We spent one night at Howarth´s house b&b. Great pool, great breakfast, great hosts and the house, room and surroundings are beautiful. The attention given to small details is remarkable. Thank you Brian and Linda. Well worth a 5 star hotel.

My wife and I stayed one night at this lovely Bed and Breakfast establishment. We were on a business trip, but felt like we were on a leisurely vacation. Linda, the owner, was a gracious lady. The room is large enough to be comfortable, the bathroom is spacious and fixtures are classy, and the breakfast was unforgettably delicious and generous... More

The Howarth B&B was a perfect fit for us traveling through. The ambiance of this place is outstanding. Brian & Linda welcomed us with extreme hospitality even though it was last minute :) Brian made us a delicious 'fireman's breakfast.' We would recommend Howarth B&B for any occasion!

The hosts at the Howarth House set the standard high for your stay at their quaint home. Very responsive via telephone and e-mail from the start of the booking process. When we arrived, Brian was very welcoming and made himself available for any help we might need. We rented the East Room and I wouldn't stay in any other room... More

Stayed at Howarth House for a week vacation. Linda and Brian are extremely welcoming. Breakfast was excellent and plenty of choices to choose from. I brought my two dogs with me and we enjoyed our morning walk with Linda and Tucker. There are plenty activities to do in the surrounding areas without driving very far. I am looking forward to...

My husband planned a birthday getaway for me that featured this beautiful B&B. Brian and Linda are ideal hosts: Brian is friendly and helpful and makes a delicious omelette, and Linda's artist's sensibility is infused in every detail of this lovingly, elegantly, and comfortably appointed home. The setting is also inviting - can't wait to come back when the gardens... More

My fiance and I needed a place to stay over Valentines Day weekend and we couldn't have asked for a more romantic and elegant place. We stayed in the East room, which had a huge hot tub. The owners were very nice and catered to all our needs from keeping our champagne cool to giving us recommendations for restaurants. Since... More

Very welcoming bed and breakfast with all of the amenities you could ask for!

This is a small establishment (only 3 rooms) but all are very nice and en-suite. All rooms are located on the second floor via staircase,... More
