My wife and I enjoyed an elegant weekend get-a-way in the Finger Lakes area due in large part to the hospitality of David & David at Halsey House B & B. We stayed in the Indulgence room and so glad that we indulged. The ambience at Halsey House is a perfect blend of country elegance and sophisticated charm. We were... 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". We hope that, after a few nights here enjoying the warmth and comfort of our home, that guests will depart reenergized and anxious for a return... More

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....

What a fabulous place to stay. The Davids are so friendly, and their house is absolutely incredible. And the food......I can't describe how delicious it was. They were so helpful in directing us where to eat and what to do. I would definitely come back here again and again!!!!! This was our first stay in a B&B, and they set... More

We love our home and sharing it with others, we love the area and find great pleasure in helping our guests discover the wonders of the area, both natural and man-made...great waterfalls and gorges, wineries, luscious food, gorgeous lakes, bright blue skies (most of the time),friendly...

My wife and I just returned from a 3 night stay at the Halsey House. We felt welcome from the very beginning as one of the innkeepers greeted us by name in the parking lot and assisted in carrying our bags to the room. At this time we were also given a tour of the building and any breakfast dislikes... More

Halsey House is a mere 10 miles from downtown Ithaca and then but a short drive to the campuses of Cornell University and Ithaca College. Our guests find that the distance is not a significant factor in determining where to stay; rather the relative quiet of the country, the rolling farm fields and vineyards create a more welcoming environment and...

It was our first trip to a B&B but it won't be our last to this one! The place is immaculate with innkeepers, David and Dave's hard work. They are warm and welcoming and most accomodating. The food is home made and A+. Just a very beautiful experience. We cannot wait to return!

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.

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!!

We so enjoyed having you here as guests and chatting about your somewhat nomadic life and your years in Texas.

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.

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
