We had a great stay at Little Gnesta. The room was very clean, with plenty of room for unpacking, a hair dryer, soap and shampoo, etc. Breakfast was indeed very Swedish - yogurt with homemade granola, meats and (extremely delicious) cheeses, lingonberry jam on local bakery breads, coffee, OJ, etc. It's in a great location - 5 min walk to...

Extremely east to make reservations and we were fortunate to be able to check in early. Our room, as all of the spaces, was exceptionally clean, bright and comfortable. We had a a very nice breakfast and fabulous coffee as well as a good variety of cheeses. A comfy sitting room drenched in light for reading or relaxing was a... More

My boyfriend and I were on our way back from Quebec City, Canada and needed a place to sleep for 1 night to break up the long drive. We found Little Gnesta and thought that $100/night for 1 Queen room w/private bath and a full breakfast could NOT be true. It was! Ruth is the kindest in keeper. She is... More

Last July my boyfriend and I stayed here for our Bread and Puppet excursion and loved it so much we had to come back! We stayed in a bigger room this year, the Luleå, which was perfect for us! It had a gorgeous oriental antique rug (which made my little vintage loving heart smile), a very comfortable bed and an... More

My boyfriend wanted to take me to Vermont for a trip down memory lane. We spent 2 nights in Little Gnesta B&B and we had a wonderful stay. Ruth is a gracious and wonderful hostess with a wealth of knowledge about the area. She recommended great places to eat (and to avoid, lol), as well as sights to see. Her... More

My wife and I were enamored of the eclectic historic exterior / modern interior. The windows overlooking the town were calming, and Ruth was a gracious host. The quirky downtown and lake are within easy walking distance. We enjoyed it very much!

My teen daughter and I stayed one night at Little Gnesta in early March. Ruth gave us a very warm reception upon our arrival and showed us where the breakfast room was prior to showing us our room. We stayed in the Övertorneå room with twin beds with the bathroom just a couple steps outside the door. Our room and... More

Enjoyed my visit and Ruth is very polite and made me feel very welcome. Comfortable beds. Very clean B&B. My onlt complaint at all is the breakfast isnt anything too fancy. But assume more food could be made on request. I will be back, Ruth!!!

I'm so glad to be able to talk about the breakfast at Little Gnesta B & B. What we serve is typical Swedish fare for the morning meal: meats and cheeses, breads, a selection of jams and butter, granola and yogurt, oatmeal, juice, coffee and tea. We don't serve a hot breakfast because that's not likely to be served to... More

The Little Gnesta was the perfect place for my wife and I during the United States Winter Swimming Championships on Lake Memphremagog in February. The accommodations were perfect, and Ruthie's hospitality was wonderful. The Swedish-inspired rooms were very clean, comfortable, and provided a relaxing place to rest up for our event.
