My husband and I visited the Halsey House for our anniversary. Having never stayed at a bed and breakfast, we weren't sure what to expect. We were amazed by the beauty of the house and how remarkably clean it was. My husband is a builder and was admiring the work done throughout the house. Our room was wonderful and so...

It is always a pleasure to welcome first time B&B guests to our home; all B&Bs are different but we want everyone to leave having had a great time and open to trying more B&Bs in the future (though we surely hope they will return to see us as well). The Davids are pleased that we apparently succeeded in that...

My husband and I stayed at the Halsey House this past September for four nights. The house is a beautiful historic old home with tons of charm throughout! We stayed in the Elegance Room, which was very clean and comfortable. The private bathroom was spacious, with an oversized shower. The home is centrally located in the Finger Lakes region, which...

I love when our non-southern guests love my grits; it used to amaze me the number of people who would see grits and refuse to try but I encouraged them and most found them to be very good. It is the fresh corn and tomatoes and the local cheese that makes them so good in the late summer. As you...

As there are many wineries/cideries, distilleries, we are always happy to assist with suggestions, especially for some of those "off the beaten path gems" that we are glad you enjoyed.

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.

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.

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...

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.
