At the Southeast end of the Historic District a short walk from Forsyth Park is this gem of a B&B. If you like gardens this is a must stay. If you like baked delights you have found the right cookie jar to stick your hand in! The owners Bryan and Janet of Roussell’s Garden opens their arms to you and by the end of your stay you feel like a member of the family.
I was traveling by myself, writing my current novel and stayed in the parlor on the first floor of Mr. Bryan’s Garden. He is originally from New Orleans and has brought some beautiful appointments for his luscious gardens with him. My porch door gave me my own access to the front porch swing and a beautiful view and steps down into the gardens.
Things I love about this place: There is no pressure to be at breakfast at a single time. Instead you have the option to show up when you feel inspired between a two hour span of time. This gives late risers or eaters their leisure to show up when they please and is a great option for those who like to go with the flow while on vacation.
Miss Janet had lots of ideas of tasty Southern fare to morph into Vegan and Gluten free for this fussy traveler! In her afternoon, “help yourself” offerings she even included Vegan Banana Bread, a Southern favorite.
Another plus is the free street parking and ease of walking pretty much anywhere off of the Historic district. I am sure I will return to Roussell’s Garden again and will surely be grateful when I do!
