We stayed here with 3 other couples from the DC/MD area for two nights. It was absolutely perfect for a relaxing weekend. The views are indeed beautiful, with the screened in porch our favorite place to gather in the morning and evenings. There's everything you could possibly want in the kitchen (including 2 dishwashers!) and three beautiful, very spacious floors. You can feel very comfortable with 8 people in the house, and it's easy to see how families with children would appreciate the space. Every guest remarked at how comfortable the beds were and how beautiful the inside and surroundings of the cabin were.
Nearby, Big Schloss is a great in and out hike to a craggy and breathtaking overlook, and there's fine dining at the Guest House and good sandwiches at the Lost River Inn. We definitely recommend a stop by the Lost River Trading Post, which is really a carefully curated antique and curious goods store owned by exurbanites from DC.
Lost River's a gem more and more people are going to hear about soon. Get here while it's still the quiet retreat we love--and do yourself a favor by renting this cabin!
