This is the second time I've stayed at the Cozy Koi. Both times the hostess was friendly and welcoming. The inn was restful, a good place to relax. The breakfast was fabulous. A great place for a quiet get-a-way.
Challenged to review. The host was very nice, breakfast was great and dog was fun to play with. The challenge is to note the clutter, her collections, that makes one uncomfortable setting anything down as you may not see it. We put our stuff back on our suitcases to make sure nothing was left. There were 15 pillows in just our bedroom. Neighborhood was quiet.
I loved our stay at this Kitch lovers dream. Mid-century antiques and personal charm. Diane is just lovely - she truly makes you feel like a guest in her home. Breakfast was absolutely delicious and you're a 10 minute walk from the Capitol area (REO town?) and Old Town, both of which have fun things to do. You're also 3 blocks from the River Trail, which spans from downtown Lansing to the MSU campus. It's beautiful and would be a great place to bike ride or canoe. There are 2 houses; we stayed in the yellow one. You park in her grass lot in back, but since we were the first guests to arrive that day, we got the carport. You have access to the whole house, basically. Kitchen, living room, and a 2-person balcony, along with your individual room that has a bathroom and kitchenette, but no TV. I don't care about that at all, but I can see how others would. There is a TV available in the communal living room. We stayed in the Garden Room, which is very economical, but has a rather old school bathroom and vibe. We were perfectly happy as it was clean and welcoming with windows that open to allow great ventilation. Next time, I think we'd stay in the room with the balcony and updated bathroom, it was very nice looking. You'd have to share the balcony if someone was staying in the room next door, but it's perfect for friends or family staying together. I think it would be really fun to rent out the whole house. The best feature of our room was the kitchenette which is fully stocked with pots, pans, plates, cups, a kettle, etc. If I had to stay in Lansing for work for a few days, I'd definitely grocery shop and cook. There is a lovely separate dining area with a big window. Since you have access to the living room, you could conceivably have people over, even. Breakfast was at 8:30 with a slightly flexible time depending on what time you request the day before. Diane made this delicious baked egg dish with cheese and hash browns that was fluffy and savory and perfect. She served it with fresh fruit, homemade warm chocolate banana bread, ham and turkey bacon since we asked for it. So considerate. Great coffee, juice, and conversation around a family style table with your housemates. Different. Cool. Diane is great at facilitating conversation. I highly recommend staying here and will definitely be back soon!…
stayed here April 18-20th. Very nice older house with all kinds of antiques. Quiet, great breakfast,will make what you want,10 blocks from Capital. Take a look down the street at night and see the capital all lite up. Host was very friendly and nice. Will stay again. Picture of room shown in advertisement was the one we stayed in
We’d hoped this would be as great an experience as all of our other delightful B&B stays. The host is a very nice person. Since she runs so many businesses, it’s no wonder she doesn’t have time to dust the many, many trinkets that absolutely cover each surface. She kindly asked our breakfast preference when we made our reservations. Unfortunately, she didn’t make note and served the exact opposite of what she’d promised, high carb, high sugar. We stayed in the main ‘historical’ house. We won’t be returning.
