This is our second trip to Haven By The Sea. Susan and John are great hosts and we enjoyed our stay. The food is always great as well as the company. Sad to see Susan and John moving on but we wish them well. This is one of the best B&B's that we've stayed at, always feels like home. I... More

This wonderful B&B is my mother and my selfish indulgence. We have taken our vacations together there since the opening of this beautiful, charming place. John & Susan are like family, and our kind of people. Seeing them is like "coming home". They know absolutely how to make each guest feel so very special. Just a brief walk to the... More

The Haven by the Sea is the best B&B around. Susan and John always make our stay memorable. Anyone can open a B&B. But what makes this B&B successful is the hospitality of the owners. Susan and John are more than "innkeepers"--they have become friends and family to all that visit. We love the gourmet breakfasts, the happy hour on... More

What a lovely evening had by all at this beautiful Maine inn. Cocktails on the back porch overlooking the salt marsh as the sun set. Hors d'oeuvres followed by a very nice Italian dinner. This occasion allowed us to share laughter and conversation with friends, old and new. The inn was full that evening so there were many in attendance.... More

We visited this B&B with our daughter, son-in-law and their friends. John and Susan are incredible hosts with an awesome sense of humor. We were so entertained with John's friendly ribbing of us as we ventured out each day. The B&B is in an old church which was transformed into this amazing B&B through John and Susan's love, hard work... More

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
