The Veranda Room is one of two rooms available on the first floor of this fully renovated 1900 colonial home. It's is the perfect place for a comfortable stay in Mena. The Veranda Room offers a king bed, chair, flat panel TV with cable programming, WiFi, and private exterior access from the Southern charm of the 2 story open air veranda. Guests will enjoy a private bath for their party occupying the Veranda and/or Gardener's room. The Gardener's Room may be added to the Veranda Room reservation and offers a full size bed, TV with cable programming, dressing vanity, and side chair. The Gardener's Room is not available to guests outside of the Veranda Room's party to ensure exclusive use of the bath for guests in the same party who may rent one or both of these rooms. Renting both the Veranda and the Gardener's Rooms is ideal for families, co-workers, and friends traveling together who may want to have 2 private rooms but don't mind sharing the bath.
*** To reserve BOTH rooms contact the owner or include your request during booking***. Adding the Gardener's room is an additional $20/night.

The Sassafras is a modern twist on a traditional B&B. Every aspect is designed for self service while great care has been taken to ensure that our guests are comfortable and have access to everything they may need. All rooms offer a private bath and are separated by ample living space to ensure each guests enjoys their privacy but may enjoy time visiting in the parlor, living room, and kitchen which are all accessible to our guests. Janee & Kevin will stop by occasionally to restock supplies and tidy up. We are always available but never underfoot
We want you to enjoy your stay along with the other guests so of course, there are a few house rules:
If you bring Fido, he must be leashed while outside and entering/exiting the inn for his safety.
While you are away, a crate is available for Fido to prevent accidental spills or damage. It is available upon request if you would like that peace of mind while you are away and Fido relaxes in your room.
Smoking is permitted outdoors only.
The Sassafras is located just a short walk to a convenience store and elementary school via paved sidewalk. The area is great for walkers, runners, and cycling enthusiasts. Downtown Mena is less than a mile away and boasts numerous antique and flea market style shops. Several great local restaurants in the downtown area offer everything from southern diner food and attitude to fresh and fabulous salads in an artistic setting. As you venture out onto hwy 71, you will find several retail stores and restaurants. A short scenic drive will take you to our local state park where you may hike on a variety of trails. For a quick and easy hike/walk, stop at the visitor's center at the base of the Talimena Scenic Drive to explore. Mena and the surrounding Ouachita Mountains offer many options for both active and leisurely travelers.
