About this listing

The space

Location, Location, Location
Although The Urban Cottage is packed full of charm, its main attraction for Indianapolis visitors is its LOCATION. Located in the Historic Fletcher Place Neighborhood, it is less than a mile away from Lucas Oil Stadium (Colts Football!), Bankers Life Field house (Pacers Basketball), and the Convention Center (GenCon, FFA, and other conferences) and the City Center. Perfect location for Mini Marathon and Monumental Marathon participants. The Urban Cottage is also conveniently located to the airport, Indianapolis Motor Speedway (Indy 500, Brickyard 400, and Moto GP). There are many interesting LOCAL restaurants and breweries also within walking distance. Iaria's famous Italian restaurant is one block away and Sun King Brewery is one half mile away. A few local favorites!

Host Details
I worked at a Bed and Breakfast throughout high school. It was a gorgeous 1885 Victorian Mansion with a breathtaking view. I ABSOLUTELY loved every minute of working there! Now-quite a few years later- I purchased a second house in Indianapolis as a creative space for writing and painting. My favorite feature of the house is the master bedroom floor. It is a lovely floral painted carpet (see attached photo) that was created as a collaborative effort between two of my friends. The house is truly charming! I found out about Air bnb a few months after I purchased the house and thought it would be fun to try it out. I would LOVE to share the space with others!

So much better than a hotel. It's clean with comfy beds and everything you need for a peaceful stay.

great two bedroom place that is clean and heather is an easygoing and accommodating host. the real plus is that it is smack in the middle of fletcher place where you can walk to anywhere. Also, my office is downtown and i walked every day - 15 minutes it was very convenient.

The Urban Cottage is exactly as described and shown in the photos. I was doing some consulting work in downtown Indy for a few days, and the cottage was so much better than being confined to a single (hotel) room. Heather is as gracious as the Cottage is welcoming and easy to reach.

Nice place. Much preferred over a hotel room. It is close to the high way which is great for getting to but is a bit loud with the traffic noise. Overall I would stay again for sure. Host communicated well and keeps the place nice and clean. Felt kind of like home and that's a tough thing to get when traveling.

I LOVE experiencing life and living each day to the fullest. Traveling is important to me. Fortunately, I have been able to travel to many places across the United States and around the World. My favorite travel destination is South Africa. It is simply breathtaking and has opened up my senses to new heights. I could not live without live music, good books and microbrews.
