In 1981, Marian Burns converted a deteriorating mid Victorian summer "cottage" (Mira Monte) into the second Bed and Breakfast Inn in Bar Harbor, Maine - now Mira Monte Inn and Suites. The two-story inn is set in the heart of Bar Harbor, just minutes from Acadia National Park and within walking distance of the Atlantic Ocean.
