Upstairs, the spacious Master has a double bed w pillow top mattress, BR 2 has two single beds and a reading nook w vintage recliner. Our air matress will fit in either if you have more than 4 in your party.

Cozy quiet private and small close to everything! We hit Sun Studios, Graceland, the Lorraine Hotel, and Beale Street - all within 10 minutes by car. What's more, the neighborhood is full of gorgeous Craftsman style houses. Made the arrival and departure both pleasures.

I like this place. Very quiet. It's a carriage house in the back yard but full of function. it's a perfect place to stay.

We enjoyed our stay at Matt & Kimble's carriage house very much! We loved how quaint it was, and that it was located in a peaceful neighborhood with easy access to get anywhere in Memphis. Matt & Kimble were great hosts as well, and their homemade "guide to Memphis" was very very useful! We definitely recommend staying here, and would definitely return if we ever come back to Memphis!

Matt And Kimble User ProfileMatt And Kimble is a superhost.

We love traveling but are always, always glad to come back to Memphis. It won't take you long to see why we love living in this city. I work for the Memphis Grizzlies and my husband is a finish carpenter, old home remodeler and sings in a couple of bands. I am a water baby, a basketball freak, love camping, music, old houses, and the big, wonderful family of friends we have found in our beloved midtown.
