The Ginger Cat Bed & Breakfast

Traveller (15)
Room & Suite (8)
Dining (5)


Nestled on 15 acres a few miles northwest of Watkins Glen, NY, the Ginger Cat B&B is the perfect place to stay during your vacation in the Finger Lakes. Our philosophy is simple: Treat our guests as friends. Provide clean and comfortable accommodations, serve great food (100% vegan) and be as helpful as possible. Gluten free - no problem. Watch the magnificent sunsets and stargaze from the large deck or take a walk through the woods that surround the house and gardens. One of our rooms is pet friendly and kids over the age of 3 are welcome.

After a night at the high-rise neon hell that is now Niagara Falls, and then about four hours' driving, it was a blessed relief to arrive at the Ginger Cat. Gita was so welcoming and kind, and very understanding as myself and my teenage daughters pretty much threw ourselves on

Thank you for this kind review. It was wonderful to meet your family and I hope that your daughter continues on her road towards a more compassionate and peaceful life. It would be great if she did end up interning at Farm Sanctuary. I know that would be a life-changing experience for her. Hope you'll come back again. Gita

The Ginger Cat Bed and Breakfast was one of the nicer places we've stayed at in recent years. They had a really sweet, handsome cat named Wally I loved, good food, and were close to the town of Watkins Glen.

The Ginger Cat B & B is a VERY special and magical place. WE LOVE IT! Gita, the innkeeper, is kind and knows everything about the area. If you are traveling as a vegan or with a vegan, this is the place to stay. It's close to loads of vegan wineries and eateries. And Gita can
