Most Amazing Weekend

My husband and I just celebrated our 1st wedding anniversary at The Gray Barn and we had the most fantastic time. The Host was incredibly friendly and knowledgable and makes a mean vegan breakfast! It was such a treat to be able to spend time with the amazing animal residents at the sanctuary. We will definitely be back soon. We cannot recommend The Gray Barn & The Woodstock Farm Sanctuary enough!

This place is heaven!

As someone who's visited a lot of sanctuaries, I'm always in love with the opportunity to meet the magical inhabitants. And while Woodstock Farm Animal Sanctuary definitely delivers on that and is one of the best out there, the Gray Barn takes this experience to a whole other level. The barn is a chic, stunning oasis in the middle of the sanctuary. The design alone will have you gobsmacked and even better, the design and accommodation are comfortable. From organic bedding to eco-friendly practices to vegan toiletries, this place, coupled with the fact that you're supporting a great cause and waking up to and enjoying an idyllic Catskills experience, is a destination I recommend to everyone I know, vegan and non-vegan alike. Leigh, the Hospitality Coordinator, is just that - hospitable as hell. Her homemade breakfasts are divine and worth waking early for (and epic! Come hungry!), the kitchen is constantly stocked with vegan and GF snacks, teas, creamers, coffee and other goodies, and the Barn is clean, airy, and always full of friendly faces (animal and people alike). I can't say enough good things about this magical place. I just hope when word catches on, there will still be room for me to visit again soon.

I gave my daughter Sam a stay at the barn for her 25th Birthday. She came home and said the stay changed her life. Leigh and the staff and the animals were all so amazing!!!!! I can't wait to go myself.

Absolutely loved my stay! Came fort birthday with a friend and was a great way to spend a special day. As a local to the area of been the the sanctuary before but the gray barn brought a whole new level to it. Felt very private even though other people are staying there. Breakfast in the morning was a dream with a lovely host! Woodstock Animal Sanctuary is doing great work, I was glad to have help supported it!

The Gray Barn was amazing....the berry pie awaiting us when we arrived, the cleanliness, the design, THE BREAKFAST!, the sanctuary, the tour guide, the animals (esp the pigs with their sunscreen on!) It was all impressive, amazing and I cannot wait to tell others and go back again! Thank you so much!

Truly a Sanctuary in every sense of the word

We had a very short stay at the Gray Barn - our only regret was that it couldn't have been longer. The peaceful and lovely setting was just awe-inspiring, and we loved the calm inside and outside. The breakfast was just heavenly. We loved our room, and the tour of the Sanctuary was just wonderful. We loved meeting the animals and hearing their backstories. We can't wait to return.

A wonderful weekend

The Gray Barn is a great place to stay with wonderful design. The visit to the sanctuary is very special. While touring, I thought, I'm not doing enough for animal welfare, am I. It can be hard to think about. I don't think I'd ever pet a pig before. It was magical.

I have never stayed at such a beautiful, CLEAN, fresh, new, peaceful, and happy place. I would live there if I could. It's a mix of architectural digest and animal art. The staff is unbelievably kind and helpful and the breakfast is insanely delicious to vegans and non vegans alike. THANK YOU for making me feel at home!!
