Do weird things make you cry? are you clumsy, hungover or jet lagged? Yeeaah....you probably need a good nights sleep. This bungalow delivers! Central to everything but quiet in the evening. C'mon and get pampered! Read entire listing first.
Thanks for checking out the "Private Suite in Midtown Bungalow".
The Bungalow was built in 1920. The year that Jazz blossomed, Art Deco peaked and so did Prohibition and "the Flapper". Good times!
The suite offers nice linens, towels and a relaxing atmosphere in a very private space located upstairs away from other rooms in a slightly large but sweet bungalow in the historic Evergreen District, five minutes from downtown and within walking distance to the Levitt Shell, Overton Park, Brooks Art Museum, the Memphis Zoo, Overton Square and the Cooper-Young area as well.
The suite has an attached private bathroom w/ shower and bathtub and also a ceiling fan directly over the bed and a desk as well. There are racks for your suitcases and a closet ready for your clothes. The bathroom has several drawers to store your toiletries in for easy access.
There is a cabinet in the bathroom with a green glass handle that has several lotions, sunscreen, shampoo, etc for you to use if needed.
There is another room downstairs listed under "Vintage Room for Solo Traveler" I only open that listing occasionally but just wanted to mention that there might be other folks staying here during your stay from time to time.
You can park in the driveway right in front of the entrance and the keychain has a push button flashlight for ease and of course the porch light would be on if you arrive in the evening.
Overton Park is a few blocks away and is a great place to walk if you want to stretch after a long drive. There is a FREE concert series coming up in mid May. This is an incredible venue and all the concerts are amazing as well. They are Thursday -Sunday. Just walk down the street! Search the Levitt Shell for information about that.
If you read reviews that mentioned breakfast it's probably because the guest paid extra or stayed for several days and I included a light one on their last day.
If you would like a full breakfast with fresh squeezed juice, fresh flowers in your room and daily baked homemade cookies. Please search the Memphis airbnb listings again under "The Dandelion" and make your reservation there.
Whatever choice you make, I'm sure you'll be happy.
If you're vegan, let me know in advance. It's nice to know for restaurant recommendations or if I need to make almond or walnut milk.
Feel free to stretch out, put your feet up, grab a book, wrap up with a throw in the living room or library. It makes me happy to see my guests feeling comfy here. That's what makes airbnb stand out from hotels right? and yes, cliche as it sounds. Mi casa es su casa!
re driving, I offer my navigation system to make it easy to get around the city. It's a pretty easy city to navigate anyway but every little bit helps.
If you're without wheels you can take "Memphis Hop". The trolley is great but it's limited to where it will take you. This service will take you to all major attractions and offers discounts as well, it's kind of a win-win. You can catch the shuttle down the street at Overton Park.
There are walkable music venues near here such as The Hi-Tone, Stonewall Hall and of course The Levitt Shell. Also there are some eateries, a great gift shop and a yoga center as well and more. Keep in mind that wed-sat offer better music choices.
As far as interaction. If you come in after a night out and I'm in the kitchen, it seems rude of me not to ask how your night went. So I usually do but I have no interest in monopolizing your time. It's not that I don't enjoy chatting with guests, I do but I feel I'm pretty good at reading people and would hope you could do the same for me as well. Yes, we hosts enjoy our guests but also are on our own programs as well at times.
Feel free to ask me any questions. Hope to see you in Memphis :)
smoking only allowed on furnished enclosed front porch.
no candles upstairs. I ask that you don't use ink
pens in the bed.
call ahead if can't make check in times. I'm pretty flexible.
We loved Taryn's place and really enjoyed our stay. She is an awesome host, with useful tips for memphis and other cities around, even new orleans! Lot of nice little details, all set to perfection for us to feel confortable... thanks so much! Not to mention the delicious cookies she make, and find the breakfast ready when we finally get out of bed... : )
My friend and I were only stopping in Memphis for the night on our way to NOLA, and looking for something cozy to get a good night sleep. Because we had originally planned to drive straight threw and our plans changed at the last minute, we only gave Tayrn less than a days notice about our arrival, but she was incredibly flexible and responsive by text. Her home is beautiful and such a warm space. It was a quiet residential neighborhood and a perfect stop off for us. She also generously offered us 2 of her infamous cookies...which were delicious! Would definitely stay again in the future.
Taryn was incredibly welcoming, flexible, and kind. Originally, we'd expected to spend one night in Memphis, but plans changed due to a snowstorm that caused road closures. She went out of her way to make us feel at home, offering breakfast, fresh-baked cookies, books, movies, and more. When we had to add a second night to our stay, she continued to be hospitable and helpful. She provided everything we could have needed and kept us aware of road and travel conditions. We could not have picked a better house to stranded in! The house is clean, comfortable, and adorable, and the suite was perfect for our needs.
Taryn is incredibly affable, and the suite she offers is everything I was looking for in my vacation.
We had a great experience at Taryn's. The room was as described, very clean. There were plenty of clean towels and even cookies and tangerines. Definitely recommend.
What a fantastic and relaxing stay! We received an amazing dinner recommendation and slept like babies in the private upstairs suite. Highly recommended!

I managed a few B&B's for several years before coming to Memphis and thought it would be fun to have my own. Though not exactly the same, there are many perks that are similar. I have a tiny cookie business that keeps me pretty busy and I seem to host almost everyday (lucky) :) Also I'm a session vocalist. But don't worry, I promise not to break out in song while you're here or try to promote my latest music endeavor. My work as a food stylist and catering business owner has served me well over the last few years. It also helps me recommend the best restaurants in not only Memphis but Nashville as well. My diet pretty much consists of organic green juices and cookie dough......yep. it's true!
Spain has been my favorite trip so far. My favorite exercise is floating in lakes or the ocean. I guess it doesn't really count as exercise because I'm super buoyant :P I love Tennessee because it's has not one but THREE music cities and that makes it pretty special :)
