We really enjoyed our stay here. The owners were so helpful when we had questions and the rooms were clean and well kept. The grounds were peaceful and very inviting. The only drawback was that there could have been more towel racks in our room. Three of us stayed in one room and there were not enough towel racks for... More

My husbsnd and I can't say enough about the Coach Light Inn! Richard and the staff were wonderful hosts! Not only providing a clean comfortable room on beautiful well kept grounds at a reasonable price, but they were very helpful in answering our questions and leading us to the best places in Door County to visit which made our trip...

This place just screamed, "Door County". The owners were incredibly sweet, helpful, and knowledgeable. The rooms were plush with giant quilts, pillows, and pastoral paintings. The property is set back in the woods, so you are outside of the hustle and bustle of a city. Incredibly clean and well-maintained. They have 24/7 coffee and tea, and a nice selection of... More

We have stayed at the Coachlite Inn for many years and our past vacation in June was one of our best yet. As avid birdwatchers at home in Illinois, we were delighted with the variety of birds we were able to photograph and enjoy on the Coachlite property. Rich and Jeannie are wonderful hosts who care about every detail of... More

Rooms were clean, but a bit dated. They were also very quite. Beds were comfortable, but the linens were well worn. Easy to find and ample parking. They are one of the few places we could find that took a single weekend night booking. They do have a hot tub, but it was not working when we were there. It... More

Thank you for staying with us and taking the time to write a review. We appreciate your highest mark for service. We do enjoy our guests and try our best to accommodate a pleasant stay. Being 1/4 mile from downtown, the quiet of our property is something that many comment on during their stay. The paved path across the street... More

Normally we stay at a condo w/ a fireplace, in room hot tub, etc but we decided to try the Coachlite Innn and we're glad we did! Very clean, the beds were super comfortable and we were able to stay two nights for the same amount we'd pay for one night at our usual spot, we'll definitely be back!

My wife and I stayed at the Coachlite for six nights during Christmas week, Dec. 23-28, 2014, and it was absolutely terrific. We have been going to Sister Bay for 25+ years for Christmas, but this is our first time at the Coachlite because it was not open during the off season. Well, Rich and Jennie are the relatively new... More

The stay was enjoyable and memorable due to the friendliness of the hosts. The outdoor hot tub was clean and the rooms and grounds very pleasant. Would definitely stay there again and recommend it to friends.

We traveled in the off season, and with Door County such a tourist's destination, we were happy to find that this establishment was open. (Many were not) The room was spacious and cozy. We were supplied with the usual amenities, coffee pot, fridge, etc. Breakfast was served in a cozy room off the main entrance. Even though we were the... More

My friend and I planned a quick weekend in Door Co. Without advance planning our options were slim. We prefer the northern end of the peninsula so we took a chance on the Coachlite with one of the few remaining vacancies. What Luck!! This is a lovely, family operated inn. On the main highway, it is tucked far enough back... More
