We were in town for Farm Sanctuary's Hoe Down and stayed at Ginger Cat for three nights. It was a lovely place to stay and we would certainly stay there again.

I was visiting Farm Sanctuary and needed a compassionate place to stay. As you know anyone can offer a bed and a place to retire for the evening. The Ginger Cat was so much more than that. Gita, the proprietress, was informative, helpful and understanding of my specific issues. Upon arrival I was greeted with a homemade peanut butter chocolate vegan delight as well as a fig bar. I was having some medical issues and she was kind enough to bring my suitcases into my room for me despite it only being up five steps. The breakfast that greeted me was among the most delicious I've ever had. Not only was the tofu tarts, fresh asparagus, fresh salad, vegan parfait (and excellent bread) extraordinarily delicious and totally vegan but I was satiated for the whole day! Having recently become vegan this is a much needed eye-opener on how I can sustain and thrive on my vegan diet. Of course that is not the Ginger Cat's mission statement. I assume their mission statement is to provide a wonderful experience (not just an educational one). They hit a homerun on both fronts and I look forward to being in the presence of this magical place again, hopefully soon.

I cannot stay here enough! We make excuses to go on vacation just to stay at the Ginger Cat. 100% in love with everything about it.
Oh my! Thank you for making my day.

This is the best place to stay in NY. My wife and I have been returning every year for 8 years and have fallen in love with this little gem. The food is incredible and Gita is an outstandingly wonderful host. You will likely love it here as we do.
Thank you so much for this amazing review. Hoping for many more years to come.

Lovely, quiet place to stay very close to the Farm Sanctuary. Run by a sweet woman who is also a wonderful cook. Very lucky to find a special vegan friendly place to stay. We'll be back!

Beautiful, comfortable, and quiet. Geta and her friendly felines are amazing. Geta is so knowledge about the area and recommendations were spot on. Would definitely recommend the Ginger Cat B&B for your next stay. Just wish we had more time.

My 2 dogs and I were welcomed with open arms to this beautiful vegan oasis! The room was cozy, the bed was comfortable and the food was outstanding! We also enjoyed spending time in the beautiful garden. I highly recommend a visit to Farm Sanctuary, only minutes away, where you will meet all kinds of animals rescued from this animal agriculture industry. I will be back!
It was a pleasure to meet you and the dogs. Give them both a hug from me. I hope you'll be back, for a longer stay. And I hope you had a great time at the walk in NYC. Looking at online photos, it seemed as though it was a huge success.

This was a cute place and exactly what I'd imagine a b&b to be like. You are a guest in someone's home, so the charms of the home come through during your stay. I got my 'cat fix' in as well and was able to pet the three kitties that live there before I left. There was a hot, full breakfast served right on time, and the room was comfortable to sleep in. The bathroom included shampoo/conditioner/soap, which was great!
