About the Property
NEW 2015- Book 1 Room or Entire House For A Comfortable & Convenient Stay.
Why choose the Sassafras Inn? Experience a modern twish on an old favorite - the "BNB". While most BNBs are managed by live in innkeepers, the Sassafras Inn is "unattended" and is designed for self service so guests may enjoy their privacy and have a light breakfast at their convenience as they venture out for a day in the Ouchitas. While there is no resident innkeeper, we live in town and can be there in a flash and are always reachable by phone/text. This concept was initially a trial run after the resident innkeeper moved from the area and so far, has been a hit with guests. We do stop by during the day to service common areas and replenish the breakfast bar where guests will find a wide assortment of oatmeal, breakfast bars, pastry, fruit, juice, coffee, tea, and snacks each day.
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. The home has a total of 3 guests suites - all located in very separate areas of the home to ensure privacy for each guest suite. This two bedroom "Veranda Suite" is located on the first floor of the inn. Guests of the Veranda Suite have their own private access to the huge veranda that runs the length of the house. This is a great place to relax with a good book, enjoy coffee, or an evening night cap. The suite has 2 bedrooms and a private full bath.
All guests are welcome to use the common areas: Kitchen, Living Room, and Dining Parlor. Feel free to pull out one of several board games or a book to get some "face time" with friends and family.
We do welcome events and offer the entire home for rent under a separate listing on Airbnb. The home accommodates up to 10 guests with 4 private bedrooms. This listing is for only for the Veranda Suite. We also have other vacation properties that are located in a more rural setting but still within 5 minutes of downtown.
Housekeeping services are limited. We are eco friendly as much as possible so daily bed changes are only upon request. Guests suites are supplied with ample linens and personal care products. We will stop by daily to restock supplies and tidy up up the common areas. If your room needs attention during your stay, please request service.
Our inn does offer dog friendly rooms. Well behaved dogs are welcome provided they remain in the guest's suite and are not categorized as a vicious breed - full blooded or mixed.
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 (Skyline Cafe) to fresh and fabulous salads in an artistic setting (American Artisan). As you venture out onto hwy 71' you will find several retail stores, more restaurants with Stache's Cookery being our favorite. A short scenic drive will take you to our local state park where you may hike on a variety of trails and enjoy a meal a the lodge restaurant with an incredible view.
Mena and the surrounding Ouachita Mountains offer many activities with hiking being one of the most popular. A short drive up the Talimena Scenic Drive will land you at the base of Rich Mountain and the Visitors Center. There are several trails that originate from here and also the Queen Wilhelmina Lodge. Maps are located inside the visitors center

Year Purchased: 2015
About the owner: My husband and I relocated to Mena in 2010 and have fallen in love with the community and the area. We live on Prairie Creek and have used VRBO to rent our cabin and cottage there for the last 2 years. This has been a wonderful experience for us. In 2014, we found one of Mena's historic homes in foreclosure and in desperate need of some TLC. We purchased the home with the intention of turning it into a self service B&B. Renovations were completed in April 2015. We also love our dogs and frequently travel with them. Finding pet friendly accommodations that are nice is sometimes a challenge. For this reason, you will find many of our properties dog friendly! We hope you enjoy your stay!
Why the Owner Chose Mena, AR, USA:
Clean, comfortable, convenient with southern charm and modern amenities.
