My partner and I recently stayed at the Halsey House for 3 nights to celebrate a milestone b-day of mine. The Davids (owners/hosts of this B & B) were very friendly, helpful, and provided us with a lot of information about the Finger Lakes area and about the local history. We stayed in the Indulgence Room, which was lovely. The... More

The Indulgence rom is very popular especially for secial occasions like birthdays; the huge whirlpool tub, two person spa shower and king bed make for a comfortable stay and our breakfats send guests off to visit and enjoy the Finger Lakes with a full tummy. We love what we do and love it when guests appreciate our efforts. Glad yu... More

From the moment we got out of our car, we were treated like family. We had never stayed in Trumansburg, but David really helped us out. We learned where to find the right dining and swim spots which was greatly appreciated. The place is magnificent and there is no short cuts to the amenities. It was pure luxury to have... More

The back porch is a draw for so many guests and we love it ourselves, especially first thing in the morning and then at dusk into early evening; the patio with waterfall feature is also very nice but as it has little shade, the porch is more welcoming in the hot weather. We do pride ourselves on cleanliness and comfort... More

This past weekend, we made our stay in Trumansburg while attending a wedding in the beautiful countryside. We chose the Halsey House from the many recommended places in the area, because the reviews were so good, and the location was perfect! We stayed in Margaret's Retreat, a rich and beautifully appointed suite, that included a jacuzzi tub, a gorgeous four-poster... More

What a treat that we had you as guests and you confirmed what has been a tradition of sorts when it comes to our guests from the greater Rochester area: you are all great guests who take in so much of the attractions and fine dining spots here just 90 minutes away from home.

My husband and I stayed at Halsey House for a mini-honeymoon after our wedding. The rooms are luxurious and romantic (we were in Margaret's Retreat, which has a big four-poster bed and a Jacuzzi tub big enough for two) and David and David are wonderful hosts! They know the area well and can recommend lots of great spots for you.... More

We are so glad that you chose Halsey House as a part of your mini moon and more so that you enjoyed your stay and hope to return. Margaret's Retreat and Indulgence are our more popular rooms because of the large whirlpool tubs although with the severe drought, we are now asking guests to help conserve water so the tubs...

I cannot say enough about our stay at the halsey house. We stayed over July 4th weekend, and from the beginning were treated to the wonderful hospitality of the David's. From great conversation about the area and what to do to the yummiest breakfasts in the morning - everything was fantastic. I cannot recommend staying there enough!

We do pride ourselves on our hospitality as, after all, we are in that field and if we cannot be friendly and hospitable, then we should be doing something else.

My girlfriend and I were in Ithaca for a wedding and opted to stay at the Halsey House for two nights based on a recommendation on the wedding website.

The Halsey House is gorgeous, and you couldn't ask for more gracious and incredibly knowledgable hosts. In addition to making our stay memorable, David and David helped us to make decisions about where to eat and hike, making the entire trip wonderful. Breakfast was to die for!
