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.
I'm so glad that you enjoyed the food!

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!
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.

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.
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.

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