The Ivy Manor Inn is the best B&B we have ever visited and we have stayed in many in the U.S. and abroad. The location for Bar Harbor is perfect - right on Main Street within walking distance of everything in town. There is a large private parking lot just for guests and patrons of the onsite restaurant, Michelle's Fine... More

You couldn't be closer to downtown Bar Harbor than at the Ivy Manor. The B&B is very charming and with an on site restaurant, an excellent choice. The owners could not be more friendly or accommodating. The food at the restaurant was excellent. Our suite was spacious, although a couple more lamps would have been nice. Be sure to bring... More

Superb location, fantastic room, even better Innkeepers. Complimentary breakfast was ok, but you're here for the rooms and location. We had the Royalty Room, which was a king with a balcony (shared) and a private bathroom. The room was Victorian in decor, but surprisingly modern feeling and very bright. The room had a great breezeway between the bathroom and room... More

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
