About Us

We’re Greg and Tony, a couple together 25 years who both have a lifelong passion to help animals. We’ve rescued several animals and have always said that we want to retire to a farm where we can focus on our rescue efforts full-time. Wattles Inn and Wattles Inn the Middle were created as part of our plan and serves two very important functions. First it allows other animal lovers and advocates a home away from home where they can visit our sanctuary and even pitch in and muck some stalls if they want. Secondly 100% of the proceeds from Wattles Inn and Wattles Inn the Middle go to our animal sanctuary, Broome Animal Sanctuary.

Things to do locally while visiting the heart of Schoharie County:

Hike Vroman's Nose * Kayak in Franklinton Vlaie  * For the water park lover splash around at Zoom Flume Water Park * Explore Howe's Cavern * Sample libations produced by our local distilleries, wineries and breweries on the Schoharie County Beverage Trail * Huyck Preserve has 12 miles of trails, lake and waterfalls open daily to the public * Hit the mountains and snow ski at Windham or Hunter Mountain.


Places to eat:

Toto, I've a feeling we're not in Kansas anymore...you're right.  You are in the Heart of Schoharie County where the produce is locally grown and farm fresh and delicious, but the kitchens close early. Here are some local goooooood eats, but keep in mind though get there early or get nothing at all.



Prefer to do your own cooking:  Wattles Inn the Middle apartments have self-serve kitchens so bring your own groceries. In the mood for some farm fresh seasonal vegetables? Ask us what we have available in our garden. We do not use any chemicals and our pesticide service has over 100 legs and are covered in feathers.


Wattles Inn the Middle is located in one of the most beautiful places in America, The Catskill Mountains or as the locals like to call them,”Them Blue Mountains". One of the most wondrous things about the Catskill region is the change of season.  To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven. Come stay with us at Wattles Inn the Middle and experience the beautiful change of seasons and breathtaking foliage change, go apple or pumpkin picking or just completely disconnect and leave the world behind.
