“best place on the ocean ever”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2014

Love this view and the hosts are priceless. staff are wonderful.I loved the peace and quiet. Place is nicely appointed and impeccable. breakfast included and the dinners are excellent! Our fan squeaked a little but that was my only beef. If I had complained, I am sure it would have been fixed immediately. We only needed it one evening.
The porch is a great place to join friends for drinks. I will be back again and again. The rates are a great value for all you get.

Room Tip: go for ocean view/worth the price!

My son was getting married in Georgetown and we found this B&B after plans to stay at another location fell through at the last minute (ended up being the best thing that could have happened)! From the time I made my first panic phone call until the moment we checked out, Eve and the rest of the crew could not have been more helpful. She went out of her way to help my son and our family with wedding plans and accomodations.
We were fortunate to have been able to stay at the Grey Haven in the suite overlooking the ocean and the accomdations were perfect and met our needs and then some. We had various family and wedding party members in and out of our room the day of the wedding and the owners were very accomodating and welcoming to all of them.
The Inn is beautiful and very comfortable, the grounds are immaculate and the view is incredible. The continental breakfast was great and was more than enough to start our day. After the wedding we came back exhausted and were greeted by the owners with a nightcap. We sat in the living room enjoying our drink and talking about what a beautiful area we were in and how perfect everything was for us.
We can't wait to come back and stay when we can actually sit and relax on the porch and just watch the ocean or read a book. We will certainly be back and I highly recommend the Grey Haven Inn to anyone that is looking to stay in beautiful Georgetown, Maine.

Room Tip: All the rooms that we saw on the second floor are beautiful If you can get a room with an ocean vie...

There's one or two rooms without an ocean view. They have a reputation of double booking so get a confirmation number.
No kids under 12 and the walls are a little thin so you can hear noise in the next room.
The desserts are usually good but they prefer the microwave over the oven to warm them.
Look at other review sites as well.

We had the pleasure of being able to spend the night at this great B&B in October. The grounds are beautiful and the owners were very welcoming. We wished we could have stayed longer! Highly recommended, even if only for a night away for a little peace and quiet.

We would get up in the morning, have a continental breakfast, then go out and sit in the wonderful old rocking chairs and just take in the ambiance and tranquil mood of the place. The morning sun warmed us up and allowed us just sit there and take in the view and surrounding sounds of wind and surf, along with the odd lobster boat heading out to their traps.....our host Dick made sure we were well looked after, with tips of where to get the best lobster roll, ten minutes away, and where to go for shopping.....all good stuff.......will come back

We stayed at Grey Havens Inn on our honeymoon. It was perfect. The bed and breakfast was beautifully decorated and felt very cozy. We loved sitting on the wrap around porch in the evening enjoying the view with a glass of wine or a yummy blueberry martini from the bar. Our room very clean, and everything was high quality; sheets, towels, mattress. Breakfast is included every morning - very good coffee. The restaurant in the b&b is called 'Blue'. The food was amazing and we actually ate there 2 out of the 3 nights we stayed at Grey Havens. We would highly recommend staying in the sunrise suite especially to see the beautiful sun rise in the morning on the private balcony. Dick and Eve run a fantastic bed & breakfast. We will be back!

My husband and I had a crazy summer and just wanted to get away and relax, so we booked at Grey Havens Inn. The B&B is clean, cozy, comfortable, and quiet. Really quiet, so much so that we felt a little afraid to talk to each other at times!

The inn the right up the road from Reid State Park, which has gorgeous rocky beaches. It's also really close (~1mi) to Five Islands Lobster Co., so that's convenient.

We stayed in the Cottage Room, the cheapest of the options, because we felt like we'd just use the room to sleep and that if we wanted to look at the view, we'd go out to the porch. For us, that worked well. However, if you plan to lounge around in the room, definitely go for one of the rooms with a view, because the view is beautiful. The pictures you see are very representative of what you can expect.

The restaurant, Blue, was also very good. The breakfast included in your room rate is excellent and the dinners there are really good as well. The only thing about dinner is that for a B&B in Maine, the prices are a bit high. $15 for their signature blueberry martini. For comparison, the drinks at Eleven Madison Park in NYC (one of the top restaurants in the world) are generally $16. But if you're prepared to just have a nice, relaxed dinner and not looking for something cheap, you'll be really happy with Blue. I'd suggest making a reservation, especially if you want a table by the window.

If you stay here and plan to hang out on the porch, REMEMBER YOU INSECT REPELLENT. We got destroyed by mosquitoes day and night the first day when I didn't yet use my bug spray.
