About the property

2 Bedroom, 3 Bathroom Log Home with Mountain Valley Views on 10 acres.

Base Camp provides a comfortable and stylish interior with wide open living spaces, high ceilings, and wrap around covered and screened porches. The cabin features a well appointed gourmet kitchen, gas fireplace, outdoor shower, commercial outdoor grill and an outdoor fire pit. Base Camp offers guests two beautifully appointed bedrooms, each with adjoining bathrooms. The master bedroom features a queen bed with a Tempur-Pedic mattress. The attached bathroom includes a walk in shower with a rainfall shower head and double sinks. The second bedroom features a queen bed, sitting area with a twin sleeper sofa and its own private attached bathroom. Both bedroom bathrooms were completely remodeled in 2016.

The Kitchen: I am here just shy of full time, therefore the kitchen is kept well-stocked with cookware, bakeware, and pantry items. Pantry items provided include coffee filters, general baking items like (sugar, flour, cornstarch, baking powder and soda), basic spices, and cooking spray. In addition to the basics, the kitchen is equipped with a Kitchen Aid stand mixer, professional waffle maker, and a Ninja blender.

Base Camp is the perfect retreat due to its views and location. It is secluded, but close to enough to the main road into Lost River, trails, and restaurants. The cabin is less than a mile from the Lost River Yoga Barn and LR General Store. Less than 5 minutes from the Lost River Grill, and Guesthouse Lost River, 15 minutes from the town of Wardensville with the Lost River Brewing Company, Lost River Trading Post and several other quaint shops. Explore the Lost River Farmer’s Market on weekends, at the big red building on SR 259, just 2 miles away. Hike nearby Lost River State Park Cranny Crow Trail or George Washington National Forest. Whatever your plans, allow Base Camp to be your Lost River home away from home.

Teets Cattle Company has now opened a Meat Market in the Lost River Barn! All Natural Farm Raised, Corn Fed Beef. Aged 21 Days and Federally Inspected and packaged. They are open Fridays and weekends till 6 pm. Check out Teets Cattle Company on Facebook.

About Jason

I call Lost River, WV home. I'm here just shy of full time. I work as a nurse at Medstar Georgetown University Hospital three days a week, the other four I try to spend in Lost River.

Jason purchased this cabin in 2015

Why Jason chose Lost River

Nearly every property in Lost River has a great view, but they are all different. When I was looking at properties, I kept coming back to this house. It sits at the base of large ridge (which in part is why I named the cabin Base Camp), while still having great views of the valley and surrounding mountains. I remember walking into the the house for the first time and thinking, "this is awesome." The main living area was completely open, had wide plank pine floors, and the kitchen had beautiful cherry craftsman cabinets.

This cabin is accessible in the winter. During my property search, I rented a couple different cabins on the weekends that I came out to look at houses and quickly discovered that during the winter months, some of the properties are difficult to access, even with four wheel drive vehicles.

Base Camp is the perfect retreat due to its views and location. It is secluded, but close to enough to the main road into Lost River, trails, and restaurants).

Stunning cabin getaway

  • 5 of 5

My husband and two of our friends recently stayed here for a short vacation, and it was wonderful. The cabin was pristine and has all modern amenities (gorgeous bathrooms, large bedrooms, gas fireplace, fully equipped, clean kitchen) that made it an extremely comfortable stay. The views from the cabin itself are beautiful, and there are several options for enjoying the outdoors (open-air deck areas with seating, large screened-in porch area with comfortable seating for many, an outdoor fire pit.) There is great walking/hiking nearby. Additionally, the Lost River area is perfect for a rustic getaway. We tried several local eateries and enjoyed the small downtown area including the brewery/restaurant. This is the perfect place for a relaxing vacation to enjoy the scenic views indoors and out.

Perfect Mountain Home

  • 5 of 5

This place is amazing and has everything you ever need and want to have a great vacation in the Lost River area. The host is more than accommodating and keeps the place in immaculate condition. There are great views of the mountains all around from every window and deck at the house. The outdoor fire pit is a nice touch and the kitchen is well appointed. It is a comfortable place to spend a long weekend and close to state parks for hiking.

We spent the Christmas holiday at the house and had a great time. The bedrooms and bathrooms are super nice, and the gas fire place is a nice added touch. We will most certainly go back to this little gem when our travels take us to the Lost River area.

Base Camp

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely adored our stay at Base Camp. The cabin was so welcoming, Jason knew it was for my moms birthday and they had a chalkboard and wrote "happy birthday" on it for when we arrived. Everything exceeding our expectations and Jason was always prompt with getting back with any questions. Also, everything that we would need for kitchen items were provided! The cabin had a wrap around porch that was just awesome for looking for wildlife! Definitely will want to return again!

Great Get-a-Way, Almost Heaven

  • 5 of 5

We recently spent the Thanksgiving weekend at the cabin. From the moment we pulled into the driveway and saw the cabin I knew it was exactly what we were looking for. Just lie most people we went thru the entire cabin to see if the place actually looked like the pictures, it did only better! The rooms were very well decorated but comfortable at the same time. The open concept living, dining, and kitchen area allowed us to all have some space bet yet still be altogether. The bedrooms were very comfortable with each having their own bathroom was really great.

On the outside the decks surrounding the entire cabin offered great views and their was seating on the entire deck. We enjoy the screened in deck. Even though it was late November the weather was mild enough for us to spend sometime on the porch enjoying some wine or coffee. We also enjoyed the large fire pit. We spent most evenings by it staying warm and looking up at the stars, no noise or light pollution at the cabin.

Finally, the kitchen is very, very well equipped. We were able to prepare an entire Thanksgiving dinner with all the trimmings and we never needed anything, the kitchen had it all!

Oever all we had a wonderful time and we would highly recommend that you consider the cabin for your next time away!

Spoiled in the Mountains

  • 5 of 5

Jason has done a wonderful job with this cabin. The location overlooks a valley that is incredible! It makes you want to wake up as early as you can just to hear everything wake up and see the sunrise. At night, clear skies reveal the galaxy and allows for marvelous stargazing. That's just the location. Jason has thought of everything and makes staying at this cabin as comfortable as possible. The open kitchen is a pleasure to cook in, Every utensil and appliance is within easy reach with plenty of counter space. The bedrooms were so comfortable, that you wanted to go to bed early after a long hike just to get that great night sleep. Whether your stay is a short or a long one, I'm sure you'll be pleasantly surprised.
