Loved the old fashioned decor of the Inn. Floral wall paper, ruffled shower curtain, large ornate head board on the king size bed. The staff we spoke with was helpful and charming. The family atmosphere added to the experience. Young families with children were a welcome change from mainly retired tourists. Our room was huge with a fire place, jacuzzi...

The room was enormous, breakfasts wonderful and within easy walking distance of the shops & restaurants in Bar Harbor. It was just down the road from Acadia National Park. However, they allow families with young children, which was surprising, as I do not expect to see that at B&Bs and found it to be a major negative about the Inn,...

Thank you for taking the time to give us a wonderful and honest review. We always welcome constructive criticism. There are several B&B's on Mt. Desert Island that do not allow children. The deceased owner always welcomed families, including babies to young adults. It is a policy that we will probably not change. All and all we do not have...

Very comfortable accommodations. Excellent breakfast each morning. Very friendly staff. Green, lush grounds. Sufficient free parking. Reliable internet service. Overall, we had a wonderful stay and would go back.

Loved the detail in Mira Monte Inn, charming Victorian Home, each room had Impressive lamp bases matching the floral print wall paper. Blue in the Belmont... Beige and Rose in the Newport.

This is a beautiful old home with a rich history as a bed and breakfast and located just blocks from the best parts of town. The Inn keepers were very pleasant and worked to get to know their patrons. Wish I could stop there but this was not a very comfortable stay. It's an old house that has fallen behind...

We loved our stay at Mira Monte. The room was very comfortable, the breakfasts delicious, and most of all, the casual and friendly atmosphere that made us feel "at home" and "on vacation" at the same time. The location is perfect for exploring Acadia National Park and it was great to be able to walk into town and enjoy all...

Mira Monte continues to be our favorite place to stay when we visit Bar Harbor. Although the owner passed away last fall, our stay at the inn this year was just as enjoyable as in prior years. Of course we missed Marian and her talks at breakfast, which continues to be the best in Bar Harbor. Convenient to the center...

This is an excellent place to stay if you're visiting Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park. Our room (Newport) was really comfortable, with a private porch. We loved the blueberry muffins for breakfast--Marian's recipe, we hear--and all the other tasty dishes. The Inn is located very near the park and we hiked in the park both days we stayed, making...

Thank you. You certainly had some wonderful things to say about the Mira Monte Inn. And it sounds like you filled your days in Acadia National Park doing the things we love to do. You just can't get enough. We hope you will come back to stay with us again. Katherine

We were very excited and intrigued to spend our 9th anniversary in Bar Harbor at this B&B. The website and reviews led us to believe that this was a quaint, nostalgic, romantic Victorian Inn. This was far from the case. The inn itself is in need of much maintenance. It needs a good all over painting. The porch needed to...

My husband and I and another couple spent three nights at Mira Monte. The Inn is lovely, with many rooms, porches, and outdoor spaces for sitting around, chatting, and relaxing.

Thank you for writing such wonderful things about the Mira Monte Inn. Yes, this is an old building and I will remind all our guests that they are stepping into the 1800's when they walk through our doors. Even so, lot's of repairs are on the horizon, but they will certainly not take away our relaxing atmosphere. Thanks again and...
