Ranked #11 of 30 Bar Harbor B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed July 5, 2012

My husband and I stayed in the St. Saveur room for 3 nights in June and really enjoyed it. The Inn is Victorian but with all of the modern things we have come to expect...flat screen TV, Wifi and modern bathroom and a very comfortable bed. Breakfast was buffet style with many choices. The oatmeal with cranberries was outstanding...add a little maple syrup. Marian and her staff are very helpful and welcoming. We would most absolutely stay there again. The location is great... just a short walk to the heart of Bar Harbor and a short drive to Acadia National Park. The afternoon wine and cheese was an added bonus.

We celebrated our anniversary by returning to Bar Harbor for the 4th time. This is the first time we've stayed at the Mira Monte and were not disappointed by the room or the relaxed yet lovely atmosphere. We also took advantage of their 3-day InnSpring package which included both a dinner for two at a local restaurant (Italian) and a nature cruise out of Northeast Harbor - both of which were just fine. The Inn is within easy walking distance of the town and the harbor. Our room (one of the less expensive rooms) was spacious and well equipped. The three open-able windows face the heavily traveled Mount Desert Street, but we were able to keep the windows open because the traffic dropped off at a very reasonable hour. Air conditioning is always available if the noise level was too high. The inn also offers a very robust wifi network which was a huge plus. The only drawback was that the "buffet" breakfast was a bit skimpy in its offerings and its most tasty items were quickly depleted and not quickly refreshed.

Room Tip: If you want to be guaranteed a room that is quiet, ask for one that does not face Mt. Desert Street...

Not a detail is missed at this inn! The rooms are comfortable, the cleaning service is generous, the breakfasts smell and taste delicious and the gardens are a constant delight.

Room Tip: oops I marked room service but this inn does not have that.

Our stay at Mira Monte was wonderful . We stayed in the Agamont roomfor four nights, which was lovely and very clean. The breakfast was great including blueberry muffins, quiches, other pastries, oatmeal, steamed eggs, and many goodies. All items are freshly prepared each morning. The staff are all very friendly and informative. The Inn is a short walk to all the restaurants, shops, and waterfront. We will hopefully be back in the fall.

We very much enjoyed our stay at Mira Monte. The location was perfect, an easy walk to shopping and restaurants. The innkeeper and staff were friendly and helpful. Because of late registration, no one room was available for the 3 nights we needed, so we moved rooms each night we were there. This was a bit inconvenient, but we got to experience three instead of one room. Having private balcony was especially nice. also the afternoon wine and cheese was a good way to sit and meet other visitors. The breakfast served is not gormet - if that is what you are looking for, but there was always plenty and it was good and well served. Overall I would highly recommend the Mira Monte, and would not hesitate to stay there again

Room Tip: Private Balcony very nice. Big jacuzzi tub not that big a deal.

We enjoyed our stay with Marian, a gracious host. We were made to feel very welcome and "at home"by her wonderful, accommodating staff as well. A wonderful, extensive buffet awaited us each morning with a lovely variety to please the palate. Delicious organic coffee was hot and plentiful.Our cozy room had Victorian appointments as did much of the common area, a step back in time but with a warm homey feel. We had a choice of rooms for breakfast and enjoyed either the main dining room or enclosed porch with it's more intimate seating. It was a lovely surprise planned by my husband and I would be quite pleased if he surprised me again. With so much to do in the area we kept ourselves quite busy, taking suggestions from Marian, a Bar Harbor native. The hustle and bustle is only a short distance from the inn so take a walk, take a hike, ride a bike, or check out the lovely gardens right at the Mira Monte. Mo and Mike

Room Tip: There are a number of rooming possibilities, first or second floor and guest houses.

A very enjoyable stay, 5 nights. The room was beautiful, nicely decorated, TV, DVD player, WIFI, A/C. The breakfast was different every day, a very nice selection of fruit, fresh made waffles, various tasty egg dishes, cakes and sweet breads. The location is excellent, a short walk to the center of town and surrounding areas of interest. I forgot to mention warm cookies in the afternoon and wine and cheese and snacks at 5pm. This place is a GEM, a nice garden to relax in with new friends you make during the stay.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Rocklyn room and viewed the room next store the Miller room. Both rooms are brand n...
