Unlike some B&B's you have total and complete privacy in your own guest house suite, and in addition, you have shared access to the dock, lake, covered patio, gas grill, and electric smoker. It is a private lake so no license is required for fishing off the dock, and we have fishing poles you can borrow!
It was designed with a 450 sq ft studio on the east side of the building facing the driveway, and there is a smaller area on the west side of the building facing the lake that is storage (where the hot water heater, furnace, fishing equipment, and etc is stored). ***There is not a window in the guest house that provides a lake view except a small window by the bed with a partial view of the lake*** We've added some seating on the covered deck outside the storage for more privacy if you want to relax and enjoy the lake. We also have a hammock for you to enjoy near the lake. And off the back of the main house is the covered cement patio with the grill, smoker, seating, & etc that you are more than welcome to enjoy as well. Entry to the yard or patio is through the small gate near the patio or through the large gate on the south side of the guest house. ***There is not direct entry to the lake front from the guest house; entry is through the gates only***
I will be as involved or as invisible as you'd like during your stay.
What you can expect: A family atmosphere - We have a dog (Joe) who is a border collie mix, and 1 elderly cat that ventures out on the patio on occasion (Mario). Myself (Marcie), my husband (Mike), and our 11 yr old daughter (Savannah) live in the main house.
Cleanliness - The guesthouse is cleaned thoroughly, and bedding washed after each guest and we have Terminix services
Respect - 'Nuff' said.
Attention - I work your standard 8-5 Mon-Fri, but I will be available via phone/email if you need to contact me, and Mike is at home most of the day as well. You won't be ignored; unless you request it. :o)
Information - Just let me know what it is, and I'll do my best to help you get anything you need during your stay: recommendations, food items, transportation, etc. Everything from helping you plan your day in Memphis - to relaxing by the lake.
Airplanes - We are located very close to the airport. We have grown accustom to FedEx flying their planes at 3am every night, but many of you may find it a bit loud. Suggestions would be: bring ear plugs (we try to keep some stocked in the bathroom drawer), leave the TV on, bring your sound machine (there's a small one in the night stand), or stay out way too late & make yourself so tired you don't hear a thing ;-)
Sunsets - you can expect some spectacular ones.
Wikipedia defines a B&B as: A bed and breakfast (or B&B) is a small lodging establishment that offers overnight accommodation and breakfast, but usually does not offer other meals.
I personally, am not much of a morning person, and Mon-Fri I leave the house around 7am. So a hearty home-cooked breakfast shouldn't be expected. However, I'll stock your room with some of your favorite snack items! Just pick a few and let me know what they are: a box of your favorite cereal & cold skim milk, a bunch of ripe bananas, a bag of potato chips & your favorite soda, chocolate covered peanuts, or whatever you like. And if your heart is set on pancakes and bacon, biscuits, scrambled eggs, or omelets on a Sat or Sun morning, just let me know and I'll set my alarm. ;-)
