Discover New Adventure to Experience in Ithaca
La Tourelle sits atop Ithaca’s South Hill with panoramic views of Finger Lakes wine country’s rolling hills and farmlands. The hotel is adjacent to Buttermilk Falls State Park with a hiking trail that connects the hotel to the park’s trail system. La Tourelle is less than two miles from Ithaca College, three miles from the Ithaca Downtown Commons and four miles from Cornell University. Ithaca is located at the southern end of Cayuga Lake and has an amazing year-round weekend Farmer’s Market and a six-mile waterfront trail. A short drive in any direction, historic villages with timeless town squares dot the hills and valleys of the Finger Lakes. The robust farming, winery, brewing and distilling industry provide rich and varied ingredients for chefs to take full advantage of and for visitors to enjoy during their stay.
In addition, the eleven Finger Lakes provide ample opportunities for swimming, boating, kayaking, fishing and sailing. The many gorges and waterfalls provide spectacular hikes and the chance to commune with nature. World-class museums are also found from Ithaca to Corning and Rochester to Seneca Falls. Furthermore, music, theatre and lectures are plentiful in Ithaca and the Finger Lakes.
