Ditto to Graham M. from MD. But there is even more to say about this beautiful home and host.

The host, Jane, is very responsive, making sure our travels and directions got us to the house safely; even emailing me the night before notifying me of an early check-in. She checked on us during our stay and followed up at the end of our trip.

We celebrated my fiancee's 50th birthday with decade long friends from OH, MO and GA. Memphis was a good drivable meeting spot for everyone. I purposely didn't send pictures or links to the rental because I wanted everyone to be surprised......... and they were. The home is more beautiful than the pictures can depict.

Like many of our trips, I provide a detailed itinerary of our stay (menus and mealtimes, excursions and/or anticipated games). I chuckled and knew the schedule would have to become more flexible when I recieved text messages from everyone notifying me of their delay to breakfast because of the very comfortable bed (high thread count sheets). The plans both Friday and Sunday night were cut short because everyone wanted to get back to the house to enjoy it.

I've stayed at numerous rental homes/cabins, but this is by far the best. The balconies outside each room, allowed everyone time amongst themselves but also yet another place to gather in smaller groups. I decided to wait until I arrived to shop for additional necessities (spices, condiments, toiletries etc....) but to my surprise, I didn't need any. There was a variety of cookware, spices and condiments available for our use. Each sink (counted 7) was supplied with handsoap and other toiletries you would find welcoming you in a hotel.

I definitely recommend this home for anyone traveling to Memphis or Marion AR.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your positive review. I am always so happy to hear that people are pleased with the extras we try to provide. Many guests say they spend less time doing things in Memphis because they enjoy just hanging out at The Cedars! Since this was a good meeting spot for your group, I hope that you will come back many times!

Beautiful house minutes from Memphis

  • 5 of 5

The house is absolutely gorgeous and is in close proximity to Memphis, located in the quiet and charming town of Marion.

The house was easy to find and gain entry to, thanks to the excellent instructions and directions provided by the owner, Jane. Upon walking up the steps to the main entry, we were greeted with the massive and beautiful foyer. Jane also surprised us with a thoughtfully written welcome card and set of snacks and waters, and recommendations for restaurants and activities. The entire first floor has high ceilings and beautiful furnishings.

The kitchen and dining area was more than large enough to accommodate our family of 8. The kitchen is well-furnished with two stove-tops/ovens, three sinks, and a large island. There is ample cookware to do pretty much any type of cooking you need to here! There's also plenty of basic ingredients (i.e. spices, flour, etc.). There's also a Keurig with a supply of k-cups.

Opposite the dining area is a large sitting area with multiple couches, tables, etc. to just relax and unwind with your family and friends. There's also a large balcony with a grill and an outside dining area.

There are also three bedrooms on the first floor. My wife & I stayed in the large master bedroom, with an en-suite bathroom, and balcony and greatly enjoyed the accommodations, including the very comfortable king-sized bed.

Upstairs is a second smaller living room area with an adjoining kitchenette, bathroom, and additional bedroom with balcony. The living room also has a trundle bed if needed.

The Wi-Fi worked absolutely flawlessly throughout our stay and the TV/DVD players all functioned. We had an initial issue locating one of the remotes for the cable box; however, when we notified Jane, she personally delivered a replacement remote and welcomed us to the house.

In summary, we highly enjoyed our stay in this beautiful property. We enthusiastically recommend this property and would stay here again without hesitation when our travels bring us back to Memphis.

Loved the place

  • 5 of 5

The location of the house was perfect for all of the activities we wanted to do in Memphis. It was close enough to get there quickly but far enough away from the noise and traffic. Marion is a cute little enclave outside of Memphis. The house is awesome if you have a large group of people traveling together. It's perfect for kids too since they have a lot of games and some open space to run around. Jane was kind and checked on us to make sure everything was perfect for our visit. We would definitely recommend this location if you have a large group and want to be comfortable and hang out together.
