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.

Great river cabin

  • 5 of 5

We had a great weekend stay at this river cabin. It has everything needed to have a fun and relaxing time. We had a wonderful time exploring the river, sitting by the firepit, and resting in the hammock. Zoar State Park was just a short drive away which offers nice hikes. Larkin was a great host and made us feel at home.

If you enjoy boating, fishing, swimming... the Mattaponi River is the place for you. This house sits about 50' from the edge of the river with 3 kayaks and a canoe for your convenience. Beautiful ZOAR STATE FOREST is just across the river so hiking and park activities are easy! There's a public boat ramp about 1000' away (but totally out of eye shot) but kayaks and canoes con launch from the floating dock here. The river is freshwater and tidal. At low tide its 10 or so feet deep near the shore (old channel) .about 4 or 5 in the middle, and even less on the other side. Bottom is mostly sandy! Currents are usually not very strong, and every12 hours stops completely and changes direction. Very user friendly!

. Aylett is close to Richmond (50 min.), DC (90 min) Willamsburg (60 min) with easy access to fast moving roads.

Other Activities: KINGS DOMINION Close!! 30 min -Bush Gardens and OUTLET stores are about40 min away. New badmitten set!
