We had a great experience here. The rooms were large, very comfortable, and extremely clean. Ruth made us feel very welcome, and gave us several recommendations for dinner. It's just a short walk to the center of town and a beautiful lake. I would definitely stay here again.

Little Gnesta is a lovely B & B. It's tastefully decorated and warm. Ruth was very welcoming and friendly. I will return when I'm in Newport. I am recommending it as a destination to my friends. Breakfast included local yogurt and Ruth's homemade granola, local eggs and 2 Vermont cheeses, 2 kinds of meat, locally baked breads with fresh jams... More

I'm so happy you enjoyed your stay at Little Gnesta and had a chance to cross the border for a tour around the lake. Lake Memphremagog, as you discovered, is truly beautiful and there's a different experience for travelers when they venture across the border. I'll look forward to seeing you again soon! More

Ruth was great - was flexible with check in (due to extenuating circumstances on my part), and the room I had reserved was very comfy. Although I stayed in a house with other guests, I never felt that I didn't have my own space and was never intruded upon. The breakfast was amazing, and Ruth was a great hostess.

We stayed at little Gnesta for two nights as a part of our road trip around New England and Canada and we had a very nice experience. When we arrived Ruth greeted us with an upgrade to a larger (huge) room, and gave us some great tips on restaurants in Newport which all turned out to be excellent. I'm Swedish... More

I spent one night at the Little Gnesta on long drive up to Quebec City and wish I could have stayed longer. Ruth is incredibly welcoming and kind -- I felt right at home during my visit. The home is incredibly clean and adorned with beautiful photos of her family :). Definitely a home away from home. Thank you, Ruth!... More

My wife and I spent three nights at the little Gnesta. Ruth is a great host. Her BnB is super clean. It feels like a house right out of Scandinavia. The beds are very comfortable, and we loved the breakfast. Breakfast is very European. She makes her own granola, and great coffee. The location is perfect for waking to down... More

The Little Gnesta was exactly as described. It was clean, bright, and quiet. Ruth is welcoming and friendly and we enjoyed our conversations with her over a delicious, locally sourced European style breakfast. She was very accommodating given our arrival was hard to pin down to a "specific time as per her policy"; we were glad of that given one... More

Ruth is a fabulous hostess. She goes out of her way to make sure you enjoy your stay with her. The home is spotlessly clean plus all the furnishings are carefully placed to instill a feeling of warmth and comfort. Her color palette reflect a feeling of serenity and calmness in the house.

My husband and I only stayed one night here, but we wish we could have stayed longer! The inn is sweetly decorated and very comfortable without being fussy. We stayed in the Umea room, which I'd recommend for anyone wanting to sleep in because it's on the second floor and away from the breakfast area (the other two queen bed... More
