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!

Very nice home with all the amenities you’ll need

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at this home. It was quiet and so nice to sit outside with a cup of coffee. The beds were comfortable, the kitchen had everything we needed and the house was very comfortable overall. It does accommodate a good sized group, but you need to make sure you have people who shower quickly (we did) with the one bathroom. It’s a large bathroom though, with a nice shower. We had a wonderful experience here. Thank you!

Julie goes beyond in helping you feel welcome!

  • 5 of 5

Never have I had food ready for breakfast and so many other amenities in a VRBO rental. It was really clean and the yard for our post wedding picnic was fantastic.

It isn’t new so if you are looking for new this is not your rental, but not worn just an older home and decor, however the bed was very comfortable. There were so many sleeping options as well. I can’t say enough about how great it was to work with Julie and we had a great experience!!!

Only thing we wished was that there were two baths but it was very functional.

Thanks Julie

Owner's Response: Babs, I was so glad that you were able to experience the amenities that the cozy cottage offers. Before you arrival, I was working in the yard and thinking how wonderful it would be if my guests would be able to enjoy the backyard. It certainly made my day, when I read your family had a picnic and had a great time during your stay. I am glad you found the decor comfortable for your stay. We look forward to hosting for any future stays you may have to Bargersville, Indiana. Thank you for taking wonderful care of the cozy cottage, the house looked great upon your departure!

The name says it all!

  • 5 of 5

Well kept home with nice amenities. Beds are comfortable, and the sheets felt like they had a decent thread count. All appliances were clean and in good shape. We took advantage of the grill and fire pit in the spacious back yard. Enough food was provided to get us started, and Kroger is less than a mile away. If you’re going to be there for a while, Costco is 9 miles away. I made a comment to my wife that I felt very safe with the doors wide open. Julie and Todd are great hosts.

Owner's Response: David, Thank you again for staying at the cozy cottage. I am so glad that you enjoyed the amenities that the house offers. It is wonderful that you were able to cook out and enjoy the backyard. It is certainly one of my favorite places to relax when I have the opportunity. We hope that we are able to host for you next year, so that you can enjoy more of what the Center Grove area has to offer. It is wonderful to hear that you found the area safe and secure.Though we offer a Vivint Security system for our guests to access, monitor and alarm the house, we are very grateful that Johnson County Sherriffs and the City of Bargersville police departments are always working, to do their best, to keep residents, safe and secure. We appreciate you choosing the cozy cottage, for your stay in the Indianapolis area. Sincerely, Julie and Todd
