Located close to the train to Boston, Mount Wachusett and Fitchburg State College, the Howarth House offers incredible amenities in a beautiful setting. Jetted tubs or a two person shower in modern private baths w/ oversize Turkish towels will soothe and help to unwind. Luxurious sheets and comfortable queen size beds await a tired body. The B&B and grounds offer several options for dining and relaxing. A lovely glassed porch, an open covered deck or a stone patio and fire pit for breakfast or a peaceful spot to rest to name a few. A game of Pool in the "Fire Room" with its collection of antiques and firefighting memorabilia provide an interesting place to relax by the fireplace. If you love the warmth and glow of your own private fire placed bedroom, the North room is for you. Check out the breakfast menu and you'll see why we say everyone "eventually has to leave, but you won't leave hungry". To be clear, the B&B is non smoking, but you are welcome to enjoy a cigar out in the "Fire Room", a separate building with my firefighting memorabilia or outside on the grounds. Cheers... Linda and Brian

Great B & B. A really nice place to go for a quiet, restful retreat. Room was very nice, very friendly hosts and the breakfast was fantastic! Highly recommended!

We visit family every summer in Fitchburg, and are very happy to have spent the last few visits staying at Brian and Linda's B&B. The rooms are lovely and comfortable, the breakfasts outstanding, and the sitting areas so welcoming. While we enjoyed reading on the covered porch, our teenagers could play in the pool. My husband also stayed there when in the area on a business trip this past spring. We look forward to our stay at Howarth House as much as visiting family every year!

I needed a place for my parents to stay while visiting. Their usual hotel was booked to the limit. I remembered hearing about Howard House and decided to stop by and check it out, since my mother is somewhat disabled. Linda was kind enough to show me the rooms so that I could determine if they were accessable for my mom. Everything was cozy and clean. My parents greatly enjoyed their stay...the surroundng peaceful grounds, the quiet room, great food...and mostly Linda and Brian, who did everything possible to make things easy for them. My dad raved about the 'really nice B&B' that we fond. Unfortunately for the local hotel, they have lost my parents as usual guests. They will be staying at Howarth House on future visits. All thumb up!!!

My wife and I stayed for an evening this spring while visiting grandchildren, Brian and Linda were most accommodating and pleasant (as were the room and the grounds). We've BnB'd from Quebec to Hawaii and rank Howarth House with the best - we will stay here again.

We had a very relaxing evening with our friends at the inn.We had asked in advanced about having an evening around the fireplace and our request was graciously granted. Linda and Brian are excellent hosts and their focus was on making all guests welcome and comfortable. Great conversation included!

Our son plays for Fitchburg State University, we travel in from Kansas City to visit him. We found Howarth and it was a blessing. It is mins from the campus and the Wallace Civic Center, the home is warm and welcoming. We felt completed at home. The fire room is amazing and breakfast was outstanding. This will be our home away from home for the next 4 years. If you are visiting a loved one at FSU, this should be your home as well.

Linda and Brian Belliveau are delightful hosts; from the moment of my late arrival on a foggy, snowy night I felt welcomed and completely at home. The house itself is a feast for the eyes and looks out on loveliness in every direction, especially from the sunlit breakfast room. Atmosphere is quiet, casual, elegant; decked out for an old-fashioned Christmas, with a choice of fine music, or none, fire in the fireplace, a good book and magnificent Tucker wearing a holly wreath, my week went by too quickly. If Currier and Ives were to serve scrumptious breakfasts and unlimited excellent coffee, it would be here at Howarth House.

We highly recommend Howarth House. We spent a week and didn't want to leave. The house is very elegant and the property breathtaking. Linda and Brian are very warm and welcoming, as is Tucker their "fur baby". Our best experience ever at a B&B.

What a wonderful experience! Brian and Linda are the perfect innkeepers, food was excellent; rooms are comfortable, very clean and beautifully decorated; the whole experience was top shelf. We're now looking for a way to make it back to this wonderful B&B ... hopefully soon.
