About the property

3 Bedroom Cabin/sleeps 6 With Mountain Views And Modern Accommodations

Go to www.LostRiver77.com for more info. Whether you need a getaway from the stress of the city, or looking for some of the most acclaimed outdoor activities and scenery in the Mid-Atlantic, LostRiver77 has it all. Situated at the top of the ridge overlooking the George Washington National Forest and the Appalachian Mountains, LostRiver77 will allow you to relax and enjoy the best of West Virginia.

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.

Why Greg Roberts and Daniel Brewer chose Lost River

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!

What makes this house unique

The architecture of this home is unique for this area, and our mid-century modern decor blends well with it.

77 Tom's Knob Approach is the perfect place for a get away trip. The beautiful home is nestled near the top of a mountain with breath-taking views and privacy. I will definitely be going again!

Everything was just right.

  • 5 of 5

We came to Top-of-Mountain for the 2017 solar eclipse and had a wonderful time. The view into both valleys below, north and south, is stunning. The quiet is so satisfying after city noise. Greg and Daniel's home is perfectly designed and maintained and Greg was always immediately available for questions and assistance.

We loved our time here and in the Lost River area -- such a great find and only a couple hours away, even better. Our favorite thing was coffee on the enclosed porch with the windows open. The view from there was amazing... and, given it rained on and off during our stay, we were happy to still be able to enjoy it even if we weren't outside. We went on some incredible hikes, saw tons of wildlife, and left feeling restored. The house had everything we needed to hunker down for a few days. Thank you so much!

Well appointed house with beautiful views

  • 5 of 5

Great place for six of us to stay over Easter weekend. The house had all the things we needed: glassware, kitchen equipment and grill to allow us to cook at home most of the weekend. We'd go back

Absolutely Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

What an incredible weekend! We are so grateful to Greg and Daniel for sharing their beautiful cabin with us. The views were amazing, house was SPOTLESS, and the place was wonderfully decorated. I especially enjoyed the painting over the fireplace. I cannot express how much we loved our weekend here. Thank you both!
