Located in the heart of Memphis is a one-of-a-kind rustic retreat inspired by the great outdoors known as Big Cypress Lodge. It all traces back to a bold wager made during a fishing trip in 2005 when Johnny Morris caught a massive 30-pound catfish near the Memphis Pyramid. He promised to transform this iconic space, and he delivered. With 103 luxuriously comfortable guest rooms, towering 100-foot tall trees, and a captivating swamp inhabited by live alligators, they are undoubtedly a haven like no other. Whether it’s a family getaway, an adventure with friends, or a romantic escape, the Big Cypress Lodge is the perfect destination to create memories that will last a lifetime.
