Unlike some B&B's you have total and complete privacy in your own guest house suite, and in addition, you have shared access to the dock, lake, covered patio, gas grill, and electric smoker. It is a private lake so no license is required for fishing off the dock, and we have fishing poles you can borrow!

It was designed with a 450 sq ft studio on the east side of the building facing the driveway, and there is a smaller area on the west side of the building facing the lake that is storage (where the hot water heater, furnace, fishing equipment, and etc is stored). ***There is not a window in the guest house that provides a lake view except a small window by the bed with a partial view of the lake*** We've added some seating on the covered deck outside the storage for more privacy if you want to relax and enjoy the lake. We also have a hammock for you to enjoy near the lake. And off the back of the main house is the covered cement patio with the gas grill, smoker, seating, & etc that you are more than welcome to enjoy as well. Entry to the yard or patio is through the small gate near the patio or through the large gate on the south side of the guest house. ***There is not direct entry to the lake front from the guest house; entry is through the gates only***

I will be as involved or as invisible as you'd like during your stay.

What you can expect:
A family atmosphere - We have an old dog (Joe) who is a border collie mix that ventures outside occasionally, and a young cat (Robert) that only goes outside through a window to his catio attached to the main house. Myself (Marcie), my husband (Mike), and our daughter (Savannah) live in the main house.

Cleanliness - The guesthouse is cleaned thoroughly, and bedding washed after each guest and we have Terminix services

Respect - 'Nuff' said.

Attention - I work your standard 8-5 Mon-Fri, but I will be available via phone/email if you need to contact me, and Mike is at home most of the day as well. You won't be ignored; unless you request it. :o)

Information - Just let me know what it is, and I'll do my best to help you get anything you need during your stay: recommendations, food items, transportation, etc. Everything from helping you plan your day in Memphis - to relaxing by the lake.

Airplanes - We are located very close to the airport. We have grown accustom to FedEx flying their planes at 3am every night, but many of you may find it a bit loud. Suggestions would be: bring ear plugs (we try to keep some stocked in the bathroom drawer), leave the TV on, bring your sound machine (there's a small one in the night stand), or stay out way too late & make yourself so tired you don't hear a thing ;-)

Sunsets - you can expect some spectacular ones.

Guest access

You have total and complete privacy in your own guest house suite, and in addition, you have shared access to the dock, lake, covered patio, gas grill, and electric smoker. It is a private lake so no license is required for fishing off the dock, and we have fishing poles you can borrow!

Interaction with guests

Our family lives in the main house that is completely separate from the guest house. We will only be a door knock or phone call away & we'll be as involved or as invisible as you'd like during your stay.

Other things to note

Things to Note:

* This is a family atmosphere - loud parties or groups would not be acceptable.

* We are near the airport - the planes can be loud if you're not used to them.

* The guest house does not have direct lake access - you must go outside & through the gate to the backyard.

* The guest house has partial lake view from the small window near the bed - there is not a big picture window overlooking the lake.

* We go out of our way to accommodate any of our guests requests - we want you to enjoy your Memphis area stay!

Our visit to the Memphis area was great, thanks to Marcie, Mike and their spectacular guest house on the lake in Southaven. All communication leading up to and during our visit were prompt and efficient. Upon arrival, we were welcomed by Mike and met Marcie shortly thereafter. Inside the guest house, we found it very clean, with plenty of written help and instructions. Marcie has a very thorough binder of restaurants, menus, shopping and attractions that was very helpful. Also, our hosts provided some wonderful treats, including some for our furry kids. This was our second AirB&B visit and we were very impressed. If we pass through Memphis again, we will certainly try to stay with Marcie again.

The guest house is fully equipped. When you have been travelling and driving long distances it is wonderful to arrive and find that everything is there and you don't have to worry about a thing. All those little things like coffee, snacks, toiletries, local information, it is all there. A fabulous welcome basket of goodies that even had some breakfast items. The guest house itself has everything you could want, a very comfy bed and pillows, nice quality sheets, the towels are soft and fluffy too. There is a full size fridge, microwave and all the crockery and containers you could possibly need. There is nothing missing. Marcie has thought of every detail. We have our own place in Australia that we rent out and we know how important it is keep the house stocked with those little items. The area is very nice too. A very positive experience.

Quiet neighbourhood, everything was there to feel confortable. It was exactly like they wrote on their website. Even much better!!!

The place was very comfortable and had a great view. I stayed with my wife and 18 month old daughter. It was so convenient to have all the appliances in the room. Marcie and Mike are very friendly. Thank you for the welcome basket. I highly recommend this cute lake house.

Our family enjoyed the hospitality of Marcie - from the treats she left us to the folder full of interesting things to do in Memphis. We loved sitting outside watching the beautiful sunset. We had a great stay at Memphis with everything we needed and also the accommodation is not too far from Gracelands.

Marcie went above and beyond in making our stay memorable. My wife and I were on our honeymoon and we couldn't have been happier with the hospitality that Marcie and her husband displayed. While on our road trip my wife and I wanted to try local restaurants rather than eating at chained restaurants and Marcie had a binder full of suggestions. The binder was also full of things to do as well as places to stay clear of. They also provided a bowl of goodies and a postcard for a keepsake. The guest house was very clean and homey. My wife and I both wish that we had more time to stay and definitely would stay again.

Marcie User Profile

If I could only pick three things to describe myself, they'd be: easy-going, reliable, and organized. Although, now that I've picked those 3, I don't think I sound very fun; so I'll add "fun", "funny", or something along that line. :-)

5 things I couldn't live without would be: my family/friends, traveling, sunsets, an outdoor grill, and...salt.

I dabble in songwriting & painting, and I enjoy cooking, traveling, and experiencing new things. I actually like 'change' so that is why seeing new faces come and go is so much fun to me!

I'm pretty service orientated; so as a host, I think I am able to meet or exceed most guests’ level of expectation. I just want everyone to have a safe, fun, and relaxing time. I will go out of my way to accommodate your needs in any way I can.
