This truly is a family run business and you feel at home the second you walk in. From the luxurious rooms to the beautiful grounds to the free wine happy hour, you feel pampered and comfortable. We highly recommend having breakfast at the bistro (the stuffed pancakes are amazing)! Walk down to Firelight camps at night and enjoy some time... More

My husband and I stayed for 5 days, we loved our room and the unique surroundings. The hotel has free wine tastings each day at 5pm. The on site steak house served us a superb meal in our room, as we wanted to relax after a day of hiking Enfield Gorge. This hotel has beautiful grounds, gazebos, ponds and a... More

I stayed here for one night with colleagues and attended a full-day work retreat at the hotel. It is not downtown, but a bit off the beaten path. The views are nice, and the atmosphere is relaxing. The rooms were all a bit different, some much nicer than others. Bed was very comfortable with nice duvet and pillows. The walls... More

I've stayed at many of the hotels in Ithaca but found La Tourelle to be the best one. The rooms are very comfortable and spacious, the amenities are nice including a free wine hour in the lobby, and the grounds are beautiful. This will definitely be my go-to hotel for now on.

Full of vintage charm and eco friendly. Excellent service and thoughtful considerate staff. Nature friendly and organic grounds with a luxury spa only a few steps away. Our vacation destination for 10 years.

We're a family of four with two teenage boys who decided to splurge a little on our Ivy League Road Trip to Cornell/Ithica. My husband and I got a King bedroom with balcony and fireplace. Well worth spending extra on the balcony as the view out back was very nice. The bed was comfy and having two sinks and shower... More

Be prepared to make your plans for either Ithaca College or Cornell well in advance. I made my graduation reservation on January 2, 2014 for a May 2015 graduation. We were blessed to have been able to reserve the Yellow Barn Suite. I have stayed many times at the hotel and have always enjoyed the homey feeling of the property... More
