A Getaway for Two

by TripAdvisor Member AE_Lion

We stayed in the North Suites of the inn, which had a parlor, a bedroom, a kitchenette and a bath with shower and jacuzzi tub. Although the room was cozy and beautifully appointed, the highlights of the trip were the location and the staff. Each day started with breakfast in the main house, which had a different egg bake every day in addition to regular breakfast foods, such as granola, oatmeal, muffins, and fruit salad. After breakfast we enjoyed a five minute stroll down Mt. Desert St. to the Village Green where we could take the Island Explorer or simply explore Bar Harbor, all without the need for a car. In the afternoon we would return to the house for wine and cheese and make dinner plans. The staff had wonderful suggestions and would call in reservations for us while we relaxed. When we returned from dinner we always found that the Suite had been put back in order, with no other sign that anyone had come in. We also found that the kitchenette was well stocked with all the utensils and tools we needed to enjoy a night in, but it seemed too small to prepare a meal for more than two. Also, don't forget that the dishes are your job. All in all, the North Suites were the perfect spot for a romantic getaway, especially if you purchase the package deal, which was easily worth twice what we were charged!

Relaxing Mira Monte

by TripAdvisor Member dogski

We spent three nights at this lovely Inn. It's in a quiet location, (we stayed in the 2nd-floor unit in the rear of the property) and the 2 -bedroom unit was clean and comfortable. Located toward the west end of town, it is a 5-10 minute walk to "downtown" and only a block away from the grocery. The innkeeper and staff were codial and offered good advice on meals and activities.
We read the reviews raving about the great breakfasts and we weren't dissapointed. We would stay there again.

Wonderful Lodging and Host in Bar Harbor

by TripAdvisor Member ame2001

My wife and I stayed for 4 nights between July 17-21, 2007. However, our favorable impression of the Mira Monte began before we arrived. From the time we booked our room ("the Marlborough"), we were in contact with Marian, the owner, and she was very helpful in providing information about Bar Harbor. Upon our arrival, we were very pleased with the convenient location and with the property itself. Our room was comfy and clean, and the Inn is only a short (pleasant) walk to all restaurants, shops, and downtown businesses; and a short drive into Acadia. Marian and her staff were very attentive to our comfort and provided much welcomed information while we were there. The breakfasts were excellent (although I wish they started serving a bit earlier than 8 am), and the afternoon wine and cheese social was quite pleasant. When we return to Bar Harbor, we will definitely stay at the Mira Monte!

Loved Mira Monte

by TripAdvisor Member grumpynco

The staff was very friendly and informative about what to do around Bar Harbor. They even went out of their way for us on a few occasions (i.e making more breakfast if there was none left when we got up, helping us find a lost item). We will stay there again the next time we plan to go to Maine.

Loved it!!!!

by TripAdvisor Member golfskiConnecticut

Wonderful bed and breakfast. Within walking distance to downtown. Great choices for breakfast....fruit, homemade muffins, egg bake, homemade granola, fresh waffles...all delicious. We stayed in the Newport room, which overlooks the back gardens. Roomy with a gas fireplace. Will definitely look to stay there again.

Great place

by TripAdvisor Member jimbo1249

This was our first stay at a bed & breakfast and it was a nice experience. We stayed in the St. Savueur room and found it to very comfortable and quaint. The breakfasts were well prepared and ample. We thought Katherine, Cathy, and Marian were very friendly and hospitable. Good location and beautiful grounds. We would stay there again. Jim and Diane Gariepy

Acadia area

by TripAdvisor Member skatefirst

This BB was worth staying at for the history lesson and it's place in the history of Bar Harbor. Miriam the owner is a native of Bar Harbor and is a WEALTH of information. She brings top value to this historic home. Mira Monte is the second oldest BB in town so it is real.
We will be back probably every year for the biking in Acadia and will stay here.

Exceeded my expectations which were quite high already

by TripAdvisor Member BostonLinda

I just needed to get away and started looking on the internet for B&B's near Acadia National Park. Mira Monte looked lovely, but you never know. from internet pictures. Well I walked into a whole other world of class and civilization. I have already told all my friends.

Loved the Mira Monte. . .

by TripAdvisor Member grandmaNewYork

Lovely rooms, wonderful breakfasts, accomodating and friendly staff. . . We enjoyed ourselves so much we extended our stay by two days.

Oli's Trolley or Acadia Tours

by Joanandjoe

We'll be in Bar Harbor for a day (9/22) as part of a cruise. Rather than taking the ship's excursions, we are considering taking either Oli's Trolley or the Acadia Tours bus. Has anyone tried either one? Which would you recommend? Thanks.

RE: Oli's Trolley or Acadia Tours

by fatomey

I will be arraving on Oct,1st and have the same question. Will someone kindly respond!!

Oli's Trolley or Acadia Tours

by Joanandjoe

Based on research on CruiseCritic and in an Acadia National Park guidebook, both companies are pretty good. We'll be taking Oli's Trolley because of their reservations policy. For Acadia tours we would have had to pay in advance; while for Oli's Trolley we don't have to do so. Since we'll be tendering, rather than docking, at Bar Harbor, we'd hate to have to pay, and then find out that the seas are too rough for us to make it to shore from our ship.

If you send us a reminder email (to Joanandjoe@vtmail.com) or posting, we'll try to remember to update you after we get home.

RE: Oli's Trolley or Acadia Tours

by newenglander

Hi, I've taken Acadia Tours a couple of times over the years and really like the tour, humour and information. The guides were well informed, the bus comfortable and the stops were great. They went up Cadillac mtn and we all got out, Sieur de Monts Springs, Thunder hole, etc. Also, it was warm on the bus. Either way, have fun, it is a lovely place. I know they are local people and perhaps if you called them about a possible refund regarding your situation they might be fine about it, it's worth a shot

Oli's Trolley or Acadia Tours

by Joanandjoe

We promised to give a review of Oli's Trolley; bus, as it turned out, we didn't take it. Bar Harbor was our first U.S. port arriving from Canada, an we didn't think we could make the 10 a.m. tour. On the other end, 2 p.m. would have been pushing our luck with the tenders. We ended up with a ship's walking tour, which certainly was a different way to see the park.

Typos: that's "but as it turned out", not "bus". Sure wish there were a way of correcting typos.
