Pristine B&B, preferred location & personable innkeepers - perfect!”

4.8 on June 24, 2016

This was an early anniversary get-away and our 1st time to visit Maine. Ullikana was recommended in guidebooks and online. We were not disappointed when we arrived and saw it in person. The B&B has beautiful artwork, woodwork, and stained glass throughout but is a very comfortable home where you feel relaxed and at ease. The location is excellent. Except for driving to Acadia National Park, our car wasn't needed at all in town. You are quietly tucked back from Main Street right off the Shore Path and can walk to boating excursions, restaurants, shops, and even Bar Island when the tide is low. The staff were professional and not the least bit stuffy. We were never there for the afternoon wine and cheese, but the breakfasts were superb and accommodations were exceeded when I informed them of a food allergy. Simply a delightful experience all around. The rooms vary in size and style, so view pictures before selecting a room.

Surpassed our Expectations!

5 on June 06, 2016

The benchmark has been set for all B&Bs to follow! Having read so many positive reviews on the Inn at Ullikana, we were looking forward to our stay with great expectations and we were not disappointed! From the moment we arrived until the moment we left, we were treated like long-lost friends. The owners and staff were amazing, the accommodations immaculate, and the breakfasts delicious. Light refreshments and wine were served in the late afternoon, just enough to take the edge off before dinner. Recommendations for restuarants and activities in the area (besides Acadia National Park) were extremely helpful. Do yourself a favor and stay here on your visit to Bar Harbor. You will not be disappointed.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you so much for the nice review. We are very happy you enjoyed your stay. Hope to see you again one day.


Best (and our favorite) Bed and Breakfast EVER

5 on March 06, 2016

I've lost count of how many stays we've had at Ullikana and every one has been a delight. The rooms are charming, cozy, and impeccably decorated; breakfasts are outstanding and beautiful (I think about them year-round); the view and location perfect--right in town but in a hidden little pocket with a lovely harbor view. Roy and Helene (and Louie) are exceptional hosts--lovely, friendly and so knowledgeable about Acadia. It feels like coming home each time we arrive. Can't say enough good about this wonderful Inn.

One of our favorite places EVER

5 on November 14, 2015

My husband booked Ullikana after he sent some links for me to choose from online. I chose Ullikana, because they had a room there that had everything we wanted, including a fireplace and patio with a view of the harbor. They also accommodated my food intolerances and cooked special breakfasts for me. The food was delicious and beautifully presented. They also recommended and booked reservations for us at local restaurants. Roy and Helene were absolutely perfect hosts--very knowledgeable about area attractions, and willing to spend time with the guests. They are both easy-going and fun to talk with. The house itself is gorgeous and the decor more than exceeded my expectations. Everything was charming and comfortable. The varied collection of art is so fun to look at, and there are warm hospitable touches throughout Ullikani. The whole place is sparkling clean. The housekeeping staff were very polite and friendly, and did a fabulous job on our room every day. Ullikana is perfectly located where you can walk to town for souvenir shopping, eating at the local restaurants, and walking along the harbor. My husband and I both had a wonderful time there. We would definitely stay there again! I highly, highly recommend this outstanding B&B.


Perfection

5 on November 01, 2015

Arriving here felt like coming home, everything about this wonderful B&B is special. The welcome, the service, the breakfasts, the comfortable rooms and the location. I cannot think of one thing to improve, for us, it hit the mark and was the highlight of our four centre tour of New England. Acadia National Park is stunning and Roy’s extensive knowledge of the area ensured we didn’t miss any of the best spots. I celebrated my 50th birthday whilst staying here, made even more memorable by the staff and guests of the Ullikana. Thank you. Roy and Helene have created something truly exceptional, I knew within 30 minutes of arriving, that I would return again to this wonderful inn.


Another great stay at the Ullikabna

4.6 on October 15, 2015

We have stayed at the Ullikana many times & it seems that each time is better than the last. Roy & Helene pay close attention to every detail that makes our stay perfect.


Eleven

4.8 on October 15, 2015

We stayed at the Ullikana for the first time in August of 1995. The decision was made after one phone conversation with Roy. His friendly and genuinely helpful personality was clearly evident. In person he and Helena are even better. We have stayed at B&Bs from California to Maine to Dublin to St. Thomas. We have not found innkeepers that surpass Roy and Helena. The staff: ditto. The stay we just completed is our tenth. Five of them included taking friends with, and they have also returned. The house just keeps getting better; with constant upgrades that do not detract from the character. The quiet location is only 300 feet from the ocean and 500 feet from main street shops and restaurants.
