There is a trick you can try for this.

Make a table with 2 cells. If you double-click to highlight one of the 
cells, you should see a list appear in Properties > Line, where you can 
choose which sides of the cell frame to show as a border. You have to 
assign the border a color in Color tab, of course. You should also be 
able to independently resize this cell, minimizing the other cell, which 
you won't be using. It's a little glitchy, so you may have to play 
around with it a bit to get it to work as I describe here. The important 
thing is double-clicking on the cell you want to have this feature, and 
the sign you are in the right mode is that this list appears in the Line 

You would think that you might be able to create a one-celled table to 
do this, but at least in my hands I can't get it to work to show the 
list in the Line tab.

Also note that the default cell is a text frame, but you can convert to 
an image frame. I note that in this case, while you can adjust image to 
frame, the Context menu shows no Adjust frame to image option.
