About Us


This  Neoclassical Revival style house was completed in 1907 by Byron Glover  who was a cotton broker.  Mr. Glover decided to move to Savannah to seek  his fortune in the cotton export business.  He sold the property to  James Pope Brown, a planter and politician.

In the  mid 1900's  the house was bought by Robert H. Rush who's family lived  here until Mrs. Rush sold it to a 20 member investment group in 1989.  After renovating the home the investment group opened the "Black Swan  Inn and Restaurant".  (Black Swan was named after a steamboat that would  travel the Ocmulgee River).  

In 1996 The Black  Swan Inn had the pleasure of hosting the Irish equestrian team during  the 1996 Summer Olympics.  After the closing of the inn, the property  was purchased by Rebecca Sears in 1997.  


Our Journey

Lora and Louis DePietro, Innkeepers/Owners


In 2012 we  purchased the property from Mrs. Sears and our journey began.  

We knew that this grand house could be very special.  It was our diamond in the rough and so we set out to bring back its grandeur  and put our dream in motion.  

It  took 2 1/2 years for our dreams to be realized.  We had been  continuing our work up north while trying to renovate this beautiful  home.  

It  wasn't until we moved to GA permanently in June of 2014 that we really  put everything together.  From the hand painted ceiling medallions and crystal chandeliers, the warm and cozy wall colors to decorating our home with antique furnishings.

Our Gardens are a work in progress.  But we are loving every minute of planting plants that attract humming birds and of course butterfly's.

We  were so excited to finally open our doors April 1, 2015 and share this beauty with our  guests.  I do believe anyone who enters The Butterfly Mansion will go  away with a want and a need to return and enjoy more of this beautiful  gem.
