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

Thank you so much for your kind words. I was so happy that you were able to attend Chef Kevin's amazing dinner. I do hope that you'll come back for a longer stay as there is so much to see and do around here. AND - you'll be able to visit with the animals at Farm Sanctuary again. 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 ♥️

This all vegan B & B is 5 minutes North of Watkins Glen and 5 minutes South of wine country but nestled in a private setting on a beautiful 15 acres. Yes, it's February! The wineries are open and running lots of specials. Her vegan brunches are well planned, delicious, and plentiful. She's a great cook and a wonderful person... More

I stayed at the Ginger Cat Bed and Breakfast for a week's vacation and I truly did not want to go home! I had specifically made the trip to go to visit the Farm Sanctuary, so knowing it was vegan and there were cats I knew it was the perfect place to stay! Everything was just wonderful, from the extremely... More

My girlfriend and I came out for a 2-night stay to enjoy Ithaca, Watkins Glen, the Farm Sanctuary, and the early fall foliage. Gita was a great host, greeting our arrival with pieces of moist chocolate cake, fresh fruits, a chance to hang out with her adorable, affectionate cats, and helpful information about things to do in the area and...

My wife and I were drawn to Ginger Cat because it was vegan, close to the Farm Sanctuary and had great reviews. All three of the of the above are true.

This is a wonderful B&B, especially for vegans! The host, Gita, is super friendly, knowledgeable, and helpful. The house is clean and welcoming and is set on 15 acres of beautiful country property. It's only a 5 minute drive into Watkins Glen, and 10 minutes to Farm Sanctuary. She has a number of very friendly cats that are not allowed... More

It's been 6 years since my last visit to Watkins Glen. Last time I camped at Farm Sanctuary to attend their Country Hoe Down. While I am not vegan I have strived to transition to a vegetarian/pescatarian diet with some successes and failures. This trip was to celebrate my 1 year anniversary with my boyfriend. It was a lovely get-a-way... More

Michelle - Thank you for your kind words. When I read your entry in the guest book, I was so touched that I might have had a hand in your on-going journey to 'veganhood'.
