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! I have stayed here on 2 occasions and have enjoyed the comfort, relaxation and hospitality that Howarth House is known 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

This is a beautiful, clean, comfortable B&B run by the two kindest, friendliest, and most accommodating B&B owners I have met. Our room was impeccable, well-appointed, quiet, and comfortable. The common areas are tastefully decorated and a pleasure to be in. The breakfast is the best cooked-to-order breakfast of any B&B, inn, hotel, or restaurant I have been to. While... More

My boyfriend and I spend the night at the Howarth house for one night, and one just won't do! We surely will be back again soon. Brian and Linda created a serene environment for a great nightly get away, as well as accommodating to any needs, including an excellent breakfast. Between the cozy and comfortable room, a fun room for... More

My husband and I are now regulars at the Howarth House when visiting family in the area. The rooms are beautiful and comfortable, the bathrooms luxurious with heated tile floors, and the breakfasts are decadent. Linda and Brian are gracious hosts as is Tucker the dog. I can't say enough about what a lovely retreat this is in the heart... More

My wife and I stayed at Howarth 2 nights over Thanksgiving. Linda and Brian are marvelous hosts: friendly and helpful. Their home is comfortable, attractive, and quiet. We especially enjoyed the fireplace and exquisite bathroom, far nicer than at our own home (ouch). While Howarth is located next to Fitchburg State, we were pleased with how peaceful and secluded the... More

I want to thank Brian and Linda for making our very first stay at a B&B an excellent experience. They were very accommodating. It was like visiting with old friends. The food was good, the room was great! My family and I can't wait to stay during the warmer months. Tucker is a very sweet dog too! Thank you again... More

Staid two nights. Very comfortable and quiet room. Brian and Linda made us feel very much at home. Delicious breakfasts. Couldn't have made a better choice. Our small sheltie also gives Howarth House 5 stars. We will be back.
