- Parking On Site
The inspiration for the architecture of Mirbeau Inn & Spa at the Pinehills was taken from Impressionist master Claude Monet’s country house in Giverny, France. French instrumental music plays outdoors as visitors take in the impressive three-story, red-shuttered stucco building. The guests keep their voices low, and the hallways, lined with framed prints of Monet’s work, are long and quiet. The interiors, which include custom furniture and fabrics throughout, were designed by Linda Dower (who co-owns the hotel with her husband Gary) and Westley Spruill of Boston-based Deeson Design.
Bed and Bath
The guestrooms are airy and plush, with a rich color scheme of deep grays, blues and yellows. The bedding is custom-made, and most rooms have curtains and bed skirts patterned with toile. Faux exposed beams in the ceilings add a bit of rustic flair, and gas fireplaces keep the rooms feeling cozy. The bathrooms are wonderfully spacious, with a simple, unfussy palette based on white and black; each one is equipped a clawfoot soaking tub, double vanities and a stand-up shower.
The hotel’s big draw is the spa, which offers massages, scrubs, facials, body wraps, manicures and couples treatments. It also features a full-scale gym, in which yoga and fitness classes are offered daily. Henri-Marie, one of two on-site restaurants, is located in a reproduction of a 19th-century family chapel. Executive chef Stephen Coe prepares French cuisine such as sous-vide beef Wellington with foie gras, truffled mushroom duxelle, poivre sauce and a crispy egg. The Bistro & Wine Bar serves more casual interpretations of French bistro classics; the steak frites are to die for, and other highlights include tuna crudo made with a spicy crème fraîche and pickled local seaweed.
In the Area
The inn is located within the Pinehills, a sprawling planned community that features two acclaimed 18-hole championship golf courses for seasonal play. The community village green, where a handful of shops and casual eateries are located, is within walking distance of the inn. And it’s a 10-minute drive to the waterfront in downtown Plymouth, where you’ll encounter an abundance of intriguing historic landmarks relating to the Pilgrims — Plymouth Rock and the Mayflower, for starters. The town center is also lined with stores, from upscale boutiques to cheeky souvenir shops and restaurants.
How to Get There
We were there for a wedding and decided to go "up scale". It was worth it! Although a busy schedule prevented visiting the spa, we enjoyed the rooms, lounge with live music, friendly bar, great meals!
This friendly and comfortable inn was the location for our Thanksgiving Dinner, 2018. Professional at every level without going over-the-top. Being able to check our coats is a plus that most places do not offer. I've eaten many turkey dinners and this one was the best, and that included my Dad's cooking that was excellent.
This is the perfect place to getaway and recharge. The rooms were beautiful, the soaking tub was a real treat and the beds were so comfortable. The spa amenities are available to hotel guests and unlike any I have experienced before, especially the resting area. Had dinner and breakfast in the restaurant and the food was terrific. I will definitely be back!
This hotel was gorgeous, stylish, and a gem in terms of the scenery, design, dining, spa, and service. The rooms were spacious and lovely complete with a fireplace.The Wine Bistro served delicious meals and the spa was wonderful. You do not want to miss the fantastic experience of staying in this beautiful hotel and spa.
This is a beautiful hotel and spa, the grounds are magnificent, situated among a majestic forest and in a quaint little village, truly peaceful and a lovely experience. My only negative moment was with the host of the dining room, not terribly helpful but did manage to arrange something for us at the last moment.
