About the Property
Barn, 5 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 9-19)
Built in the 1930s and used as a working barn up until the 1980s, this chestnut oak beam barn still has the feel of a barn, but with all the comforts of a modern lodge. Wood and tile floors, high ceilings, lots of windows, a big handmade pine table (seats 12), and original folk art line the walls. Relax out on the deck with your favorite beverage and watch the deer, or find a movie from the movie collection and unwind on the nice soft sectional couch.
Ground floor has two bedrooms, two full baths with jacuzzi tubs, kitchen, dinning room, seating next to a gas fireplace, sun room with two full size futons that can be curtained off for privacy, dining and living room. Bedroom at top of stairs with full size bed and two single pull-outs and half bath. Open door and walk into the upper deck of the barn. Grand space with exposed barn beams and 17ft high ceiling. Two loft bedrooms, one with a full size bed and a twin cot. Second loft bedroom has two bunks, each with a full size bottom and single top. There is a cozy loft within this loft with a full size futon and single cot.
Amazing views from each of the windows.
After you get settled in, take a drive down the mountain and enjoy some horseback riding at Hidden Valley Trails near the State Park, then drive to the valley and explore the Lost River Artisan's Cooperative where local artists sell their crafts. Visit the Lost River Museum located on the ground floor of the Artisan's Cooperative. A short walk from the Artisan's Cooperative is the Lost River General Store where you can find a selection of candles, jewerly and gifts, gourmet beer and wine, and enjoy lunch and a hand dipped cone or cappuccino. Don't want to cook dinner? No problem, enjoy a delicious dinner at the award winning Lost River Guest House, just up the road from the Lost River General Store.
Cap off your beautiful and active day back at the barn stargazing the milkyway overhead. Enjoy a nice serene weekend at the Lost River Barn. It's the most unique lodging in the area.

Year Purchased: 2004
About the owner: Jay Moglia and Audrey Taucher bought and renovated the barn with plans to make it the perfect place for cyclists to train. Jay has been a competive cyclist for nearly 20 years and after years on the road in shoddy hotels, wanted to create a place that had all the comforts and ameneties one could ever dream up coming back to after a hard training ride. After two years of spending entire weekends and vacation time renovating the barn, Lost River Barn was finally open for business. It has hosted some of the most competitive cycling teams in the DC region in addition to teams and competitors from Philly and Pittsburgh. While the barn was initially created to serve as a training facility for cyclists, it is not just for cyclists. Many people use the barn for weekend and vacation get-aways, wedding anniversary's, and family reunions.
Why the Owner Chose Mathias, WV, USA:
We have always loved West Virginia. The hilly terrain makes for a perfect location for cycling and hiking.
The Unique Benefits at this Barn:
Nothing beats mountain air and the peaceful sounds of birds chirping and watching the deer, and occassional bear, pass through.
