Wine Tasting with Mom

May 7th, 2012 by Gail

Mother’s Day is the perfect opportunity to show mom how much you care. You could send flowers and chocolates, or you could bring mom to our Finger Lakes Bed and Breakfast for a weekend of wine tasting.

Cayuga Lake Wine Tasting

Celebrate Mother's Day Weekend with Wine Tasting at Cayuga Lake Wineries.

You know your mother would love to spend a couple of days with you. When was the last time you spent some quality time together? When was the last time you vacationed together? Don’t let any more time pass without making that happen. She’ll be thrilled.

Several Cayuga Lake Wineries are hosting several fun events during Mother’s Day Weekend:

  • Friday Night Concert Series at Americana Vineyards, which is just a couple of miles up the road from our Cayuga Lake Bed and Breakfast. Dee & The Lone Rangers performs from 6-8 p.m.
  • Anniversary Celebration at Swedish Hill Vineyard, May 12 from noon to 5 p.m. This is the winery’s biggest sale of the year, and it’s a great opportunity to stock up on some of your favorite Finger Lakes wines.
  • Copper Oven Restaurant at Cayuga Ridge Estate Winery opens for the season on Saturday, May 12. The wood-fired, white clay ovens make some of the best pizza around. The ingredients are “hyper-local” and uber-good.
  • Sunday Afternoon Concert Series at Americana Vineyards. Can you think of a better way to spend the afternoon on Mother’s Day than sipping wine while listening to the Yardvarks Stop and admiring views of Cayuga Lake? We can’t!

Several Cayuga Lake Wineries are serving Mother’s Day brunches, but we think you won’t want to miss the Mother’s Day breakfast we’ll be preparing at our Finger Lakes Bed and Breakfast.

Additional information about winery events may be found at the Cayuga Lake Wine Trail.

Make the weekend extra special. Add a Wine Tasting Tour or a Celebration Package to your stay at Halsey House.

 

 

Romantic Getaway in the Finger Lakes

January 6th, 2012 by Gail

Although 2012 has just begun, February will be here before we know it. We spend January recovering from the holidays and getting back into the swing of things at work. By the time February is upon us, most of us are ready for a little R & R: Relaxation and Romance.

Romance in the bath; Margaret's Retreat.

In fact, February is an ideal month for romantic retreats, especially here in northern climes. Snow is falling as I write, covering the countryside in a soft blanket of white. The crisp air draws lovers together for warmth: we walk hand in hand, shoulder to shoulder; we sit close to one another on the sofa; we curl up together in front of the fireplace. February inspires intimacy.

Give yourself over to intimacy. Treat yourself and your lover to a Romantic Retreat at Halsey House, an elegant Finger Lakes Bed and Breakfast.

St. Valentine’s Day is smack in the middle of the month, on a Tuesday; so we propose turning February into a Month of Love. Come when you can get away for a few days, no matter when that is. Our Romantic Nights Package will add romance to any night.

Curl up by fire in Elegance.

The Romantic Nights Package includes a bottle of local Finger Lakes wine (your preference, red or white), dessert for two, served in your room, and a fun, romantic board game (discretely placed in your room). Romance will flourish, whether you’ve been together for two month or 20 years.

Two rooms in our NY Bed and Breakfast have gas fireplaces to help spark a romantic mood: Indulgence and Elegance. Two rooms have two-person Jacuzzi tubs: Indulgence and Margaret’s Retreat. All rooms boast luxurious, Egyptian cotton bedding and feather pillows.

Our Finger Lakes Region Bed and Breakfast is home to dozens of award winning wineries, stunning waterfalls, and the cultural attractions of Ithaca and Cornell. On the other hand, you may not want to leave the inn.

The weekend after Valentine’s Day is President’s Day Weekend. Why not treat your sweetie to three nights of romance at our Finger Lakes Bed and Breakfast?
