    Feed your life force and indulge the ecothusiast in you.

    Scenic Front Royal, or "Virginia's Outdoor Playground" as it's also known, is in the breathtakingly picturesque Shenandoah Valley. From hiking and fishing to canoeing and birding, this place is a treasure trove of eco-friendly activities.

    Peacefully float, paddle or cast a rod into the Shenandoah River, said by some to be the best Small Mouth Bass fishing in Virginia! Visit the Shenandoah River "Raymond R. Guest" State Park. It affords trails for biking, horseback riding and primitive riverfront camping, as well as level hiking with great wildflower and river views. Both the River and the Park are part of the Virginia Birding and Wildlife Trail. 

    If the primitive riverfront camping is a little bit of a stretch for you, there are Virginia Green certified loding partners in Front Royal that will ease your carbon footprint worries. Killahevlin is on the National Register of Historic Places and the Virginia Landmarks Register, and is an inviting Irish-style Edwardian mansion. Lackawanna B&B is a restored 1869 Italianate home on two acres facing the Shenandoah River.
