A Wonderful Stay

5 on October 30, 2013

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.

From the moment I arrived to the minute I left this most beautiful, warm and invitiing bed and breakfast, it was a "calgon take me away" experience. Due to extreme Friday afternoon traffic coming from New York, I didn't arrive until 10:00 pm, but Gita was very accomodating and even left me a slice of chocolate cake that was so delicious I wouldn't have known it was vegan! The house smelt like beautiful herbs that were not nauseauting but pleasant, clean and inviting. My room was huge with these large blankets. I immediately fell in and went right to sleep. But the breakfast is what everyone should get a chance to experience!! Gita made us an all vegan buffet of waffles, sausage and peppers, fruit with yogurt, baked fruit crisp, coffee, salad and berries!!! So delicious! At this point I already wanted to move in. But then came the bestest part for me...we got to meet her six cats that she keeps separated from the bed and breakfast area. But when you walk in you would never know that Gita had cats! The place is immaculately clean and reminds me of a Martha Stewart cottage! Gita only allows folks to meet her cats who express an interest. I would gladly stay at this bed and breakfast again and again because of the gracious hospitality, clean and inviting space, delicious food and wonderful hostess. Liz

Good vegan food and comfortable, quiet place. Enjoyed the cat contact!

Relaxing Stay

5 on October 19, 2013

We had the pleasure of staying at the Ginger Cat Bed and Breakfast on our trip to visit the Farm Sanctuary in October. Our one night stay at the Ginger Cat was relaxing and cozy. We arrived rather late in the evening but Gita greeted us in the drive way and had two pieces of delicious vegan brownies waiting for us in our room. Our room was clean and very cozy. We had a delicious vegan breakfast awaiting us in the morning. There was a great variety of things to choose fro to eat. Everything was yummy. Gita was a very gracious host and introduced us to her beautiful cats. I would recommend the Ginger Cat to anyone who would like a cozy, quiet, and relaxing bed and breakfast.

The service was excellent, the rooms charming, the food good (even though we are not vegan). The only thing I would have wished for is a sitting area.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for your kind review and the constructive feedback. I've thought of possibly expanding the breakfast room to add a sitting/lounge area, but just haven't been able to justify the cost. B&B guests are always welcome to relax in the living room of the main house so long as they don't mind getting some cat fur on their clothing or cats on their laps.
