Enjoy A beautiful lakefront view from your bedroom. Wine on the veranda The pontoon boat is about 20 steps from the large veranda overlooking the largest lake in Shelby County! Quiet and relaxing atmosphere. Safest AND most peaceful area in West TN.

The space

Fish, swim, go boating or just sit on the huge veranda and take in the sites! We are five minutes from Memphis and all it has to offer!

My husband and I love our 400 acre lake just outside the Memphis city limits. We explore it with our Lab named Neptune every day. Great fishing and swimming! Or you can just sit on the veranda and enjoy the view with a glass of wine! Everyday is like a vacation. We are empty nesters with the entire main level of the house available for your use. Two bedrooms are on the guest level, each with an attached bathroom.

The master bedroom on the main level of the house is very spacious, with its own en suite bath and view of the lake. A large leather chair with an ottoman in the room could serve as a bed for a child or baby. This room has a queen sized bed. It also has a mini fridge, flat screen TV. Ironing board and iron, hair dryer and all possible toiletries you could need.

A huge varieties of restaurants are within 2-3 miles. The Wolfchase mall and fabulous shopping is 5 miles away!

Memphis is 3 miles away with all that Beale street and the Blues has to offer on the great Mississippi River. Visit the home of Elvis Presley, the Gibson guitar factory/store/museum or the Civil Rights Museum, or travel South to the Delta for the real birthplace of the blues.

The party boat is always ready to go for a fun time on the lake or a sunset cruise.

The larger of the two bedrooms lease for $85 per night. Small children and dogs can be discussed on a case by case basis.

Guests will have access to the entire main level of the house. This includes kitchen, family room, Bar-B-Q porch and veranda. You may park 10 feet from the front entry in the circular driveway. You have a private entrance.

We tend to let the guests decide how much interaction they want. Some guests we rarely or never see. Some we have wonderful times sharing stories while they are here and remain great friends on (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN).

The beauty of the lake and wildlife all around the lake make for a relaxing way to end a day touring all that Memphis has to offer. It's a VERY safe place to live, raise a family, or retire. It's just close enough to Memphis to have the best of both worlds!

No public transit into Memphis from our house. Car rental is pretty much a necessity.

If a rental for over four days is requested and booked there will be a %10 charge for cancellation. Otherwise, no charge

Well I can't say enough to really say how cared for I felt and relaxed by Laura and Jim's hospitality and home by the lake - it was just spot on. Shrimps on the boat and cozied up with the fire on watching Outlander just made my busy days end beautifully. I'm really looking forward to coming back :)

Stayed with Laura & Jim for our last 3 days of our road trip - lovely location and perfect for site seeing Graceland & Memphis. Comfy bed and the room was large and the veranda was so nice for morning coffee. We were treated to their signature boat ride around the lake (a must), lovely breakfasts and Laura even did a little wash for us while we were out seeing the sites! Highly recommend this airbnb place & hope to revisit someday.

Laura and Jim are terrific representatives of that smaller-city charm and Southern hospitality. Not only were they accommodating for my later than intended arrival/check-in... next morning, Laura invited me to join them for breakfast, and great conversation throughout my stay when I wanted the company. The waterfront view is good at sun up and sun down, and access to both I-40 and other Memphis arterial roadways were extremely convenient. Thanks for making my weekend visit, and subsequent eclipse chase through western Kentucky the memorable experience.

This accommodation is one of the loveliest we've ever experienced. The location is great for seeing Memphis and far enough from the city to relax. The home is beautiful and right on a pretty lake with views from throughout the house. Our room was spacious and lovely. Laura is a wonderful host and made us feel so welcome from the moment we met her. We enjoyed a ride on her boat at sunset - a particularly gorgeous one- and she is genuinely interested in her guests and provides everything imaginable for a memorable stay. We hope to return to Lakeland and Laura's true Southern hospitality!

Really enjoyed staying here! Highly recommended if you're staying in Memphis and don't want to be in the city. Beautiful views with our morning coffee and Laura and Jim made us feel right at home! Enjoyed taking the boat out and getting some stories about the locals. Our stay was very comfortable and we had a great time!

Laura User ProfileLaura is a superhost.

As a teacher with a great appreciation of individuals that enjoy expanding their horizons through travel, we have always welcomed travelers in our home. My husband is a retired judge and a private pilot. We live on a 400 acre lake and spend every afternoon exploring it with our lab, Neptune. The fishing is great as well as the swimming! Beale Street, the Elvis mansion and all that Memphis has to offer is 20 minutes away. As empty nesters we have alot of spare room.
We have a large veranda overlooking the lake where we relax, eat, or just enjoy the view with a glass of wine. The boat is always just steps away if we want some wind in our hair.
We have a second "Vacation" home in Navarre Florida where you will find the most beautiful beaches in the world! Both homes are listed on Airbnb. The Memphis home can host up to 4 people and the Florida house can host up to 8.
