Our stay at La Tourelle was relaxing and enjoyable. We booked a room with a balcony and the view was extraordinary. The room was very clean and comfortable, but a bit on the expensive side. We did, however, lenjoy the free wine-tasing each evening at 5:00 PM. About the only major complaint I have is the condition of the gazebos... More

My boyfriend and I are in our late twenties. We recently stayed at La Tourelle for a night on our trip through The Finger Lakes. Our Queen room was beautifully detailed in design, spacious, and very clean. We enjoyed the surprise of complimentary local wine from 5–6pm. The beautiful grounds are on a hill overlooking the lake. I would highly... More

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... More

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... More

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... More

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... More

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... More

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... More

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... More
