Constructed in 2008 and designed by famed Katrina Cottage architect Marianne Cusato, this classic, West Virginia cottage is located in Lost City/Lost River is sure to warm your heart. Brazilian cherry hardwood floors, marble and glass tile baths, 9 foot ceilings and comfortable furniture provide a casual, country/lodge atmosphere. The location provides breathtaking vistas of the mountains from every window, the 8 foot deep front porch which extends the entire house as well and a small covered back porch with even more great views. This vacation home sits down a small driveway from a paved road and is surrounded by thirteen acres and has eight resident goats. The thirteen acres abuts the large pasture for the main rental farmhouse which is a good distance away so you still have your privacy but within walking distance if you choose to rent both. Beyond that and within walking distance are the rest of the thousands of acres that make up the George Washington National Forest.
From Washingtonian Magazine - : '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.'
NOTE - This house is next to my other rental and both properties can be rented together - perfect for family reunions or two families traveling together!
Further house information: Three great bedrooms make the home perfect for families or couples - two rooms each with a queen bed and a third room with two twin beds. One queen bedroom is downstairs with its own bath and canopy bed (master suite). All bed linens and towels are provided. There are two full baths, one upstairs and one down. The baths have heated marble floors, glass tile walls and high-end fixtures. Soak in the upstairs bath's jetted tub with a window that overlooks the mountains and catch a glimpse of the deer and wild turkeys. Farmhouse has both central air and heat which is dual zone for those who like to sleep with it cool but wake up to a warm downstairs.
There is a fully-equipped kitchen with microwave, dishwasher, toaster, coffeemaker, etc.. There is a washer and dryer combo upstairs if you need it.
We Love Pets!!: Well-mannered pets permitted for an additional rent. Backyard is completely fenced so you don't have to worry about your dog running off into the forest (no goats in the dog area).
We stayed in the cottage and couldn't have been more pleased with the accommodations. Since our visit occurred during the off season, the weather was not conducive to much outdoor activity. But the cottage was so well appointed we felt right at home. Mark and Phil were terrific hosts. The muffins were delicious and we really enjoyed the chickens and goats. It was so nice to visit a place where feeding the animals is encouraged. :) This was a relaxing weekend getaway. We highly recommend!
