We stayed at Howarth House for the 3rd year in a row while visiting family in Fitchburg for 9 days. We have now enjoyed each of the 3 guest rooms. All are spacious and beautifully decorated. Once again, the Belliveau’s made us feel like old friends. Breakfast on the porch or outside on the patio overlooking a gorgeous landscape was... More

I stayed here with my sister and my 15-month-old twins for a weekend for a family function in the area and Brian and Linda were so accommodating. We brought our own pack n' plays that easily fit in the room. The breakfast was delicious and Linda even gave us a ziplock to take extra banana bread with us for the... More

Stayed here for three nights while on a trip through USA looking up old friends. This B&B is the best ever. The rooms are beautifully decorated and very clean. The hosts were extremely welcoming and unlike some B&Bs, where you feel a bit of a nuisance if you want to hang around all day ( which is why we usually... More

Fantastic service, excellent food a terrific place to go and escape the chaotic pace of everyday life. Brian and Linda are the best, they do all they can to make your stay relaxing and enjoyable. The out of the way location only adds to the feeling that you are some place very special. Enjoy .

This was our first stay here. From the moment you walk in Brian and Linda make you feel right at home. The grounds are beautiful. Several places to sit and relax and enjoy the peaceful atmosphere. We stayed in the north room, the double shower with heated floors was awesome!!! Breakfast was perfect, way too much for either of us... More

There is absolutely nothing to criticize about Howarth House. It is a beautiful property, spacious, elegant, charming, peaceful, very well maintained, super clean, the beds very comfortable and there are lots of little extras like remote controlled fireplace, beautifully renovated bathrooms, sun room to enjoy breakfast, a billiard room adjacent to the house to spend an evening playing games and...

This was a wonderful break from big cities and chain hotels. The home sits on a nicely maintained property, and is welcoming when driving up. There are three bedrooms, and a very nice common area with porches, open spaces, and comfortable seating. I was in the North Bedroom, which is comfortable and includes a fireplace, has several windows, and the... More

My beau and I only stayed one night but we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. It's a beautiful house, yard, space etc very close to the downtown and Brian and Linda are the king and queen of hospitality; not to mention I'm quite envious of their baking and cooking skills. Be sure to check out Brian's pool hall/game room for a... More

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
