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.

My family and I rented out all 3 rooms Howarth House has to offer on the weekend of our wedding. We were able to all stay together, as they were all in from out-of-state. It was so relaxing to have the entire weekend together in a homey environment, rather than a hotel. The food was fantastic, and Brian and Linda...
