We loved our stay at the Ginger Cat! Great location--just a short drive to Farm Sanctuary and Watkins Glen downtown area. Breakfast was delicious and the room was lovely. It was nice to stay at an all vegan B&B and to have plenty of recommendations for vegan food in the area. Hoping to come back for another Farm Sanctuary visit...

Our time at The Ginger Cat couldn't have been nicer. Gita is very accommodating, making beautiful vegan breakfasts even meat eaters would love. The B&B was lovely, very comfortable, and sparkling clean! The surrounding area is very quiet and peaceful but still only a few minutes from many Finger Lake wineries.

What a great place to stay near Watkins Glen. We stayed there one night after a day at the race track, it was very peaceful and cozy. The setting is very rural with lots of land around the house. It is a small place but not lacking for comfort or amenities. There are only two rooms but that allows Gita...

Thanks so much for the great review. I was so glad that everything worked out and you were able to attend the breakfast on Sunday. Hope you enjoyed your burritos and rice crispy treats on your ride back home. Please give Tucker a hug from me. And hope to see you all again soon.

We could not have asked for a better weekend getaway than to stay at the Ginger Cat with the lovely Gita and her 5 kitties. Whether you are a vegan or not, Gita takes great pride in creating comfort for her guests. Delicious food, pet friendly (our dogs did not want to leave!), peaceful countryside aura, and a knowledgeable and...

My partner and I absolutely loved our one-night stay at Ginger Cat this past Valentine's Day. When we arrived, Gita surprised us with two delicious heart-shaped chocolate desserts in our room. The breakfast that we were treated to the next morning was just as delicious! She made us coconut yogurt parfaits with granola and berries, banana muffins, waffles with fruit...

My girlfriend & I stayed here for a cold birthday weekend in January - we wanted to get out of the city, try wines (many vineyards close by!), hike the beautiful Watkins Glen Park (right down the road!) & Taughannock Falls (30min), and try Gita's renowned vegan cooking. I'm vegetarian, and my girlfriend is vegan. Breakfasts were amazing! Lots of...

Thank you so much for this amazing review. It was a pleasure to host you both and I'm glad that the weather cooperated so you could get some hiking in, along with making glass flowers at the museum. Watching the Democratic debate with you both was also a lot of fun. The feline boys send their regards and hope to...

Gita Devi offers a quiet, countryside location, close enough to Watkins Glen for convenience, but far enough away from its hustle and bustle to revel in the natural country setting that is her 15 acre property. I'm not a vegan; neither is my wife, however Gita offers a wonderful, albeit meatless, tasty breakfast and excellent coffee. Her B&B is spotless...

We had such a wonderful time at Ginger Cat! We loved staying with a fellow vegan and it was nice to know that the house was cruelty free! Gita was so kind and hospitable, it was hard to leave. We look forward to returning!

Just returned from a great weekend at the Ginger Cat. Only 10 minutes from Farm Sanctuary, this all-vegan B&B exudes warmth and comfort. Gita is terrific. She seemingly knows everything and everyone in the vegan and animal rescue communities. Breakfast conversation is easy and enjoyable and there is nothing like meeting and speaking with like-minded guests. But, you need not...

The B&B was very easy to find, very close to the Farm Sanctuary, Lakewood winery and Watkins Glen. The owner Gita has been running this B&B for a long time and knows what she's doing. The place was clean and nicely decorated. You walk through the front door into a living room with refrigerator, dining room table, sink, books, games,...
