Mirbeau to Open Second Inn & Spa Outside Cape Cod
Are you a fan of the Mirbeau Inn & Spa in upstate New York? If so, you might be excited to learn that the award-winning property has just announced it will be opening a second location just outside of Cape Cod in the Pinehills in the spring of 2014.
Offering 50 rooms, the new Mirbeau will no doubt provide some healthy competition to the area's bazillion bed and breakfasts. Plus, the property will be only four hours from New York City and just under an hour from Boston.
The inn itself will be designed in the spirit of an old manor house in the French countryside, with Monet-inspired gardens. There will be fireplaces in every guest and massage room, and a restaurant and wine bar on-site. Not to mention, the property will overlook Pinehills Golf Club, which contains the only two 5-star public courses in all of New England.
We spent a night at the Mirbeau in March and found it to be a very relaxing experience. Its proximity to Skaneateles Lake (pronounced Skan-ee-atlas), Finger Lake wineries, and the often underrated city of Syracuse make it a solid retreat during the summer, while the spa and in-room fireplaces were what was needed to set the mood for a little romance during the colder winter months (it snowed during our stay).
As a result, our expectations are high for the new location. Stay tuned for more information and photos as they become available over the next year.
