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

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.

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.

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.

My family and I enjoyed our stay here. Directions were perfect and was easy to find. The house was clean and well kept. The views are amazing. Loved the fire pit and hot tub. We hope to stay here again sometime. Would definitely recommend this to anyone.

City slicker

Beach loving city girl decided to go country for a summer family vacation. Found the beauty of the verdant mountains and the cool clean water of the river a nice refreshing change. The house was well appointed, especially for those who love to cook and entertain. Outdoor dining with beautiful river view, is another added bonus. After dinner, guests can enjoy sitting around a stone fire pit, lamenting about the fish that got away. If dining out is preferred there are two outstanding establishment; Forks Inn, approximately 3 miles from the house, Kelly Rd, just off of Rt 33. City style menu, tasteful decor and breathtaking views. And for a more casual dining experience there is Smoke on the Water located about 3 miles east on Faukner Rd in Revelles Campground. There you can have delicious smoked trout and more. The house provides a variety of outdoor games as well as inflatable floats, tubes and Mabel! ( a comfy couch like float, which you can anchor out, but I recommend you bring your favorite libation with you as well) If floating down river suits you, then head to Revelles Campground (mentioned above) where you can rent tubes, launch from there and float for approximately 3 hours back to the house. The float has a mix of lazy river and mild ripples. Jumping into the hot tub when we got back only improved the experience. If you need a bag a ice, bait or general conveniences , there's Matt's (big red barn) approximately 5 miles from house on Rt 33 west, just after road turns into 2 lanes. And for big town city like food shopping there is Kroger. They even had olive tapenade to replace the one I had forgotten at home. All in all, the house is beautiful, clean and kept in good shape. All the conveniences are well within the usual 5 mile radius. (This is very important, because who wants to spend anymore time in the car then they have to?) So, if you want peace and serenity, mixed with some family and friend time, this is the place to have it all! I will definitely book again next year and I would recommend this house to both country and city folks alike. Enjoy!

Great vacation spot

Patti:
Thank you for an enjoyable week at River Star. The house was cozy and comfortable, the fireplace a wonderful bonus in late November, and we really enjoyed sitting outside around a toasty fire in the fire pit watching the gentle flow of the river.
Although very rural and embedded in nature, we periodically kept in touch with the outside world with River Star’s cable TV and WiFi. I was pleased how well technology worked in a house surrounded by mountains.
The inch or two of snow on Friday morning provided us with a completely different perspective from which to see the surrounding landscapes. It was beautiful.
Although just the two of us were here to celebrate our 44th wedding anniversary (and a birthday) River Star had enough room to accommodate at least two more couples and a few kids.
We enjoyed it immensely, and we will definitely be back as soon as we can.
