We stayed one night at Halsey House after a great day of spring skiing at Greek Peak, just 40 minutes away. The house is in pristine condition, lovingly cared for by David and Dave. The room was comfortable and spacious, the gas fire kept us cozy, and the enormous shower was restorative.

Room Tip: We stayed in Elegance, but had a tour of the rest of the rooms once all had been vacated. Each has i...

We wish more skiers would make the trip to Halsey House as it really is not that far away. So glad you liked the showers, they are all good sized and several have multiple heads to ease away tense and tired muscles...perfect after a day on the slopes. Great seeing you both.

My husband and I stayed two nights in the Indulgence Room. It was wonderful! David and David were wonderful hosts and the breakfasts were amazing. As the parents of two small children, this was just the retreat we needed from our busy day to day routine.

We were so sorry that you and Dan had to leave before enjoying our Bananas Foster French Toast; perhaps you can find time to get away again and we will be sure to cook up something special (hoping that Dan will then be able to eat more than egg white). We send our best wishes to him for a successful half marathon. Remind him of the great near-by running trails that will be open come warmed weather.

This was the best Bed and Breakfast we have stayed at. David and David were the best host and the food was excellent. The house was just beautiful. It was a very relaxing time. Planning on returning next year.

Last weekend my wife and I joined a group of friends who had reserved all the rooms at the Halsey House. Our stay was outstanding and Dave and Dave were tremendous hosts as they went over-the-top to make us feel welcome. They provided suggestions for local wineries and dinner options while also asking if members of our group needed any special accommodations. Each member of our group raved about their room including the comfort of the beds and the outstanding bathrooms. Finally, the breakfast was absolutely delicious! Our stay was perfect and we are already looking forward to planning another trip to take over the Halsey House. Thank you Dave and Dave for being such exceptional hosts.

We appreciate your kind words, especially that you felt welcomed and comfortable during your stay and for the celebration of your birthday. We enjoyed carrying over the Cayuga Wine Trail "Mardi Gras" Special event with our breakfast on Sunday which included King Cake, Bananas Foster French Toast with Rum Syrup, Cheese Grits with Andouille Sausage and mini Crab Maison on Endive.

Dave and Dave were wonderful hosts. The indulgence room was great. Breakfast was delicious! You are treated like friends from the minute you walk in. Close to Ithaca with many places to eat. Recommend staying at the Halsey House to anyone visiting the area.

I booked the Margaret's Retreat room for my parents as a little overnight getaway from all of the things going on in their lives. They could not have been happier, with vivid details about how welcoming Dave and David were, the beautiful room all the way to the delicious breakfast in the morning. I plan to stay here myself next time I am in Ithaca. I am very happy with the decision to book here.

Room Tip: Margaret's Retreat is great
