Overview

Elkton Cabin Rental Photos and Description

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 owner

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.

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was the perfect surprise romantic getaway for my boyfriend over the holidays. We had one slight issue with scheduling (the property owners had a personal emergency and mixed up our arrival date, meaning the cabin had not been fully cleaned for our stay). We arrived at 11 pm and they had someone there sorting out the issue within 20 minutes. They responded in the middle of the night and were sweet, apologetic, and made us feel right at home. They made sure we had everything we needed and even brought by breakfast the next morning to make up for the error. Paul was easy to reach and worked hard to solve the problem and Kim was sweet, smiling, and absolutely wonderful to us. The cabin is run by some truly wonderful people!

The cabin itself was cozy, the view was incredible, and our dogs loved waking up and being free to explore the property. We had a great time hiking in the areas around the house, exploring the nearby town, and winding down in the hot tub at the end of the day. Everything about our trip was perfect, even the scheduling error worked in our favor because we got to meet the wonderful people behind the scenes.

My only complaint would be that we had to leave! I could have stayed forever. We will definitely be back!!!

Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay. We had enough to do on the property. As you see from the picture, the daily canoeing was a hit. There was no need to leave like we previously thought. Great for all ages and next time we plan on bringing our kayaks. Thanks for sharing your wonderful home.

Until next time,

Kimberly

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!
