"Halcyon" is from the Greek myths and signifies peace and tranquility. Surrounded by open fields and rolling hills, but centrally located between Corning, New York, the Keuka Wine Trail, and the Seneca Wine Trail, Halcyon Place offers an escape to the Finger Lakes wine region. The discerning traveler will appreciate the beauty of this historic Greek Revival furnished with period antiques. The stately home is distinguished by graceful columns, six-over-six windows, stunning woodwork, and pristine wide-plank floors. Lush herb gardens invite you to tarry on the porches or stroll the grounds. You can enjoy breakfast by candlelight in the dining room in winter or overlooking the herb gardens in Spring and Summer.
Halcyon Place is a short drive from Corning where you can enjoy a day at the Corning Museum of Glass or the Rockwell Museum followed by a stroll along historic Market Street. Hammondsport and the Keuka Lake Wine Trail are but fifteen minutes away. Hammondsport was named as America's Coolest Small Town in 2012. Take a lovely drive through the countryside from Halcyon Place to the Seneca Lake Wine Trail and discover some of the finest restaurants in the Finger Lakes. Suzanne Fine Regional Cuisine, Stone Cat Cafe, and Dano's Heuriger on Seneca are halcyon favorites.
Sailing, cross-country skiing, antiquing, wine-tasting, outdoor concerts, and relaxing are just across our doorstep in the Finger Lakes region of New York.
Upon arrival at Halcyon Place Bed and Breakfast, enjoy a cup of tea or a refreshing Finger Lakes beverage. During your stay, relax with a good book in front of the parlor fire, or enjoy a quiet summer afternoon in the yard or on our wicker-filled porch.
