This is a charming property and came highly recommended. However, we paid nearly $600 for three nights (holiday rate) for a room that was not serviced on a daily basis and lacked some basic amenities. An e-mail was sent to the innkeeper with no reply. We will not return.

This is an outstanding property on a nice, pretty, quiet street in green and clean "Knack-I-Tish", LA. You have easy access to your rooms. No stairs to climb. Huge room, tastefully appointed...bathroom ensuite. Great breakfasts served by Bridget. Wow pictures and posters located throughout. Beautiful homey living room to enjoy your pre-breakfast coffee in while visiting with friends and/or other...

We spent two nights in the "Stella" room. We found the room to be spacious, well appointed and clean. The air jetted tub was a wonderful opportunity to relax in total peace. Our room, as with all the other rooms, had it's own private entrance. Coffee & tea was provided in the room. The beautiful grounds is an added bonus....

The B&B was clean, beautifully decorated and the owners are charming. The Rusca House is located on Poete Street which is the most beautiful street in all of Natchitoches. It is a short and scenic 3 minute stroll to downtown historic Natchitoches. The expertly landscaped gardens located on the property are perfect for coffee or an evening glass of wine.

We've stayed at this inn several times in both the Pearl and St. Elmo rooms. They are both quite lovely. I think I prefer the Pearl as it seems a bit more secluded to me. Both the rooms have nice bathrooms with jetted bathtubs. The rooms are quite comfortable and the owner is always a pleasure to work with. Breakfast...

I was taken aback by the romantic charm of this place. We had a private back entrance to our room, which made it seem like we were renting our own apartment for the night. The key was taped to the back door, which was great! We didn't have to check in, and it was so convenient. The room was spacious,...

We enjoyed our stay at The Rusca House. Breakfast was delicious! The location is convenient to Front Street. The house has all of the Natchitoches charm and we loved the size of our room. With a little break in the heat, we were able to enjoy sitting on the front porch and relax after breakfast one morning. We look forward...

Second trip to Natchitoches and second time to stay here. Home away from home; very comfortable. Bridgett is a gem and will bend over backwards for her guests. Wonderful elaborate breakfast with stick to your ribs courses. We want to eat lunch in town before we leave, but we're not sure we'll be hungry yet!

We have stayed in several Natchitoches area bed and breakfasts. This one is now our favorite. Private entrances, large jacuzzi tubs, beautifully-kept gardens with fountains, delicious breakfasts, outside sitting areas, porch swing, wood floors, great location, cold drinks -- I could go on and on. Even bug spray left on the porch for you! It doesn't have the lace and...

We stayed at Rusca House for one night, to break the journey from Dallas to New Orleans. We had booked 2 rooms in the house but as no one else was staying, were able to make use of the whole house. The rooms were lavishly decorated, and the living room had large sofas and a DVD collection. Breakfast was made...

“I think Pearl is the best room, but my son and his wife stayed in Stella and were quite pleased. Pearl has private entrances from both the front and the back as well as a door leading to the rest of the house. There is another room immediately adjacent to Pearl — Delmonico, I think — that also has a separate, private entrance to the rear.”
