Learn about The Lost River Company

Over a decade ago, Ted and Toni Harvey had a vision for a venture that combined their life’s work with their passion for people and their stories.  A vision that brought to life their fascination with intricate detail, design, and building. A vision that allowed them to help establish and shape a community while helping others and giving back to that very community. 


In 2005, the Harvey's chose to lay down more permanent roots in Lost River, West Virginia, where they had a weekend home for many years. They purchased The Inn at Lost River and The Lost River General Store, a historic property.

In 2006, the Harveys brought their vision to life and launched The Lost River Company. Today, The Lost River Company operates The Lost River General Store, The Inn at Lost River. According to both Ted and Toni, the mission is simple -- "to deliver an exceptional experience in absolutely everything that we do." "We're a small business with big values."


The Lost River Company has received numerous awards and recognitions including 101 Unique Places to Dine in West Virginia, Hardy County Business of the Year, Trip Advisor Award of Excellence and features in publications such as WVLiving and The State Journal.
