Interaction with Guests
We will be present when the guest(s) arrives and make sure they are settled in comfortably. If we do leave town during their stay, our son lives two houses away from us and will be available to provide what is needed or answer any questions.
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!
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.
Public transit is available but not as convenient as we would like. We do have a bus schedule on hand if you want to use the buses. 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.

This is my second time to visit the carriage house. Jim and Rebecca always make me feel so welcome. It's now become my home away from home, and I recommend this cozy place to anyone visiting the Memphis area
This was a great place for a quick stay in Memphis! The neighborhood was very walkable and close to many restaurants and bars and felt safe. Jim and Rebecca were friendly and responsive and left a basket of bread and fruit for us for our arrival. The room was spacious and clean. We will keep this listing in mind if we return to Memphis!
The Carriage House is located within a neighborhood of nice houses; and within walking distance of a business district called Overton Square, a small, but bustling commercial area with restaurants and shops; and also Overton Park, a large city park with a zoo, playground and wooded walking trails. The drive to downtown is easy and takes about 10 minutes or so. My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our weekend visit to Memphis, and our stay at the Carriage House made it even better! Jim and Rebecca are thoughtful hosts that made us feel welcome with a basket of fruit and some goodies in the fridge; extra toiletries in the bathroom; and a book of suggested places to eat and visit. We loved staying at the Carriage House: it is conveniently located and was perfect for our needs!
They gave us a breakfast basket, which was great when we woke up the next morning. They gave us a key and let us do our own thing. If we wanted anything we just had to go to the front door. I felt like my family and I had privacy. Our dogs that came with us were very comfortable staying there which was a big deal. We are keeping them in mind next time we come to Memphis.
Fantastic stay! The carriage house was warm and inviting. The artwork on the walls was a nice personal touch. The welcome basket was a nice touch! The bed was super comfortable. Great location. If we ever come back (and I hope we do!), I will keep this place in mind.
We LOVED the Carriage House! Thank you Jim & Rebecca for everything. They are welcoming hosts who greeted us on arrival and had small snacks & breakfast items ready in the house. The Carriage House is both classy & cozy with all of the amenities you need and want. The location in Midtown is fantastic for Memphis explorations. We can't imagine staying anywhere else!
I had a great experience at Jim and Rebecca's carriage house. They were very kind and welcoming and always responded quickly and helpfully to my questions. The space is perfect for one or two people, and I especially liked the huge bed and the clawfoot tub. Since I stayed for several weeks, I appreciated being able to do my laundry in their basement, and I only wish the weather had allowed me to make more use of the lovely outdoor space. The neighborhood is very pretty and is one of the few in Memphis that is easy to negotiate on foot, with plenty of nearby restaurants, theaters, pharmacies and a Fresh Market. Also, Overton Park is within easy walking distance. Recommended!

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.
