Our stay at the Homestead was just what we were looking for. A quiet and comfortable place to celebrate our anniversary low key in a place we love. The staff were great, very accommodating, friendly and helpful. The rooms were adorable, nicely appointed and clean. Charm throughout the entire place. We look forward to returning soon. My only critique would...

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.

We are so happy to hear the Homestead and Sanctuary exceeded your expectations! Breakfast and a private tour with our Founder Kathy Stevens is definitely a VERY special time, especially since this offer is only 3x a year! We would love to see you both again. Thank you for your amazing support!

My wife and I stayed at the Homestead for two nights in February 2017. The host of the B&B, Erica, was knowledgeable about the area, extremely accommodating, and made great pancakes. We highly recommend the tour of the rescue sanctuary facility (our tour guide was Kaden), as we got to meet some of the animals up close and get to...

My boyfriend and I loved our stay at The Homestead. The staff and other guests were inviting, great to chat with and the vegan breakfast was delicious! We stayed in the Dino room which is small for an adult couple but it was the only room left when we booked and I really wanted to stay at the sanctuary. I...

I visited the Catskill Animal Sanctuary and stayed at the Homestead for an overnight in February. The occasion was ostensibly my boyfriend's birthday, but the only occasion necessary is your love of animals and your desire to have the best sleep & breakfast of your life in a beautiful, peaceful place. And I'd say the weekend was even more magical...
