Frog Hill is a 3-acre, retreat-like private residence in historic Washington Valley, just outside downtown Morristown NJ. Nestled among thousands of acres of protected land, the area is about one hour by car or train from Midtown Manhattan. The residence provides a number of indoor and outdoor spaces to hold sessions for PraXis.
