“Haven By The Sea = Divine”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2013

Trust me, even though this B&B is just a short walk from the beach, you may not want to leave its comfy quarters. The gorgeous converted church is welcoming and charming, the rooms clean and comfortable. But its the hosts -- John and Susan -- that will make your stay memorable. Susan lights up the room, and you'll devour the breakfasts she creates and cooks each morning. John plays the role of host with panache, attending to your every need happily -- with his own hilarious brand of humor. It's safe to say: the Haven is heaven. You won't want to leave.

Fantastic location with a view of the marsh from the back porch and just a short stroll to the beach and the shops. The owners are welcoming and hilarious. The converted church is beautifully decorated. The breakfasts and cocktails are delicious. Susan and John take every effort to make the stay memorable.

We just took a last minute getaway to Wells ME, and found Haven By The Sea through the Select Registry. Susan and John are exceptional hosts, and their B&B is wonderful! Having never been to Wells, we weren't sure what to expect, but Susan and John made us dinner reservations at a phenomenal restaurant, gave recommendation for local attractions, and made sure that we had great time. The Haven is picture perfect, immaculate, and filled with character. Definitely on our return list!

Just spent another girls weekend at Haven by the Sea and it was wonderful as usual. John (Basil) and Susan and their innkeeper assistant extraordinaire, Sally, are the best innkeepers, bartenders, cooks, reservation makers, listeners and friends. We enjoy a tasty breakfast on the deck, head to the beach for some rays, check out the local attractions and make sure we are back for some delicious drinks and lots of fun company before heading out to a five-star restaurant for supper, or a star studded performance at the playhouse in Ogunquit. We never hesitate to recommend this wonderful experience to everyone.

I have spent more than a dozen wonderful nights at the Haven over the years and every time is perfection! Susan and John make everyone feel welcome and at home in their beautifully renovated little church on Church Street. The rooms are very comfortable and roomy. We can watch sunrise on the porch, fantastic breakfasts on the deck overlooking the marsh, then take a one minute stroll to a quiet beach. It's a five minute walk to the public beach, shops, eateries and trolley stop. Susan and John also know all the best places for a wonderful meals in the area and will make reservations for you as you enjoy a sinfully wonderful cocktail mingling with other guest (if you wish).

Wanting to spent a few days by the sea, we chose to stay at Haven by the sea since we had toured it a few years prior. We were very happy with our choice. The inn is on a quiet street, very close to the ocean. It offers a wonderful view on the marsh in the outdoor dining area and the room was spacious, clean and confortable.
The hosts, John and Susan, were very helpful with their knowledge of the different restaurants in the area and offered to call to make reservations on our behalf.
The overall atmosphere is one of light hearted, easy going hospitality.
Great breakfast too!
