This hotel has all the charm of a B and B as well as beautiful accommodations. We stayed in deluxe King room. The room had bookcases filled with books (perfect for me as I am a librarian!), a gas fireplace, double head shower and Jacuzzi tub, a balcony with sliding door,a luxurious king bed and more! I would never stay... More

This is a small luxury hotel/inn near Ithaca College. It is clean and staff is helpful. We had a king bedroom with fireplace and balcony overlooking the hills and valley. The view and quiet is worth the price which is comparable to other hotels in the area. The cafe offers breakfast and lunch. The breakfast was very generous and delicious.... More

If you in need of relaxation this is the place, beds are beyond comfy, staff is always welcoming and the spa is wonderful. Love this place to unwind, we had a wonderful walk on the grounds and the wine trail is close by, very convenient, we had a great time as always.

I've stayed here on three occasions and it is consistently nice. The inn is a short drive out of Ithaca, in a lovely rural setting. Our rooms have all been clean and quiet. We love going outside to watch the fireflies after dark!

Our stay went along without any issues and the staff was perfectly friendly, however both the grounds and the rooms felt in desperate need of some attention. The bathroom had a distinct dated feel, with shoddy paint touch up with work, severely old ceiling tiles and water pressure that would rival a trickle. We have stayed on this property several...

We stayed two nights over the July 4th weekend. The property is large and pleasant - several outdoor spots to just sit and enjoy the surroundings. It is pretty easy to walk to the Buttermilk Falls from the property. The room was clean and the bed comfortable. A copy of a short story written by the owner was put on... More

Very relaxing. Staff was friendly and professional. This is our 2nd stay and we will certainly go back. (PS I chose friends over family as the type of trip below even though we are sisters ) Would like to go sometime with my husband.

The bed is very comfortable, breakfast is yummy & the spa is great. Here are the facts: - the decor is like a high- end nursing home. Room has zero charm. - no housekeeping came to make up our room... We were out of the room all day, 9 hrs AND had a cot delivered. No one noticed that housekeeping... More

My only disappointment is that we did not have more than one night here. The room was huge - with two king beds and lots of space. It was also clean and had a great view of the surrounding area. it's a very short drive from Ithaca itself, and you can hike directly to Buttermilk Falls. Breakfast was a treat... More

The hotel is slightly dated but has all the amenities that allow for a relaxing stay. Our king room with fireplace and balcony overlooking gazebos and pond in the back of the hotel was very roomy, had comfortable bedding, and included a large bathroom with dual head shower. We had breakfast and lunch in their restaurant and particularly enjoyed sitting... More

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 55 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 menu at The Bistro. ... more   less
