“Good times at the Haven”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 2, 2012

Once again, we were not dissappointed with our stay at the Haven. Everything was perfect as usual.
With the beautiful beach just a few steps away, who could ask for anything more? We met some fun people and
had some good conversations, especially at Happy Hour!

I would recommend Haven by the Sea to anyone looking for a relaxing time away. John and Susan, our gracious hosts are the best!

Room Tip: Single rooms, suites and an apartment are available.

Another wonderful visit at Haven by the Sea. This was the 6th year we have come and it is always wonderful with new things every time. My new favorite is the egg w/asparagus dish and blueberry scones. Susan and John are marvelous.

From the momet you step into the Haven by Sea you find two rare gems in John and Sue. They are people that are gifted gemstones, that provide a true "Haven by the Sea". Every part of the B & B provides a place for rejuvination, relaxation and an immaculate slice of perfection. From your palate being wet from various tastes, from Sue's incredible breakfasts, to a smooth glide of godiva chocolate being sipped on, on thier picturesque back deck, is truly remarkable. The beach is beautiful and the Inn is nestled into a quiet area away from the mainroads. They also have a special room for massages. Well worth it! The warmth of the wood filled halls, and the owners will ember within your heart as you drive away. A great place to stay and one does not even have to ask would I do it again? hands down a dozen more times. It's truly a gift and a place one should have the priviledge of staying. Nyack, NY.

The Haven by the Sea is an absolutely perfect retreat! Our host Susan and John were fantastic and made us feel like family immediately upon arrival The best BB we have every stayed at. The inn is exceptionally clean, the breakfast were great and sitting on the deck each morning was a perfect way to start our morning. The Inn is literally minutes from the beach which afforded us the luxury of a morning stroll to capture the sounds of the water and surf. We can't wait to go back again.

We had not spent any time in B&B's but the experience here was terrific. Wonderfully warm John and Susan greeted us and made us feel right at home. The curb appeal is charming and about a one half block from a quiet but very pretty Wells beach. Inn Keeper Susan promptly pulled strings and made us reservations at a nearby restaurant which we ended up not using as my Wife Susan is more captivated by eating even the worst food as long as it is viewing the Ocean. Inn Keeper Susan made us fabulous breakfasts each morning served by Inn Keeper John who smiled joked and at one point we thought he might even break out in song as he served the totally delicious breakfast. Amazing how butter,cream and sugar can be non-caloric too. Rooms and furnishing were very nicely appointed. Because of the Haven's small size John and Susan help to facilitate friendships between guests. John makes a pretty mean Martini and a very nice Gin and Tonic during happy hour served on their homey deck overlooking a marshy salt pond! This little getaway was a great experience for my wife and myself thanks to John, Susan and the Haven by the Sea. Ed & Susan of CT

Room Tip: The first floor rooms are very nice and we would like to try the second floor suite on our next trip...

If you are planning a trip anywhere in the area, Haven By the Sea is the perfect choice. It is located in an ideal setting, close to the beach, shopping, recreational activities and other areas of interest. The rooms are beautifully decorated and immaculate. John and Susan are always so welcoming and we always look forward to seeing them. We have been visiting for years. We have stayed in many places throughout the country and we can truly say Haven by the Sea is the finest we have ever stayed in. We wouldn't think of staying anywhere else. We look forward to total retirement when we are able to visit more often and at different times of the year. I can't wait to stay in one of the rooms with the ocean view. You will never be disappointed.

Room Tip: There are no bad rooms.

July 2012 marked our second stay at Haven by the Sea and it was every bit as enjoyable as our first in July 2010. John & Susan are friendly and welcoming hosts and the Inn is both beautiful and comfortable (we've had the pleasure of staying in guest rooms #1 and #7). The mesmerizing Wells Beach sea shore is just a short stroll from the front door and is a great place for a long, calorie burning walk after John serves up one of Susan's delectable breakfasts. Charming, serene, casual yet elegant are just a few of the adjectives that come to mind when trying to describe the atmosphere at Haven by the Sea. Highly recommended!

Room Tip: Visit their web site to view pictures of the rooms. We've stayed in #1 and #7 and liked both!
