We only stayed one night but were sorry to leave and will go back. Each room is thoughtfully and beautifully appointed with really comfortable bed and spacious bath. Everyone meets for breakfast at the same time, leading to lively conversation and exchange of information on where to go nearby. The hosts were great.

We were sorry to see you go as well and do hope that you will return as there is so much to see and do in the Finger Lakes Region of New York...hiking, water activities, art, music, good food and wines, the list can go on and on so give yourself at least a few days to enjoy this wonderful... More

Meticulously maintained building and grounds, staffed by gracious hosts, serving well thought out and carefully prepared gourmet breakfasts. Three nights there allowed us to truly enjoy this beautiful home and the surrounding lake, waterfalls, vineyards, and villages. Highly recommend.

We appreciate your comments and thank you for the same. The organic strawberry and basil soup with our own lime sorbet has been a pre-entree breakfast hit so far and represents our on- going efforts to provide fresh locally farmed produce and fruit to our guests and now we are approaching the peach, plum and corn season so our minds...

David and Dave's Halsey House is one of the best bed and breakfasts we have ever stayed in and we have been to many. It felt like 5 star hotel accommodations and the house is beautiful. We actually stayed in 2 different rooms throughout our stay and both were great- updated, very clean, and comfortable. David and Dave were delightful... More

Dave & David were very knowledgeable with things to do in the area which helped us plan things to do from out of town. Breakfast in the morning was delicious every morning! Beautiful, well kept house as well. Updated rooms yet still has the B & B charm, very comfortable. My husband and I plan to stay there again and... More

Halsey House is conveniently located for both Ithaca and the wine trails on Cayuga and Seneca Lakes yet is rural enough to be away from the occasionally more hurried pace of Ithaca. Our recommendations are based upon our own experiences and those of our guests and we are so pleased that you agreed with them and had an enjoyable B&B... More

Last minute wedding anniversary plans brought us to the Halsey House and we were not disappointed. We stayed in the Elegance room that was well appointed, exceptionally clean and comfortable.

Excellent all the way around. Very clean, charming, food excellent and owners friendly and interesting. Nice grounds and very close to the Taughannock Falls and the town of Trumansburg which has a wonderful restaurant. We recommend Halsey House highly.

This was the perfect honeymoon getaway for myself and my husband. The home is historically stunning, secluded from other homes, and with perfect access to a variety of the wonders of the area. For our first Bed and Breakfast, my husband and I were unsure what to expect. Now, the two David's set the bar incredibly high!! The home is... More

We so enjoyed having you both here and even more so that we had a chance to chat and get to know you (despite being fans of a certain unmentioned hockey team).

My husband and I stayed at the Halsey House 5 years ago and retuned again this year for reunion weekend. We stayed in the Serenity Room both times. It has a wonderfully comfortable king size bed and a pretty lighted water feature. Halsey House is 20-25 minutes from Cornell University. The house is absolutely lovely and the Davids are wonderful... More

We recently stayed at Halsey house and thoroughly enjoyed it. The two David's were very attentive to our needs. I'm a very picky eater and when David asked if we had any special diet needs I was embarrassed to say I don't like fruits. David asked if I liked sorbet which I do, and he made me a delicious sorbet... More

No one should ever be afraid or embarrassed to express their food allergies or dislikes. While we do not have a commercial kitchen and are not trained chefs/cooks, we do our best to provide tasty meals for our guests with the foods they enjoy as we do not like to see guests leave unsatisfied. We were happy to accommodate you... More
