Overview

Photos and Description of this Lost River holiday cabin

Luxury cabin for couples & small groups w/ hot tub, fire pit, breathtaking views

Come relax, unwind or explore the Potomac Highlands from our luxury escape filled with amenities and surrounded by panoramic views of the Appalachian Mountains and the Lost River Valley. We have the best views of the Valley! Whether you are looking for a romantic getaway (rates begin at $200/night for 4) or a place to spend time with a small group of friends or family, the "Lodge" at Lost River will provide the perfect backdrop for your West Virginia escape. Each bedroom has its own character with en suite full baths and sliding glass doors to outside decks that overlook stunning vistas and wildlife. Wooden decks wrap around the upper and lower floors, with an enclosed screened-in porch on each level. Adirondack, lounge and rocking chairs surround the house - providing ample room to read, birdwatch or relax. While the house is spacious, the upstairs is cozy and perfect for couples looking for a mountain getaway. A modern, fully-equipped, luxury kitchen and gas grill provide the tools for wonderful meals. And there is plenty of fresh oregano, sage, rosemary and thyme in the herb garden for your culinary creations!) There is a brand new, wood burning fireplace in the great room and a gas fireplace in the upstairs master bedroom. In cooler months enjoy the hot tub on the lower, enclosed deck. A firepit/deck in back of property can be enjoyed year round and is a great way to take in the extraordinary stars and invigorating mountain air. We have high speed internet and wi-fi enabled television for your streaming accounts. A music player for CDs and iPods. The house is near some great hikes in the George Washington National Forest and Lost River State Park, and can serve as a hub for either exploring wild and wonderful West Virginia or serving as a retreat for relaxing, meditation and taking in the Lost River Valley's natural beauty.

Beautiful views, excellent interior with warm inviting furnishings and everything we could want!

  • 5 of 5

We had the cabin for a reunion of college girlfriends. It was every thing we wanted. Great views, hot tub, wood burning fireplace, the site manager was helpful when we had an issue that need to be addressed immediately, and it really was a great place to spend a long weekend. We plan on returning again next year at the same time!

Glorious Gaming Retreat

  • 5 of 5

As others have mentioned, the views are simply stunning, and I could not stop taking pics of the mountains. The large open common area was perfect for our group with the large table to accommodate our board games, the sitting area to converse and lounge, and the gorgeous kitchen allowing us to socialize and never feel cut off. We had the misfortune of being pummeled with extremely heavy winds during one of our days, which made the hot tub hard to bear, but otherwise we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and look forward to doing it again! Jennifer was an excellent host, and very quick to respond to any questions we had!

Fair warning: the drive up/down is pretty rough, moderately steep, and narrow, with a few sharp turns. Not something you may want to do in the dark, or do a lot of traversing (unless you have a Jeep), but the place is definitely worth it!

Stunning and modern "beach house" in the mountains

  • 4 of 5

As we are getting older and used to more comfort in our getaway weekends these days, my friends and I decided to rent a cabin for the weekend. The owners were very welcoming and after a quick and easy rental process, we were scheduled.

Little could I have imagined just how wonderful this place was! My first impression was that this was an Outer Banks-level beach house nestled on the side of a high ridge. The house itself is very modern and spacious, with all of the amenities you could need for a retreat from the city (or the country, for that matter). From the hot tub to the hammock to the fireplaces to the OUTSTANDING free-standing fire pit to the wrap-around decks, this is a fantastic place to take a few close friends or family to spend a weekend gazing at the spectacular scenery, lounging in the house, or exploring the local parks and rec spots.

Only issue we had was getting one of our cars up the sometimes steep and rocky road leading up to the place, but in the end it was no trouble and well worth the time and money spent. I would highly recommend renting this place if you get the chance. I know we will be returning.

FANTASTIC

  • 5 of 5

This property exceeds all expectations. The pictures, while good, do not even begin to capture just how lovely and comfortable the home is. The furniture is top of the line and it is a home that was built with entertaining and relaxing in mind. It's equipped with everything you could need in the kitchen. The location is amazing and the views are breathtaking - you really feel like you are in the clouds. We spent a long weekend there wih 4 couples and could not have been more pleased. We'll definitely be back!

Wonderful weekend getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Our group had a really great time at Jennifer's home! Beautiful views, incredible kitchen, and overall a lovely home. You occasionally get rentals where they've done the bare minimum, but we wanted for nothing while we were there. The place was well thought out, well maintained, and well furnished.

One word of advice: make sure you have a car you feel comfortable taking uphill on gravel roads.
