summer pond floating

There are several oversize inner tubes for floating in the pond, day or night.

 

Frog Meadow’s swimming pond is 8 to 12 feet deep and fed by deep springs and the brook, keeping its water cool, fresh and clean. Complete with stone steps for easy entrance and exit, the swimming pond was designed so that Scott (an amateur competitive swimmer and triathlete) could easily do his measured 25-yard lap swim training routine, flip turns and all – and you can too! There are several oversize inner tubes for floating in the pond, day or night.

Immediately next to the pond is a private, grassy sunbathing area complete with chaise lounge chairs for wiling away the afternoon, visiting with other guests, or catching a post-swim nap. This same warm, grassy area is where morning yoga sessions are held during our frequent Yoga & Wellness weekends!

There’s a super-comfy two-man hammock next to the pond with a spectacular sweeping view of the pond, meadow, apple orchard and gardens…the perfect place for an afternoon snuggle and/or nap!

In the area surrounding the pond you’ll find wild blackberries for picking, as well as water irises and zebra grass!

A note to visiting city folks: Not to worry about snakes, snails, turtles, leaches or other nasty critters! The wildlife in the swimming pond is limited to frogs, tadpoles and the occasional crayfish.

According to returning guest Matthew from Queens NY…

I think my favorite moment happened Friday night:  Floating on an inner tube in the pond and watching the stars above was a magical moment I won’t soon forget! “

A Delight if you Value Friendship and a Quiet Pace

We were fortunate to have discovered this B&B when we were looking for massages during a week’s stay at a property near Brattleboro with ten of our best ‘couple’ friends. Three years later we came back as a couple and thoroughly enjoyed the beauty of this place…mountain views, gardens, hiking and swimming in the spring-fed pond. It was glorious.

The eight other guests were just the right number to strike up interesting conversations at the breakfast table or in the hot tub. Scott and Dave were great hosts who were very gentle and helpful, passionate about this place, its history and what it has to offer…from nude sunbathing along a stretch of Rock River to the fine dining choices all around this rural setting.

All in all, a place worth returning to!
