Travelers' Choice
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 the 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.

Always treated like family! Great service from friendly staff. An Inn like experience. Fireplace with a warm fire in the lobby. Terrific wine tasting each evening. The breakfast was out of this world. And you can walk to a beautiful state park with miles of trails right from their back yard. Close to Ithaca College and Cornell and of course all the benefits of the Finger Lakes.

We stayed for 3 nights at La Tourelle. The staff was very nice. The room was clean but starting to look at bit worn. Everyone has masks on so we felt safe. We did not have the food so I can’t comment on that.

My husband and I spent the last three days at LaTourelle in Ithaca. Our stay was wonderful! Our room was clean, cozy and very comfortable. We had a gas fireplace which made it even better! We had a gorgeous view from our balcony. Our room was on the second floor so you could see for miles! Down below was a pond with a fountain that we could hear during the night with the slider open ( there is a screen door on the sliding door so no bugs!) there are also robes provided for use during your stay that were really nice....so nice, in fact, that I had to purchase one! There is also a basket of items to purchase which we enjoyed. There is a pack of epsom salt with lavender essential oil that we used in the jetted tub (great for sore muscles after hiking several waterfall trails ) there are other items all with essential oils as well! (I love the lip balm and lavender soap!) They have a lovely spa as well that usually has a steam room and sauna, but due to covid, were closed. We both had an hour massage while there which I must say was the best ever! Their Bistro restaurant had a very nice menu but was only open for breakfast, which we don’t eat, so I can’t say how it is. As far as covid precautions, everyone wore masks at all times, everything is clean and we felt at ease and never at risk. Everyone was very helpful and friendly. We will definitely go back next year!

La Tourelle is a beautiful, relaxing place to stay in the scenic hills southwest of Ithaca, out in the country but just a few minutes from the Commons. Perfect for a romantic getaway. The staff were completely friendly and helpful, and the room was spacious and comfortable with a simple country elegance. The grounds are lovely with gardens, ponds and gazebos all around. Brunch at the La Tourelle Bistro was exceptional. We enjoyed the breezes and views on the large covered outdoor patio and had the best French toast and omelet I've ever tasted in a restaurant. They even serve eggs from the adorable ducks on the property! We didn't try the spa but we enjoyed some spa products in our room. My partner and I are looking forward to staying at La Tourelle again.
