Guest Reviews

Three Times and Counting!

This was my third consecutive year visiting Frog Meadow Farm. I feared I would find this visit routine and boring, but to my surprise the hosts, Dave and Scott, made my time as exceptional as ever.

The accommodations are immaculate.Being a neat freak, I have yet to find a problem with any aspect of this B&B. Dave whips up a delicious and filling breakfast each morning with fresh ingredients many from their own garden. The setting is tranquil and is perfect for the traveler who wants to clear his mind, relax by the hot tub or by the pond and commune with nature.

Scott and Dave are accessible and will provide information regarding the sites and sound of Newfane,the surrounding area and where to get a good dinner in the evening. My favorite is the Four Columns Inn Restaurant. Its a little expensive, but it’s my vacation and I don’t mind splurging a little.

And lastly, Dave’s massages will highlight your stay. If you visit, be sure to schedule a massage appointment…you won’t regret it!!

Folks this is a first-class establishment and well worth taking a trip to Newfane. I’m already planning next year’s visit, Number 4!!
