Overview

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday cabin in Elkton - River Haven

2 Bedrooms + Loft, 1 Bath (Sleeps 6-8)

River Haven Cottage is nestled on the beautiful Shenandoah River with a spectacular year round view. The very name River Haven hints to its warm and cozy place on the river. Life at the cabin is very low key, just the place to relax and take it easy while having the full features of a home at your finger tips. Explore the river or the nearby national parks, all at your own pace. River Haven has something to offer for all who visit.

River Haven is the perfect place to relax. Enjoy a local hike or sit back on our large deck and enjoy the river. River Haven offers all the comforts of home with the advantages of being located by the Shenandoah River. Bring a pole and lures and enjoy our abundant small mouth bass or take the canoe and tour the river.

River Haven is situated on the northwestern portion of a 200 acre farm named Rivercrest that dates back to an original land grant from the King of England. The original deed granted hundreds of acres to the Moyer/Taylor family who were also distant relatives of our 12th President of the United States , Zachary Taylor. While the Taylors amassed most of their holdings through many local business dealings of the 1800’s, the fertile soil and incredible waterfront beauty of Rivercrest always interested the last heir Everet to farm and cultivate the rich soil and produce abundant crops. In the 1960’s, Mr. Taylor sold roughly an acre of riverfront property to a local businessman and soon after River Haven was born. The previous owners of River Haven upgraded and maintained the waterfront retreat and decided to share its peace, quiet, and solitude with the rest of those looking for a retreat away from the stresses of modern day life. And, to this day, these qualities make River Haven such a unique and incredible property and it invites you to feel like a part of the infamous Shenandoah River like no other can offer. As the owners of Rivercrest and now River Haven we are pleased that the two are once again joined together and we are anxious to add our touches to River Haven and for our guest to experience the stress and tension leaving as you make your way down past the historic farm that we and Mr. Taylor love and cherish and find your peace, solitude, and enjoyment in all that River Haven has to offer.

The Unique Benefits of this Cabin: Explore the river or the nearby national parks, all at your own pace. River Haven has something to offer for all who visit. River Haven is the perfect place to relax. Enjoy a local hike or sit back on our large deck and enjoy the river. River Haven offers all the comforts of home with the advantages of being located by the Shenandoah River.

What makes this cabin unique

A true sense of relief touches you as you rest on the deck and look over the river. Your mind wonders as to who traveled the water ways long before automobiles and you are swept back to a much simpler time.

Guestbook comments from the manager

I had a great time; I was really impressed with the cabin. My daughters and my wife had a splendid time. Something I would consider is the timing to check out. I think it should be 12:00 o’clock due to Saturday night you do a lot and in the morning there is not enough time. I really thank you for the opportunity to share the cabin with us and trust me we are going to come back and fish again and maybe bring someone to help me row the canoe, because my wife wouldn’t get in because the girls were afraid of the canoe in the water. Thanks for everything.

Absolutely lovely little spot on the Shenandoah. "Cozy" doesn't even begin to do it justice. Five stars, and we'll be back for sure!

River Ranch

  • 5 out of 5
Our stay at the River Ranch was wonderful. The hot tub on the deck was heaven in the morning and the perfect remedy for after long hikes. The deck was the highlight of the place with a beautiful view of the river at all different times of day, and we grilled almost every night. The house was comfortable and equipped with TV and games for times of poor weather or just taking a break from the outside. Food stores and restaurants were close by, but a car was needed to get around. It is a peaceful getaway and I would recommend it to anyone.

great cabin

  • 5 out of 5
I came from Colorado to my nephew's wedding at Elkton. This was a very convenient place to stay with my sister and her husband. I can not imagine anymore than 4 people staying here. The loft can only be used by kids and there is only one bathroom. Great shady deck with wonderful views of the river. We were there for the flood last week and had front row seats. A few days later we took out the canoe and saw many turtles, goslings and ducklings. We did contact Kim when we could not figure out the tv and she came by immediately and fixed it. The hot tub worked for us and was quite pleasant. Would stay there again. Emilie

Great weekend but some things to point out!

  • 3 out of 5
We had a great time and the cabin is very peaceful. Kitchen well stocked so made it easy. Cabin clean. The negative things I would have to say is we recieved an email the night of check in at 4:10PM letting us know the hot tub is not working(check in at 3PM)...many people book places specifically for the hot tub feature. We were alittle upset we recieved the email AFTER check in. We wisht they would have told us well in advance...Although disappointed, we just let it go. Also, the loft area does not have stairs, it is literally a ladder to go up to the loft. Not ideal for small kids at all and dangerous. I am pregnant, and my two brothers have young kids so sleeping arrangements were rather difficult with that surprise. The TV did not work all weekend. The front door literally opens up to the one bathroom which was odd. We used the back door all weekend so it was fine. Shower only, no bath. Shower very small. We arent picky people so it worked and we had a great time because it was a short stay but would not recommend an extended stay. The desk on the river is awesome :)

Owner's Response: We take all reviews very serious and use them to help improve River Haven Cabin and make it the best it can possibly be for our customers. To address a few issues, we had recently had a flood in the area, thus knocking out the cable for not only us but a lot of others in the area. We do apologize for this and are looking into other options for our television service. The hot tub has been repaired, I do apologize that you were not notified until on your way but do to scheduling I was not notified until late that day that there were issues, and Once again I do apologize. We take the safety of our guest seriously and have posted on our website that the loft area is ladder accessed and not suitable for children under a certain age. I am glad that you were able to enjoy your stay and partake in the beauty that surrounds the cabin. I will pass along all of your concerns and assure you that they will be discussed and plans will be put into place to avoid these incidents in the future. www.shenandoahcabins.com

Perfect weekend getaway!

  • 5 out of 5
Like the rest of our trip to the Shenandoah Valley, our stay at the River Haven was filled with pleasant surprises and a desire to return -- soon!

There were lots of small touches that we immediately noticed upon checking in, such as the freshly cleaned interior, fresh linens, and ample supply of information that made us feel like it was truly our home for a few days. The river made the perfect wake-up scenery and a very pleasant way to retreat from our day-to-day city hustle. There is a two bed loft that our under-10 year old boys thought was the greatest, and I sense that twenty years from now they will still be telling stories of the "cabin with the loft."

We enjoyed exploring the nearby small towns of Shenandoah and Elkton. For our younger kids, we really liked the WigWam village playground, and we hiked the portage path to the base of the river dam, which is about 400m downriver of the cabin.

We enjoyed Hanks BBQ which was close to Massanutten. We drove about a half hour south and found the Grand Caverns, which was a far better show cavern than the touristy-trappy Luray Caverns. We decided to take a small detour and check out the CrossKeys Winery which had a great Merlot. There was no shortage of new experiences!

I want to thank the owners and property managers. We had a small issue with the cabin that we wanted to bring to their attention and we received literally immediate feedback and follow up to ensure that we were happy.

We would recommend this place to any family looking for some time away from the everyday and we're already looking on our calendar to see when we can repeat the trip again. The pictures are very representative of the property.
