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.

John and Christine are top-notch innkeepers, and the kitchen is outstanding (I had the very best Monte Cristo sandwich ever for lunch). Did I say the very best ever, in my (kinda long) life? And breakfast and dinner were also only wonderful. :-) Only negative was the A/C, which was truly struggling. Otherwise, what a great stay! Thanks, John and Christine (and our fab waitress, Amy).

Our stay at the Ivy Manor Inn is the kind of memorable experience you want on vacation. Comfortable and lovely best describes our stay from the innkeepers and staff to the room, garden, and restaurant. Attention to detail without fussiness. We enjoyed a freshly prepared breakfast every morning. We slept in one day because it was raining and breakfast was delivered to the room. That set the tone for the day; we stayed in and talked, read, sipped coffee, then wine. It was the kind of day that you hope to have at a B & B. How surprising that a rainy day improved the vacation! The ambiance of the inn is enhanced by a small fine dining restaurant; Michelle’s. We enjoyed creative well-presented entrees featuring fresh seafood and local produce. In my opinion, the meals far exceeded other restaurant offerings in the area in terms of quality, price, and service.

The Ivy Manor is conveniently located in the heart of Bar Harbor - you can walk to everything. It is also just a few miles from Acadia National Park. The room was nice and included a gas fireplace (not needed in July). Breakfast each morning was excellent.

Quiet retreat. Even though it sets back just off a busy sidewalk and Main St, you would never know it once you get inside. Walking distance to Ocean with Many shops along the way. Attention to detail. The owners are extremely accommodating. Amazing Eats - Happy to find a Gluten Free Menu this year! Rooms. I found myself in one of the several rooms that had been updated. Very tastefully done and King bed so comfortable.Everything very clean. Loved the fact that I could open the windows to let in the outside breeze. The house of IVY, just lovely!

My Family was in Bar Harbor for the graduation of our niece. Family members had arrived from Savannah, GA, Atlanta, GA, Raleigh, NC and special friends from Merida, Mexico. We wanted an excellent dining experience, but with a casual and intimate atmosphere, not available in a public restaurant. John Poole and his staff delivered everything we wanted and more. We were afforded a private reception area and separate dining room that allowed our group to mingle and interact as if we were in a private home. And then the food and service met everyone's heightened expectations. This night was the highlight and culmination of our time in Bar Harbor and we can't thank John and his group enough. I highly recommend them for a night of fine dining or for their help to make a special occasion really special.
