We've stayed at Howarth House twice now and will be going back again. It is an oasis of peace, tranquility and breakfast to die for. The house is full of little touches that warm and invite you. The middle bedroom is unique in that the bathroom has a very modern hot tub-shower combo but the bedroom itself has a theme... More

My wife and I stayed with Brian and his family back in October 14. This review has been on my 'to do' list for some time because it is worth saying something about. Howarth House is a lovely home, well cared for and shared with guests. Brian took charge of our arrival and our care and no problem was too... More

We visited Howarth House whilst visiting family in Fitchburg. What a beautiful house. It was extremely comfortable and this was made all the more so with the amazing hospitality of Brian and Linda. We loved every second of our stay and we will definitely go back. The breakfast was amazing!!

My husband and I visited The Howarth House in 2012 and were fascinated with out stay. Therefore, we decided to go back, now with my parents, to spend New Year's Eve and receive the New Year, 2015. Once again, our experience was amazing. My parents mentioned this has been their best mini-vacation ever!!! The B&B's details and decorations make you... More

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Howarth House! Brian and Linda were extremely accommodating and welcoming. The place was so clean! The food was absolutely delicious! We will definitely go back! The grounds were beautiful and we didn't want to leave. After breakfast we sat by the fire in the living room and just relaxed listening... More

My wife and I wanted a half-way point between Kennebunkport and Stockbridge to stay for a night so we chose Fitchburg. While the town itself is not that attractive, the neighborhood in which the Howarth House Bed & Breakfast is located is: leafy trees; large homes; and even some mansions that could compete with those in Newport just around the...

We had a really wonderful Columbus Day weekend stay at Howarth House. Friendly and relaxing, we had a great time and really appreciated Linda & Brian's great spirit, hospitality and generosity. Awesome, tasty breakfasts -perfect blueberry pancakes and omelets- to satisfy your eyes and appetite, and with a delightful view to the garden including entertainment provided by an array of...

We live right in Fitchburg, but we chose to stay at the Howarth House after reading all the reviews. We stayed in October for our 10th anniversary, and it was very convenient since we had to leave our two young kids with family for the night. It's hard to believe this property is even in the city, because the grounds... More

We stayed Labor Day Weekend. Myself and some other family members booked all three rooms. Our goal was to relax and spend some time together. Every thing was just perfect. HH is a little piece of paradise. Brian and Linda a perfect host.

My husband, son, and I had the great pleasure of staying at this wonderful bed and breakfast last weekend. We selected it for the excellent reviews. The reviews, however, only scratch the surface of the experience to be had here. Brian and Linda exude the type of hospitality you expect to find in your dream trip to Europe. They are... More
