“Great way to start the new year”
Reviewed 5 January 2012

Wonderful time at Haven By The Sea's New Years Eve gala celebration. Didn't think we could dance that much and for so long. The food, fantastic. Our suite was lovely and spacious. John and Susan made our stay very special. We're looking forward to returning to the inn in the spring.

Room Tip: The suite has a tub with jets that fits two. Very nice.

Stayed at Haven for our New Year's Eve celebration. Innkeepers provided us with a fabulous weekend, and a wonderful memory. Not a detail was missed, they treated us like royalty!

We recently stayed with John & Susan this past new years weekend. It was a wonderful time.... They are excellent hostesses and make your stay comfortable and worthwhile. There's always a fresh breakfast ready for you in the morning and every room is decorated to a "T". The whole inn has a unique charm that is hard to find anywhere else.

Have been going to Haven by the Sea for many years. Each time is a consistent, excellent experience. This past New Year's Eve weekend was no exception. John and Susan always go an extra mile for their guests. Excellent service, 5-star quality of rooms, common areas and always a cheerful, happy response to any request. This B&B should be on your list to visit if you are in the area.

My husband and I returned to Haven by the Sea for the New Year's Eve package,...and I am so glad that we did!! What a fantastic experience! We have always enjoyed our visits to Haven by the Sea (we have stayed twice before) but this was over the top. John and Susan are such gracious hosts, making us feel immediately at home and relaxed. The New Year's Eve party was a blast, with impeccable detail spent on the delicious food and entertainment! A beautiful inn, in a gorgeous setting with 2 lovely innkeepers....who could ask for anything more!!

Our return visit to Haven By the Sea was every bit as fabulous as our first. While it was lovely before, John and Susan have updated and renovated with impeccable taste and high quality craftsmanship. The place is gorgeous, and the location wonderful, but it is the hospitality that makes Haven truly stand out. The hosts are incredibly welcoming and friendly, happy to recommend restaurants or sights, and great facilitators of relaxed fun gatherings, whether for drinks and jokes or coffee and delicious breakfast. Best B and B, ever, anywhere!

Room Tip: Just go on the website and take a look. They are all quiet and lovely.

Staying with John & Susan is a step in the right direction - Haven by the Sea is an old church, lovely restored with a big sitting hall and a cosy library where you can enjoy a book, chat with other guests, and not to forget, ha a glass of Sherry or Port wine or Brandy on the house. You use it as your home, and your room is actually your bedroom.
In the breakfast room is a small bar -TEMPTATION- very well equipped (after an hour or so) the bar maybe should be renamed -CONFESSION-... The beach is a stone throw away, and Kennebunkport is a short drive to the North.
