“Great place to stay in Bar Harbor”
Reviewed 4 March 2012

We stayed at this bed and breakfast last summer and loved it. It was very conveniently located in walking distance to the shops and restaurants in Bar Harbor. We loved the idea of a breakfast buffet. The staff was very helpful and had great ideas on what to do with our time there.

We liked the old charm of the house, however, the decor was a little like my grandmother's. Other than that, it was a great stay.

Because Mira Monte is one of the oldest homes in Bar Harbor, and has been rented to the public since since the 1870's, - first as a summer "cottage" where the wealthy visitors came with their servants and spent the whole summer, and then since 1981 when I opened it as a Victorian B&B Inn, rented by the room to visitors who appreciate the ambience of the best of Victorian, It is entirely appropriate that the decor IS Victorian. I make no excuses for it; I advertise it as Victorian, and picture it in the brochure and on the web site. Anyone who does not like Victorian decor should not stay here. I have adopted all modern conveniences that the Victorians would have had if they had been available: gas fireplaces, private baths, whirlpool tubs, phone, flat screen TV's,WiFi, hair dryers, radios, DVD players, makeup mirrors, individual heat and air conditioning in each room and a refrigerator for guest use in the dining room. So I have chosen a mix of the best of two worlds. Many people, including me, have warm memories of grandmothers home, and Mira Monte helps them revive those memories. I wish that it had been so - for you.

Our first experience, just taking a chance. Wonderful place on every dimension....and the owner makes you feel like you are part of a big family. We had to hug when we left! And...we got a chance to meet other folks and had very interesting conversations, including sharing diverse political views! Totally recommend...and would love to return if we are ever again on the East Coast. Acadia National Park is also quite beautiful...it condenses into a small space a complex of natural features...mountains, ocean, islands, etc.

We stayed 2 nights over the October 21 st weekend. The room was spacious for the 3 adults and very clean. The location was great. Short car trip to Acadia and a very short walk to all restaurants and shops in downtown Bar Harbor. The breakfast was excellent. The owner was there every morning for breakfast and in the evening for the wine and cheese. We will definitely be back. We highly recommend Mira Monte.

The rooms are beautiful, the food exceptionally delicious and the owner and all of her staff truly make you feel special. We enjoyed our stay at Mira Monte very much. Actually, we loved everything about Bar Harbor Maine!

Room Tip: We stayed in the Grand Central room, but all the rooms looked wonderful.

We are so fortunate to have found the Mira Monte Inn. The hospitality and atmosphere were so inviting and relaxing allowing us to completely unwind during our stay. It is within walking distance to downtown and the shops. The room was very comfortable and it was so quite. The breakfast provided was outstanding and the owner and staff were wonderful and very helpful with the history of the area and places of interest. We were so impressed we will be back next year!
