I loved staying at the Howarth House Bed & Breakfast. Brian and Linda were so nice and accommodating. We loved spending time in the pool and breakfast was fantastic. Just staying there felt so relaxing. I would definitely go back again!

Brian and Linda are friendly and attentive hosts (and excellent cooks!) who know how to leave you your space. The bed and breakfast is very elegant but also cozy (and the south bedroom has an en-suite bathroom with heated floors and a jet tub!). And their dog Sparky is great -- low key and affectionate.

I highly recommend The Howarth House Bed & Breakfast. I am a current graduate student at Fitchburg and I travel almost two hours for my weekend classes on campus. I am so grateful for such a wonderful place to stay. The B&B is very close to campus. The room is beautiful, the people are kind, and they serve a delicious breakfast! I am looking forward to my future stays.

The Howarth House is one of the best B&Bs I've ever stayed at. Beautiful, comfortable, relaxing. Brian and Linda and Sparky are gracious hosts. The afternoon cookies and morning breakfast were delicious and plentiful. We are definitely returning. Thank you for your hospitality.

We've stayed at many B&Bs through the years. Howarth House is at the top. A stunning property. The grounds are casualy elegant. The innkeeper friendly, helpful, intersting without being *too much*. The house is one of a kind. A comfortable old beauty. The 3 rooms are just delightful. Each one with its own character. We stayed in the North Room & hope to have a chance to stay in all of them!! Brian made a fire in thre garden firepit (former fire cheif, he can make a fire) I'd like to copy his corner terrace pit. We were greeted in AM with a beautiful fire in the living room. We wanted to linger there forever. We had breakfat on the side porch. As good a breakfat as we have ever had & artfully presented. The lovely resident dog was a joy as was the entire stay. Tis beauty of an Inn is worth the trip from anywhere. We loved it!!
