Restful and relaxing

The room was very nice and comfortable. Breakfast was great and the conversation delightful. Truly a memorable stay.

First Time at a Bed and Breakfast

Outstanding experience! I felt completely at home whether I was in my room or elsewhere in the house relaxing or visiting. I was amazed at the attention to the details of my stay. The breakfast was delicious and Debbie was the perfect hostess! I wish I could return soon.

Beautiful B&B. Easy walk to Front St. Great breakfast.

I stayed in the Pearl Room, which is large and has French doors leading to the rear courtyard and to a front porch. Beautifully furnished and comfortable. Located in an historic neighborhood, Front Street is only a few blocks away (great for Christmas Lights Festival viewing). The morning breakfast was magnificent, both in terms of quantity and quality. Our host even shared her recipes!

New Year's Eve in Natchitoches

5 on January 04, 2015

We had a great night's stay at the Rusca House. We stayed in the Delmonico room. It was so nice and roomy, and overlooked the back garden area.The house was beautifully decorated for Christmas! Breakfast was delicious. The house is located several blocks from the historic downtown area, which was an easy walking distance on such a high traffic evening. We will definitely stay here again!

Perfect holiday retreat

My husband and stayed in the Stella Room, a very comfortable and quiet retreat. Enjoyed soaking in the jacuzzi tub and after a good night's rest, we were treated to a hearty breakfast prepared by a friendly and conversational host. The house was beautifully decorated for Christmas; I'm sure it's very lovely in other seasons as well, especially the gardens. It's in a great location near Front Street and American Cemetery as well as other local attractions. We drove out to Oakland Plantation south of Natchitoches for an historical tour.

Everything was excellent , except the breakfast meals had too much fat and calories to my preferences. Would have rather had a simple breakfast.

Our intire stay was a wonderful experience. The only fault if I had to pick one is that it was cold in our room. My husband and will surely stay at the Rusca house again.

Nice but not stuffy!
