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 cable tv, 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.
