Nancy and Danny were wonderful hosts! They took over managing this well-renovated B&B this year and have put a lot of sweat into giving us a great experience. The building is older which adds to the charm. You'll quickly appreciate the history of the place and forgive the boards from creaking. The highlight would have to be the back deck... More

Wonderful! Spacious converted church, each room decorated beautifully. There are several common areas, and so no matter which room you choose, all guests have access to the front parlor, the library/game room, and the large, high-ceilinged space that was once the church altar area, as well as the outdoor patio on which guests gather to watch the glorious sunsets. There... More

We spent 3 perfect days at the Haven By the Sea for our 10th Anniversary. Nancy and Dan were wonderful hosts. Room 7 was very roomy and clean. Different delicious breakfast every morning and happy hour on the back deck watching the sun set over the marsh was a delight. Short walk to a nice quiet beach. Couldn't have asked... More

Enjoyed our stay at the Haven by the Sea. It was a nice classy place to stay for my 50th Birthday! The Inn keepers, Nancy and Dan, were friendly & delightful. All the staff was kind and courteous. The location was perfect and the beach was a minimal walk & was great! The tides didn't cooperate for our timing but... More

We spent 4 lovely nights at Haven By the Sea to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary. Delightful, relaxed, comfortable, clean, charming - all applicable adjectives. Not the typical Victorian-like large house B&B that we're used to going to in that it is a converted church - but similar in all the important aspects. We stayed in #9 - a good... More

Dan and Nancy are such great hosts! Our first B & B experience - they have set the bar high should we try another! Conversion of a church to 9 units was the draw for us - seeking a unique experience, not just a place to sleep. Marsh and sea views, delicious breakfasts (presented in courses), room diversity, and dialogue... More

We had a great visit to the southern Maine coast and spent two nights at this B and B. We stayed in suite 8 which was large, roomy, and had a private entrance and terrace with a view to the sea. The location is great, a block from the beach so no hassle with driving, parking, etc. The beach was... More

So pretty. Very clean. Super friendly. Excellent location. REALLY excellent location! Short walking distance to the beach, shops and restaurants. Cute little neighborhood. Breakfast on the back deck was wonderful. Our room and the common areas were well decorated and kept. Hosts made great dining recommendations and made us feel welcomed. Definitely coming back.

Rooms are clean, comfortable and attractive. Very relaxing feel to it which is what we were looking for. The new Owner could not have been more welcoming and helpful. Great gift from ur kids and we will definitely return. We wish the new Owner much success.
