Overview

Photos and Description of this Lost River holiday cabin

2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, sleeps 5 with sofa bed

The Wild and Wonderful mountains of West Virginia are the perfect vacation getaway for this property. Only two hours drive from Washington D.C., (3 hours Baltimore, 3 1/2 hours Richmond, 5 hours Philadelphia) this private cabin is secluded in the woods and offers you the pristine beauty of the Shenandoah Mountains. Near the George Washington National Forest and Lost River State Park, there are a wide range of recreational activities: swimming, horseback riding, hiking, antiquing, fishing, canoeing, archery, as well as fine dining or simple, country eating. During the winter months, skiing is convenient. Lots to choose from or just relax and enjoy a sweet cabin in the woods.

Adventures Abound: From Washingtonian Magazine May 2006 - : 'The Lost River Valley of West Virginia has been found.' 'Tucked between two mountain ridges, the valley, a couple of hours from Washington, is drawing more weekenders. The lure is rugged woodland scenery, tumbling mountain streams, and outdoor fun - hiking, fishing, biking, canoeing, swimming, rafting, climbing, horseback riding.' You'll have your choice of the Lost River State Park, where the Hidden Trails Stables is located for horseback riding, archery, outdoor pool, tennis and a restaurant. Also nearby is the Trout Pond Recreation Area at the George Washington National Forest, with fishing, a gentle lake with a beach for swimming, lovely light walking or more serious hiking.

Serenity: The moment you enter our cabin retreat, you'll be struck by the scent of fresh pine. The cabin is inlaid from floor to ceiling with fresh pine wood and the sweet, woodsy, smell will be with you throughout your stay. It is an authentic country cabin which has been modernized, by bumping out a bay window and building a sun room, so there's lots of light to be had and includes all of the modern amenities, with A/C. You'll have both the rural mountain feel and all of the conveniences from home. Perfect for a romantic getaway or kids will love our back yard where they can knock around a soccer ball. This is a back to nature locale for a couple or a family with children.

Local Restaurants and Shops: While we are a getaway, there are still local businesses to visit during your time in Lost River. The Guest House at Lost River has fine dining with a 40 seat restaurant and bar operating on weekends throughout the year. Lost River General Store offers crafts, lunch and ice cream for tourists on the shopping prowl. Lost River Grill serves breakfast, lunch and dinner throughout the year, as well as an evening bar with Karaoke on weekends. South End Grocery will offer any of your other household needs.

Awesome Cabin!!! You will NOT regret renting it!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I chose this cabin for last minute getaway! Making the reservation was easy as pie and Gordon, the owner, is very kind and responsive. The cabin itself is extremely cute – it looks much better in person than the pictures suggest!! We loved the cabin so much we barely left!! The couch is extremely comfortable and once you sit on it, you don’t want to get up! There is a fireplace in the den which when lit just added to the cabin feel! I appreciated the attention to detail in regards to the cabin’s decorations!! There are board games, puzzles and lots of DVD’s! The cabin has internet and we brought our laptop which we connected to the TV and we were able to stream Netflix with no problem! I was also very happy that there was a charcoal grill on site! We spent a lot of time outside enjoying the fresh air and grilling! My dogs enjoyed exploring the land around the cabin as well! I would without a doubt recommend this cabin to anyone and everyone, and in fact I have already recommended it to friends and co-workers!

Thankful for Cabin Sweet Cabin on Thanksgiving!

  • 5 of 5

Gordon was a pleasure to work with while arranging our stay. He provided lots of information pertaining to the area and took the time to speak on the phone prior to our visit.

The cabin was perfect for our 4 person group. We enjoyed lounging around the house when we weren't out hiking at the State Park or getting to know the locals at the Lost River Grill and Guesthouse. The Grill has a great bar area for watching sports and the Guesthouse has a really cool upstairs with a pool table and games (worth checking out!). The Guesthouse is also just a short walk down the hill from the cabin. Would highly recommend a visit to both restaurants for a snack or a drink, and make sure to stop in some of the shops while you are in the area! There is a market/specialty shop as you pull into the drive near the house that has some local meats and eggs, as well as apparel and gifts.

The cabin does not have cable but there are lots of great movies to choose from. We had a group of UofM and Ohio State Alum and had no problem connecting to the internet to watch the game via laptop. Since we were visiting over Thanksgiving we had quite a few meals around the table. Gordon had everything we needed to cook our Thanksgiving Feast and set a beautiful table.

All in all it was a fabulous stay and our whole group agreed we would go back. A sincere thank you to Gordon for creating such a lovely getaway so close to the DMV.

Great Cabin! Wonderful time!

  • 5 of 5

I was looking to get away and relax for a few days and enjoy total peace and quiet. The cabin and Lost River, WV were perfect. The cabin is awesome and contains everything that was needed to help relax and enjoy time away from home. The cabin is located in a mountain development but is very private and isolated and easy to drive. It's very close to all the main sites. It rained a few days, but we were very comfortable and relaxed with just chilling in the cabin. My dog enjoyed playing in the yard and I was happy and comfortable to allow him to run around and play off leash. In addition, we enjoyed a wonderful time at the Lost River State Park, which is very close. I strongly recommend spending time at this cabin and I look forward to us renting again!

Owner's Response: I really appreciate your review. You are correct that the cabin feels secluded and dogs can easily run off leash in the large yard behind my place. It sounds like your stay was just as you wanted, relaxing and enjoyable. Thanks again for your business and I welcome you to return in the future. Sincerely, Gordon

Wonderful jewel in the woods

  • 5 of 5

I had been back from this cabin for a few weeks now, but it hasn't been off my mind. This cabin offered such a pleasant feeling that is sure to last for a while. I had a great time of relaxation, reading, studying, and just purely being. The cabin is very clean and located in a peaceful and quiet surrounding. The access to the cabin is very easy yet once you are there, it feels worlds away. I have all the good memories of this sweet place that lives up to its name. I would definitely go back soon.
