About Sandra Ardis

We're animal lovers here on our farm with goats chickens horses donkeys and other livestock there is always something interesting going on.

Sandra Ardis purchased this house in 2006

Why Sandra Ardis chose Memphis

Our flagship colonial style home pays homage to the historic background of this part of the country. At risk of being torn down for a new sub division we saved this beautiful home and moved it to it's current location next to our lake. It is now just one of 4 vacation rental homes located on our 73 acre estate.

What makes this house unique

Leave the sounds of the city behind and enjoy peace & serenity inside the city limits. Wake-up relaxed in the morning to the sounds of the country life, barbecue on the grill in the afternoon with friends and family, then party downtown at night or take in a Broadway show on historic Beale street just a short drive away.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Love the comfortable beds, lovely furnishings, exceptionally clean. Your grounds have the feel of a rural setting, so lovely and relaxing. We felt very at home. Thank you so much!

Perfect house - perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful home was perfect for our Labor Day trip to visit a son and daughter in law who recently moved to Memphis. There was plenty of room for everyone - five separate bedrooms! Check in process was simple and super friendly. The kids, even all of our frown kids, loved the animals and the water. Who knew you could find seclusion in the middle of the city? We found everything we needed in the house and had lots of room to gather and enjoy.

You won't be disappointed with a stay here.

Thank you for making our trip a delight!

Country Quiet with City Accessibility

  • 5 of 5

The rooms were spacious and comfortable, the bathroom, room, and kitchen were all very clean and tidy not an item out of place as far as I could tell. The bed was heavenly, slept like a baby.

Thumbs up!

  • 5 of 5

My Wife and 3 daughters stayed for a week and had all the conveniences of home.

I couldn't be happier! The home was clean & well-furnished it exceeded our expectations. The location was great for all the things we wanted to do in Memphis. Plenty of room for the girls to play outside in the huge yard, they even got to feed the catfish at the lake and the newest baby donkey in the barn. We reserved the pool and took the girls swimming in the pool several times, a highlight of our stay. We also bought a dozen of their farm fresh eggs and really enjoyed them, so much better than store bought! Lake House Memphis owners are very helpful, professional, and efficient. Check-in was easy and everything was in order and ready when we arrived. The Home is just minutes away from anything you need restaurants, stores, big mall, parks everything went so smooth it made the time we spent in Memphis very relaxing! They also had muffins, fresh fruit, tea and coffee waiting for us when we checked in. I will definitely use Lake House Memphis for my next trip.

Womens Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Ten woman from my sorority stayed at this beautiful home for our annual retreat. We were from all over the country so this location was a central meeting place. The home was clean, well decorated and roomy. It was in a beautiful country setting with a lake and farm animals close by. We so enjoyed strolling around the property. When we wanted to enjoy the Memphis scene we were only 15-20 minutes from the downtown area. We enjoyed the music, the BBQ was to die for and Beale street was a blast. Sandy, the manager was very nice and accommodating. The beds were comfy but we got little sleep as we laughed through the night reminiscing about old times. We will definitely book this place again.

Absolutely wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I, along with our five adult kids and two of their spouses, stayed for a weekend in the lake house. The kitchen alone was worth the stay--very spacious, with a sitting area and dining room. We spent most of our time there! Easy access to everything in Memphis with a feel of being out in the country side. Even though my kids are adults (barely), they had a blast with the intercoms and paddle boats. We'll definitely rent again the next time we come to Memphis!
