The best place to stay in Bar Harbor.

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.

Excellent Stay!

I recently stayed at the Ullikana Inn with my wife on a short two night visit, and we were both very happy with our stay. The inn and owners exceeded our expectations in every respect. I would certainly return and have already recommend this location to my family and friends. Our room was very clean and well presented, the food was excellent, and the staff was so helpful. It was a great experience, I can't wait to go back.

Perfect location for walking the town or to restaurants. Beautiful room with private deck and chairs. Stayed in mid-August; did not need the air-conditioning. Exceptional breakfasts, both in taste, amount, and visual appeal. Breakfast served outside, so even in August, take a sweater. Inn keepers are knowledgeable, helpful and friendly. We will definitely stay at Ullikana again if our travels take us to Bar Harbor.

The best inn we have stayed in!!!

The house, the setting, the breakfast, the location - everything was wonderful. We met lovely guests and the innkeepers were friendly and welcoming. Town and waterfront were a few steps away and Acadia a very short ride. We will definitely be back!

The Inn that sets the "Bar" for Bar Harbor, Maine

5 on August 08, 2015

My wife and I recently had the pleasure of staying at what may be one of the friendliest and most satisfying of any bed and breakfast we'd ever experienced. The Ullikana as powered by Helene and Roy's contagious kindness and care, is an experience everyone should enjoy at least one time, and if possible, over and over again: the breakfasts were completely satisfying; the comfort of our first floor room very welcome, almost like an oasis in the busy world of summertime Bar Harbor...simply put, staying here was like having our home moved into wonderful coastal Maine...We could go on and on, and we certainly hope the Ullikana does the same!

A delightful stay!

We stayed two nights during July 2015 and would gladly return! A well-maintained, beautiful property managed by two consummate hosts-Roy and Helene! A terrific location, with views of the bay from our balcony and less than a block form main street shopping. We traveled with two teenaged granddaughters who thoroughly enjoyed themselves also.

We are so happy you enjoyed your stay. It was a pleasure to have you and your family at the Ullikana. Looking forward to seeing you again

Ullikana is Unsurpassed!

5 on June 09, 2015

I have stayed in B&Bs all over the country, and this is absolutely my favorite! All the obvious things are there: fantastic rooms, beautiful outdoor view, amazing gourmet breakfasts, appetizers and wine in the afternoon, great advice on activities, etc. In addition, there is something really special there that can not be replicated. Roy, Helene, and the rest of the staff really make it feel like home. They are so genuine and kind, and the atmosphere is definitely affected. Everyone who stays there loves it, and we all talk to each other. (Some of us have even emailed since our return home!) I was sharing with another guest that this was my favorite place, and she said another friend in Florida had said the same thing! You should not miss the opportunity to stay here!
