Halsey House was hands down, the best B&B I have ever stayed at. The room was absolutely marvelous, very comfortable and very homey feeling. The king-size bed, bathtub that fits two, and shower with jets was just breathtaking. If I could have moved in, I would have stayed forever. For me, the little things are what count too.. there were... More

My husband and I had a delightful two-night stay at Halsey House here in the "off" season. We toured wineries, ate wieners, and viewed waterfalls. All possible because there is very little traffic this time of year -- we drove up from Washington DC. Halsey House is a spacious, elegant home with lots of history. David and David will happily...

David and Dave were excellent hosts, friendly and informative and great ambassadors for their region. Lots of interesting discussions with them and other guests at breakfast. Breakfasts' were Michelin in their attention to detail and interesting ingredients and flavours. Love to say that we will be back but its over 3,000 miles away. Who knows?
