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 150 acre campus stretches across Black Valley at the base of Tussey Mountain, along the banks of Sweet Root Creek.


Our spaces are inspirational and creative - some historic, some modern. Hang out in our renovated 1860 mennonite barn, create 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 during community dinners in the historic Powell Log Cabin or with our grab-and-go provisions.


Our journey is your journey. Follow along with the latest progress updates and adventures at River Mountain. If you have ideas or want to see something specific at River Mountain - let us know! This is your outpost too.

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.
