This was my first experience staying in a B&B and it was delightful. Walk across the street to Wells Beach or enjoy the close proximity to lots of restaurants and all the attractions of Ogunquit. Haven by the Sea is a completely "retooled" church building and it is absolutely charming. The rooms are adequate and exceptionally clean. A delicious breakfast... More

John & Susan have always provided a wonderful experience, as if we were coming back home. Everything was wonderful as usual and we look forward to our next visit. After all we have been "visiting" for 10 years!

From the moment we arrived, the hosts introduced us to other guests. They made you feel at home and did their best to create a comfortable, friendly atmosphere. Breakfast was delicious and different every day. We especially enjoyed the late afternoon happy hour and conversation with the hosts and other guests. The rooms, as well as the entire bed &... More

We've just returned from a return visit to Haven by The Sea. Again, we were not disappointed! The accomodations, hospitality, and opportunity to meet new guests can not be beat!! John and Susan are hands-on innkeepers who strive to meet any and all needs (dinner reservations, directions, etc) that guests may have..... these are the traits that set them apart... More

This Inn was fabulous. It was it a great location in wells where you could easily walk to the beach in a matter of 2 minutes. My husband and I had coffee on the beach in the mornings and went for walks on the beach before our sleepy teens woke to eat breakfast. Breakfast was served in a very nice... More

We're not usually drawn to B & B's, but had no time to dilly dally over where to stay and took the plunge based on Trip Advisor. We were well satisfied with our 1 night stay despite truly lousy weather. The owners were helpful, attentive, and amusing. The room was well appointed and comfortable. There were yummy drinks and hors... More

John and Susan did it again! Even on our fourth visit to Haven by the Sea, John and Susan have such a gifted warmth in making our visit feel as special as the first time. This year in particular, my husband and I really enjoyed specific aspects to their Inn. Being 5 months pregnant in this August heat, we appreciated... More

When you stay at a B & B, you expect it to have a certain feel to it in terms of charm and attention to detail. Haven By The Sea exceeded these expectations with incredible attention to detail, a stellar location (just one easy block to the beach), and service that went above and beyond. John and Susan are such... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here this past weekend as part of a last minute beach trip. We chose Wells due to this B & B (originally planning on staying in Ogunquit), and we couldn't have been more pleased with the choice. The bed and breakfast itself is a charming renovated church with plenty of common space. Our room (the... More
