Kate’s House combines the cozy accommodations of a bnb with the unique style of this 1928 Parkway mansion. Add to that the Memphis music and cultural focus and you have the coolest place to stay while you’re in Memphis.
Privately nestled in the back of a 1.7 acre lot, the gated grounds are dotted with multiple outdoor spaces. Sip your morning coffee on the one of three porches while enjoying a different view of the grand old trees we cherish. In the evenings, take your favorite libation outside and enjoy the magical transition of the grounds from day to night.
Inside the 7800 square feet house you'll find five private bedrooms, each with their own adjacent full bathroom. The grand entrance, dining and living rooms on the first floor are open and you’re welcome to land anywhere you like. There are 4 private bedrooms upstairs, a bedroom on the main floor with private bath, and a finished basement area available to our guests. You have access to the common areas… Living room, kitchen, grand entrance, dining room, patios, and porches and the grounds.
Though this is our primary home, we strive to create an environment that is welcoming to everyone. We work to give every guest the experience they are looking for in Memphis. We want your expectations to be surpassed...whether it’s your first time to Memphis, a much needed return, a business trip or you’re here for some other really cool reason. We will do everything we can to help you see, eat, hear and experience the Memphis that you’re looking for.
The home sits on one of Memphis' historic Parkways and is close to three of the hottest entertainment districts in Midtown, 5 miles from downtown, 10 minutes from the airport no matter what time of day (unless there is a U of M football game- in that case, take alternate route to and from airport). The mansion is located in one of the most prime locations in the City of Memphis.
Arriving late? Let us know and we will make sure you have some food and your beverage of choice waiting for you.
We live on the property the majority of the year, and retreat to a second home when the house is fully rented. We greet our guests, tour the house and grounds and answer any questions they may have about gates, security codes etc...Once guests are comfortable we give them their privacy but we are available 24/7 should anyone need anything.
Two car garage available upon request for a nominal fee.
The property is fenced and secured.
I am a native Memphian and live in a palatial home in the heart of midtown. We love our home and our community. We are passionate about Memphis and host guests through air bnb because we want to give visitors the experience they are looking for while in our beloved hometown.
We strive to give everyone the information and tools to explore the city. Our home is a safe, inviting and unforgettable space to enjoy when they need to call it a day. We encourage our gusts to see Memphis, but we have common gathering spaces in the home which lends itself to travel stories and good conversation.
Our musician friends and family visit our home often so every once in a while, guests will get to enjoy a house concert.
We have a small dog named Mrs. Pickles. She is very sweet and wants to get to know everyone that arrives. If you're allergic or absolutely hate dogs, we can make arrangements for her to stay with her granny.
Please feel free to send me any questions you have about Memphis or our home. I love talking about both.
Happy and safe travels to all...
