5.0/5.0 (All Reviews)
If you are looking to get off the "hamster wheel" and ground yourself in nature with 5-star amenities, this is your place. It's off the "beaten path" but still reasonably accessible from all tri- state major cities (Baltimore, New York and Pittsburgh). Tired of listening to planes, trains and automobiles? I am not sorry I changed it up to listen to the birds and the bees at River Mountain. The property supports such a dynamic ecosystem. River Mountain is the epitome of the word "glamp". It offers the essence of camping (getting back to nature and unplugging) while at the same time providing the comforts of home (comfortable beds and amazing food). Customer service is one of their strengths. You're even greeted by resident chickens "Ding" and "Dong". I WILL be going back!
What can you expect? This place was amazing from top to bottom. The staff was there when you needed them for just about anything you could want or need, but they also were not in your face to the point you couldnt enjoy the scenery and just relax. If you needed them you could text them or even just use the provided walkie talkie. And who doesnt want to stay in a Tipi? What a unique stay, plus you dont have to bring anything. The beds have sheets and pillows. If its cold there is a pellet stove, or if its hot they have fans. The firewood is stocked for you right on your site and there is a charcoal grill if you want to cook up some food.. Happy Hour - Beer and Sangria was fantastic, as were the views! The food options were amazing. Everything we ate was fantastic. You could order a meal that they cook and have it ready for pick up in the Cabin, or you could order a meal kit and cook on the charcoal grill right at your campsite. We did both, and of course finished the night with a smores kit. Yum! The trails, the creek, the mountains, and the hamock hideaways. There is no need to go anywhere else, you can really just stay here, relax and enjoy the outdoors. But if you do want to go offsite you are right by Buchanan State Forest which also has many hiking trails! This Staff is A+ and we will definitely be back!
