This is a very pretty home in a great part of Newport, VT. Very near the water and downtown. The hospitality was wonderful too, I'd definitely return. Breakfast was full home cooked selections, delicious.

Very happy to have found this B & B. The accommodations are extremely comfortable and our room was impeccably clean, spacious, and very nicely decorated. Ruth is a lovely host, very welcoming, friendly, and helpful. We enjoyed her European style breakfast and especially loved that it was all sourced locally. Little Gnesta is located in walking distance to downtown Newport...

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...

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.

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.

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!
