“Wonderful, wonderful inn in Bar Harbor.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2007

My husband, myself, and our two children (aged 11 and 18) stayed for a week. The first night, we were in a small suite, then changed to the condo (so we had a kitchen to save some $$ on meals!). Everyone was friendly and helpful, and *very* knowledgeable about what to do around Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park. We have vacationed in Bar Harbor many times, and still learned about new things to do and new restaurants. One of the nicest features of Mira Monte is the wine and cheese hour every evening on the porch. A perfect time to relax at the end of the day, chat with the pleasant other guests, and have a (complimentary) glass of wine. Our 11 year old son especially liked this, as he thus met all the other children staying at Mira Monte. Another fantastic feature is that the Inn is about a block from the nearest Laundromat (we do lots of outdoor stuff in Acadia, and get dirty) and a block from downtown so one can walk to restaurants in the evening—no struggling for parking. Overall a very very good stay—we will certainly stay at Mira Monte again when we return.

We first experienced the Mira Monte 10 years ago during our honeymoon. We stayed in one of the suites then, and so enjoyed our stay, we returned for our 10th anniversary. We stayed in one of the rooms in the house this time (the Agamont). We had an amazing time once again. The weather was comfortable and even cool at nights...in other words, picture perfect for us southerners sweltering in the August heat. The inn was again exceptional in the breakfast, the wine and cheese, and the knowledge of the staff. Marian Burns, the inn's gracious owner and hostess, has been doing this for 27 years. She loves what she does and is great at it. Couldn't have picked a better spot! Thanks Mira Monte Inn staff!

  • Liked — The breakfast and the room
  • Disliked — The location of the room was next to the breakfast location...harder to sleep in.

We love the Mira Monte Inn!! This year's stay marks the third year in a row we've stayed there. We have such a great time we always book the next summer's stay before we leave. The rooms are comfortable and quiet, the staff is friendly, the breakfast is awesome (best blueberry muffins in Bar Harbor), and the location is unbeatable. What more do you want!!!
