“Fantastic B&B in a lovely part of the world”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2009

We stayed for 2 nights with KC and Mitch at Halsey and wished we could have stayed a couple more. The house has been sympathetically decorated in keeping with its history. Our room was very comfortable and had everything we needed, including free soft drinks, snacks and comprehensive DVD collection. Internet access is provided by the use of a shared laptop which is really helpful. Mitch gave us plenty of ideas for places to walk and eat. Breakfast was excellent and kept us going till dinner time!

The Halsey House was just gorgeous. The decor was perfect, including an extremely up-to-date bathroom with the softest towels. The bed was awesome and the breakfast was delicious. Mitch and KC, the innkeepers, were so friendly. Additionally, the Halsey House is just a short walk from the Taughanock Falls, which was breathtaking.

My boyfriend and I stayed here for one night and absolutely loved it! Our room (Margaret's Retreat ) was so comfortable and impeccably decorated. The innkeepers have done a wonderful job making this beautiful old house (built in the 1820s) into luxurious and romantic accomodations -- gorgeous furnishings (we had a beautiful 4 poster bed and hand-carved armoire in our room, comfy robes, 2 person jacuzzi, romantic albums in the CD player, etc. It was a treat! We'd recommend getting a reservation for dinner at Hazelnuts in Trumansburg. Really delicious and just a few miles from the B&B. Would also recommend taking a dip in the swimming hole across the street!

My wife and I stayed at the Hasley House for our one year wedding anniversary at the end of July. From the moment we arrived Mitch met us at our car and introduced himself and offered to help us with our bags. Throughout our stay, Mitch and KC were great hosts. The breakfest's were very tastey, loved those pecan muffins, KC. We stayed in the Margaret's retreat room and it was fantastic. We enjoyed the jacuzzi tub. Mitch and KC have spent alot of time focusing on all the little details i.e teas, snacks, water vase, wine glasses, fresh towles every day, blow dryer in the room and DVD's. which made the stay more enjoyable.

We also visted Watkins Glen State Park which we would highly recommend. The Gorge is amazing.

Mitch had previously recommended a few restaurants to dine in. We decided on two restaurants in Ithica ....the first one was the Maghony Grill (great patio) and the other was Za Za's (awesome pumpkin ravioli). They were both great.

This was my second stay with KC and Mitch at Halsey House and will certainly not be my last. From the moment of our arrival, my friends and I were greeted as if by old friends glad to see us once again. The B&B is beautifully and tasefully decorated, with the common rooms offering lots to do or the comforts to just sit back and relax. The guest rooms are also tasefully decorated and the beds and linens extremely comfortable, providing a sancutuary offering escape after a day visiting one of the numerous, local outdoor attractions. The porches, patio and grounds offer a tranquil spot to kick back and enjoy some conversation with friends. KC's talents in the kitchen, coupled with Mitch's storytelling and humor make the "breakfast" part of this B&B a real standout. I recommend anyone looking for a getaway in New York State to check out Halsey House, as you won't be disappointed!

Beautiful restored B&B with the warmest host. Gourmet breakfasts are the best. Each room is unique and tastefully appointed. Beds are big and comfy and can't way to go back.

This was our first B&B and as such we were apprehensive. As it turned out we were absolutely delighted.
The web site was right on target from the food to the facilities. No fake pictures here.
K.C. is a wonderful cook and Mitch kept us all entertained with a dry sense of humor and no one parted strangers.
If you visit the area of New York and you don't stay here, you will miss out on a wonderful experience.
