About The Owner

We moved here from the city (Memphis) to slow life down a bit and get back to what matters to us - nature, peace, quiet, privacy and security. Being close enough to the city to easily commute to work and get to all the city has to offer, yet far enough out to feel like we are a million miles from civilization, this place was a perfect fit for us. We soon felt this place was too special to keep to ourselves and decided we need to share it with others.

As wanna-be homesteaders, we enjoy organic gardening, permaculture, raising chickens, keeping bees, and foraging for mushrooms and other wild edibles from the surrounding forests.

We are excited about sharing our unique place with others and hope you enjoy it as much as we do!

Relaxing stay just outside the city

  • 5 of 5

Was the perfect home for our family ranging from 19 to 82 yrs old Everyone was comfortable and relaxed. Close to Memphis attractions day trip to Shiloh, Mississippi and Arkansas. We would definitely recommend this home.

Quiet, clean, spacious

  • 5 of 5

This was our 1st visit to the Memphis area - we were visiting for a karate tournament in nearby Millington and thought it would be neat to stay near the state park.

The house itself was older - but with some recent updates. The furnishings were adequate. The plentiful coffee pods were very appreciated! The bedding/beds were very comfortable, and despite the chilly weather outside, the house was very comfortable inside. The laundry facilities also came in handy as we were traveling with 2 kids!

The WiFi was spotty - it worked for the first 12h of our stay...but not for the rest.

Be aware that this location is quite far from a regular grocery store. Coming in late on a Thursday night, we were surprised to not have any options for buying food anywhere nearby. Plan on picking up groceries well in advance as there are very limited options in the area - even during daytime hours.

However we did get to the local General Store the next morning and enjoyed their steak dinner + banjo that evening.

All in all a good/comfortable stay!

Really great location and very clean house! Great for both exploring the park and getting into MEM

  • 5 of 5

Only a 20-30 minute drive from anything in Memphis and walking/hiking trails right outside, the house is really convenient for both. We were there for a wedding in town but used the house location to explore the outdoors in the area. Easy to access and good board games await.

Appreciated the fresh eggs and availability of laundry in the home.

  • 3 of 5

The property did feel a bit far away from things. I felt a little isolated as its an unfamiliar area to me. House is nicely decorated but tub floor needs improvements.
