The nearly 2,000 square foot home is part of a homeowners association to take care of the roads and general properties, and has all of the charm of a mountain cabin but with the comforts of a modern home. It sits on five acres, which are great to explore right out the back door. The overall design is mid-century modern, and we are constantly renovating and making changes to the design elements of the home. The three spacious bedrooms sleeps up to six people comfortably with new beds, including a king, queen, and two singles (which can be converted to a king bed).
The living room has a new flat screen LCD TV with plenty of channels through DISH Network, and a DVD/BluRay player. We have an assortment of movies to watch, or you can bring your own; perfect for a quiet movie night on the couch. We also have free wi-fi available that is amazingly fast via fiber optic lines.
The stone wood-burning fireplace nearly takes up one side of the living room wall and is the focal point of the space.
The kitchen has all of the conveniences you will need to entertain for a house full of friends or just cook for two. There is a refrigerator, stove and oven, a microwave, dishwasher, garbage disposal, and plenty of space. It comes stocked with cookware and dishes, glasses (including wine and champagne flutes --- of course), silverware, modern coffee maker, and other kitchen essentials (fresh herbs are planted right outside the door). There is also a four-seat breakfast table next to the kitchen to enjoy your coffee while you start your day.
The sun porch boasts the best overlook views of the mountains and forest. There is a large couch and seating area to relax, enjoy the breezes and sounds of nature, and get lost in a good book or conversation. The porch also has a dining room table that can be expanded to fit up to eight people. Perfect for a nice evening dinner with friends with amazing scenic views.
The deck extends the entire side of the house and has views of both sides of the ridge. There is a brand new six-burner gas grill, some adirondack chairs, and a new patio table and seating for up to eight people. In the yard next to the deck, there is a large open fire pit to enjoy, as well. Plenty of space to get a game of cornhole (also available) started while hanging out on the deck.
Lost River has quite a bit of activities to enjoy if you are the adventurous type. There are numerous hiking trails, rafting/canoeing, horseback riding, skiing and fishing. If you want to enjoy a nice dinner out or grab a drink and socialize among the other residents, there are several choices including the Guest House Inn at Lost River (restaurant and bar -- and a pool), a brewpub in the nearby town, and several other places to grab a bite or drink close by.
All said, we love Lost River for so many reasons. We know that you will love it just as much as we do.
Daniel is a real estate agent, covering the DC-metro area. Greg works in the Business Development and Marketing industry. Both of us love collecting wine, traveling, and we are definitely foodies. A good time to us is enjoying a great bottle of wine and playing with our two adorable dogs, Chico and Aztec.
Greg Roberts and Daniel Brewer purchased this house in 2015
We have heard so much about Lost River from our friends, who were spending a lot of time here. So we decided to come up and see what it was all about. We saw this property and fell in love immediately. The views took our breath away and the style of this home was unique for the area. After the first night we stayed in this house, we woke up to views of fog rolling over the mountains. We stood there, drinking our coffee and looking at this view, and knew that we made the right decision for a getaway from our busy lives.
Although it is nearly perfect as it is, we constantly like to change and update our designs so you will see things change from time to time. We have so many great plans to add even more views from nearly every room of the house, increase the deck square footage, add more artwork (we love to collect art as well), and so much more. We hope that you will go on this journey with us and return as often as you can!
The architecture of this home is unique for this area, and our mid-century modern decor blends well with it.
The area where the house is located is wonderful and amazing. However, the house needs some renovation done. The fridge and freezer was full of old left over stuff from previous people - strange and irritating. The coffee machine was not cleaned for a while so we did not use it - we like our morning coffee :-( Also we were hoping to have a nice steak on the outside gas grill but much to our disappointment that was out of operation also. All in all we had a good time due to the amazing views and sounds of nature. But please take some of the rent to get it reinvested into the house and maybe have a talk to your cleaning person.
It was a girl's weekend, we were there for a wedding of a dear friend at the Guesthouse close by.
Greg and Daniel thought of everything needed, it was a home away from home. The property was just as advertised, actually the pictures didn't do it justice, the home was lovely - perfect amount of rustic and modern and comfort. And the views were simply gorgeous!
I'll have to bring the hubby next time for a romantic weekend.
Rented the home for a party of 5. Spacious house providing all comfort required to spend a relaxed quality time with my family. Super responsive and helpful owners. Great area with plenty of options to do outdoor activities. Well deserves top review and 5 stars.
Very spacious house with beautiful views. Great beds, dinning space, grill and AC (you'll need it in the summer). Would definitely return.
You will love this place!! The owners really care about making your stay enjoyable. From answering a multitude of questions to making recommendations for activities to suit a 5 year old, they were very kind and patient. You can tell they are lovingly renovating and adding creature comforts like the TV, wifi, and dish network made it a better experience for my whole family. The beds are really comfortable -- in fact, I'm ordering the same MBR mattress for my guest room! The porch was my favorite room - truly a room with a view. We used their fire pit - a generous supply of wood is supplied. The grill was a nice bonus for those of us not trained in campfire cooking. The area is fun to explore -- we enjoyed fishing at Trout Pond, drove to Skyline Caverns, explored Wardensville, and spent the day at Lost River State Park with our kids. Enjoy your stay!
This place was awesome....we had five people (son, daughter-in-law, daughter , wife and me) and it was the perfect place for us....the pictures don't do the place justice...it was way more than we imagined. We only stayed two nites and wished we could have stayed more..comfortable bedrooms and plenty of room for the adults to hang out in the great room, screened porch, deck or yard. The views we terrific and the house was stocked better than most so we brought way more than we needed because it was already there for us...thank you for opening your home and making it available for us and our dogs!!!
We will stay here again and recommend!!!
