Blue Mountain is convenient to both Washington, DC and Baltimore, MD – about 75 minutes total driving time – yet, after you arrive and settle in, you will feel like you have been transported to the middle of the forest. The secret is the 27 acre property, just a mile downhill to the Potomac and Shenandoah Rivers and the C & O Canal. 

Take a hike on the nearby Appalachian Trail or go next door for a horseback ride. Cozy up to one of the fireplaces or connect with Blue Mountain owner Beth Ehrhardt**, a licensed massage therapist, for some relaxing body work.

 Meals are home-cooked, organic and wonderful. If you have any special dietary needs or allergies, please let me know so I can inform the owner. This includes gluten-free, so the owner can prepare accordingly.


**Beth, the owner of the Blue Mountain Retreat Center, is a skilled massage therapist and will probably be available for a handful of massage bookings. We’ll place a sign-up sheet at the house. I believe she charges $85/hour and you can book during free times or maybe after lunch on Saturday if you let me know in advance.
