Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 15 November 2017

Our stay was during the winter season so the main inn was not open. We stayed in a building behind the inn. It was cozy and well appointed. The bed was the highlight!! It was so very comfortable! Loved the decor as well. Would be where we would stay if ever in Bar Harbor agian.

Thank you for your kind review. We are happy that you were comfy in your room and we like to know that our guests are well taken care of. From Late October to Mid-May we rent 2 suites and 2 rooms as guest units. The cost, which is discounted, does not include breakfast or daily housekeeping. It's also a great time to come to Bar Harbor. There is still so much to do such as hiking and biking or maybe just a scenic ride around Mt. Desert Island.

We do hope to see you again

We booked the North Suite which is located in a separate building at the back of the main inn. It overlooks the pretty courtyard and the yard of another B&B. It is like a little apartment with a hob, fridge, microwave etc. It also has an enclosed wood burning fire in the bedroom and a jacuzzi bath. It was very clean and had that lovely cosy B&B feel. It is only a ten minute stroll away from the village centre.
Okay, so that's the nuts and bolts. But the real difference between Mira Monte and other B&Bs is its atmosphere. It is cared for with love by the staff which includes family of the original owner. They are friendly and go above and beyond to make your stay special. The breakfast is legendary and now we know why! Everything is fresh and handmade and there are plenty of choices! (No wonderbread and store-bought muffins here!)
Mira Monte has a lot of history and its decor reflects that. Minimalist purists will not be at home here. Everything has a bit of a pattern or a detail. But that is part of its charm. We wanted to stay somewhere that felt like Bar Harbor and not just a chain hotel that looks and feels the same in any city you visit. We will definitely be back (as a lot of Mira Monte's guests often do!)

Room Tip: Suites are good for longer stays where you might need kitchen facilities and a bit more room.

Thank you for all your kind words. It's just what we want our guests to feel - just like Bar Harbor and its history to go with it. It does reflect in the decor of the Inn.

Please come back and enjoy the North Suite again or maybe pick another suite/room. Our great breakfast will be waiting for you.

Thank you again!

We had a great trip and so much of it was the Mira Monte Inn. It was beautiful and had an amazing atmosphere. The staff were unbelievable. If I get the chance to visit Bar Harbor again I will definitely stay at the Mira Monte Inn again!

Great stay. Breakfast each morning was very enjoyable. Lots of good casual conversation at breakfast as well as wine and cheese time in the late afternoon.
Check-in and check-out out was easy.
Also, we got good advice on;Direction's, dining choices, and Acadia Park hi-lights.

This was our 5th time staying at the Mira Monte Inn. Obviously we love this place. We have stayed in different rooms. Our favorite is the Mt Desert Suite with covered patio, one of the outer buildings. Rooms are like hotel rooms but with antique furniture. Clean with character. Every room is different. Everyone is very nice and informative! The breakfast is another reason we keep coming back. A variety to please everyone. The grounds are wonderful, wide open space between the buildings. Love being able to leave are car there and walk to downtown Bar Harbor. Will be back again next year.

We had a wonderful stay at Mira Monte Inn. The staff is friendly and accommodating. We went out early one morning for the sunrise and one of the staff was so kind to brew the coffee so we could have a cup before we left. The morning breakfast is really good with fresh baked goods, quiche, cereal and yogurt. Our room was comfortable and clean. We will stay again.

We had a 2 day stay at the Mira Monte Inn and had a lovely time. We stayed in the Miller room which is in the new annex. It was lovely and quiet. Our room had a small balcony overlooking the grounds. The main house is well appointed and the gathering rooms were quite comfortable. In the late afternoon, guests gathered for wine, cheese and crackers, home made breads, and conversation....Lovely. Breakfast was served in the dining room with a delicious variety of homemade hot and cold items (waffles daily or blueberry pancakes on Tuesday mornings). Our inn hostess, Christine, made us feel welcome and answered all our questions. When asked, she provided useful information about the local restaurants, sites, and points of interest. The Mira Monte is conveniently located just a few blocks walk into town. What could be nicer? I highly recommend a stay at this lovely inn. What a pleasant way of experiencing all that the Bar Harbor area has to offer.

Thank you for your kind words!

The Ashe Cottage was built in 2012, unlike our other 2 buildings that were built in the mid 1800's. We still gave the Ashe Cottage a feel of the Victorian days, but with all the amenities to make it quiet and comfortable.

We serve breakfast every morning from 8 to 10 PM with all our homemade goodies. We also serve a "Wine & Cheese" social everyday from 4:30 to 6:30 daily so our guests can mingle and talk about their adventures of the day with the other guests and the staff all while enjoying some refreshments.

Thank you for appreciating all that we have to offer here at the MMI.
