Interaction with Guests
You may sit and visit with your host on the front shaded porch and enjoy a glass of tea or an adult beverage late in the afternoon.
This is a very diversified neighborhood, middle class, located in the East quadrant of Memphis inside the I-240 loop, you are approximately 1.5 miles from the interstate system.
Although the city bus system runs near the guest house, connection to other areas of the city takes a great deal of time, therefore it is recommended that you use your own transportation. Private transportation can be somewhat expensive and sporadic.

Nothing was wrong, very nicely decorated, lots of space (pictures don't do it justice). Terry welcomed us at the door and walked us trough the house and he was very kind. Great location easy to get everywhere in Memphis using the house as a base
Unit is half of host's house with a separate entrance and no access between wings. Noises travel fairly easily between units but noise level was never a problem. It was a wonderful place to stay! Terry was welcoming, gracious, and flexible. It would be a great place to stay for an extended visit to Memphis!
Terry was a wonderful host with lots of ideas of places to visit in both Memphis and the surrounding area. The apartment was wonderfully equipped and very spacious...a home from home...ideal for 2 couples. He lives next door so was always on site if we had needed anything extra (which we didn’t). We would highly recommend this apartment, although you do need a car to get around the sights in Memphis as it is a very sprawling city and this apartment is in a residential suburb, a 5 min walk from restaurants and a shopping mall.
Our host Terry greeted us upon arrival and showed us around his beautiful home. It was very much like the pictures, even better . We felt very at home there. The yard and neighborhood was very nice and well kept. The back yard was well groomed and landscaped beautifully. We definitely would stay there again and probably will next year.
Had a great stay here! I was really happy with how close it was to the green line running trail. It was also very nice to be able to cook etc...
We enjoyed our stay in Memphis immensely. The house was clean and neat. We were very comfortable and found the house easy to live in. The kitchen was well appropriated and the towels in the bathroom were soft and fluffy. The central location was especially appreciated. Everything we wanted to see and do was easy to find and within reasonable driving distance. The well maintained neighborhood felt safe, both for us personally as well as for the car. We highly recommend the Berclair Guesthouse when visiting Memphis.
What a wonderful host! He was so responsive and helpful. You get a lot of space for the price. It is very nice to be able to sprawl out in the living room if someone else in your party is sleeping. The space is beautiful and clean. We ended up catching Terry just before we left and he made us fall even more in love with the city. His enthusiasm for Memphis is contagious and definitely made me want to visit him in Memphis again!
