About John McLarin

Our cabin was built by my great uncle back in 1934, which we renovated back in 2009. We have been able to share this special place with 100's of guests over the past years

John McLarin purchased this cabin in 2009

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.

Perfect escape for our family!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time during our weekend stay at Cozy Cabin. It was so peaceful and relaxing and just what we needed to recharge. The cabin was very clean and provided everything that we needed to enjoy our stay. The AC is nice and cold and that's very important to me. The pups had a great time exploring nature close to the cabin and the view from the deck was amazing. It was secluded so we had no one else to deal with just us and nature. Thanks for allowing us to enjoy your cabin. We will definitely be returning!

Loved the Cozy Cabin!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed for 11 nights late July to start august. Beautiful cabin and scenery: Nice kitchen, clean and equipped with everything we needed. Living room we didn't use much as we mostly sat on the nice padio and overall wasn't there much. When we were, we felt at home. Nice bathroom, clean and again equipped with everything we needed.

The nature and overview is beautiful, and animals are right outside. We saw a black bear right outside the cabin - wandering past us and our car. Saw a possum, several squirrels and a lot of birds.

The cabin is located central to both Front Royal and Luray, and there are a few minutes ride to the Skyline Drive, which is amazing! Easy access to a lot of highways and many attractions!

Furthermore John is an amazing host! We had a very nice mail correspondance prior to our visit, and when we mixed up dates, he reacted quick and was kind to help us sort it out! We highly recommend both the Cozy Cabin and John as a host! <3

Loved Cozy Cabin

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I, and our two daughters, had a great weekend at the Cozy Cabin. The beautiful views, surrounding nature, and charm of the old wood cabin took us away from the hustle-bustle. The walkway down to the river is a little tricky, but worth the adventure. We'll be back!

Perfect Weekend Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This is the coziest little cabin! It was absolutely perfect for a weekend getaway in the woods for me and my boyfriend. The pictures show a great description of the property but still don't do it justice for just how beautiful it really is. We had everything we needed. The view of the river from the deck is absolutely stunning!! It was hard to leave when the weekend came to an end, but we will definitely be renting again in the future!

Miss it already!!

  • 5 of 5

This was just what the Dr. ordered!! A beautiful place to get away and just unplug and relax! The Cabin was comfortable and had all of the amenities we needed for a wonderful weekend! The deck was large and had a wonderful view of the Shenandoah River with Mountains in the background. The pictures do not do it justice! Even though it was private and secluded, it was only a couple of minutes off of the main road, and only a few miles from the nearest stores.

The owner was very accessible to any questions we had. We will be coming back!
