We stayed for two nights in July and had a wonderful stay. Rooms were clean and well kept, owners were amazingly nice and the breakfast is to die for. Ginny makes all homemade baked goods and a different and delicious egg dish each morning. Excellent coffee (they have their own blend made by a local roaster) and they graciously accommodated...

Pulling into the parking lot my wife and I were struck with the simple beauty and landscaping setup of the office and lodge building. The lodge sat on the side of hill surrounded by trees, outside balconies weld kept grounds and flowers. From the time I signed in with "Jean" who said I didn't have to pay now I felt... More

My husband and I have stayed here a few times over the last few years and we are never disappointed. The property is beautiful...lots of trees and flowers. Very quiet in the evening. The rooms are clean with comfortable beds. Breakfast is always wonderful...fruit, eggs, blueberry coffee cake or muffins, and more. Ginny and Jim, the owners, make this one... More

I've been travelling to Boothbay for almost 10 years now as a wedding photographer - and I SO wish I had found this before. Ginny and everyone at the lodge are so accommodating and genuinely helpful, warm, and happy to see us. The lodge itself is perfect too - great mix of classic lodge hotel and quaint/intimate bed and breakfast.... More

The Howard House B&B was recommended by friends, who we joined up with once there. We trusted our friends advice but when it really came down to it, we just wanted to stay where they were staying. What a fantastic overall experience this was! The setting is great, a five minute drive to the ocean yet you have deer in... More

We stayed at Howard House with friends for 5 days and the service and hospitality was wonderful. The rooms were clean and comfortable with the feeling of being at home. The owners went out of their way to make our visit enjoyable and relaxing. They took time to give us suggestions on things to see and do in the area... More

I first noticed how well kept the grounds were with lots of cared for flowers and several stonewalls. The lodge was surrounded by a thin forest of hardwood trees, yet the sun had no trouble weaving its way through the branches. Upon arrival our host offered us a key to check the room before we committed to staying, which was... More

We were looking for peace & beauty. We found them & much more. We stayed an extra night to have another wonderful breakfast & enjoy the inn away from the crowds but still close to the amazing foliage & coast line. We felt welcomed & pampered.

I loved this lodge!! I had a lovely room on the 2nd floor overlooking a meadow and deer came to feed in the evening. It was quiet, clean, cozy and comfy. Nice rocker or armchair to sit in with a reading lamp!! Good wifi connection and coffee maker in the room. As you will read....the breakfasts are out of this... More

What a delightful B and B this is! This was a return visit for me after some 15 years. The breakfasts were wonderful, and included properly made tea (I'm British, so this matters), home made baked goods, all freshly prepared and egg dishes that I wanted to take home with me. Ginny and Jim could not have done more for... More
