We've stayed at the Howarth House several times while our daughter has been enrolled at Fitchburg State, most recently for 2017 commencement weekend. Brian and Linda are wonderful hosts-- even arranging dinner reservations for our family at The Fay Club. All the rooms are spacious and comfortable with lovely baths, and the outdoor entertaining area is perfect for afternoon cocktails....

Stayed here for four nights during a gorgeous spring weekend. The house could not be more beautiful and comfortable. The breakfast could not be more fantastic. And the hosts could not be more welcoming and charming. I highly recommend this B&B.

Brian and Linda were fantastic hosts with a beautiful home away from home. The living quarters are extremely clean, well kept, and very quiet. Sitting around the living area at night socializing was one of the highlights of our evening.

Boyfriend and I went away for the weekend and Brian and Linda welcomed us into their home as friends. The house is absolutely beautiful. I like that we all had keys to our own rooms, it felt like we were at a hotel or something, and that we could fill out a breakfast order form. The cookies on the dining...

I've booked my family to stay here for the 2nd time because I trust the proprietors, location and service. The owners are the kindest of people, really focused on making the best experience possible for their guests. The proximity to Fitchburg State University is such a plus. If you catch a weekend when a speaker, presenter or performer is coming,...

Preparing to attend a reunion that would bring us back to the area, we decided to see if there were any bed and breakfasts nearby. When we discovered the Howarth House, little did we realize it would become the highlight of the entire trip! Linda and Brian are superb hosts that truly welcome their guests as family.
