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!

Heather's home is a cute, eclectic house in the historic Fletcher Place neighborhood. It is super walkable to great places to eat- a coffee shop, a bakery, bars, and restaurants. It is 1.2 miles to the Conference Center. There's a share-a-bike station close as well as a BlueIndy …

Great place to spend the weekend. SUPER close to downtown without the feel of it. Trap house next door that might be active so just kind of watch that. Fit and finish of the place (at the time I stayed) could use some work aside from just the aethetic (which itself is super great…

Heather's place is adorable! The cottage is so homey and comfortable. The decor is fun and artsy, and everything we needed was there. It felt more like borrowing a friend's cottage than renting a place to stay. The location was absolutely perfect, and we were able to bike or walk…
