Our 1st time staying at a Bed & Breakfast and just loved every minute of it! The Rusca House has beautiful grounds and the home was lovely. Debbie made us fabulous breakfast and couldn't have asked for a better 3 days!! RIck and Paige

Loved the Bayou Amulet / Rusca House

5 on November 16, 2014

We were very pleased with the Bayou Amulet B&B (next door to Rusca House and run by same folks). There were two couples in our party & we rented the Wisteria & Magnolia rooms. The rooms & private baths were so nice and the king beds were very comfy. Breakfast was wonderful. We all felt right at home. Bridget was great. We will definitely stay there again!

Happy guest

My husband and I stayed for six glorious days at the Rusca House and truly had the best experience. We were so happy with our stay; we booked a visit for our anniversary in January. Thanks for such a great time.

Beautiful place to stay

My husband and I stayed here for our Anniversary and we loved it. The home is absolutely beautiful, the room we stayed in was very comfortable. I loved how we had a private entrance that opened up to the gardens and the bath tub was so relaxing. My husband fell in love with this house and its architecture. The innkeeper, Debbie, was very friendly and outgoing, and a very good cook. Thank you for a wonderful stay!

Great Experience

My husband and I had a wonderful experience at your B&B. Our room was spacious and beautiful. The gardens are peacefully serene, a most relaxing place. Breakfast was delicious, served elegantly and timely. We will definitely visit your B&B again and recommend it to our friends. G, Rowlett TX

Quaint Bed and Breakfast

4.6 on October 05, 2014

This was our first stay at a Bed and Breakfast and we were very happy. It was exactly what I expected from a Bed and Breakfast. Wonderful accommodations and an excellent breakfast. Diane was a great cook and hostess.

Wonderful breakfast

3.4 on September 24, 2014

We had a lovely time at the Rusca House. The room was nice but there were some issues and we ended up having to stay at the B and B next door which is owned by the same people. My only complaint would be that there was no wifi next door and I think the experience would have been improved if this were a more typical B and B with owners staying on the property. The only time we saw anyone was a breakfast. That being said the breakfast was wonderful and the company then delightful.
