Always a great experience

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!


Fantastic B & B!

Room and bathroom were comfortable and sooooo clean! Gita was so welcoming and we could not have asked for a better hostess. Breakfast was yummy and abundant. Would definitely stay here again.


Lovely home and garden

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!


Two great nights

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


lovely place, lovely host

5 on July 17, 2014

We stayed two nights at Ginger B&B and absolutely loved it. Gita is an outstanding host, an incredible cook, and an amazing person. We had fresh home baked vegan chocolate cake waiting for us when we arrived. Delish! The weekend breakfasts were over the top with many ingredients from Gita's own garden. Her tofu fritatta is insanely good. And then topping homemade waffles with black raspberries picked just minutes before?? Heavenly. We just wish we had more time to spend there. Ginger Cat B&B was completely relaxing and comfortable, and Gita made us feel very much at home. If you do stay there, be sure to walk through her yard and gardens. We felt like little kids doing so. Ginger Cat B&B is a lovely place and Gita is a lovely host. Highly recommended, we'll definitely be back!

Innkeeper Response
You're too kind! I look forward to your next visit. And - as promised - I'll make 2 frittatas so you can eat as much as you want or have left-overs for the next morning.


Pleasant Surprise

5 on July 16, 2014

When I walked in the front door the whole house smelled of chocolate cake, I found out that this cake was for us, as a welcome offering. (She does this for all guest). The place was incredible and clean. Gita made us fill so at home. In the morning breakfast is a 8 am. She made some delicious banana muffins, a little cherry yogurt with fresh fruit. We had coffee and some great conversations with Gita. The room rate is better then any other rooms I could find in the area, this truly was a unplanned pleasant surprise on our six weeks of vacation.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you so much for this kind review. When you told me that you were a professional chef, I was a bit intimidated. I thoroughly enjoyed our conversations about vegan foods and hope that you and your family will stay here again the next time you're in the area.


A quiet, beautiful property

We had a restful stay. Gita cooked some delicious breakfasts for us, and we were also free to snack later if we wanted. There was plenty of reading material to occupy us. We especially enjoyed the yard, garden, and deck. And of course, meeting the resident cats. The bathroom was especially nice and spacious with vegan & cruelty-free toiletries that we enjoyed. It was a short drive to Farm Sanctuary, and Gita gave us clear directions.

Innkeeper Response
Glad you enjoyed your stay here. Come back again. The cats will be sure to greet you enthusiastically!


Very Enjoyable Experience!

Meeting Gita and her family of cats was a wonderful experience! I am typically a dog lover, but her cats were great to meet and be around! Her close association with the Farm Sanctuary gave us a great perspective even before we visited for our volunteer day. Gita's collection of wonderful animal-oriented movies and non-animal cookbooks and baked goods and her wealth of information added to our experience!! Our room was wonderful. I would highly recommend this bed and breakfast for any animal lover! Diana, Penfield NY

Innkeeper Response
Diana - thanks so much for your kind words. I understand that you all had a great time painting barns during your work party. I've seen photos and you all did a great job. Hope to have you stay here again.


Wonderful place to stay.

We arrived with chocolate cake waiting for us! Whether you're visiting wine country or nearby Farm Sanctuary, this place is a must. The owner will make you feel at home and the atmosphere is so inviting. Gorgeous deck, lovely rooms, and by far the best breakfasts! The bonus was meeting the awesome cats of the Ginger Cat- such personalities and they gave me my animal fix while away from home. We have already booked our next visit!


A Wonderful Stay

My husband and I really enjoyed staying at the Ginger Cat. Gita was a gracious hostess and a delight to converse with. Her weekend brunches are absolutely delicious and kept us full until dinner time. The place was very clean and fruit was left out for guests to snack on at night. Her cats were all so beautiful and friendly and were kept separate from the guest quarters. Gita provided us with ideas for restaurants that serve vegan food and vegan wineries. We were minutes away from Farm Sanctuary. My husband and I are definitely coming back.
