Frog Meadow is located on the site of the Wheeler Farm, a 1700’s dairy farm and apple orchard that borders historic Newfane Village’s original mountaintop site atop Newfane Hill.

Our extensive perennial and annual gardens, varietal apple orchard, fruit and vegetable gardens are pollinated by our active beehives, butterflies, hummingbirds and bats who also call Frog Meadow their home.

In addition, owls, hawks, songbirds, wild turkeys, pileated woodpeckers, otters, deer, the occasional moose – and of course, our many species of frogs – share their wonderful habitat with our guests.

Explore Frog Meadow’s gardens and plantings by taking a walkabout tour or relaxing on one of our many stone benches, Adirondack chairs, chaise lounges or the hammock by the swimming pond.

In early June our royal violet bearded irises put on an amazing display in the apple orchard...

Delightful and Memorable

We’re now home and back to the daily grind…we wanted to take this opportunity to THANK YOU BOTH for a delightful stay and memorable marriage ceremony!

You have a beautiful home on spectacular grounds. We couldn’t have asked for a finer place to be married…and Dave’s breakfasts were delicious!

Again many thanks for a most memorable stay!
