There is a room off the kitchen that is the second family room / third bedroom that has convertible couches into twin beds that has bedding available for use in the totes. The two couches can also be made into almost a King Size bed. The bedding is also available for that. Please let me know what bedding you prefer to have, and I will have it prepared.There is a 32" Vizio Smart TV in this room with an HDMI cable. This is where the main WIFI box is for the house.

We have updated a large percentage of the lighting to LED throughout the house for brighter lights along with the energy savings features that it offers. (October 2015). There is a GFI plug behind the washer, in the kitchen and the bathroom if for some reason it goes off, just push the reset.

Shopping and dining within one mile.

People ask me often, 'Where is Bargersville?' Bargersville has been around since 1850 and is 4.93 square miles. It has tripled in population since 2000 reaching 6,400 in 2013 and continues to grow. It is a quiet area and part of the Center Grove School district. This house is at the northern edge of Bargersville off of SR 135 about 14 miles directly south of Downtown Indianapolis which makes it convenient when coming to this area for events. From downtown you pass Greenwood which has major retailers and dining and shopping is less than a mile away.

Guestbook comments from the owner

My girlfriends and I had a great time staying at Julie's cozy cottage. Julie provided everything we needed for our girls getaway weekend. The location of the house was good too, it was very convenient to get to Greenwood and Downtown Indy. We hope to book with Julie again in the near future.

Fantastic Rental!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in the Cozy Cottage with my husband, brother-in-law, sister-in-law, niece (5), and nephew (3). There was PLENTY of room for everyone. Julie was very thoughtful and provided a lot of amenities that so many other rental houses do not. The house was close to everything we needed, but the big backyard makes it feel very secluded. I especially like the ease of the front door locking system, with no house key needed! We stayed here because it is close to my sister-in-law's house, and I told her that if she ever has too many guests that she doesn't have room for, they absolutely need to book this property!

Owner's Response: Natasha, We so enjoyed hosting for your family during your travels to the Greenwood area. I am so glad the house was spacious for your stay and that you enjoyed the amenities. Center Grove has certainly grown over the last few years and offers plenty of dining and shopping opportunities. I have to agree with you on the backyard, it is so relaxing for me when I spend time over there gardening. Thank you again for staying at the cozy cottage and we look forward to hosting for you in the future. The house looked wonderful upon your departure! Sincerely, Julie

Awesome experience!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Julie's house while visiting family nearby. Julie's house was even better than described-it was so much like home! It had everything that anyone could need! The beds were comfortable, the house was decorated nicely, and the kitchen was stocked with snacks and spices. She even had food and drink for us in the fridge!

We will definitely stay here again when we visit!

Comfortable cozy cottage perfect for the entire family!

  • 5 of 5

We were very pleased with our stay at this property. The owner was in constant contact with me throughout the entire process. She provided me with a wealth of information on the house and it felt just like home. All four of our daughters were able to completely relax in the quiet neighborhood which meant great sleep for Mommy and Daddy. This is a very kid friendly home fully stocked with everything a Mom would think of! It it conveniently located near a grocery store and close to the highway. We loved the breakfast items and how organized the home was. We would love to come back again!

Thank you!

Owner's Response: Teresa, We are so glad to hear that your family felt like home and had a relaxing time at the cozy cottage! It is great to hear that the girls also had a great time enjoying the house. The weather was unseasonably warm, so I hope you were able to enjoy the yard. The cozy cottage has been in the Center Grove area since 1935, and am glad you were able to enjoy the location and neighborhood. It was truly wonderful to host for your family and we hope to see you for future visits! Sincerely, Julie

Christmas at Cozy Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for the great family get together. We slept 10 comfortably and the one bathroom was not a problem. The kitchen was fully stocked, even with spices, for our new grandson-in-law to make his famous chili. The house is much bigger than it looks. The toys for our "drop in" great-grandchild were fun for all of us. Very comfortable beds with plenty of bedding. Think the thermostat must have been remote controlled as every once in awhile the heat would go lower than we wanted. No problem, just bumped it up to what we wanted. Mary

Owner's Response: Mary, We were so glad to have hosted for your second visit to the cozy cottage for your Holiday family visit. I am so glad that the house accommodated your family of 10 and everyone had a great time! It is always wonderful to host for your family and the house always looks perfect when you leave. We have the house listed for 8 guests, though with the bedding available we have, can accommodate families like yours :). With the new Vivint Sky Control System, that was added since your last visit, the thermostat can be controlled from the thermostat, the panel above the fireplace, or remotely. The temperature is at a set point, though I do not change it when a guest is staying, a guest can set it at the panel or thermostat. This feature helps me make sure the guest has the mechanicals working properly before their arrival! The house alarm can also be turned on at the panel, if the guest desires that aspect. along with other features, that are available upon your arrival in a brochure. It is always a pleasure to have your family stay at the cozy cottage and we hope to host for your future visits! Congratulations on your new great grandchild! So Sincerely, Julie
