It's difficult to combine the rustic with the refined but the owners of the Guesthouse Lost River make it work beautifully. Gary and Jesse are the consummate hosts and there is a lot to like about this property. Pool, sauna, hot tub, magnificent restaurant, game room, and cozy bar - the amenities at the Guesthouse are amazing. We came here to view the Geminid meteor shower and celebrate our wedding anniversary. We wish we could have stayed longer and are definitely considering coming back in the spring when they have their horses and it's warm enough to enjoy the outdoor activities more. The sunset from the balcony of Carriage House 1 was gorgeous. Gazing at the changing colors of the clouds over the mountains, with every exhale, any issues weighing on your mind only moments before drift into insignificance replaced by overwhelming peace. And the champagne didn’t hurt either. Another interesting aspect of the Guesthouse is the collection of pieces by local (and not so local) artists – many of which are for sale. I also want to mention the food. We made reservations at the restaurant and my wife had the tossed BLT salad and Ribeye. It was grilled to perfection. I started with the pumpkin curry soup and continued with the bacon wrapped chicken. Both were beyond excellent. I never got the name of the chef but my compliments to her. Our waitress Laura was very pleasant and professional and provided excellent service. In the bar, Josh was great company and mixed some Carajillos for us based on our recipe (espresso and 43 liquor) – excellent as well. Cinnamon pancakes, scrambled eggs, fresh fruit and sausage awaited us the next morning for breakfast. We hated to leave. The Guesthouse at Lost River is very convenient to where we live in Northern Virginia and we met guests from Baltimore and Pittsburgh as well. We will be back.

I'm going to mention that this was a trip planned on a bit of a whim with a Living Social voucher that ended with an unforgettable experience! Let's start with the amazing job Gary and Jesse do with the establishment! They are very accommodating with check-in times in a sense that they will work with you. Convenient, I was able to communicate with them through email throughout my reservation and to the drive there which can be tricky but well worth the drive. Understanding, they knew we were coming from New York City which is about a 5-6 hour drive depending on traffic. Welcoming, upon arrival, you receive a warm greeting from either Gary or Jesse depending on who's available at the time. The Perfect Escape from the concrete jungle of NYC when you realize that its more than a simple bed and breakfast. You may assume that because it's in the middle of nowhere with rustic cabin-like features that it'll be a cottage from the Poconos but its amenities are far from that! You feel like you're on a resort when you start to settle in The Guest House. You get a tour of the place and realize that it's more than meets the eye. I felt a little lost at times but then you don't want to leave when you know your way around. Your experience may be different but for my girlfriend and it was an amazing getaway where we met some amazing people! We hope to return soon!

The Guesthouse Lost River is a great place to get away and unwind. The hotel staff's customer service is outstanding. To boot, the chef's menu, quality and food tastes were exceptional. Hats off to Jesse and Gary for running a great resort.

I really love The GuestHouse! It is really an amazing quick vacation away from the insanity of the Dirty City. The service is great, and the people are as pleasant as can imagine. I cannot say I have ever had a complaint!

This was my first experience with a bed and breakfast location. My boyfriend was visiting from chicago so I spent countless hours looking up a great place. After reading several reviews we selected the guesthouse, needless to say the reviews were accurate. The entire complex is in a beautiful secluded wooden paradise tucked between the mountains in WestVA. We stayed in the carriage house, and although it was freezing outside could not help but step out for countless hours just marvel The beauty around us. The room we stayed in was lovely, it had a small cottage feel with a private shower and toilet. We really enjoyed having separate heat control for the bathroom vs. main area. Everything.was very clean and well stocked. The food was outstanding. We after eating at the restaurant out first night we HAD to return. The brisket is to die for! The pasta was wonderful as well. The only thing we did not enjoy about dinner is that we didn't have enough time to try more. We did not try any appetizer so can not comment on those. The drinks were good, a few of the signature drinks were a bit sweet for our taste. Overall, wonderful experience. We will absolutely be returning : )

I am a newbie to the Guesthouse at Lost River and I fell in love. The restaurant had a great menu. I ordered a pasta dish and it was so flavorful and delicious. The rooms were nice and there was a great gym but a hot tub and sauna!! I will definitely be making this a new "relax and unwind" spot!! Thank you Michael and Gary, you are the best innkeepers I have ever come across. See you soon! Marie
