| Halsey House Bed & Breakfast
David Blake and David Wren
Built in 1829, along what is now State Route 96, Halsey House is listed in the National Register of Historic Places and the U.S. Department of the Interior touts it as “the most elaborate and the best preserved early Greek Revival house in the region.”
Guests take a step back in time in surroundings which include original wide-plank pine floors and grain-painted mahogany doors, yet are afforded every amenity expected by travelers in the 21st Century. The house’s five gracious and elegantly appointed guestrooms all have private bathrooms. The beds at Halsey House are either king-size or queen-size and each has a plush, pillow-top mattress. Every guestroom includes TV, DVD player, A/C and high speed wireless internet. The house is also equipped with world power travel adapters for international visitors.
When staying at Halsey House, guests are less than 10 miles from both Cornell University and Ithaca College and are conveniently close to Cayuga Lake and the Cayuga Wine Trail as well as Seneca Lake and wine trail. Halsey House sits across the road from Taughannock Creek and is only 1.8 miles from the famed overlook at Taughannock Falls.
Halsey House is the cherished home of the hosts, who take pride in making every guest feel as if they are reuniting with old friends.
