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...

A delicious vegan breakfast is prepared by Erica and guests are free to walk the sanctuary grounds and visit with the animals during their stay. This...

My husband and I went to The Homestead for an overnight visit and then a tour by the director of the farm. WOW! The Homestead is just gorgeous and totally comfortable. The breakfast was so yummy. Everything is vegan and if you are vegan or not, the food was wonderful. The staff is helpful, courteous and friendly. It's a beautiful...

I've never felt closer to nature yet so comfortable and pampered. The Homestead at CAS is truly a gem. It boasts pristine amenities, warm and welcoming staff and it is less than a five minute walk from a visit with all the healing yet loving and affectionate rescued animals down the hill. I cannot recommend The Homestead highly enough.

Staying at the homestead was awesome. Erica cooked yummy tasting breakfast each day we stayed. The rooms are comfortable and we loved the decorations. Beyond all of that, it's an incredible experience to stay close to the animals and get to visit with them. We'l be back in the summer!

Everything about my stay at the Homestead was lovely and memorable. The room was spacious and well designed for convenience. The hosts were happy, accommodating, and prepared delicious vegan breakfasts. Both Erica and Nancy were eager to please and passionate about their mission at the sanctuary and providing guests a comfortable experience.

The Homestead was lovely. We had a beautiful and cozy room. The entire house is lovely and super guest friendly. It was quiet when we were there (we go there right after the Thanksgiving rush) so we had the place to ourselves. Nancy made us a tasty vegan breakfast and was super friendly. We loved our tour of the sanctuary,...
