The Guesthouse at Woodstock Sanctuary
“We loved spending time with the animals and away from the city’s hustle and bustle…. We will see you again! Thank you.” Peter and Jessica Levine, Staten Island
“Congratulations on creating the perfect haven for stressed out New Yorkers!” Marcus, NYC
“Thank you so much for having us at the B&B! The Olivia Room is so great, and we loved sharing the bed with super sweet Leon. Waking up to see the animals out enjoying life is the best thing ever. Great way to spend a birthday!” Melissa and Emily, Jersey City
“The Guesthouse is pure heaven. The room was beautiful and the bed very comfortable. The farm is inspiring and it was great to wake up and see the animals grazing about…” Larry, Erica, and Sam, Brooklyn
“…thanks again for making our stay special. I wish we had suggestions on how to make it better, but it’s impossible to improve upon perfection.” Paul Raffin
“Spectacular view from the front porch of the goat pasture & mountain as a backdrop. What a great way to start your day while sipping some tea and gazing out. The whole place is immaculate & I love the layout.” David and Sheri, Brooklyn
After over a year of eco-friendly renovations to our pre-Civil War farmhouse, Woodstock Farm Animal Sanctuary is proud to present The Guesthouse. This über-charming B&B is owned and operated by the Sanctuary, thanks to a wonderful and generous supporter who purchased it. The profits earned go directly to the care of our 200+ rescued farm animals and to our advocacy work on behalf of farmed animals everywhere.
The Guesthouse currently offers a hearty, serve-yourself vegan continental breakfast, the luxury of restored claw foot tubs with showers, free WiFi, live rooster “alarm clocks” next door—with all of our other wonderful rescued farm animal friends just steps away! You won’t believe the view from the covered porch, where you can kick back in rocking chairs and watch the sun set over the Catskill Mountains with happy animals roaming in the pastures. Note that if you’re allergic to cats this is not the place for you (see below).
Due to some kooky IRS regulations for nonprofits you must be a member of WFAS to stay at The Guesthouse, but membership is very affordable and entitles you to other benefits which quickly offset the cost. Because membership is tax-deductible and the room isn’t, they need to be separate transactions and you will need to become a member before booking the room.
The Guesthouse warmly welcomes well-behaved canine companion animals on a case-by-case basis for an additional $15 per night. They must remain on leash and with their guardians on site at all times and cannot venture on to shelter grounds. All visiting dogs must also be cat-friendly as The Guesthouse is home to resident cats Errol and Leon.
You can use our online booking system to check availability or make a reservation. Alternatively, you can contact us via phone for reservation assistance or questions at (845) 679-6928 (please, no calls after 8pm).
Below are the three rooms that we are currently booking. The rooms are named after beloved farm animal friends who are no longer with us but who have inspired us deeply.
If you require wheelchair access we can most likely accommodate you with advance notice, although we are not 100% ADA compliant. Please inquire for details.
All rooms are subject to 8% NY State sales tax and 2% Ulster County lodging tax. A 2-night minimum on weekends and 3-night minimum on holiday weekends is required. The Guesthouse maintains a strict vegan policy and is available exclusively to WFAS members. Book your room here.
