We stayed here under a friends recommendations. It was fantastic. The food was great and the new owners are super friendly and helpful. They provided exceptional service and courtesy. We will return as much as possible. The rooms are nice and the lodge is spacious and rustic and a great place to relax.

It is such a great feeling to return to the hospitality industry and be able to provide our city guests with an escape from the city for the week/weekend! Thank you for your continued business.

Most people know that the Guesthouse is wonderful for a weekend getaway, few know that it is a terrific place to host a small corporate retreat mid-week. I’ve done a couple of team building sessions here and it was the perfect location. The rooms were comfortable, the food delicious, and the service impeccable for both the meeting organizer and the clients.

Thank you for your feedback! We really appreciate it and we continue to expand our mid-week corporate offerings! We have a few corporate, church and university retreats coming up. We just hosted an entire weekend for a wonderful group in DC as well. As owners we left the corporate world and entered back into hospitality and attended many retreats. We are trying to make the experience the best it can be! We hope to have you all back soon! Cheers!

Looking for a quiet retreat away from the city? Consider The Guest House at Lost River in West Virginia. Just a short two hour drive from Washington DC, The Guest House offers a serene escape from the bustle of the city. Many different room options, on-site lounge and restaurant. The main house consists of several different public areas where you can find a secluded couch to curl up and read a book or jump online (wifi avail.).
After a nice hike in the woods and a quick nap, pop down to the lounge for a cocktail or glass of wine. Locals frequent the restaurant and bar and the proprietors are always around to attend to their guests. Can't wait for the warm weather, so that my quick afternoon nap will be poolside.

Some friends and I booked a last minute trip from DC for the weekend. It was a first time visit after a suggestion of some friends in DC. It was just about two hours door to door. We had dinner in the restaurant both nights and enjoyed one of the cabaret shows. The food was excellent and they made a mean Ketel One dirty martini! I brought my dog which was great! She loved being out there and had fun (FYI there was a minimal fee). The views are stunning and I didn't want to leave! The sunrise/sunsets were spectacular and I don't think I have ever seen so many stars! Cheers to the hosts and staff. We will be back soon!

Room Tip: The upper level in the main building has a great view!

Nice quite place with web access but no wireless phone service. Bar, restaurant food, and staff are just fantastic! I like to do two holiday a year at least. You just cannot beat the price and resort services with close proximity to DC. Great for couples and friends that just want to spend some time together.

Room Tip: Call about pet room, there are few restrictions.

We have been heard such good things about this place for years, but never followed through and booked a room. A last minute desire to head out of DC for Labor Day, I checked out the website and booked two nights. From the moment we arrived, we were made to feel at home. Intimate setting tucked into the mountainside, cozy room and relaxing atmosphere. Met a lot of new people from all over the area. Liked it so much, we booked another stay over the Columbus Day weekend. Totally different group of people, different vibe, but still wonderful!
