About the property

This is a separate large one-bedroom upstairs apartment with tall ceilings, spacious rooms and marvelous mantels. It has a beautifully renovated bedroom in the upstairs turret with a lovely private balcony overlooking the corner of Cooper & Young. The large living room has a sofa sleeper, a Lazy-Boy recliner, a new 49” TV with 300W Bluetooth sound bar. The rain shower is brand new. There is a full kitchen with all appliances, cookware, utensils, and all the comforts of home. But who wants to cook with over a dozen restaurants and bars literally right outside the window?

This large 1 bedroom apartment is in the historic Captain Harris House, circa 1898. With its asymmetrical massing, round two-and-one-half story turret, wrap-around verandah, bay windows and contrasting wall textures, the Capt. Harris House is often considered the best example of a Queen Anne Victorian house in Memphis. In 1979, it became one the first Memphis residences to be placed on the National Register of Historic Places. This is the flagship home of the thriving Cooper Young district of Midtown Memphis. We are within one block of 12 restaurants and bars, one mile down the Cooper Corridor from Overton Square and its dozen or so restaurants, shops, theaters, and bars, and about 5 miles to downtown to the west and the airport to the south. This is a very large apartment with big rooms, tall ceilings, and stately mantels. There is live music some nights across the street. It is a fun and dynamic place subject to the sounds of the city and the vibrant energy and activity of Memphis’ liveliest neighborhood.

We also supply snacks and drinks. It is supplied with soap, shampoo, conditioner, lotion, and hair dryer. We probably can supply whatever else may be needed.

Best place to stay in Memphis

  • 5 of 5

Honestly I think this is the best VRBO/Airbnb property in Memphis. The house is absolutely incredible, and the hosts are so nice! I can into town for two days for work, and Chip helped me bring in all my heavy work equipment, despite it raining. There was a binder full of info about Memphis, along with great places to eat and explore. They also included a free basket of snacks, which helped tremendously during my busy work schedule. The house is truly historic and a great place to stay, I'd be happy to recommend it to anyone.

This is a beautiful apartment with a cute balcony that over looks Young Ave Deli and the street.

  • 5 of 5

It was a very peaceful stay with lots of things to do in the neighborhood. Young Ave. Deli is directly across the street and it was nice to sit on the balcony. The bed is very comfortable. The place is just beautiful. The shower is very nice and large. I will be staying here again in the future.

Amazing find!! Gorgeous property, Perfect Location and we LOVED it!!!!

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful property has so much character. You can imagine being a guest in the 1800's, except with Netflix and the owners thought of anything you might need! I felt completely at home and safe. We simply LOVED this property. The pictures do not do it justice, it is beautiful. You can walk around the corner for a delicious brunch and check out the kitty cat adoption center (watch them play in the window). The owner of the Captian Harris House was very sweet and welcomed us upon our arrival. This was a special find and made our trip! We will be back and let our friends know to stay no other place but the Captain Harris House!!
