About the property

Stillwater Haven is located in the lush and beautiful mountains of western Maryland along the scenic shores of the Youghiogheny Wild and Scenic River corridor (pronounced Yock-a-gay-nee, Yough for short). The internationally acclaimed Upper Yough flows through one of the last remaining wilderness canyons in the eastern United States. It provides some of the best technical Class IV-V whitewater with an impressive average vertical drop of over 115' per mile for 5 miles. Multiple commercial outfitters are available to lead you on a fun filled and exciting rafting trip on the Upper Yough or on other less extreme runs within 30 minutes of Stillwater Haven.

Come enjoy the luxury of our 300 feet of private river front, giving you immediate access to the river. You will eliminate a half mile of flat water paddling via our private and easy take-out area right on the banks of Stillwater Haven. The chalet sits just 50 yards from the riverbank providing you quick and easy access to a hot shower and a change of dry clothes. Celebrate your river trip with a campfire nestled right on the banks of the Yough or in our native wood burning fireplace with an open air pavilion facing the river. Anyone for a game of Bocce Ball on the front lawn?

Our private river access is also the perfect spot for fisherman, giving access to Class 3 Trout stocked waters. Kids or grown-ups alike, can also enjoy a fun, yet relaxing tubing trip of a mile stretch down the Yough to the take-out area in our beautiful Friendsville Town Park. Our local park allows more great amenities with free access to a paved walking area along the banks of Bear Creek and the Yough River, volleyball, basketball, and tennis.

If the weather keeps you from playing outside, Stillwater Haven has numerous on-site activities to keep you entertained. Lots of laughter will be had while enjoying one of our many board games, a game of Ping-Pong, throwing darts, shooting Pool or playing Corn Hole in our lower level pavilion area. If relaxing is the name of the game, then snuggle up by one of the indoor fireplaces and watch your favorite movie or sporting event on our Smart HDTV flat screens. With DirectTV's NFL Sunday Ticket, you'll never miss a play by your favorite team. Bring along your favorite Xbox 360 and Wii games for fun times in the game room. While visiting Stillwater Haven, be sure to relax to the sounds of your favorite tunes over the integrated whole-home audio system, either outside on the 100 feet of covered porch or on one of the multiple zones inside.

We love and know this area and would be honored if you would allow us to be your personal concierge, designing your stay for both outdoor and indoor adventure, or just relaxation. Our thoughtful design offers plenty of open space and flexibility to use the Chalet in multiple different ways. Give us a call so we can customize Stillwater Haven for your specific wants and needs.

No amount of words can describe this special place, or our quaint little town, but we think you'll come to love Stillwater Haven and the Yough River, wishing to return time and again to our little slice of heaven. Come see for yourself!

  • 5 of 5

This house truly has so much to offer, anything you could possibly want or need is provided. The open sleeping arrangements somehow work as long as everyone is flexible. There are enough private rooms with doors for a few families to have their own space. We had an incredible time for my husband‘s surprise 40th birthday party .

Wonderful Host

  • 5 of 5

We had a family reunion at the house and had a wonderful time. Lynn, the owner, was very responsive on any questions we had. She gave us great advise on what to do and where to eat. The house was very well equipped with everything we needed. Hope to come back again next year!

Lynn not only made our family feel welcome, she pampered us as well! We appreciated her help in moving in, her unique art collection in wood, spotless housekeeping, Dove soap "swimming" in lovely soap dishes, thick fluffy towels, comfy beds, labels and organization everywhere, and many, many games including an impressively deluxe ping pong table that stayed busy our whole visit. We enjoyed the beauty of nature at our doorstep as well as the indoor luxury!

Fantastic home with everything you need!

  • 5 of 5

Fourteen of my family members enjoyed a long weekend together. This home has it all! Lots of large spaces for gatherings and enough space for everyone to have a comfortable bed and bathroom. The main kitchen (there's a kitchen on all three floors) was wonderfully stocked and all the drawers are labeled so finding the right pan was easy. We enjoyed watching the kayakers running the river and playing with Lynn's well behaved dogs. We spent a lot of time around the amazing fireplace and playing the many games that Lynn provided.

Lynn was easy to work with and was available to answer all of our questions while respecting our privacy. I would definitely come back and recommend this home to friends.

Awesome house for a group get away!

  • 5 of 5

The house literally has EVERYTHING except for helium balloon air tanks, haha!! The house is equipped with wide range of games from corn hole, board games, volleyball! The kitchen is also equipped with all the cooking devices you need! The house even has a coffee station, so no need to bring your own coffee unless you are picky with the type of coffee you drink! She also has paper towels, cream, flour and sugar! The owner, Lynn is so nice and welcoming and shows you around the house when you arrive! She stays in a little cottage in the back of the house and is available if you have any questions, but does her own thing while you are on the property! This property is only 2 hours 45 minutes from Washington, DC and was the perfect weekend getaway with a group of 20 of my friends! There was plenty of space in the house for twenty people and did not feel crowded! All the beds are super comfortable! The house definitely can sleep more than 20 people if you had a group of 25 or so! We went hiking to fall hole which was a nice activity-it was a bit muddy on the trail so bring old shoes if going on the hike! You can also plan rafting trips as well, which Lynn can help direct you to where to book that if interested! I definitely recommend planning a big group gathering at this house-it has everything you need and I had a wonderful weekend at the house celebrating my birthday! I will be back again!
