What a wonderful place! Our room was clean, spacious and nicely decorated and the price was more than fair. Ginny (one of the owners) was also one of the warmest and friendliest people that we met on our entire trip And as so many other people have said, the breakfast was phenomenal. Ginny made us fresh blueberry muffins, raspberry thumbprints,... More

Marvelous place. We stayed four days and were so pleased. Spacious room with nice balcony and chairs overlooking beautiful grounds. The breakfasts are really more special than we can describe. Trust us, they are superb! And, served with such grace. Thankfully, this unique place is thriving. The online picture doesn't really do it justice. You will be so happy when... More

This is the third time we have stayed at the Howard House Lodge B&B. The previous two times have been delightful and this time was no different. What separates this B&B from others that we have stayed at are the married couple that own the B&B, the wonderful breakfasts that they create, and how reasonably priced our stays have been.... More

Five of us (all adults) stayed in three separate rooms at the beginning of the tourist season and happened to be the only guests that night. Ginny (this is the correct spelling, based on an email from her) was extraordinarily thoughtful and helpful in all respects. I agree with the descriptions offered by the previous reviewers: Howard Lodge B& B... More

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

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Centrally located in the mid-coast region of Maine. Only a mile from downtown Boothbay Harbor. Far enough out of town to be away from the hustle and bustle, but close enough to hear the fog horns on a foggy night. Conveniently located to all local landmarks and tourist attractions. Just a little over a mile to Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens. Rooms and decks are completely non-smoking to ensure the comfort of our guests. Warm, cozy, and impeccably clean. Delicious homemade breakfast prepared fresh for you every day, with local ingredients whenever possible. Beautifully landscaped. No smoking, no pets. Family owned and operated for 37 years. ... more   less
