Welcome to the Ginger Cat B&B

You enter through the breezeway into a large 4-season porch. This is where you'll have your breakfast and it's a nice place to just relax.

Breakfast room


The porch has a sink, fridge, microwave and toaster. There's an instant hot water dispenser so you can make yourself a cup of tea or soup at any time.

The porch opens onto the large 16'x30' deck that overlooks some of the flower and vegetable gardens. The porch opens onto the Deck

Want to do some bird watching? Just sit still and soon the birds will arrive at the feeders.

The deck faces west and you will be able to watch the sunset. And on those long, hot summer nights, you'll be amazed at the stars. We have very little ambient light to block the light of the stars. The Milky Way is right overhead!

In the early morning or at dusk, if you're very still, you might catch a glimpse of the deer who visit us most days.

Doe and Fawn


Two spacious bedrooms are available, both with a Queen-sized bed, large closet, central air, ceiling fans and double windows. They share a modern, renovated bath.

Zachary Bedroom
Zachary's Room is painted in soothing earth tones, faces southwest so it catches the beautiful warm glow of the afternoon sunlight.  It is the dog-friendly room.

Ariel Bedroom
Ariel's Room is a warm blue and faces east so you can watch the sunrise.

We are now able to provide fiber optic Internet access.  We finally have joined the 21st century!

FYI - you can also get wireless from several places in Watkins Glen.

New this year, we have installed USB charging stations in the guest rooms.

I don't know the owner personally, but he's highly recommended by the President of the Schuyler County Humane Society.  She said the facility is beautiful and the dogs are very well cared for.  This place is located 13 miles north west of me, near Keuka Lake and would probably be a 30 minute drive, at most.
