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).

Perfect Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

Base Camp was a great place to stay..Jason really does make sure you are taken care of and he has also made sure that you have everything you need (even an electric wine opener) to make your stay fun and relaxing. Remote yet well appointed. I would absolutely recommend this to friends and family.

Great place

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at the cabin. The kitchen is very well stocked. We also really loved the outdoor spaces. Jason, the owner, was easily accessible for questions during our stay. It was a great location for a long weekend away from DC.

Clean, quiet, and peaceful

  • 5 of 5

Our family spent five days at Jason's place in Lost River and we were sad to leave. His home is exactly as advertised _ it has a rustic feel but is very clean and modern. If you're looking for peace and quiet, this is where you want to go. All the living space in Jason's home is upstairs and the bedrooms are downstairs, which means people can be talking/watching TV on one level without bothering those who may be sleeping in the other. Really great to have three full baths. The kitchen is spacious and has everything you need. We really enjoyed the wrap-around decks on both levels of the house. One end is screened in to keep the bugs out at night. We spent a lot of time out there. We can't wait to go back.

Beautiful Mountain Home

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely stunning home in the West Va mountains. Decor and furnishings are first rate. A beautiful deck surrounds both levels on the home and provides great views of the surroundings. Very modern appointments and upscale touches throughout the home make it comfortable and extremely livable. Close to great hiking and outdoor activities.

Getting lost n lost city :)

  • 5 of 5

I consider myself as cabin savvy, I love exploring different cabins and we take these getaway weekends quite often. That's why I thought this cabin will not surprise me, they are all great aren't they? well, I was pleasantly surprised, and here are the reasons why:

1. The cabin has something for everyone, the living room is spacious, the kitchen is great (will get a whole new section later), there are two open decks and one deck with screens (perfect for a bug hater like me), it has tons of sitting areas, the rooms are big with bathroom & shower and another full bathroom on the top floor (the main floor).

2. The kitchen - I've never seen such a stocked kitchen in a cabin! the cabinets are full of every piece of equipment you can think of and then some. grill equipment, Tupperware to keep your food, spices, all the electric sidekicks you can think of (from waffle maker to kitchen aid) - perfecto!

3. The vibe - it feels like someone went through every wish you can have during a weekend getaway, and made it happen, so you will feel right at home. from the guitar on the wall, to the books and magazines, and even remotes tom light up the outdoors candles. The patio furniture is perfect for relaxing with the gorgeous view, and the deck is just the right spot for your morning yoga.

4. The showers - so clean, with the small essentials that make you feel at home like qtips and body lotion, every shower had a full stock of shampoo & conditioner and they were all spotless. They even places bran new candles for the romantic folks.

5. The owner - super nice and easy to communicate with, the house instructions are simple and you do not need to bring anything with you (like linen/towels at other cabins). We asked to leave late on the Sunday and immediately received an answer saying stay as long as you need!

6. The nearby town and different attractions are great and you have a sweet coffee shop just down the road, the Guest house is also great for a fancy dinner, and just 15 min. walk from the cabin.

I can go on, but I will let you find out for yourselves.

We will definitely be back!

Thank you Jason for this fabulous weekend!
