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.

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...

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...

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...

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...

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.
