Swedish-Inspired Extended Stay

Close to Jay Peak in Downtown Newport, Vermont

Vita Huset, “The White House,” offers comfortable extended-stay apartment accommodations for vacationing and business travelers alike.

The four apartments have been newly renovated and appointed in the Swedish Gustavian style, in the same spirit as Vita Huset’s award-winning sister accommodation, Little Gnesta Bed & Breakfast. Vita Huset’s downtown location, across from Little Gnesta, makes it a short walk to Newport’s restaurants, shopping, and the beautiful Lake Memphremagog.

Guests will be treated to refinished floors, Oriental rugs, abundant lighting through windows restored to their century-old beauty, and an open-air porch shaded by a historic red oak tree (the largest on record in northern Vermont.) On-site parking is available, in addition to a common, complimentary laundry room. On-site garage space may be available at a cost of $35/week.

Vita Huset invites guests for a minimum stay of one week. Monthly rates/seasonal rentals (for summer fun and skiing) may be negotiable. Small (toy breeds) adult dogs may be allowed for an additional fee of $75 per week (please check out our pet policy and call for pre-screening.)  9% VT sales tax added to all stays fewer than 30 days. Cleaning fees are waived if the apartment is left in the clean condition in which it is rented. See our policy here.

Vita Huset is a non-smoking property.
