Resort Facts

  • Mirbeau, loosely translated as “reflected beauty,” is inspired in part by the soft light, warm colors and introspective character found in the paintings of renowned French Impressionist Claude Monet. Mirbeau Inn & Spa was designed to evoke the warmth and comfort of a private French wine country estate and give you the feeling that you have truly “gotten away” even if you are only a few miles from home.

  • The Inn and its surrounding buildings and special gardens call to mind an old-world blend of casual elegance, unique and interesting architecture and classic pleasures.  The chateau-like Inn and Spa buildings, including the four freestanding Cottages, replicate a private country estate that curves gracefully around the beautiful gardens and ponds inspired by Monet’s own gardens in Giverny, near Paris.

  • The Village of Skaneateles is a beautifully petite “walking village” located directly on the north shore of pristine Skaneateles Lake, one of the purest and most beautiful lakes in the world.  Skaneateles is a scenic village with quaint, tree-lined streets, 19th Century homes, interesting antique shops, boutiques, art galleries and restaurants.

  • Skaneateles and the Finger Lakes region are well known as a four season destination and provide an abundance of attractions and activities through out the year for guests of all ages, including: seasonal festivals, vineyard and wine tasting tours, sailing, waterskiing, trout fishing, boating, golf, polo, hiking, dinner boat cruises, horseback riding, hot-air balloon rides, downhill skiing, snowboarding, cross-country skiing and ice-skating.
