FIVE STARS! The Howarth House Bed & Breakfast exceeded all of our expectations. This establishment is professionally, yet graciously, operated by Linda and Brian Belliveau. They were most welcoming, were extremely attentive to detail, and clearly walked the extra mile to make our stay as pleasant as possible. The B&B has three rooms in a charming house. Guests basically can...

Howarth House B&B is a beautiful property just a block from the campus of Fitchburg State University and is a very close walk from downtown. We stayed 2 nights in the East Guest Room (there are 3 rooms), a very comfortable, spacious, fully-equipped master suite. Breakfasts were ordered the night before and were excellent; the choices of breakfast items were...

Linda and Brian were incredible hosts, cooks, and conservationists. My fiance and I stayed in the East Room during my mothers wedding. We had a great stay in a beautifully decorated room. The breakfast of a perfect omelette along with french toast was delightful and cooked to perfection. Sweetest people in the most beautiful house for a wonderful stay. We...

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.

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.

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...
