Blue Mountain Center is a non-profit organization based in a turn-of-the-century Adirondack lodge on a pristine 1600-acre estate.
Life at BMC 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 work in adjacent studios. Breakfast and dinner are served in the dining room. Linens and laundry facilities are provided.
Blue Mountain Center's amenities—tennis court, canoes, lakefront access, and hiking trails—together with the surrounding wilderness, promise even the most diligent worker diversion and relaxation.
The telephone is considered something of an outsider at BMC. There is a phone available for guests to use, as well as a public computer with internet access and several USB cables for laptop connection. Cell phones are not welcome.
