Finding the Magic!

After numerous visits to Frog Meadow Farm (FMF) I have wondered why I, like so many others, return to this retreat of peace and solitude, especially when there are so many alternatives afforded me throughout the United States and around the world. I was determined to find the reason for my obsession with FMF.

Maybe the secret can be surmised by the two guests who sought refuge at the resort and stayed in the Barn Suite during a workshop they attended that required extensive homework and concentration after their daily sessions. Although sightings of the two were few and far between, when they did appear usually to take a relaxing dip in the hot tub or at breakfast, one could not have found two more amicable men. In fact, one guest commented that after numerous visits to FMF, he had yet to encounter anyone disagreeable or unpleasant which says a lot about the magical affect of the place, the hosts and the ambience one will encounter upon arrival.

Perhaps, the answer for my obsession can be found by a younger guest who was enchanted by the peace and mystery that the night brought. The evening was complete with fireflies that complimented the illuminated starlit sky. His joy and exuberance sparked the curiosity of the other guests that evening and eventually we all joined him in his celebration of life. Once Dave fired up a campfire, we all experienced a similar excitement to the point that, out of the blue marshmallows appeared, and the joy of youth touched all assembled!

However for me, I have concluded that it’s the simple presence of the many frogs that create my obsession. It seems as I drive up Newfane Hill Road, their siren’s call commands my vehicle up the hill. Their dissonant croaking takes me through my day of relaxation and reading and at night their audile presence lulls me to sleep.

I guess everyone who visits FMF will find something special that will enhance their visit. Whether it’s the friendly encounters, the attentive hospitality, the peaceful surroundings, the meticulously prepared and delicious breakfast, the natural ambience of the scenery or just the frogs.

Whatever the reason, it will give them ample justification to return and find their own personal magic!
