On-Site Massage

Gay Massage Frog Meadow New England's Best All Male Gay Resort in Southern VermontMale touch is a powerful and healing gift!

Dave’s massage training combined with his innate intuitive nature uniquely qualifies him for this work. Dave’s philosophy is that the body, mind, and spirit are intricately intertwined components of the whole being. If any one part is out of alignment all three suffer. By assisting in bringing the body into balance, the mind and spirit benefit as well.

Dave honors all those who arrive on his table with an individual treatment plan based on input from the client and what he feels with his hands when the work begins.

Wood-Fired Hot Tub (open year-round!)

Frog Meadow Hot Tub New England's Best All Male Gay Resort in Southern Vermont

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 the nearby Rock River gay swimming beach. It’s also a great way to unwind immediately before or after a massage with Dave.

Spring-Fed Swimming Pond (spring, summer & fall)

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!

Guest Reviews

Relaxing Serenity

Our stay was nothing but utter relaxation and pampering. Each morning started with a delicious home cooked breakfast. The barn suite my husband and I stayed in was huge and very well put together.

I would highly recommend this place to any gay men or gay couples (of all ages) who are looking to get away for some R&R.
