                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2010

                  About the owner: 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.

                  Why the Owner 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.
