My daughter and I stayed here while visiting colleges. Perfect location, just outside of Ithaca, very quiet and convenient, minutes away from Buttermilk Falls and the schools (Cornell and Ithaca College). The room was spacious, clean and incredibly comfortable. Best hotel on our trip!

Wonderful eclectic place that is comfortable and charming. It has been mention- it is getting a bit dated- but still maintains it charm. The grounds are lovely and it is a short drive to either Cornell or Ithaca. Great place to stay during school drop off!

If you are looking for a more personalized stay in Ithaca, this is it. One of the owners will serve you nightly at the complementary wine bar, and will regal you with local lore (like the scoop on the best dining places). The rooms and hallways are spotlessly clean. During warm weather evenings, there are fire pits next to a... More

Great find. Best breakfast in Ithaca! Nice comfortable country inn with spacious rooms, comfy beds and nice staff. Spa is excellent. If your really adventurous try "glamping" at the tents behind this resort.

In the title I wrote about price, so just want the readers to understand that I gave it a Very Good rating, but would have expected more. From check-in, it was a good experience, but the room was average at best. The air conditioner in our room seemed to big for the size, so when it was on you froze... More

We've reviewed this property previously but feel compelled to add another glowing review to their growing list. We love La Tourelle so much that we've stayed here at least 4 times in the past year, and intend to go again in another month or so. There is something uniquely soothing and tranquil about this property. While the individual pieces seem... More

My husband and I spent 3 nights recently at La Tourelle while visiting the Finger Lakes. The staff is wonderful and caring but the hotel itself is dated and worn. I can imagine that 25 or 35 years ago La Tourelle was the place to stay but now it screams for a little modernization. The walls are paper thin as... More

We stayed at La Tourelle on our way from Niagara Falls to New York City and were impressed by the great service. At first we asked where we could buy stamps and simply got a couple of stamps for free. In addition, there was a complimentary vine hour in a very familar atmosphere - served by the manager personally. Rooms... More

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
