This place was just great. It's right downtown such that we never had to even think about moving the car if we didn't want to. We took the car into the park when we wanted some freedom but didn't need to due to the proximity of the free buses from the inn, too. Super close to the park, too (less... More

Forenote: I intentionally selected this place to take advantage of half-price settings winter rate, without breakfast and maid services. Location: In west side of Bar Harbor town, surrounded by other B&B and residential areas. about 1/2 mile to center of Bar Harbor commercialized areas. History: Built 1864 Renovated steadily while keeping the good old atmosphere. Interior Decor: Very old classic... More

I have already stayed at the Mira Monte Inn about 14 years ago and never forgott the great experience we had there. Therefore it was clear to me that I wanted to stay at the Mira Monte Inn again, when we wre planning another trip to Maine this year. And it was as good as I remembered. The room was... More

A stay at the Mira Monte is like travelling back to Victorian times. We loved the old house - even with its disadvantages from aging - and the very kind and generous owner. Socialising with the long year owner and other guests is easy while having (free) wine and cheese and other goodies at the living room's fireplace in the... More

Headed up to Bar Harbor the weekend after Columbus Day to hike in Acadia National Park. Marian, the Innkeeper and lifelong Bar Harbor resident, has a lovely property an easy walk to the waterfront and downtown commercial district. The corner Malvern Room has a really comfy four poster king bed, Franklin Stove fireplace, and a balcony overlooking the gardens. In... More

Had a great visit, the young lady from Texas that cleaned our suite was a true gem, I'm so sorry I can't remember her name. The only disappointment was being asked for final payment on balance due as soon as we arrived in the main house. The houses are old and can use a face lift but it has its... More

Although the renovation is probably years (and a new owner) away, this fantastic property is in need of a face lift. To be sure, some travelers love old and worn our furniture, creaky floors and older bathroom fixtures -- they find charm in such conditions. For the price, however, I would have expected a more updated and thoughtfully renovated facility.... More

We traveled with friends to Bar Harbor, first time there and first time at a B&B. We LOVED it ALL, Bar and the Mira Monte. We really didn't know what to expect but what we experienced was great. Here are my bullet points: We stayed in the Rockaway room which is located at the top of the stairs. Don't let... More

Definitely better choices within walking distance of Bar Harbor. We stayed in the Miller room and it was in a converted garage out back, up very steep stairs. There were 5 bottles of body lotion, but not one shampoo or conditioner. It looked like there was a dispensers in the shower, but it had been removed. The headboard was not... More

My husband & I have visited the Mira Monte in Bar Harbor three or four times. It's close enough to town to walk to all the shops & restaurants & ice cream shops. My husband LOVES the breakfast, there's always a huge selection of food: pancakes, waffles, muffins, quiche, fruit, bagels, coffee, tea & juices to name a few. I... More
