Escape to Open Space + Mountain Air

River Mountain Retreat - midnight logo
Get Away & Be Well
Distanced by nature, River Mountain is a modern oasis in the great outdoors. Just a few hours from Washington D.C., we are the perfect escape from the city.
Modern, Minimalist, Luxury


Designed by award-winning architecture firm, GWWO, our accommodations are a destination in and of themselves. Our thoughtfully crafted glamping pods blend modern amenities, the comforts of home, and the beauty of the outdoors -- this is glamping.

Accommodation Types

Glamping POds

Our glamping pods are ideal for solo travelers or couples. With a twin or queen-size bed, think of this private pod as your own small oasis inside a cabin.

Main Lodge Rooms

Our main lodge rooms are designed for close family or friends. With space for up to four guests, it's the mountain escape you crave.

Private Cabins

Our full private cabins offer plenty of space for your next family or friend group getaway. Private cabins feature 12 pods for up to 12 guests.

Great Outdoors

Resting on 150 acres, River Mountain is bordered by Sweet Root Creek, Warrior Ridge and Tussey Mountain. Adjacent to Buchanan State Forest and the Pennsylvania Mid State Trail, we offer endless access to the outdoors.

Rise and shine with the sun as it moves across Black Valley. Enjoy complimentary coffee with a view from our restored, historic log cabin.
Sunset Happy Hours

S'mores by the Fire
We'll start the fire and bring the s'mores! Sit back, relax, and get cozy by the fire.

Group Getaways

Just two hours from Washington D.C., Baltimore, and Pittsburgh, River Mountain is a group destination. Our 12-person private cabins are ideal for parents with remote learners, friend staycations, and family getaways. Utilize our private gathering spaces for group activities during your stay.

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.
