Mira Monte Inn
Ranked #12 of 30 Bar Harbor B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed July 26, 2012

My wife and I along with our two young adult daughters recently enjoyed a stay at the Mira Monte Inn. It's not always easy to find a single "room" that will accommodate four grown people, but the Wingwood Suite at Mira Monte fit our needs perfectly. It had two separate bedrooms with a small kitchen, and apparently just opened several weeks ago in a building behind the main inn. The grounds of the inn are very pretty, with flowers in bloom everywhere and large shade trees. There's no view of the harbor, but it's only a short walk to the village green and the all the shops and restaurants of Bar Harbor. The immediate neighborhood is amazingly quiet, and it's no problem leaving the windows open at night. The beds were comfortable, not too soft. Marian, the owner, is a native of Bar Harbor who enjoys giving advice about things to do, and all the staff was helpful.

Great location and very pretty house and garden; easy walk into main part of town. Owner is extremely helpful with lots of information about making the best use of your time in the area. Breakfast is great, self-serve buffet, very easy-going. We liked that you can stay in the breakfast room to chat with other guests if you feel social or take your food off to a side room or porch if you feel more like a quiet beginning to the day. We stayed in the new apartment in the building back of the main house, which was very comfortable and private, but if you are looking for the charm of an old inn you should try for a room in the main house. We would definitely stay here again if we were visiting Bar Harbor.

Room Tip: Newer apartments in additional building are comfortable and possibly more private than rooms in the...

I stayed here in July 2012 as part of the package deal with Maine Coast Bicycle Tours and was very impressed with this B&B. The room was beautiful and spacious. The service was excellent. The breakfast was delicious. I ate far too much every morning. The staff was helpful and friendly, especially Marian, the owner. She has many recommendations for restaurants and sight seeing, and will sit and talk with guests sometimes for the 5 o'clock wine and cheese hour. I highly recommend the Mira Monte Inn for a stay in Bar Harbor.

Last week I stayed with my wife for three nights in this great B&B. It is really special and was one of our top highlights during a 2 weeks travel. The rooms are cosy, the breakfast served with love and the atmosphere with Miram around you just great. Don't miss the 5pm wine and talk with other guests and Miram.
We would go again, no doubt.

Recently stayed in at the Inn with my husband and daughter. Overall, we very much enjoyed our stay. The location was phenomenal, just a short walk to the main street. Their gardens were quite beautiful and as a Floridian, I really enjoyed seeing a great variety of plants we just can't grow down here.
I have an egg allergy and the staff approached me to ask if there was anything special I would like for breakfast- most thoughtful, but not needed since there were so many things to chose from! Breakfast options were ample and delicious- the oatmeal was especially great! I liked that we were able to serve ourselves breakfast and had several options regarding where to eat, rather than eating in shifts at one table.
We stayed in the Rodick room. It was charming and clean, but unfortunately the shower was extremely small and difficult to maneuver. We also had two very large flies in out room upon arrival. We found that we had to stuff a towel in the window above the airconditioning in order to keep more from coming in.

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...
