About Patti Reckart

Our family fell in love with The Shaver's Fork of The Cheat River. We live close by in Elkins, WV and love to get away to fish, float and relax at the river. I am originally from New York and my husband is a native West Virginian. We have two beautiful children.

Patti Reckart purchased this house in 2010

Why Patti Reckart chose Elkins

River Star is a great location. It has one of the best locations to access the river. It is a gradual access (I call it my river beach) into a great swimming hole. The river has riffles above and below our swimming hole. The property also has a beautiful trickling creek that runs through the property. Kids love to play here as well as in the river. The property boasts three lots, with a lot of room to play yard games or pop a tent.

RiverStar was outstanding!

  • 5 of 5
I am so glad we selected RiverStar for our short vacation stay. The property was clean, comfortable, and had everything our two kids could possible need to keep them entertained. The kitchen was extremely well stocked and centrally located to the rest of the house. We loved having our morning coffee by the river and the kids loved the river and the fire pit. We toasted marshmallows and hot dogs, and had some great conversations, which was a real bonus! I had brought a ton of mosquito spray and was extremely surprised when I never had to use it! And I have to say, I don't know what kind of bed you have in the Master Bedroom, but I slept better than I have in weeks. Loved the skylight! Thank you so much for maintaining such a terrific property! We are very much looking forward to a return stay in the future!

Ahh, summer time on Shavers Fork

  • 5 of 5
Our family had an excellent holiday at River Star. 2 kids, 5 and 8 stayed completely occupied between the water, the shore, fishing, and a few rest breaks to warm up watching DVDs on the couch. For the guys, lots of fishing, built a fire in the ring outside one evening for s'mores (and fire fly collecting by the kids). We ate well with the fully equipped kitchen and choice of either gas or charcoal grills. The water was wonderful for swimming. There's a deeper hole just by the house excellent for a dip any time of day. We even saw 2 beaver making their way down stream. Peaceful, comfortable, lovely.

Nice get away to celebrate New Year Eve of 2014

  • 5 of 5
We were pleased with our stay at River Star House. The listing photos were good, but in real life the house, the amenities & the location were exceed our expectations! An environmental science such Feng Shui, would properly describe this house and surrounding! The owner provided us with detail directions to the house and she was very helpful to answering our questions. We are looking forward to come back at summer time and we will certainly recommend this house to our friends. We would recommend to visit two nearby cities: Elkins & Parsons.

Nice

  • 5 of 5
The River Star was nice for a relaxing weekend with friends. It was spacious and comfy at the same time, as well as peaceful by the river. This is the type of vacation spot that makes you feel like you should just stay there and not venture out much. However, downtown Elkins is not far if you do want to do some shopping and dining. We hiked Seneca Rocks after we left for the weekend and it was only about 30 miles away. The River Star would be a nice home base for someone who wants to explore wild, wonderful West Virginia.
