This home is one of the original homesteads in the area. This home can be rented for same day reservations, if available and accommodates business travelers. We live about 1/4 of a mile away if you need assistance or have questions during your stay.

There is a key less entry, and will give you your own unique code. If you would like us to meet we can coordinate that. The house is easy to use and either me or my husband will be there if you need anything. There is a manual on the entry table with information about the house.

The home has a circular driveway that will hold 4-5 cars if you have someone visiting while you are staying here. The circular driveway gives you easy access on to Smokey Row Road. There is a newly constructed intersection at State Road 135 and Smokey Row Road with turning lanes and stoplights. There is no public bus transportation. Indianapolis airport is 22 miles from the home.

There are two bedrooms with queen beds that have cozy, warm bedding for the winter season and summer bedding for the warmer months. There is a luggage rack in each of these closets.

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. There is a 28" Vizio Smart TV in this room with an HDMI cable. This is where the main WIFI box is for the house. This room also has access to the backyard.

I have bedding for the crib in a tote and set up before arrival. There is also a high chair available for use. There are toddler toys that are available for guests or visitors.

Heat is turned off in mild weather or set low, house warms quickly within a few minutes when turned on or up. I will turn on/up if I know when you will arrive.

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.

There are 2 carbon monoxide /smoke/fire detectors, one by the kitchen door by the furnace and one by the storage room off the bonus room. There are 2 additional smoke/fire detectors in the house.

If you choose to have a small fire in our fire pit please be responsible and attend it until it is burned out.

Please enjoy the time your stay at this house, treat it as you would your own house. Please ask questions if you aren't sure how to use something.

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.

Minimum Rental Age Requirement is 21.

Thank you for taking the time to view our Charming Cozy Ranch Home and hope you are able to stay with us during your travels!

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.

Perfect home away from home

  • 5 of 5

Two of my friends and I rented the home for a girls weekend getaway to do some shopping. This home was very warm and comfy, we all had our own space and the home was equipped with everything we needed. Julie was even kind enough to stock us up with snacks and food, I have rented other homes before and this was a first for me. The home is located in a nice area and has a big yard with lots of outdoor seating and a grill. Our main goal was to hit Nashville which we did, but we were also close to outlet shopping and big city shopping as well. Thank you Julie for letting us rent the place and we will definitely be back again soon.

Convenient location and well-equipped

  • 5 of 5

I return to my hometown, Indianapolis, frequently and usually stay at a relative's home. This time we needed to visit my 87-year old uncle who is recovering from extensive surgery, and I also wanted to visit other relatives. I have always wanted to try out Julie's Cozy Cottage and decided this was the time. The house was very comfortable and the location was just perfect for us. I was surprised at how much the Bargersville area has grown; a lot more traffic than I remember.

Julie has everything you need and even more at the house. I've never stayed at a place so well equipped. It was nice to not have to intrude on relatives this time. Thank you, Julie, for being such a great hostess.

Home away from Home

Had another great stay at the Cozy Cottage. I always stay here when I have business near Indy. The owners go way above and beyond to accommodate their clients. Love sitting in the backyard and relaxing. Can't imagine staying anywhere else.

A Pure Winner!

  • 5 of 5

Our family needed housing as we monitored a family member in an Indy hospital in ICU. This Cozy Cottage was perfect. It provided a refuge for companionship, sleep, meals and laundry. The home was very clean, comfy and exceptionally well provisioned. The owners are nearby and easily accessible. The beds were extremely comfortable. We took advantage of free passes to LA Fitness; grocery stores and lots of restaurants are nearby on St. Rd. 135. The country setting is so peaceful, yet so near lots of interesting activities. This VRBO is a pure "winner."

If you are looking for a place to stay in the Indianapolis area stop looking and book this beautiful cozy cottage! Everything about this place was absolutely perfect! While it is a cozy cottage it is actually quite spacious. More than enough room for our party of 5. Two beautiful bedrooms and a wonderful bonus room. We arrived after driving 15 hours, we were tired and hungry. We walked into a welcoming cool home, met with a wonderful scent from candle warmers. In the fully stocked kitchen we were surprised with wonderful snacks, bottled water, juice milk and items for a complete breakfast! The house is decorated with a charming country theme. It has a huge backyard with a garden. We had fun picking fresh vegetables and adding them to our breakfast. The owner Julie went out of her way to make sure we were comfortable even asking what kind of milk we liked. We were in town to watch my son compete in the Drum Corps International World Championships at Lucas Oil Stadium, the commute to downtown Indy was really easy and only took about 20 minutes. Don't know if I will ever visit Indiana again but if I do I will stay be staying here. My only regret is that we didn't get to spend more time in the house. You can't say that about a crowded hotel room. Thank you Julie for a wonderful experience!
