“Perfection”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 March 2013

We had an absolutely lovely time at the Mirbeau. The service was exceptional & the staff couldn't have been any nicer. The rooms were very clean & the beds were insanely comfortable. Do yourself a favor and take advantage of the wonderful spa services that they offer. You won't regret it. The entire experience was so romantic, from the champagne to the dinner to the outdoor whirlpool. We were very happy that we decided to stay close to home for our getaway.

This is a gem in Western NY. Enjoy!

You'd think you were in the countryside of France. What a beautiful property in the middle of winter; I can only imagine how gorgeous it would be in summer. I can picture Monet's Waterlillies in real life in the courtyard between the main building and the cottages ...

The food was delightful; the "room" was expansive with a gas fireplace in the sitting area, the bathroom sumptuous with a huge soaking tub and a rainfall shower; the service was top-notch all the way around.

The spa was gorgeous with all the amenities one can think of. I had a great massage and used the steam room. I didn't have time to take advantage of the yoga classes or fitness area or the "aqua bar" (big outdoor river-like hot tub).

Romantic, luxurious ... I can't wait to go back!

My friend turned 40 this year and we share a birthday month. We have great husbands who had no problem alone with kids and got a deal on a package. The place is just beautiful, grounds, rooms, spa, and the surrounding town is lovely as well. The spa is such an oasis of relaxation, full access the day you check in and check out to fitness classes, steam room, sauna, outdoor hot tub, relaxation room. We had a delicious albeit pricey dinner but service was excellent and we truly enjoyed our meal. The package gave us some money on a card that you can use at a very cool wine bar where you can sample pricer or different bottle of wine without a full commitment, you swipe your card, press a button and wine poors into your glass..and there are people around to discuss the wine with you. The spa services were top notch and we felt so relaxed and pampered afterwards. My friend's hubby called ahead and told them it was her birthday and asked what they could do and they gave her a complementary big bottle of champagne ..so nice and turn down service gets you a small bottle of champagne and some chocolates....oh and robes are acceptable most of the time .including lunch and breakfast.... Dinner is a little dressier :).. We did a fitness class before we left and it was challenging and very fun...I truly enjoyed myself as did my friend and I really would love to bring my husband back...they have great couples and men options as spa treatments..I will have to save up though..it is quite pricey...the only reason for the 4 stars...

OMG great girlfriend weekend(or romantic wknd too),just WONDERFUL. Town of Skaneateles just a great place for shopping, eating and viewing the lake. Stayed at the Mirbeau with my sisters. Room was very large and the bathroom too. We had lunch at Doug's Fishfry(outstanding) very casual and dinner at the Sherwood was amazing. Breakfast the next day was very good. All staff very friendly and helpful.

Came here with a friend on her press trip.

The room: We stayed in Cottage 222 and it was absolutely beautiful! Tall ceilings, fireplace, fully stocked beverages in the mini-fridge, great view of the garden/pond area, enormous bathroom with french tub and walk in shower. The bed was extremely comfortable and slept great.

The food: The continental breakfast that is included for overnight guests was indulgent. Brie, bleu and cheddar cheeses, assortment of fruits and berries, meats, salmon, greek yogurt with housemade granola and the best croissants that I have ever eaten! Servers were the best. So friendly and personable. For dinner on the first night we enjoyed some small plates at the bar. Chicken Citron and Greek Salad. Both delicious. The second night we had a three course meal at the restaurant: Asparagas & Gruyere wrapped in Phyllo, Lobster, Scallops, Langoustines in a red thai curry sauce with rice and cilantro whipped cream, and for dessert: Chocolate mouse in an edible chocolate cup. Everything was outstanding. It is pricey but seems standard for an upscale restaurant.

The spa: Hands-down, the best part of our weekend stay. I didn't actually receive a spa service but I still had access to the spa. The large locker room had a luxurious eucalyptus steam room, cedar sauna, showers with shampoo, conditioner, body wash, shave cream & razors, lockers with personalized lock code, cold washcloths, fresh towels, ice water. The relaxation room had a large, hot foot bath with beds scattered throughout, a fireplace, dim lighting, and assorted teas and cucumber water. The aqua terrace was beautiful. Outside 15-person hot tub, with a fireplace across from it. The gym was fully equipped with treadmills, bikes, machines, free-weights.

Overall this was a great getaway and I will most likely come back either with my girlfriends or my mother for mothers day. Wonderful place!

Room Tip: Stayed in one of the cottages and I thought it was amazing! Cottage 222!

This was our first visit to Mirbeau and I must stay for the most part it was everything that I hoped it would be! The room was perfect, the food was delicious, the spa area was so relaxing along with our wonderful massage treatments. Most importantly the service throught the resort, was absolutely the best I have ever experienced at any hotel we have ever stayed at. The reason for the 4 stars was the reservation mix up. This was an overnight stay and we wanted a couple's massage along with dinner. the girl who I spoke to when making our reservation, and after booking our room, suggested that we do a spa/dinner package. She assured me that it was the best deal. Therefore I agreed to the massage appointment for 5 and dinner at 7:30. However after checking in and arriving for the massage appointment we realized that not only had a couple's massage not been booked, but our clinician choices were also not correct. With some insistence from my husband, they were able to finally fit us in for a couple's massage at 7 and dinner at 9...quite a bit later than we wanted, but happy that they were able to correct their mistake. However once we checked with the front desk to make sure the spa/dinner package deal was still in place, we discovered that this package had never been submitted....but instead we had been set up for a day visit spa/lunch package (with our meal originally scheduled at 7, this doesn't quite make sense). With help from Crystal at the front desk and a few phone calls, we were finally able to get everything corrected....however it took a request from me to receive any compensation for our troubles. While Crystal was excellent in correcting this, as I feel she went above and beyond to fix this for us, we were somewhat dissapointed with the manager on duty that night as even though they did give us a wine pairing with our dinner (on the house), this was only because I pushed for some compensation. In additon, the manager never approached us at dinner to apologize, even though we saw him at a nearby table doing the same. While we loved Mirbeau and hope to return again soon, this mix-up, did take away from our overnight relaxation. I have to add too that upon checkout, we also discovered an extra charge on our bill that should not have been there, which was a little frustrating, since I had spent well over an hour the day before, trying to correct all of this. So I completely recommend Mirbeau, but I would caution you to be very careful when making your reservation and would suggest that you follow up with your "package deal" before your arrival, and would suggest that you review your bill carefully at check out.

We have been to Europe 40 times and to South America and China. The Mirbeau is where we go to relax. We try to get there as much as possible, ideally during each season. The Mirbeau is like living in an elegant French village. We have been in France a lot and this beats the typical French village! Each season is beautiful and totally different. What doesn't change is the best spa experience on this planet. DO NOT FORGET YOUR SWIMMING SUIT. The outdoor hot tub is totally unique and unbelievably relaxing like their relation room in the spa which looks like something out of ancient Rome. My wife takes exercise classes there and the workout room is top notch. The dining room is elegant and one-of-a-kind. There is no prettier and romantic setting in the world. This is not a cookie-cutter place. But most of all, the staff gets to know you and they treat you like family. If you want a one-of-a-kind experince away from the chains try the Mirbeau. For a hotel this size, the facilities are unbelievable. It is our second home! Put it this way, a stay at the Mirbeau gets me out of the dog house.

Room Tip: The cottages are roomier and are great for the summer and warm weather. In the winter and cold weat...
