We wanted a unique B&B experience, as we traveled along th southern coast of Maine. My search brought us to Haven By the Sea, and we were so pleasantly surprised! This converted church has had so much attention to detail, and you become surrounded by charm, comfort, and a sense of warmth from the very beginning. Dan and Nancy were...

My husband and I have frequented the Haven a lot over the years. We recently booked a last minute stay for the weekend of April 1st and 2nd. We found it the same, calming "haven", where we found it easy to let go of the worries of the world and enjoy the excellent accommodations, area, and great company! Nancy and...

We booked a night to stay at the Haven by the Sea for my boyfriends birthday. I spoke with Danny multiple times prior to arriving and he was incredibly helpful. We arrived and were greeted by Danny and Nancy. They gave us a tour of the place and even upgraded our room :) such a treat!! It felt like home...

We recently returned for our fifth stay at Haven By The Sea. We knew that the inn had been sold and that there were new owners, but saw no reason to cancel our visit. While some things may not be the same, we would still be at the ocean with family. When we arrived the check in was impersonal, not...

I stayed at Haven by the Sea June 2016; quite a different experience from many previous visits over the past 12 + years when Sue and John were the proprietors. I wanted to send in a review after my June visit but did not feel that I could express my thoughts adequately. After just receiving an email from Haven (anniversary...

Thank you for taking the time to leave feedback regarding your visit in June in our amazing two bedroom apartment. I am very disappointed to read of your experience during your stay at Haven By The Sea B&B,Inn. I am a bit perplexed because I do not have record of your stay Tony and Linda. As you know, (and as...

The loss of attention to detail is very obvious. Cleanliness is not what it used to be. The owners have A LOT to learn about running a B and B. Nancy, in her past life was owner of a motel which is not the same. Example: Having a TV when you enter, is not part of a B and B!...

Thank you so much for this review. Its people like you that remind us that we are new owners and there is much room for improvement. I seriously doubt that we will ever fill the previous owners shoes after all, they owned it for 18 years and had many friends stay here year after year. Change is hard for people...

We had a great time. The owners personally welcomed us and showed us around. My 102 year old aunt was able to use Suit 5 which had only three steps, It was warmly decorated and very clean. Loved the homemade cookies. However, I thought for the price of the room, the breakfast could have been lovelier and could have used...

Nancy and Danny run a great B&B just outside Rachel Carson Park. The suite was clean and nicely appointed. Breakfast was good. They focus a lot on the details which really adds to the charm. It seems like there are little treasures hidden in every nook in the common areas so it's easy to overlook their attention to detail. We'd...

We spent two nights- 9/23-24. Our room was clean and comfortable.The main areas were stocked with interesting books, puzzles, furniture and appointments. The breakfast area overlooked green space and ocean estuary and lent itself to meeting other guests. Our hosts were very friendly and even made us special breakfasts to meet our allergic needs. They recommended two restaurants which we...
