Abode Mountain (Mt. Lebanon)

M

ount Lebanon has served as a sacred locus for seekers and explorers, stretching from the Native peoples to the Shakers and now to the Sufis. The mountain as sacred container has held many spiritual events and continues to be a spiritual home to groups and individuals.

In less than a thirty-minute walk uphill one may discover wildlife, winding streams, camping amenities, and trails atop this tranquil Taconic ridge where one understands how the Abode is “spiritual in nature.”

Our Mountain Camp is accessible from May through September. The Camp boasts sixteen private retreat huts, two long-house style cabins (40 beds), and tenting areas for accommodations. There are bathhouses, flush toilets, as well as outhouses. Meeting spaces include a large platform protected by a big-top tent, dining pavilions, an enclosed area with wood stove, and a large fire circle. The camp is an ideal destination for those seeking intimate, inclusive gatherings in the great outdoors.

Our Mountain Kitchen provides creative and nutritious meals with Abode farm-fresh vegetables and eggs in addition to gluten-free and vegetarian options.
