My wife and I tried a bed and breakfast for the first time to celebrate our anniversary. We found the Ivy Manor Inn after looking at dozens of other options. We were completely satisfied with what we found! We choose the "Royalty" room which afforded us a king size suite with private bath, fireplace and balcony. The room was clean... More

We had an amazing stay at the Ivy Manor Inn last weekend. John and Christine made us feel at home right away, and we loved every minute of our stay. This Inn is very clean and the atmosphere is relaxing and inviting. We had a fabulous meal in their restaurant Michelle's, and we were very impressed with the menu. We... More

The Ivy Manor Inn is lovely, without a doubt. We had trouble pulling into the parking lot because the driveway was blocked by people taking pictures of the building. Our room was spacious, the bed was very comfortable, the location and parking were ideal and the innkeepers were welcoming and accommodating. Given all that, I've had to knock off a... More

We did not stay at the Ivy Manor, but wish we had. The beauty of the home caught our eye as we were strolling around looking for something to eat. We stopped in for appetizers only, because our lunch had been so late that day. John was so very gracious and welcoming. We sat in the bar and got visiting... More

John & Christine have a great place right in the heart of downtown Bar Harbor. Although we did not stay at the Inn (wish we would have); we had dinner at the restaurant our last night in town. It was SOOOOOOOO good! I mean everything we ordered from the mussels to the pork chop (w/ the most delicious pineapple chutney... More

We chose Room 2 Royalty w/ king (comfy) bed, gas fireplace & deck...where we had cocktail hour w/ new friends. Wonderful organic breakfast prepared every morning by Christine. Right on Main... More

Great location and John and Christine were marvelous hosts. That being said, our room was smaller than expected, only one chair, one night stand, and a tub that was so high sided that it was difficult and dangerous to get in and out. The door into the room scraped the floor probably because the floor was a bit warped. The... More

Lovely place in the heart of Bar Harbor! No need for a car once you get there. We were there for 10 days and stayed in two different rooms. The first was a little cramped but the second one was large and very charming. Bed was very comfortable. Could use more light in both rooms. While the inn is quite... More

John & Christine Poole run a marvelous operation here! They're hands-on without being overbearing, and their staff is just as nice and helpful. The rooms are quaint, clean, and well maintained. The meals in their restaurant were superb, as were the included breakfasts. And did I mention the all-time best Monte Cristo sandwich, bar none, that we had one day... More

We stayed at the Ivy Manor Inn for a week, returning home yesterday, so we were there during high tourist season. It was our first time at the inn, but far from our first time in Bar Harbor. The inn is in a terrific location, right in downtown Bar Harbor, so it's possible to wander easily from shop to shop... More
