“The Yellow House & Ullikana”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2012

The Yellow House, Bar Harbor, is a wonderful old cottage along with its sister property, the Ullikana. It is located in the heart of downtown Bar Harbor but still manages to feel secluded. The room was comfortable, spacious, and nicely decorated. Unique original artwork displayed throughout both cottages. Wonderful common rooms to sit and relax by the fireplace after a long day at Acadia. Owners and staff very friendly, and helpful with planning activities, and black lab Louie was so calm and friendly, we wanted to take him home! Excellent breakfasts, presentations were so beautiful I had to take pictures! Weather was warm enough to have breakfast outside, overlooking Frenchman Bay. Definitely worth another visit!

Room Tip: Malvern is a corner room on the 2nd floor, very private, quiet, and bright & cheery during the d...

We stayed three nights in the Yellow House - we had a large and spacious room which was comfortable and had all the ameneties that you needed. This included a small guest kitchen with a fridge so that you could make your own drinks etc.

The inn keepers are very welcoming and can't do enough for you and provide advice and directions of places to visit, drive to or for walks. Breakfasts were excellent and set you up for the day. Free wine and cheese each afternoon was lovely and were very sociable and meant that you met and chatted to the other guests.

The inn is in an ideal location and 5 minutes walk and you are in the centre of Bar Harbor and also only steps away from the Shore Path and some stunning views. The inn is also ideal for access to Acadia Park which mustn't be missed.

A quiet little B&B tucked away between rows of maples with a view of the ocean. Or maybe a warm breakfast served by friendly faces right next to the main hub of Bar Harbor. Why choose. At the Ullikana you can have both. Close enough to everything to make you feel guilty about ignoring your daily exercise, but quiet enough to get in an afternoon nap without any disturbance. And lets face it, thats what Vacation is all about.... That and copious quantities of cheap Lobster. Ask Roy or Helene and they will give you the inside scoop on where the locals go. This is where the trip ends and the vacation begins.

Room Tip: All the rooms are lovely, but the more you pay, the more space you get.

My room in the Yellow House, Malvern, was comfortable and beautiful. The breakfasts were outstanding. Roy and Helene are wonderful hosts. The location, near downtown Bar Harbor and the Shore path cannot be beat.

The inn is in a wonderful location overlooking the harbour. Our room was just beautiful with a separate but lovely bathroom. The breakfast apple pancake was absolutely delicious! A delightful stay. Highly recommended.

The property and location are ideal. What distinguishes this b and b are the owners, they are so nice and helpful. We have stayed here three times. The breakfasts are wonderful, made beautifully and deliciously by Helene.

Just returned from our 5th stay at the Ullikana. Our room (Belmont) in the Yellow House was charming, cozy, and clean. The 3 course gourmet breakfast prepared by lovely Helene and served on the patio overlooking Frenchman's Bay was outrageously delicious. Roy attended to every guest and willing offered hiking, biking, and restaurant recommendations. Evening manager Sid was equally welcoming. Roy and Helene are the consummate innkeepers and the Ullikana remains the best B & B in Bar Harbor.

Room Tip: No pool. Sorry, my error. Fitness Center = Acadia National Park.
