I did the following, you might not need to do it all:
Create mount dir and chown it to the user who needs to access it.
Add the following line to fstab:
sshfs#USERNAME@SERVER:/PATH /mnt/MOUNTPOINT fuse defaults,noauto,user,uid=mike,gid=mike,allow_other,reconnect,transform_symlinks 0 0
For automated mounts add ssh keys.
