“Bliss!”
Reviewed April 25, 2013

You will feel like you have escaped to the French countryside at this cozy NY inn. The service at this spa is the best you will find in the area. They cater to your every need! The grounds and decor are gorgeous, and the overall atmosphere is extremely relaxing. The chateau-style rooms are so romantic with the stone fireplace and claw-footed tub in the expansive spa bathroom. What's better than being able to walk around in your bathrobe all day? From the moment we woke up early to take a dip in the AquaSpa with a fresh cup of coffee to the traditional French cuisine at dinner--we felt like we were royalty. I would recommend this for any couple looking for a romantic weekend that is close-by (especially in the NY/PA area). All of this loveliness does come at a price, but I believe it is justified. They run a lot of specials--so keep your eye out for them. The included breakfast, use of spa facilities, and seclusion of this resort will impress you. Enjoy!

Room Tip: All rooms are divine! Does help to be close to the main hotel area in the winter/fall months.

My husband and I were looking for a getaway for the weekend, that was within driving distance from home. I did a search online for getaways in NY state and Mirbeau Inn and Spa popped up. The reviews on Trip Advisor were very good and it was only a 3.5 hour drive from our home in Ottawa, Ontario. I booked a standard room online in the main building, and away we went.

When we arrived Friday evening, we received a very warm welcome, and were told we were getting a 'club room'. This was a free upgrade which included breakfast, a bottle of wine every night, a plate of fruit and cheese, and cookies and milk in the evening, chocolates on the pillow. But the best part about the club room was it was away from all the regular rooms, had it's own private living area with a Keurig coffee machine and private patio, and only 2 other club rooms shared this area. The room itself was spacious and beautifully laid out with a view of the pond and gardens. The bathroom area was lovely and the bathrobes they provide were comfortable. The bedding was also really nice.The inn is only 13(?) years old but has a wonderful historical feel. The designer did an amazing job with all the furnishings and finishing touches. It really is a beautiful place.

We booked a couples massage for Saturday late afternoon, and headed down to the spa. There is this wonderful quiet area that is right out of Greek mythology. There's a hot foot bath, beds, music, fireplace, and it's very tranquil. We waited there for our massage therapists and were called right on time. The couples massage was very nice but very quick (50 minutes). We went to the very nice 15 person hot tub after, which was outside. That too was nice but the hot tub needs some maintenance as some of the jets weren't working. I reported it to the main desk.

Our free continental breakfast was served in the main dining room. The girls working in there were very attentive and friendly, and the food was very nice. There was an assortment of meats, cheeses, fruit, yogurts and home made granola. Delicious! We chose to go into the quaint little village for dinner both nights and hit the local spots and enjoyed seafood. Very good. I found it odd that people were eating breakfast in their bathrobes in the main dining room, but it's acceptable to walk around the entire resort and eat in the dining room for breakfast and lunch (not dinner) in your bathrobe.

I would absolutely recommend this inn, for a couples getaway or a girls shopping trip. They offer fitness classes included in the price, however, I did not partake as my husband wasn't into that. I would definitely do that with the girls.

Wonderful stay, very comfortable, friendly staff and quite affordable. Thanks!!!!

Room Tip: The main building is lovely and a short walk to the spa. The cottages are a short walk away and it c...

We were both exhausted because of family circumstances, and I suggested we have a spa vacation rather than going to Florida or similar. It worked out beautifully. My husband was sceptical, but after his first treatment - an Ashiatsu massage, in which the therapist hangs from poles on the ceiling and uses her feet to provide a fabulous massage. He was impressed. And it knocked the stuffing out of him -- stress-wise. He relaxed more and more each day.

Well trained staff, excellent food, comfortably small property, excellent concierge service, great restaurant and restaurant staff. The bedding was fabulous! Only complaint was the bathroom was awfully dark.

Room Tip: We stayed in a villa, which was removed from the main building. We liked the quietness.

