Each one of our guest rooms are uniquely decorated with antique furnishings. The hand painted ceiling medallions and crystal chandeliers add to the elegance and romantic flair.
Each day the Inn Chef prepares an extravagant multi- course breakfast. Sip freshly brewed coffee and dine on a four course breakfast served on china with crystal and silver service in the elegant dining room.
Enjoy sitting in the parlor or on one of our porches and let your stress just melt away.
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.
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.
