About The Owner

My husband Bill and I raised our family of four children in Wheaton. It is an excellent community to live and raise a family. We hope you will enjoy your visit very much.

The Owner purchased this studio in 1990

Why The Owner chose Wheaton

Our coach house predates our home and was built by the Guglers in the early part of the 20th century. Mr Gugler was a lithographer and the coach house was his studio. Horses were kept below, and Pershing street to the south was a dirt cow path named after farmer Pershing, not the general. The fireplace is built from his old lithography stones , which was an early printing method for the 1800's. From 1995 until 2010 the coach house served as my art studio where I created custom floor cloths.

Our coach house is situated on an acre of land in the center of Wheaton Illinois which is the county seat of Dupage county. Downtown Wheaton is a quaint and charming city with an abundance of dining options and boutique shopping

What makes this studio unique

Our central location and walking distance to the train makes our property unique. We think you'll love the privacy and charm of this space

Charming, comfortable & fully appointed

  • 5 of 5

Thank you, Liz! You really made my stay wonderful. Your attention to detail was just perfect. You really made me feel welcome.

I stayed in the apartment by myself but I think it would have been fine for my family as well.

The whole place is really cozy and every single thing you could possibly think of is included. The linens were great. The kitchen was well-stocked. I can’t say enough about how cozy and comfortable the home is. And Liz is just so nice and sweet and helpful.

Thanks again. If I come back out again, I definitely hope this apartment is available again.

Located in a lovely garden setting, private cozy second story apartment

  • 5 of 5

The coach house is red barn adorable! Totally separate building with over garage apartment that faces out on a beautiful garden. Taking our son to college this was an incredibly convenient location to the college. Liz greeted us, introduced herself and explained a few details. Liz graciously made sure the kitchen was well appointed and the fridge had everything needed for breakfast...eggs, English muffins, orange juice, milk, cereals, amazing muffins and snacks! Liz provided access to herself through email, text and phone. It was a great experience, right up my alley...cute and quaint, a fun alternative to a hotel. Hope to be back again!

Great accommodations with lots of charm

  • 5 of 5

We had everything we needed.. and more. We came to visit family nearby during the 4th of July. We stayed for 2 nights. Liz was a great host and even filled up some water balloons for my 7 year old son. It was exactly what we wanted. I highly recommend staying at the cozy coach house!

A Hidden Gem!

  • 5 of 5

I am from Wheaton and have not been to the area for a few years. I needed a place to stay for a quick weekend trip and wanted to feel like I was at home. The Cozy Coachouse was a Godsend! I was able to feel like I was home while visiting and everything about the stay here was excellent. The coachouse is tucked away in its own oasis. The yard is lovely and creatively designed. The coachouse was artistic, cozy, and had everything you would need. Liz was wonderful and accommodating- and I’m so grateful that she offers this opportunity for folks coming into town. What a gift! Thank you for a wonderful stay!

A truly wonderful place to stay when in Wheaton

  • 5 of 5

I was very impressed by the charm of the Cozy Coach House. I couldn't believe all the snacks, food and bottled water that Liz had stocked in the unit. I have stayed at multiple VRBO properties and have never had owners provide the type of amenities that Liz provided. A wonderful experience. When the need arises, I will definitely stay at this property in the future. Easy walking distance to downtown and the train station. The location allowed me to forego a rental car. Who ever heard of such a thing in the suburbs?!? Thanks Liz!

Wheaton coach house

  • 4 of 5

We very much enjoyed staying in this property and meeting the owner. We knew she would be available for any issues. It was clean and the environment was quiet. The kitchen was well stocked with appliances and cook and serve ware. The living room was spacious. The heating system worked well.

Would have liked an end table with a reading light in the living room.

Would have preferred a queen-sized bed.
