Guest Reviews

Perfect Early Fall Long Weekend!

My fiancé and I stayed 3 nights and 4 days at Frog Meadow for a Gay-Tantra workshop weekend. Our drive from Syracuse, NY was easy and exciting as we got to drive up the mountains to our accommodations. We were greeted in the driveway by a warm, smiling face (Jay) and he helped us park and get our luggage moved in. The setting was beautiful, lush gardens, beautiful well kept home, smoking wood fired hot tub, tree swing, swimming pond and majestic mountains in the backdrop. Scott, one of the extremely friendly owners, met us at the door, gave us the tour while his husband Dave filled the home with the great smell of dinner to come. We stayed in the largest/nicest room as we booked early, the Frog Meadow Suite. Comfortable king size bed, large closets, plenty of room for our belongings, mini fridge, large bathroom with a walk in-shower and 2-man jaccuzzi tub.

Our Gay-Tantra workshop with Armin Heining from Berlin, Germany was great! It was the perfect workshop to help my fiancé and I reconnect and grow deeper in our relationship. The other participants were friendly and had a wide range of ages. We connected with another couple quickly and really enjoyed our time with them during our workshop. The group exercises and meditations were helpful to connect with everyone and we had time for just my fiancé and I to connect as well. I’d highly recommend Armin’s workshops as he caters to couples and singles alike in a fun group environment.

The accommodations were great, very peaceful, beautiful and serene. The wood-fired hot tub was also great and a good way to relax from the day. The grounds are well kept with plenty of areas to explore: swimming pond, hiking trails, beehives, tree swing, hammock, etc. The meals were very, very good…Dave is the cook and Scott helps him in the kitchen. The other staff were helpful and friendly. All the food is locally sourced and prepared with love. We enjoyed amazing fresh salads, soups, fruit, yogurt, granola, salmon, chicken, turkey chili and the fresh bread and desserts were a highlight. I am on a Keto diet and the owners did everything they could to accommodate my special requests and I never felt like an inconvenience. 

Upon checkout Scott helped us with some local items (honey, cheese, jam) we purchased from their shop. We gave both owners a hug goodbye and a promise to return. We highly recommend visiting!
