Mirbeau Inn & Spa Plymouth

A French resort in Massachusetts

For those who daydream of relaxing at a quiet chateau in the French countryside without the bother of a trip across the ocean, Mirbeau Inn & Spa Plymouth in Plymouth, Massachusetts, is just the answer. The 50-room property, less than an hour from Boston, sits adjacent to the Pinehills Golf Club, but feels worlds away.

Driving up to the property, you’re greeted with what looks like a small castle with turrets. Peer around and you’ll notice the grounds resemble French impressionist Claude Monet’s “Water Lilies” series. Inside the hotel, attentive staff stands ready to greet you and treat you as a pampered guest.

Despite all of this, Mirbeau mostly draws in crowds with its destination spa. The 14,000-square-foot facility includes an indoor resting area with a heated foot massage pool; an Aqua Terrace with a whirlpool, waterfall and fireplace; and a robust calendar of fitness classes, from barre to guided meditation.

Our Inspector's Highlights

  • Outdoor spaces look like a scene from a Monet painting and were indeed inspired by his gardens in Giverny — an iconic lily pond and green footbridge complete the serene surroundings.
  • Sticking with the theme, The Bistro & Wine Bar offers classic French cuisine with a New England twist. Enjoy favorites such as steak frites and mussels marinières, alongside pours from an excellent wine list.
  • It’s easy to while the day away at the inn’s luxurious 20-room spa. Indulgent treatments, indoor and outdoor lounges, a large hot tub, a spacious gym and a café are sure to please.
  • An ideal base for golfers, Mirbeau Inn is on the 18th hole of the Rees Jones course and adjacent to the Jack Nicklaus-designed greens at the Pinehills Golf Club.
  • Just 10 minutes from historic Plymouth, this luxury hotel puts you within arm’s reach of the town’s charming streets, but is far enough away to provide a respite from the flocks of sightseeing families.

Things to Know

  • The beautiful property is a hot spot for weddings, so be prepared to share spaces with bridal parties — sometimes even more than one — especially in the summer.
  • Make sure to ask for a room overlooking the gardens, if that’s important to you. Otherwise you may have a view of the golf course.
  • Leave the kids at home — this is definitely a more adult-focused inn.

The Rooms

  • Choose from 16 accommodations in the Manor House or 34 rooms and suites in the attached Guest House, which is located above the expansive spa.
  • You won't have trouble falling asleep at this Plymouth hotel. All of the generously sized rooms and suites feature luxurious mattresses custom-designed exclusively for the inn and topped with plush bedding.
  • Standard features in each room include fireplaces and large soaking tubs. Some have full balconies or patios for taking in the meticulously manicured grounds.
  • The classic décor definitely leans French, with elegant fabrics, solid wood furniture and cozy chairs perfect for reading by the fire.
  • For the ultimate romantic escape, book one of the two Turret Suites in the Manor House. The major appeal here is the spectacular balcony overlooking the picturesque gardens.

The Restaurants

  • Offering bistro fare for breakfast, lunch and dinner, The Bistro & Wine Bar is Mirbeau’s signature restaurant. The casually elegant dining room is the place to dine on fresh New England seafood prepared simply and classically.
  • The Bistro’s Sunday Jazz Brunch serves tasty dishes like brioche French toast, chocolate crepes and ham and cheese quiche. Enjoy your sweet feast alongside live local music for a festive end to your weekend.
  • Open seasonally, The Garden Bar provides alfresco dining among the gorgeous grounds. Not only can you sup on wood-fired pizzas and Italian cocktails, after dinner you can snag an Ugg blanket from staff and sit by the fire pit to unwind in style.
