A very enjoyable stay. David and David are excellent hosts. Breakfasts were amazing. They truly take pride in the well decorated house and are eager to assist. Rooms and baths are comfortable. My wife and I will return.

The Davids could not have been more welcoming and accommodating to us. They are wonderful hosts in all respects. The house itself is beautiful and evocative of an earlier more elegant time. There's so much history waiting to be explored at the house itself and in the wonderful T-burg/Finger Lakes area. I can't recommend a visit to Halsey House enough.... More

The Finger Lakes area truly is a treasure with so many things to do/see and Trumansburg is a little gem in its own right with friendly residents and business owners, interesting shops and fine dining and a short drive to so many attractions, especially Taughannock Falls. We do hope that you will return and enjoy our home and hospitality. Thank... More

The David's provided 5 star service from the moment we arrived. David Blake is an incredible creative chef and produces fabulous breakfasts and David Wren is the consumate entertainer who kept the group entertained with story after story. If you are looking at other places in the area, then don't as this is truly a 5 star experience. Tony &... More

The Davids thank you for your kind words; we loved having you here as our guests and sharing the joys of the Finger Lakes and Halsey House B&B with you.

The Davids have created a warm, charming, delectable experience of comfortable rest that leaves you wishing for more. I do not exaggerate. The home is lovely, clean and full of amenities, but it is the hosts themselves that endear the property to the traveler. Halsey House is situated at the entrance of Taughannock Falls, which is convenient for the tourists.... More

Thank your so much for the kind words regarding the "experience" offered by "The Davids" as part of your stay at Halsey House. We try our best to create a warm and relaxing home for our guests and believe that the "experience" factor pushes Halsey House up a notch from other B&Bs. Because we so love this grand old home...

We stayed at Halsey House for 2 nights during Ithaca College's graduation. Once you arrive, the beauty and grandness is impossible to miss. But the best part is inside this stately, clean, impressive B&B. The rooms and common areas are spacious, incredibly clean, impeccably appointed, and second to none. The breakfasts were unique and flavorful and quite satisfying. And the... More

Graduation is such a special and celebratory time that we feel honored to be a part of the memories it creates. The smiles, laughs and hugs of proud families and equally proud graduates makes this old farm house swell with the warmth of a fireplace in winter. At the same time, it can be a somewhat sad as we say... More

The only downside of our stay at Halsey House was that it was only for one night. What a beautiful home and such lovely, warm, helpful owners, David & David. Breakfast was delicious and perfectly balanced, the room and home in general was very comfortable and cozy and elegant, as well as immaculately clean. The location was perfect, too, for... More

Like the two of you, many of our guests come to Halsey House because they need time away from the kids, parents, job, the grind of daily life and time to "relax and reconnect".

My husband and I have stayed in a number of B&Bs. This one is outstanding. The home and grounds are extremely well kept and clean. The rooms are all elegant (including the common rooms), the period furniture is lovely without the worn & "dusty" appearance that I have seen in a number of B&Bs. Our hosts told us that the... More

We loved having you both here and appreciate such kind words especially from experienced B&B travelers. We do wish that the weather had been a bit more Spring-like as the Finger Lakes Region of upstate NY is truly spectacular when the temperature is warm, the skies are clear, the waterfalls are flowing freely and the fields are exhibiting their crops....
