“Safe Home base”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 June 2013

We traveled to Memphis to Visit Graceland ,Sun Studio and other local attractions. This was the perfect location. Less than an hour to most everything including the Casinos in Tunica. Eric was very helpful with info. Enjoyed the Pool Table in the game room.

Eric is a great host and knows how to make his guests feel at home. He has interesting stories on music and can give great advice on the area.
We enjoyed our stay and the room was perfect. Would reckomend it to anyone visiting the Memphis area. It beats staying the large hotels. !

Eric has a wonderful place to stay. We wanted something close the Memphis without the feeling of a hotel. Not only does Eric offer great hospitality, he also knows exactly what to do and where to go. He recommend BB Kinds for dinner and live music. It was perfect. I would recommend this B&B to everyone.

My husband and I stayed at the Sassafras Inn on our wedding night. I am from Memphis and found the Sassafras Inn far enough away to seem removed from the city but close enough to be extremely convenient.

The Inn is very cute, and there are lots of amenities available, though we did not take advantage of them on this trip. The room was spotlessly clean and very comfortable. It felt as though we were staying in the home of a dear friend. The Inn was very quiet on the night we stayed. We were especially pleased with breakfast, which was delicious. Eric, the owner, seemed to be willing to accommodate food preferences and asked us about them the night before.

Eric was a fantastic host -- very accommodating and hospitable. We felt very welcome from the moment we arrived. He is very knowledgeable about the area and we are sure he is a great resource for out-of-town guests. I simply cannot say enough nice things about our stay here and want to return very soon.

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.
