About Sassafras

Devonshire Teas And More

Follow a well-worn road to a weekend in Sassafras, which retains the charm of its nineteenth century prominence as a popular destination for city dwellers. Hop from brunch to a late lunch to dinner in Sassafras's cafes and restaurants, and come back for seconds in the quaint tea rooms.
Stroll through the beautiful Alfred Nicholas or George Tindale gardens or linger in the lush sun-dappled fern gullies at nearby Sherbrooke Forest as you meander past waterfalls and picnic grounds on the nature walk trails. Beautiful period homes as well as modern houses will await you at this highly sought after hills location.
The area was named Sassafras Gully, after the trees which grew in the area and has been a well know tourist area since the early 1900's.
