Overview

About the property

Spectacular Mountain Top Retreat, 2 Bedrooms, Sleeps 4

NEW this Summer 2016! 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!

About John and Jeff

John is an English Teacher and Department Chair at a private school in Northern Virginia, and he’s also a fiction writer. Jeff is an artist, specializing in ceramic sculpture. We love to read, watch film, and wander art museums and galleries.

John and Jeff purchased this cabin in 2015

Why John and Jeff chose Lost River

We first came to Lost River Cabin (this property) in early November 2012 during a very hectic fall in the city. I remember the night because, as we stepped out of the car, I looked up and the sky was so clear we could see the Milky Way. Immediately our stress evaporated. I knew this place was special, and we needed more of it in our lives. So we kept coming back. It was what made us want our own place. As fate would have it, we were lucky enough to purchase this house in May 2015. We immediately set about to make it ours and satisfy the “what if this were our place” game we played when we were renting it … and we’ve had so much fun doing it!

If this is your first time to Lost River Overlook (what we have decided to call it), or if you’re a returning visitor, we hope you love the changes we made and, of course, love what has always been so wonderful about the place. We’ll continue to make improvements in the future, so please come back!

What makes this cabin unique

We really believe that design and beautiful art help enhance that rental experience, so Lost River Overlook has elements of both, which make it stand out, we think.

Beautiful house in a beautiful place

  • 5 of 5

Outdoor space was fantastic, and our dog loved the fenced yard. The indoor area was beautifully done and the kitchen was well-stocked with all the tools we needed. We had a great weekend!

Another great visit to Lost River

  • 5 of 5

This was our third time visiting the cabin, and we continue to love the place. Every time we come, there are new improvements made to the house. This visit, I particularly enjoyed watching the hummingbirds on the patio. Many thanks for a great place to get away for the weekend!

Beautiful and relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

We only stayed for 2 days, but we will definitely be back! The house was beautiful and had everything we could need to have a comfortable stay. The view was gorgeous and it was definitely a quiet, peaceful trip. Even with rainy weather we had a great time. We can't wait to come back and explore more soon.

Beautiful views, amazingly decorated and great area!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our 4 night stay at Lost River Overlook. The house itself is beautiful and so unique. So many comfy places to sit and relax but also all the creature comforts you could want (cable, wifi, a/c). There are great places to eat nearby - including the Guesthouse which is right down the hill. We got amazing fresh produce at the Lost River Farmer's Market and local meat from the Lost River Barn. Also swam at the nice pool at Lost River State Park. The back yard is fully fenced which was perfect for our dog. The walks up and down Toms Knob were nice too. Absolutely cant wait to go back. Everything was perfect!

Relaxing and overall amazing property!

  • 5 of 5

Jeff and John provided us with an excellent home to vacation at for our birthday getaway! It was beyond perfect, they have thought of everything you could possibly need to enjoy your stay at their cabin. The star gazing is absolutely breath taking. I highly recommend hiking the white oak trail at lost river state park, the view from the top is incredible!
