Warm and gracious hospitality together with caring hosts who know how to cook a sumptuous breakfast not to me a mouth watering blueberry pie. A respite of tranquility and an oasis of warmth engendered by involved and committed proprietors, Brian and Linda. An excellent choice!

Gracious hosts, charming old house updated with all the amenities. The owners were flexible enough to accommodate us two, lost long islanders at the last minute. Better make a reservation though, as this B&B is a real find. Beautiful rooms, pool, porch, patio, grounds and the breakfast was delicious. Blueberry pancakes the breakfast specialty. Billiard room is meticulously decorated, honoring... More

My wife and I went for a short overnight stay at Howarth House on our way to New Hampshire. From the moment we drove up until the moment we left, we felt welcome, considered, and wonderfully taken care of. The grounds and decor are beautiful, and the feel of Howarth is a home, not just a bed and breakfast. From... More

Brian and Linda were so thoughtful and helpful, and offered us such warm hospitality. The breakfasts were delicious, and it was so relaxing just hanging out on the veranda, and... More

We're regulars at the Howarth House when we visit family in Central Massachusetts. We were reminded this past weekend of how lovely the Howarth House is in the summer. What a pleasure to look out from our room over a riot of flowers in window boxes to the beautifully landscaped pool area. We enjoyed breakfasts in the covered patio by... More

FIVE STARS! The Howarth House Bed & Breakfast exceeded all of our expectations. This establishment is professionally, yet graciously, operated by Linda and Brian Belliveau. They were most welcoming, were extremely attentive to detail, and clearly walked the extra mile to make our stay as pleasant as possible. The B&B has three rooms in a charming house. Guests basically can... More

Howarth House B&B is a beautiful property just a block from the campus of Fitchburg State University and is a very close walk from downtown. We stayed 2 nights in the East Guest Room (there are 3 rooms), a very comfortable, spacious, fully-equipped master suite. Breakfasts were ordered the night before and were excellent; the choices of breakfast items were... More

Linda and Brian were incredible hosts, cooks, and conservationists. My fiance and I stayed in the East Room during my mothers wedding. We had a great stay in a beautifully decorated room. The breakfast of a perfect omelette along with french toast was delightful and cooked to perfection. Sweetest people in the most beautiful house for a wonderful stay. We... More

We were in Fitchburg for a youth track meet with our son and Brian and Linda went over and beyond what they had to do to make our stay comfortable. The property is beautiful, the rooms are comfortable, and the food is delicious.
