Stayed at La Tourelle after taking our son back to Cornell. The reviews in TA were glowing. I'm not sure why. Looks very promising from the outside…big and kind of French Chateau-y. But step inside and you're not sure where you are. The lobby is tired and dreary and institutional looking. I asked the receptionist what the hotel used to...

My boyfriend brought in the New Year at LaTourelle. We'd been to a wedding there and loved it so, we thought we'd try it for a little getaway. The staff is wonderfully sweet, welcoming and accommodating. The Bistro has a yummy menu and the food is locally sourced. It's a very cozy little place to eat. We had a great...

We wanted a cozy, off-the-beaten-path place to stay as we returned from Christmas down south. We were not disappointed with La Tourelle. What a lovely gem in Ithaca, NY. Our room was nicely appointed with a large bathroom and a gas fireplace in the room. Our bed was extremely comfortable. The ambience was exactly what we wanted...cozy, charming and not...

I have so many positive things to say about LaTourelle I don't know where to begin. Stayed at LaTourelle for a birthday celebration / girlfriend getaway weekend. When the weekend was over, we no longer felt like guest but more like family. Every one of my guest loved their rooms and we really enjoyed the Yellow Barn Suite which is...

From the start, everyone who works here is delightful and super friendly -- not a sour face among them. Our room was spacious, well appointed with real reading lights, a good TV, gas fireplace, a deck overlooking the hills and shelves full of books. With all that as well as a roomy, comfortable bath and cozy robes, it was easy...

I just returned from my 2nd cousin reunion at the Yellow Barn. The Yellow Barn is charming, spacious and offers privacy for each guest.

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
