Within walking distance of Downtown, Bryan Park, and The B-Line Trail, this luxury apartment is one of the nicest places to stay in town. It has undergone a complete renovation that rivals a premium suite at a boutique hotel with the added privacy, charm, and amenities of a private home for a very reasonable price.

The space
*A note to all prospective guests regarding COVID-19: Our cleaning crew has been taking serious measures and extra care in disinfecting and sanitizing all surfaces in our properties, including all doorknobs, handles, faucets, and flat surfaces. They are wearing gloves and ensuring that the space is clean and safe for you and your family.

It's sounds too good to be true, but it is... you would be hard-pressed to find a nicer spot to stay in for twice the cost, anywhere - just read our reviews.

Located within walking distance of Downtown, Bryan Park, and The B-Line Trail this luxury apartment is one of the nicest places to stay in town. It has undergone a complete renovation that rivals a premium suite at a boutique hotel with the added privacy, charm, and amenities of a private home for a very reasonable price.

Brand new premium appliances, white oak floors, quartz countertops, high-end finishes throughout, complimentary tea, extremely comfortable mattresses, wifi, Netflix, HBO, Hulu, Hulu Live TV, $30 in free drinks to Hopscotch Coffee and Cardinal Spirits (walking distance), and even a free 6 ounce bag of Lil BUB's Lil Beans - a proprietary whole-bean coffee blend made just for us. Not only that, but 10% of your booking benefits homeless special needs pets.

It is a family owned apartment, specifically built and designed to provide folks visiting our beautiful town with a perfect place to stay. We set out to create a clean, stylish, modern, and comfortable space with exceptionally fine attention to details including white oak hardwood floors, quartz countertops, brand new premium appliances throughout, light dimmers throughout, outlets and charging stations next to each bedside, a custom built Murphy Bed that converts to a mid-century modern couch, a private bedroom with a king-sized bed, a flatscreen TV with Netflix, Hulu, and other streaming services, and local art hanging on the walls. We also provide our guests with a complimentary selection of teas, plus coffee beans and two free coffee drinks from Hopscotch Coffee, a local roastery that's located within walking distance only a half mile from the apartment, as well as two free craft cocktails from Cardinal Spirits, a local distillery just down the road from Hopscotch. The kitchen is ready to be used as well, with everything you need to cook your own meals, including dishes, cutlery, pots and pans, and even cooking oil. We also provide fresh towels and washcloths, shampoo, conditioner, and body soap.

We have two side-by-side apartments available for rent. This listing is for the West Apartment, which is almost identical to the East Apartment, except that in addition to the living space with the Murphy Bed and kitchen, there is also a Master Bedroom with a king size bed that can be closed off from the rest of the apartment. If this apartment is booked, please check our least for Lil BUB's Really Nice Apartment - EAST for availability.

If you're looking for something a little cheaper, our East Apartment has a very unique "Relaxation Loft" in place of the master bedroom. It is a 4' tall room (that's right, it's only 4' tall!) lined with plush carpeting and throw pillows. It has a queen sized platform bed, mood lighting, and a wide screen TV. The room is easily accessed with a step ladder and can be closed off with a custom accordion door. It is perfect for watching movies with the family, or as a cool room for kids to hang out and stay in.

The apartment is located above Russian Recording, a full-service analog and digital recording studio that has produced over 1000 albums since 2003. The apartments were engineered to be sound isolated from the studio to prevent sound from bleeding into the rooms. If you're interested in taking a tour of the studio, please let us know and we'd be happy to show you around if there isn't a session booked during your stay.

You may notice that some of the art on the walls features an exceptionally magical cat. That's our cat, her name is Lil BUB (hence the name of the apartment), and she happens to be one of the most famous (and most loved) cats in the world. In addition to being a published author, talk show host, TV and movie star, and a Billboard chart-topping artist, BUB has raised over half a million dollars for homeless pets worldwide. 10% of the booked rate will benefit Lil BUB's Big FUND for the ASPCA, the first national fund for special needs pets. If you'd like to learn more about BUB, you can read about her amazing and inspiring story by googling Lil BUB and visiting the About Page on our website ( I can't post external links in the description!).

Where you’ll be

Bloomington, Indiana, United States

The apartment is located on the very southern end of Downtown Bloomington. The Square in the center of downtown is less than a mile away, a straight shot down Walnut St, the road we're located on, and only a 10 minute walk.

Bryan Park is only a five minute walk east, and has multiple playgrounds for kids, tennis courts, a running trail, and an amazing swimming pool with water slides.

We're also located only one block from the B-Line trail, a beautiful walking/biking trail that was formerly a railroad which extends 3.1 miles from the south side of Bloomington, through downtown and beyond. Cardinal Spirits and Hopscotch Coffee are located along the trail on the way to downtown, and are only a 5 minute walk from the apartment!
