“Unexpected charm of MiraMonte B&B”
Reviewed 25 September 2011

Marian Burns, the owner offers wine & cheese from 5:00 to 7:00 each day and holds court telling stories, giving advice.. so much fun. It’s a big B&B, so there are a lot of people chatting. Fresh-baked chocolate chip cookies and coffee are available afternoons and evenings. We stayed in two rooms, the Central Station and Newport, and preferred the latter because of its classy decor. Both were roomy and very quiet. The location is fine, it's fun to walk around the town. The owner and staff are truly local to Bar Harbor and have a lot of personal stories to share. They couldn't be more hospitable. There is a lot of beautiful furniture, lovely china, and a buffet breakfast that is fresh and imaginative.

Room Tip: Some rooms have been updated; it's worth the extra charge.

My boyfriend and I stayed at Mira Monte Inn Last June 2011 and it was a very special and romantic, relaxed and welcoming stay. Everybody at the Inn is very approachable. The place itself is just within walking distance from the restaurants/bars/shopping areas downtown. And the food is warm!!! We always had full brunch! We moved to 3 different rooms but we didn't mind the process, every room is special. My boyfriend really liked them all.
If we are going back to visit Bar Harbor, we will stay at Mira Monte Inn again. It reminds me of my grandma's old big house with a warm loving feeling.
Couldn't stop telling my friends about the Inn!

We had a wonderful time staying at the Mira Monte Inn. We found it online and it definitely met our expectations. The staff were very friendly and helpful, we loved being able to walk back and forth into town, the food was amazing, the room was large and inviting, the porch a nice outdoor option, and the free "happy hour" a great plus. It was nice having a buffet style breakfast and different seating options. Everyone we met staying there was very pleased and many were repeat guests, so that tells you something!

Room Tip: The Rockaway was great -- very quiet, nice view from cute porch.

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!
