The wind rustling through the trees. Brisk morning air. All from the comfort of your bed ... No setup required. Made up with high thread count linens, your tent is off-the-grid and warmly lit with battery-powered lanterns (that can also charge your phone). Mesh screening helps keep the critters out, and comfortable furniture - such as the writing desk - gives you a place to muse on your ideas or simply relax. Find a hammock a few feet away to escape with the birdsong.
Welcome to Firelight Camps, where we create a revitalizing, comfortable, and stylish camping experience. Pitched on the grounds of La Tourelle Resort and Spa in Ithaca, New York, our platform tents are furnished with hardwood floors, a king or queen bed with plush linens and safari-inspired furniture. Each tent includes a private balcony for soaking in the natural beauty with a good book, a fresh mug of coffee or a cocktail. We greet you in the morning with a complimentary, locally-sourced continental breakfast served in our tented lobby. During the day, we invite you to unwind on the surrounding trails of Buttermilk Falls State Park, in a hammock under the forest canopy or with a treatment at August Moon Spa (a short walk from your tent). For the adventurous, you can explore the Finger Lakes' famed vineyards, waterfalls and restaurants - or stay on the grounds for dinner at John Thomas Steakhouse. We spark the campfire at sundown, when a complimentary tasting awaits you at the bar and homemade s'mores promise to sweeten the company of friends, family and new faces!
Explore Firelight's backyard of Upper Buttermilk Falls State Park. The trailhead is located outside your tent flap, and will take you on a winding journey through one of the Finger Lakes' iconic gorges and cascading waterfalls. Delve deeper into the forest with a Wild Foraging Hike - a hands-on adventure with local experts where you'll learn to identify and harvest a variety of wild Northeastern plants, while maintaining the diverse forest ecology. The Finger Lakes is a treasure trove of places to explore beyond our glampground, including wineries, cideries, farms, restaurants, waterfalls, trails, lakes, art, music and theater.
