My girlfriend & I stayed here for a cold birthday weekend in January - we wanted to get out of the city, try wines (many vineyards close by!), hike the beautiful Watkins Glen Park (right down the road!) & Taughannock Falls (30min), and try Gita's renowned vegan cooking. I'm vegetarian, and my girlfriend is vegan. Breakfasts were amazing! Lots of... More

Thank you so much for this amazing review. It was a pleasure to host you both and I'm glad that the weather cooperated so you could get some hiking in, along with making glass flowers at the museum. Watching the Democratic debate with you both was also a lot of fun. The feline boys send their regards and hope to... More

Gita Devi offers a quiet, countryside location, close enough to Watkins Glen for convenience, but far enough away from its hustle and bustle to revel in the natural country setting that is her 15 acre property. I'm not a vegan; neither is my wife, however Gita offers a wonderful, albeit meatless, tasty breakfast and excellent coffee. Her B&B is spotless... More

Thank you so much for this amazing review. It makes me so happy when I'm able to show people that eating vegan meals can be just as tasty as non-vegan ones. And I'm also glad that you were able to watch some of the solar eclipse before the clouds rolled in. I hope that you'll be back again. It was... More

We had such a wonderful time at Ginger Cat! We loved staying with a fellow vegan and it was nice to know that the house was cruelty free! Gita was so kind and hospitable, it was hard to leave. We look forward to returning!

Just returned from a great weekend at the Ginger Cat. Only 10 minutes from Farm Sanctuary, this all-vegan B&B exudes warmth and comfort. Gita is terrific. She seemingly knows everything and everyone in the vegan and animal rescue communities. Breakfast conversation is easy and enjoyable and there is nothing like meeting and speaking with like-minded guests. But, you need not... More

The B&B was very easy to find, very close to the Farm Sanctuary, Lakewood winery and Watkins Glen. The owner Gita has been running this B&B for a long time and knows what she's doing. The place was clean and nicely decorated. You walk through the front door into a living room with refrigerator, dining room table, sink, books, games,... More

My wife and I had a lovely stay at the Ginger Cat in early June, 2015. Gita is an incredibly welcoming hostess, and makes quite a tasty breakfast. The B&B is small, only two rooms, so may not work if you are a large group, but on the flip side you won't feel crowded like can happen at larger B&Bs.... More

We had a peaceful and beautiful stay. Gita and the kitties are wonderful hosts. Gita cooked a delicious vegan breakfast, she asked for any allergies and preferences, and she will teach you and share experiences.Thank you for the stay and food... Much love and we will be back with our friends and family ♥️

I stayed at the Ginger Cat Bed and Breakfast for a week's vacation and I truly did not want to go home!
