My wife and I were married in Ithaca and spent the weekend in the Indulgence Suite. We enjoyed the hospitality and the elegance that it offered! The breakfast, the surroundings and the service were truly 5 stars! It was a great experience that exceeded our expectations.

We were visiting the Finger Lakes for a little r and r for a few days. The stay at the Halsey House was just what we needed.

We loved having you as guests and were thrilled to see the backgammon board put to use...it had grown rather lonely the past few months as it sat idle there by the window waiting for some attention. A little R&R is what we think a B&B should offer together with a clean and comfortable environment, breakfasts that you would not...

The place was just like the pictures were on web site. The only thing missing was the computer on second floor that was listed on web site. This was not a problem thou. We had our phones. The bed was very comfortable and the shower felt great. The inn keepers were very knowledgeable on places to eat and visit.

Oops, we failed to make that change on the website. Given all the people with smart phones and ipads, notebooks, etc we saw no real need to have a computer available for guests' use and it proved to be a bit unsightly se we removed it.

We stayed in the "Chamber" and it was roomy enough for us, especially the bathroom. Breakfast was creative and delicious. Any amenities you could ask for were available. Fridge on each floor, water, sodas, chess, backgammon, several common areas, including 2 outdoors. Our hosts were friendly, without infringing on our privacy. They made restaurant reservations while we were out, and...

We were looking for a halfway point between Lower Westchester and Stratford, Ontario and on the suggestion of a friend, we checked out Halsey House. It's perfectly situated in the Finger Lake region between Cayuga and Seneca Lakes. For those looking for a spot close to Ithaca and Cornell colleges, this is ideal as well.

I came to Trumansburg in connection with a visit with my son, a prospective Cornell student.
