Searsport is a small town with a rich history, located right in the heart of Mid-Coast Maine. The Yardarm Motel is a vintage, roadside motel, built in 1951 by artists from New York. We are quaint and quirky, focused on providing a great base from which you can explore all that Mid-Coast and Downeast regions have to offer.

With Acadia National Park, Bar Harbor, Blue Hill, Camden, Castine, Ellsworth, Lincolnville and more all within about an hour’s drive from the Yardarm, there is plenty to keep you busy. And Searsport itself offers history, hiking and more.

The Yardarm Motel has 18 rooms ranging from cozy budget options with one double bed to larger rooms with two or three beds. We offer a continental breakfast with locally roasted coffee and homemade baked goods. Enjoy an evening around our fire pit or take a walk through our woods. Kids will enjoy playing on the large front lawn or back meadow.

Why pay more to fight the crowds in Bar Harbor or Camden? We are family and pet friendly and look forward to welcoming you.
