The grand entrance that welcomes you through our "sunken" garden and into our home. Quiet backyard with large patio surrounded by a beautiful private garden. The patio occupies the space of the original carriage house that once stood there. The brick used in the new hardscape is the brick that was part of the carriage house and was found buried in the yard.

Thank you Courtney for choosing Lions Rest for your trip to Midtown Memphis. We look forward to hosting you again. Hopefully you can also give us to tips on our next visit to Fort Worth. Don't forget to book ahead when you know you will be headed back to Memphis. We are converting another space to an apartment so if Lions Rest is booked be sure to inquire about our second apartment. It is currently in its renovations stages. See you again soon. I hope your daughter enjoys her time at Rhodes and makes some lifelong friends.
