About Us

Rick De Coyte, Sabrina DeTurk and their daughter, Violet, are your hosts at the Yardarm Motel. We purchased the property in 2021 and are slowly working to modernize while maintaining the vintage charm of one of Maine’s remaining roadside motels.

Both Rick and Sabrina have a background in the arts and have lived and worked in places as diverse as London, Philadelphia and Dubai. Sabrina grew up in Maine and wanted Violet to enjoy the same quality of life she experienced; Rick, a UK native, is still getting used to the harsh winters but loves the rugged beauty and changing light of the Maine coast.

With the Yardarm Motel and Digitalprintmaker we hope to create a little oasis of art and family (and pet-friendly!) fun close to the action of Bar Harbor and Camden but that offers a chance to slow down and take in some of the less-discovered sites of this region.

We look forward to welcoming you to our home in Searsport and are ready to help make your stay in Maine a great one!
