Frog Meadow’s hot tub is heated by hardwood logs harvested from the surrounding woods.

Frog Meadow’s 750-gallon wood-fired hot tub is open year-round, and is typically heated to approximately 104 degrees. The tub is constructed of aromatic cedar from the pacific northwest, and is warmed by hardwood logs harvested from Frog Meadow’s surrounding forests.

The tub’s built-in eco-friendly wood stove emits a distinctive “mini campfire” aroma which you might notice when you first arrive at Frog Meadow. There are no noisy pumps or jets, just 48-inches deep, soothing warm water so you can sit fully upright and relax among the peace and quiet.

Frog Meadow’s hot tub is the ideal way to relax, release muscle aches, stiffness, pains and renew your body and soul after a workout, a hike, or a trip to nearby Rock River. It’s also a great way to unwind immediately before or after a massage with Dave.

Some of our guests make it a habit to take a soak immediately before bedtime (Scott refers to this benignly as “paying your sleep insurance premiums”) and some of our guests enjoy “taking the waters” with a morning cup of coffee first thing in the morning!

Frog Meadow’s Hot Tub is open 7 days a week, 12 month a year!

Frog Meadow’s Hot Tub is open for your relaxation 7 days a week, 12 month a year!

The hot tub is located on the west side of the Main House, surrounded by native stonework, annual and perennial gardens and has wonderful late day sunlight. In spring, summer and fall the nearby hospitality cabana is where you’ll find towels for use with the hot tub & swimming pond, as well as a “community fridge” (for storing guest snacks and beverages) and barware.

Typically at the end of most days the patio area by the hot tub is where guests gather for an informal happy hour, hot tub soak, snacks and to catch up on the day’s events prior to heading out together or separately for evening meal.

Immediately next to the hot tub is a handmade, copper hot-and-cold outdoor shower with an oversize shower head that is perfect for rinsing off before and after your soak.

The outdoor shower is stocked with our signature Frog Meadow all-natural soaps, shampoos and moisturizing bodycare products for you to sample and enjoy.

The hot tub is open from 7am to 11pm during spring/summer/fall and from 7am to 10pm during winter months.

A Week’s Worth of Fun and Relaxation in Two Days

I want to thank you for another great couple of days at Frog Meadow. On the ride back home, we kept talking about all the wonderful experiences we had over the weekend….I’m still having quite a bit of afterglow as I write this!   Here is what we were able to pack into two days up on the hill at Frog Meadow:

  • The Gallery Walk in Brattleboro on Friday night and seeing some great art, some fun art and some question marks that made us think…
  • Dinner and martinis at Fireworks (I had the fig, prosciutto and Gorgonzola pizza and Ron had the plank-grilled salmon)…
  • Hot tubbing and cocktails with new friends…
  • Breakfast of apple buckwheat waffles and bacon…
  • Some insight into the devastation and personal impact of Hurricane Irene while driving up the Rock River Valley…
  • Pressing cider with local families and new friends — a very memorable experience…
  • Dinner at The Marina overlooking the West River at sunset…
  • Delicious french toast and sausage breakfast…
  • The Newfane Heritage Festival (I picked up some engraved slate coasters that I’m using as I write this)…
  • A visit to Dutton’s Farm Stand and seeing how they make cider…
  • The Dummerston Apple Pie Festival (complete with about 500 bikers and a trip across one of Vermont’s signature covered bridges)…
  • Laying in the sun and taking an outdoor shower surrounded by spider lilies, scented with the familiar and unique balsam and cedar “Lumberjack” fragrance of your organic soaps…
  • Watching the trees change color…
  • Visiting the Grafton Cheese store for yummy goodies on the way out…
  • Little traffic and a quick ride home…

Beyond sharing your wonderful world with us this past weekend, I want to thank you for all your warmth, consideration and hospitality during this past summer’s many visits to Frog Meadow. You guys and Frog Meadow have a very special place in my heart – and I want to say thank you for that.

Until I return next, please keep my seat on the patio in a sunny place!
