For the most authentic stay in Indianapolis, you can’t beat a vacation rental. You’ll get more space and more privacy, but even better, you’ll feel like you’re part of the neighborhood. Whether you stay in Fountain Square or Downtown, Indy’s neighborhoods are full of historic buildings, craft breweries, interesting restaurants and tons of Midwestern charm, so you’ll want to make the most of it! Check out our curated list of stylish vacation rentals in Indianapolis that have everything you need for an incredible trip — all bookable on Culture Trip.
If you want to take advantage of the energy and nightlife of Fountain Square, this is the Indianapolis vacation rental for you. This cute house has five bedrooms, two full bathrooms, a fully equipped kitchen, and room for up to 12 people, making it the perfect setup for hosting large groups. The modern decor features fun pops of color and pattern, and cute design touches, like an antique tub, that make your stay extra special. In good weather, you can also take advantage of the private backyard and outdoor patio. There’s free parking available, but its central location means neighborhood favorites like the Red Lion Grog House are an easy 15-minute walk from this Indianapolis home-away-from-home.
Also close to trendy Fountain Square, you’ll find this three-bedroom and two-bathroom painted in oh-so-modern blues and greys, along with fun details like funky art prints and mid-century modern furnishings. With four beds (three queen-size beds and one sleeper sofa) and a fully equipped kitchen, this home has plenty of space for a family or friends traveling together. There’s a full laundry room, complete with iron and ironing board so you can look your best if you’re in town for a special occasion. Take advantage of the easy and free street parking. The house is walking distance from the Cultural Trail, and numerous restaurants and breweries, such as local fave, Chilly Water Brewing Company – the tap list changes regularly, but the all-beef hotdogs are always there to be savored.
Headed to Indy with the entire crew? Book into this spacious six-bedroom house that sleeps an amazing 20 guests! There’s tons of indoor seating for movie night, outdoor seating for cooking out, and a fully equipped kitchen with center island for creating some legendary meals. Kids are going to love staying upstairs in the finished loft, complete with two double beds. But you’re going to want to score the master bedroom, with a cozy private seating area, in-room fireplace and direct access to the upstairs deck for private lounging. The Northside location is super convenient, with a number of great attractions like the Children’s Museum of Indianapolis only a few minutes’ drive.
This Indy vacation rental is located steps from the Convention Center, but try not to be distracted by the dozens of interesting restaurants on the way to your conference — locals love The Block for their crispy-yet-fluffy french fries. Each of the two bedrooms in the condo features a king bed, and there’s also a queen-size futon for extra space. Modern interiors complement the historic 1911 building, originally a department store, that retains many of its original features such as marble accents and chrome escalators. Free laundry in the unit, a fitness center in the building, coffee supplied in the kitchen, and great views of Downtown mean you’ll have everything you’ll need for an unforgettable weekend in Indianapolis.
This dreamy penthouse apartment is the luxury rental that’s going to make your Indy vacation pics extra swoon-worthy. Just outside the dreamy mezzanine living space, there’s a balcony for relaxing and taking in the Downtown skyline views. The two-story windows flood the entire apartment – even its foosball table – with gorgeous natural light. The apartment also features a fully equipped kitchen with high-end appliances, high-speed internet, two covered parking spots and 24/7 self-check-in. But the best part is that this luxury pad is within walking distance of the Bottleworks District (and the Garage Food Hall) where your Indy foodie adventures can continue!
For an Indianapolis vacation rental so central that you can walk everywhere, try this gem. This luxury three-bedroom condo is only a three-minute taxi ride from Indianapolis Amtrak Station. Once you are unpacked, you can stroll over to the Lockerbie Square Historic District, several museums, and dozens of Indy’s best restaurants. In good weather, pop by The Rathskeller for a pint and a wurst in the biergarten of Indy’s favorite Bavarian restaurant. Back at the crib, you can lounge in the outdoor pool or burn off those sausages in the fitness center, before washing off the city in your jetted tub.
This architect-designed home is perfect for up to 9 travelers seeking something a little special with their Indianapolis vacation rental. Those special details include a beautiful sun deck and foosball table, plus exposed brick accents to add a high-end feel. The elegant bathrooms feature brass fixtures, and the entire space is decorated in a soothing modern palette of blues and greys. You’re also within easy walking distance of all the trendy bars, restaurants and shops of the Fountain Square neighborhood. After exploring, there are three comfy bedrooms, plus the sofa bed, which provides plenty of space to rest up for the next day of Indy sightseeing.
