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.

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.

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.

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.

Wonderful Cozy Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Whether you are in the Indianapolis area for an event or just a trip back home ... stay here! This home has it all and is truly a home away from home. You will want for nothing. We typically travel with items so we don't have to rush out to grocery immediately. Well, you don't need to do that here. The owners of this property have this home stocked with everything you need and more, making it so comfortable you don't even want to go out. The interior is country comfy and cozy, the exterior is lush and scenic and green. Julie is on the spot if you have questions or need information about anything and is a very outgoing person, I feel I have made a new friend. This home is perfectly located for any event in the area, convenient to everything! I truly did not want to leave when our week came to a close, and hope there will be another opportunity to return ... soon! Can't say enough good about this home! Thank you for everything!

The Best Host Ever!

  • 5 of 5

Our experience staying in Cozy Cottage was truly unforgettable!

Julie is the best host we have ever met! She was responding within a few minutes, asked me some questions to learn more about our family in order to provide an excellent experience that would suite our specific needs. I don't want to go into too much details since I wouldn't like to ruin it for you.

Cozy Cottage is a very specious, elegant, cozy, and very, very clean place. It has everything you need, just name it. It smell very well and you can spend some time just looking at rugs, beautiful paintings, books, games, and much more. Kitchen is fully equipped. It has a full size fridge, a dishwasher, and even a washer and a dryer. Back yard is very big, it has lots of sitting place and a new gas grill (there is a charcoal grill as well)!

Just book this place and get ready to enjoy your stay before it even started!

Thank you, Julie, so much for everything you've done for us! You are the best!

Owner's Response: Samir, I am so glad your family enjoyed staying at the cozy cottage. I truly appreciate your comments on the decor of the house. The original house was built in 1935 and is a part of the history of Bargersville and Johnson County, Indiana. Todd and I remodeled the home, but tried to keep what was dear to the previous owners. Many of the items that I have decorated the house have a special meaning for people who have lived in this area. I treasure their stories that they told me that go along with the items that I have in the house, for my guests to enjoy. Thank you for your nice comments and taking wonderful care of the cozy cottage. We hope to host for your family's future visits. Sincerely, Julie

Great location for south side of Indy

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at the house for a long weekend associated with a wedding. The house is rural, but easy to get from the south side of Indy. Plenty of parking, plenty of room in the house, and the third bedroom can be set up as either two twins or a king (a real benefit depending on who is travelling with you). It was nice to find the kitchen set up with basic seasoning so we didn't have to bring or buy. The only downside (and it didn't bother us) is only one bathroom. We will likely stay here again for an upcoming weekend.

Quiet, well kept and pleasant. Yet right next to anything you will need.

  • 5 of 5

For our yearly trip to Indianapolis, my friends and I rented this little Cozy Cottage for a week. On the south side of Indianapolis, this place is in a very nice community, with a little of everything just down the street.

The property is very well kept and, as it's name states, very cozy. Julie did a great job prepping for our stay, including changing out a couple of beds to make the sleeping arrangements fit for our group.

If we have the opportunity, we will be staying here again.

Thanks Julie for a great place and incredible hospitality.
