Guest Reviews

A special weekend I will not soon forget!

Having stayed at Frog Meadow before decided to register for special weekend with a 2-days “Heart-Centered Touch” massage workshop lead by Adam Brown.

In addition to learning all sorts of new massage skills, Adam spends time teaching about Taoism and other centering practices that were really helpful for me.

Definitely a soul-building workshop bonding with other men that was tremendous. It helped all of us be better people, more attentive partners, and refine the art of touch.

Frog Meadow’s amenities and gourmet meals provided by Chef Dave made it truly a special weekend I will not soon forget!
