Bra beliggenhet

Built in 1922, the house is in the Evergreen Historic District in Midtown Memphis. It has a private living room with a gas fireplace, bedroom, en-suite bathroom with shower and bathtub large enough for a soak, wraparound porch, 10' ceilings, original woodwork and oak floors, 4 French doors, glass-front bookcase, large set of windows, and the world’s most comfortable king-size bed (really). A comfortable trundle bed is also available for the living room, and there's an ashtray out on the porch.

Stedet
The entrance is private and takes you into a suite which is completely yours. There is a fireplace in the living room for chilly nights, and a large screen TV with DVD and VCR in the cabinet below. If you want to relax after seeing the sights, there are some movies in the bookcase, or feel free to bring something you haven’t had time to watch. The double recliner is perfect for long movies, or just relaxing by the fireplace. If you’d rather read, there are some choices in the glass-front bookcase and a comfortable antique rocker in front of it.

On beautiful days, you can open the latch and regular windows (with sheers for privacy), and all curtains are lined.

A set of French doors opens into the bedroom. A table/desk with a case for jewelry, etc., can serve as a place to throw things, hold a suitcase, a spot for a computer, or a vanity. There are a variety of pillows as everyone has their own pillow thing. You can surround yourself with them on the bed or build a fort. The bed is very roomy and you can even enter your vote for the world’s most comfortable bed competition. Even the chair in the bedroom is extremely comfy (doesn't always happen with antiques).

You’re welcome to park in the garage or behind the house. Follow the stepping stones in the side yard to the south side of the front porch, with easy keypad entry. The wraparound porch has an old-style glider, chairs and table for coffee, lunch, or glass of wine. There are restaurants within blocks to bring something back to eat outside if you like.

You can walk to 3 very good places to eat: The Bar-B-Q Shop (you’ll be glad you did), India Palace, and/or Casablanca (Middle Eastern, and pick up a bottle of olive oil from the owner’s father’s farm back home). You can even catch a play about 3 blocks from the house. There are other restaurants in the immediate neighborhood, but those are some of the best.

You’ll have the essentials for coffee, tea, hot chocolate, and fruit, an ashtray on the porch, and a mini-fridge and microwave for all your leftovers. The bath has various and sundry toiletries in the cabinet and medicine cabinet if you forget anything.

Gjestetilgang
Along with the suite being all yours, that includes the entrance, porch, and outdoor furniture to kick back in. Parking is in the back in the garage or next to the back stairs, and the path to the front door is in the side yard (south). Or out front is fine, too. There are 3 steps up onto the porch, and with the keypad door, no worry about getting keys, and after 3:00, you can arrive whenever you like.

Andre ting det er verdt å merke seg
A few more details on spiffy places and things to do nearby:
Overton Square: eat-shop-enjoy/ Numerous restaurants and bars, a ballet company, four playhouses, outdoor concerts, festivals (including a crawfish festival, even), indoor music, movie theater, an olive oil store (really), other interesting shops, and lots of nightlife, especially on the weekends. There is also an old style candy shop (a straight shot to your childhood) with coffee and ice cream, too.

Cooper-Young neighborhood (motto - Historically Hip): even more restaurants, bars, and interesting shops. There is a cat shop on Cooper and you’re welcome to go in and pet until your arm falls off and play with kittens. It’s a rescue (you need another cat) and they do take donations if you’re so inclined. The name is House of Mews, but you’ll know you’re there when you see all the cat-sized baskets in the picture windows with a leg hanging out here and there.

There is a plaque in Cooper-Young where Johnny Cash had his 1st show, and Burke's Book Store (1875) is a great place to get lost – extensive and interesting selection of books, used, rare, and collectibles.

From there, walk north on Cooper 2 miles to Overton Park. The Zoo is almost 80 acres (park = 340), Brooks Museum of Art is there in a beautiful old building, and all are welcome at the golf course, hackers, too. The park is the largest old-growth forest (over 10,000 years) (really) in a city in the United States, and has nice paths for walking or biking.

Additionally, the fab Levitt Band shell is in the park. There are free and nearly weekly live concerts from around the end of May through the fall. Hundreds of people turn out, but there is plenty of room. We saw Lucinda Williams last year, and the shell is also the site of Elvis’ 1st paid show (1954) as a teenager. There are places to sit if you don’t have a blanket. Bring a picnic and a bottle of wine.

And get the wine a block from the house at Joe’s Liquors, great selection of wine, beer, and liquor, complete with aficionado employees. Two blocks from the house, and you can’t miss its restored neon Sputnik sign.

