About Tammy Parker

Design, art and music are my favorites just after my three children! With my children all grown up, I've decided to share this peaceful space with other travelers. Memphis is a graceful & easy place to be, which describes my life here in my hometown.

Tammy Parker purchased this bungalow in 1981

Guestbook comments from the manager

Hi, Tammy,

Sorry for the slow response. We had such a good time in your wonderful house! We loved the warmth & artfulness & welcoming feel, and we really loved having a piano to play again! And Memphis was a delight--my husband said it was one of his top 5 birthdays. We owe it all to your great guide to Memphis, which sent us from the Cotton Museum to the Peabody ducks to a walking tour with Jimmy Ogle to the Mississippi River model (swan paddle boats and all) to Sun Studio.

My daughter just reminded me to apologize for eating up your last few carrots! We had dinner fixings our first night but no vegetables, and I completely forgot to replace them. My apologies!

Warm wishes to you,

Apr 2015

We enjoyed everything about our vacation in Memphis, including this home!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic week in Memphis visiting our daughter/ sister. The house was so comfortable and the location is perfect. We really couldn't have asked for more. The next time we visit Mollie, we will certainly try to get this home for our stay!

Great 1920's era bungalow in Midtown Memphis. Close to zoo & Overton Park.

  • 5 of 5

Lovely 1920's restored home. Very cozy and inviting, complete with a fully stocked kitchen. We enjoyed having coffee in the morning on the front porch. Tammy was very receptive and accommodating to our questuons.

She gave us a list of her favorite Menphis eateries and other happenings. Wonderful weekend in Memphis.
