This place is friendly and interesting. It has the feeling of an old inn and is showing its age a bit (if that bothers you, didn't bother me). There was Afican art and statuary throughout, which was unexpected, but nice. Our room was large and comfortable. The pillowtop beds were comfy and so were the pillows. The shower/bath could have...

We spent two nights at La Tourelle during a hiking trip to Treman and Buttermilk. This lovely family-owned hotel has the feel of a bed and breakfast but is a boutique hotel in Ithaca NY. We had a deluxe king room with a gas fireplace (a romantic feature even in July). The room was so pretty, with a small balcony... More

This resort is a little out of the city which makes for quiet surroundings.Our room was clean and spacious. All staff were very accommodating and friendly. Easy access to Buttermilk Falls hiking trail right from the resort. Enjoyable evening complimentary wine and beer tasting. Complimentary coffee and snacks were readily available in the lobby area. Good breakfast at the adjoining... More

Incredible beauty, service, food, rooms, and most of all they made us feel like family. This was an extremely important family trip, and the staff of the hotel were a family and made us all feel so cared about is was astonishing. Wish I could offer 25 stars for this dream hotel!

My husband and I spent a lovely weekend at La Tourelle. We chose the hotel based on reviews but are often less than impressed when we get there. However, when we got to our room here, my husband said this is great. We had a large room, lots of light, beautifully furnished, windowed bathroom, and a balcony overlooking the grounds... More

We had a mixed experience. The hotel is tired, the room was clean, but very tired lobby and linens were tired as well. They serve free wine at 5, and the glamping grounds behind the inn also served free wine from 5-6. And, we were lucky to be there on a Tuesday nite, there is a band on Tuesday nites... More

Hotel staff was so accommodating, room was clean and comfortable, and we loved the fact we could hike Buttermilk trail from the hotel. LOVE the Happy Hour - we enjoyed talking with Scott, staff, and other guests each evening.

I had a lovely stay at La Tourelle. The room was large, clean and comfortable. The grounds are a peaceful place for an after dinner walk. Bistro breakfast was delicious. Staff were pleasant and helpful. Will definitely be back.

I had a mixed experience. Positives include excellent brunch at The Bistro restaurant, many fine, classy touches to the lobby and rooms (including the presence of books; in how many hotels will you find that?) as well as friendly staff in general. They also have three dog friendly rooms which to me is a big plus. On the other hand... More

We had a really nice stay at La Tourelle. We made a last-minute decision to come up to the Finger Lakes area a day early for a wedding, after finding a nice Thursday night rate for the hotel. The hotel has a lot of charm with its French and African decor. The complimentary wine tasting (5-6pm in the lobby) was... 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 54 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.