If you go downtown (to select from the many restaurants), be sure to stop for a drink in the lobby of the beautiful Peabody Hotel, and be there just before 5:00 pm. If not, stop by before 11 am. You’ll have to find out why yourself, it’s great and definitely unusual. Actually, you’ll come across a number of unusual things in Memphis. I was once in the Peabody lobby, and an Elvis tribute artist was on one knee singing to a group of (just slightly, of course) older women in town for a Baptist Church convention. Memphis also has a beautiful 1928 Renaissance-style theater downtown, the Orpheum. You can see Broadway shows, etc.

A walkable distance from the house is Crosstown Concourse, where you can eat, get ice cream (Area 51 ice cream, even), or coffee in a renovated 1.5 million sq. ft. (really) former Sears distribution-center-turned-community that’s now packed with shops, businesses, a contemporary art center, nonprofits, fitness center, high school, 265 apts., a large medical area, and on and on. It's a great vertical community to visit in the summer when you’re looking for extensive air conditioning.

One of the things we like best about Memphis and Midtown is the wonderful variety of houses, it definitely reflects Memphis’ character. If you feel like cruising around, there are beautiful mansions, shotgun houses, many craftsman-built homes and cottages, and even a few castles. It’s worth taking the side streets, and Central Gardens (Midtown) and Chickasaw Gardens (a tad east) are the most beautiful neighborhoods, and downtown’s Mud Island (really) is also full of interesting houses.

Need to pick up some things? There are 4 grocery stores within blocks. From upscale Fresh Market on Union, to Cash Saver on Madison. It's an older store practically across the street from the house, character and lower prices included, with an impressive selection of import beers and a growler bar. Two Kroger's, and Dollar Store across the street, too. What more could you ask?

There are 3 cats on the property, gray, black, and white. Feel free to pet if you like, and they may try to tell you they’re allowed in the suite, but they lie.

Beliggenhet

Memphis, Tennessee, USA

The Evergreen District is in the middle of pretty much everything. The house is a quick 4 min. drive to the hopping Overton Square Entertainment District; 7 mins. to the Cooper Young neighborhood (more restaurants, shops, character included); 5 mins. to Sun Records where rock and roll was born, and Elvis, Johnny Cash, Carl Perkins, Jerry Lee Lewis, B.B. King, Ike Turner, and others recorded; 10 mins. to the renowned Beale Street - 150 years of the world’s best blues; 11 minutes to the Stax Museum of American Soul Music, NBA basketball, baseball stadium, and Smithsonian affiliate: the National Civil Rights Museum. Another “don’t miss” south from downtown: your soul may be saved by soul-music-legend-turned-Bishop Al Green at his fabulous Full Gospel Tabernacle Church. An 18 min. drive, and wear your dancing shoes. (But you'll be put to shame by an 80-year-old.)

There's more. It’s just 6 mins. to the Broad Ave. District with art galleries, very interesting shops and restaurants, outdoor concerts and yet more character; 6 mins. to downtown Memphis with dozens of restaurants, a jaw-dropping 60-story pyramid on the river (really), go inside, and the South Main arts District; the beautiful Brooks Art Gallery is a mile away in Overton Park (1901), a huge and fantastic city park with an old growth forest (yes, trails), golf course, the Memphis Zoo, a bark-park, and Memphis College of Art; a 13 min. drive to amazing Graceland; 15 to the airport.

Even at just the end of our block is a nice restaurant with patio service (Ecco), with a few more steps to Atomic Tiki. (Might be good for what ails you.)
Go north on Avalon to get there, and you'll know if you went south instead, because you'll be in a car wash.

I am your primary host. Was a teacher, still do so p/t now, have been in Memphis almost 25 years, and am in the process of becoming an Airbnb magnate. I am sure it will be fabulous due to the charming and tasteful guests who would choose our site. Like to travel, so also like meeting people from different places if you’re interested in a chat, but it's also perfectly fine if your vacation is an escape from people for a bit. And I suppose the thing I wouldn't want to live without would be chocolate. Mark does software project management and his primary interest is the cosmos. He would give an arm for a trip on a rocket going anywhere in outer space. Personally, the only way you would get me on a rocket is unconscious. Also, please feel welcome to stop Mark with a question or something you need, or if you can’t get me on the phone. He’s very amiable. We’re both originally from Iowa, where amiability is required, and have lived other places since.

We provide lots of information on things to do and places to go (with related websites) in the information on the coffee "table" and end table. And keep reading, you'll be glad you did.

We live upstairs and are here and so are here to help with whatever you need, answer questions, provide recommendations, etc. Feel free to call, or text through Airbnb.
