My aunt and uncle eat wheat but only eincorn (ancient form of wheat that's not hybridized) and I am allergic to nitrites/nitrates and can only... More

My friend and I traveled to Bar Harbor in May 2014 and stayed at the Ivy Manor. The Ivy Manor is in a great location with walking distance to all major areas. The room we had, and the rest of our accommodations, were great; the food was wonderful! If you want to feel like you have been catered to, and... More

July 1 visit. While we can not speak to the Inn, the café associated with the Inn is very enjoyable. Seating was outdoor, just off the Main St sidewalk. Lobster rolls yummy. Adult beverages equally so.

This is an awesome place to stay in Bar Harbor, right in the center of town. Super cozy, cute, and convenient. It's recently changed owners, and the current proprietors are lovely and very hospitable. We overly enjoyed our stay. Highly recommend!

I can't say enough good things about this beautiful place right on Main St. - yet quiet and comfortable. Great, comfy bed, nice outdoor decks/sitting areas, the whole place is lovely. The owners are extremely friendly and helpful. The freshly made breakfast each morning was delicious. Perfect location to walk to shops etc.

Returning from a road trip to Canada we decided to spend a night in Bar Harbor Maine. We happened on the Ivy Manor B&B on Main Street which has to be the best we have ever stayed in. The owners go out of their way to make you feel at home. The breakfasts were incredible. We stayed an extra night... More

How lucky we were to find this charming inn! It is easy walking distance to the surrounding downtown shops. Outside has an open and pretty garden area for cocktails and snacks with an inside bar and Michelle's Fine Dining restaurant. Owners John and Christine Poole are friendly and accommodating, and Christine makes a delicious breakfast every morning. The bed was... More

We chose to stay at Ivy Manor because of the reviews on Tripadvisor. There are somethings that are very good about this B&B and some things were a disappointment. The location is perfect and is located right on Main St and walking distance to restaurants and shops. The owners, John and Christine are very friendly. We stayed two nights in... More

It's difficult to imagine a better setting or amenities and the hosts, John and Christine, are simply outstanding in providing unbelievable breakfasts, an unmatched tour of their home and just every kind of tip you could want in maximizing your visit to Bar Harbor. Our room upstairs was beautiful and spacious and was perfect for relaxing in the evening. The... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Our Tudor style inn is located on Main Street in the lovely town of Bar Harbor, ME. Shopping is right outside our front door and the entrance to Acadia National Park is only two miles away. Whether you visit in the spring, summer or fall the flowers will be in bloom. All eight (8) rooms are uniquely designed with imported tiles from London and the classical decor gives each room an elegant warm feeling. Quaint outside balconies, fireplaces and all the amenities you expect adorn our rooms. We provide our guests with a gourmet breakfast every morning in one of three dining rooms, or choose to dine outside on our patio. Michelle's restaurant is a casual fine dining experience and is open daily to the public for dinner seven days a week. We look forward to serving you at the Ivy Manor Inn. ... more   less
