Cozy & private, but still close to the action! You’re a short walk to Memorial Stadium & Assembly Hall, and a quick drive to IU Campus, Downtown & all Bloomington has to offer. Located in a secluded backyard surrounded by gardens, pond and waterfall.

The space

The Garden Studio is perfect for sports fans, parents of IU students, visiting professors, families (with one or two children), music buffs, and outdoor lovers. Read, relax, or get set to go! The kitchen is equipped with a stove, microwave, toaster oven, mini refrigerator, coffee maker, and all the amenities for cooking. If you don't find what you are looking for, just ask! It is clean and comfortable with a couch for lounging and a queen-sized memory-foam mattress for a restful night's sleep. The space easily accommodates two people, but the pullout sofa bed can accommodate two more. The bathroom is complete with natural toiletries, 100% cotton towels, and a Waterpik Elite shower head. In the warmer seasons, the large outside deck provides another private space for watching the stars and enjoying the aquatic life in the surrounding fish pond.

Guest access

Brick pathways and stone-walled gardens amid stately trees and perennial flowers will guide you to the privacy of the Garden Studio, tucked into the half-acre backyard.

As we stayed there a week previously, we were clearly happy with the studio or we wouldn't have gone back! Lovely quiet place and this week we were able to use the decking to enjoy the sunshine. And as before Leslie was a great hostess.

We stayed in the studio while visiting our daughter who is studying at IU. It is exactly as described with a beautiful decking overlooking a huge fish pond, so if the weather is good, you can sit out and dream about retiring! It is a peaceful home from home. Leslie is a perfect host who provides fresh coffee, fresh fruit and great granola! She also has 2 friendly dogs who she is happy to share with you if you want! All in all a great place to stay and we would definitely recommend it

What a sweet Airbnb!! My big question is: Can I just hide away here?!! It is so peaceful with the goldfish/koi pond and waterfall just below the deck! Leslie's special touches of providing coffee, granola, creamer and fruit along with a variety of bathroom essentials "just in case you forget" all added up to a terrific and restful evening! I will definitely return for the next yoga training I do in Bloomington!
