Hubby and I stayed midweek for a little anniversary splurge. Our spa appointments were messed up so we cancelled treatments and just planned to enjoy our room. We had expected a larger hot tub in the room but it was only big enough for one. I used the tub once in the evening but it wouldn't hold water the next...

Part French manor, part eclectic upstate NY, all good. Run more like a bed and breakfast (but breakfast is not free!), and done well. Small facilities, spa, hiking, excellent adjacent John Thomas Steakhouse, free wine in evening, coffee and tea all day. Rooms are nicely equipped though beds a little soft. Very close to Ithaca College, 5 minutes to downtown...

This facility is located in a nice quiet area outside Ithaca. If you are interested in land for walks, and a quiet countryside, this may be the place for you. Rooms are nice, clearly reflective of the age but with unique character. It was difficult to use technology, even a computer, as outlets were limited in the room, and the...

This hotel is very nice. The rooms are gorgeous and very comfortable. There was a gas fireplace in our room and since it was cool and damp when we got here we started it up and our room warmed very quickly. The bathroom is spacious and the shower/tub is great, two shower heads that are actually high enough that my...

We came here for my wife's birthday weekend. I called the day before and the staff had fresh flowers and chilled champagne waiting in the room. The lobby is warm and inviting with a wood fire, seating area and a small self-serve wine bar. The room was spacious and very comfortable with a pillowtop bed, gas fireplace, small refrigerator, TV...

We booked here after reading some fairly mixed reviews. It's located on a lovely overlook and even on a cold gray day the views were very nice. The facilities are clean and the individuals who work there are exceptionally nice and sincere. As other reviewers have noted the building is in need of renovation. The bathrooms and rooms are worn,...

Our group of seven women gathered for a Girls' Weekend Getaway, and we were thrilled with our accommodations! The lobby fireplace was the first of many welcoming aspects of the hotel on this cold Ithaca weekend. The free wine and cheese in the lobby each evening was another plus, and that is all before seeing the luxurious rooms! Our group...

Great country inn just a few minutes from downtown Ithaca. Guest rooms are spacious, beds are very comfortable and setting is tranquil. The lobby is roomy and comfortable. The Bistro serves an excellent breakfast and lunch, John Thomas Steakhouse is next door for dinner. Nice spa too.

If your looking for the best local romantic getaway that doesn't cost a fortune this is the place to go. My husband and I were looking for something romantic to do on valentine's day and finding La Tourelle was the best thing possible. La Tourelle is family owned, updated and clean. We felt that they really paid attention to the...

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
