Chere was a wonderful host! The guest house is located in such a cute neighborhood! So many great little places to walk to, including a farmers market directly across the street. Wish we had more time to try it all!
Lovely guesthouse equipped with all your needs. Neighborhood was quiet and centrally located. The fenced in yard was a plus since I traveled with pets. I plan to stay again during future trips to Memphis.
We loved staying at the FEMA house. Chere is a very sweet woman. We took our 3 small dogs to Memphis with us, and they fell in love with her and Leona (her dog). The house is spacious, and the location was perfect for everything we wanted to do. I would recommend the FEMA house to anyone.
Chere made us feel welcome by accommodating our request to meet us at the time we asked to meet. She answered all our questions. The guesthouse came as advertised and suited us well. We liked the shade and green around the house. The location in Memphis gave us easy access to downtown and the friends we visited.
We had stayed at the FEMA Guesthouse before, which is why we chose it the second time. My granddaughter and I met my daughter and son-in-law who are from Ohio there. Chere is very accommodating.
I just completed a wonderful visit to Memphis for the first time and the FEMA Guesthouse really contributed to the stay. It was clean, organized, well appointed, charming and in a great walkable neighborhood with dining, coffee and nightlife options within a five minutes walk. Chere was a very accommodating and communicative host and the check-in was simple and effortless. I really hope to come back to Memphis and would definitely make this cute cottage my home base again.
Chere treated us like family and was communicative when we had questions about the house. She was prompt with replies and a very gracious host! We enjoyed having coffee outside in one of a few seating areas in the well-manicured backyard. The house is in the heart of a fun neighborhood and is walkable to coffee shops, restaurants, bars, and Goner Records! The carriage house has all of the charm and quirkiness one would expect in a Midtown Memphis home.
