Guest Reviews

A Beautiful Place for Bay/Bi Men in the Vermont Countryside!

We had a lovely weekend at the Frog Meadow Farm bed and breakfast. The location is in Newfane Vermont, with the bed and breakfast located in the middle of nowhere up some hilly Vermont roads.

The place itself is extremely lovely and well taken care of with beautiful well-maintained gardens around the property. We loved our spacious suite room with a massive comfortable bed, huge bathroom with 2 person jetted tub and large walk in shower. The house itself feels very rustic/country but with modern amenities. Everything was spotlessly clean and in great condition. The wood fired hot tub was also amazing. It was perfect for a balmy September night and we socialized and drank beers with the other guests on our first night.

One of my favorite things was the smell of the hot tub’s wood stove coming into our windows at night when we were sleeping. The smell reminded me of camping with my parents as a kid, which sounds really silly, but it was really nice. Our other favorite part of our stay was just sitting outside on the reclining chairs by the pond, drinking local ciders and just relaxing and watching the nature around us. It was very peaceful and quiet and perfect for just chilling and reading a book.

Men of all ages and body types were at Frog Meadow, including single men and couples. Clothes are optional so you are gonna see some stuff. I didn’t feel pressured to be naked, and as a bigger guy, I didn’t get the vibe that there would be judgement either way.

The guests we met were very nice and the hosts and the staff members were all very friendly and welcoming. Newfane Vermont is also a cute little town and has several tasty places to eat nearby, with The Eatery being our favorite place for a nice date night out. There is also a little farm store nearby that carries a very interesting selection of Vermont craft beers and ciders. Keep in mind that Frog Meadow is the host’s home as well. While you can be as social or not as social with people as you want here, you’ll likely be conversing with the other guests and seeing the hosts living their lives. So just keep that in mind when you book here.

Coffee, tea and water is available at all times and the breakfasts were freshly prepared and very good. I also loved the high end shower and bathing products provided that are specifically made for Frog Meadow Farm. There are also a few different and creative lodging options for guests including a barn suite and two little cottages a bit further away from the main house for the ultimate in privacy.

Frog Meadow was a classy, beautifully maintained, friendly, rustic and peaceful getaway with some creative lodging options for gay men and we would love to bring our friends with us next time we visit. If you’re looking to get away to the countryside for a relaxing little gay getaway, I highly recommend this place!
