Reviewed 18 September 2011

We found Mira Monte online and took a chance. We were very pleased with the location, our room, the breakfast, and the entire experience. The owner and staff were all very friendly and helpful, offering suggestions for dining and hiking in the park. The room was spotless and comfortable and we had a nice little balcony looking out over a lovely flower garden. From 5 to 7 each day they set up wine and cheese in the parlor which provided a great opportunity to sit and visit with other guests and the owner or manager. The only thing that was less than perfect was our mattress which seemed a little "tired", and parking was a bit tight one evening, but neither of those things seriously detracted from the experience. We enjoyed it very much.

We vacation in Bar Harbor every year and the Mira Monte just makes our time more special. The rooms are unique and inviting, with old world charm and every modern amenity you could possibly need. But that's not what brings us back... The breakfasts are delicious with a comfortable at home feel. But that's not what brings us back either...The warm and welcoming staff here feel more likeold friends than caregivers in the service industry. But it is Marian herself, the Grande Dame of Bar harbor with her uncanny knowlrdege of all things Desert Island whom we miss as soon as we leave. She is wise in so many fields and a master of conversation. Not stopping at the Mira Monte while in Bar Harbor would be a missed opportunity to get the most from your vacation.

Stayed in South Suite for 5 Nights in Sept. room was as we expected no surprises, plenty of towels and toiletries.
Staff was exceptional, great recommendations on dining and activities.
Choices at breakfast buffet were plentiful, self serve and informal (unlike another b&b we stayed at that had one option and you needed to commit to a set seating time every day)
Baked goods were excellent.
Hot coffee/tea available prior to breakfast.
Very short walk to town.
Easy off-street parking.
TV/Internet worked as expected.
We would not hesitate to stay at the Mira Monte again.

Room Tip: South Suite was a nice suite, living area was easy to relax in. Small kitchen setup with fridge is...

Mira Monte Inn is a beautiful B&B located 2-3 blocks from downtown Bar Harbor. The Inn has many wonderful family rooms, a sunroom and front porch. Our guestroom had a nice sitting area and balcony. The afternoon wine & cheese was a nice meet and great with the other couples staying in the inn. The breakfast was excellent!

We spent three nights at the Mira Monte Inn while exploring Bar Harbor. The rooms are charming and comfortable. Mary and her staff go out of their way to make sure that you are pleased with the accomodations. The breakfasts are scrumptious. The blueberry pudding is a "must try". After a long day sightseeing and climbing to the top of Cadillac Mountain, it was wonderful to relax with assorted cheeses and wine on the front porch before departing for our lobster dinner. (We tried a different restraunt each night. Mary was "right on" with her recommendations.)

This was our first experience at a Bed & Breakfast. We were very pleased. The staff was very friendly and welcoming. We were very satisfied with the location; only a 5-minute walk to downtown and a short drive to the entrance of Acadia National Park. We would definately stay here again.

Room Tip: Very comfortable and relaxing room. We stayed in the St. Sauveur room. Although our room was off t...

I'm always pleased when the rooms actually look like the advertised pictures! Our stay in the Louisburg room was lovely. This room is all the way in the back, very quiet, with a little private balcony. Very good size room, very clean. We found breakfast to have plenty of variety, and we enjoyed being able to enjoy our breakfast on the porch, in the dining room, on our balcony, in the garden, etc. Easy 2 block walk to the village square.
