                          Year Purchased: 2012

                          About the owner: River Haven is owned by Paul and Linda, mother and son. It is their sincere pleasure to offer River Haven to you as your home away from home. Your Cabin Concierge is Kim. Paul, Linda and Kim are life long residents of the Elkton and Shenandoah area and share a love for the Valley and for River Haven.

                          Why the Owner Chose Elkton:
                          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 at this Cabin:
                          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.
