“Haven By The Sea is an understatement!”
Reviewed October 10, 2009

My husband and I recently had the pleasure of staying with John and Susan at The Haven and it truely is all that and more.

It is hard to describe, but the connection between John, Susan and The Haven is magic.
They are a manifestation of each other, it is hard to say where one leaves off and the other begins...

When we walked in we were enveloped by the warmth and caring of Susan and John.

Their love and pride in The Haven is evident in every detail. The space is soothing and welcoming, clean and wonderfully decorated. Each time I walked through The Haven I found another detail that I had missed the first time through.

The bedroom was warm and inviting and the bed so very comfortable. I usually don't sleep well away from home, but I slept deeply and woke refreshed at The Haven.

They made sure our every needs were met without being intrusive. At breakfast we were introduced to the others who were staying there and conversation flowed smoothly.

I'm a fussy eater. John and Susan went out of their way to accomodate my needs at breakfast, the raspberry scones were heavenly!

We joined friends of ours there. They were married there 10 years ago and return every year to stay. We can see why they chose The Haven for their Wedding and continue to return.

Thank you John and Susan for making The Haven the treasure that it is and for sharing it with the rest of us.

My wife and I were looking for a place to stay for 2 nights in August. We were fortunate to find Haven By The Sea on the internet. There are not enough words to describe how wonderful our time spent at this B & B was. The Jarvis' could not have been more accommodating. When we arrived they new who we were before we introduced ourselves and they went over and above to make our visit a wonderful, relaxing and pampered experience. We look forward to a longer stay next time.

This was my fourth stay at "Haven By the Sea" and it just get's better every time! My sister-in-law and I have such a pleasant time there. Our room is always immaculate and cozy. Susan makes the most delicious breakfast anyone could ever want. And John always greats us with open arms. We truly feel like we are 'home" when we stay with them. Whether we need reservations for dinner or the theatre, they will make them for us or they will call to make sure a restaurant is still serving. One of my favorite things about staying at "Haven By the Sea" is I always meet the nicest people who are also staying there. We meet on Friday evening usually and by Sunday at breakfast we are all old friends. You know with the economy this year the way it is, we probably could have stayed somewhere else for a "cheaper" room, but we could not give up all that we have come to love at "Haven."

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 on the deck overlooking the bay is about as good as it gets! Spending a few days with John & Sue will make you forget all the things that annoy you back home!

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 & breakfast home, was very comfortable. Being less than a block from Wells Beach was another terrific asset.
