About Our Inn
Haven by the Sea: Inn-viting, Inn-chanting, Inn-spired
Haven By The Sea innkeepers Nancy Ezzo and Danny Petlon are living their dream, providing guests with an experience that is unrivaled in ambiance, accommodations, and service.
At Haven By The Sea, attention to detail is king. You can see this in our beautifully appointed common areas and guest rooms—and personal touches like the diverse selection of books throughout the Inn, digestifs in the parlor, and the lavish homemade breakfast served daily.
Of course, the star attraction is the Inn itself: a lovingly restored seaside church. In the twenties, it was the summer mission of St. Martha's Church in Kennebunkport. For three generations of summer residents, it was a place of refuge and celebration. Now guests come from around the world to enjoy its serenity, many returning again and again.
A Sublime Setting, Superb Service
Nancy and Danny have kept the church's original hardwood floors and even a church pew. Once again, it is a true haven, filled with stained glass windows, chandeliers, historically-painted rooms, and happy voices. While the Inn is elegant, the atmosphere is understated, homey, and comfortable.
At Haven By The Sea, Warm, Friendly, Impeccable Service Is Our Hallmark.
