    Great place to be located at. Right in the middle of town next to all the fun spots. Would stay again.

    Wonderful, unique property. The place was clean and comfortable. We loved putting together our puzzle and playing card games on the bar!

    Nice little place in small town Iowa, was a good place for a group of friends to meet in the middle of our locations. Thanks!

  • Terrific place.


    OK, initially staying in a converted old bar doesn't sound that appealling, but this place is totally refreshed and spotless. If you need a place to stay, as well as a place to entertain friends and family, this is it. It's got everything and the location is terrific.

  • Amazing Stay


    Fantastic location in downtown Lansing with a lot of room. There is a queen bedroom with private bath, 2 full beds in a loft area overlooking the kitchen/living (bar area) and an additional bedroom with 2 twin beds. Linens/bedding/pillows were exceptional and we felt right at home. Excellent stay, great decor and amenities. Highly recommend going to Coffee on the River! Love everything about this rental and will definitely rebook.
