Welcome to La Tourelle Hotel


At La Tourelle we consider ourselves a warm, cozy home where we welcome friends we haven’t met yet! From the moment you step into our lobby, you and your loved ones will be welcomed by our attentive reception team. Our lobby is adorned with comfortable seating, a blazing fireplace in the winter, and a custom bar featuring all local beverages. Enjoy complimentary coffee, Wi-Fi, and parking included with every stay. Our beds are comfy, the grounds are beautiful, and the hike to Buttermilk Falls right out back is simply inspiring. Nestled on 15 acres, we are just minutes from Cornell University and Ithaca College, as well as exquisite wineries, fascinating museums, great music and theater venues, and mouth-watering restaurants. Ask our staff for recommendations – we just love sharing our favorite places to dine and explore. 

With our guests' experience always top of mind, we strive to continue to set the bar high as one of the best places to stay in the Finger Lakes region. Allow our courteous, professional staff to pamper you at August Moon Spa with massage and skincare treatments, using products created from herbs and flowers grown in our very own gardens. In addition, please stop by the lobby to meet our team who manage our intimate 54-room hotel and bistro. Plus, we are pet-friendly, so your four-legged family members are always welcome to tag along!
