About the property

2br, 1.5 bath cabin with stunning mountain views

LOST RIVER, WV is 2 hours from DC, 2.5 – 3.5 hours from Baltimore and Richmond, and 5 hours from Philadelphia. It is situated between the George Washington National Forest, and the Lost River State Park.

The ground floor of this secluded cabin features a living room, dining room, half bath, kitchen, screened porch and large deck with stunning views. The second floor has huge bathroom (with amazing shower) and bedroom with private deck. The third floor is an open loft, with another large private deck and the best views. Each floor has a ceiling fan, hardwood floors, and tons of windows.

The cabin sits on 5 wooded acres, atop a very steep, secluded hill. AWD recommended, but even without AWD most cars can get MOST of the way up the hill, but no guarantees. The cabin has wifi, in-ceiling speakers, comfy chairs and beds, and soothing views over acres and acres of wilderness. Unfortunately there is no trash service, so guests must remove their own trash.

Dogs only. No cats or other pets, please. No smoking anywhere on property.

RATES: Please note that the daily rate is for two (2) people. Each additional person over 5 years old is $35 per night. Holiday rates apply. The dog fee is $50 per pet, per visit and a maximum of two dogs.

I do not currently offer a military discount.

About Kevin Wood

I built the cabin starting in 2007 based on plans I found on The original version of the cabin was designed for a couple in Maine. The Maine version has lots more windows, which after visiting my copy, you'll find hard to believe! I fell in love with Lost River after spending many weekends at friends' houses here. You'll love it too!

Kevin Wood purchased this cabin in 2008

Why Kevin Wood chose West Virginia

Great location close to everything (15 mins to yoga, Lost River General Store, LR Crafts Cooperative, a bit further to the State Park and Trout Pond). View from the cabin is trees, trees, trees and very little that is man-made. You feel like you're in a tree fort!

What makes this cabin unique

A cabin that is modern! Clean lines, very bright, very open. Great kitchen, large deck and screened porch.

There is no TV.

Great Location, Beautiful Home

  • 5 of 5

Stunning views and a great location to explore nearby parks. Shenandoah is a quick day trip, and Lost River State Park is ~20 mins away. The cabin was beautiful, exceptionally clean, and included all the needed amenities for a nice long weekend.

Calm and relaxing weekend stay

  • 5 of 5

Great place for a get-a-way! The design of the house is clever and created a cozy and comfortable feel. We enjoyed watching the sunrise through the mountains while remaining in bed. Lost River State Park provided us with an afternoon hike. Deer could be seen in the yard during the evening. Owner was responsive and helpful prior to and during our stay.

Beautifully furnished scenic getaway

  • 5 of 5

My family and I enjoyed our Thanksgiving holiday in this wonderful retreat, just hours outside of DC. Waking up to the rolling hills of West Virginia provided much needed respite from the city. The well appointed kitchen and charcoal grill allowed to cook and share our meals together. Highly recommended!

Relaxing getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and our two dogs stayed at Kevin's cabin for 5 nights in August, and we had the most relaxing time! The cabin is full of things to do, with books galore, magazines, and games - not to mention the breathtaking views. The home is so modernized and very comfortable - it feels like home. I fell in love with the amount of windows in the cabin, and the mornings were my absolute favorite part of the vacation. The sunrise was absolutely perfect.

Two of the days we left the cabin and went exploring. We were lucky enough to go through Lost River (or Lost City?) and find a local meat market (Teet's Meat Market I believe), a café/gift shop right next to the meat market (which is also right next to the Yoga studio), and also a farmer's market all within 10 miles from the cabin, which made for some delicious local grilled dinner. We also found a gravel road off in the distance near Trout Pond/George Washington National Forest, and saw a baby black bear cub cross the road right in front of our car! It was quite the sight!

Also, with me being an animal lover, I was very happy to see two dog beds as well as dog bowls already at the cabin (even though we brought our own). The dogs absolutely loved the decks to sunbathe and the woods to run around in.

I would recommend bringing bottled water if you struggle with the hard water. We brought a few cases just in case and it worked out perfectly.

We would highly recommend this cabin if you are looking for the perfect quiet, secluded getaway!
