer, which I brought) and was a pleasure to work in. We stayed from Tuesday until Saturday, and we could conveniently fill all our grocery and eating out needs at a shopping center four miles away. Big oven cooked our turkey beautifully, plus we made pies and a cake. What helps the kitchen support the creation of dinner for ten is a giant island. Because the weather was mild, we decided to eat at the over-sized picnic table outside in the sun, with the river sparkling 50 feet away. We used the round dining area table as a buffet. Later we enjoyed conversation by the outdoor fire pit. Friday was Christmas crafts with the kids, again at the picnic table. We had so much fun! The children were happy and the adults relaxed. Cabin is exactly as described, only more interesting. Very comfortable and clean. Loved the solitude of the setting in the woods, reached by a "driveway" that has to be a quarter mile in length. One caveat: highway 360 crosses the Mattaponi River very near the property. At first we noticed the traffic, and very quickly we forgot about it. It became part of the experience, one we hope to repeat ASAP. Our dogs had a great time too--they could be off-leash outside and they played, explored, chased each other and generally celebrated their freedom. If you want posh, go somewhere else. If you value creativity, design, art and comfort, I guess we'll be competing for reservations. Oh: Larkin was very responsive and helpful, as well as thoroughly informative about the property.
