My wife and I recently spent 3 weeks in the Boston area touring, visiting family and friends, and attending a major High School Reunion. We needed a three day break from our exhausting schedule, and, deciding to get out of town, discovered Haven by the Sea on TripAdvisor. The references were wonderful and so we went ahead and booked a two night stay in early October.
We are so glad that we did! Our Maine vacation (escaping from our Boston vacation) was superb. The remodeled church which is Haven by the Sea has been converted to a special place with outstanding and unique common areas. The individual guest rooms are beautifully decorated, spacious and quiet.
Our hosts Susan and John were absolutely wonderful and incredibly helpful. They cooked gourmet breakfasts each morning, served generous glasses of wine at happy hour, and offered wonderful advice about restaurants and sights to see. They even booked our restaurant reservations for us. We had two of the best meals of our entire trip as a result of their advice.
The location is roughly mid way between Ogunquit and Kennebunkport (about 15 minutes from each). There are also hiking trails on a nature preserve in Wells worth exploring (bring your camera). You can't beat the location for convenience and quiet enjoyment of the area.
Susan and John both have such warm and friendly personalities that you feel as if you've known them for years.
Staying at the Haven by the Sea was a wonderful vacation experience.
