Your room has a twin bed w/ memory foam (very comfy) vintage furnishings and tile in the your attached, private bathroom.
It's located in the Historic Evergreen District and just a short walk to Brooks Art Museum, Overton Park, The Levitt Shell, Memphis Zoo and some great restaurants just a few blocks away as well as a wine store a yoga studio and a gift shop.
Downtown distance is approx 2.5 miles.
Parking is very easy, right in front of the house and to unload your bags just pull up in front of the doorsteps for easy access.
I only list this room a few days per month but am always happy to have guests when it's available.
I keep cab numbers handy. There is rarely any traffic in Memphis so the fares are pretty low.
Also, if you're without wheels you can take "Memphis Hop". While the trolley is great, it's limited to where it will take you. This service takes you to all major attractions and gives you discounts at Stax, Graceland, etc. kind of a win-win. You can access "hop-on" just down the street at Overton Park.
As I mentioned Memphis zoo is just a few blocks from the house. Sometimes if you lie very still, you can hear a lion roar =)
Taryn is friendly and enthusiastic and it's contagious. She hosted me for one night in her Vintage room and she's not kidding when she calls it vintage so pardon the cliche but this place is soooooo cute!!! and probably the best place you could possibly stay in Memphis. I've got a thing about good beds and great coffee and she nails them both.
The first thing I noticed upon entering the house was the fresh, sweet aroma of baking. The house and the room were beautiful and had a charm that invited warmth, sunshine, and being at home. The room I stayed in was very lovely, comfortable single bed, and a private attached bathroom. Waiting at my bedside were some lovely snacks, including a delicious, homebaked cookie. To round up the experience of southern hospitality, Taryn was exceptionally friendly and helpful in making recommendations from the restaurants to attractions to visit in Memphis. She went out of her way to make you feel at home. I would definitely recommend this place to all visitors!
This is an awesome place and Taryn is so friendly and welcoming. The house reminded me of the beautiful, old, open houses you see in movies set in the South. Actually, wanted to stay an extra night because the house and the host were so welcoming and comfortable but no go as rooms in the house are naturally in high demand. Loved Memphis for Elvis of course and the cool music scene but Taryn's place made it all the more enjoyable.
Taryn is a wonderful host with a wonderful warm heart. Her home is lovely and she is always baking something delightful. Taryn looked after me like I was family and suggested some really good places to go. If you're staying in Memphis, stay with Taryn. Her beds are super comfy and the water pressure is excellent. Thanks again Taryn, I'll see you when I'm back in Memphis. Jordan from Australia.

Staying with Taryn was simply the best. She is a consummate host and really goes to extraordinary lengths to ensure the comfort of her guests without intruding.
Her attention to detail is outstanding, and she is warm, interesting, creative, talented and inspiring. I enjoyed my time with her very much and if I have the good fortune to return to Memphis would not want to stay anywhere else.
My bed was extremely comfortable with beautiful linens and the layout of the house ensures good privacy. The house is spotlessy clean.
Taryn's reviews are littered with superlatives and for good reason. I cannot hesitate but to heartily recommend.
Taryn is awesome. Her house is incredibly beautiful and relaxing. She gave me lots of great recommendations of places to explore in Memphis. Not to mention a delicious breakfast! I would definitely stay here again if I'm back in town.
Last minute booking. Taryn was very helpful and accommodated me for an extra night.
Taryn's house is beautiful and located within a very friendly neighbourhood right next to Memphis zoo and Levitt Shell. She is a kind, informative and friendly host and I would thoroughly recommend staying here :)
