Guestbook comments from the owner

"We rented this loft to share with a group of friends over Labor Day weekend, and we had a great experience!! The loft has kind of a funky, artsy vibe. It is spacious and full of things to keep everyone occupied, including a pool table, ping pong table, and several televisions. The kitchen had everything we needed, and everything seemed nice and clean and well maintained. We were pleased to find that we didn't need to travel very far from the property to get things like groceries - for a small town, Lansing has a surprising number of amenities including several bars, a general store and a bakery. Lansing is scenic and makes a nice jumping-off point to explore the sights in the neighboring towns. A great place to make some fun memories!!"

Better Than A Small Hotel Room

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 7 stayed here for the weekend while attending a wedding. It had everything we needed. Minus a few cobwebs, it was clean, including the furniture. Enough towels and hot water for showering and the beds were comfortable and clean. Very roomy and great decor.

Our second stay. Everything was great. Love the location and comfy accommodations. My son loves the original PlayStation and original Xbox along with retro games to play. Nice to have washer and dryer. Three good places for breakfast within two blocks. Great view from deck.

Great location and fun, roomy space.

  • 5 of 5

Nicely remodeled huge loft with full kitchen, pool table, ping pong table, TV, video games, modern washer/dryer, deck and tons of beds. Responsive owner. Walk to everything. No WiFi and limited cell data speeds but our cell phones worked for voice/texting and the library down the street had wifi inside, in the lobby (open 24x7) and even on the bench outside. Walk up to Hosmer Park (entrance just several blocks) for a good workout and great view of river valley from top of bluff. Great massage place (Lansing Soap Co) just one block away.

Great adult weekend get away.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the loft for an adult couples get away. It was perfect. Loved every minute. The space is beautiful and large enough for our group of 7 that stayed there and a total of 15 of us total when our other friends came over to visit. The loft is very clean and spacious with great views from the deck of the river. It was within walking distance of bars, places to eat, shops and the river. Even with the lack of bedrooms this was a great place to stay and before we even left, were planning a time for a return trip! Would recommend this loft to anyone looking for a place to stay in Lansing!

We saw people on horseback stop at the Kwik Star

  • 4 of 5

A good space for 9 guys to spend the weekend. Having a full kitchen, deck and ping pong table was benefical. Owner was very accommodating and quick to repsond when inquiring about property and finalizing all details. Renters need to bring very limited supplies as almost everything is provided.
