We stayed at Little Gnesta B&B for three nights. We (three girlfriends) were in Newport for a open-water swim event. My room & bathroom was immaculate, very comfortable, and relaxing. I enjoyed the Scandinavian atmosphere, and I slept so well. Ruth is a kind, hilarious, and helpful host. Her European breakfast was perfect and a great way to start the...

Ever so glad to find this little gem. Everything was perfect. This B&B is spotlessly, clean and bright. Located within easy walking distance to the local shops, restaurants and lake. There are great bike and walking trails. Little Gnesta is really unique with its Swedish style decoration and Swedish style yummy breakfast. Ruth provided a hearty breakfast literally farm-to-table.

This was one of the most unique B&Bs that we have ever visited.. From the location, to the property itself, the light and bright sitting room where guests may sit and chant, the quality of the bedroom and bathroom, the fantastic Swedish style breakfast set on a table with crystal glasses, lovely place settings and a table to include all...

Fantastic B&B - Our room (Umea) was lovely, spacious, light, clean and just perfect for what we needed. It was great to have enough space in the room for a coffee table and chairs, giving us the option to relax with a glass of wine in comfort on an evening. Ruth is a lovely host, informative on the local area...

We didn't know what to expect when we booked the Lulea room at Little Gnesta but were pleasantly surprised by the oasis that was provided. The room was basically furnished but comfortable and the bathroom was amazingly large and spotlessly clean. The lovely bath products were a nice way to get ready for the day. Ruth provided a healthy and...

Thanks so much for your nice review. I'm glad you had a good time. I just want to clarify that Little Gnesta is in the downtown of Newport and only two blocks from the waterfront and four restaurants. There is another restaurant on the water's edge which is a 12 minute walk.

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...

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!

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.
