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.

Have been staying at LaTourelle for years. Our experiences have been exceptional. Feels like our home away from home in Central New York. Got married there and had a wonderful time......Staff is great and creates an inn-like atmosphere. Love the evening wine tastings!

I stayed at La Tourelle with a group of 8 ladies for a bachelorette party. From the bistro to the spa to the rooms, everything was amazing! The rooms were enormous, with 2 king beds in each room, and a great seating area for late night drinks and conversations. Our group

Some hotels say they're pet friendly but roll their eyes and grudgingly stick you in a basement room, far far away. Here, they have a pet friendly wing, on the ground floor with a separate exit, pet beds, etc and they were very welcoming. Rooms were excellent, fire crackling

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

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!)

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.
