New last season! Firepit and backyard area to increase the space that you can relax and enjoy the views. Enjoy dinner on the new patio and enjoy the sunset. Enjoy the natural boulder wall at the fire pit.
Leave the stress of city life behind and escape to a gorgeous mountaintop retreat in scenic WVA. Lost River Overlook, just two hours west from DC and northern VA, sits on a ridge overlooking the beautiful Appalachian mountains, a spectacular panorama no matter the season. It's a wonderful place to get away from it all, decompress, and relax.
Although we love the nature, we also love comfort. For that reason, our place is full of modern conveniences and contemporary design. Think: Rural WVA outside, boutique hotel inside.
We've newly renovated the kitchen. Along with a newer model stainless steel electric stove and a large refrigerator, we've added new granite counters, a sink, a dishwasher, a microwave, a toaster oven, and a garbage disposal. We have all the dishes, cookware, and kitchen implements you need to cook with ease.
The living room as a large flat screen high-def TV with cable and a DVD player. Also, we offer free wifi. Both cable and wifi operate through high-speed fiber optics—so yes, in rural WV, we have faster internet than in DC! Also, in the living room, we have a wood-burning fireplace for cozy fall and winter nights.
We have a bedroom and a spacious loft, both with new queen mattresses, linens, and decor. The loft also has a writing desk overlooking the mountains.
The bathroom has been beautifully updated within the past few years. The shower has a soothing rainfall shower, marble-topped vanity, and the fixtures by Kohler.
On the deck, there's plenty of space and outdoor furniture to lounge, as well as a gas grill for cookouts.
We take pride in the design and feel of the property. So we've personalized it with original artwork and design features. Almost all of the furniture is new—much of it from West Elm, Room and Board, Blue Dot, etc.
We have five beautiful acres to walk through, including a trail that wanders down the slope. The cabin is in an homeowners association, so the property and roads surrounding it are well maintained.
The mountains of WV offer many outdoor activities, including hiking, fishing, skiing, and rafting. Lost River, as well as other local communities, have shopping and dining. The Guest House Lost River, a resort just two miles away, has a delicious restaurant and fun and lively bar. Lost River Brewery, in Wardensville, as tasty food as well as wonderful local beer. Lost River Trading Post, also in Wardensville, has great coffee, baked goods, and great shopping—a new, modern twist on the general store. There's so much to do ... You can even get an in-house massage or visit the local Yoga studio!
We hope you'll stay at our place and love Lost River as much as we do!
