My wife and I stayed here and had a fabulous two night stay. The room was fantastic with it's own private balcony and gas fireplace. The room was very comfortable and we enjoyed it immensely. The staff was super friendly and attentive. The house coffee is delicious and available 24/7. Hotel also has a nightly wine tasting from 5-6 which...

My wife and I stayed here for her birthday. What a beautiful place and a great time. We managed to check in early which was fantastic after the long drive from Toronto. Our room was simply stunning - overlooking the grounds and on towards Ithaca. Comfortable and clean amenities. We went hiking on the buttermilk falls trail which is accessible...

Spent some time at this hotel a few weeks ago for a wedding and a weekend stay. The hotel and amenities were excellent and I can't say enough about the service. Welcoming, helpful, and knowledgable, the whole experience was easy to enjoy. The wedding was beautiful from start to finish, and the food was among the best i've had at...

Located outside of the city of Ithaca, this boutique hotel was a great place to regroup after a day of tasting Finger Lake wines. We were traveling with another couple and the management placed our rooms together. Our room had a queen bed and large in suite bathroom that had a double headed shower. Our traveling companions had a king...

After much consideration of properties from which to base our exploration of the Finger Lakes, we chose La Tourelle and are glad we did. As many travelers have discovered to their grief, picking a hotel on the basis of web sites and Internet reviews can be an iffy process. The first thing we noticed upon arrival at this hostelry was...

We were asked by friends to meet them in the Ithaca area to tour New York wine country. Our search for an interesting place to stay led us to La Tourelle, and we're so glad it did! La Tourelle is a wonderful European-style boutique hotel and spa, set on lovely grounds on the outskirts of Ithaca. Entering the inn leads...

We had a room in the main building with a lovely view. The staff were attentive and helpful. Our only quibble was the breakfast room is a bit small so you become aware of others waiting for tables. Great wine tasting in the late afternoon of local produce. Getting to Ithaca itself certainly needs transport. Nice town with an alternative...

There are many pros and cons. Let's start with the positives: The location is fairly convenient (15 minutes) to Cornell and down the street from Ithaca College. There is a steak house next door that appears to have an upscale menu and is super convenient if you don't feel like driving to dinner. The rate was decent given it was...

The best thing about La Tourelle is it's stunning grounds which the owners have landscaped beautifully, with summer-houses, ponds and plants. Perfect for a peaceful afternoon or even half an hour to chat or read. The reception area is a lovely space, with sofas, games, and a bar with local wines. These are hospitably shared in the evening. The space...

La Tourelle was one of the most pleasant hotel experiences that we have had. Our room was charming and clean. The staff was informative and helpful. We had a problem with our car and they directed us to a great auto shop and offered to pick us up. The steam room, sauna and exercise room were awesome and the breakfast...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
If you're looking for a getaway that offers deluxe accommodations; fabulous food; great wine; a destination spa and adventure experiences all nestled in the gorgeous New York Finger Lakes wine region, you've found it! La Tourelle's 54 deluxe rooms have dreamy pillow-top mattresses to ensure a restful night's sleep. You'll need that sleep if you plan on touring the wine trails; visiting the museums; taking a hike in any of five state parks, or participating in the numerous adventure excursions available in "gorges" Ithaca. After experiencing all that Finger Lakes wine country has to offer, you'll really appreciate getting pampered at August Moon Spa. We offer all the services you expect from a destination spa, plus we have two Tranquility Rooms where you can relax and enjoy cuisine from our "farm-to-table" menu at The Bistro. ... more   less
