We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Yardarm the owners were very helpful in directing us to the sites and dining spots in the area. The breakfast room was a nice surprise to enjoy some good coffee, juices and a wide variety of cereals, English muffins etc it was also a great place to visit with other guests. The covered...

The Yardarm had very comfy beds and plenty of blankets and quilts for our cold fall weekend stay during the Common Ground Country Fair. The owners have left the cute 1950's real wood paneling, which was a nice touch. The shower was awesome and hot as long as you wanted it, but the heater was a little sporadic. The owners...

We were walked by another property in Belfast due to arrival confusion and found this property had a vacancy. Our room and bath were small but cute. Since my background was operating a small motel in the 50's & 60's this was deja vu. We found the owners very accommodating. They care about the motel and have a nice, clean...

A pleasant spot near amenities such as gas, food etc while being accessible to peninsula touring on a motorcycle (came up from Massachusetts). The room was quiet, no problems with neighboring rooms, only problem was the gravel drive / lot, which down at the far end (stayed in room 3) at least, was a bit difficult to maneuver in -...

The Yardarm was very comfortable and clean for a reasonably priced motel. The owner was very friendly, and there was a nice breakfast room attached to the main building. It is set back from the road, and therefore very little road noise. There is much to do along route 1 in Maine! We would definitely stay there again.

Friendly & helpful folks, vintage but clean room, our bathroom door wouldn't stay closed but that was more a nuisance than a problem, complimentary breakfast included pastries, English muffins, oatmeal (typical continental breakfast). Most important the bed was comfortable and there was plenty of hot water for showers. Would recommend or would stay again if the need arose.

Quiet, locally owned motel in Searsport. Clean rooms, kind service. In the room there is a history of the house that we appreciated, made us feel the people who were here before us. Would certainly recommend it.

This is a small motel where the owners have tried to make it a pleasing place.. The room was clean and and everything worked well, including the wifi. You can park in front of your room but know the parking area is loose gravel. Screening would have worked better.. Breakfast is simple but adequate and the room spotless.

Sorry to say our experience was not as expected. Owners were very respectful but room was not good. Heater stopped door locked us in! Immediately asked for refund and owners gave without argument! Nice people wrong room! Took couple of minutes for water to run hot. Our travel mates had same issues.

Loved my stay at the Yardarm. First night I stayed in a double bed room #2. No fridge, microwave. Room was small but bed was comfortable & I was tired so it served its purpose. Next two nights I stayed in room #19. Has king bed with memory foam pad, super comfortable. Huge room w/ shower, fridge, microwave, sitting area...

“Rooms with higher numbers are closer to the office... the lower the number, the farther away you'll be! The rooms are backed up against the woods.. open the window for a nice fresh breeze without using the AC.”

“We had the room right next to the office and thought it wold be loud, but it was really quiet. It does not face the road so that may cut down on the road noise seeing as it is quite close to the roadway and lots of large trucks use the road.”
