Rooms are held by deposit only. We will be happy to hold a room for 24 hours after your first email inquiry until you are able to reach us by phone with your credit card information. After 24 hours the room may be booked to another party unless we hear from you. Humans and emails are not infallible. Spam filters and other issues can interfere with the delivery of emails. If you do not get a response to your email within 24 hours please call 877-365-7242 to make your reservation. Rooms are not booked until you receive a response from us.
Please note that we do not give refunds for bad weather, i.e. rainy weekends or snow storms. In the case of a winter storm making travel dangerous or impossible on the day of your arrival we will be happy to issue a credit good for another stay or Frog Meadow merchandise.
There is ordinarily a two-night minimum stay. There is a three-night minimum stay on 4th of July Weekend, Labor Day, Columbus Day, Christmas and New Years weekends as well as Martin Luther King and President’s weekends.
Any “orphaned nights” are available as a one-night booking. An orphaned night is (for example) when a Tuesday/Wednesday is booked and a Friday/Saturday is booked, the resulting Thursday is an an orphaned night.
In addition, we will occasionally consider one-night bookings by request. Please call or email us.
We regret that we cannot welcome your pet here at Frog Meadow. While we love those four legged furry creatures (the two legged variety are most welcome!) We have made this decision for the comfort of all our guests.
There is a wonderful home-like kennel less than half a mile from Frog Meadow. Please contact Jackie Toth of Full Stride Kennels at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 802-365-4540 for more information.
Massage Cancellation Policy
There is a minimum 24 hour cancellation policy for massages. Those making cancellations less than 24 hours prior to the booked session will be charged the full amount of the booked time.
Check-in and Check-out
Check in time is 3:00 PM. Depending on occupancy we will do our best to accommodate early arrivals. You are always welcome to drop off your bags until your room is ready.
Check ins later than 9:00PM are possible by prior arrangement only. Please let us know when making your reservation if you will be arriving later than 9:00PM
Check out time is 11:00 AM. If no one is arriving in your room the day you are checking out it may be possible extend check out time depending on staffing.
Frog Meadow does not have a liquor license so we are BYOB. Please feel free to bring an adult beverage of your choice to enjoy during your stay.
We do not offer day passes. If you would like to schedule a massage, access to the gym and/or hot tub is available for an additional $20 per-person fee. Please click here for further information.
Unfortunately we are not at all wheelchair accessible. There are multiple steps to enter the Main House and other buildings and none of our rooms are on the first floor. We built Frog Meadow as our home in 1995 and never considered that we might one day be a B&B, otherwise we certainly would have done things differently.
We do not offer Kitchen Privileges owing to licensing and insurance compliance. During summer season, there is a hospitality cabana with fridge/freezer, ice and barware exclusively for guest use. The Deluxe Barn Suite has a full kitchenette year-round, as well as a gas BBQ for use during summer season.
We do not offer camping or campsites although there is a wonderful men-only campground nearby in Hinsdale, NH called MountainSide owned by two wonderful guys named David & Michael. You can find out more about camping at MountainSide here.
