Overview

About the property

A Beautifully Remodeled "Rustic Modern" Farmhouse

Our farmhouse, built in 1900, is situated in a valley on five acres in the Lost River area. We describe its style as "rustic modern," meaning that it retains much of its century-old character, but has been renovated into a loft with a two-story window looking out on the pasture, a barn and the mountains beyond. The first floor has a dining and living area, fully equipped kitchen, bathroom, laundry area and a bedroom with a queen-sized bed. The dining area opens to a large deck that looks on to the mountains. There is a fire pit, charcoal grill, and loungers, perfect for relaxing with a cup of coffee in the morning, or a glass of wine in the evening while gazing at the amazing stars that are visible on any clear evening. The kitchen opens to a screened-in porch with a table and chairs. The second floor has a living area loft that overlooks the dining room and the two-story window and is furnished with a sofa and television. There is also a second bedroom with a queen-sized bed.

Why Eric chose Mathias

We bought this farmhouse and the five acres it sits on in 2010 to escape the hustle and bustle of our lives in Washington, DC. It's a special place to kick back, open up a good book, a bottle of wine, and find peace.

What makes this farmhouse unique

Close to the Lost River community, with state park for hiking, horseback riding and swimming; a yoga studio; the Lost River General Store, which makes great lunches; the Lost River Trading Post in Wardensville, which was featured in the New York Times; and much more! The community is small but wonderfully progressive, and offers something for everyone -- a great spot for relaxation or social activities.

Fantastic

  • 5 of 5

Such a special spot. Cozy and peaceful. We love it there, and are able to take such a deep breath. Eric is wonderfully helpful and kind. It's the kind of spot people in movies go for a weekend away, and you think "if only real-life places could be that charming and bucolic and picturesque."

The perfect weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

The house was very cute and well-equipped. It had Wi-Fi, fire pit, lots of beautiful scenery around, and very cute decorations. We very much enjoyed our weekend at the house.

Great weekend getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Highly recommend this cabin for a weekend getaway. We went with another couple and our dogs and loved it! Cabin was absolutely adorable, lots of natural light, and very cozy. We spent most of our time on the back porch around the fire pit. Definitely pay a visit!

Great place

  • 4 of 5

Very much enjoyed this place. If you're looking for a place to unwind and maybe go on a hike or two, it's a great spot. Definitely get groceries prior to the trip because there is not much selection in the surrounding area.

The house is comfortable with great light and a nice deck. I just went there to read for the weekend and it was great for that.

Restful getaway

  • 5 of 5

Confirming all the glowing reviews already here. Farmhouse was a quiet and peaceful getaway for the three of us (wife and 9-year-old daughter). Lost River State Park is a jewel. House is quite nice and just as advertised -- it's an old farmhouse with the realities that come with that (iron in the water; flies; a rooster next door who begins his day around 5 am), so you need to be prepared for that. It is not a McMansion in a ski resort -- it is unique. We brought a week's worth of food, stacks of books, Wellies for walking through the tall grass on the hillside, and largely forgot our cellphones. Finally Eric (the owner) was extremely helpful, as was his local caretaker.
