traveler reviews for this lost river cottage rental

Fabulous Getaway!

Review submitted: August 16, 2014   Date of arrival: July 26, 2014

The two of us and our two dogs were looking for a place where we could get some much needed R&R, and Lost River Swiss fit the bill perfectly. We stayed for a week (and ended up wishing we could have stayed longer). The pictures don't do full justice to the beautiful views and the sweeping acreage.

The cottage is as pictured inside and obviously has been newly renovated. It has very comfortable couches, and much nicer linens than you'd expect in a vacation rental.

It was wonderful to sit out on the wraparound deck with our morning coffee, take in the views, and enjoy watching the dogs going 'free range' and playing on the hill just below us. They loved chasing bunnies and smelling the country smells, and their daily afternoon splash in the little creek on the property.

There are a number of restaurants with 15-20 minutes (although some aren't open earlier in the week). We had several lunches at the General Store, and great dinner and beer at the brew pub in Wardensville, along with dinner at The Guest House. (Definitely bring most groceries from home since the stores nearby are tiny.) We spent our time reading, hiking, checking out the nearby state parks, chilling out, movie-watching and golfing (golfers, try Bryce Resort in VA instead of Valley View in Moorefield;.further away but worth it-- great weekday deals via Golfnow .com).

Tammy was wonderful to deal with from start to finish, and very responsive on email when I had questions before our trip. We ended up having to have a package delivered via Fed Ex, and Bob was kind enough to let us send it to their place since we would be out that day, and he dropped it off for us.

David suggested an excellent hike from the cottage zigging and zagging up the mountain, which gave us a chance to see the outside of some of the other rentals higher up. [For us, having the 10 acres without close neighbors so the dogs could run around was worth it. The lightly traveled road on the other side of the creek does have a few more cars on weekends, but it was definitely the right trade-off for us.]

And you can't beat having a Saturday farmer's market within a three-minute walk. We came away with two full bags of fresh veggies, fruits, cheeses, baked goods...so many yummy things! The dogs also said 'paws up' to the homemade dog treats. There's even a fenced dog park area right beside the market if your dogs want to make new friends.

To sum it up...great property, great views, great owners!

Wonderful place to get away

Review submitted: June 3, 2014   Date of arrival: May 23, 2014

We had a wonderful weekend at the Lost River Swiss Cottage. The house comes with extra touches like shampoo and a hair dryer, and it was very clean and comfortable. And the views are spectacular! We will definitely be back.
