The Center is a turn-of-the century Adirondack lodge in a pristine and peaceful setting of woods, lakes and mountains.
Life at Blue Mountain Center is organized to maintain privacy and quiet. The atmosphere is informal and cooperative. Writers are lodged in individual bedroom/studies in the Main House or the Grey Cottage; visual artists and composers have separate studios. Breakfast and dinner are served in the dining room. Linens and laundry facilities are provided.
The amenities of the Center, including a tennis court, lakes, boats and hiking trails, promise even the most diligent worker diversion and relaxation.
The telephone is considered something of an outsider at the Center. There is a phone for guests' use, as well as a computer with email access and a laptop connection. To foster serenity, TV and cellular phones are not welcome. Read Reflections on the Cell Phone Policy by former Resident Rob Nixon
