This was my wife's and my 5th visit to the Halsey House B&B to stay with our good friends -- and innkeepers -- David and David. We hadn't visited the Finger Lakes in November before and didn't regret it either. The nights were certainly cooler, in the low 40s. But the days, in

David...thank you for this amazing review; perhaps it is fitting that it is sure to be the final review for Halsey House on TripAdvisor as David and David step down with a flourish. What a wonderful experience this has been and the two of you have been a part of it from early on and thus have helped to make our time here so rewarding.

The inn was a complete delight - from the enthusiastic welcome from our hosts to the charming historic home and its grounds. The inn is beautifully maintained with comfortable and spacious suites, welcoming public rooms, and the most fabulous locally sourced, home chef prepared

We believe that hospitality starts as soon as a guest reserves a room and we send out a thank you along with some information about our home and this genera area, a follow up regarding weather and special events a few days pre arrival and of course, greeting guests in the parking area so we can assist with luggage. Hospitality then continues with clean , comfortable rooms, snacks and locally sourced foods for the breakfasts we serve...so glad that you enjoyed them. We are slowly narrowing the recipes that will appear in the book (assuming we find a publisher) as we also want to include recipes from some of our favorite restaurants here in Trumansburg. If all goes as currently planned, the book should come out in the Spring of 2020.

Halsey House is a great B&B. David and David are wonderful hosts. Breakfast and room were outstanding. Definitely better than most of the B&B's we have been to over 35 years Only issue was the room we had was a little noisy being near Route 96.

We are sorry that you were disturbed by the noise of the road traffic. When our home was built in 1829, it was, like most, built close to the main road. Indeed, Halsey House was once even closer to the road. The majority of our guest have expresed no issues with the noise but October is a difficult month because leaves (which deaden some noise) are falling and air conditioners (which offer a quite hum to drown out some road noise) are rarely in use because the weather is cooler. We do have fans in the room and some guests use them to create some white noise. When noise is an issue it is usually October and May (when leaves are not yet out and weather is not hot enough to warrant ac usage). We are pleased that, despite the noise, you enjoyed your stay and gave us a thumbs up for the bed and the breakfast. Thank you.

Wonderful B&B! My husband and I stayed there along with our friends (2 other couples) this past weekend. We also met 2 couples that were also staying there, and had a most lovely visit with them, also. The Innkeepers, David and David have an immaculate home, prepare the most

We appreciate your having chosen Halsey House for your annual reunion/return to the Finger Lakes and pleased that you enjoyed your stay. It is always nice to have groups of friends stay here as they tend to make themselves more at home and enjoy the common areas as well as the individual guest rooms and we love to see our home enjoyed by others as much as we enjoy it ourselves. Have safe travels

Hadn't been to the finger lakes in more than 10 years. So, my wife and I decided it was time for a return visit. Came upon this very nice B&B. We knew it was going to be a good experience when one of the innkeepers greeted us in the parking lot and, offered to help with our

Well, we hope that the stay and your visit to a much changed Finger Lakes region will lure back for more in less than 10 years. We do our best to be good hosts and that starts with guests' arrivals and helping with luggage as we introduce them to our home. We do pride ourselves on cleanliness and our breakfasts and as we love where we live, we enjoy sharing our knowledge of the area and all that it has to offer. Don't be strangers.
