Washington Township Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

This private guest cottage is located in Indianapolis, in a very central location, minutes to Broad Ripple, 15 minutes to Downtown and 10 minutes to Carmel. Our property has been on the Indianapolis garden tour and is very lovely and peaceful.

The cottage is comprable to a 3-4 star hotel suite with similar amenities and ample living and sleeping spaces. This is not your grandma's musty cottage--this is a well cared for property with keen attention to detail and client experience. We excel at offering superb location, quality and affordability in a very special garden environment.

*PLEASE read our reviews which are all 5 stars*.

The master suite features a Queen bed with seasonal linens (cotton or fleece). If you require the pullout sofa, please note that it is a Queen-sized TempurPedic mattress (no crossbars) and it's a favorite of many clients.

The cottage has FREE WiFi, local-only TV, FREE Netflix and Amazon streaming, DVD player, stereo and a well appointed kitchenette. (Please see itemized inventory on our listing.)

The private rear patio is equipped with a propane gas BBQ and has a seating area for four.

Located 10 minutes to Broad Ripple, 20 minutes to Downtown or anywhere in Metro Indianapolis and surrounding suburbs.

What makes this cottage unique

Some of the comments we've received have been how tranquil and relaxing it is to unwind in our guest house. The gardens are in bloom year-round and depending on the season, the display of flowers varies. Whatever time of year, it is a special place to be. When you're ready to explore, there are many big city cultural attractions nearby.

Guestbook comments from the owner


Thanks again for everything--we really enjoyed our stay in Indy and loved

the cottage! I'm just sorry we did not have more time to visit and get to

know you and your family, it was a pretty intense basketball weekend---and

one that ended with a championship for the good guys in green and white!

What a wonderful way to cap off our first ever tournament experience, it

certainly made the weekend worthwhile. Everyone at the arena was so nice

and so helpful and we just really enjoyed ourselves.

You have a wonderful oasis and it was just perfect for us, you have

thought of everything to make your guests comfortable.

We will certainly recommend you to anyone we know that is headed to Indy

and we hope to see you again!

Thanks so much,

Eric & Sharai

Delightful Stay

  • 5 of 5

Both mother and daughter had a wonderful stay at this lovely cottage in a beautiful garden setting. In spite of the rainy weather we were tucked cozy inside, comfortable with thoughtful amenities. Claudia was a gracious host offering great suggestions for dining while in the area. Though not far from our own home we felt like we were miles away in this darling retreat. We'd love to return.

The Perfect Place To Stay In Indy

  • 5 of 5

I can't express how pleasant my stay has been. The owners are very accommodating and did everything possible to make me feel welcome. The cottage is very comfy and private, but close many excellent eateries and shopping. It is like having living in your own home while traveling. And when my plans changed requiring an extension on my original check out day, they did everything possible to make it happen. This will be the first place I try to book anytime my travel takes me to Indianapolis. My total experience couldn't have been better.

Excellent cottage for two!

  • 5 of 5

Indianapolis is an undiscovered short term vacation spot and you could not select a better place to stay than this private and peaceful cottage in the heart of everything! The Jazz Kitchen, ten minutes away, serves up excellent food and live high-caliber jazz, 7 nights a week! Two plazas of fine restaurants, shops and grocery providers are within a five minute ride, so you can easily stock the kitchen for a relaxing breakfast whenever you choose to rise. Downtown Indy is an easy ride for visits to the zoo, the minor league baseball stadium, and many museums. This cottage will always be my first choice as a place to stay in Indy. All the praise from the earlier reviewers is well deserved! Claudia is an excellent hostess and knows the area well.

Perfect Cottage

  • 5 of 5

This is so serene and cottagy!

All was most comfortable. We lacked for nothing and the surroundings were quiet and very lovely. This is the type of property making VRBO so popular.

Thanks for the stay, we would do it again. Next year the Drum Corp will return and so will we.

Wonderful place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

I recently stayed here for a conference held downtown and it was my first time to visit Indianapolis. This was the perfect home. It is close to many nearby eateries and grocery stores and convenient for getting downtown. There is a great welcome book with directions for getting around and suggested places. Claudia and Steve were fantastic and made sure that I had everything I needed. The cottage is beautiful, spacious, and the outdoor gardens were lovely. Traveling alone, I felt very safe staying here. This is a very comfortable, quiet, and amazing place to stay and I cannot say enough good things about the home and the homeowners. I would definitely recommend this cottage and I look forward to staying here again next time I visit IN.
