Our Story

In 2020, in the middle of COVID, our founder was determined to find some comfort for her mom, Mary Ann, who had Alzheimers Disease. She wanted her to feel safe and be surrounded by beauty. Together, they found a magical location near the town of Woodstock, NY - peaceful, immersed in nature, with a spectacular view of the Catskill mountains. Mary Ann loved the Mountain House and today it celebrates her generous spirit in the form of the Swimming Hole Foundation, a  welcoming place, warmed by convivial and creative people coming together to share their talent, their good will and  their their love of humanity.


The Advisory Board members are the heart and soul of the Swimming Hole.
