My husband and I visited Halsey House this weekend and it was absolutely lovely! Our room was elegant and beautiful. We were in the Serenity which has a water feature .... very soothing. In fact the room was very restful with a comfortable chair and a throw that was perfect for my afternoon interlude. And always important in my estimation,... More

We really appreciate your comments as you are so familiar with B&Bs and we are glad that we were able to hold the bar high for all of our guests.

The Davids are the perfect hosts for this beautiful B&B ! The rooms were beautiful and the house is impeccable. Our only regret is not being able to stay longer. The breakfast is DIVINE and the quietness of the Inn was so relaxing. I really hope we are able to go back and visit. Also its close to the main... More

My partner and I recently stayed at the Halsey House for 3 nights to celebrate a milestone b-day of mine.

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.

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 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.

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!
