Amazing home in Lost River

  • 5 of 5

We booked Jennifer and Bill's beautiful, stunning Lost River home for my husband's 50th birthday weekend plus a group bike ride event. The house was beyond expectations, great kitchen and open spaces, full wrap around decks on both floors with incredible views, hot tub bonus, spacious well appointed bedrooms and bathrooms. The only regret was not using the fire pit outside only because we ran out of time. We had small children in our group and it was really perfect for kids too (as long as you bring a baby gate for the top of the stairs). Jennifer was gracious, welcoming and accommodating, quick to respond to any and all questions via email.

We will be back and recommend this property highly. It truly was amazing, thank you Jennifer and Bill!

LOVE this property

  • 5 of 5

This is our second stay at this beautiful home, and we cannot recommend it more highly. Our first stay was with family for Thanksgiving, this stay was simply two couples enjoying a weekend away. Jennifer and her husband do everything they can to make you feel welcome in their home. The home is very clean, well stocked with all of the pots, pans and appliances you would need and the top floor provides a homey, open place to gather and share time with those you love as you make new memories. And the views!!! The views are spectacular!!! Sunrise, sunset and every moment in between can be gazed upon from the beautiful decks. Nature was meant to be admired and enjoyed from this property. We used the hot tub both visits, and have enjoyed the fire pit, the wood burning fireplace, the porch swing, the grill. This property has it all. Do not hesitate to book this home for whatever getaway you are hoping to enjoy. We hope to return again and again to this home and the surrounding WV community and all it has to offer!!!

WOW! Not enough words..

  • 5 of 5

My husband and our two teen girls stayed for some family time away from it all. We were all so excited the moment we walked in. The home is gorgeous, the views are stunning. I can't say enough about being here. We played board games, hiked, sat in hot tub a few, watched movies and just sat on the deck enjoying the views. Jennifer was very responsive in our emails and was really nice. We normally don't go back to the same place twice but we will be back!!! Highly recommend!

Tranquil Cabin with Amazing Views

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed at this cabin for our honeymoon. It was everything we dreamed of and more! The cabin was very clean, and the kitchen was stocked with everything we needed (I was especially thrilled to see a french press!). We loved the outdoor space including the wrap around porches!

We would love to return for a future stay.

Owner's Response: It was our pleasure having you. So glad it was memorable! Glad you found the French Press. We will soon be getting our own specially packaged coffee - to leave for our guests. Once we get it in, I'll send you some! Jennifer

The amazing photos are no exaggeration

  • 5 of 5

Sometimes the pictures rental properties post seem too good to be true. But this place is indeed amazing! We were a group of seven ladies looking for a relaxing getaway and we received one. The home is beautiful, clean, secluded and quiet, and the wrap-around porches are perfect for lounging. The open floor plan on the second level was great for our bigger group, but also the home is big enough and has enough comfortable spaces for people to have privacy. The kitchen was stocked (although we couldn't find a tea kettle or oil for cooking, so come prepared), and even in May we were able to make good use of the fireplace. The water balance in the hot tub was off and we ended up not using it (there are instructions on how to test the water and adjust it to proper levels, but we couldn't get it right so we gave up). If the hot tub is a big selling point, I'd say be open to pay the fee for the property manager to handle it. The owner is also very responsive to email and accommodated our last-minute change in group number.

Within an hour of arriving, one person in our group said "we should come here every year." I hesitate to leave such a glowing review in fear that this home will only get more booked up!

Owner's Response: Thanks so much Elahe! We have now hired Ellen to also oversee the hot tub to ensure it stays in the right balance and there are new, simple instructions for guests on how to maintain it during their stay. Look forward to seeing you there again. Jennifer
