We had an absolutely lovely at The Rusca House. The room was fantastic- we loved the private entrance and the garden right outside our door. Breakfast was delicious and plentiful. Bridget was very easy to communicate with and the check-in/check-out was a breeze. It as perfect for a quiet and peaceful getaway!

We enjoyed one day before Christmas and had an enjoyable time as usual. We would highly recommend Rusca House--the breakfast is always so delicious and filling. The house is always decorated so beautifully.

Rusca House - Natchitoches wonderful B&B

4.8 on October 24, 2016

I recently spent 3 nights at the Rusca house, combination of pleasure and business trip. The house is wonderful! I have some dietary restrictions, and once they were aware of it, through casual conversation, they made a breakfast that fit my needs.

Great time

Very lovely house, it was the highlight of our entire roundtrip. Beautiful rooms and an awesome garden. The only minor downside is the weak wifi-reception inside the house- but everything else is outstanding!

Highly Recommend this B&B!

Perfect location. Charming grounds/home/porch. Comfy/clean room. Nice small private deck. Very reasonable rate. Nice breakfast items served in a lovely dining room, by a very sweet girl, but hot items were cold (eggs, sausage, biscuits, croissant).

Pearl Room was great!

We spent one night here in the Pearl room. I recommend the Rusca House. Great location and very comfortable B&B!
