Detail from the Horseshoe Garden to the west of the Main House

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. We have identified over 100 different varieties of birds at Frog Meadow (including Tuvu, Tuti, Robin, Red-Eyed Vireo, Cedar Waxwing, Indigo Bunting, Chestnut-Sided Warbler, Tru Swallow, Thrush, Hawk, Chickadee, Crow, Raven, Goldfinch, Wren, Phoebe, Nuthatch, Hairy Woodpecker, Song Sparrow, Yellowthroat, Chimmney Swift, Pewee, Overbird, Chipping Sparrow, Winter Wren)!

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.

Magical 3 Days!

I travel a lot, both in the US and all over the world. When I plan a trip I look for accommodation well within the 4-5 star range, especially outside of the country or an area that might be tricky to navigate. When I heard about Frog Meadow, what appealed to me was the fact that it is a rustic, mountain / wooded retreat. And that’s what I wanted …. rustic relaxation. They offer some suites w/ private baths – and some rooms and cottages that have a shared bath (perfect if you are traveling with friends).

I chose what they call The Brook Cottage. Set away from the main house, next to a babbling brook, this magical little cabin features a queen bed, electricity with ceiling fan and air conditioning (I didn’t need it at the end of June – the property sits on top of a mountain and the entire cottage has screened windows that provide an amazing cross breeze).

Relaxing in this cottage surrounded by nature, is just transforming. I have not slept this good in months. Imagine the most comfy bed …. with great linen and blankets …. in an enchanted forest. I’m not kidding – it felt like that.

True, it does not have a bathroom. But I knew this and realized that I would be “Glamping” and that’s what this is!! The bathroom is located in the main house (which they show you during the tour when you arrive). It is spotlessly clean, and they offer big robes and lots of towels. This is a MENS retreat, so they jokingly suggest that in the night when you have to – just water the trees lol – otherwise the bathroom is there to use at all times. It worked out fine.

They have a wood fired hot tub … a swimming pond ….. patio to relax on and enjoy the evening. Also available is a beautiful great room / living room with cable tv if you want.

Then there is breakfast. Served in a large chefs kitchen / dining room combo and butlers pantry. Fresh fruits and granola and yogurt, fresh juice tea and coffee to start. They prepare a different hot breakfast every day featuring local ingredients. The food was awesome.

The hosts are a couple that built this property from scratch, and they love what they do. Attentive (but not bothersome). This is their home and they enjoy sharing it, and are so accommodating. ** I mentioned that I had spotty internet in the cottage…and they moved the routers right away to improve the signal etc (it worked great after that!). They could have easily shrugged and said it’s the woods – sorry….but they cared.

Frog Meadow is amazing and I can’t recommend it enough if you are looking for a quality, gay B&B. If you are looking for a fussy froo-froo boring hotel then go there. If you want rustic and comfortable glamping in a true Vermont paradise – then go to Frog Meadow!!
