Why Scot 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.
What makes this Cabin unique
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.

I had a great time with some friends
Loved this place!
Such a great cabin for a weekend getaway with friends, we'll definitely be back! Cozy cabin with a fully equipped kitchen and such gorgeous views.Extra points for the hot tub and fire pit outside, they really were the icing on top of our fantastic stay.
We arrived after an ice storm hit the area so the walkway down to the cabin was SUPER slippery, we were surprised no one warned us or took care of it before we arrived but after contacting they cleared the way. Don't forget to say hi to the nearby farm cows and cat during your stay!
If only the outside was everything!!
Beautiful location. Cannot beat the scenery. Very quiet and peaceful with beautiful views of the river. We booked this for a romantic getaway and for the most part it was a 5. The deck was wonderful and sitting and gazing at the river was very dreamy. The hot tub was fantastic! The fire in the fire pit on a chilly night was a big bonus. So, why am I rating this a 3? Well, inside things go a bit downhill. It rained one day so we thought we would watch a movie - wrong. The DVD player did not work. It said 'bad disc' for 5 different DVDs, including a brand new one that we brought with us. The microwave was a HUGE safety issue. When you opened the door it was loose and when you looked at the end you see that it's cracked. Should not be used - definitely a safety hazard. We would love to stay again but, were disappointed with the disrepair so will look for other locations.
Thank you for your review Melissa. It would have been great if you would have let me know about the DVD player while you were here and given me the opportunity to bring a new one as Well as the microwave . This is the first I've heard of Both issues and will be addressing them immediately. Thank you again.
great river hideaway
We had a terrific time at the cabin. It's small but was just right for our group, and the big deck and adjoining firepit area were perfect for hanging out. The canoe was in great shape as well as the dock. Would love to return.
perfect place for our get away. We will be back and can't wait.
