The FEMA Guesthouse is a fully furnished & renovated mid-town Memphis guesthouse located in the historically hip Cooper-Young neighborhood, within walking distance to FAB neighborhood restaurants/night spots, coffee house, shops, music and books. Saturday Cooper-Young Farmers Market (12 months) across the street on Saturday mornings.

Original artwork throughout, a record player with records, art supplies and other little treasures included.

Formerly a late 19th C tack house and maintaining a bit of attitudinal funk, The FEMA is located behind my primary residence in shaded, fenced yard. She is spotlessly kept and her hospitality is unrivaled, groovy, and gracious! Simple grocery items available. Coffee is always available. Outside covered porch/entry.

She was built in 1888 so her nature is campy. She has some cracks and sways, is structurally sound, but can best be described by the word "cabin". She is carefully cleaned and maintained, but as with any old girl guests should consider her age. If you are looking for spit and polish, this is not place. If you enjoy a comfortable, easy environment, this is your place.

2BR, 1B, K, L, Bath, Outside Porch
