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. We were very happy to spend an evening at the Ginger Cat and very pleased with the breakfast Gita prepared for us. We felt like we belonged at her... More

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

My husband and I just stayed one night at The Ginger Cat B & B. Owner Gita Devi is one-woman Visitor's Center, able to give valuable recommendations for vegan dining, local crafts, wineries, and other area attractions. She worked at nearby Farm Sanctuary and is committed "to being the change she wishes to see in the world" as the saying... 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'. It was a pleasure to meet you and your boyfriend and I'm glad that you both enjoyed your stay here. I look forward to seeing you... More

My daughter and I stayed here over Memorial Day weekend and loved it. Gita is an amazing vegan cook. The breakfasts are awesome. We spent a morning at the nearby Farm Sanctuary and learned that her food is legendary! The room was charming, and I slept very well. Gita has been involved with the Farm Sanctuary for years and was... More

This was a lovely bed and breakfast near Watkins Glen and the Farm Sanctuary. A complete vegan breakfast was provided. The owner was very helpful in navigating the surrounding area for vegan dining. The room was clean and cheerful and the food was wonderful. Note that the bathroom is shared, but it appears to only be shared with one other... More

Our trip to the Farm Sanctuary and the Finger Lakes region around Watkins Glen was made more unique by our two-night stay at the Ginger Cat B&B. It was really interesting to meet and talk to other couples who share a vegan lifestyle and who chose the Ginger Cat B&B as part of their vacation. There are just two rooms... More

My friends and I stayed at the Ginger Cat B&B in fall 2012. We came across it because the cabins at Farm Sanctuary were all booked up, and we needed a place located nearby. It turned out to be a blessing in disguise that FS was unavailable, because we were so happy to discover this place. Gita is the most... More

Thanks so much for the great review. I'm sorry that the baby kept you awake the first night. Re: not letting cats in the guests quarters. Believe it or not, I do have people who stay here who ARE allergic to cats! I try to keep the Ariel Room as allergy-free as possible since the Zachary Room is pet-friendly, although... More

We loved The Ginger Cat. Gita is very kind and hospital. The rooms are very clean and comfortable. The area is beautiful and close to Watkins Glen and Farm Sanctuary. We loved being able to hang out with the cats that she keeps separate from the guest area. Gita also makes an amazing vegan brunch. The only thing that kept... More
