Property description

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.

If you bring Fido, he will love the back yard, exterior entrance, and paved sidewalk for daily walks. Find a comfortable spot in the living area to read, watch TV, or visit with the innkeeper or other guests. The home accommodates up to 10 guests between the 3 private guest suites. This listing for the Veranda Room only with the option to add the Gardener's Room. If you need more space, please feel free to ask and will be glad to rent the entire house for a discounted rate based on availability. We also have other vacation properties that are located in a more rural setting on Prairie Creek 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 are provided with extra towels and daily trash pickup in common areas. If your room needs attention during your stay, please request service.

Continental breakfast of pastries, oatmeal, fresh fruit, coffee, and juice available each morning. Breakfast is always open so guests may enjoy it on their schedule. Snacks are also available.

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.

Owner info

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 pur 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. As it turns out, our son Zac was very interested in our project. He relocated to Mena after college and started pouring in sweat equity to renovate this great home. We opened the downstairs in October 2014 and will have the exterior and upstairs renovations finished in April 2015. We also love our dogs and frequently travel with them. Finding pet friendly accommodations that are nice is sometimes a challenge. Thats why 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 amenties.

The Unique Benefits at this Bed And Breakfast:
Dog friendly, casual atmosphere.
