House rental here is competitive, but you can't blame people for wanting to settle down. A small town feel, in close proximity to the cosmopolitan center of Indianapolis, means that you'll want to start hunting for homes or apartments early on. However, development is rapidly expanding. In fact, it's the fastest growing community in all of Monroe County; new opportunities are popping up all the time.

Neighborhoods in Ellettsville

Because this is a small town, Ellettsville is primarily divided into downtown and residential areas. This is not to say you can't live downtown, but they are primarily apartments and small homes. There are three main residential neighborhoods in Ellettsville that range in price. Yet, while the large Victorian mansions are located in higher cost neighborhoods, that doesn't mean you can't find a gorgeous cabin for a decent price wherever you choose to live.

Forrest Park Heights/West Brook Downs: Forrest Park Heights is a pleasant neighborhood which makes up the southern tip of the city. Most of the homes here are 3-5 bedrooms, with some larger real estate peppered in for flavor. Many of the houses here are older, and while new developments have been making their way into the neighborhood, most residences have been here since the 1970s. Fast Max Convenience Store is also here.

Town Center: The central area of Ellettsville is made up primarily of single family homes and multi-story apartment buildings. Many of the establishments in this area are newly built, giving the town center a far more modern feel. Living here will situate you next to restaurants and taverns. And while residents can fully enjoy walking around their neighborhoods, it is likely you will still need a car when heading to work. If you want to live in the town center, it's important to start your search early, as demand here is particularly high and only a small fraction of homes are vacant at any given time.

Route 46/ West Maple Grove Rd: The Route 46 area of Ellettsville is another pleasant, stable neighborhood. Unlike other areas, it contains far more townhouses for rent. It's not the most ideal locations for those looking for rental homes. Most of the residents here own their homes, and the vacancy rate for the few rentals is super low, even lower than Town Center. Many of the buildings here are newer, and despite a few old grand mansions, most residences have been around for only about a decade.

Living in Ellettsville

The Practical

It should be noted that there is no public transportation currently available in Ellettsville, so having your own means of getting around is a must. Many who work and live downtown will be perfectly fine walking to their jobs; however, with a number of new industries investing in the area, many workers find themselves driving an average of 20 miles to get to work.

The Fun

Life in this small, leafy town will no doubt take on a leisurely and relaxed pace. However, that hardly means you'll be bored. An eclectic assortment of restaurants marks the downtown area. From dueling pizzerias to Chinese, Mexican, Italian and Middle Eastern restaurants, there's a good chance residents will find something to suit their fancy. And for those who enjoy nightlife, a few good taverns round out the experience.

For nature lovers, the nearby Middle Fork and North Fork Wildlife Reserves means that hikers will never be too far from a trail. And only a few miles from the town center, the Monroe Reservoir is the largest lake in Indiana. Camping, boating and swimming are all popular activities here.

Those in search of a great glass of wine need go no further than Creekbed Vineyard and Oliver Winery. Just a short ride away, these friendly establishments benefit from sweeping views of the countryside. Signing up for a tour means you'll spend the day sampling their various wines and getting a first class education on the winemaking process.

For golf junkies, Cascades Golf Course, Salt Creek Golf Retreat or the Martinsville Golf Club provide excellent landscapes and respite from the rest of the world. And for those who enjoy the game, but prefer to take it slightly less seriously, there is also putt-putt golf available just a few minutes away from Ellettsville's town center.

Two annual events are eagerly anticipated by Ellettsville's residents -- the start of the two-day Hilly Hundred Bicycle Tour, which commences right in the center of town, and the Monroe County Fall Festival. Held just outside of town, it is marked with parades, talent shows, games, live entertainment and plenty of delicious festival food. All this and more ensures Ellettsville lives up to its reputation as the "friendly little town next door."

There are three main residential neighborhoods in Ellettsville that range in price. Yet, while the large Victorian mansions are located in higher cost neighborhoods, that doesn't mean you can't find a gorgeous cabin for a decent price wherever you choose to live.

Forrest Park Heights/West Brook Downs: Forrest Park Heights is a pleasant neighborhood which makes up the southern tip of the city. Most of the homes here are 3-5 bedrooms, with some larger real estate peppered in for flavor. Many of the houses here are older, and while new developments have been making their way into the neighborhood, most residences have been here since the 1970s. Fast Max Convenience Store is also here.

Town Center: The central area of Ellettsville is made up primarily of single family homes and multi-story apartment buildings. Many of the establishments in this area are newly built, giving the town center a far more modern feel. Living here will situate you next to restaurants and taverns. And while residents can fully enjoy walking around their neighborhoods, it is likely you will still need a car when heading to work. If you want to live in the town center, it's important to start your search early, as demand here is particularly high and only a small fraction of homes are vacant at any given time.

Route 46/ West Maple Grove Rd: The Route 46 area of Ellettsville is another pleasant, stable neighborhood. Unlike other areas, it contains far more townhouses for rent. It's not the most ideal locations for those looking for rental homes. Most of the residents here own their homes, and the vacancy rate for the few rentals is super low, even lower than Town Center. Many of the buildings here are newer, and despite a few old grand mansions, most residences have been around for only about a decade.

Living in Ellettsville

The Practical

It should be noted that there is no public transportation currently available in Ellettsville, so having your own means of getting around is a must. Many who work and live downtown will be perfectly fine walking to their jobs; however, with a number of new industries investing in the area, many workers find themselves driving an average of 20 miles to get to work.

The Fun

Life in this small, leafy town will no doubt take on a leisurely and relaxed pace. However, that hardly means you'll be bored. An eclectic assortment of restaurants marks the downtown area. From dueling pizzerias to Chinese, Mexican, Italian and Middle Eastern restaurants, there's a good chance residents will find something to suit their fancy. And for those who enjoy nightlife, a few good taverns round out the experience.

For nature lovers, the nearby Middle Fork and North Fork Wildlife Reserves means that hikers will never be too far from a trail. And only a few miles from the town center, the Monroe Reservoir is the largest lake in Indiana. Camping, boating and swimming are all popular activities here.

Those in search of a great glass of wine need go no further than Creekbed Vineyard and Oliver Winery. Just a short ride away, these friendly establishments benefit from sweeping views of the countryside. Signing up for a tour means you'll spend the day sampling their various wines and getting a first class education on the winemaking process.

For golf junkies, Cascades Golf Course, Salt Creek Golf Retreat or the Martinsville Golf Club provide excellent landscapes and respite from the rest of the world. And for those who enjoy the game, but prefer to take it slightly less seriously, there is also putt-putt golf available just a few minutes away from Ellettsville's town center.

Two annual events are eagerly anticipated by Ellettsville's residents -- the start of the two-day Hilly Hundred Bicycle Tour, which commences right in the center of town, and the Monroe County Fall Festival. Held just outside of town, it is marked with parades, talent shows, games, live entertainment and plenty of delicious festival food. All this and more ensures Ellettsville lives up to its reputation as the "friendly little town next door."
