About this home

The Magnolia House is considered by many to be the #1 luxury vacation rental in West Tennessee. This lovely, completely remodeled home is located in a quite, historic neighborhood overlooking the peaceful Overton Park. The setting is perfect for weekend get-aways, family reunions, vacations or just to relax and enjoy the wonderful amenities surrounding you, all within walking distance....people travel from all around to enjoy over 50 free concerts a year at the outdoor amphitheater, the Levitt Shell (where Elvis first played!), also the Memphis Zoo (ranked one of the top zoos in the United States) can be viewed from this home, the wonderful Brooks Art Museum (the largest art museum in Tennessee) is also within walking distance. The Park also offers a 9-Hole City Golf Course, entrance to the Shelby Farms Greenline for biking or walking(which is a 6.5 mile biking path and connects midtown to Shelby Farms Park), fantastic new playground and also a pond for watching ducks and fish. Do not forget your picnic basket, frisbee and a kite for a leisurely day outside!

The home is very secure with automatic gated entrance. Very safe neighborhood for walking and strolling to the Zoo, the Levitt Shell Amphitheater or the Brooks Art Museum. High speed internet is offered as well.

The newly renovated Overton Square is a few blocks away with some of the best restaurants in the City! German, Japanese, Mexican, Cajun, Italian food can all be found in this great area! We would love to recommend some of our favorites! Also, a great place to find nightlife...many bars with restaurants open late and even Lafayette's Music Room and The Zebra Lounge with a piano bar! If you are into theater, Playhouse on The Square, The new Hattiloo Theater and The Circuit Playhouse are located in this area. Also, in close proximity is the Cooper Young area, where there is another wide range of great restaurants. If you are a "foodie" or love visiting breweries, you will LOVE this area as well!

The Home is also very close to downtown where you will find the world famous Beale Street with much nightlife, Sun Studios, the well-known Peabody Hotel with their famous daily, duck parade, the Gibson Guitar Museum, the Fed-Ex Forum where many great concerts are held and the Memphis Grizzlies play, the Redbirds Baseball Stadium, and also the not to be missed newly opened Bass Pro Shop (largest Bass Pro in the United States and located in The Pyramid overlooking the great Mississippi River). One can not leave the City without sampling our world-famous barbecue. The Rendezvous and Central Barbecue are both very close!

The list goes on and much to see and do in The City! This home, however, was remodeled and designed by an interior designer and is a wonderful place just to sit back, relax and enjoy its upscale amenities!

We love our city and hope that you will come and embrace all that it has to offer!

    Great Memphis experience

    Our three couple group came from north, east and west to enjoy a wonderful long weekend in Memphis. This home was the perfect base as it is next to a beautiful park, has easy access to downtown and a wonderful layout for hanging out and talking. The house is well furnished and the kitchen well stocked. Everything was clean and the beds very comfortable. No better place to stay in Memphis. Thank you Elizabeth.

    Beautiful Memphis Experience

    Elizabeth has created an amazing VRBO experience that should not be missed. The house is very well decorated and from the moment you walk in you feel at home. We arrived to lights on, music playing, and a delicious cake! I would say our stay was perfect!

    Breathtaking Memphis!

    To say our stay was amazing would be an understatement. The property had such southern charm ranging from the columns out front through the interior touches flowing into the restful backyard area. It was maintained incredibly and it was so comforting to sit and listen to the trees on the front porch and in the backyard passing the day away. The owners were responsive and provided little touches including fresh flowers that were planted and even a cake for my son's college graduation. The location across the street from the Zoo and Overton Park worked perfectly to tire hour little ones out. We are all thankful for our wonderful relaxing stay away from home!!

    Real Southern Hospitality

    Classically decorated 1 level home with priceless vintage pieces, & convenient location. The Owner communicates well throughout, and left every goodie one could imagine or desire on a trip! Excellent literature placed in the home about the neighborhood history, and things to do throughout Memphis. The Owner went above & beyond to ensure guests enjoy themselves, and we did. Southern Hospitality at its finest!
