My now fiancé and I had booked a long weekend as a vacation, and our first night there we ate at Michelle's. I can't even begin to describe how fantastic the food was and the tiramisu was to die for! Christine and John were wonderful hosts and when our original booked room had an issue we were immediately placed in another room which was just as wonderful. Any questions we had, they answered and because we were there during the off season we definitely had questions. My fiancé and I were engaged while we were staying at the Inn and we celebrated with a bottle of prosecco on ice and a piece of tiramisu. We will definitely be back. Amanda and Rob

My husband and I stayed at the Ivy Manor Inn at the beginning of November. From the moment we met Christine and John we felt right at home. Our room, although a bit dated, was spotless and a great value for the money. Breakfasts were tasty and the location was excellent for our excursions to Acadia. November is a quiet time of year in Bar Harbor, but service was still excellent and we recommend the Ivy Manor Inn.

Had a wonderful stay here with my wife. Place was charming and within walking distance of everything in Bar Harbor. Managers were exceedingly nice, friendly, and helpful to make suggestions to us, as many touristy places were closing down for winter.

My wife and I were so please with the Ivy Manor Inn. Our stay was made so special and we felt right at home. Unfortunately the champagne that was placed in our room to celebrate my wife's 30th had to remain on ice as she was 8 weeks pregnant. However the pumpkin cheesecake that was delivered to our room, after my wife's long time friend phoned from Toronto and requested a cake with candles be sent for her, went down a hit. Best cheesecake ever. The only thing I would have changed is our length of stay. Next time we will be there for an extended vacation.

From the moment we arrived we knew we had chosen wisely. John greeted us with genuine warmth that made our "check-in" feel more like a "homecoming". The room was immaculate, well-appointed, and very comfortable. Breakfast, well I'm not sure you can find a better, self-served breakfast anywhere! When they say "gourmet" buffet, they are not kidding. Fresh juices, plural, homemade blueberry scones and breads, local jellies and jams, great coffee, ham and eggs, an outstanding soufflé, and more. Each morning was different and each was a taste treat! The Inn's other amenities are complemented by a well-stocked bar/lounge that was very comfortable and attended to by Joe, an attentive, friendly, and expert bartender. We felt right at home talking with him and the other patrons. Dinner, look no further--The first two nights we were there we tried other restaurants in the area based on recommendations, availability, and online reviews. It turned out we saved the BEST for last as we dined at the Ivy Manor on our third night. The shrimp appetizer was flavorful and had a hint of sweetness that complemented the freshness of the shrimp. Salads were fresh, crisp, garnished well, and well-proportioned. The entree....where do I start. I had the salmon. The sauce was out of this world. The vegetables perfectly cooked and mouth watering. Does it sound like I enjoyed it? If I knew of more positive adjectives then I'd use them too! What can I say about the Tiramisu? Melt in your mouth delicious that's all. I saved the best part for last. Christine is the co-owner and she was the perfect hostess asking after our every need, engaging us and the other guests from breakfast until after dinner time. We even got to meet her little boy Hamilton. He is definitely a "chip off the 'young' block". Christine and John are certainly the "right" people for running an Inn. We plan on making this our "go to" place for future visits to the Bar Harbor area.
