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

John and Christine along with their team (Amy, Molly and others) do a great job of making their guests feel welcome. They interact freely and appropriately (no creepy over-bearing supervision here) with guests and work to accommodate each request. Breakfasts are gourmet and hearty. The Inn is located in the heart of downtown Bar Harbor so walking distance from all... More

This is the best B&B my wife and I have ever stated it. The location is adjacent to the town square and the breakfast is awesome. The owners go out of their way to make you feel welcome and happily accommodate random requests. My wife and I roasted s'mores around the firepit in front if the inn at night. You... More

The innkeepers, John and Christine are extremely accommodating... anything you need or want, just ask and if it is possible they will find a way! We were a group of four with varying dietary needs.

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
