For those winter nights, treat yourself or your family to a full Raclette; perfect open deck for grilling, enjoying a bottle of wine (or two!).

Hiking, horseback riding, canoeing - pick your pleasure and enjoy the scenic mountains of West Virginia!
We bought Lost River Cabin a few years ago as an escape from the stresses of city living in Washington D.C. What we did not realize is how much at home we would feel in the gorgeous West Virginia mountains. Time spent hiking, cooking up a storm on a Saturday, long dinners that blend into star-gazing evenings on the deck - time seems to stand still up in the mountains and provided us with a better sense of place, relaxation and wonderful memories with friends and family.
My partner and I recently moved out West for work, and so have decided to open up our home to guests looking for the same escape! Whether you are in for an adventurous weekend filled with hikes, horseback riding and exploring the State parks, or in need of R&R with a good book, a cozy fire, and a lazy hammock afternoon, I hope you enjoy finding what you are looking for in Lost River, West Virginia. - Dave & David
Dave Schacht purchased this cabin in 2007
We bought this cabin in Lost River for a few reasons:
* proximity to Washington D.C. - an easy 2-2 1/2 hour drive; first half is an easy straight shot on 66W, then a gorgeous drive up into the mountains off 55W.
* proximity to and views of George Washington National Forest and Lost River State Forest - an incredible resource filled with hiking trails galore
* rural mountain settings - we specifically did not want to go to a highly-touristed area like Berkley Springs. There is nothing like the stars at night here with no "light pollution" and just the sound of nature.
The quiet and cozy Lost River Cabin was the perfect setting to rest, recuperate, and reconnect with my husband.
The cabin is outfitted with everything you could possibly need, and truly felt like a home away from home.
Fun adventures included hiking at Lost River State Park, a visit to Smokehole Taverns, and dinner at the Guest House where we were treated like a King and Queen.
We would recommend this cabin to anyone needing a break from it all. We can't wait to go back!
This was an amazing get away and the cabin couldn't have been any more perfect. I highly recommend this cabin if you are looking for a few days away from the hustle and bustle of day to day life. The owner was wonderful to communicate with and always quick to respond. Overall, the rental exceeded expectations and we look forward to going back again!
Perfect. Secluded, clean and filled with everything you need but forgot to bring. We loved it!
Our family enjoyed a much needed relaxing vacation this past week at the Lost River Cabin. The property is in excellent condition - fully stocked with any amenity you might possibly need. We witnessed all four seasons as it went from 75 degrees the day we arrived to snowing the following day. Nothing beats sitting out on the deck under a glowing starry sky. Thank you to the owners for sharing your little piece of heaven with us.
The views were amazing. Though it was cold out it was just still so nice. Felt very welcoming and relaxed. Though I won't be returning next year with my hubby. I hope to take my kids.
Our stay at the Lost River Cabin was exactly the snowy weekend getaway we were hoping for as a pre-Christmas vacation for two. The cabin is beautifully decorated and completely outfitted for comfort and convenience. While off the beaten path, the cabin was an ideal location for us to meet coming from Charlottesville, VA, and Germantown, MD.
Waking up in the loft to snow covering the valley was the perfect morning view. We made the most of the den with the wood fireplace and the outdoor charcoal grill and enjoyed taking a hike along the ridge in the snow.
Dave and David have created a lovely retreat in eastern West Virginia, and, in addition to sharing their cabin, they have taken extra care in providing good linens, a fully equipped kitchen, and recommendations for enjoying all the area has to offer. They even made sure plows kept the roads clear up on the ridge given the snowy weather!
The Lost River Cabin is a great way to enjoy natural views, cozy surroundings, and each other.
