Only two hours from the Beltway, the countryside of the Lost River region is especially appealing to those who love the outdoors: hikers, cyclists, or anyone who just wants to get away from the city for a spell.

The Lost River Barn is in a meadow at 2,735 feet. The barn was built in the ’30’s and was at one time part of a cattle farm.


It has since been converted to a house with five bedrooms and three and half baths.  Both full bathrooms have Jacuzzi tubs.  The common area has three big rooms. There is a gas fireplace and a video/dvd screen with an assortment of viewing options, as well as cable and wifi. There is also an ipod docking station and a cd/tape deck.

The kitchen is fully equipped, pots pans and plates, stove, micro wave, toaster and coffee machine. There is also a gas grill on the back deck.

Each bedroom has a full size bed and there are six additional pull out sleepers on site. The barn comes fully stocked with bed linens, towels, comforters, etc. A washer and dryer is also on the premises.

Rates are $900 a weekend, for up to six people. Additional guests are $120 each.  One additional night is $400 and next three is $150 per night.

Clean and well mannered dogs are welcome to come enjoy the barn with their people.  Dog fee is $25 for one, $35 for two.  No more than two dogs at a time please.

Come enjoy the beauty of Hardy County and watch the wildlife (deer, wild turkey, humming birds, and the occasional black bear) while sipping your favorite beverage on the deck.   There’s no better way to unwind and relax.
