“Best BnB I've ever experienced”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 29, 2012

I loved this place. The house and rooms were charming without being overly decorated and stuffy feeling. It was the perfect mix of fancy and homey. Breakfast was outstanding. I would definitely stay here again. I am seriously considering opening my own bed and breakfast with this one as the standard.

Room Tip: I stayed in the Skylight room

We just returned from a football weekend at Ole Miss in Oxford, MS with another couple and chose the Sassafras Inn for its' convenient location to both Oxford and Memphis. We were not disappointed. The B&B was lovely, the rooms spacious and the breakfast plentiful. However, best of all was our host Eric. At breakfast he entertained us with stories about his life, history on the surrounding area and local musicians. There is also a pool and hot tub on the grounds and a rec room with a pool table and flat screen TV. Because we were always on the go we did not get to enjoy either but hope to on a return visit.

Eric the owner showed us hospitality better then 5star. Accommodation and rooms spoilt us. He gave us all assistance to see the best Beale St had to offer and an intro to see the best . The breakfast lasted us all day. In the evenings he gave us free range in the pool spa area. We also made best use of his pool table. Nothing was too much for this host who was also a great guitar blues player.. Thanks Eric you are a legend.. Max Sheila Pete and Alison.

We recently stayed a week at the Sassafrass and would definitely do it again. Not only is the innkeeper extrememly knowledgable about the area, the amenities are first rate. We loved having a private, indoor pool and hot-tub to relax in every night; the beds are unbelievable comfortable, and the breakfast provides a great start to the day. We also must have played 40 games of pool in the billiard room. I would say the best kept secret about this place is that it is not only close to downtown Memphis, but it is close to all sorts of points of historical interest in Mississippi and Arkansas as well. We ate at the Hollywood Cafe, made famous by Marc Cohn in his song "Walking in Memphis." The cafe is on the outskirts of Tunica, a beautiful twenty minute drive from the Sassafrass through scenic western Mississippi. We also found wonderful points of interest in Southaven and VIcksburg. Hernando itself is a town worth an afternoon of exploring, too. The innkeeper offered a "buy two nights-get a third one free" package for our room, and this made our stay cheaper than most budget motels in the area. Combined with the wonderful nights' sleep in the comfortable beds, this was one of our best vacations.

Room Tip: Ask for the Victorian room if you are staying for an extended stay. It has a large closet and doubl...

We stayed at the Sassafrass Inn for a night following our trip from Birmingham to Memphis for the UAB-Memphis football game on 11/12/2011. (Go Blazers!) Eric was a very gracious host, and our stay was wonderful. The location is excellent, as it has a country feel and the quaint little town of Hernando is nearby, but it's only a couple miles from I-55. We hope to stay here again when the Blazers take on the Tigers in basketball season. :-)

My husband and I stayed at the Sassafras in June of this year for nearly a week, and would move in with Eric if we could. He's a wonderful host and the home is beautiful. It's in a great area, about 20 minutes max from Memphis which is perfect for site seeing. We went out every day, spent the day in the city, then returned home to a comfortable bed and a dip in the pool. Eric was kind enough to pipe a variety of music out for us while we swam, and is a talented musician with plenty of advice on where to find some great music in Memphis. The breakfast is beyond outstanding, we left every day stuffed and didn't need to worry about lunch until late in the afternoon. The house is quiet, private, and secure, and there are plenty of music choices in each bedroom (each has a CD player) as well as a library of movies. There is no better place to stay near Memphis, we will be back!

My wife and I just stayed with Eric in his lovely B&B for three nights over the Labor day weekend. This is a lovely, unassuming place, just looks like a nice country home as you drive up. The amenities are above average with an indoor pool/hot tub, and a billiards/home theater room. I've never seen a host as personally involved as Eric. The home is lovely, exceptionally clean, well appointed, (you will really need nothing except clothing. There is plenty to read, movies to watch, music to listen to. Eric even provided us with umbrellas one rainy day!! ) I have no words to further describe how much I recommend this B&B. I feel I still haven't done it justice. The only thing I would recommend is a varied breakfast menu for patrons who stay extended days. However, breakfast was very good.
