I've been meaning to write this review for quite awhile. My family is Swedish, so I was randomly searching for restaurants nearby that might serve Scandinavian-style food when I came across the Little Gnesta website. Imagine my surprise to find an entire B&B devoted to Swedish style, simplicity and comfort less than 2 hours from my house. My wife and... More

I travel for work and stay in hotels usually, but I stayed here for a work trip. And it was one of my favorite trips! The owner, Ruth, was so friendly and welcoming. She would suggest excellent local restaurants (which were all within a couple minutes' walking distance). Every morning she had a spread of local & delicious cheeses, meats,... More

Ruth takes as great care of her guests as she does her home. Centrally located, but just off the main st in Newport, Ruth knows about everything going on in town. Stayed there to ski Jay peak and it was only about a 20 min ride.Would stay again or recommend to others

My host, Ruth, was very welcoming and full of knowledge of the area and the state. My room was perfect, very comfortable and breakfast was a treat - local cheeses, yoghurt and breads. Walking distance to the downtown restaurants and very quite location. I would consider this in the future as a base for cycling trips and skiing.

Ruth runs a great B&B in the heart of Newport, VT. The rooms are immaculate, the place is spotlessly clean, and her hospitality is wonderful. Each of the 4 rooms has a charming Swiss quality, many with authentic furniture and fittings. The entire B&B is outfitted with the highest quality fixtures, furniture and floors--and believe me when i say it... More

Title says it all. Stayed at Little Gnesta with family in December for a long weekend at Jay. Our rooms and the common area were immaculately clean and Ruth was a gracious host. Breakfast before hitting the slopes was a highlight. Noodle (our cockapoo) had a blast with Phil too!

My partner and I recently visited Newport and stayed at the Little Gnesta. Our trip was delightful. Ruth, our host, and her little buddy Phil (a pooch) were very welcoming and accommodating. Ruth has a tremendous amount of information on activities in and around Newport. Our room, the Are, was large and bright with a ton of open space. The... More

I stayed at Little Gnesta with two friends for our skiing trip to Jay Peak. The host, Ruth was welcoming and gave us good suggestions of local restaurants. Our room was clean and cozy. It really reminded me of my home in Finland where we keep the bedclothes hygienic and where the floors stay clean, mostly because you'll take your... More

First, the proprietor Ruth is great to talk to and is so knowledgeable about the surrounding area that you will never have a lack of things to do. She also knows a lot about Sweden and the surrounding Scandinavian countries, and about traveling in general. The B&B is beautifully yet simply furnished and breakfast is traditionally Scandinavian. I must also... More
