The Independent Traveler
It's Your Journey
From remote work to active adventure to relaxing outside, it's up to you. Book an extended staycation, weekend trip, or working week at River Mountain.
Our grand opening is on September 3rd! Come join us as the leaves begin turning colors in Black Valley.
River Mountain offers gorgeous coworking spaces and true work-life balance. We have all the amenities of the office, balanced with morning yoga, afternoon hikes, and evening sunsets.
Signature experiences are a collection of our favorite experiences. They highlight the character of the land, the culture of the region, and our own personality. Signature experiences are typically a daily occurrence and available to all guests.
Near D.C., Baltimore & Pittsburgh -- Yet a World Away
River Mountain is located between Bedford, Pennsylvania, and Cumberland, Maryland, in the heart of the Allegheny Mountains. We're about two hours from Washington D.C., Baltimore, and Pittsburgh -- perfect for a road trip or weekend getaway.
SPACES & PLACES
Our spaces are inspirational and creative -- some historic, some modern. Hang out in our renovated 1860 Mennonite barn, work remotely in Warrior's Tipi, chill in the hammock hideaway, find your 'om' on our creekside yoga platform, and toast the sunset overlooking Dewey's pond.
Farm to Table
Our kitchen takes advantage of a variety of local and organic ingredients raised by our region’s farmers. Guests enjoy the best of the season with our grab and go provisions, ready for wherever the day may lead you.
This endeavor started a couple years back. We caught ourselves spending too much time at the office and not enough time doing what we love -- being outdoors doing cool things with cool people. Our team is here to deliver a great experience -- comfortable, safe, secure, helpful, welcoming, and unforgettable. We look forward to your visit and hope River Mountain becomes a second home for you, just like it has for us.
