We had a great time. Loved the cabin, the grounds and the wood burning stove so much we literally did not leave the property all weekend. It was extremely cozy and relaxing. We were also fortunate to have both a clear starry night and a snowy one!
It has everthing you need for a weekend away. We hope to return when the trees are leafed out- i imagine it's spectacular
Chris was great to work with. The directions he provided etc were clear and well detailed. The kitchen had all we needed to make delish meals. The fireplace provided a nice warmth to the house and paired with wine, was fabulous. Overall, nice place to stay to be in the quiet. Would love to travel up again in another season to celebrate simple living at LRM.
The extensive CD collection and surround sound speakers were a great way to unwind too. We rediscovered artists that we both love to listen to. Ample space for a romantic getaway weekend or for a group retreat.
The views from LRM are breathtaking, you feel like you are nestled in the mountains, away from it all. We traveled for a winter getaway, but were able to spend some time on the Adirondack chairs on the patio and star gaze. (what clarity and beauty!)
The hub's and my wish for a great 2015? Visit LRM in each season!
Thank you Chris!
Great place! You can have music playing through the house all weekend and the view is beautiful. Very relaxing.
We are officially obsessed with lostrivermodern. It's even better in person than it shows on the listing (and it certainly doesn't show poorly on the listing)! The place was very clean, bright, and open. The views off the deck during our fall weekend stay were incredible.
It was the perfect space for a weekend of reading, relaxing, and just escaping the "real world" in general. We loved every second.
We had a perfect weekend without a single complaint.
Thank you so much!
The house was a stunning as described in the airbnb listing. Chris provided all of the important and useful info necessary for us to completely enjoy our time at Lost River Modern. It was a beautiful home, in a spectacular setting-and, like other reviewers-I hesitate to be so positive-Because we want to be able to have access for a return visit!!!!
The house was absolutely amazing! It feels so open with all the windows throughout. The location is secluded and very comfortable feeling. LRM was an excellent place to get away to and just relax. We spent most of our time on the deck or in the hot tub. Our 19 month old had the time of his life with all the toys. The kitchen was stocked with anything you would need to cook a meal. The host provided fantastic details about directions to the house and things to do around the area. We can't wait to go back again. Thank you to whomever put the extensive CD collection together, it definitely had a touch of anything you wanted to listen to.
Well, the best way to sum up our experience at this awesome prefab modern cabin is to say that WE WISH WE WERE STILL THERE. This cabin is great. Simply, and beautifully designed. The location is great. We enjoyed several hikes in nearby (practically down the street) Lost River State Park. We went here with another couple, and really enjoyed the communal space. The open kitchen/dining/living area is perfect for hanging out, cooking meals, listening to music (good speakers inside and out). And the weather was beautiful, so we logged quite a bit of time out on the big deck with the great view. We took in the sunset from that porch each evening. And there just happened to be a meteor shower the first night we were there, and the deck proved to be a great place to watch shooting stars. Oh, and beds were comfy too - always a plus in my book! Thanks for a wonderful time!
