All-time Favorite B&B

5 on September 18, 2016

We returned to the Ullikana in September for our 12th annual visit, and as always, everything was perfect. It is a beautiful house in a great location, and the inn keepers (Roy, Helene, Cyd and Louie) go to great lengths to make all their guests feel welcome and comfortable. This was true even when I had a fall on a trail, and they brought me breakfast in the hospital!


Labor Day excellence at the Ulikana

5 on September 08, 2016

Everything about the Ulikana is first class. The accommodations, the breakfasts and, most of all, the hosts. We come to Acadia every Labor Day weekend to hike and bike. We have been looking for a place to call home. I believe we have finally found it.


Perfection!

Quiet location just off main street with great view of the water. Helene & Roy went out of their way to make our stay wonderful. Incredible breakfasts served on the outside patio.

We found the Inn at Ullikana to exceed our expectation for our recent stay in Bar Harbor. Very close to downtown, friendly hosts and the room and breakfast were perfect. We highly recommend.

Lovely B&B in ideal Bar Harbor location

4.4 on August 22, 2016

Although my boyfriend and I were in the smallest room on the top floor (originally built for the initial homeowners' child), it was charmingly decorated and extremely clean and cozy. The innkeepers are more than helpful and very friendly. Given how hectic Bar Harbor can be in the summertime, Roy and Helene made sure we were comfortable and were instrumental in making our three-day stay a memorable one.


Great hosts and an enjoyable stay.

We stayed here 2 nights in mid August and had a wonderful visit. Very convenient to downtown Bar Harbor, and a quaint home with history and charm. Highly recommend.


This Place Is Absolute Perfection

5 on August 18, 2016

My husband & I stayed at Ullikana Inn for two nights this past August during a trip to Bar Harbor. This was our last and hands-down favorite stop in a 2 week vacation up the East Coast. I would recommend this b&b to anyone looking for a charming, luxurious, thoughtful, intimate place to stay in Bar Harbor. The owners Roy and Helena are wonderful hosts - kind, lovely and very knowledgeable of Acadia Park. The inn itself is stunning, with extreme attention to detail. Guests are encouraged to make use of the property and mingle with each other, over decadent breakfasts and wine & cheese in the back patio/garden overlooking the harbor. Thank you Ullikana for making our trip so memorable, we can't wait to go back.

Wonderful Stay

This is a lovely property. Impeccably maintained. The owners couldn't have been nicer or more knowledgeable about Acadia and Bar Harbor. Staff was friendly as well. Food was outstanding. Kitchen area was spotless.location is also ideal. Close to shops but quite, ocean view. Will stay there if we go back to Acadia!!!!

Accomodations were fantastic. Location was perfect. Last and most importantly, our host and hostess were wonderful. If we lived closer, we would be there every weekend.

Thank you so much for the kind words. We are very happy you enjoyed your stay. We would love to see you every week-end


A special inn with lovely owners

5 on August 10, 2016

My daughter and I joined my sister and her husband for a 5 day break in Bar Harbor. My sister has been staying at this Inn for over 20 years- so we decided to see what drew them to come back every year. Now we know! Helene and Roy are lovely Innkeepers- and Helene's French cooking superb. The entire staff- from Sid to the housekeepers are so nice. We stayed in Audrey which is a beautiful bright room on the 3rd floor. It was perfect - the beds are really comfortable. My sister and her husband stay in #6- they had an amazing view. We enjoyed being close to the shore path for morning walks and close to town to walk in for dinner or shopping. I like the fact that I felt away from the bustling town but it was right there if we felt like going to town. Thank you Helene and Roy and staff for a wonderful and memorable stay.
