Wake up to roosters crowing at our picturesque sanctuary located in the Finger Lakes region of upstate New York. As our Bed & Breakfast guest, you will stay in one of our spacious cabins overlooking the sanctuary.

In the morning, you’ll enjoy a continental vegan breakfast. Throughout the day guests are welcome to browse our Visitor Center, pitch in with shelter chores, or enjoy the companionship of our farm animal friends.

Farm Sanctuary Bed & Breakfast cabins are open to our members from May 1 to October 31, and early reservations are always recommended. Reservations are required and payable in advance by Visa, MasterCard, Discover, American Express, money order, or personal check.
