Beautiful Mountain View During The Day And Star Filled Night Sky
Paula Morris/Deborah Hyman
About Paula Morris/Deborah Hyman
We purchased what was then called ‘Llangollen' in 1991. We have been fortunate to have a lovely cabin to which we continue to escape where the air is fresh, rush hour is only created as we hurry back from the pond so not to miss out on our nightly ritual of sitting on the expansive deck while sipping wine as we gaze out toward the mountain to watch the sunset. We want to share this alluring peaceful get away with people who appreciate mother nature and crystal clear starry or moonlit skies. You'll have both the rural mountain feel and all of the conveniences of home. Perfect for a romantic getaway or for kids who will love to romp in our back yard. Over the past 25 plus years, our cabin has been modernized with new floors, windows and doors, new electric oven, frost free refrigerator, window A/C units, efficient ceiling fans all topped off with the mountain facing deck.

Why Paula Morris/Deborah Hyman chose Lost River
Almost heaven Red Bud Haven is located in the pollution free mountains of West Virginia. Only two hours drive from Washington D.C., (3 hours Baltimore, 3 1/2 hours Richmond, 5 hours Philadelphia) this newly renovated cabin is tucked away in the woods and offers you the pristine beauty of the Shenandoah Mountains. Nearby is the George Washington National Forest and Lost River State Park, there is a wide range of recreational activities: swimming, horseback riding, hiking, antiquing, fishing, canoeing, archery, as well as fine dining or simple, country eating. During the winter months, skiing is convenient. There is a local museum that has World War II artifacts. You can even take a yoga class at the local yoga center. Lots to choose from or just relax and enjoy the beautiful unobstructed mountain view seen through the large a-frame window. Washington magazine writes, “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.' You'll have your choice of the Lost River State Park, where the Hidden Trails Stables is located for horseback riding, archery, outdoor pool, tennis and a restaurant. Also nearby is the Trout Pond Recreation Area at the George Washington National Forest, with fishing, a gentle lake with a beach for swimming, lovely light walking or more serious hiking.

Red Bud Haven
Red Bud Haven is a great place to stay in Lost River--spacious, well furnished, comfortable, clean and in a beautiful location. I definitely recommend it. The only reason I didn't give it five stars for cleanliness is that the furniture on the screened porch was dusty.
Good getaway from DC! Not too far a drive, yet woodsy and peaceful. I loved seeing the wildlife and listening to the birds. Nice place, good value. Will definitely return!
My family and I had a great time. The property was clean and amenities were suitable. If you’re looking for an outdoorsy experience, I would certainly recommend this property.
Very nice experience
Nice place, very clean with pretty much everything you need, plenty of towels, kitchen utensils, plates, cups, etc. (just bring your own spices). The pics don't do it justice, the place turned out to be much better than I expected, very cozy with comfy furniture, lots of light and a huge deck.
Nice and neat
We had a very nice time, with plenty of quiet neighborhood
Plans for future rent
