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.

All I can say is fantastic. Leslie is the perfect host and does everything to make sure your stay is perfect. She is very knowledgeable about the area which was greatly appreciated. Location is in a beautiful, quiet neighbourhood just a couple of blocks from Memorial Stadium so great for anyone visiting IU. The studio itself is amazing. It is located in a tranquil setting with a huge deck overlooking a waterfall and koi pond. And if that isn't enough, Leslie has thought of everything from an extra toothbrush to orange juice. I could go on about how great it is but really you should just check it out for yourself. You won't be disappointed.

Lovely setting! Plants and fish pond are very relaxing. It was an easy walk to an IU football game. A little longer trek to campus and downtown, but we could have done it had there been more daylight hours. Leslie's place had everything we needed and more - very well stocked kitchen and bathroom!

This was the perfect place to stay while visiting the IU campus for a football game and parent's weekend. It is very convenient to campus yet offers a cozy retreat situated in a quiet neighborhood. Leslie was a very pleasant and thoughtful host.

We had a very nice stay at Leslie’s Airbnb. It was fun hanging out at the cottage in Leslie’s beautiful back yard, which offered both privacy and lovely surroundings. The cottage was spacious and comfortable. Leslie seems to have a passion for being an Airbnb host. She enthusiastically offered us great suggestions for exploring Bloomington and the surrounding areas. We took her up on her recommendations, and had a fun time. We definitely recommend staying at Leslie’s Airbnb!

Gorgeous, quiet, and serene place to say. This spot far exceeded our expectations. Having lived in Bloomington before, this place created an experience unlike any we've ever had here. This will be our preferred location whenever we return to Bloomington. Leslie was such an amazing host, we loved getting to meet her!
