Notes: lists a calendar of most of the current events in Memphis. Also, Memphis, Egypt of the Nile, has 27 historical markers downtown that make for a good walking trail to highlight our city. Our Pyramid, recently bought by Bass Pro, is the only one like it of it's kind in the country. check out Stax & Sun recording studios Also the entertainment districts at Overton Square and Cooper Young have a variety of restaurants and theater for nice dinner and cocktails. Our personal recommendations are Downtown, Gus' world famous Fired Chicken on Front street Fried Mushrooms at the Flying Saucer near Beale Cocktails at the Beauty Shop in Cooper Young Cafe Soul Fish in Cooper Young Paulette's in Harbor town Downtown, formal dining

Nice house with a lot of space.

  • 4 of 5

The Shaw was a great house for our group of 15. There was more than enough space and parking for our four families. The downside was the cost. It was nearly $1800 for 3 nights after all of the fees that are attached. The house is about 30 minutes from downtown Memphis. Overall, it was a nice home and they even provided some snacks and drinks for us.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for choosing to stay with us during your "Liberty Bowl Event" and congratulations on your win. We are glad to know that you found our home accommodating to not only your large group, but your vehicles as well. That extra driveway has often provided boat parking space for our guests. Because you were here during a special event traffic was terrible and getting in and out of downtown probably added 10-15 minutes to your trip. The fees charged by VRBO/Homeaway cannot be helped as they are government imposed and your stay was "Peak Season", however, when you calculate the costs of several hotel rooms and overnight parking fees at a hotel, not to mention the security, ambience, and kitchen facilities; well we did our best to offer a competitive quote. Next time your are in Memphis if you mention this stay we will gladly add one nights stay free to your paid reservation. We hope we gave you the personal attention you deserve and thank you again.

So much better than a hotel.

  • 4 of 5

The house is even better than it looks in the photos.

There was plenty of room for the 11 of us (4 couples and 3 young adults) to be together, and for everyone to have a pretty much private sleeping area.

We were only there for 3 days, which we were in Memphis most of the time, so we didn't get to take full advantage of all of the amenities that the place has to offer, from a pool table to board games and cards, and outdoor fire pits, there are more than enough activities.

Linda (the owner) is a very friendly person and offered us insider tips about where to eat and how to get around. Also, I talked to her during the booking process and told her we would be in town for our parents 50th anniversary, when we arrived, we were delighted to see that Linda had gone out of her way to leave a gift in my parents room, how thoughtful is that!

The property is in the country down a couple of curvy roads but it's only a few miles, and is in a clean and well kept area.

Don't use the microwave if you have the griddle running, it will trip the breaker.

This really is a home away from home, and we would highly recommend it.

Above and beyond

The Shaw house is perfect. Our family was in the area for a week and it kept us comfortable the entire time. The Shaws are very accommodating and made our vacation the best it could be!

Great weekend

  • 4 of 5

We had a crew of 16. The house accommodated us easily. All had a place to sleep - cots, rollaways & air mattresses in addition to the beds. All could eat at a table. It was a challenge with only 2 bathrooms, but we managed. The place was well stocked with snacks & drinks.(Best I have experienced) Linda went above and beyond, even to the extent of bringing a fire stick so we could watch the Clemson game! She was readily available - and so cheerful!
