The Ginger Cat and Gita provided a wonderful place for us to explore Watkins Glen's hiking opportunities and wineries. We appreciated the delicious food Gita prepared and her recommendations about the area!

Our stay was lovely. Great breakfast, excellent for vegans like us! Gita was super friendly, very nice and a Farm Sanctuary supporter. We really enjoyed talking to her. Would have preferred it if cats were allowed access to the rooms :)
I'm sorry that the cats are not allowed in the guest bedrooms, but at least you were able to come into 'their' space and hang out for a while. Believe me, if it were up to them, they'd be in every room of the guest side of the B&B!

Our hostess/the owner was a lovely person, the house was beautiful, and the food was AMAZING ! Had such a wonderful time and would love to go back.

We had only scheduled one day there (on a Monday) but by morning I wished we could stay another day. It is very close to Farm Sanctuary and Gita used to work there. A warm and welcoming place. Wonderful breakfast! Also a great library of vegan-related books. (There is something wrong with the bedandbreakfast.com website. I tried to rate it as "Outstanding" but it would not accept the rating. Don't know why.) We will be back...

It was a pleasure staying with Gita during a recent vist to Farm Sanctuary in Watkins Glen -- I'd highly recommend the Ginger Cat without hesitation!
Thank you so much. Hope you'll be back again.

Gita was the perfect hostess and knowing the entire B/B was vegan made the space very peaceful and serene.
It was wonderful having you stay at the B&B.

If you are visiting the Watkins Glen area, this B&B is very convenient to town, wineries, and to the Farm Sanctuary. The vegan food is delicious and plentiful, the rooms are clean and comfortable, and the B&B owner is very gracious. Highly recommend this B&B.

The Ginger Cat was the perfect place to stay, close to Watkins Glen, and situated on a lovely and very peaceful parcel of land. Gita, our hostess, was wonderful and made us the most gorgeous vegan breakfasts. The B&B itself was very nice and absolutely immaculate. We would certainly seek out this B&B again.
Thank you so much for this great review. I hope to see you again.

Gita was a very gracious host, the food was DELICIOUS, the room was clean and comfortable, the area is GORGEOUS, the bed and breakfast is out in the country and VERY peaceful, and of course the cats were darling. Our dogs came with us and were welcomed warmly and also had a fabulous time. I highly recommend this bed and breakfast whether you are vegan/vegetarian or not!
Thanks for the great review. It was so nice to meet you AND the dogs. I saw that you viewed their photos on my Facebook page. It's a good thing you left when you did because we got another 4 inches of snow on Sunday night into Monday. Crazy weather. Hope you are all able to come back again this year.
