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

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.

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.


Outstanding in every way. Location is awesome

Bar Harbor Retreat

It was a great get away. What we found out is that you must stay more then 2 nights. There is to much to see and do. We hated to leave. We'll be back! See you soon!! The B&B was a great place to lay your head and breakfast was awesome.


The best place to stay in Bar Harbor.

5 on September 14, 2015

The Ullikana is a fabulous inn. Roy and Helene are friendly hosts that provide knowledgable insights into hiking, shopping and dining. The location is right in town so at the end of the day all of the wonderful Bar Harbor restaurants, shops and galleries are just a short walk away. And by the way, Helene's breakfasts are not to be missed.


Great B&B

Perfect Stay in Bar Harbor

Highly recommend the Ullikana. Besides being absolutely beautiful, it is in a perfect location to explore Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park. Helene and Roy are lovely hosts. They are extremely warm, welcoming, and helpful. The evening happy hour provides an opportunity to chat with the other guests in a friendly and inviting atmosphere. I have no hesitation encouraging you to visit Ullikana. Thank you Helene and Roy for your hospitality.
