My wife and I spent the past weekend at Halsey House. For the specifics of the property please see my previous Halsey House reviews. We have been staying here for three years now when visiting Ithaca due to our daughter in Cornell. Even after graduation we plan to continue visiting the Ithaca area due to our love for the Halsey...

We rented a room for friends who were coming in from out of the town. Halsey House hosts pulled out all the stops to make our friends feel welcome and accommodated our continually changing itinerary/ETA. The rooms are generous in size- very warm and inviting. The house is Victorian in style with a very warm, welcoming feel. We were delightfully...

We are honored when our neighbors in Trumansburg and nearby communities select to have family and friends stay at Halsey House when there are so many other options in the area from which to choose. When we are able to do so we do welcome the referring family to join their friends/family for a breakfast with us as that is...

A family birthday celebration brought us to Trumansburg and wanting to be closer to the action than if we stayed in Ithaca we decided to try a Tburg Bed and Breakfast near the party. We always pass The Halsey House on the way to our daughters home and have always been curious about it. It's so lovely from the outside...

Halsey House is truly exceptional. The house, property and setting are beautiful, the guest rooms comfortable and luxurious, the hosts entertaining and kind, and the food imaginative and delicious. My concern about reporting this is that there may be no room at the inn when I want to return!

With a review like that, there should always be room here for you; that said, it is still wise to book well in advance, especially during the busy season. Visiting our website and otherwise contacting us beforehand can answer many questions, learn of any specials, obtain information about activities, tours, dining, etc. as we welcome the opportunity to assist in...

It is such fun to meet parents of the freshmen class at Cornell and Ithaca College when they stay here at Halsey House as the area is usually new to them and we welcome the opportunity to ease their concerns and make them feel at home. If we are lucky, we see them over four years and shed tear and...

Stayed at Halsey House for 3 nights. All was wonderful. House is beautiful, rooms comfy and clean. Owners treated us like family. Breakfasts were absolutely amazing! The recommendations for best local dining and wineries all turned out to be true. Overall, if you want to have an experience of living a Downton Abbey life for a number of days -...

Downton Abbey...what a compliment. Halsey House is not quite so grand but perhaps a bit warmer and more welcoming and we are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay. We came into this venture with one primary goal: to offer a home and hospitality in keeping with how we would like to be treated were we the guests. It sounds...

If you can't decide where to stay in the Finger Lakes area, consider the Halsey House! An easy drive to wherever with the BEST breakfast ever. The Davids were warm and inviting and accommodating. Great stay!

Yeah, more kudos for our breakfasts We do change our menus with the seasons as we rely heavily upon our local farms, orchards and dairies in order to bring the freshest possible to our table for guests. Currently, apples are the primary stars be they baked, broiled and bruleed, made into a delicious compote for our puff pancakes, used in...

Most B&Bs do represent a change from the expected decor and art of corporate hotel and motel chains and we are happy to share what we have with our guests. So many have stories associated with them so we could spend hours relating them...and often do. It is easy for us to be hospitable and delightful when guests like you...

You were in our smallest room (Chamber) but it is cozy and comfortable and the one your innkeepers most often go to when the house is empty of guests and we just want to feel wrapped up in the warmth of that room that was the nursery back when the house was first lived in.
