Country Kitty News
The Country Kitty B&B was featured in Cat Fancy magazine (June, 2010) as one of ten places around the US to “board your pet in luxury”. “There is no magazine more identified with cats than Cat Fancy and to be selected as one of the most “Cat Friendly” destinations has us smiling from ear to ear”, said B&B owner Lynn Conlon.
In keeping with the popular magazine’s 45th anniversary, the article “Away We Go” features 45 assorted destinations. In addition to The Country Kitty B&B and nine other stylish boarding facilities around the country, writer Stacie Mantle selected a variety of pet-friendly resorts and hotels plus resorts and (people) B&Bs that have their own “house cats” to comfort the weary traveler.
“These destinations”, wrote Mantle, “are among the elite few that truly understand the concept of ‘cat friendly’ ”.

What Our Guests Are Saying
“I wanted to tell you how much I appreciated your hospitality at the Country Kitty B&B while my mom and dad were on vacation. Being five years old and never being away from my parents and my four siblings, I was quite scared and nervous. But your beautiful B&B made me feel right at home. And your warmth and caring nature made me feel like part of the "family". Mom and Dad say that when they go away again, I can come and stay with you then too. Love, "The Pud" (Puddy Tat)"
