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

My husband and I enjoyed a delightful stay at Little Gnesta B & B. Our room, the Are, was spacious, light and cheery with a tranquil Swedish decor. Not only was the bed was very comfortable, but there were individual reading lights on each side. Swedish ambiance carried over to the roomy Scandinavian bathroom. Breakfast continued the Swedish experience:coffee, juice,... More

Ruth is warm and welcoming, making a group of friends feel like part of the family. We enjoyed poking around Newport, and discovering old and new connections. Rooms are comfortable, nicely furnished, very clean. Breakfast was delightful, something for everyone and all high quality. Great coffee! We hope to return!

I stayed at this Bed and Breakfast while onsite for a client, and I'm so glad I did. Ruth (and Phillip) were gracious and I felt right at home. Everything was simple. The food, all grown locally or made by hand, was perfect. I will definitely be back, this time for pleasure not work. Ruth was also on the winning... More

This B&B was just what we needed during a long weekend of winter sport in the invigorating cold of northern Vermont. We enjoyed returning to a clean, bright, and cheery room with a comfortable bed and adjustable heat. It was just the thing we needed after a day of outdoor skating and swimming in the great outdoors - yes swimming,... More

Entering through the cozy library and passing through the sun-soaked dining room we arrived for a long weekend in Ãre. We were in the NEK for other social and personal events but Little Gnesta soon became an event itself - just stunning.

What a wonderful B+B in Newport VT. A hidden treasure. The owner/host Ruth was delightful. Her breakfast that include fresh cheese, bread, yogurt and homemade granola were perfect in the morning. The bed were comfortable and the rooms each have its own zoned heat. Clean, nicely decorated home and a real find in the northern territory of VT. Perfect location... More
