Main Lodge Lounge

Remote work, watch the game on TV, or meet up with others for a card game -- our gorgeous lounge offers plenty of natural light with views out to the commons and up to Warrior Ridge.

"Big Red" Barn

Our restored mid 19th-century Mennonite barn is the ideal gathering space. From morning yoga, evening ping-pong, and company events, "Big Red" is the perfect combination of hand-crafted beauty in an updated space.

Historic Log Cabin

The restored 1807 historic log cabin serves as our dining hall and breakfast area. The hand-hewn timber, the handcrafted community tables, the crackle of the old fireplace - this is a place to settle in for the evening.

Yoga Platforms

Our yoga platforms rest at the base of Warrior Ridge, along Sweet Root Creek, and look out to Tussey Mountain. Enjoy a class led by River Mountain facilitators or do your own thing on these platforms nestled in Black Valley.

History

Warrior Path

Running parallel to River Mountain's eastern ridge is Warriors Path, the great Iroquois Indian highway from Six Nations country, New York, to the Catawba country in the Carolinas. The historic path along Sweet Root Creek was one of the longest and most heavily traveled land routes in eastern North America, connecting Indian peoples over hundreds of miles.

The Underground Railroad

Black Valley was an active route along the Underground Railroad. Local histories principally credit four, free black residents with leading the aid network in this area: Rev. John Fidler, Elias Rouse, Joseph Crawley, and James Graham. Just to the south of the River Mountain property are 13 unmarked graves of slaves who died traveling the route to freedom.

Location

River Mountain is 2 hours from Washington D.C., the DMV area, Baltimore, and Pittsburgh. We are three hours from Philadelphia and 5 hours from New York City. We're 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. Find us at 3600 Black Valley Road, Everett, PA 15537.
