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.

Guest Reviews

At Home with Friends

Vermont calls itself, and not without good reason, The Green Mountain State – there are many mountains and all of them are lush with color green. And in the middle of the green is Frog Meadow Farm. And the nickname “Oasis for Gay Men” is correct!

The Main House, which has three guest rooms, is surrounded by wonderful large gardens. There are two additional guest cottages in the gardens, but each far enough away from each other and from the Main House that you have the feeling of being alone in nature.

When you come to Frog Meadow Farm, you feel like you are coming home. The greeting from Scott, Dave or Jay is warm. The house exudes a pleasant coziness and tranquility, which is immediately transferred to everyone. It’s cozy without being plush. There is a lot to see but nothing is frivolous. Everything exudes a masculine calm that tells you: relax, breathe and be who you are. At breakfast at the large table, all guests sit together like at a family reunion, everyone talks to everyone and the food is very good and plentiful. Coffee and tea are available all day.

The central point of Frog Meadow is the wood-fired hot tub adjacent to the terrace. Everyone gathers here during the day, after trips in the area or the nearby Rock River Gay Beach, or after dinner in one of the surrounding restaurants. You chat, read or just look at the wonderful landscape! Everything relaxed and relaxed, like at home with good friends.

My husband, who has been here a few times previously and was very enthusiastic about it, wanted me to experience Frog Meadow Farm. And I have to say it was worth it. We will certainly not have been here for the last time and are already looking forward to the next time!
