Captain A. V. Nickels Inn

127 E Main St
Searsport, 04974
Reviews:
Unexpectedly good and better each day that we stayed. We booked this inn because it was centrally located on the mid-coast harbor of Maine, had a great price and suite that over-looked the harbor. At $200 a night, it was a peach of a deal. We made our reservation back in the spring before the summer prices. We normally stay in the Select Registry inns so this was a venture for us but they were all $400-$700 a night in this area and the rooms were not as big, not as private and were triple the price for the same amenities. We stayed in the Captain's Suite. The room was spacious with a sturdy king-sized bed and lots of floor space. The bathroom was also spacious with a Jacuzzi tub and separate shower. There was a small kitchenette with a microwave, sink and Keurig. There was a living area with a big flat screen. Best of all there was an amazing porch that looked out over the harbor where the full moon rose every evening over the water. This porch was SO enjoyable for coffee in the morning, a mid-day book or and evening glass of wine. The food was delicious and generous. There was a 3 course breakfast each morning that would keep you fed til mid afternoon. First course of a dish of fresh fruit. It varies each day, sometimes with thinly sliced smoked meat, sometimes with yogurt. The main course was some sort of egg, meat and starch. They were all hearty and delicious. It varied each day from Eggs Benedict to quiche to scrambled eggs with bacon and hash-browns. The last course was some pastry like creme brulee french toast or Belgian waffles. They were quick to take note of my allergens and modify the meal for me. We had dinner in the restaurant one evening it was equally well done. At the end of each day we returned to the room to find a complimentary cheese and fruit tray and a glass of our wine of choice. It was a generous and unexpected perk. The service was the best. Brenda and Mike bought the place about a year ago and are still renovating this inn from the 1800s. It did not stop them from being friendly, attending to everything that we needed and providing the friendly, personable service. They really put the crowning edge on this experience. By the end of the stay, they felt like old friends that we need to get back to visit soon. At first glance, we were concerned that this small town inn would be less than what we expected. There were a few glitches with small details like missing towels in the kitchenette, or limited hanging space but those problems were minor. In the end, it turned out to be great experience with genuine service and wonderful food at a great price. I'll be back.

Vacationed in Belfast Maine and stumbled across this little place service was fast food was really good!.We had subs the steak and cheese was made perfectly and meatball sub was one of the best I'd ever had! Don't hesitate to eat here if you want a quick dinner or lunch!
Very good pizza. Thin and crispy with great ingredients. good value. Definitely a try if in Searsport. The dough is homemade and hand tossed the ingredients are fresh and tasty. definitely a great little pizza parlor in this lovely small town.
SO GOOD! Don't let the outside appearance turn you off! We were on vacation in Maine and stumbled in this place based on yelp reviews. The mozzarella sticks and pizza were delicious. The ingredients were fresh and everything was so tasty. The woman working was friendly and welcoming. If I'm ever in Maine again, I'm making a trip back here.

Searsport Shores Ocean Campground

216 W Main St

Reviews:
I give it a mixed review. Great campground with a ton of amenities: a great lodge with a pool table, ping pong, and a great deck to sit and watch the rain. Our campsite (#16) was beautiful, with a great view of the water. But, when it rained, the entire site went underwater. From the fire pit to the picnic table to our tent. A giant bog. It rained for 3 days of our 7 day visit and trudging around that site was not fun at all. We ended up taking a break from the site and staying in a hotel one night to dry out. Maybe with a different site, I might go back.
I have stayed at Searsport Shores twice. Both times at the same site (16). I am a pretty experienced camper with average expectations for campgrounds. I greatly respect places that are true to their advertising, and Searsport Shores is a winner. I found Astrig incredibly accommodating and kind. I found the rest of the staff to be helpful, industrious and funny. As for the campsites, the ocean front ones are fabulous (17 is particularly private and lovely). I love that there are couples and family sections, with noise being of great importance for those campers who don't want every night to be a full blown Bacchanalia. I have had lovely experiences both times, however the second time was a bit rainy. No one is at fault for the rain, but the site gets and stays pretty soggy if it gets serious rain. Just prepare accordingly. Finally, in response to the first review and how it was handled - I think that the staff are very straightforward about rules and expectations. They are not at fault for campers delays, problems, or late night party preferences. If you want that, go to a state park. Also, we have camped up and down the coast of Maine for years. This is, by far, one of the nicest, cleanest, and truest to the online description as we've found. It disappointed me a bit that there are two sites listed here that are obviously the same campground. I think that every place gets a bad review eventually and that shutting that down defeats the purpose of Yelp. Not a cool move, in my opinion. But, I also have no idea how hard it must be to run a nice, clean and competitive campground.
Looked pretty funky and interesting but $88 for a campsite?????! Just to sleep for the night? Drove down the road and found a nice room for $1 more

Excellent pies. We stopped for dinner once and it was good but we went back to get pie two more times. Toll house cookie pie is great but make sure you warm it up. The blueberry is not too sweet and the coconut cream is right on.
Good for groups. Good seafood. Best onion rings. I only eat them when I'm here. Buddy is a peach. We have been a fan since his days at Weathervane in Belfast. Good fried scallops! We came in and Erin was wonderful. She was super great with the children and beyond speedy. Super service. This is a must stop in Searsport. Update: Buddy does not disappoint. His customer service is outstanding. The food is great. We will always dine here. They take reservations for large groups. They are very child friendly.
Haddock stew was tasteless and overcooked. Haddock sandwich was very greasy --the only plus was generous portion
