Just when you thought you were in a remake of "Deliverance" this hotel provides a welcomed intermission back to (at least my) preferred reality. With it's omage to the musical greats in the lobby, to its friendly warm staff, La Tourelle is a fabulous place to stay when visiting your kids in Ithica. Makes parent's day a pleasure, and them...

If you happen to be in Ithaca for either Ithaca College or Cornell University events or even just for a get a way, this is the place for you. Most unusual and upscale Hotel in greater Ithaca area. Closer to Ithaca College but short drive to Cornell. The view down into the valley is spectacular, the happy hour with local...

We came to this hotel the entire time our son was at Ithaca College. La Tourelle is right down the street from the school. There is a happy hour every night from 5-6 showcasing Finger Lakes wines and cheeses. It is a great opportunity to meet the innkeepers and other guests. The rooms are comfortable, the 2nd floor rooms overlooking...

My husband and I were celebrating our 30th wedding anniversary and this was the perfect spot. Very romantic, relaxing, clean and the grounds were beautiful - the staff gave us a complimentary bottle of local sparkling wine from a local winery to help us celebrate.

My wife and I stayed here one night on our honeymoon. Room was great. The bed was fabulous. The commons area was a great place to socialize upon arrival. The beer/wine and cheese was a nice touch after the drive. The grounds are beautiful. The staff was great and always there to answer any questions. The spa is warm and...

Scot does a super job and we were thrilled to spend the weekend here, only regret was we didn't have an extra day. Great place & great food to match their hospitality. Would definitely love to visit in another season.

I love an intimate Inn with an on-site Spa. After a really stressful week, this was the perfect setting. The room, a King Suite was spacious with a lovely view and a fireplace. It was clean and charming. We wanted to tour the various wineries but did have time, so having the complimentary wine tasting each evening was a real...

We spent a ladies weekend at the La Tourelle and couldn't ask for much more. Staff was friendly and very accomodating. It was warm, inviting, and can't complain about the wine reception in the lobby each night. We felt right at home there. Beds are VERY comfortable, rooms were clean, spacious, and loved having a variety of books to read...

Not a great hotel but a substantial step up from the cheesy motels and alot les generic than most of the hotel offerings. Best thing is the (free) wine bar in the evenings with a very generous and gracious host. Nice lesser-known is the bar out back serving the "glamping" crowd (yes they have glamping here also). Rooms OK--quite large...

Loved my recent two-night stay at La Tourelle. This was an off-season time for the hotel, so the hotel was generally quiet, which was wonderful for me as I'd been on the road for several days already. Typically, I don't sleep well the first night in a new hotel, but at La Tourelle, the comfort of the bed, the quality...

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
