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 greeted by a blazing fireplace, free Wi-Fi, a 24/7 coffee and tea station, and freshly baked cookies in the afternoon. We look forward to meeting you during our nightly Finger Lakes wine reception. 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. 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!
