My husband and I stayed at the Roussell’s Garden Bed and Breakfast in April 2014. We were greeted by the inn keeper Bryan who was very welcoming. He invited us in, gave us the tour of the inn, both inside and out and even had maps and brochures ready for use to help navigate around the Savannah historic district. The inn is beautifully decorated and the inn keepers make you feel right at home. We stayed two nights in the Mandevilla Room on the second floor. The room offers a king size, four poster bed with a canopy. The bed was very comfortable and the sheets smelled so fresh! The bathroom was very spacious with a pedestal sink and claw foot bathtub. Breakfast was wonderful. We had a French toast casserole, scrambled eggs, bacon and potatoes one morning and an Alaskan bake casserole, eggs, hash browns, fruit and biscuits the next morning. All was served buffet style. There is always coffee, hot water for tea and bottled water available anytime during the day and night along with some goodies to snack on. The B & B is located just a few blocks from Forsyth Park and approximately one mile from River Street. For us it was a very comfortable walk to the river. We parked the car on Friday and did not get back in until we left on Sunday! The inn maintains some very nice garden areas that are very relaxing to just sit and read a book or listen to the many birds in the area sing. The swing on the front porch was very relaxing! The only drawback to the inn is the traffic noise level. There is a red light and bus stop just outside the B & B’s front door. The Mandevilla room where we stayed had a street side view. The traffic noise did not seem to subside until well after midnight on Friday, although was much better on Saturday night. However, this is a wonderful B & B with wonderful host and in a great location just far enough outside the historic district, but still within walking distance.
