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.

6/23/2015 If we could give more than 5 stars we would. You can pay more but you won't find better. Our experience of Haven By The Sea is coming to a close as hardworking and caring inn keepers John and Susan Jarvis will conclude this part of their lives and start anew in the next chapter. They will apply their... More

My family, friends and I have been enjoying at least 2 visits a year to Haven by the Sea since it originally opened with owners, Susan and John, the Incredible Innkeepers. We are always amazed how much energy, enthusiasm and genuine caring we receive from Susan and John during each and every stay. From the moment of arrival, they magically... More

Once again we have enjoyed a wonderful weekend in a little spot of paradise. Our weekend was full of games, ocean play, arcades, sparklers on the beach, theater, lots of "catching up" time. We renewed our vows for the next 50 years, thoroughly enjoyed all of our family together making memories. John and Susan we can't thank you enough for... More

This is our third year staying at Haven by the Sea and it seems to get better everytime. John and Sue are the ultimate hosts and make you feel right at home. Breakfast was amazing and the rooms are beautiful. My wife and I could not have been happier with our stay!

The establishment is nothing less than perfect. I have never felt so much at home, away from home. A huge part of that is because of John & Sue. They are ALWAYS doing their best to accommodate your needs. They welcomed us by giving my husband and I a big hug and showing us around the B&B. We immediately felt... More

The room was a good size and could have accommodated three people if we needed it to. The in-suite, private bathroom was also good sized, clean, and included a shampoo/conditioner/body wash dispenser. The room had access to free wi-fi, which was a bonus for us. Our hosts gave us many recommendations for things to do while we were in town,... More

We stayed at Haven By The Sea for our third year and it was amazing yet again. The Haven is a beautiful property with each guest room being comfortable and nicely decorated. Although every aspect of the property from the ambiance to location are great, what truly makes this property are the owners, John and Sue. They truly make the... More

There is a sign on the wall inside which reads, "You are strangers here but once". That quote hits the nail on the head and our experience was fantastic. When we walked in I was immediately greeted with a hug. I had spoken with the owners, John and Sue, on two separate occasions on the phone while setting up our... More
