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.

Ruth created a lovely place, where we instantly feel like home. I loved the room ans all the little attentions... The GREEN hotel certification is a plus-value that we really appreciated! We can't wait to go back during the summer time!

My wife and I wanted to get away. So we headed up to the Northeast Kingdom. Neither of us had ever traveled that far up north. We wanted a place to disconnect from the world and reconnect with each other. We are so thankful that we ended up here. It was perfect. Ruth was excellent! She was a very attentive... More

This is a review of the apartments that the owner Ruthie has recently opened alongside her across-the-road B&B in central Newport, VT. Ruthie has 4 apartments available, all of them fairly similar and in the same Swedish style has her B&B. We rented a 1BR apartment for our family. We had an extremely pleasant stay. The apartment is fairly spacious... More

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

She told us things to do and places to go to enjoy our 2 days in Newport. Her place is welcoming, it has everything you need and it is... 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
