About this listing
Separate building with queen bed, full bath and kitchenette.
You will experience the charm of the Old South at The Farmhouse Inn, located in
Memphs, TN….Home of the Blues, and the former home of Elvis Presley… Graceland
My home is in an older neighborhood of Memphis, on a residential, mid-city, semi-busy street, with ample parking and is within walking distance of a library, a bus stop, the Greenline biking/walking trail, varied restaurants, and a shopping center. It is about 8 miles from downtown Memphis.
All 4 spaces at the Farmhouse are private, all have wifi access.
The property includes:
THE GRACELAND COTTAGE- a separate building behind the main house, which provides complete privacy and includes a queen bed, full private bath, kitchenette, and wifi connection.
first floor rooms…..
THE WEST MEMPHIS
two twin beds, shared bath.
THE SUN STUDIO
three twin beds, and shared bath.
THE BLUES ROOM
A sunny space on the second floor, the Blues Room has two twins, a deck in the treetops, shared bath.
You will find the accommodations at The Farmhouse will fit just about anyone's needs and budget.
You will feel like you are in the country when you enjoy the back garden, the front porch or the upper deck. When I am able, I love to visit with guests, with coffee in the morning and/or a cocktail in the evening.
My house is located two blocks from a bus stop that goes straight to Downtown Memphis. Also, a library, a shopping center, a post office. and various restaurants are within walking distance
Cooking in the main kitchen is $5/meal.. Laundry is $1 per load.
The best way to find the farmhouse is to get on Summer Ave between Highland St and Graham, and turn north on Isabelle St. At the Sonic.
Go through the Faxon intersection, coming to Tutwiler next. Turn right, my house is the third house on the left.. a two story with prayer flags hanging from the porch. Drive straight towards the back fence to park.
Never block the drive or drive on grass, please.. :)
Other Things to Note
During the Winter months, the Cottage can be difficult to keep warm because it is made of concrete. Many others have stayed comfortably, but if you are cold natured, you may want to consider the Blue Room on the second floor.
Also, please do not flush anything down the toilets that doesn't either come from your body or the toilet paper roll...My house has old plumbing. That's why public restrooms have those signs everywhere.
Dear Farmhouse Hostel Guests:

*Ask other guests, who share the bathroom, if they need to use it before you
*Close the bathroom door when you are in the bathroom, and leave it open
when you finish...
*Rinse the toothpaste out of the sink after brushing your teeth…

I never thought I'd have to say this, but Hostel guests must be appropriately
dressed in public areas, including going in and out of the bathroom.
Thanks so much for your help.
The cottage is comfortable, though the shower/bathroom is tiny. We would have appreciated more guidance in the form of signs. It was late when we arrived and the house was dark. There were no signs telling us how to proceed, where to go or what the process was. There were also no instructions on the website. We wandered around the dark parking lot for thirty minutes before discovering that the key to the cottage was just hanging in the lock. The next night this same thing happened to another couple who arrived late and didn't know what to do or where to go. Other than that, we enjoyed our stay.
The Farmhouse Graceland was in a great central location in an older neighborhood in Memphis. The cottage had everything that we needed and Patty was an excellent host! She afforded us absolute privacy but we felt certain that she would be available for any needs we might have had. We would definitely recommend the cottage to others! Thank you, Patty!
Patty made accessing the Cottage very easy in spite of our late arrival. The room and amenities were as listed. I highly recommend breakfast at Bryant's-- it's just around the corner and is cheap, fast, and has tasty biscuits!
The location was great and Patty was very nice. I enjoyed staying in the little cottage!
We stayed twice at Patty’s house. She was really nice and welcoming, and the cottage is cute. It’s located near Summer Ave, which is great to go anywhere you want. The bed was really comfortable and the place quiet. We were surprised that there was no dishes (forks, knifes, plates...) in the kitchenette, even if Patty invited us to use the kitchen in the house. Also, there was some bugs (cockroach), and she gave us a bugspray to get rid of them. Still, it’s not really great to find one running on the ceilling or the wall near the bed :/
Nonetheless we had a great time at Patty’s :)
Nous sommes restés deux fois chez Patty. Elle a été très gentille et accueillante, et le cottage est mignon. Il est non loin de Summer Ave, soit très bien situé pour aller où vous voulez. Le lit était très confortable et l'endroit très calme. Nous avons été surprises du fait que la cuisine était quasi vide (pas de fourchettes, couteaux, assiettes...) et ce même si Patty nous a invité à utiliser la cuisine de sa maison. Nous avons également croisé quelques insectes (des cafards), et elle nous a donné un spray pour nous en débarrasser. Cependant, ça n'est tout de même pas agréable d'en trouver un sur le plafond, ou sur un mur à côté du lit :/
Dans l'ensemble cela dit, nous avons passé un agréable séjour chez Patty :)
Patty had the room waiting for us as we had driven all day from Richmond, va. She also selected some great movies to watch for us as we were on our way to get married! Very thoughtful! We got on the road early the next morning and had a great sleep on an amazing mattress! We felt very safe in the neighborhood and with the gates driveway.
Cottage was as described, clean and very basic. Patty was a great hostess and promptly responded to our request for Memphis BBQ suggestions. Unfortunately we never actually met her, maybe next time. Thanks!

About the Host, Patty
I am a welcoming host, but keep in mind....
Be sure this casual environment is your cup of tea. I get plenty of wonderful, laid-back guests who love my home. If you are not laid-back, please look for something more expensive that suits you better...
I am a very liberal, open minded person, but conservatives, namely Republicans, may be put off by the environment in my home. It is my home, so be sure it works for you.. There are lots of options in Memphis to consider.
Also, the Farmhouse does not discriminate against any one except religious fanatics who judge others based on their lifestyle. This is an open and affirming home.
Guests are allowed to have coffee and to use the frig, the microwave and the toaster in the downstairs kitchen, but no cooking on the stove, or in the second floor kitchen. I decided it was too risky when folks aren't familiar with my appliances.. Sorry
