Bryan and Jan are great hosts and their house is gorgeous. I loved the location. Close to everything but not in the middle of all the traffic. We really enjoyed our stay. JoAnn and Mono

Bed & Breakfast with two capital B's

5 on September 08, 2015

Spent three wonderful nights in the relaxed setting of Roussell"s Garden. Bryan and Jan were the perfect hosts...ready to assist at any moment to insure that our stay in Savannah was very memorable...Jan's breakfasts were a highlight of the stay...superior to the two top rated restaurants in Savannah. By having only four guest rooms, it was delightful meeting some interesting couples as we enjoyed the cuisine. Spent an evening with Jan & Bryan at an Irish Pub doing Karaoke..what other hosts would do that? We'll definitely stay here again if we get back to Savannah. Barb & Hubie


Great location- Beautiful house and gardens, nice people

5 on April 20, 2015

We took a biking vacation with bikes on the car and riding canal, rail trails and in Savannah the historic district- Roussell's Garden had a nice variety of flowers blooming in the middle of March. It's a beautiful old Victorian House being updated. The hosts were gracious and accommodating and provided maps and information about Savannah. Great Breakfast, comfortable room and a very comfortable bed. We biked and walked around Savannah and had a great time.

Thank you so kindly. Y'all come back, you hea!


Great little Hideaway!

5 on December 02, 2014

We had such a wonderful time staying with Bryan and Jan at Roussell's Garden for Thanksgiving. They were so incredibly warm and generous, taking extra time to tell us the best places to check-out and how to get from place to place. Our room was on the second floor and was perfectly quiet and private. Breakfast was always good, and there was coffee, tea, and yummy cakes and bread available to snack on throughout the day. I really liked that the neighborhood wasn't super touristy, but you can still get downtown by walking less than ten minutes. Being so close to Forsyth park was wonderful, and there are some delicious restaurants and coffee shops all with a couple block of Roussell's (Sentient Bean, Foxy Loxy, Local 11Ten). I'm so glad that we stayed with them and look forward to visiting them again soon.


Icing on the Cake!

5 on November 30, 2014

We felt so lucky to be close to the sights of Savannah for our spur-of-the-moment Thanksgiving getaway. Bryan and Janet are warmly welcoming and they provided everything we needed for a comfortable and relaxing couple of days away from home. The hearty breakfasts are lovely to look at and deliciously appealing, and a buffet of snacks and beverages is always available. I wanted to take pictures of everything - the whole place is just lovely! We will return!


Excellence in Hospitality

5 on May 18, 2014

Just came home from our stay at Roussell's Garden and had to immediately share our wonderful experience. Bryan and Jane are some of the most pleasant people to be around - we were treated like family as soon as we arrived. Bryan is passionate (and skilled) to restore his beautiful historic home decorated with antique furniture. The bath rooms are upgraded to have a modern experience (shower heads / toilets) yet still maintains a historic flavor. Breakfast was delicious. This B&B is worth a repeat stay! I'm looking forward to our next visit to Savannah.


Wonderful B&B in a perfect location

4.8 on April 09, 2014

My husband and I stayed at the B&B so we could tour historic Savannah. It was the perfect location. It is close to Forsyth Park, where there are beautiful grounds, fountains, tennis courts, live oaks, and sometimes free music. It is only a couple of blocks away. We toured the rest of the historic district by foot on two days. There is also a free bus shuttle that you can hop onto if you don't want to walk. The city is the most beautiful city I have ever seen. The B&B has great beds and linens, very comfortable. The food is excellent. The owners have lots of information about the city and are full of advice on places to eat, etc. if you want it. I would recommend this as a great place to stay if you want to tour historic Savannah.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for your thoughtful comments. It's guests like you that make our business worthwhile.


Wonderfully Relaxing

Roussell's was everything we were looking for in a B&B. Beautiful, quiet, relaxing, comfortable and friendly. Their gardens are outstanding and the location was perfect. Janet and Bryan were the perfect hosts!


Southern Hospitality

5 on October 24, 2013

Jan & Bryan were wonderful hosts, full of sightseeing ideas and very knowledgeable about the historic district. They were available but also gave us our space. Our room was beautiful decorated in my favorite theme of blue and white. Attached bathroom was spotless too. Jan's creative, colorful breakfasts and delicious, endless coffee was a great start to our day
