Quaint cabin in the woods is the perfect retreat from a hectic lifestyle.
About Nathan Dehnke
I am medically retired United States Airborne Infantryman working as a civilian for the government in Washington, D.C. My passions include being an amateur photographer as well as builder of simple furniture pieces out of re-purposed pallets (some of which can be found in the cabin). I have also recently taken up acting here in Germany at a community theater. I bought this cabin as my "getaway" from the hustle and bustle of D.C., but I cannot enjoy it as frequently as I would like, so I am happy to share My Lost River Oasis with you - I hope you take as much pleasure from it as I do!
Nathan Dehnke purchased this Cabin in 2013
Why Nathan Dehnke chose Lost River
I looked at properties from the Shenandoah Valley to Mathis in West Virginia, but this beautiful cabin kept pulling me back. Every time I get off Interstate 81 and start heading West to this oasis, I already start to feel rejuvenated just knowing what awaits me at the end of my short trip. No other cabin or property was able to capture my heart and soul the way this cabin on Timberline Drive did, so how could I not fall in love?
What makes this Cabin unique
On my first visit to this cabin with my real estate agent, I was immediately struck by how beautifully she stood above the quiet road. And when I walked in, her gorgeous wood floors gleamed as I walked around and then stepped outside to see a wonderful view of the morning sunrise peeking through the tall, majestic trees found all over this property. The beauty, serenity, and possibilities hidden within this little cabin were what I could not find anywhere else and which make this a unique vacation spot for anyone.

The cabin was wonderful better than what we expexted the driveway was scary but we made
The property was so relaxing we felt like we were at home would absolutely recommend this cabin
Beautiful area of West Virginia
My husband and I enjoyed our stay despite food left in the refrigerator and no dish towels to clean dishes. We had to go into town and buy a dish sponge to clean our dishes. Other than that, we loved the area and the serenity and peacefulness of the cabin.
Thank you for your review! I will work on making the experience at my cabin even better next time!
A modest little place that is very tucked away in the West Virginia mountains. Great getaway for small groups who seek time to relax, enjoy nature, and take a break from city life.
The cabin isn't a perfect place to stay, but it is exactly what a cabin is meant to be.
Just what I was looking for!
The cabin was in a beautiful area that I have visited before, but never stayed at. Quiet, hidden, no traffic, peaceful, wildlife passing through as if I wasn't even around. I was alone, so 2 bedrooms was a little more than I needed, but space was quite comfortable.
There is no air conditioning at this time and with the unusually hot weather this summer it would have been nice. That being said, I did ask the owner about this and he notified the property manager that I might be in need of additional fans. She contacted me after my arrival and brought over another fan right away.
I would recommend this cabin to anyone staying in the area.
Quiet WV retreat
Nice cabin in a quiet location. Property is well maintained and comfortable. Would recommend for a weekend close to the nature.
Great weekend stay
Had a great time with the family. Slept four people comfortably. The cabin was well appointed, clean, and comfortable. We enjoyed the patio (charcoal grill) and the fire pit outside. Much like the other reviews said, the cabin is deep in the woods - get there before dark!!! Plan on no cell reception though internet works fine. Nathan approved my dog for staying, which was wonderful. There were several dog friendly breweries and wineries along the way to make the drive back and forth fun as well.
