A friend and I have traveled throughout Vermont for a long weekend each year staying at a B and B, and exploring the area via road cycling. Little Gnesta was the perfect place to base our NE Kingdom adventure. Ruth is incredibly friendly, and made us feel really welcome. The inn is immaculate, light filled, and with excellent attention to... More

We stayed for two nights in mid-July and found LG, and Ruth and Philip, charming. Clean, comfortable, quiet, with a great breakfast with excellen coffee both days. We are natives of Newport, now living in Ontario, and certainly plan on a return visit. Thanks for a delightful stay, Ruth.

In July, 2014, my friend and I stayed here for our 2 night road trip to Bread and Puppet theatre in Glover and we had the most wonderful experience. Thank you to Ruth for opening her home up for us. I have never felt more welcome in a Bed and Breakfast than I did here. The location was perfect for... More

In July, 2014, my wife and I had a delightful three-night stay at Little Gnesta B & B in Newport, VT. Ruth Sproule's home is spotlessly clean, with a spacious, airy, Swedish-style decor. Her buffet breakfasts, engaging conversation, and recommendations of local shops and restaurants all enhanced our visit. The Are room was air-conditioned, with two Scandanavian-style chairs so comfortable... More

My husband and I recently stayed at Little Gnesta for a couples getaway. It was incredibly restful being there. Highlights: simple, uncluttered, beautiful decor (something impossible to maintain at our own residence with two toddlers), Ruth's breakfasts, and the fact that we were within walking distance of downtown restaurants and the lake. We parked our car on Friday afternoon and... More

My partner and I serendipitously found ourselves at Ruth's doorstep on a Thursday afternoon in July (2014). If the enchanting exterior of Little Gnesta was any gauge of the delights we'd find behind that front door, we would have visited this establishment MUCH sooner! Our room (Umea) is on the 2nd floor, with many windows. It is also very spacious,... More

We were on a Motorcycle trip through NY, Southern Quebec and Vermont and pulled into Newport at 5PM with no reservation and no idea of "the lay of the land" and asked a restaurant owner about potential Hotels etc. in the area. After checking out 2, and very disappointed, we rode by the Little Gnesta B&B and jumped at the... More

We had a fabulous stay, it was even better than expected and the service that Ruth provided was simply fabulous! From the initial greetings and restaurant recommendations to the breakfast in the morning - extremely friendly and professional. Thanks again Ruth! :)

The owner, Ruth, was lovely! My son & I stayed overnight on our way from Boston to Quebec, Canada. Location is close to Canadian border. Walk to downtown Newport. Beautifully furnished and lovely breakfast. Ruth e-mailed and inquired about my trip to Quebec after our departure!
