Raise your hand if you LOVE a staycation!
Anytime I can have a relaxing time in my own city, I am all for it. This year marked my husband and I’s 2 year wedding anniversary. Time flies! We love getting away together, but this year we had so much going on. Renovating a new house is a full time job in itself, and pairing my husbands last few months of Endodontics school left us needing a getaway, but we didn’t want to leave Memphis. Thankfully this city has so much charm and history, so it wasn’t hard for us to find a great place for a staycation.
The minute we came across The Guest House At Graceland, we had made our decision. Not only had my husband Brandon and I never stayed at The Guest House, we also had never been to Graceland ( I know I know, I KNOW!!!). To say we were excited for this get away was an understatement.
In 2016 The Guest House At Graceland opened, and visitors from all over the world were pining for a room. We knew why the minute we arrived.
When we got to the Guest house, we dropped off our bags and headed straight to Graceland. One of the perks of the guest house is that it’s within walking distance to Graceland .
Visiting Graceland and seeing all that Elvis achieved in such a short time was truly remarkable. He had so much talent, such a drive, and last but not least what a giver he was!
After visiting the world of the king of rock and roll, we walked back to The Guest House to check in.
Upon our arrival, we noticed instantly the care and detail that went I to designing and decorating this place. You could almost imagine Elvis just walking around, or sitting at the piano playing one of his hits. When we arrived to our room, we were greeted by total luxury and comfort. The bed was soft, the bathroom and shower large, and last but least we had our very own sitting room. The decor constantly reminded us of where we were, in Elvis’s detailed, vibrant and exciting world.
Happy hour down at the bar was a total hit, and dinner at The Delta Kitchen did not disappoint.
The atmosphere was upscale yet relaxing, and the service was wonderful. We started out with and cheddar biscuits (to die for) and sipped on craft cocktails.
For our entrees, I went for the salmon with a colorful plate of steamed veggies on the side. Brandon went for scallops with truffle corn puree. For dessert we chose S’mores Lava Cake. Can you say YUM!?
We left the restaurant so impressed by the food and the staff. Everything had just been wonderful. I would highly recommend staying here again! Thank you so much to The Guest House for having us.
