MOUNTAIN RETREAT IN CHARMING FOREST CABIN

Lost River Cabin Rental Photos and Description

2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, sleeps 5 with sofa bed

The Wild and Wonderful mountains of West Virginia are the perfect vacation getaway for this property. Only two hours drive from Washington D.C., (3 hours Baltimore, 3 1/2 hours Richmond, 5 hours Philadelphia) this private cabin is secluded in the woods and offers you the pristine beauty of the Shenandoah Mountains. Near the George Washington National Forest and Lost River State Park, there are a wide range of recreational activities: swimming, horseback riding, hiking, antiquing, fishing, canoeing, archery, as well as fine dining or simple, country eating. During the winter months, skiing is convenient. Lots to choose from or just relax and enjoy a sweet cabin in the woods.

Adventures Abound: From Washingtonian Magazine May 2006 - : 'The Lost River Valley of West Virginia has been found.' 'Tucked between two mountain ridges, the valley, a couple of hours from Washington, is drawing more weekenders. The lure is rugged woodland scenery, tumbling mountain streams, and outdoor fun - hiking, fishing, biking, canoeing, swimming, rafting, climbing, horseback riding.' You'll have your choice of the Lost River State Park, where the Hidden Trails Stables is located for horseback riding, archery, outdoor pool, tennis and a restaurant. Also nearby is the Trout Pond Recreation Area at the George Washington National Forest, with fishing, a gentle lake with a beach for swimming, lovely light walking or more serious hiking.

Serenity: The moment you enter our cabin retreat, you'll be struck by the scent of fresh pine. The cabin is inlaid from floor to ceiling with fresh pine wood and the sweet, woodsy, smell will be with you throughout your stay. It is an authentic country cabin which has been modernized, by bumping out a bay window and building a sun room, so there's lots of light to be had and includes all of the modern amenities, with A/C. You'll have both the rural mountain feel and all of the conveniences from home. Perfect for a romantic getaway or kids will love our back yard where they can knock around a soccer ball. This is a back to nature locale for a couple or a family with children.

Local Restaurants and Shops: While we are a getaway, there are still local businesses to visit during your time in Lost River. The Guest House at Lost River has fine dining with a 40 seat restaurant and bar operating on weekends throughout the year. Lost River General Store offers crafts, lunch and ice cream for tourists on the shopping prowl. Lost River Grill serves breakfast, lunch and dinner throughout the year, as well as an evening bar with Karaoke on weekends. South End Grocery will offer any of your other household needs.

The Perfect Mountain Cabin Escape!

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Apr 1, 2014
  • Stayed: Jan 2014
My husband and I rented this cabin in January for a post-holiday retreat. The cabin was *just* what we were looking for. It's hard to find a simple cabin that is clean and comfortable, with a fire place, real wood paneling, and with some land around it so you feel like you've really gotten away. It was easily one of the best cabins we’ve ever rented. The sun room looked out over the yard and wooded valley, so that you felt like you were up in the trees when you were sitting out there. We enjoyed hiking in Lost River State Park as well as walking our dog on the country roads.

The owner is super nice and easy to communicate with as well. I'm looking forward to returning in the spring, summer, and fall!
Owner's Response: Thanks so much for a great review. I really appreciate your feedback and such nice complements. You're welcome to come back any time of the year.

Great Cabin!

My boyfriend and I rented this cabin with another couple in mid February and had a great time. The cabin is beautiful inside and comfortably decorated. The kitchen is fully equip with almost any appliance you need to whip up a meal, the living room is inviting with great couches, a fire place and plenty of wood, and the sunroom is a great place to relax over morning coffee. There are 2 large decks and a nice view of the surrounding mountains. There is plenty of hiking nearby - we did a couple of trails in George Washington National Forest and Lost River State Park. Additionally, the owner is friendly and responsive to inquiries, making the reservation process very quick and easy. This was a great cabin to spend a relaxing vacation!
Owner's Response: Rachael,

You are very kind. I'm so pleased that you enjoyed my cabin and I hope to see you again soon.

Best Regards,

A holiday weekend escape.

If you are looking for a place for relaxation, look no further! The cabin sits in a very quiet area, and the sunroom offers great views of the sun setting behind the mountain. The cabin is very clean and the owner furnished it with furnishings that make you just want to "set a spell"! We had intended to explore the area but, except for a couple walks with amazing views of the valley below,, spent most of our time there, enjoying this cozy getaway. Gordon was very accommodating during the reservation process and quickly answered all questions. It is definitely a place that we'd consider again and also recommend for those looking for some peace and quiet.
Owner's Response: Thank you so much. I love reading your feedback and you're always welcome back.

This cabin is a gem

We arrived on a dark and stormy Friday evening to a attractive, clean, and dry cabin. All was as advertised. It rained much of the day Saturday, but we enjoyed a lazy morning in the very comfortable "sun room" before exploring the area. We went to the nearby Artisans Co-op (some great crafts and don't miss the funky museum downstairs) and to drinks and a delicious dinner at the very nearby Guest House. We met the Guest House masseuse at the bar there and we returned Sunday morning after checking out of the cabin for my wife to get a massage. Then a nice hike in Lost River State Park. We recommend "Cabin Sweet Cabin" and hope to return on a sunny weekend.
Owner's Response: Larry,

I'm delighted to hear that you had such a lovely weekend. Rainy days are meant for luxuriating in a sweet cabin. I'm so glad that you came to my home and I will welcome you back sun or clouds.

Thanks for your feedback,
Sincerely,
Gordon

Thanksgiving Getaway

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Dec 2, 2012
  • Stayed: Nov 2012
After a rather busy and stressful fall semester of working and teaching, my wife, son and I decided that we would escape for Thanksgiving. Gordon's cabin provided the perfect setting for our family escape. The cabin is warm and cozy. The setting is wonderfully peaceful and quiet. We enjoyed cooking country breakfasts, hiking is nearby George Washington National Forrest and making s'mores by the fireplace. The surrounding area is a great mix of backwoods solitude and Southern hospitality. I would recommend this cabin to anyone in need of a quiet retreat, or wants to do some serious hiking.
Owner's Response: Dear Leo,

I am delighted that you and your family had such a terrific holiday at my cabin. I thank you indeed for the feedback and it feels so good to me knowing that you had such a great time. Y'all are welcome back any time.

Thanks again,
Gordon
