Welcome to La Tourelle Hotel

RELAX & REJUVENATE IN OUR FINGER LAKES HOTEL IN ITHACA

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 70 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. 

The Wiggins family has been providing exceptional hospitality in Ithaca for over 30 years. With their guests' experience always top of mind, they continue to set the bar high as one of the best places to stay in the Finger Lakes region. Allow Kash, Phoenix and Moorea 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, meet Cameron, Jessica and Scott 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!
