About the property

2400 SF - 3 Bedrooms with En Suite Baths and Great Mountain Views

This peaceful Lost River vacation home is a mountain visitor's dream, offering an easy drive from many nearby cities (2 hours from DC, 2.5 hours from Baltimore, 3.5 hours from Pittsburgh and 4 hours from Philadelphia).

Cedar House is just minutes from everything Lost River has to offer. Set in a quiet neighborhood surrounded by a forest of trees, guests will experience seclusion and tranquility within the 6+ acres while having access to a view of the Lost River Valley and mountains.

Cedar house is a luxury cabin equipped with all of the comforts you would expect in a vacation retreat. Central air and heat, washer and dryer, three spacious bedrooms with en suite bathrooms and a gourmet kitchen with everything you'll need to prepare your favorite meal. This multilevel home thoughtfully separates the living/common space from the sleeping quarters to keep everyone on their own personal schedule. There are two large screened in decks. One off of the main common space with a dining and lounge area. The other off of the master bedroom great for outdoor yoga in the warmer months or relaxing in the hammock. There are also open air decks on each level with access from every room in the house. A fire pit patio is located next to the cabin with ample seating to gather and roast marshmallows and tell scary stories.

Feel the luxury with our Turkish cotton towels and crisp clean linens. Each en suite bathroom is equipped with hand soap, lotion, mouthwash, hair dryer, tissues and luxury shower gel and shampoo/conditioner by PAYA.

There's nothing like a wood-burning fireplace to set the tone for your mountain getaway. With WiFi, Roku and a stash of games and movies, the living area is great for nights of entertainment or lounging by the fire contemplating a simpler life. A Bluetooth speaker is located in the living room to connect your favorite playlist. Take the fun outside to the screened in deck on warmer days or even those cool Fall evenings with an outdoor heater provided for your comfort.

The stage is set in the gourmet kitchen for your cooking performance with a gas range and only steps away from the outdoor BBQ. You are guaranteed to amaze while friends and family cheer you on sitting at the large island. Enjoy your edible creations at the large table for 8 while you take in the mountain breeze and views of the Lost River valley.

This three-bedroom, three and a half-bath cabin can sleep six guests very comfortably, 8 with a sleeper sofa in the media room on the lower level. No one shares a bathroom at Cedar House. Each bedroom has a fully equipped en suite bathroom with large shower stalls and double sinks in two of the three bathrooms.

We have worked hard to provide most of the essentials for your stay at Cedar House. We do provide some necessary staples such as, spices, oil, flour sugar and coffee. Cedar House is about 20-30 minutes away from the local grocery store in Wardensville, and Walmart in Moorefield.

We look forward to having you out to the cabin.

About Damian

I live in Washington, DC and own a landscape architecture firm that focuses on penthouse terraces and urban residential spaces. After visiting Lost River for the first time a few years ago, I knew instantly that this is where I wanted to spend my time away from the city. I look forward to sharing this beautiful home with you and hope you and your friends enjoy the comforts of Lost River as I do.

Damian purchased this cabin in 2015

Why Damian chose Lost River

I want to provide guests with a space that is inviting and comfortable in many ways. The cabin is fairly large at 2400 SF but feels very cozy. With its cedar facade, interior trim, and stone fireplace, the cabin truly reminds you that you are in the mountains. At the same time, you are experiencing the quiet, tranquil lifestyle of the country without giving up most of the creature comforts that you may be used to.

What makes this cabin unique

Cedar House is located in a very clean and quiet neighborhood called The Summit. It is filled with wonderful people who are equally in love with Lost River. Most are from the city and come out to unwind and some have made this wonderful area their full-time home.

Beautiful, well-appointed and very comfortable private home.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Cedar House with another couple and our two dogs. From the moment we walked in, we felt very welcome. The house was exactly as it appears in the photos, perhaps even better. The indoor and outdoor spaces are all very well designed and generous. And while you can see some other homes in the distance through the trees, it is very, very private and quiet. A great, peaceful escape from the city. The house was stocked with everything we needed to enjoy our stay. In the mornings we enjoyed the deck overlooking the valley and the hills in the distance. Our days were spent visiting neighboring towns where you can find a few lovely shops and lunch options or hiking in George Washington National Forest. We loved the climb up Big Schloss and our dog loved swimming at Trout Pond. We spent evenings eating our meals and chatting on the huge screened porch. It was unseasonably warm for late September so we used neither the fireplace nor the firepit, but I can imagine they would be lovely on a cool fall/winter evening. The logistics were also seamless from check-in to check-out. Very well managed home. Would certainly return.

Great mountain retreat

  • 5 of 5

The home is well appointed and comfortable for a group. The amenities were great and made for a relaxing weekend in the mountains, laying in the hammock, rocking in the chairs, or staring at the stars while by the fire pit. The home is close to all Lost River has to offer and its easy to get to the Guesthouse and the state park. Damian was a great host.

Perfect Retreat!

  • 5 of 5

In just over two hours from DC, we arrived at this incredibly beautiful mountain retreat. Cedar House isn't just any mountain cabin. It's a stunningly spacious home with phenomenal views, perfect appointments, and provides optimal balance between entertainment and relaxation. Damian has done a beautiful job landscaping and designing the home. Every space balances function with aesthetic. I've traveled to Lost River several times, and this home is by far the best I've ever rented. If this is available for the time you want to travel, then don't hesitate in booking it.

As good as it gets

  • 5 of 5

The mountain retreat was a perfect weekend getaway. The house is even more beautiful than the pictures. Modern and well furnished. Nice open kitchen and dining room. The views from each level were great - into the valley and the mountains. We spent almost all of our time on the screened porch, including for all of the meals. The string lights added a great ambience. Easy access to some small towns and the national park. And Damian was very responsive and organized. Really one of the best places we've rented. Already planning a return.

The best relaxing time ever! Thank you Damian!

  • 5 of 5

Cedar house is beautiful, neat, well organized and the owner Damian makes you feel at home and keeps guiding you through all the process of arrival and departure, making you feel comfortable and also confident that everything will be in the right place. The spices, cooking tools and even food he provides, makes you feel at home.

Very thoughtful the welcoming message on the blackboard. Kids were so happy seeing their names written there. The balconies and view are amazing! I highly recommend you to visit and stay at this cabin! Thank you Damian!
