We will provide sightseeing information for our guests. With our full kitchen, if there are any additional cooking utensils or equipment that are needed, the guests have only to let us know; we will be happy to furnish them with whatever they need. We have compiled "Guide to Memphis" with all our personal recommendations on restaurants, shopping, sightseeing, etc. We've also included loads of brochures and maps!

The Neighborhood

Our neighborhood is one of the most beautiful in Memphis. It is sought after as a place of residence by people who have lived in Memphis all their lives and by newcomers. It is resplendent with big, old trees, a beautiful park, restaurants, theaters, a cinema, and bike lanes.

Getting around

Public transit is available but not as convenient as we would like. If you need taxi service, let us know and we will give you the name of a very dependable driver. Many restaurants and entertainment spots are within walking distance. If you want, you are welcome to use our "clunker" bikes. Overton Park is a wonderful biking destination.

  • We only spent a couple of days at this very comfortable, well appointed Carriage House in Midtown Memphis - wish it had been much longer! Rebecca and Jim were on hand to welcome us, supportive with suggestions and local knowledge. We did not get to know them in this short time, but what we did see, we liked. The location is very good, both for downtown and exploring further afield. We would certainly like to return here for a longer spell if we pass this way again! Thank you both.

    Thanks for the recommendation to eat at Central BBQ. Great Eats!

  • We had a wonderful time in Memphis at the carriage house.
    Excellent location. Close to restaurants, shopping and downtown.
    I will certainly recommend this location to our friends. I took many pictures
    to remember our stay here. So much better than a run of the mill hotel.

  • We had a lovely stay in Memphis. Jim and Rebecca were very accommodating and the carriage house was perfect. Lovely touch of orange juice and bagels waiting for us too!
    Wouldn't hesitate to stay there again.

  • This place was a very cozy guest house right behind the owner's main house, separated by a small garden and fountain. It actually reminded me of a couple of bnb's I've been to before. The guest house itself was clean and had everything my family needed, and some bagels and oj was provided for breakfast, as well as some fruit, which was nice. I definitely would return! Also, great location with one of the city's best BBQ's, Central BBQ, only five minutes away!

  • Our two night stay turned into a 4 night vacation in Memphis because of snow and ice between us and home. It was wonderful to be 'stuck' in the carriage house. It is spacious, comfortable, well appointed and has good light. The location made it easy to get down to the river, find good restaurants in and around the neighborhood and to get to the Botanical Garden, Dixon Gallery and Gardens and the Pink Palace Museum. We had a great time and commented to each other often that staying in the carriage house made all the difference in the world. Thank you Jim and Rebecca for sharing.

  • We had a great stay at Jim and Rebecca's carriage house! The place is very clean, homey, and comfortable, and in a great location. Jim and Rebecca were very nice, accommodating, and provided plenty of information of things to do while we visited Memphis. Also, their artwork is fantastic and added a special touch! Thanks again, Jim and Rebecca!

  • We had a lovely weekend stay in very very cold weather at this cozy but perfectly roomy converted garage. It has tile floors and is very dry and sunny and there is an eat-in kitchen, a comfortable couch and a very comfortable bed with ample closet space and very good water pressure in the shower. It would be even nicer in weather when we could have taken advantage of the outdoor space. Parking was easy, the neighborhood was safe and very convenient for driving. there was good fruit there. Internet worked very well. Despite the below freezing temperatures the extra heater and furnace kept us warm without drying out the air. We would definitely stay here again.

About
We have enjoyed "retooling" this space which Rebecca used as a studio and making it into a comfortable and charming residence. We are both artists, so the house is filled with our original paintings and photography. We love traveling, especially to urban locations. Rebecca paints and I take pictures. However, we love staying at home, too. Our Midtown location is only two blocks from restaurants, theaters, cinema, very close to an old growth forest park We are surrounded by tree lined streets and older homes like ours.
