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

Harry/Jenny - it was so nice to meet both of you and even though it was bitterly cold outside during your stay I am happy that you enjoyed the warmth of all that this area has to offer. I was really glad that you attended the Mardi Gras event. And I agree - the vegan food was incredible. I was... 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. 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

Owner Gita Devi is one-woman Visitor's Center, able to give valuable recommendations for vegan dining, local crafts, wineries, and other area attractions.

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'.

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
