A SENSE OF PLACE

EXPLORE RIVER MOUNTAIN

Resting on 150 acres of nature, River Mountain offers something for everyone -- a good time to connect with your crew, adventures in nature right out your front door, and inspiring spaces to sit back and relax. River Mountain is more than just an overnight, it is a total experience and your journey!

Acknowledgement

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 Indigenous 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 formerly enslaved peoples who died traveling the route to freedom.

Meals + Dining

Stress free! River Mountain's Graze Kitchen provides breakfast, lunch, and dinner daily for our guests. Relax in the warm, welcoming atmosphere of the log cabin or take your meal to another scenic setting at River Mountain. All meals are prepared fresh and packaged "to go", for your convenience.

To avoid unnecessary waste and impact on our environment, we ask all guests to place meal orders prior to their stay, 24 hours in advance. Please visit our "Guest Guide" to order our seasonal meals prior to your stay with us.

Gathering Spaces

Main Lodge

The Main Lodge is our central point for living well - sunlight soaked guest rooms, panoramic yoga studio, guest kitchenette, conference meeting room, and lobby lounge area.

"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.

Greenhouse

Our latest addition at River Mountain -- the greenhouse is a stunning space with natural light letting the outdoors in. Climate controlled and under shelter, the greenhouse is an inspiring space for yoga retreats, group dining, and winter weddings.

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.
