This was our first time at Haven by the sea. It was also the first weekend for the new innkeepers. They are great! Looking at previous reviews, we believe the new owners Nancy and Dan will do very well to carry on the great traditions from previous owners. They have great ideas for making your experience here even better than...

This is our second trip to Haven By The Sea. Susan and John are great hosts and we enjoyed our stay. The food is always great as well as the company. Sad to see Susan and John moving on but we wish them well. This is one of the best B&B's that we've stayed at, always feels like home. I...

This wonderful B&B is my mother and my selfish indulgence. We have taken our vacations together there since the opening of this beautiful, charming place. John & Susan are like family, and our kind of people. Seeing them is like "coming home". They know absolutely how to make each guest feel so very special. Just a brief walk to the...

The Haven by the Sea is the best B&B around. Susan and John always make our stay memorable. Anyone can open a B&B. But what makes this B&B successful is the hospitality of the owners. Susan and John are more than "innkeepers"--they have become friends and family to all that visit. We love the gourmet breakfasts, the happy hour on...

What a lovely evening had by all at this beautiful Maine inn. Cocktails on the back porch overlooking the salt marsh as the sun set. Hors d'oeuvres followed by a very nice Italian dinner. This occasion allowed us to share laughter and conversation with friends, old and new. The inn was full that evening so there were many in attendance....

We visited this B&B with our daughter, son-in-law and their friends. John and Susan are incredible hosts with an awesome sense of humor. We were so entertained with John's friendly ribbing of us as we ventured out each day. The B&B is in an old church which was transformed into this amazing B&B through John and Susan's love, hard work...

Susan and John are wonderful hosts. They definitely pay attention to details to make your stay very enjoyable. They surprised us with the room we always wanted to stay in, but was always booked at the time we were there. It was amazing we have two beautiful rooms with our own patio. Our breakfasts were fantastic each morning of our...

We have been going to the Haven since the year after it opened, seventeen years ago. Since our first visit, we have never stayed in another Inn or B&B... The Haven is the best hands down and there's no comparison. The Haven By The Sea is an exceptional property within 100 yards of beautiful Wells Beach. From the minute you...

The best B&B inWells. We are repeat guests for a reason. John and Susan are exceptional at what they do. They are very welcoming and find time during the day to stop and talk to you and the other guests. Susan can impress with her first-rate breakfasts.

The location is perfect for beach, walking etc. We have never been to a place that could compare with the friendliness of John and Susan. They make you feel at home immediately. Susan's breakfasts are outstanding and with John serving what more could we ask. Also, love meeting so many interesting people. Bob and I loved the whole stay.
