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!
I am a retail manager and enjoy interacting with all the people I meet on a daily basis. I like to spend time outside gardening, taking walks and bike rides with my family. I enjoy doing projects, learning how to do something new and trying out new recipes. My favorite music is country and bluegrass, but enjoy all music.
Julie Townsend purchased this house in 2010
I fell in love with the property and the yard!
Relaxing 1700 square foot ranch home on an acre in the Center Grove area at the edge of Greenwood in Bargersville.
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.
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
Convenient location to Indy and outlets. Room for family with food provided. The kids really enjoyed the large backyard. Cottage is very clean with comfortable beds. We would stay here again.
I cannot say enough good things about this property and its owner, Julie.
Our son got married at a nearby winery and we needed a place closeby to stay. Julie was so accommodating with our needs. We were able to host the rehearsal lunch in the side yard and it was perfect. We lacked for nothing down to the last detail including a fully stocked frig and pantry.
Thank you, Julie for being so gracious and accommodating!
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.
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.
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.
