“Just Wonderful!”
Reviewed September 26, 2013 via mobile

After a 4000 mile coast to coast road trip, we booked to stay here for 6 nights for rest and relaxation and that is just what we got from this fabulous Inn.
Our bedroom Des Isle, was just a little piece of heaven, beautiful decorated and spotlessly clean plus the bed & pillows were very comfy, and we also had a lovely little balcony at the back overlooking the gardens.
The breakfasts are a treat, everything homemade and just an amazing selection, we can honestly say we have never seen such attention to detail like this on any of our travels, nothing is too much trouble, they really do treat their guests like King & Queens.
If they run out of anything or if you have any special requests, all you have to do is ask, and they really do take great pleasure in making sure everything is just perfect for you.
They have a fridge in the dining room for guest items which is good, plus another fridge stocked with cold bottled water for a small donation of 25 cents, plus cookies for guests to take, plus every evening 5-7pm they have a cheese & wine evening which is a great way of meeting your fellow guests, we met some lovely people who we will never forget.
The staff are truly the best, very knowledgable, always attentive, polite and very professional, but the jewel in the crown is Marian, there is nothing about Bar Harbor and the surrounding areas she does not know, she really is an amazing lady.
The Wifi signal was the best we had on all of our 4 weeks travel.
This place really is a must for anyone thinking of staying in Bar Harbor, trust me you will not be disappointed, and one thing for sure, we will return from England one day.

We spent 8 nights at the inn and couldn't have asked for a better experience. We enjoyed real Maine hospitality--Marian and her staff are very friendly, welcoming and knowledgeable. Their suggestions for dinner and even hikes in Acadia were spot-on and excellent. Wine and cheese and cookies in the afternoon were great, but the real highlight was breakfast. There was a great assortment of homemade treats, including pancake Tuesday and some fabulous egg bakes daily. The buffet format was way better than some other places we've stayed where you don't get a choice of food or the amount. The room (we stayed in Wingwood) was comfortable and well-appointed. The inn itself is just a few blocks from downtown, very convenient for dinner but in a quiet location. Definitely our choice for the next trip to Bar Harbor.

Room Tip: All of the rooms have some outdoor space, either a balcony or a patio.

We had the 2 upstairs rooms in the new Ashe Cottage. Rooms were lovely and well appointed. However, the warmth of the owner and her team are the Crown Jewels. They made everyone feel special. They love the area and have lots of suggestions. Breakfast wonderful. Afternoon wine & cheese party great way to meet other guests.

Enjoyed our time there but nothing outstanding. Some of the staff treated it as a job while others went out of their way. Decor is what I had expected. Breakfast was an issue as if you were not there early and something was finished, it was not replaced. Marian was enjoyable to talk with. Overall an average stay.

Staying at the Mira Monte has always been fabulous. We've been guests there each September for over five years. Marian, the owner, is so gracious and tends to our every need including where to hike fun things to do and the best restaurants. The breskfasts are a treat...yummy. Everything from the decore to the modern touche of WFI reflect Marian's personality and care for her guests. Marian makes the visit perfect. B&H

We've visited Bar Harbor 20 times and stayed at many places. My wife and I consider this the best. The staff cater to all your needs and you will leave happy and having met many new friends from across the country. This B&B has the most phenomenal breakfasts and you should arrive no later than than 5 to enjoy more comradery in the living room with Marion and the other guests as you share your experiences. The rooms are authentic Victorian but upgraded with jetted tub, AC and digital tv. Cadillac Mt. Park entrance is just up the street. Walking distance to all of Bar Harbor.

Room Tip: Ask for any of your needs. The staff is focused on making you happy.

Mira Monte Bed and Breakfast has everything you would want in a place to stay! We stayed in the beautiful West End room. Fantastic homemade breakfast, nice porch, comfy beds, and very clean! They have a gorgeous garden that we enjoyed walking through. Also, they are walking distance to all the attractions of Bar Harbor. Katherine and the staff were very friendly and accommodating. They treated my 10 year old as a valued guest. Mira Monte contributed to a wonderful vacation that we wished could have lasted longer.
