The Homestead

As seen on TripAdvisor! The Homestead is a renovated pre-Civil War residence, restored using traditional building methods and eco-friendly salvaged materials. Guests enjoy a seasonal vegan breakfast and spend quality time with our nearly 300 rescued residents. You’ll love the beautiful Hudson Valley and its unrivaled hiking, shopping, dining, and more!

We warmly invite you and yours to join us for a unique vacationing experience!

Located at the top of Catskill Animal Sanctuary’s 110-acre property, where it has stood since 1813, the Homestead features original wide-plank floors, exposed brick walls, gorgeous fireplaces, and tasteful furnishings.

Three guest rooms and a suite are available. The three guest rooms are named after beloved animal residents and share a common bath. The Rambo Room has a king bed, the Paulie Room has a queen bed, and the Dino Room has a twin bed. The Samson Suite features a kitchenette with refrigerator and stove, a spacious living room, a small queen bedroom, and a private bathroom. (Twin-sized air mattresses are available to accommodate additional guests in the Rambo room or Samson suite.)

Homestead guests receive a complimentary vegan breakfast, a VIP pass to spend time with nearly 300 rescued farmed animals at CAS, and, if you’re with us on a weekend between April-October, a complimentary tour of the Sanctuary.

We also offer guided tours during your stay throughout the year. Tours are individually scheduled with our Homestead manager, Erica Ritter. Please contact Erica at

In accordance with our mission, and out of respect to the animals who live here, the Homestead is strictly vegan and non-smoking. Please do not bring any non-vegan food on Sanctuary property. Thank you for your cooperation.

CAS Membership

To reserve a room at the Homestead you must be a CAS member (a local county rule, not ours, we promise!) Luckily, signing up for a membership is easy to do on our website or by calling our business office. If you make a reservation and are not yet a member, you will be charged a membership fee. Not sure of your membership status? Give us a call at 845-336-8447 x202, M-F 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Note: CAS membership is included in animal sponsorships.

Doggie Guests

Well-behaved dogs who are not aggressive towards people or animals, and who can be left in your room without excessive barking, are welcome at an additional fee of $20/dog/night. A maximum of 2 dogs per room can be accommodated. In fairness to our animal friends, dogs are not allowed beyond the Homestead grounds; Homestead guests must visit our rescued animals without them.

Handicapped & WiFi Info

Our guest rooms and bath are located on the second floor and regretfully are not handicapped accessible.

WiFi is available throughout the Homestead.
