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...

Fantastic service, excellent food a terrific place to go and escape the chaotic pace of everyday life. Brian and Linda are the best, they do all they can to make your stay relaxing and enjoyable. The out of the way location only adds to the feeling that you are some place very special. Enjoy .

This was our first stay here. From the moment you walk in Brian and Linda make you feel right at home. The grounds are beautiful. Several places to sit and relax and enjoy the peaceful atmosphere. We stayed in the north room, the double shower with heated floors was awesome!!! Breakfast was perfect, way too much for either of us...

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. Be sure to check out Brian's pool hall/game room for a...

We've stayed at Howarth House twice now and will be going back again. It is an oasis of peace, tranquility and breakfast to die for. The house is full of little touches that warm and invite you. The middle bedroom is unique in that the bathroom has a very modern hot tub-shower combo but the bedroom itself has a theme...

My wife and I stayed with Brian and his family back in October 14. This review has been on my 'to do' list for some time because it is worth saying something about.

My husband and I visited The Howarth House in 2012 and were fascinated with out stay. Therefore, we decided to go back, now with my parents, to spend New Year's Eve and receive the New Year, 2015.
