We visited Halsey House for 2 nights, and couldn't have been happier with our choice! Upon arrival we were greeted warmly, taken on a tour of the home, and shown our room. The entire property was very well maintained, clean, and inviting. Our hosts,David and David, went out of their way to make us feel at home. It was obvious... More

It was an unseasonably cold weekend but your presence in Halsey House helped keep it warm. We did not envy you your snowshoeing given the weather but are happy for you as you had wanted to enjoy the outdoors...maybe next time the snowy owl will stick around for some photo ops. Thank you for the kind review, we love sharing... More

Beautiful old home with lots of history, but yet with modern amenities. Great to come down to a delicious breakfast to find the fireplace lit (nice touch). Bedrooms and common areas are beautifully decorated. Very gracious hosts.

I found Halsey House online. It's always difficult to know if seeing it in person will come near what you see online. Halsey House exceeded any expectation we could have had!! The house is beautifully decorated and kept in the tradition to how it was originally built. The hosts were so friendly and accommodating. My husband and I stayed in... More

We so enjoyed having you here as guests and chatting about your somewhat nomadic life and your years in Texas. One of the great rewards of being a B&B owner is getting to meet new friends and sharing our home with them, even if just for a short time. We especially like for our guests to enjoy all of the...

Thank you David and David for a wonderful Valentine's Day weekend. The B&B was spotless, the beds comfy and the rooms toasty warm. We stayed in Margaret's Retreat and the 2 person spa tub was fabulous! I can't even describe breakfast...other than to say it was absolutely delicious. Halsey House is a bit more pricey than others in the area,... More

Margaret's Retreat is one of our two rooms with a whirlpool tub; the tub in Indulgence is even larger and also offers a two person spa shower. We do pride ourselves on cleanliness and enjoy offering breakfasts that are memorable and perhaps a bit different from what one might find elsewhere. The raspberry soufflé with white chocolate ganache seemed to... More

Thank you for the very nice review; we are so glad that you enjoyed your brief stay here at Halsey House as well as a trip back in time at the reopened Rongo for good food, beverage and music.

We stayed at the Halsey House just a few months ago during the fall, and loved it so much that we came back again for a winter weekend getaway. David and David were incredible hosts as usual.

My wife and I really enjoyed the Halsey House in the room with a fireplace. It was warm and cozy on a cold winter weekend. The breakfasts and coffee were top notch as well. The off season around Trumansburg and nearby towns made it quiet and relaxing to taste wines and eat good food. I would definitely recommend this place.

Thank you, we enjoyed having you both here as guests and pleased that you stayed for sufficient time to justify the trip from Brooklyn, so as to enjoy what this amazing area has to offer, even in the off season.

Great, our coffee has made TA reviews. We do have our own blend from Mister G Coffee Company and are so happy that you enjoyed it.

Thanks for the encouragement to write a cookbook...perhaps one of these days that will happen but at the moment, I am happy to have guests simply enjoy the fresh organic foods that we present to them along with a menu that we think is a bit different from what one normally finds in a B&B.
