European bed and breakfast accomodations often consist of a family-style spare bedroom in someone's home. Their charm comes from the chance to interact with the owner, perhaps over a meal, and to get off the usual tourist path. So it is with the Ginger Cat. Gita is a thoughtful host who welcomed us into her home, offered lots of loving attention to our canine traveling companion, and drew us in to a lively political discussion over breakfast in the kitchen. I recommend the Ginger Cat for travlers wishing to avoid anonymous hotels, in addition to animal lovers and those following a vegan lifestyle.
I'm so glad that you all enjoyed your stay here. Because my cats are not so crazy about dogs and I respect their wishes and won't bring a dog into my part of the house, I always enjoy having canine guests coming to stay, along with their humans. Hope you'll stay here again.

The Ginger Cat was the perfect place for me to stay for my first visit to Watkins Glen! Gita was an amazing hostess providing us with local tips and the most amazing food. Rooms were attractive, clean, and comfortable. I am looking forward to my next visit to Watkins Glen and the Ginger Cat!

Gita is a wonderful host and the room we stayed in was wonderfully sweet and cozy. Her specialty is the all-vegan breakfast, from a yoghurt parfait, tonnes of fresh berries, the frittata, the collards, and the rest. She will spoil you rotten. I highly recommend staying at the Ginger Cat! Jo
I hope you'll be able to come and stay again!

We recently had the pleasure of staying with Gita at the Ginger Cat B&B in New York. It was our second visit and even better than the first. Her delicious breakfasts were HUGE and varied - so good. We were missing the excellent cooking when we came home. Staying at the Ginger Cat was a fabulous escape from the usual. It was so quiet and peaceful, and Gita & her kitties were welcoming and helpful. It's like staying with old friends! Highly recommend to anyone visiting the area!

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 in the guest quarters, but you can go in and play with them whenever you want! The food is phenomenal. We had Sat/Sun brunches and it's vegan home cooking at it's best. Gita makes a variety of tasty vegan dishes with lots of local and organic ingredients, some even from her own garden! The bathroom is clean and well maintained. We would highly recommend this B&B to anyone visiting Watkins Glen!

We would love to stay here again. Gita and the kitties were warm, welcoming, and conversational hosts. The property looks just as pictured, and the food was wonderful. It was a weekday, but she still had blueberry coffee cake, scones, fresh bread, yogurt/fruit parfait, coffee/tea, baked tofu, and more. Gita also offers great recommendations for the area and we couldn't have imagined a better host. Thanks!
Thanks so much! I hope you do return and stay here again. The cats and I look forward to seeing you again.

This was our second time at the Ginger Cat Bed & Breakfast, and we always enjoy our time there. The rooms are very comfortable, the grounds are beautiful, the breakfast is bountiful and delicious, and Gita is great company and an accommodating host. We will definitely be returning!

My wife and I had a lovely 2-night stay at the Ginger Cat. The home and garden is lovely and the breakfasts were very nice. Also, Gita is a great host providing local knowledge and insights. We will return!

It was a very nice place to stay. We are not Vegan but the food was very good.
