We just returned from a weekend at La Tourelle and we really liked our stay. We were helping our daughter move into her sorority at Cornell and wanted to get away from the chain hotel syndrome that plagues the Ithaca area. This was a welcome choice. We had eaten at both John Thomas and the Bistro before and they did not disappoint us on this stay either. It was really nice to be away from the hustle and bustle of move in weekend at Cornell and only be a few miles away. Even nicer that we could enjoy a good dinner and breakfast and brunch without having to fight the crowds. Our room was very,very large with two king size beds and a great view of the grounds. The beds were very comfortable and the hotel offered wine and cheese when we were checking in and complimentary coffee and tea and water as well.
Adjacent to Buttermilk Falls and a mile and a half from Ithaca college, the location provided great walking, jogging and hiking. The hotel even offered to pick us up from the park after a four mile run. Purity Ice Cream is walking distance away and the wineries are nearby as well. We highly recommend this property when traveling to Ithaca....it is the only one with a personality! The rooms and public areas are nice and "inn" like......decor is not new, but the hospitality, food, location and grounds more than make up for the charming "older" furnishings. If you enjoy bed and breakfasts and inns, give this property a try! We will absolutely be back!
