My husband and I stayed at the Halsey House Labor Day weekend 2017. We were looking to get away for the long weekend and enjoy the beauty that the Finger Lakes Region has to offer. Before we even arrived we appreciated the three emails that we received from David and David letting us know about what there was to do in the area and the upcoming forecast the weekend.
David greeted us in the car park when we arrived and helped us carry our bags in. He showed us around the house to make us feel at home. The house, room and property as excellently maintained. Our room, Indulgence, had everything that we could think of needing for the weekend. it included a two person jacuzzi tub, walk in shower with a rain shower head, mini fridge, corkscrew and wine glasses, comfortable king bed and reading area.
The next morning we were greeted with amazing smells coming from the kitchen and the breakfast did not disappoint. Each morning was a completely different meal of locally sourced fruit, bread and meats. We sat with the other couples and families staying at the house. It was a great way to chat and learn about what other people were doing in the area.
After breakfast we spoke with David and he gave us recommendations on the best wineries to visit on the Cayuga and Seneca Wine Trails. We also discussed hiking opportunities and when was the best time to visit everything.
My husband and I can't recommend this B&B more highly! If you are looking to visit the wineries, hiking or visiting your child at Ithaca College or Cornell this is the prefect spot for you. David and David are outstanding hosts that think of everything and make you feel right at home.
