We hesitate to let folks know about this gem of a place. with just three rooms available, all of which have a distinct wonderful personality, we don't want to be shut out from getting a reservation We have been here several times and every time it has been perfect. Our room had a gas fireplace, very comfortable chairs and beds... More

My husband, Mother and I travel to Fitchburg once or twice a year to visit our son at FSU. We always stay at Howarth, it really is like a visit with relatives. We feel very at home. The food is outstanding, the house is warm and amazing and we LOVE the fire room. Brian and Linda could not be better... More

I would absolutely stay here again. We arrived late after a long day of travel and were greeted by the owner who gave us a tour of their lovely home. Homemade cookies and tea were available, and tea was also provided in our room. The room itself had a bedroom nearly the same size with an incredible soaking, jacuzzi tub.... More

I'm not always a fan of B&Bs. The plumbing can be funky, the beds can be old, and I feel like I'm staying in a stranger's house. None of that was an issue here. The rooms are extremely comfortable, and each has its own, beautiful and freshly updated bathroom. The common areas feel welcoming. The house and all the rooms... More

We recently had the good fortune of spending a lovely autumn weekend at Howarth House. What a charming B & B located in the wooded hills above Fitchburg Mass! Linda and Brian Belliveau were perfect hosts at their beautifully decorated inn. The grounds and home are immaculately decorated and maintained, with attention to every possible detail. The common areas are... More

We enjoy bed & breakfast & were lucky to choose Howarth's for our biking trip accommodations. Linda & Brian made us feel welcome from the start. Their B & B is among the best we've seen & with a swimming pool & garden views it would be fabulous during summer. The house circa 1911 is well preserved & the decor... More

"Beautiful in a dramatic and eye-catching way", the Howarth House B&B fits the definition of spectacular! Looking for a place to stay in the Fitchburg area to visit family, finding the B&B's website & reviews, at first, to me, it seemed too good to be true. As I would be traveling alone, I had questions. Before deciding to stay, communicating... More

I'm sure I will never be more impressed with another B&B in my life. My room was lovely, the grounds and house are gorgeous and Linda and Brian were definitely the hosts with the most. 100% recommend to anyone any time. Thank you!!

What a wonderful stay we had! The room was cute, the hosts were so helpful, breakfast was amazing and the grounds are unbelievable! Easy to get to and feels so secluded. Brian and Linda made the stay so special and we will for sure be back!

The only reason I rated the Howarth House 5 STARS is because there isn’t any higher rating! The house is owned and run by Linda and Brian Belliveau. It’s a historic mansion situated on a hill in Fitchburg nestled in a beautiful lush setting. During our visit, both Brian and Linda did everything in their power to make sure that... More
