Ivy Manor Inn

2.8 on August 30, 2014

A little too rustic for me. Located on main street of town, with lots of street noise

Felt Like Home

4.4 on August 29, 2014

I had done several nights of research online, checking out all the bed and breakfasts in Bar Harbor. Something about Ivy Manor caught my eye. I booked a two night stay in August 2014. When we arrived I was pleasantly surprised that it had ample parking, the building had so much character, and was so centrally located. You couldn't ask for anything better. The experience at Ivy Manor was nothing short of awesome. Wonderful owners, staff, breakfast, dinner, cozy rooms, close to Acadia NP...the list could go on forever! If I were to leave a tip, it would be to BOOK EARLY! Room selection can be limited or non existent if you wait too late. Happy travels!

Bar Harbor perfection!

Wonderful stay at this perfect B&B. Right in downtown Bar Harbor, 2 block walk to the harbor, great people, good food, excellent accommodations. Couldn't ask for more. Had a fantastic time.

An ok place to stay but will not go back

2.8 on August 28, 2014

The rooms were very large but so very dark. In fact the whole B & B needed more lights. The food was very good what there was of it. Not much to choose from for breakfast and very small proportions. Great location right in the heart of town.

Very good location, extremely good service!

A few step from all the action yet very quiet. A very good value!

A wonderful place to stay!

We spent a week at the Ivy Manor Inn (August 11 to August 18) and enjoyed ourselves there completely. The hosts are welcoming and friendly and helpful. The bed was comfortable, and the room was very clean and attractive. When we had to leave for home fairly early in the morning, Christine, co-host with John, volunteered to make sure we had coffee, freshly baked scones, and watermelon slices. We were touched by her thoughtfulness. The off-street parking was an additional plus to an already great experience.

While everything was nice during our stay, there were few things needing mention: 1) Our room was at the front of the house, and though the Inn provided a "noise machine" (which we use nightly anyway), the noise from the street, both later at night and definitely early each morning (around 5:30-6am) was disruptive. I would suggest you ask for a room facing the rear of the home. Other things that come under the heading of "surprising": no tissues in the room, only one bar of soap, no water glasses, and the morning coffee was out in the front hallway. So if you wanted a second cup, you had to get up and walk to the front hall. Not terrible, but just surprising....what would a second carafe in the dining room cost? It is, after all, about comfort and ease! The location of the inn was wonderful if you want to be in the middle of the town action (and right on the FREE bus line!), the food was wonderful, and the service was exemplary. All in all I felt a bit pricey.

The owners were very nice. Rooms were good but need some work such as the windows and lighting. Breakfast was very good and nicely presented but there was not much of it. The location for our needs was super-we could walk to so much. We parked our car and did not move it until we left Bar Harbor. We would go back.

I love b and b's that really want to make you feel special. Nice soaps and special lotions, shampoo,etc, glasses in the rooms, new tv screens that are not desktop size, kleenex, All those things do make one feel special ---maybe next time These are new owners who are working hard to make this special. Keep at it. Michael's restaurant was fabulous. Great food, loved the outside fireplace and heaters. Breakfast was also very nice and owners are helpful to assist when they can.