My husband & I recently stayed at Mirbeau. I haven't been there in years, but it still was romantic and relaxing. What makes Mirbeau outstanding is their staff. How nice it is to be around such charming and friendly staff, it really makes the stay so much more enjoyable. Jenn ( front desk / reception); Sarah (dining room hostess); Maria (waitress); Matt (In-room bath); and Jillian ( turn-down service) were wonderful. We stayed in room # 125, it is on the second floor and overlooks the pond. The best thing about Mirbeau rooms is by far the mattress! The most comfortable sleep. In your room is a fireplace, large tub and shower, and DVD player. I did not get a spa service this time, but Mirbeau allows guests to use their spa facilities. The eucalyptus steam room, sauna, and outdoor whirlpool are very relaxing. I plan on staying here again with my girlfriends. We will request rooms # 122 & # 123 which are two adjoining rooms each with two queen beds. We stayed here during the mid-week so it was very quiet and relaxing, you felt as if the whole place was just yours! I will definitely be back!

Room Tip: As stated above, we like room # 125. It is on the second floor and has a king bed. But with girlfrie...

My spouse and I booked a short trip to Mirbeau just to relax and get away from home. We could not have hoped for a better stay. Room was outstanding, service was beyond expectations.

Spent a great deal of time in the outdoor hot tub. Something different about being in 102 degree water with snow falling on you; from the hot top, to the relaxation room to further unwind.

The meals and service at Mirbeau were excellent. Richard at the bar remembered what we were drinking from the night before and offered up the drinks. Breakfast and dinner selections were excellent as was the service. Mallory (at breakfast) and Courtney (at dinner) also remembered us from the previous night and asked if we wanted the same beverages as we had previously had.

Did have a problem losing the keys to the car, but not a big issue, Liz at the front desk arranged to have a spare key made for us and actually picked it up in the morning on the way into work.

Cannot say enough about the stay and the staff - everything was excellent.

After visiting Mirbeau over several years, I have noticed an overall decline. During my first visit everything was impeccable from service to cleanliness. Upon our recent visit we reserved two rooms for our group of five. We requested adjoining rooms but were told that none were available ( no big deal). We arrived early as we had scheduled spa treatments. Our room was not ready when we arrived,but were told we would be called when it was ready (we were never called). At 4:00 we went to the front desk and asked with no apologies from the front desk for not having called. When we arrived in our room we noticed it was not ready. No robes, hair dryer, cups for coffee, mini fridge was missing glasses and a rollaway bed that we had requested was not there. After dinner two other members of our group had spa treatments. At 9:00 we all met up in one room. We were talking and laughing as we had not seen each other in quite a while. No music, no television and not extraordinarily late. Around 9:15 we received a call from the front desk to quiet down which would have been a perfectly fine request, had Crystal not decided to give a 5 minute lecture on respect and having respect for guests. We certainly have respect for other guests and would have quickly complied with a quick polite request. Overall little touches mean a lot and they seem to be lacking more and more each year. The spa is great , but not as well maintained as in years past. A plastic bag of chocolates left in our room seemed an odd touch. A broken screen door and air conditioner last year seemed to make this years events the icing on the cake. All five of us have spent time at Mirbeau on several separate occasions throughout the year. As a group after visiting for 5 years we have decided to go elsewhere next year. It is unfortunate since we had regarded Mirbeau as a special place.

On a trip from Boston to Buffalo my wife and I planned an overnight stay at Mirbeau. As others have accurately stated, we were greeted by a helpful an attentive staff. The room we had was very comfortable and the nice touch of having classical music playing on the Bose wave radio as we entered the room was an unexpected surprise. But I must say that our expectations about a fine dining experience were sadly not met. If fact I am being kind by calling the meal mediocre. Barely edible would be closer to what we both experienced. The food was under cooked, the presentation was slap dash and the high price added insult to injury. Moving past the unfortunate experience in the dining room we did find something to rave about, The bathrobes. Yes the bathrobes. So fantastically comfortable that we bought two to take home.
