We stayed here on a family vacation in 2 suites and one room. The suites made it handy for spending time together on the rainy days. It is close to town and the shore so we were able to walk everywhere we wanted to go in Bar Harbor. Greg was a great host and very helpful. We traveled before they...

Bar Harbor is definitely a great place to visit especially when you are in walking distance to the shops, restaurants and the...

Our second time staying at this Inn in the Fall. We have stayed in the back cottage, The Miller, and the main house, Grand Central. The hosts are outstanding, accommodating every need. We love the breakfast with so many choices including warm, crispy waffles made to order. Afternoon finds a cookie jar full of chocolate chip cookies. Later, happy hour...

We have stayed here many times previously and love coming back as often as possible. While the Inn itself is not open during the off season, there are two "suite buildings" on site that provide very cozy and comfortable accommodations of various sizes. We love the atmosphere on the property and the way the staff makes you feel so at...

We booked a four night birthday getaway the week before Christmas. Having experienced Mt. Desert for decades in both high and off season, we were eager to resume a tradition of visiting at this time of year, knowing full well that both accommodations and dining were limited. And our chances of walking the carriage roads, much less hiking were chancy....

Thank you for your wonderful review of the Mira Monte Inn. It certainly made us look outstanding for a winter getaway - even if there was no daily housekeeping and no breakfast. I appreciate the suggestion to put a boot scrapper mat outside the front door. I admire your honesty. I will make sure we comply. We all hope to...

We went in January, when many things in Bar Harbor are closed, but we had a great time. (In fact, being in the town when things were quiet was nice.) Our room was lovely, clean, and very pleasant. Mira Monte does not do breakfast or daily housekeeping during the off-season (a fact made very clear on their web site, so...

We loved everything about this Inn. From the afternoon wine and snacks, to the incredible buffet at breakfast, the antique decor throughout the Inn to the gas fireplace in the room (we were there at the end of October and needed the warming glow of that fire!). Everyone who worked there was so kind and helpful. Highly recommend!
