"Loved the hot tub, looking up at the stars and moon, bathed in warmth in spite of the crisp air. The sounds of nature serenaded us. Very comfortable bed and pillow. Particularly loved the granola and coffee. "− Jenna W.
"Frogs Way is a unique place in a beautiful setting. The entire place combines comfort with a commitment to environmental responsibility. My room was so comfortable with a magnificent view over the valley and the town of Ithaca. During my visit it snowed and the view from my room was exquisite. Eco Village is such an inspiring community of folk dedicated to walking the walk, living out a shared commitment to living consciously and responsibly. I loved the nutritious food, the explanations about the values the community upholds, and the precious community they have created. It is so rare to find a bed and breakfast that is so comfortable and also so inspiring. I learned a lot during my stay about how to live more simply and consciously while having a great time."− Brian, West Tisbury, Massachusetts

Thanks again to you and your wife for your generous hospitality. "− Heidi & Colin, Lancaster, PA
"Thank you so much for putting me up at such short notice.

I'll be bringing a lot home with me to NJ."− Anne B
