Inn at Taughannock Falls

America's Only Lakeview Inn Just Steps From a Natural Waterfall Wonder

The Inn at Taughannock Falls is located in Trumansburg, NY, just 9 miles from Ithaca College and Cornell University. This stunning luxury boutique hotel spans across 12 acres featuring four buildings and the Northeast's largest outdoor event venue overlooking the lake. The four buildings combine 24 vintage and modern guestrooms, suites, a private lake house, and one of the best restaurants in the area featuring exceptional Cayuga Lake and Taughannock Falls State Park views.

Surrounded by Taughannock Falls State Park, which hosts the tallest waterfall on the east coast; a 215 foot vertical drop, is easily accessible by our hotel guests to visit and the Park also has a variety of activities including: hiking, swimming, canoeing, kayaking, water skiing and more.

The Inn at Taughannock Falls is a famous landmark, servicing the community since 1946. Originally built in 1873, the entire first floor of the Victorian mansion is dedicated to the Inn’s casual fine dining restaurant, which features a traditional American cuisine with a Mediterranean influence. Our recently renovated Hillside lake house offers six bedrooms and sleeps 12 in comfort. The Le Grande Residence, located within the Hillside lake house, offers a fully outfitted kitchen and oversized family room with pool table. Hillside may be rented by room or in its entirety for a group to enjoy. The guestrooms in our Edgewood building are a classic modern style and each feature a furnished lake view balcony. Our one-story Parkview house is nestled in the woods beside the Victorian Inn and directly against Taughannock Falls State Park.

Located at the start of the Cayuga Lake Wine Trail, the Inn is located in the heart of the idyllic Finger Lakes region, with over 100 wineries within a half hour from our location. The Inn at Taughannock Falls has just completed construction of a dedicated 10,000 SF event garden called “Enchantment," an elegant setting with a majestic stone fireplace, numerous fire pits and a Gatsby style translucent sailcloth tent, capable of handling receptions up to 500 and 300 for a seated dinner. We offer tours of this venue, year-round, which operates from May through October.
