Spring has returned to the Finger Lakes

With temperatures in the 60s, sunshine in the sky, and hints of new growth breaking through the dirt...its official, Spring has arrived in the Finger Lakes. 

With perfect weather right around the corner there has never been a better time to plan your trip to La Tourelle and shake off those winter blues. The waterfalls are rushing, the wineries are open, outdoor dining has returned with more restaurants re-opening everyday, and there is nothing like watching a Spring sunset from our gazebos or balconies (or sunrise for you early risers) as the sun slowly fades behind the rolling hills of the valley behind us.
