Mirbeau Inn, Belhurst Castle SHOWERS, BATHTUBS

Hi, we're headed to Finger Lakes this spring and want to find somewhere nice, quiet, and romantic to stay. I've heard of both Mirbeau Inn & Belhurst Castle. Might be able to visit both depending on when we go. My questions are 1) Is it nice and quiet? and 2) Is the bathtub and shower large? Huge? They refer to them as "two person" but the pictures on their respective websites don't show them clear enough to see. Thanks in advance. Oh, PS: good restaurant recommendations nearby?

Can't comment on Belhurst, but we can tell you that the Mirbeau is outstanding. Every room has a claw-foot tub for two, and a separate walk-in shower for two. The toiletries are of top quality, and you feel like you're in the spa, when you're just in your bathroom! In fact, we think their bathrooms are actually bigger than our first apartment! Add to that a view of the gardens from every room, and a fireplace on each room with seats for two, and you can't go wrong!

When we first looked up Mirbeau on the web, we were concerned that it might actually be cheesy. The french theme seemed a bit over the top. But once you get there, they manage to really pull it off without feeling overdone. Accommodations are top notch. Restaurant is excellent. Spa is class A. Mirbeau is fabulous and the charming town of Skaneateles only adds to the experience.

I cannot speak to Mirbeau but one of the best restaurants in town is Rosalie's Cucina. For what it is worth (and maybe not much), the Clintons have vacation in Skaneateles and, among other establishments, ate at Rosalie's.

I think the restaurant is quite beautiful. The building looks like something you would find in Tuscany.

Check out their website.

Agreed - Rosalies is excellent. There are also some other great restaurants in town, including:

- The Sherwood Inn (great tavern atmosphere) http://www.thesherwoodinn.com/

- Joelles (excellent French fine dining) http://www.joellesfrenchbistro.com/

- Inn at Elderberry Pond (a country restaurant that serves its own organically grown and raised foods) http://www.elderberrypond.com/id2.html

Also, as I mentioned before, Mirbeau has an excellent restaurant within the hotel.
