- 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
Not only were the treatments wonderful, the relaxing space is superb! Comfy lounge beds, a foot soaking tub and fireplace complete the calming, relaxing space. There is also an outdoor hot tub. Even mid-week it did fill up near the top of the hour but clears out as soon as people go into treatments.
One of the best features were the thick, plush robes which you can wear even to the Bistro to have lunch. We were worried we would be the only ones but there were plenty of others in robes too! The food in the Bistro is absolutely delicious!
Perfect spot for a girls weekend! They accommodated 4 appointments at the same time at the spa. The spa was beautiful with a steam room and lounge area. Lots of cucumber water and healing teas. We ate at the restaurant and watched the Pat's playoff game. The food was great, drinks were great! The actual room was beautiful and french inspired. I am looking forward to going back!
We had brunch at the bistro recently. The menu is small but the food was excellent. The atmosphere was so peaceful. There was a small group of musicians playing in the distance. Our waiter was very attentive and courteous; always checking to see if we needed anything. After brunch we checked into the Spa for the afternoon, used all the facilities and rested in the quiet room until we were called for our appointment in the Spa. This facility is beautiful, tranquil and just amazing.
The spa was clean, beautiful and extremely well run. I had massage, facial and pedicure. Each professional I dealt with was wonderful. Each treatment exceed my expectations. They all ran on time but I never felt rushed. I would recommend this place to everyone!
Beautiful Inn and Spa. Rooms are gorgeous. Location is great. Restaurant needs WORK. We had a breakfast and dinner there. Not only is the menu limited but the morning waitstaff and management team are awful. It was as if they picked their waitress off the street and put her in a uniform. The hostess/manager needs to take a course in hospitality. Luckily the Blueberry Muffin is in walking distance and serves a great breakfast. We had dinner at the East Bay Restaurant twice and lunch at 42 Degrees Restaurant. Both are fabulous.
