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.

AWESOME CABIN!!! YOU WILL NOT REGRET RENTING IT!!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I chose this cabin for last minute getaway! Making the reservation was easy as pie and Gordon, the owner, is very kind and responsive. The cabin itself is extremely cute – it looks much better in person than the pictures suggest!! We loved the cabin so much we barely left!! The couch is extremely comfortable and once you sit on it, you don’t want to get up! There is a fireplace in the den which when lit just added to the cabin feel! I appreciated the attention to detail in regards to the cabin’s decorations!! There are board games, puzzles and lots of DVD’s! The cabin has internet and we brought our laptop which we connected to the TV and we were able to stream Netflix with no problem! I was also very happy that there was a charcoal grill on site! We spent a lot of time outside enjoying the fresh air and grilling! My dogs enjoyed exploring the land around the cabin as well! I would without a doubt recommend this cabin to anyone and everyone, and in fact I have already recommended it to friends and co-workers!

GREAT GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5
We think this place is simply fantastic. From the moment we arrived, you can smell the fresh pine from the wood paneling which lines the entire cabin. It's a cozy and enticing place with a great view of the mountains. This trip was a simple ride from DC and Lost River is a rural wonderland. What a great time we had at your cagbn. Thanks for your hospitality. Daniel

SO DISAPPOINTED IN THIS RENTAL!!!!!

  • 2 of 5
The cabin was overwhelmingly musty smelling. On our first trip to the grocery, we had to buy scented candles to burn while we were in the cabin. There was pet hair on the furniture, cobwebs in the corners, and clumps of dust and hair under the furniture. We felt as if we had to clean before we could relax. There were holes in the couch cushions and a big stain on the chair in the living room. Yuck! 5 light bulbs were burned out, leaving the living room area very dark. The cabin has window air condition units in bedrooms only. If it weren't for the sun room, I would have to rate it 1 star. We spent most of our time in that area enjoying the beautiful view. Sadly disappointed in the cabin!!!!

Owner's Response: Unfortunately, I believe that this posting does not represent accurately a truthful reflection of my cabin. There are 14 other reviews which are all 5 Stars and then this awful review.
I have included this note from my cleaning woman who was personally offended after reading this review:
"I am so upset about this review, I have been getting notes from other guests on how they have enjoyed their stay and how clean the cabin was....I get so excited when I get a tip and a note that they love the place.
This is a refection on me....and I don't like it at all. I put candles in the cabin for the guest for them to have a romantic time. I don't keep them there to cover up smells. You have been to the cabin enough to know that I clean it well. I call all of the guest and check on them...they never complain. When we went in the only light bulb that was burnt out was the lamp on the microwave and we put the bulb in before we left. I always turn the lights on when I clean to make sure I don't miss anything. I know there was nothing missed the day these guests arrived.
I am sorry you have to deal with this" Angela
We will be ordering new living room furniture at the end of July , which should be in place by Labor Day Weekend. Sorry for this poor review. Gordon

THE PERFECT MOUNTAIN CABIN ESCAPE!

  • 5 of 5
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!

GREAT CABIN!

  • 5 of 5
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!

A HOLIDAY WEEKEND ESCAPE.

  • 5 of 5
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.
