GREAT MOUNTAIN GETAWAY ON THE SHENANDOAH RIVER!

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.

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.

Perfect weekend getaway!

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.

Well two things happened we didn't have the code to get in, and the magor issue was no TV in the living room nor internet svc was a very down fall on this part. The cabin itsself was nice and cozy but we should had been told before we came down that the TV and interent svc was down for over 2 weeks and we were not told of this problem. I was very disappointed in finding this out when we arrived. It rained all day on Sunday so we could not watch any of the football games other than an 19" tv in the bedroom. Nice location it's better for a summer retreat in my opinion and not for a winter adventure. I beleive if you want good customer svc you should be very truthful to your customers of any issues the cabin has before you make that long journey and we did not get that chance. Over all I rate our trip a 4 due to a major issue of no TV nor Internet svc if somehting had happened we would had no way of getting help to us since they didn't as well have any phones at the cabin and cell svc was out of reach.
Thank You Kindly,
Anita & Tom Disney
Owner's Response: We are very sorry that the lack of T.V service was an issue during your relaxing peaceful retreat. After your departure we investigated further, the internet was working fine and we were able to obtain connection. As for no phone, in our final paperwork we send out it clearly states that cell phone service in the area is sometimes not very good and even listed what providers in the area service was best with. A key code is always listed in the final paperwork as well and apologize if for some reason it had been omitted. We do understand your concern regarding the phone and your safety had something happened, and will be reviewing our options on this issue. Once again we apologize for any inconvenience this posed during your stay and are constantly searching for ways to ensure this does not happen in the future. It is very hard, when working with and outside provider, to get a resolution in a timely manner. I do apologize for not letting you know prior to your stay and will implement this action into all future situations. We do value your feedback as we find this very helpful in making River Haven Cabin the best it can possibly be.

Cabin was clean and well kept. Expansive decks and the fire pit with ample firewood allowed us spend a lot of our time outdoors. The canoe made for a fun day on the river. Only minor drawback was that proximity to a rail depot or some such produced the occasional industrial din detracting from the quiet - by no means a deal-breaker. In short, absolutely a worthwhile way to spend a weekend, and I would highly recommend.

Clean, but MUCH smaller than expected

  • 3 out of 5
  • Review Submitted: 14-Oct-2013

The cabin is quaint but is so much smaller than depicted in the pictures. The entrance to the cabin is through the bathroom which is quite odd. Also, the furniture arrangement in the cabin is not situated in a way to make for a cozy lounging situation. This is something that was quite evident on a rainy weekend such as we had. If you are stuck with less than average weather, there really isn't a central area where a group larger than 2 can lounge and relax in.

That being said, the place was very clean. Our kids loved the loft and had a blast bunking up there. That space is in no way suitable for adults to sleep comfortably in.
