Just what I expected.

A Return to Quality

Prior management has returned. As a result the restaurant is back to its high standards. The menu has changes, with an accent on Italian cuisine. I had the lobster linguine - outstanding. I look forward to returning next summer to try a couple of other entrees.

A Return to Quality

4.4 on July 28, 2016

The prior owners have taken back the Inn from a lackluster management that operated the Inn for the past three years, and it shows!! The prices are the same for the rooms but the rooms are spotless (except for the fly I let in when I walked in the front door) and the service is outstanding. The dining experience has improved, which is just a bad explanation, since it was unsatisfactory in 2015 and is now outstanding. Breakfast was a joy, although I should not have eaten all the wonderful French Toast on Sunday morning (I hate the diet I've put myself on to recover). For dinner, the restaurant has changed its approach, focusing on an Italian theme, but with plenty of Downeast flavors. I only had the opportunity to have one evening meal during my stay - the lobster linguini. There was plenty of lobster in the meal, which, if I was counting correctly, included the claws and knuckle meat of three lobsters (I'm assuming the tails went to other entrees), so the meal had the equivalent of at least a whole lobster, and at a reasonable price. There was garlic in the meal, but it did not overwhelm the more delicate lobster, and provided the right additional flavor. The other elements of the dining experience, linen table cloths, a rose on each table, and high quality service added to the experience. Overall, I'm glad the Inn has returned, and I'm looking forward to 2017.

Welcome back IVY Manor

The owner Judy is back with a new restaurant featuring her heritage cuisine, Italian. We felt welcome from the time we arrived until we left. The newly renovated king suite was decorated very well with a touch of Judy everywhere you looked. A must try is the chateau breaundt for two. Absolutely brilliant. The meal was so good the first night, we canceled our reservation at one of the suggested restaurants and had dinner at the ivy manor again.

We had a wonderful stay in Bar Harbor at the Ivy Manor. The room was beautiful and very large. It was located on the first floor so very convenient to get into. The food was excellent. The hosts were always so helpful. The location of Ivy Manor is great, right on Main Street next to all of the shops. We would recommend this place to everyone.

Loved our stay!

This B & B is the best! Christine and John will go out of their way to make your stay everything you want! The location is ideal (steps from everything in town), the rooms are spacious and lovely, and the breakfast is fabulous - made from fresh and local ingredients. Can't say enough positive things about this gem!

Signature Dish

Praline Bacon
A Delectable morning specialty. You'll rave about the Ivy Manor Inn's breakfast special. Thick bacon perfectly covered with rich dark brown sugar then sprinkled with freshly crushed pecans then baked to a desired crispness! Oh, of course, creme brulee blueberry french toast!
