Mirbeau Inn & Spa

Plymouth, Massachusetts

As a frequent traveler, I’m often asked for recommendations for destination spas within comfortable driving distance from Westchester. There just aren’t as many as I’d like to be able to give an enthusiastic nod to; indeed, some of the well-known originals are in need of a full refresh. But this lovely new inn and spa has much about it to recommend. Located in Plymouth, just north of the Cape, it’s the sister property of the upstate New York Mirbeau—and it’s even a slightly shorter drive here than to the original in Skaneateles, New York.  

Since opening last summer, it has already been named to Destination Weddings & Honeymoons’ “Where to Honeymoon in 2015list. But whether you’re looking for a romantic retreat or a girls-only getaway, consider this charming 50-room Parisian country manor-like inn with koi ponds, a soothing waterfall, and gorgeously landscaped gardens designed to resemble those depicted by Claude Monet. Indeed, “mirbeau” loosely translates to “reflected beauty”—a fitting tribute to its world-class spa and gracious architecture, interiors, and gardens. Cozy fireplaces, oversized soaking tubs, custom Mirbeau beds—which are so delightfully restful that when we inquire about purchasing one, the front desk says it’s a common request—and those sumptuous views, all contribute to a private-estate ambience.

Explore: The 14,000-square-foot spa is the crown jewel of the interior. It’s a lavish relaxation space lined with hand-painted murals and frescoes, supported by stone columns, and home to a heated foot pool and fireplace. Should you want to rouse yourself, there’s a full fitness center complete with the latest equipment, indoor cycling theater, yoga studio, and full class schedule. Guests also have access to two 18-hole golf courses and 10 miles of wooded walking trails. Plymouth offers such varied historical attractions as the Pilgrim Hall Museum (www.pilgrimhallmuseum.org) and Plimoth Plantation (www.plimoth.org), as well as fishing tours, whale watching, and other excursions.

Dine: Henri-Marie, located in what could pass as a chapel, serves French-inspired cuisine for fine dining in the evening, while the Bistro & Wine Bar offers a more casual menu and atmosphere.

But the most fun in season is the Aqua Terrace, an outdoor space with hot tub and fireplace where light, spa-friendly fare is available throughout the day.

Insider’s tip: Ask about special packages—French-inspired painting classes, yoga and wellness, etc.
