Agree with other 5-Stars, but more ...

5 on September 03, 2017

Avoiding repetition of other justifiable 5-star reviews, a bit more. Hospitality is outstanding -- but especially if staying more than one night, a guest will leave considering Tony and Eleanor new and good friends. They treat guests like family. Casablanca Room has special comforts -- ground floor, excellent lighting, large walk-in shower with seat, raised toilet, along with comfortable bed and rocker. The gardens are worth a morning stroll before or after breakfast. Yes, other reviews rate the food outstanding. Tony credits Eleanor as a "good cook," but she adds that Tony helps inspire new creations, and he is participant in preparation and presentation. To call them cooks is a disservice. They are culinary artisans. It's easy to see why Raven Haven is first choice among Mentone's B&Bs.


Great Getaway

Amazing place in the quiet country. Tony and Eleanor are super Inn keepers. The food was excellent. We have food allergies, lactose and gluten, and Eleanor prepared dishes just for us. The Inn is just a few minutes from Mentone which has excellent restaurants. A fantastic get away place for an anniversary, birthday, or just to relax for a few days. We plan to return soon.


Best all around.

We have stayed at several B&B and this one tops them all. Excellent hosts that really care for their tenants. Mr. Tony and Mrs. Eleanor are 2 of the nicest, loving, and most caring people we have ever met. Could not ask for a better experience. We will most certainly be staying for another visit.


Best B&B in town!

The best breakfast, & best B&B in the area... I loved that they shared advice & helped us plan our trip & made restaurant reservations when wanted.


Couples Getaway

We had a wonderful getaway weekend at the Raven Haven! The home is beautiful and Mrs. Eleanor's snacks and breakfast were absolutely delicious. Time with friends in this beautiful home was wonderful, but meeting and getting to know Mr. Tony and Mrs. Eleanor was priceless! We very much look forward to our next visit

Prairie Room

This was our first experience at a Bed and Breakfast, and Tony and Eleanor made it a very pleasant stay. Their food was delicious and the gardens were beautiful. We stayed in the Prairie Room, we loved it, it had so much character. We will be making a trip in the future to stay here again.


My new home away from home

5 on September 16, 2016

I cannot begin to say enough wonderful things about the Raven Haven Bed & breakfast and it's incredible owners Anthony & Eleanor Teverino. From the moment that I arrived I felt completely welcome and at home in a way that I cannot even describe. From the welcoming serenity and presence of the warm inviting home and décor, to the tranquility of the majestic surroundings, to the immediate acceptance of the precious couple that owns this amazing home, I knew from the moment that I walked in that I would not want to leave. I had the privilege of being the sole guest for the weekend and was still treated like an absolute princess. The breakfast that was prepared and served would most definitely rival any five-star restaurant, but the company made it all the more incredible and absolutely priceless. I would most definitely recommend this little slice of heaven to anyone and plan on going back myself as often as I can possibly make the trip. -Tracie Smith


Splendid stay!

A delightful Bed and Breakfast — beautiful decor, excellent breakfast (and dessert!), incredible lawn and gardens, and most congenial hosts.


Piece of Heaven on Earth

5 on July 06, 2016

Raven Haven far exceeded our expectations. We were looking for a quiet getaway and this was the perfect place. The grounds were impeccably maintained and gorgeous. Our room (Prairie Room) was decorated tastefully and rustic that went along perfectly with the theme. Tony and Eleanor were the most gracious of hosts and went out of their way to make us feel at home. I can't say enough about the breakfast the morning we left. In my 50 years on earth I can truly say this was the most delicious and creative meal I've ever had. She did some wonderful twists with eggs and amazing french toast. Everything was made completely from scratch right down to the jams we were served. This was a wonderful experience and we left completely rested and revitalized. I highly recommend Raven Haven to anyone wanting a lovely experience with peace and serenity. We will definitely be back but not soon enough for us. You will not be disappointed in the quaint B&B.
