Mirbeau Inn and Spa
“Located in the storybook Village of Skaneateles (skinny-AT-liss) in central New York State’s Finger Lakes Wine Country, about 20 miles southwest of Syracuse. The Spa Resort is set on 12 acres against a back drop of a dense stand of 100-foot high spruce trees moments from Skaneateles Lake, one of the cleanest and most picturesque lakes in America.
Mirbeau is a luxury Resort combining the amenities of a boutique country inn, world-class spa and nationally-acclaimed fine dining, all with the elegant comforts of a wine country estate. Mirbeau, loosely translated as “reflected beauty,” is inspired in part by the soft light, warm colors and introspective character found in the paintings of renowned French Impressionist Claude Monet. Mirbeau Inn & Spa was designed to evoke the warmth and comfort of a private French wine country estate and give you the feeling that you have truly “gotten away” even if you are only a few miles from home.”
As for weather, please know that at the end of July in this area of NY, the average daily highs are typically about 80F and the nightly lows about 60F. These are averages of course, so things can be significantly warmer or cooler on any given day.
Mirbeau is located at 851 W Genesee Street Rd., Skaneateles, NY 13152
