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.

Cornell grads, we've been coming to Ithaca for years. This was our first stay at La Tourelle, but we will most definitely be back. The setting was beautiful. We enjoyed hiking the trail to Buttermilk Falls, and sitting in one of the gazebos with our morning coffee. The entire staff was friendly and knowledgeable about the area. The room was comfy and clean, and the fresh bread from Ithaca Bakery at the Bistro was delicious. Hidden gem in town!

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 planned our July wedding reception at La Tourelle but had to modify our plans due to Covid. The hotel was incredibly accommodating and allowed us to use their expansive and beautiful grounds for our much smaller ceremony and reception. The staff were amazing - from the last minute questions, to flexible check in/out times, coolers and ice for the beverages we brought along, decorations for the tables, a sound system for our music - they took care of all the little things. That was on top of the big things like INCREDIBLE food. Chef Anne and her team deserve 10 stars for putting together a seafood boil that our guests couldn’t stop talking about along with a wedding BBQ that was the perfect combination of unique and traditional with portions that left out guests ready to change into some comfy clothes! The ballroom has been recently renovated and is spectacular with the newly tiled floor and sophisticated lighting giving the space a fresh look. Everyone we encountered at the hotel was thoughtful and friendly. When there was an issue with my fiancé’s room due to the checkout time they immediately took care of it and found him a new room to change in and hang out with his wedding party. The owner is incredibly generous and the pride he takes in the property is evident. They have pet friendly rooms for our guests that couldn’t leave their fur babies at home and a trail to Buttermilk Falls our back for those that had some free time before the wedding to explore. It’s also a 5 min drive into downtown if you do happen to need anything the hotel can’t provide, but based on my experience, it’s unlikely you’ll need to go anywhere...this place has it all!

We stayed in July 2020, and first -- the staff and management do everything they need to do to keep guests safe and secure. Hand sanitizer is available in several places. Guests are asked to wear masks. They do it right. As for the hotel, it's a lovely spot, family run, without any corporate cookie-cutter feel. It's a friendly place, with grounds where you can eat outside (a few gazebos and other seating). Our room was quite nice, well appointed, and very comfortable. The attached bistro (open for breakfast and lunch) was staffed with kind, cheery people.

Two of my kids and Grandkids went Glamping in tents behind the hotel. We stayed in the hotel. The rooms were large, and newly remodeled. The staff was very accomodating, and they all wore masks. For breakfast we ate in the Bistro restaurant out on the patio. We all enjoyed our meals. I would like to make this a yearly trip with all my kids and grandkids
