We found this place and felt like we were home. My wife is gluten free and Jenny made her muffins each morning. The place is very comfortable, very clean, and hosts (Jenny and Jim) are outstanding. Howard Lodge was recommended by Chamber of Commerce. It was that and more. Jenny and Jim even made suggestions on what to see in... More

My girlfriend and I stayed here over the summer for a wedding and we loved it. First off, the breakfasts are great! The staff are very friendly and very helpful. I like the look of the rooms, it might not be for everybody, but the décor is in line with the Maine/Rustic feel of the place. And each room has... More

Jenny and her husband were very nice and their place was very comfortable. Breakfast was AMAZING! I am gluten free and dairy free, and she accommodated my diet restrictions deliciously! I still think about my special gluten free muffins and scones she made special for me daily. The grounds were well maintained and beautiful. The room was cozy and the... More

This past July we stayed at Howard House for the second summer in a row. The property is beautiful and quiet. The rooms are comfortable and so clean. We loved the comfy bed. There is a chair, rocking chair, desk, and bureau or wardrobe. There is free WiFi as well. No air conditioning but the rooms have a cooling ceiling... More

We've been staying at the Howard House Lodge for over 20 years. Ginny and Jim Farrin are wonderful hosts. The rooms are very clean, comfortable and cozy. Every room has rocking chairs, comfortable beds, and a nice balcony with 2 chairs and a table. It's a great place to sit and relax, read, have a snack and enjoy the bucolic... More

We have visited Booth Bay a dozen times over the last 25 years, and in recent years, always stay at Howard House. Even if it did not have such clean and comfortable rooms and a lovely quiet setting, we would not want to miss Ginny's wonderful breakfasts. Ginny and Jim are friendly, without being obtrusive and very knowledgeable about all... More

HHL lived up to all the stellar reviews and then some. Quiet setting with natural cool woods breezes (on some of the hottest days this year!) made for a terrific experience. If we ever get down to Boothbay again HHL is the place to stay!

The Howard House Lodge added so much to a road trip my friend and I went on in June. We came to Maine from Boston to see the puffins, and decided to stay at the Howard House Lodge based on it's great reviews. Each morning, my friend and I were given a delicious breakfast feast, and the owner/chef Ginny was... More

Spent four nights here and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. A wonderfully maintained lodge, wonderful hosts and an incredible breakfast that will keep you full until dinner time. On two of our mornings there we enjoyed breakfast outside but rain kept us inside the last two mornings. Each breakfast consisted of a wonderful fruit cup followed by a very tasty egg... More

Pleasant facility. More like a motel than a typical rooms- in-the-house bed and breakfast. Great breakfast with individually prepared fruit cup, a yummy egg dish, and home baked breads. We sat outside which was nice. Pleasant surroundings. We opened the room up at night to cool it down, but sleeping was fine. We chose for the location, since we wanted... More
