We spent 3 nights at Ullikana but quickly felt like we were staying with old friends. A delightful respite, wonderful hospitality and breakfasts fit for royalty. We have already recommended this gem to many of our friends and hope to return again soon.

We have visited the Ullikana many times & each time is better than the last. We have been all over the world & this place still rates as one of the best. We always stay in room #6 which has a great view of the harbor. Roy & Helene are the best.

My husband and I spent three night at the Ullikana. This was a return visitto a beautiful part of our country. Since there are so many activities to explore in the Bar Harbor area, we needed someone like Roy to recommend what would be right for us. He kept saying to us, this is what I like to do. They...

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... More

My husband and I stayed in Room #4 for two nights while on a New England fall foliage visit. The moment I saw the outside of the inn I knew it was exactly what I was expecting from a Select Registry Inn. Very welcoming with a magnificent entryway with lots of unique artwork throughout. Our room was beautifully furnished with... More

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... More

We first stayed at the Ullikana on a trip to Maine back in 2003. It was a highlight of that trip. We just completed two weeks in Nova Scotia and decided to return to Maine just to experience the Ullikana one more time. It seemed even better the second time around. Roy and Helene are knowledgeable hosts and they somehow... More

Roy and Helene are excellent host and hostess, having served the public with their excellent property just off the Harbor walk for 25 years. Our room was elegantly appointed, and everyone who worked or stayed in this lovely place was relaxed, pleasant and approachable.

The best word to describe our experience was "perfection". Helene and Roy are so warm and welcoming...and so is their entire staff, especially Syd. They have perfected the art of hosting from the delicious meals, the attention to detail all over the house, and their knowledge of all there is to enjoy in Bar Harbor. In addition,every room in the... More

Ullikana is absolutely the perfect place to stay in Bar Harbor! Roy, Helene, Syd and the entire staff are always there to cater to all your needs. What are the best hiking trails, the best restaurants, directions, special needs, etc. The view overlooking Frenchman's Bay is perfect to enjoy Helene's exceptional breakfasts and afternoon wine & cheese.
