I never put much stock in “being at the right place at the right time” but feeling differently this year. Eternally grateful for these women and their stories; our “fireside” chats; lazy meals in the cabin; and of course yoga. ...

River Mountain Digital Wellness Citizenship and Outdoor Adventure Camp Retreat

May 2021


They take such thoughtful care of everything! River Mountain is a gem. I love true roughing it camping so I wondered if this might not do for me. I was wonderfully proven wrong! To head into the woods without having to think much about food or gear is incredible! The food was excellent, plentiful, and easily gotten. The location is pure magic - woods, a creek, a meadow - so you can see stars, hear tons of birds, take great hikes. and listen to a burbling stream. The staff were terrific - present, resourceful, helpful, then vanishing like magic! It’s complete luxury to have your own bathroom regardless of what style of accommodation you choose plus spotless, private, hot showers! Amazing! Even in the rain this was a tonic - so relaxing and super fun. I can’t wait to go again!

This place is like a meditation hideaway, a nature retreat and an oasis from the noise of life. Such a utopia.....i think those are the best ways to describe this place. My fiance and I love it so much we are making it a regular getaway. The caretakers of property and guests make you feel like family and welcome you with open arms. 10star rating on our part!

Just left and had to write a review right away! What a fantastic getaway for the family. Location is unbelievable, think Nottingham first meets hunger games meets a sci-fi wonderland. We rented a full cabin so we had plenty of space and beds, but next time coming back for the tipis which looked super cool. The team was so nice, fun and helpful. Made us feel at home in the forest. And the BBQ grilling was perfect. Highly recommend all around!

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. Our property is secluded and remote, yet easily accessible from the city.

Your Hosts

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.
