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. For us, this is fun , we enjoy making our guests feel at home without imposing, we love to provide interesting and tasty breakfasts that are a bit outside of...

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. This was my first time staying at a proper Bed and Breakfast and it's hard to put into words how welcomed the Davids made us feel. Every piece of our stay...

My wife and I had a wonderful two-night stay at the Halsey House B&B. The historic property is beautifully maintained inside and outside and it's conveniently located near Ithaca, Watkins Glen, state parks and other area attractions. The innkeepers offer exceptional hospitality from the initial welcome to the breakfast and beyond. They are also a wealth of knowledge on local...

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! Would definitely visit again.

Our hosts were fantastic. The breakfast was as good as you will ever find (David should be a chef) and the Indulgence room was huge and beautiful. The owners have perfected the stay and their advice on neighboring places to visit was dead on.

Although your stay was short, you did manage to do a lot in your little time; perhaps you will come see the Finger Lakes again as there is much more to see and do.

Comfortable bed, beautiful house, lots of nice amenities - cookies! Two things in particular stood out - the breakfast is probably the best I've ever had in a B & B. And the innkeepers - Dave and Dave - are intelligent, knowledgeable, interesting - a thorough delight! The whole visit left me relaxed and uplifted. Just go.

Truly outstanding accommodation! I was originally concerned that it might be too far away for constant drives to Cornell University in Ithaca but it was 15 minutes into a parking spot there.
