Wonderful. Spacious. Convenient to Memphis.

  • 5 of 5

We were welcomed with a card that thanked us for choosing The Cedars. Another card and balloon congratulated our daughter on her graduation from UT College of Pharmacy. Such personalized care. The Cedars is very open and spacious for a 10 year old, a 5 year-old, and a 3 year-old. A very spacious kitchen with a large island that allows 10 people to congregate and enjoy munching down on snacks and drinks. The living area is large with two game tables for everything from checkers to pinochle, dominos, and uno. Large bedrooms downstairs and a large sitting area with bedroom and kitchenette upstairs. Our group consisted of four families, one an elderly couple aged 89 and 82. We were able to travel to Memphis each day during our visit to eat, go to the Memphis Zoo, visit the Bass Pro Pyramid, and enjoy Beale Street. We would highly recommend The Cedars and would stay there again in the future. Lastly, not enough can be said about the help and hospitality of Jane Pirani, the owner.

This house is beautiful, well maintained and has everything you need.

  • 5 of 5

There were five in our group, family and friends. The house is beautiful and spacious with a huge kitchen, which we spent a lot of time in chatting, having drinks, coffee and even cooking a little,(mostly breakfasts, because we had to check out the barbecue in Memphis!).

Jane left a basket of snacks and a bottle of wine with a card thanking us for choosing the Cedar's. Also in the kitchen were recommendations of restaurants and activities in the area. We were able to check in a little earlier then 4:00. Thank you for that Jane.

This property is 10 to 15 minutes from downtown Memphis. We enjoyed going to Graceland, Beale Street, the Peabody, the Bass Pro Shop and

went on a riverboat cruise, and really enjoyed coming back to the house to relax.

The only downside of our trip was not meeting Jane as she had a summer cold and didn't want to give it to us, which we appreciate.

If we do another Memphis trip, we will definitely stay here again. We loved it!

Thank you Jane for your hospitality.

beautiful house in a great location so close to memphis.

  • 5 of 5

We drove the short distance to Memphis for the excitement and returned to the Cedars for the elegance and relaxation. Grocery store and restaurants so close and we made good use of the grill and decks. Jane has stocked the house in abundance with everything you will need. Thank you so much Jane for a wonderful experience!

The Perfect Family Gathering Place

  • 5 of 5

We gathered the whole family (children and grandchildren) to celebrate our 38th anniversary at the Cedars. It was a beautiful house with accommodations for all. Jane, the owner, was wonderful. She made sure that we had everything that we needed - high chair and booster seat - as well as surprising us with a beautiful bouquet of flowers for our anniversary. I highly recommend The Cedars to anyone wishing to experience true southern hospitality.
