Staying at the Halsey House was akin to staying with a dear relative in an elegant home filled with beautiful antiques. The atmosphere was serene and comfortable and the rooms were fitted with luxurious linens and accessories. Breakfast, served on beautiful china, was delicious. Needless to say, David and David were superior hosts and rather spoiled us for other B&Bs.... More

We so enjoyed your stay and hated to see you go; we hope your trip to Niagara Falls was wonderful and your trip home uneventful. We do try our best to make our home a place of calm and comfort for all of our guests so that they can relax after a busy day exploring the Finger Lakes Region. David... More

My wife and I just returned from another 3 night Stay at the Halsey House. Immediately upon arriving we were again cordially met and greeted at our car by one of the innkeepers. Even though it had been 4 months since our last visit, our conversation seemed like it had only been a week or so. After being assisted with... More

It was wonderful to see you both again and we agree, it seems like but a few weeks ago that you were here to visit your daughter and enjoy her dance recital.

David and David have thought about every want and need that their guests may have during their stay. The water coolers, fridges on every floor, soft drinks and coffee available at all times, a fridge packed with soft drinks. Special dietary foods do not upset them, just let them know what you can or cannot eat. The breakfast was outstanding.... More

You certainly had a busy weekend here in the Finger Lakes Region and we hope that you will return as there is still much to see and do. You would have enjoyed the Finger Lakes Cider House to taste some of the local hard ciders (that go great with Lively Run Goat Cheese), another of the little hidden gems (like... More

My husband and I, along with family and friends rented all 5 rooms for the occasion of our daughters' wedding. We were all of the same opinion: the rooms were elegant, both breakfasts were timely served, beautifully presented, creative and delicious. Our hosts, Dave and David, were very accommodating, helpful and cheerful. (They had us laughing at times.) They allowed... More

We too enjoyed the stories and hearing all abut the wedding at... More

This is our second trip to the Halsey House, but our first with owners David and David. They were incredible hosts and the breakfasts were amazing! David should definitely start writing his breakfast cookbook! The house is clean and comfy with little touches like tea and homemade cookies or little bags of snacks put out for the guests. The room... More

Returning guests are always a special treat and this instance, you returned to find two new innkeepers but still the clean, warm and relaxing environment that you had enjoyed previously. We are delighted that you enjoyed the breakfasts and the "little treats" as we do our best to ensure that guests' needs are met and then some. As far as... More

David and David made our stay at Halsey House very comfortable. The breakfasts were delicious and they were the consummate hosts.

We love this area of the USA and delight in sharing some of its history as well as the fine dining spots, wineries, natural attractions and hidden gems with our guests as we want them to have a true appreciation of B&Bs and the Finger Lakes Region. Several of our guests have referred to this as "The Davids Experience." Thanks... More

The Finger Lakes Region of NY State is truly wonderful but especially so here in the Tompkins County area where we have so many waterfalls and gorges, Cayuga Lake, great dining, arts, music, theatre and of course wine, hard cider, other adult beverages and cheese!

Could not have been more perfect. David and David were wonderful hosts...made us feel like family. Unqualified highest recommendation! You owe it to yourself to stay with them. Their restoration of the property is delightful...as them about their "chair."

Ahh, the "chair." the most talked about object in Halsey House, subject of many "selfies" and photo ops and occasional misguided seating efforts (it is a chair but NOT for use as such) and the cause of many smiles, laughs and multiple "oh no". Thank you for making your review about the totality of the experience here at Halsey House... More
