Susan and John are wonderful hosts. They definitely pay attention to details to make your stay very enjoyable. They surprised us with the room we always wanted to stay in, but was always booked at the time we were there. It was amazing we have two beautiful rooms with our own patio. Our breakfasts were fantastic each morning of our... More

We have been going to the Haven since the year after it opened, seventeen years ago. Since our first visit, we have never stayed in another Inn or B&B... The Haven is the best hands down and there's no comparison. The Haven By The Sea is an exceptional property within 100 yards of beautiful Wells Beach. From the minute you... More

The best B&B inWells. We are repeat guests for a reason. John and Susan are exceptional at what they do. They are very welcoming and find time during the day to stop and talk to you and the other guests. Susan can impress with her first-rate breakfasts. John can whip up outstanding drinks at Temptations during happy hour. The B&B... More

The location is perfect for beach, walking etc. We have never been to a place that could compare with the friendliness of John and Susan. They make you feel at home immediately. Susan's breakfasts are outstanding and with John serving what more could we ask. Also, love meeting so many interesting people. Bob and I loved the whole stay.

Outstanding facility with an ownership that leaves no stones unturned The special breakfast each and every morning was terrific. But make no mistake the location is ideal and the setting is warm with comfortable rooms and a nice ambiance. Lastly, Susan and John are special and we cannot thank them enough for the experience. We know they will soon move... More

Owners John and Susan are the perfect hosts! They make the b and b experience truly special, and it's no surprise that they have so many repeat vacationers. After 2 days, it felt like we were leaving two good friends. Sadly, they are selling the inn after 18 years, but John and Susan should be proud of the establishment they... More

What can I say. FANTASTIC in every aspect. Location. Appeal. Cleanliness. Spacious. Inviting. Friendly. John & Susan are terrific. Stopped in on Saturday for a look and Susan was gracious enough to give us a tour & a history lesson about the place. She was sure to point out the original pew & confessional, now used as a bar. Luckily... More

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.
