Farm Sanctuary’s New York Shelter
Bed & Breakfast
Wake up to crowing roosters on our picturesque farm located in the Finger Lakes region of upstate New York. As our Bed & Breakfast guest, you will stay in one of our spacious country 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. We are also just minutes from breathtaking gorges and waterfalls, quaint wineries, miles of hiking trails and lakes, and other attractions.
Farm Sanctuary Bed & Breakfast cabins are open 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.
Guests may check in any time after 3 p.m. For all other times, arrangements will be made for guests in advance. Check-out time is noon.
All cabins contain two double beds, a dresser, and a sitting area with two chairs, two small tables, reading lamp, a mini fridge with freezer, and a rollaway cot. Restroom and shower facilities are located within a short walking distance of the cabins in the Visitor Center and are handicapped accessible. Your cabin, the shelter, and the Visitor Center are smoke-free environments. Smoking is permitted only on the porch of your cabin.
Your stay includes a vegan continental breakfast of pastries, oatmeal, and bagels served with juice, fruit, coffee, and tea. Breakfast is served from 8 a.m. to 10 a.m. in the Visitor Center.
Shelter Tour Information
All Bed & Breakfast guests receive a complimentary shelter tour. Bed & Breakfast tours are held daily at 10 a.m. Guests staying on public tour days are also welcome to join a tour later in the day. Public shelter tours are held every hour, on the hour, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. In May, September, and October, public tours are held on weekends only. In June, July, and August, public tours are held Wednesday through Sunday.
Guests are welcome to browse in our Visitor Center to learn about farm animal issues and what you can do to help stop “food animal” abuses. The Sanctuary gift shop offers unique country crafts, an excellent selection of books on vegan cooking and animals rights, cruelty-free gifts, and a delicious assortment of vegan snacks.
Companion animals are always welcome, but for their safety, as well as that of the sanctuary residents, we must request your companion be on a leash at all times. Companion animals are not permitted near animal housing barns at any time. We also request that your animal companion not be left in your cabin unattended for extended periods of time.
For each additional person, add $10. Reservations of four or more consecutive nights will receive a 5% discount off the entire stay. Children ages 3 and under are free.
Please note: an occupancy tax of 4% will be added at the time of the reservation.
Out of respect for the rescued animals at Farm Sanctuary, we require all food on the premises to be vegan (no meat, dairy, eggs, or animal by-products). If you need further information about a vegan diet, please let us know. We would be happy to assist you.
