As a couple of New Yorkers, we find the need to flee the concrete every few weeks, and Frog Meadow has become one of our favorite escapes. The owners, Scott and Dave, have created a property for gay men that perfectly balances rustic simplicity with high-end accommodations.

The B&B sits on a beautifully landscaped plot tucked away in the woods. When you're on the property, the rest of world disappears. You can hike the secluded trails, take a swim in the pond, relax in the wood-fired hot tub, or just sit on the patio and watch the hummingbirds and chipmunks. And be sure to take advantage of the outdoor shower--it offers a spectacular view at sunrise.

We've stayed in both the main house and the converted barn suite, and both were excellent. The barn suite--our favorite room--offers a private bath, kitchenette, and a private deck with access to a grill. We've had a lot of fun hitting the little food markets in the area and then comping back to Frog Meadow for a BBQ. If you're not a chef, Scott & Dave have lots of recommendations for places to eat nearby.

Each morning Dave will make a big breakfast that incorporates many locally-sourced ingredients. We've had omelets made with asparagus harvested from the garden, honey from their apiary, and apple cider made with fruit from their little orchard. Everything feels very special and deliberate.

While it is a hike from NYC--about 4 hours each way--we always come back so relaxed that it's worth the trip. You won't be disappointed.

Room tip: If you're looking for something more 'unplugged', check out the Brook Cottage.

"Frog Meadow" is the right name for this great place. As soon as the sun went down the frogs and millions of fireflies came out and filled the meadow with lights and sound.

I truly needed to find a place to relax for a few days and this place was the perfect spot. The fact that there were no screaming kids doubled the peacefulness. The hosts are two truly great people and perfect for owning a B&B.

I stayed there this past June for three nights, it rained at dusk which was good as it cooled off the hot days.

Room tip: Be sure to follow the hosts driving directions, do not try to find it by GPS as some of the roads do not exists that GPS will swear to you are there.

I had a fabulous three day weekend with David and Scott at their Inn in Newfane Vermont . it was so Calming, the air was so clear and the service was so caring and excellent and the cleanliness and the hospitality and the food were absolutely amazing :/ when you get waffles in the morning with fresh blueberries picked on the property amidst the flowers it's a real amazing experience, nice people, five star Inn.
