My wife found the Little Gnesta on the Internet. She’s part Swedish and the elegant simplicity of the décor appealed to her on an aesthetic if not genetic level. Frankly, we were a little uneasy about the whole bed and breakfast idea, being unsure of the merits of having to make conversation with strangers first thing in the morning. But... More

Our room, Lulea, was very comfortable, nicely decorated, and clean, as was the bathroom. Very nice to have a light, healthy breakfast for a change! Ruth was a gracious and friendly host. She shared some very useful tips for things to do, also with bad weather (go see the Bread & Puppet theatre museum nearby! It was nice to talk... More

We stayed Oct 10,11,12 in the Lulea room and like all the other reviews we found Ruth to be a very welcoming and informative host. We totally enjoyed our stay. Our room was very private, filled with light, exceptionally clean, with enough room that we were not overwhelmed by all the suitcases we had with us. We were in town... More

If you want to have a taste of what a European pension is like, make a reservation at Little Gnesta. The décor, food and hospitality are reminiscent of a small European guesthouse. Everything is super clean and neat. Location is superb. You can walk to just about anywhere in the compact town of Newport. My husband and I stayed in... More

The owner works very hard at making sure her guests are comfortable, and she was very friendly and down to earth. Very soft swedish bed, private bathroom with our room and views of old historic homes. Very well decorated and tranquil feel. The owner renovated the B&B herself. Excellent assortment of local cheese, jams, and bread, as well as granola... More

Charming home, clean rooms. Very comfortable bed. We woke up to a delightful and elegant breakfast with interesting cheeses and jams, homemade granola. Ruth was lovely to chat you and very knowledgable of the area. We had fun downtown. Perfect location to explore the Newport area, down the hill from St Mary Star of the Sea.

My husband and I recently stayed in the Lulea room at Little Gnesta while in Vermont for a wedding. Ruth, the owner, was a wonderful hostess and super helpful when planning our trip. As we were traveling from many states away she provided great information regarding airport options, routes, things to do, etc. The room was very clean and cozy,... More
