Certificate of Excellence
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.

What a pleasant surprise La Tourelle turned out to be. A really charming place to stay in the Finger Lake region of NY. The owner Scott and his family make you feel right at home and the adjoining spa and bistro are both excellent. It is very close to Buttermilk Falls State Park

I took a last brief get-a-way with my elderly mother from Northern PA to Ithaca for two nights and we found this lovely hotel. The woman at the front desk intuitively assessed my mothers health and placed us in an easy and beautiful room which my mother loved. Our second night we

This unique hotel is very near Ithaca NY but feels like it’s out in the French countryside. There is art everywhere collected on the owner’s travels and from local artists and artisans. The rooms are spacious, clean and quiet. If that weren’t enough, the price is reasonable and

3.5 stars I had high hopes, just came a little short on delivery.
Overall good visit. It was clean, easy check-in and check-out, on site spa.
The spa was nice and you can use the steam room/sauna and tranquility rooms without charge if you are a guest at the hotel. The free wine

Is the campground still in the back of the property? If so, do guests still have access to it?

Does the spa offer accommodations for women who want strict privacy from any men during the massage? What are the spas like? Can one request only a female therapist?
You can request whichever gender you prefer and the ask you your preference upon booking the appointment. The spa offers separate women’s and men’s locker rooms (not like at your fitness center) with showers, a sauna and steam room. They provide footwear and a kimono type robe. Lockers are accessible by a ‘create your own passcode’ method. Clean, tranquil- spa rooms all have dimmed lighting, a selection of several different zen music - chanting, Asian, flutes/Native American-etc I would and have recommended to many. Take the trip. :)

How far is the hotel to the moosewood restaurant
Moosewood is roughly 3~ miles from La Tourelle! There is a parking garage a block away from it, as well as on the street parking (which is free after 6 PM and both are free on most weekends!)

I just called the La Tourelle and got little to no information from reception (other than pricing). I have never been to the area before - I wanted information on local restaurants/wineries. Has anyone tried the package with spa and steakhouse? Any recommendations? Thank you!
Ithaca has some interesting dining places. Just A Taste featured unique small plates and wine. The Boatyard Grill has great seafood and burgers. The Commons downtown has several lovely shops with unusual items. Its not a large area but worth exploring.

"We stayed in both the "Valley" rooms and "Sunrise" rooms, both were great!"
"We had a corner room with calming views of plush lawns and shrubbery."
"Ask for a recently renovated room."
"They're all quite nice."
"Best rooms look out to the west. The inn constantly updates the rooms so ask for a recently refreshened one"
