Choose your own adventure in New York’s Finger Lakes region. At La Tourelle Resort and Spa, groups can take advantage of the August Moon Spa, dine at John Thomas Steakhouse and stay in luxury accommodations. Or, for a complete 180°, head out back to Firelight Camps, a campground equipped with platform safari tents, for the ultimate “glamping” experience.

Located on the grounds of La Tourelle, Firelight Camps operates as its own hotel, including a lobby tent with front desk reception and a bar, a banquet tent, outdoor lounge areas and 18 hardwood accommodation tents. The banquet tent is available for smaller meetings, or the entire camp can be used for larger-scale events. In addition, groups can choose activities and teambuilding adventures such as exploring the nearby Buttermilk Falls or Finger Lakes vineyards, or staying closer for a campfire with s’mores and games like bocce ball in the outdoor lounge areas.

Groups can also have it all, utilizing both Firelight Camps’ and La Tourelle’s facilities and programs. The 54-room resort has a two-level main meeting room that seats up to 150 guests and opens onto a covered patio for additional seating, breakout or reception space.

There is also the Yellow Barn Suite, ideal for retreats, smaller meetings or receptions up to 40. The three-level barn features a wood-paneled library with a gas fireplace, space on the main floor equipped with a projection system, and three guest rooms.
