Lost River B&B is comfort made simple in the slow pace of the valley.  See views of the valley from your private rooms with a continental breakfast in their country dining room.  Feel free to relax on the screened porch with the gentle flow of a southern breeze, or spend a calm evening in a rocking chair sitting next to a wood burning fireplace.
