“Great location”
Reviewed 7 June 2014

Our hosts were extremely helpful and served an amazing breakfast. We also enjoyed being able to walk to shore path, restaurants and shops in Bar Harbour. Weather was a little chilly, otherwise we would have had breakfast on the patio with its wonderful view.

It is always a treat to stay at the Ullikana. Roy, Helene, Cyd, and their kind staff are a pleasure. Their recommendations on activities in Acadia or dining and shopping on Mount Desert Island are spot on, and some of the moments spent together simply chatting while overlooking the Harbor are ones that I will cherish forever.

The Ullikana team is always looking to refine the Inn, and every visit I enjoy seeing what surprises there may be. Sometime it is a new room design other times it is a creative landscaping update in the serene garden. This time it was a renovation. Please take a look at Room 5 - The new private bath is stunning!

I returned this week from a weekend getaway with my soon to be sister-in-law. This was her first time staying at the Inn, and after breakfast on our first morning, she was ready to make reservations to return next year. She referred to the Inn as her home. I couldn't have phrased it any better, and I'm counting down the days until I return with my husband at the end of the month - only 20 more days!

Room Tip: Choose a room close to the kitchen so you are first to smell the muffins in the morning!

The Ullikana B&B is perfectly located in a quiet neighborhood in town with a view of the harbor. Rooms are beautifully decorated, full of color and interesting artwork. Beds very comfortable. Hosts Roy and Helene are friendly and welcoming. Homemade breakfasts are delicious. Highly recommended.

There are places you stay for their location. There are places you stay for the ambiance and decor. There are places you stay because the owners can make you feel like cherished friends. The Ullikana has all of this and more. Roy and Helene, the owners would have been successful running any inn, but the Ullikana is quintessentially THEIRS. Warm, welcoming, friendly, stunningly beautiful, ever-so-comfortable and the art is like a contemporary museum. The breakfasts Helene makes (she should write a breakfast cookbook) and Roy's encyclopedic knowledge of Acadia are the frosting on this wonderful cakes. I've been staying there at least once a year for nearly 20 years. Bar Harbor wouldn't be the same without the Ullikana, Roy and Helene.

The Ullikana is the perfect place to enjoy such a charming little town. Helene's breakfasts were amazing, and Roy's hiking tips helped us maximize our time and find the best spots in Acadia. They did everything they could to make our vacation special. Looking forward to returning!

My husband and I have been starting our summer season out at the Ullikana for the past 12 or so years. The owners, Roy and Helene, always make sure our stay is special. The accommodations are always very clean, charming and comfortable. Each room is very tastefully decorated with a wonderful collection of art work and antiques. Helene's breakfasts vary from day to day with her chocolate crepes being my favorite. My husband loves the fresh from the oven muffins. Breakfast will never disappoint you. Roy is always ready to recommend activities in the area and will help with reservations. They have a collection of menu's from the local restaurants, pubs, etc. available for your perusal. The Ullikana is within walking distance of many of the local shops, galleries, boat and trolley tours and eateries. I cannot say enough good things about our stays at the Ullikana. They have never failed to make us feel at home.

Room Tip: All the rooms are different and I would recommend going to the website to look at them.

The personalities of the innkeepers are reflected in all aspects of the b&b. The breakfasts were delicious, the decor refreshingly unconventional, and their intimate knowledge of the area all helped make our stay a delight. This place will not disappoint you!
