About Dave Schacht
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

Why Dave Schacht chose Lost River
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.
