We definately will be back in the fall for more of this delightfull treatment. If you love exceptional service and when I say this it starts from owner Scott Wiggins & the entire rest of his staff. In addition if you love being pampered or spoiled with outstanding customer service paired with evening wine tasting (which were more than just... More

For a reunion the Finger Lakes region is equidistant for the three branches of our family. After much online research we decided to stay at La Tourelle in Ithaca. Scott the innkeeper and the entire staff were very friendly and welcoming. We were able to check in early and found the rooms to be spacious and very clean. Our bathroom... More

We only stayed one night because we were there for a wedding but we will be back. The staff was amazing. We got to our room and decided we needed a roll away. My husband called the front desk and the girl who checked us in immediately brought us the bed. We had an amazing time and the food at... More

I stayed here one night to get my son moved in to his fraternity. I arrived hot and grubby so the double shower head felt amazing. I think it was a jacuzzi tub as well. The room and the bathroom were huge. I enjoy having a mini fridge too. The prettiest, nicest room I have stayed at in Ithaca. Very... More

We had a wonderful time at La Tourelle. Scott was a great, knowledgable, and friendly manager. It's an ideal location for winery access but also a quick trip to downtown Ithaca. The Inn offered complimentary wine tasting each night and the adjoining Firelight campsite provided a walking distance fire pit and outdoor bar. La Tourelle made our "mini moon" perfect!

La Tourelle is a lovely property just outside of Ithaca. The place has a European feel decorated in an eclectic collection of furnishings. The rooms are spacious with views of the beautiful setting adjacent to a state park. We began our mornings with a walk through the surrounding woodland. Very peaceful , very refreshing. It was a great base to... More

We just had my daughter's wedding at La Tourelle. The accommodations are beautiful and unique. Period decorated rooms and decor are aesthetically pleasing, eye catching summer gardens and flowers, and vegetables, and berries. In addition, they offer miles of trails to the beautiful gorges and Buttermilk Falls State Park. There is also a spa, glamping - high end camping- and... More

Very comfortable rooms in an older resort, about 4 miles from the city center in Ithaca. Nice people. Large rooms, very nice bathrooms and showers. Great beds and pillows. Older place, yes, but nice. Very good breakfast at The Bistro. Excellent dinner at John Thomas Steakhouse on the grounds.

Stayed 4 days as a couple after dropping the kids off at camp. Nice rooms and a GREAT staff - front desk, housekeeping, spa, and grounds staff. The happy hour every evening featuring local wines is wonderful. We hiked the trail to the falls which begins and goes through much of the hotel property. Unfortunately due to the drought, there...

Came to Ithaca for a wedding at the Firelight Campground. Stayed at LaTourelle the night before. All the wedding guests were staying at the campground the night of the wedding & so did we. But since the hotel and campground are essentially on the same property, I wish we stayed two nights at LaTourelle. When we arrived, we were greeted... 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. 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 "farm-to-table" menu at The Bistro. ... more   less
