About the property

2400 SF - 3 Bedrooms with En Suite Baths and Great Mountain Views

This peaceful Lost River vacation home is a mountain visitor's dream, offering an easy drive from many nearby cities (2 hours from DC, 2.5 hours from Baltimore, 3.5 hours from Pittsburgh and 4 hours from Philadelphia).

Cedar House is just minutes from everything Lost River has to offer. Set in a quiet neighborhood surrounded by a forest of trees, guests will experience seclusion and tranquility within the 6+ acres while having access to a view of the Lost River Valley and mountains.

Cedar house is a luxury cabin equipped with all of the comforts you would expect in a vacation retreat. Central air and heat, washer and dryer, three spacious bedrooms with en suite bathrooms and a gourmet kitchen with everything you'll need to prepare your favorite meal. This multilevel home thoughtfully separates the living/common space from the sleeping quarters to keep everyone on their own personal schedule. There are two large screened in decks. One off of the main common space with a dining and lounge area. The other off of the master bedroom great for outdoor yoga in the warmer months or relaxing in the hammock. There are also open air decks on each level with great views of the Lost River valley and mountains. A fire pit patio is located next to the cabin with ample seating to gather and roast marshmallows and Smores.

Feel the luxury with our Turkish cotton towels and crisp clean linens. Each en suite bathroom is equipped with hand soap, lotion, mouthwash, hair dryer, tissues and luxury shower gel and shampoo/conditioner by PAYA.

There's nothing like a wood-burning fireplace to set the tone for your mountain getaway. With WiFi, Roku and a stash of games, the living area is great for nights of entertainment or lounging by the fire contemplating a simpler life. Take the fun outside to the screened in deck on warmer days or even those cool Fall evenings with an outdoor heater provided for your comfort.

The stage is set in the gourmet kitchen for your cooking performance with a gas range and only steps away from the outdoor BBQ. You are guaranteed to amaze while friends and family cheer you on sitting at the large island. Enjoy your edible creations at the large table for 8 while you take in the mountain breeze and views of the Lost River valley.

This three-bedroom, three and a half-bath cabin can sleep six guests very comfortably, 8 with a sleeper sofa in the media room on the lower level. No one shares a bathroom at Cedar House. Each bedroom has a fully equipped en suite bathroom with large shower stalls and double sinks in two of the three bathrooms.

We have worked hard to provide most of the essentials for your stay at Cedar House. We do provide some necessary staples such as, spices, oil, flour sugar and coffee. Cedar House is about 20-30 minutes away from the local grocery stores in Moorefield and Wardensville.

We look forward to having you out to the cabin.

About Damian

I live in Washington, DC and own a landscape architecture firm that focuses on penthouse terraces and urban residential spaces. After visiting Lost River for the first time a few years ago, I knew instantly that this is where I wanted to spend my time away from the city. I look forward to sharing this beautiful home with you and hope you and your friends enjoy the comforts of Lost River as I do.

Damian purchased this cabin in 2015

Why Damian chose Lost River

I want to provide guests with a space that is inviting and comfortable in many ways. The cabin is fairly large at 2400 SF but feels very cozy. With its cedar facade, interior trim, and stone fireplace, the cabin truly reminds you that you are in the mountains. At the same time, you are experiencing the quiet, tranquil lifestyle of the country without giving up most of the creature comforts that you may be used to.

What makes this cabin unique

Cedar House is located in a very clean and quiet neighborhood called The Summit. It is filled with wonderful people who are equally in love with Lost River. Most are from the city and come out to unwind and some have made this wonderful area their full-time home.

Hot Fun in the Valley

Five stars across the board. Damian, the Owner, was prompt and gracious. The house felt warm and welcoming with plenty of privacy and great views. Cedar House and the Lost River Valley are not to be missed.

Another fantastic New Year's at Cedar House!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time at Cedar House to spend New Year's with family and friends, and we again enjoyed a fantastic vacation. Damian was helpful and responsive both prior to and during our stay, and we found the house in excellent condition. Damian was kind even kind enough to provide welcoming cookies and Prosecco! Everything in the house is as described, and Cedar House proved again to be an accommodating and luxurious getaway. We hope to be able to return again before long.

Fantastic Valentines Day & 40th Birthday Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We booked the cabin in Lost River to ski and celebrate my husband's 40th birthday. The entire experience was first class and we had a great time. The cabin was cozy, spacious, and very clean. The view from the deck was amazing. We had two adults and three kids and had plenty of room. The owners provided a personal touch by adding a welcome message to the blackboard, valentine's day candy, and individual heart shaped cakes to help us celebrate. Definitely recommend this cabin to won't be disappointed.

A wonderful Thanksgiving

  • 5 of 5

The Cedar House was a wonderful place for our family to meet for Thanksgiving. The kitchen was well equipped to handle a Thanksgiving feast and the beautiful dining room with its wonderful view was the perfect setting. Damian was the perfect host. He stayed in constant communication and even had a nice welcome sign for us. There was plenty of firewood available with fire sticks to help get them started. The house was very clean. Telephone reception was not really available, but between the house phone and using Wi-Fi for the phone, we didn't have any problems. It is a beautiful home and a great place to get together.

An absolutely wonderful get-away

  • 5 of 5

The pictures don't portray the beauty of the home enough. The house was impeccably clean and afforded all the amenities you could ever want. I will look into going back to this property, especially for such a low price.

My trip was a weekend get-away with 5 other friends and our dogs. The owners were gracious enough to allow us to bring three of our small dogs. They also offered bowls for the dogs.

The home has three separate porches, two of which had a screened in porch. The top floor porch was used quiet frequently due to the amazing view is offered, the easy to use space heater and all of the couches/seating.

They had more than plenty pots, pans, and other kitchenware to use for whatever meal you can think of. The owners really did think of everything.

We hiked up the hill behind the home which had a wonderful view at the top. Also drove about 40mins to a trail that ended up being a great experience.

All in all I would highly recommend this place to anyone that is interested in a nice secluded (but not too secluded) weekend get-away.
