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.

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.
