Outright Vermont (Outright) was founded in 1989 following the release of a 1988 national youth risk survey showing that gay and lesbian youth in particular had very high rates of depression and suicide.

Guest Reviews

Be Ravished by Beauty and Comfort

I first experienced Frog Meadow in November 2012. Frog Meadow is one of those rare abodes you will return to -when not in person – within your deepest memory and lucid dreams. It’s a place – and time – of walking in beauty, and immersing yourself – and being seduced – into the warm waters of hospitality, friendship and camaraderie. Privacy if and when you choose.

First, there is the land, the landscape and the view: You will drink it all in like a fine sensual Barbera wine from northern Italy. And then there is the being so generously welcomed and pampered by both remarkable innkeepers and hosts, Dave and Scott. Divine guys. Seriously Divine. Go for the opportunity to meet and establish connection with other guests in such a haven. Heaven.

Yes, there are those perfect amenities: the lovely house and home, the bountiful Vermont country breakfasts, the wood fired hot tub under the stars,the gym, the comfortable and handsome accommodations (The Brook Cottage located away from the main house in the woods like a Thai Spirit House is my choice),sublime common rooms, and the exquisite gardens.

Savor, Indulge, Invite, Inhale. Touch. All. Be ravished by beauty and comfort.

Frog Meadow is not only a place to live fully in every moment, it is a state of mind to take home with you until you return again.

Note: Check out all the special events, as well. I highly recommend the seasonal spring or fall work camp, a remarkable and intimate experience of solidarity. Mine in Autumn 2012 was unforgettable. Serious work, fun and fellowship.
