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. Mena and the surrounding Ouachita Mountains offer many options for both active and leisurely travelers.

We also have other VRBO properties that are located in a more rural setting on Prairie Creek but still within 5 minutes of downtown.
