The Westlands at Lost River is surrounded by mature hardwood forest and nestled up against public park land of the George Washington National Forest about 2 hours from the Washington DC Metro Area.
Westlands is ideal for families, couples, adventurers, business people and four-legged companions (no cats, our apologies!).
Disconnect, relax, socially distance and unwind in the heart of Lost River.

The space
First and foremost, we want to assure you that we take the Coronavirus Pandemic seriously. We are committed to taking extra precautions to ensure the safety of our guests, including extensive cleaning and 48-hour rest-time between stays. If you have any questions about our cleaning and sanitation procedures, please don’t hesitate to reach out and ask.

Westlands in a charming 2-bedroom, 2-bath cabin with natural wood-paneling indoors and wood siding outdoors to make you feel cozy and at home as you get away.

The main level has ramp-access to the front door. The lower level is accessible via the interior staircase or an exterior sliding door.

The main level consists of an open-space living room, dining room and kitchen. There is table space to seat 8 at two separate tables. The kitchen is a full kitchen with a microwave, oven, dishwasher, fridge, freezer and sink. The freezer is equipped with an ice-maker and in-door water. Additionally, we are equipped with a coffee maker, filters, teapot and basic coffee and tea.

The living room has a TV and DVD player, and you are welcome to make use of our DVD collection, books, games (located in entertainment center) and craft supplies (located in cupboard behind the table).

There is a gas fireplace in the living room that guests may use. Instructions for use are in the guest binder. The living room connects to a wraparound screened porch with a full gas grill and table for four. Enjoy time relaxing in the rocker, playing tic tac toe with our porch set, or laying in the hammock with a good book.

The living room connects to the main level bedroom, with two single beds, a small loft, and a full bathroom with shower.

The stairs lead from the living room to the downstairs level, with a large sitting room containing the second gas stove/fireplace and a daybed with trundle. There is also a wood-burning stove. The wood-burning stove is not safe to use, and is not available for guests.

The sitting room enters into the master bedroom with a queen-sized bed, a connected laundry room, and full bathroom with shower.

Outside, we have a fire pit for you to use. Wood supply is adjacent to the shed.

A quick note on Wi-Fi. We do not have Wi-Fi access at the cabin. While we understand the appeal during this pandemic when many are working remotely, we are currently keeping Westlands as a place where we can get away from that by disconnecting. We apologize for any inconvenience.

We look forward to your stay at Westlands!

Lost River, West Virginia, United States

We absolutely love the Lost River/Wardensville area.

The Westlands property is adjacent to thousands of acres of the George Washington National Forest. National forest land boundary is marked by red paint on the trees at the border.

Westlands is located 5 minutes by car from Trout Pond National Recreation Area. There is swimming at Rockcliff lake in the Recreation area from Memorial Day through Labor Day. There is a small fee for day use during this time ($8.00 cash). Fishing, kayaking and canoeing are all available at Rockcliff Lake. Check local regulations for permits for fishing. Bring your own gear- no rentals. Trout Pond also has beautiful hiking and overnight campsites.

Westlands is located 20 minutes by car from Lost River State Park. Lost River State Park has hiking, horseback riding, and a beautiful public pool built by the Civilian Conservation Corps in the 1930s.

The Lost River Farmer’s Market in Lost City (10 minute by car) is open on Saturday mornings only for coffee and home-baked pastries and small meals.

The Lost River Artisan’s Co-op (15 minutes by car) carries beautiful art from local artisans, and is a must-stop for shopping.

One of the best restaurants in the area is the Guesthouse Lost River, with fine dining and an excellent bar with live music many weekends. Call ahead for a reservation; seating by reservation only.

No trip is complete without making the 20 minute drive into Wardensville to enjoy shopping and small bites and wine, beer and cider at the Lost River Trading Post or the amazing bakery and organic farm produce of the Wardensville Garden Market.
