There are times to stay home for the holidays, there are times to stay with family, and there are times to try something new. If you feel like you need something different this holiday season, consider spending a few days at our Finger Lakes Bed and Breakfast near Ithaca, New York.
Couples spending their first Christmas or New Year together may want to forego familial obligations and busy parties with dozens of friends. If all you want to do is gaze into each others’ eyes, cuddle by the fire, and enjoy lazy mornings, there is no place better for you than Halsey House.
Empty nesters may also find it refreshing to spend the holidays away from home. If your twenty somethings are busy exploring the world and unable to come home next week, hop in the car and head to our Finger Lakes Bed and Breakfast. Rediscover each other. In future years, your holidays will undoubtedly be filled with grandchildren; this year, make the season all about you.
There is much to do in the Finger Lakes Region, if you can pull yourself away from the warmth of Halsey House.
Wine tasting is one of our favorite activities, especially during holidays. What better way to find gifts than to hand pick wines for the oenophiles in your life? The Finger Lakes Region is lauded as one of the best producers of Rieslings in the country; indeed, the Rieslings produced here rival some of the finest Rieslings in the world. This is particularly noteworthy at this time of year, as Rieslings are perfect for holiday toasts.
Several local wineries are hosting special events in the coming weeks. Red Newt Cellars invites Wine Lovers to attend Winelovers’ Night at their Bistro on Thursday, December 22, 2011. Try new wines or your old favorite wines; Red Newt Cellars offers an extensive list of wines by the glass, their own and others. Glenora Wine Cellars and Veraisons Restaurant are offering dinner and dancing on New Year’s Eve. Dozens of other wineries are open daily for wine tasting and tours throughout the holiday season.
Join us at Halsey House, a Finger Lakes Bed and Breakfast, this holiday season. Try something new and different. You may find yourself wanting to come here year after year.
