We spent a peaceful, relaxing weekend in this beautifully renovated Victorian farmhouse. The gardens are lovely. We went wine tasting and bird watching at the lake. A weekend to remember.
We are happy that your weekend provided you time to relax as well as explore. The recent rains have expanded the bloom in the garden. Hope you'll bring a good book and give yourself time to read under the trees next time.

Elegant, beautifully restored Victorian farmhouse set in lush, lovely gardens. Heritage trees and old-fashioned roses. Breakfasts were delicious, even though I was a challenge because I'm allergic to eggs. The most serene, relaxing weekend my husband and I have had in a very long time. We intend to go back.

Very friendly reception by owners. Historically interesting building. Fantastic breakfasts.
We're very happy you chose to stay with us. It's fun to tour the inn with our guests and be reminded of its historical significance (and quirks!). Autumn breakfast and refreshment menu now - come sample!

We chose the Inn because we found the chain hotel Stockton offerings boring. The Inn is definitely not boring. The original woodwork, the lush gardens and the extraordinary breakfasts are all special. The Inn is listed on the national historic register and comes with a fascinating family story
Thank you for finding us and enjoying your stay. Love your review! Come again as there is more California history to discover around here.

Our stay was met with pleasantries in several ways: a warm and friendly reception, a room that was inviting, beautiful decorated, and comfortable, a relaxing garden to stroll through, and breakfasts that were wonderfully prepared and graciously presented! We look forward to another stay with the hosts and at the Inn at the Locke.
Thank you for letting others know how much you enjoyed the many aspects of the inn and its surroundings. At this time of year, we find many little treasures growing in the gardens and such interesting birds migrating through.

We had a wonderful stay in the Inn at Locke House. The house itself is beautiful, and the hosts were friendly, warm and made us feel completely at home. And the sheets are the softest we've ever felt. Seriously. Go just for the sheets. The Lodi area was a revelation to us - we've lived in Northern California our whole lives but have never spent any time in this region. The wineries were excellent, the town charming - good shops, good restaurants - just very fun. And the Inn was the perfect base for exploring. Close to town, but far enough away to feel like you are in the country. We whole heartedly recommend the Inn for a great get-away.
We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay. We think this area is also an undiscovered gem. Did you know that Stage 2 of the AMGEN Tour de California will end in Lodi May 11? We've got a great Amgen weekend special on our website! Look forward to seeing you again.

Orange French Toast
Rich in flavor, not in calories, this mellow yet crunchy breakfast entree is a favorite. It is served with toasted walnuts, freshly made orange syrup and graced with seasonal berries. Although Lani rarely repeats recipes for returning guests, guests specifically request that she prepare this at least one morning of their stay.
