Lost River, WV may not be well known among urbanites in the DC area and I hope it stays that way! It's a beautiful, tranquil, and welcoming community where life slows down and every breath is full of fresh air.
Toni and Ted, the owners of the Inn, have done a phenomenal job creating a comfortable, luxurious, and inviting place to stay in the heart of Lost River. Never have I stayed at a B&B where I felt I had such a nice balance of of privacy and an open invitation to make myself feel at home. Their meals are both artful and tasty. The rooms are comfortable and well appointed. A Saturday afternoon wine and cheese hour?... what a treat! The General Store and nearby Yoga studio-- both located within steps of the main house-- were delightful amenities to our stay.
But nothing beats the warmness, hospitality, and genuine kindness of Toni, Ted, and the Inn staff. They provided helpful recommendations, made reservations on our behalf for nearby activities, and engaged each one of their guests on a personal level. I plan on returning soon and making this a regular getaway spot from the hectic DC life.
