We loved our meal and the atmosphere. I had the pasta dish and it was an amazing combination of flavors. Sirachia cauliflower was also really well done. We will definitely be back in the future.

Could a restaurant in West Virginia snag a Michelin star? This one is a candidate. We loved the food, the ambience, everything about the Guest House. We stayed at the resort, as well, and can recommend a weekend there.

I have never had a bad meal at The Guesthouse. The food is always flavorful and there is enough change to the menu that you can try something new almost every time you visit. The atmosphere is lively but not loud and it is the perfect setting for a date or a meet up with friends.

The meals at the Guest House at Lost River are special. Great menu selection, excellent service and wonderful flavors. The Chief seems to add special flavors or sauces to make a great taste. Service is always excellent. The proprietors, Jesse and Gary, want to make it a good experience and are open to any concerns or suggestions.

The Saturday afternoon Burger Lounge is a nice retreat on a cold winter afternoon. The burgers are gourmet, the drinks are great, and the service is impeccable, meeting strict covid protocols. Well done all around. I'll be back for sure.

During these trying COVID times owners Jessie and Gary ensure masking and social distancing quidelines are in place. We felt very comfortable in a great dining room with a baby grand piano playing which made for fine ambiance. The entire meal from our appetizer to desert was very very good. Great atmosphere, service and dining experience. Definitely planning on making future reservations at the Guest House in Lost River. * Stars!

We loved the hosts and hostesses here. So thoughtful and lovely. Food was fantastic, drinks were super creative. Masks abounded! We were only one of three tables total, and everyone was very respectful. The Wagyu burgers were amazing, and they very kindly made my toddle a grilled cheese not on the menu.

My wife and I went to the Guest House for lunch. Fantastic as always - cocktails, meal, wait staff, and ambiance - impeccable. On par with anything in a big city but, thankfully, is nestled in the mountains of the Lost River Valley. Will be returning often.

We made reservations for 6:15 and were seated promptly. Wait staff was attentive, friendly and efficient. Our food was luscious and portions were generous. We will definitely go back. Be sure to bring a flashlight to find your car after the sun sets, or be sure your smartphone is charged so you can use the torch.
