The Stables

When you tour our 60 acre estate you will discover why Savvy Shields, Arkansas’ own Miss America said “wow, wow, wow!”  Tour the Old Word charm of The Chapel Ruins where you will say your “I do’s”. The Stables Event center is a showcase of rustic elegance for your stunning reception. The Peacock Room is designed for the lovely bride, intimate and lavish in color and charm with a one way window so you can watch your guests arrive in complete privacy.” See why Helen Wisner (Miss USA, 2014) and Sloane Roberts (Miss Arkansas, 2012) celebrated their weddings at Sassafras Springs.

Once There Were Beautiful Horses….

Now there are beautiful brides in the Stables Event Center on the estate that had been the horse farm of former Razorback football coach Houston Nutt. With 3,500 square feet available to stage your wedding reception, rehearsal dinner, corporate event, nonprofit gala or business banquet, the Stables is the quintessential setting.

The Details…

The Stables reception venue will accommodate up to 200 guests inside, 80 guests on the side deck and 120 on the back deck. Also, we’ve just added the Veranda, a covered room off the Stables which will seat 250 guests for a ceremony or 150 guests for dining. The Veranda has a stunning view of the vineyards. When you book your event at the Stables, we provide round tables with linens and crystal Chiavari chairs, custom wine-barrel cocktail tables, catered menu and a Sassafras wine and beer menu with bartenders. A wireless microphone, ceiling speakers and 90” flat screen monitor are included, too.

Creative flourishes inside the Stables

Men’s and women’s rooms with some of the farm’s original horse stalls (no worries! Not a whiff of horse!), wine art by renown Canadian painter Leanne Laine, exquisite light fixtures created by a craftsman from Paso Robles, California with wine barrel rings that encircle stunning wine glass chandeliers.

Our experienced staff personalizes every detail to fulfill your “Grape Expectations”—that’s the enchantment of Sassafras Springs!
