Our First Two Nights Married

5 on November 17, 2014

My wife and I loved our stay at the Locke House. Lani and Richard were very accommodating with our late arrival time. The water tower suite is amazing, as is the rest of the house and property. The breakfast was outstanding, conversations during breakfast were great, everything was wonderful. I would recommend a stay here to anyone looking for a restful or romantic getaway.

Innkeeper Response
All our guests are special, but honeymoon couples hold a special place in the inn's heart! The Water Tower suite was designed with love in mind. We look forward to your return.

Just what we were looking for!!!

My wife and I wanted a convenient, charming, unique, one of a kind home-base for our trip to the Lodi/Amador County wine country and we found it in the Inn at Locke House. Lani and Richard were just as gracious, hospitable and pleasant as could be. We loved our cozy room and the wonderful coffee and warm breakfast to start each morning. We would definitely stay here again!!! Brian and Perry, Charlotte, NC

Innkeeper Response
It was our pleasure to have you make the inn your "home away from home" as you explored the Lodi and Amador wine regions. Hope you enjoy your wonderful wine selections!

Birthday weekend get-away

4.4 on October 28, 2014

The Abington Room is very spacious. I like the history of the Bureau/Closet dating from the Civil War. Having a bathroom down the hall is a little inconvenient, but the original home used chamber pots and an outhouse, so we made the accomodation. Lani's meals were delicious and we enjoyed our breakfasts.

Innkeeper Response
You enjoyed the historical treasures of the Locke House and that makes us happy. Of all the inn's guest rooms, I love looking out of the Abington's windows the most.

Reunited with old friends at the Inn at Locke House

5 on October 16, 2014

My wife and I and several other couples chose the Inn for a reunion weekend. We were taken care of by the owners as though we were long lost old friends. The hospitality and setting were superb and the time spent on the back porch sipping local wines as we gazed at the English-style garden was most relaxing.

Innkeeper Response
Having a family or a group of friends gather at the inn is very special. Thank you for choosing this experience for your friends. We'd love to have you back again!

Great B&B in my hometown

5 on October 14, 2014

We had a wonderful wedding night there and breakfast in the morning. Lani is a fantastic cook! Bacon Quiche. "Nuff said. As far as value, I may not ever wrap my head around places around Lodi being more than $100 a night. It was a stretch for us to afford this place, but I'm glad we did. Considering the Hampton Inn in Lodi was charging $160/night that weekend, this was definitely a more unique and fun experience at the same price point.

Innkeeper Response
To have a Lockefordian spend her honeymoon night at the inn is an honor. We hope to welcome you again on an anniversary.

Great room and excellent service and breakfast.

Friendly, romantic inn - loved it!

We spent the weekend at the Inn at Locke House and were very impressed with the special touches the owners put into restoring this beautiful home. Everything was spic and span, all amenities were provided, and the breakfasts were delicious and beautifully presented. The owner even took the time to give us a tour of the house and gardens, explaining the history of the original owners/builders, and the process of restoring this estate. We loved our stay here and will definitely come back!

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for letting us know how much you enjoyed your stay at the inn. It is an interesting house and we're honored to have restored it. Do come again because the "restoring" never ends.

Perfect Weekend Getaway

5 on August 05, 2014

We had an incredibly relaxing weekend at the Inn at Locke House. We were greeted with chilled champagne in our room when we arrived, the bed was huge and luxurious, and even though it was a sweltering hot weekend (100+ degrees), the room stayed comfortable and cool thanks to a portable AC and ceiling fan. Lani had great suggestions for wineries to visit and her breakfasts were amazing. 10/10, we'd love to visit and stay there again.

Innkeeper Response
And we'd love to have you stay again. Come this winter when you can snuggle before your fireplace and enjoy some of our winter recipes for breakfast.

We went for a quick anniversary get away, and the weekend couldn't have been anymore perfect if I had written the script myself. I had chosen to have the romance package with wine and rose petals on the night we arrived and that really set the tone. We walked into our room and were greated by a blast of cool air, and our beautiful tray. Even having arrived very late in the evening everything was perfect. Our breakfast and picnic lunch the next day were delicious and generous helpings. They very easily accommodated my vegatarian diet. The gardens were so beautiful and the stars so prominent that we decided to share a bottle of local wine their instead of going out to downtown Lodi. My only complaint was that we had to leave so quickly. I can't wait to go back.

Innkeeper Response
We are delighted that you chose to celebrate this important event at our inn. And it was a pleasure to have you as guests. Like you we take every opportunity to enjoy the gardens, especially in the cool evenings. We look forward to your return!

Innkeeper Response
