I experienced Lost River with my husband, his family, and a large group of my brother-in-law's friends to celebrate his 40th birthday. I haven't stopped thinking about it since! The beauty of the location in the fall overlooking the colorful foliage, the clean air and quiet setting from the dew covered morning until the coolness of the evening watching the sunset brought a calm to my body and a comfort to my heart. Whether you sat quietly rocking in a chair wrapped in a comforter with a cup of tea, on the deck with a glass of wine, or looking through a window from the comfort of your bed, your day started and ended with the peacefulness that is difficult to find anywhere in the Baltimore or Washington area.
The accomodations were comfortable and casual, yet refined. The old fashioned family style breakfast was a relaxing start to the day and the elegant dinner with exquisite cuisine and presentation was an unexpected pleasure especially given the large group we had. The staff was very efficient and attentive and made us feel like we were their only guests (of course this wasn't the case). It was hard to believe that we could have such a dining experience in this rustic location.
In all honesty I had no idea what to expect when plans were made to come to this location which my brother-in-law spoke of so highly as a gay resort he enjoyed coming to yearly with his partner and friends. I can honestly say that I have always had fun with this mixed group of friends and family, but this location, the owners, and staff made it even more enjoyable and relaxing than I could have dreamed.
My husband and I plan to return because we found ourselves equally as welcome and comfortable as a straight couple. Kudos to the Lost River! Julie
