Explore the Beauty

The Halsey House (c.1829) was built by Nicholl Halsey, first settler and founder of Halseyville, a small hamlet on the outskirts of Trumansburg. It is listed on the National Historic Registry.  Trumansburg is a charming town with quick access to many of the nearby treasures including Cayuga Lake and Taughannock Falls State Park, several award winning wineries, Cornell and IC, farmer’s markets, music in the parks, Hangar Theatre and terrific nearby restaurants (Atlas is a favorite!). Within an hour’s drive you can enjoy the Corning Glass Museum to the south; the Women’s Rights National Park and Museum in Seneca Falls to the north; Watkins Glen and Seneca Lake to the west; and Syracuse University and the Strong Museum of Play to the northeast. We also make a great home base for special family gatherings such as reunions and weddings (ask about renting the whole house!). We are 5 miles to Cayuga Medical, so if you are in need of longer-term accommodations (e.g. visiting nurse, PA or patients) we offer discounts on the nightly/weekly rate.
