I stumbled upon the Catskill Farm Animal Sanctuary through Facebook and knew immediately i wanted to visit this special place. We combined our stay at that Homestead with a stop at the Bethel Woods Performing Arts Center and a trip into the town of Woodstock. The Homestead is a beautiful house and the Samson Suite was the perfect fit for... More

My wife, myself, and our puppy stayed one night in the Samson suite at the Homestead, and overall, it was a very relaxing getaway. Erica, the Homestead Manager, was very accommodating to ensure we were able to check in as we were running late, treated us to freshly prepared vegan pancakes the next morning, and overall ensured our stay was...

I loved every moment of staying at The Homestead at Catskills Farm Sanctuary. Kathy and everyone else that I met were so lovely that I felt very relaxed. We were able to wander around and spend time with the animals whenever we wanted which was a wonderful experience. Relaxing and educational along with meeting lots of animals and people

The Homestead was great. Our rooms were comfortable, roomy and cozy. The house itself is a gem. We're definitely planning to go there again. We're not vegans, but the breakfast was delicious. The friendly staff made our stay easy going and relaxed.

I stayed for 3 days and 2 nights and got very personalized tours. I hardly left the grounds and never got bored, never watched tv. There is good vegan food in the area, although it does require driving, and there is no warm food on premise after they prepare your breakfast. But if you have a car, it doesn't matter,... More

The homestead was so warm and welcoming we had a really nice stay. The coffee was delicious and the animals were the best part of the trip. I wish we could have gone in the cow pen to spend time with them like it was at another sanctuary I visited but I'm sure there were reasons for that. It was... More

As a family we felt incredibly bonded by staying at the homestead which enabled us all to have this shared experience of seeing, touching and hearing about the rescued animals in the sanctuary. As vip guests because we stayed at the homestead we were able to walk around the sanctuary ourselves in the late afternoon which was amazing then do... More

We had a fabulous time staying at the Homestead! Breakfasts were a divine treat and the house is gorgeous and cozy. I'm thankful we were able to stay three nights, which still almost didn't seem like enough! Thanks, Erica! You are a gracious host!!!

It was a nice break from the city to relax at the Homestead. I had brought a vegan dinner and bottle of wine for the evening since I don't have a car, and was able to put them in the fridge and enjoy them on the grounds. Erica made delicious pancakes in the morning. Simple but lovely room, the mattress... More

What an incredible house to stay in and in such a beautiful location. We stayed in the Dino Room, the smallest room of the house, but very homey with lovely decor! When you stay at The Homestead, you are a VIP and have the opportunity to walk around the sanctuary at your leisure! Once it started raining, my boyfriend and... More
