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.

Wonderful weekend with family!
Our quick getaway to the River Star was wonderful. The house was perfect, easy access to the river for fishing or just enjoying nature along the water. We are so happy to have found this special place. And we hope to make it back for another weekend.
I am so glad you had a good time! We hope you return soon.
Great place for a vacation!
Nice house, great location and close to town.
I have spent a summer week here once a year for many years --it's wonderful.
River is beautiful in a cooler climate that the sultry one I live in. Close enough to commute to Davis Elkins College for the Augusta Heritage course I participate in yearly. Owner is a "jewel". Place is clean and comfortable.
Perfect family getaway
Patty, thank you for the opportunity to stay at your house. We are always alittle anxious when we rent a new place and have had a few bad choices. The minute we turned that door nob and walked in , we felt like we were home. We went straight thru the front rooms and right out to the gorgeous back yard! Beautiful ! Our grandkids were so excited.
The house has everything you could need for a week or a day . The garage was full of all kinds of great treasures ! We had a blast on the large round raft.
House was spotless , kitchen well stocked , bathrooms very nice.
Fire pit wins best yet by far !
The only thing that upset the little ones ( 2 1/2 and 1 1/2 was the train whistle of all things. Slept thru fireworks but the train got them every time ! 😂�
The river was perfect for the kids and adults to lazy around on tubes. Grandkids Tried alittle fishing but I don't think we were in a good spot. But they got a lot of practice !
Not a negative thing to say. Thanks again !
Great, well stocked house in a fantastic location
River Star has the most items for guests to use of any rental I've stayed in. The garage was accessible and was full of things for guests to use: charcoal grill, propane grill, floating island, corn hole, inflatables galore, bats, balls, frisbee,... The kitchen had all you could ever need.
I contacted the owner about an issue with the hot tub. She was at the house in less than an hour to resolve the issue. Great communication throughout the process.
The house was clean and the beds and furniture are very nice and comfortable. The master is great with a high end recent remodel.
I would definitely stay here again.
Thanks for the review. I'm glad you guys had fun. Your welcome back anytime!
Great Get AWAY!
River Star is everything a house nestled in the mountains should be and so much more. Our stay there was so enjoyable! Beautiful house with all of the amenities along with easy access to town! Everything was perfect! Highly recommend for your stay on the Cheat River! Thank you again Patti for providing us with the most memorable experience!
Thanks Cathy! I'm glad you had a good time. We hope you return soon.
