My wife Jackie and myself just returned from a wonderful 2 nights stay at the "Church". John and Susan have much to be proud of, their welcome to the inn made you feel just like family. They have a way of getting people together, making new friendships as easy as a simple hello. Best of luck and happiness in you... More

John and Susan are innkeepers extraordinaire! They are welcoming and will help with any need. The inn itself is in a perfect location, situated between the beach and the marsh. This was our third trip and was every bit as good as the first.

I recently enjoyed my annual vacation at Wells Beach and was fortunate enough to stay once again at Haven By The Sea. To me, it feels like coming home again. John and Susan did everything to make my stay comfortable, enjoyable, relaxing and fun. The full course breakfast is always delicious and the evening Happy Hours on the back patio... More

We have been visiting Haven By The Sea for twelve years. As so many reviews on here state, John and Susan Jarvis are the consummate hosts. From the very first time that we arrived there twelve years ago and now we have been treated like family. Haven By The Sea is steps from Wells Beach and with so may guests... More

John and Susan are the BEST! Together they have made this place a treasure to enjoy just steps from the beach. You will laugh and have an amazing time making new friends here. Be prepared to be spoiled! Susan is an absolute genius in the kitchen. My wife and I hope to get back there soon. Enjoy!!!

A stay at the Haven by the Sea is a treasure. Every need is met by the Innkeepers, Susan and John. Breakfast is homemade and delicious. Best concierge services anywhere. Rooms are spacious and well maintained. Steps away from the beach and the Happy Hour is a way to meet the other guests and get to know Susan and John... More

We really enjoyed our time staying at the Haven by the Sea and admire the total commitment and attentiveness of the innkeepers, John & Sue to the needs of their guests. This is a home away from home! The breakfasts are always first class and so is the service. Gil

John and Susan are THE best innkeepers of this B&B. They have kept a gorgeous place to relax and enjoy over the years. My husband and I go up every year for our anniversary. The rooms are all different, eclectic and comfortable. They make your stay so enjoyable and they both keep you laughing along the way. Breakfast is to... More

Absolutely fantastic experience, from the beginning of our stay until the end. John and Susan are wonderful people and extremely accommodating. My girlfriend has a gluten and dairy allergy that I forgot to mention (of course!). They went above and beyond to accommodate her and her needs during breakfast. They were fantastic people during our stay, whether it was during... More

As usual, everything was perfect. The room(#6-0ur favorite), the late afternoon social hour with our hosts, John and Susan and the wonderful(as usual) breakfast. John and Susan always make us feel we're best friends. Thanks for all the great memories. We'll miss you so.
