Welcome to the Ginger Cat Bed and Breakfast, a two-bedroom home nestled upon 15 acres in the town of Reading, New York, just a few miles northwest of Watkins Glen, NY. Voted as the favorite Vegetarian B&B in 2009 by the readers of VegNews Magazine, it is the perfect place to stay during a vacation to the Finger Lakes area. At the Ginger Cat B&B, we treat our guests as our friends and provide a cozy, clean atmosphere. We welcome families (kids 4 years and older) and one room is pet-friendly.

A vegan breakfast is served every weekday morning and a huge vegan brunch is served on Saturday and Sunday. We are also able to accommodate most dietary requirements including gluten-free.

While visiting, be sure to take a walk through the woods surrounding the house and gardens and relax on our large deck. Star-gazing is guaranteed to please as the Milky Way is directly overhead! The Ginger Cat Bed and Breakfast is located less than 15 minutes from Farm Sanctuary, Watkins Glen State Park and the Seneca Lake Wine Trail. Within 45 minutes are the towns of Corning and Ithaca.

We have resident cats to love each guest and accommodate their feline needs but the cats are not allowed in the guest quarters to reduce any chances of allergic reactions. Come stay at the Ginger Cat Bed and Breakfast and experience hospitality and grace in our cozy country home!

This is a wonderful B&B, especially for vegans! The host, Gita, is super friendly, knowledgeable, and helpful. The house is clean and welcoming and is set on 15 acres of beautiful country property. It's only a 5 minute drive into Watkins Glen, and 10 minutes to Farm Sanctuary. She has a number of very friendly cats that are not allowed in the guest quarters, but you can go in and play with them whenever you want! The food is phenomenal. We had Sat/Sun brunches and it's vegan home cooking at it's best. Gita makes a variety of tasty vegan dishes with lots of local and organic ingredients, some even from her own garden! The bathroom is outfitted with vegan products (shampoo, conditioner, soap, etc.) and is clean and well maintained. We would highly recommend this B&B to anyone visiting Watkins Glen!

This is by far the best bed and breakfast i ever stayed at. We Were four people from Sweden visiting in this summer 2013. We wanted to live at a vegan bnb, and this is, but so much more. Gita and the Cats give the place this family atmosphere that make you feel visiting a friend rather than a bnb. Also the village Watkins Glen has a LOT to offer all due Its small size. For the nature lover there is plenty of water falls and mountain hiking tracks, but what we liked the most was that this is Vegan Heaven! There is an ice cream bar with 24 flavours of vegan soft ice cream, the cosy restaurant Harvest Café, with the best vegan cheese hamburgers i have ever tasted and the Farm Sanctuary, Were animala rescued from the food industry are living. Just go to Watkins Glen and Gitas place!!

We had an amazing weekend at Ginger Cat B&B. Gita (the owner) made us feel so at home. I felt like I had known her for years pretty quickly after arriving for the first time. Her home (the B&B) is warm, cozy, clean and cruelty free ;) The cats were so much fun. They are so well-behaved, but kept out of the guest area for those who are allergic (or otherwise don't want to be around cats). In addition to being a kind, generous and warm person, she is also an amazing cook. Vegans and non-vegans alike will love her cooking. Though Gita keeps a vegan home, all are welcome here - even meat eaters. Ginger Cat is convenient to downtown Watkins Glen, wineries, hiking trails, and (drum roll please) Farm Sanctuary! :) There are 2 guest rooms here, and our fellow guests were so friendly. We had a great time with everyone. It was so wonderful to come back to a warm home every night, rather than a hotel room (plus you have access to food/beverage/toiletries 24/7 that you would not at a hotel). I highly recommend Ginger Cat B&B and can't wait to visit again soon. Thank you Gita!
