Beautiful B&B with all of the amenities, including VIP access to the sanctuary. The free roaming goats, sheep, pigs, and chickens (and barn cats) make this a must stay!! Breakfast was delicious and the staff was exceptional.

We enjoyed every minute staying in this beautiful property. The pancakes for breakfast were absolutely delicious! The perk was meeting the sanctuary animals and learning about how we use and treat animals. Eye-opening and very educational. We will be back!

It was a perfect getaway from NYC, and our kids loved staying on the farm and getting to see and learn about all of the animals. The B&B manager Erica couldn't have been nicer and our kids are still talking about the waffles she made for breakfast!

We stayed overnight in the suite at The Homestead, and it was wonderful! Erica and Nancy were SO accommodating, the food was delicious, and the building and grounds were gorgeous! If I could select a rating higher than 5 stars, I would. My family and I had an amazing experience, and I look forward to staying here again!

I've visited the Catskill Animal Sanctuary and stayed at the Homestead twice, this past weekend being the second time. Each time was wonderful. The house itself is clean and well kept. My husband and I stayed in the Rambo Room and it was bright and beautiful! The exposed brick and antique decor was gorgeous. The king-sized bed was a real...

My boyfriend and I loved staying here. The house was clean, breakfast was delicious, and most importantly, all the animals were absolutely charming. It was well-worth the price and the 2.5 hour drive. The only downside was that we weren't able to watch Netflix, but this wasn't a big deal. We had so much fun meeting the animals and hearing...

What an amazing experience! Loved visiting with all the animals, but the home was just beautiful. We immediately felt like family. We cannot say enough good things about Catskill Animal Sanctuary! The amount of love and compassion we felt all around was absolutely rejuvenating.

Everything was beyond our expectations. We adored the animals and look forward to coming back for another visit. Brunch with the owner/founder was very special on Sunday morning. And the personal tour of the Sanctuary made the trip complete.
