The Cabin at Lost River is surrounded by nature and has a quaint 1960's hand-hewn log cabin charm. The cabin is nestled in the George Washington National Forest about 2 hours from the Washington DC Metro Area.
The Cabin is ideal for small families, couples, solo adventurers, business travelers, and furry friends (case by case) unfortunatel no cats.
Step off the grid and enjoy some rest and relaxation at The Cabin at Lost River. No worries...there is a land line available for emergencies.

The space
Due to the Coronavirus Pandemic we are taking extra precautions to ensure the safety of our customers.
As always ... between guests , we are using Lysol spray to spray the entire facility. Between guests, we are using Clorox and other cleansers on all surfaces, Tables, chairs, bar top etc.....
Our customers are like family and we appreciate your continued patronage!

THANK YOU FOR YOUR FEEDBACK AND SUGGESTIONS... WE LISTEN TO YOU.....
As of 2019, we’ve installed a liner into the chimney.. making your fires start much easier. Last yr we had a Lennox AC/Heating system installed .....ALSO a new state of the art “tankless” water heater, so you can enjoy endless hot water!
Per your request we’ve added an electronic coffee grinder so u can enjoy your favorite coffee!
Inside this charming 1960's hand hewn log structure you will find an eclectic mix, from the furnishings to the art, not to mention all the comforts of home.
Queen size bed in the bedroom, with a comfortable single size day bed in the main area.
Full kitchen and bath. A truly unique one of a kind getaway. Great as a writers retreat , a spiritual escape, couples getaway or family trip. Nature sounds in silence.
You may lose cell service 10 miles out from the cabin. We do not have internet at our cabin, BUT if you need to connect to the internet, it is a short ride into town where service is available...Off the grid has its benefits. There is air-conditiong & heat & a great stone fireplace! GPS has a tendency to take you one house further then the cabin...please look for the sign next to the road that says "Welcome to the Cabin at Lost River."
NEW.. there is a kayak with paddles and life vest for our guest to enjoy.
Please follow safety instructions and common sense.

Lost City, West Virginia, United States

This 1960's vintage hand-hewn log cabin sits on 2.66 wooded acres in the George Washington National Forest. Minutes from Trout Pond Recreation area, West Virginia's only natural pond. DUE TO COVID...VEHICAL ACCESS IS LIMITED TO THE TOP ENTRANCE...A NICE, FAIRLY SHORT HIKE TO THE BEACH IS REQUIRED.
The recreational area is great for boating, fishing, hiking, swimming and more.
Hiking trails through the GW Forest are abundant.
A quick 8-mile drive into Wardensville, you will find Kerr's Grocery store, wonderful restaurants, a farmers market, Lost River Trading Post, art galleries and other happenings. We also try to have current events listed for you when you arrive in case you want to venture out.
Larger hiking trails and other sites are listed in the Cabin journal which you will see when you arrive. Above all the rest, "The Cabin at Lost River" gives you the quite setting that provides the rest and relaxation you deserve after long days of stress in the hectic world you might sometimes find yourself in. Morning & evening walks around the property are a great way to start the day or wind down from the day out.

I am a native of Washington DC, (not many of us left.) and My husband is a Marylander. Both of us have been coming out to the mountains of WV for many years. My family fist started coming out to the Shenandoah Valley in the 70's, I'm sure that's why I have an affinity for the mountains. My husband, before he became my husband, was also venturing out, purchasing a log cabin not far from this one. After we got married it seemed the natural course to pick up and get out of the city. Now living in a log home just outside of Winchester, VA. ( I think we like log houses). We are Parents to two boys (grown young men now), 2 donkeys, a bird and a pound puppy Hamlet. I am a designer locally and an artist, as is my husband. He is a jeweler in Bethesda, MD and a successful musician keeping him busy doing what he loves. We are grateful that we can share what we think is truly special with our guests. A place of peace & rejuvenation of spirit. Any chance to connect with self and each other is fine by us.
