My husband and I stayed at the Ullikana for 5 nights, we were only supposed to stay 3, but we loved Bar Harbor and the Ullikana so much, that we cancelled 2 nights in a different town and stayed put! The breakfasts are amazing! Helene is a wondeful cook! And Roy was so helpful with showing us maps of the area, and giving us tips and advice about the area and Acadia National Park. They were amazing hosts! The view from the back and the terrace is amazing, you look straight out over the Harbor. In the afternoons, they serve wine and cheese and it provides a beautiful and relaxing feeling before you make your way back out for the evening. The Ullikana is within walking distance to everything in Bar Harbor but provides a quiet relaxing atmosphere!
We originally stayed in the Yellow House (just across the driveway from the main part of the Inn where breakfast is served) in Belmont Room. The room is cozy and quaint and makes you feel more like you're a guest in someone's well-appointed home than in an Inn. The Yellow House has the feel of a Maine Beach House with wide-planked painted floors, just perfect!!
After the 3rd night, we moved across the driveway to the main building of the Ullikana (our room was already booked when we decided spur of the moment to add on the 2 extra nights). We moved to the Library Room. It was small, but beautiful! Small rooms don't bother me because really, how much time do you spend in them? I only mention it because I know some people enjoy a spacious room. It is on the first floor at the front of the building, but still managed to be quiet, probably because most people spend the time at the back of the house for the amazing water view!!
We were diappointed when it was to go home and we will definitely stay there again when we return to Bar Harbor. I would highly recommend the Ullikana!
