We stayed for 2 nights in a room with 2 queen beds as we stayed with our 2 young kids (4 and 9). The place is very beautiful inside and out. Our room was pretty big and the bathroom was huge. It had a clawfoot tub and a walk in shower. The hotel let the kids feed the fish in their pond in the morning which they enjoyed. We ate breakfast at the hotel one morning. They provide you a continental breakfast in the price of the room and they let you choose something off their menu and pay the difference if you want. We tried the french toast which was very good and the kids had the donuts. The other morning we just grabbed some muffins and croissants to go and they gave us a couple carryout boxes for that which was nice. The hotel is located close to downtown Skaneateles but not necessarily within walking distance.

I went to the spa recently with a friend . We had a nice massage and enjoyed the spa but wanted to go to the wine bar after. We were extremely disappointed! We were ignored by the bartender even though we had a menu in our hand and stood around for 15 minutes . We left and went somewhere else.

Stayed only one night at the beginning of August,

Had dinner at their restaurant which turned out to be quite a nice experience.. staff,food,bar and wine selection and general ambience at the inn was good...fun to watch the fish in the pretty pond like area which is positioned in the center of the attractive grounds.

Do have however, one negative comment and one suggestion ...we booked a ground floor king in the "cottage area "..Upon arrival felt that staircase leading down to room was unclean.There were many established (and large) cobwebs with spiders lurking around the main door to our room and also hanging from the staircase. Also noticed on the outside patio at restaurant, surrounding the light fixtures, spiders and webs as well.
We come from the Toronto area and have similar weather and bugs as upper state New York does.
I clean outside areas daily where pests may settle in the summer and kindly suggest the inn should do the same thing...maybe even try twice a day .

Also found rooms a bit dark despite keeping window coverings opened..perhaps changing the paint color from burnt orange to a cream shade or a soft pastel would help.

Even though we had some disappointments during our stay I would still recommend this inn to friends. The general area is so very pretty and relaxing and do feel The Mirabeau Inn deserves credit for managing a nice place at such a very reasonable price. We would consider staying here again.

This is a beautiful property with a great spa, great restaurant, great bar and wine selection. We have stayed here at least once a year since they opened. We used to live in the area and always look forward to our return. The Monet-inspried gardens are spectacular and now this is a popular wedding setting. The service, however, is inconsistent and we are always treated like first time visitors, i.e. we aren't asked, it is just assumed that we need everything explained to us. We don't. If the management just made the effort to recognize returning guests and perhaps acknowledge their loyalty, this would be a much better experience.

Room Tip: Especially when the weather permits, it is really nice to have a room with a deck to enjoy the garde...

Took my wife for a surprise overnight stay at Le Mirbeau - she (and I) could not have been more pleased.

First, our check-in / reception was smooth and flawless. Though check-in is not usually until 4pm, we notified them in advance that we would be coming early, and they were able to have our room ready for us after a very short wait around 1:30. While waiting, a random staff member also came by and offered us drinks; very hospitable.

The room itself (we stayed in a cottage room) was utterly gorgeous - one of the best we've ever stayed in. It had a great view of the grounds and was extremely comfortable. Wi-fi was available, and not password protected so very easy to log on with my iPad. The bathroom was amazing - definitely use the tub while you are there! There was turn-down service where a couple bottles of water were provided as well. Our only quibble was that they offered pack-and-plays for $25 - at the existing room price I would have liked that they would have just set it up free of charge (as even a Holiday Inn does) but one can't have everything.

Speaking of the baby, it was not a problem whatsoever to have our 7-month old along. He enjoyed looking out over the pond and feeding the koi, and while the main grounds aren't stroller friendly, it was not a hardship to carry him around and enjoy the sights. We had no problem bringing him to the restaurant as well.

The spa facilities are very nice as well. Lots of water/tea to be had, and the outdoor jacuzzi was very relaxing. It seems a bit weird that they would prohibit cell phones, music players, etc., but allow patrons within to make as much noise as they would like - I'd go with either no noise or a free for all - but it was not a problem for me to bring in my iPad and just read.

My wife and I both had amazing spa treatments. My masseuse was great - I think her name was like Amanda or Kelli - and she was courteous and gave a tremendous massage. I like here how the massage lasted for the full 100 minutes - often times, they are cut short by 5, which is annoying. The only part I did not enjoy was when I was on my back, and the chandelier was right in my face. Even with it dimmed, it felt like a very gentle interrogation light, and made it hard to relax through what was otherwise an amazing neck and face massage. I was very happy in some ways when that part ended and she put a towel over my eyes. Regardless, the massage was amazing and worth the high price.

Our stay included a continental breakfast - a nice selection of pastries, fruits and cheeses. We complimented it with a decadent piece of french toast, but would have been just fine with the continental.

The last quibble we might raise is that it is best to call them directly during reservation business hours. An initial inquiry email went unanswered, and a request made with the front desk for reservations to call me back the next morning (her suggestion) was not fulfilled. Once however, I did make my reservation and made contact with them, replies were quite expedient, and as above, they did a great job with an early check-in.

All in all, we were incredibly happy with our stay, and will most certainly be back at some point in the future!

Room Tip: We had a room to which we could drive right up to; very convenient as we were road-tripping with a b...
