Seriously Remote Work

Seriously Remote Work

The Covid-19 pandemic has impacted every aspect of the American economy and workforce. Out of nowhere, we're all suddenly dealing with titanic changes in how we go about our workday - perhaps none bigger than the new realities of remote work. For many of us, this reality isn't going away any time soon and is here to stay.

According to a River Mountain survey of 400 employees in the DC area, pre-Covid 48% of workers had never worked from home, while 52% of employees worked from home at least one day per week. Post-Covid, those numbers fell and jumped sharply to 20% and 80% respectively. Those numbers are staggering

The shift to working from home has provided a new opportunity for many workers - to work from anywhere. River Mountain was designed for individuals looking to escape the solitude of the home office and re-energize their workday routine in the great outdoors. Below are the ways River Mountain delivers for workers looking to change it up and break the monotony.

Thoughtful Architectural Design

A productive workday starts with a good night's sleep. River Mountain's circadian rhythm cabins were designed to align with the body’s natural clock -- fall asleep to the stars at night, wake to natural light in the morning, and be more productive.

A Work-Play Outpost

River Mountain has all the amenities of a traditional coworking space - modern workspaces, fresh coffee all day, inspiring communal spaces, lockable storage - you know the list. But that's not our best amenity. Our best amenity is endless access to the outdoors. Everyone feels better with their feet in the water and the sun on their face. So what if access to nature was combined with first-class work amenities? How much happier and more productive would we be? At River Mountain, we think a lot.

First Class Service

Thoughtful spaces and first-class work amenities make us a remote work destination, but our team's approach to remote work service puts us over the top. Our team understands remote work. Have a special food request? Stephanie and our kitchen have you covered. Need us to get something to FedEx quickly? Toby is jumpin in the truck. Need extra privacy for that super important call? Liz knows the perfect spot.

If you have questions about our remote work at River Mountain, don't hesitate to reach out. We're here to answer any questions or to help you book a two night stay, a weeklong trip, or an extended stay.
