I was treated to a stay-cation (stay in town vacation) at the Shellcrest, and what a treat it was! At the time I was in-between apartments and needed a place for about a week. Staying at a hotel didn't appeal to me and I had already done the rounds on friends' couches. I was looking for some much needed privacy,... More

The Shellcrest was more that I expected. I loved the Victorian architecture of this 1860s townhouse with it's wonderful views of downtown Memphis. It has great amenities like its up to date kitchen, washer/dryer, sunroom, balcony, gated parking and walking distance to a trolley stop to head downtown. The host, who was very helpful, told of us a very unique... More

I would definately recommend Shellcrest for anyone that is looking for accommodation in Memphis. I found any queries I had via email were answered promptly and every effort was made to accommodate my needs, definately one of the best customer service experiences I have ever had while booking accommodation for a hotel

We stayed 3 nights and loved the place. Perfect for a couple, and a reasonable price. The house itself is really comfortable, and well laid out. The position is as good as you need it - easy 10 minute walk downtown. Great hosts, with helfpul tips on where to eat and drink. For the price why would you bother with... More

We recently spent 3 nights at the Shellcrest and it was a wonderful experience. The Shellcrest is a two bedroom apartment with unique charm and character. It's centrally located downtown by great restaurants, the FedEx Forum, Civil Rights Museum, RedBirds Stadium, Sun Studio, Beale St., and the Mississippi River. There is secure gated parking. It's a great place to stay... More

For $175, you get an entire floor in a 2 family colonial. It offers a fully furnished apt, complete w a kitchen, washer, dryer and most of all privacy. Scott, the proprietor is extremely welcoming and helpful. He is very knowledgeable and is happy to help w recommendations for restaurants, sites, etc. I'd recommend having a car if you do... More

We recently had a 4 night/day stay at the Shellcrest and it was terrific. The owner/innkeeper, Scott Blake, lives next door and greeted us with enthusiasm and lots of excellent information. The B & B was one of the most unique places we've ever stayed. The house was built in the 1800's and is filled with high ceilings, large windows,... More

Shellcrest is a hidden gem in Memphis. It is such a unique and inspiring place to experience the city. I love having the opportunity to feel like a local instead of a tourist in Memphis, and there is really no where you can have this experience except Shellcrest. The value is exceptional. Instead of a small hotel room you get... More

We didn't have to go far to realize we'd made the right choice with Shellcrest. The best BBQ we had during our stay in Memphis--Neely's BBQ, now featured on the Food Network--is quite literally right outside the front door. We stayed in the second story unit. The layout is fun and distinct, and the apartment was very comfortable, with a... More

We celebrated the Christmas at Shellcrest and in all matters it was a nice experience. First of all the apartment and the furniture was amazing - way more interesting than a hotelroom. In our nice and full equiped kitchen we could prepare a perfect christmas dinner and afterwards enjoy it in the beautiful dining room. The host Scott was also... More
