Little Gnesta is a beautiful and elegantly simple home that is very welcoming and comfortable. It's a short walk to downtown and the lake. Ruth, the hostess, is a kind and interesting host. A great way to visit Newport!

Excellent two night stay. Super clean, great bed, dog friendly, nice host. Would go back. Newport is beautiful this time of year and Ruth had great ideas for road trip into Canada. Check out the lavender farm in Fitch Bay!
