About the property

Best Location in Memphis! Newly Renovated 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 weddings, 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 alarm and automatic gated entrance with 2-car garage. Very safe neighborhood for walking and strolling to the Zoo, the Levitt Shell Amphitheater or the Brooks Art Museum. High speed internet AND Cable TV 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!

Gorgeous property, great location, everything we needed for our wedding weekend. Our adult kids had a great time staying in the house. Our guests enjoyed everything about the backyard ceremony and the venue. Really couldn't have picked a better spot. Elizabeth was great to work with. Would highly recommend.

Beautiful home, Great location!

  • 5 of 5

We used the Magnolia house to celebrate my son's Medical School graduation and his wedding. It was the perfect location to be the central site for the family gatherings. The home is beautifully decorated and extremely comfortable. Morning coffee in backyard was a perfect start to our day! We would highly recommend the home to anyone. Thank you Elizabeth and Mike for your hospitality !

Rhodes Graduation

  • 5 of 5

We were here with family for a graduation. It is a great location. 5 minutes from Rhodes. 3 minutes to a Starbucks or a Kroger. 5 minutes to Memphis Pizza and a number of other good restaurants we had eaten at before. Euclid Cafe is right down the street (3 minutes) for breakfast/brunch and pastries to go. Poplar and Madison are 1 and 2 blocks away and both take you right downtown. Coffee and Kuerig were provided and both were great! (sorry we drank so much of it!) We arrived late on a Thursday night and Elizabeth accommodated us. AC works great, thank goodness! And it was nice and chilly when we arrived. The cookies hit the spot after being on the road for six hours. It is a beautiful house. We hit Memphis during high pollen time so we did not spend much time out side. The house is on a pretty private street so there was no noise at night. We could faintly hear the concert at the Levitt Shell when we arrived. We did have good time at the house and would definitely stay again. Son is working in Memphis now so we will stay again when we go for a visit.
