If you need a break from everything, go off-grid, focus on relaxing – and possibly enjoy a good whiskey – this would be a pretty good way to do it!
The Lost Whiskey Concrete Cabin is a 160-square-foot piece of art perched on a mountainside along the Appalachian Trail. It’s made of raw pre-cast concrete panels and together with the wild lands surrounding the cabin, it has a rustic yet modern aesthetic feel.
Inside you’ll find a single room with a murphy bed and a sitting area that surrounds a wood-burning stove. The rustic cabin also features a shower and composite toilet. Large glazed panels create the illusion of space and make it possible to enjoy the spectacular view of the Appalachian Trail between Springer Mountain in Georgia and Mount Katahdin in Maine – the world’s longest hiking trail.

If you step outside through the glass doors the terrain extents and offers an area that features a small fire pit, a hot tub and more stunning Virginia wilderness landscape.
“We are a different kind of a design-build firm – misfits of sorts. We like things old and natural: wood, steel, people, buildings, landscapes, and hell any good story. We take these fabrics and weave them into something that is familiar yet new, something that will inspire, simplify and with any luck bring you a smile. We like places and pieces that are smaller, encourage conversation, cultivate historical connections, stimulate thought, and disrupt the status quo. We like things that uplift and unite, that help you break bread, drink coffee or enjoy a whiskey together. We have sawdust on our pants, mud on our boots and a real passion for projects with a soul, a story and a sustainable life cycle.”
