About us

The Yardarm Motel been in business since 1951. It is a classic, road-side motel of the type that once filled US Route 1 and its by-ways, serving as a base for families as they explored scenic Mid-Coast Maine or providing a stopping point on the way to Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park.

The motel is under new ownership in 2021 and proprietors Rick and Sabrina (with our daughter Violet) are in the process of upgrading the rooms and amenities with a focus on sustainability and adaptive re-use of the historic structure.

The Yardarm Motel has been welcoming guests for over 70 years…we are excited to welcome YOU to our little haven in Mid-Coast Maine.
