Spent three nights in October while exploring Acadia NP and Bar Harbor. Able to accommodate us even though we had to change rooms because of booking conflicts which wasn't a problem for us. Preferred the Louisburg over the Belmont room - brighter and had a small balcony. Very friendly and accommodating staff. Wonderful breakfasts. The afternoon wine and cheese was...

A nice bed and breakfast in a great location. We stayed in the back cottage- a nice room , but the walls were paper thin and we could hear everything next door. They seem to cram as many rooms as possible in this nice property. It's okay, but I've stayed at nicer bed and breakfasts. Food was good, they offer...

Stayed two nights a week ago and impressed with the attention the staff gave and their willingness to do all they could to make our visit comfortable and fun.

The Mira Monte Inn was our introduction to Bed and Breakfast Inns and it made us believers in this type of accommodation. Greg was most helpful from making the reservation to checking out. The social hour and breakfast were delightful. Our room and bath were comfortable (except for the squeaky mattress/box spring).The location cannot be beat. We would return.

We spent 2 nights at Mira Monte Inn last week and had a wonderful time - great host, great breakfast- enjoyed the afternoon wine and cheese and a beautiful room room to relax in both nights - the inn was an easy walk to downtown and fine dining spots. Strongly recommend Mira Monte to everyone.

We absolutely love Bar Harbor and Acadia. When we go there we stay at Mira Monte. Reasonably priced, it's closeness to downtown, it's scrumptious breakfasts and attentive staff are all reasons that we have returned for over 12 years. We were saddened with Marian's passing, but Katherine and Greg are doing a great job in running the inn.

Spent a long weekend and loved it. We had the "south suite" and loved the privacy. Immaculately clean and cozy. Perfect location being just away from center of town avoiding the crowd but a very short walk to the action. Blocks away from visitors center to buy Acadia Park pass and a chip shot from the parks entrance. Greg was...

Easy to find and get to location within Bar Harbor; rooms are distributed among 3 buildings on the property so you're not piled on top of each other; very convenient walk to restaurants and town, 5 to 10 min easy drive to Acadia; staff was helpful and informed regarding restaurants, Acadia, and local events.
