A really great weekend getaway - especially in the Fall with the colorful leaves. This place is truly remote so make sure to bring your own food and a good book. The house is really modern and cozy. When traveling with another couple, be aware that it is very small and there is no sink in the bathroom. This wasn’t an issue for us, but something to be aware of. Really loved our time here!

A very clean, cozy and stylish house in the quiet of the forest. We had a very relaxing time enjoying the crisp fall air and beautiful leaves from the porch and soaking in the hot tub. The kitchen had excellent appliances and we loved cooking all our meals here. Our pets also had a great time and we were grateful that this place accommodated them.

The hosts were great communicators, sending really clear instructions and thoughtful guidance on great hikes and other things to do in the area, as well as responding instantly to questions.

The place was better than we expected and we highly recommend this to couples wanting a retreat.

We loved the seclusion and simple decorations of The Black Oak. The bed was incredibly comfortable, inviting, and huge! The peace and solitude were exactly what we needed. We will be back!

My wife and I visited this special place for our 1 year anniversary with our dog. It was so magical and peaceful. The stars at night left you speechless and the special touches let us know how much work went into the home. We would love to come back!

Our weekend stay at the Black Oak was nothing short of amazing. A quiet, peaceful, super CLEAN, & comfortable place to unwind for the weekend with our dogs. We enjoyed our first night out by the fire & had a perfect view of the stars (even saw a shooting star). The welcome kit with s’mores, granola, and pancake mix was so kind and made for such great treats.

Not only was the home well equipped for us, but for the dogs also. The pups enjoyed many hikes on the property and many naps on the porch. As if the weekend couldn’t get any better, Mother Nature brought in a storm to end our last night. The sound of the rain on the metal (or aluminum?) roof of the home was so peaceful to put us right to sleep in the incredibly cozy beds. And when we weren’t relaxing, the aesthetic of the home made for some awesome opportunities for photo worthy memories that we will keep forever!

We will definitely be returning to Lost River Vacations, possibly even trying out other rentals that are offered. (And we plan to stay longer this time, too!). Thank you!

We loved staying at the Black Acorn. It was all we imagined and more. Our children loved the home. We made S'mores at the Fire Pit and saw the most amazing stars late at night. Owners were so receptive with communication. Directions sent prior to our arrival were perfect and very detailed oriented. Amazing location. We will visit again the next time we are in Lost River.

The cabin was a wonderful space and we managed to fit 3 couples and baby in it for three nights without too much squeezing. The deck was an amazing place to eat and hang out and we loved the hot tub. The lost River state park is a great nearby day destination. We look forward to coming back in the fall!

My husband and I stayed at the Black Oak house for a week, and we loved every second of it. The view from the deck is great, the beds are super cozy and the amount of stars you can see at night is fantastic! We made sure to venture out to Luray caverns, and the Cave Ridge winery, both about an hour drive from the house. We also spent time at Lost River State Park, hiking and even horseback riding! Cant recommend this place enough.
Word to the wise, come prepared for some bugs. It’s in the woods, of course some ants and flies will sneak into the house. The owners provide fly swatters and citronella candle, but definitely don’t forget the bug spray. The noseeums were particularly sneaky. But we didn’t let it take away from our stay 🙂 can’t wait to come back!
