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.

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!

A feel good B & B that was super comfortable. Lani made our stay feel like we were home. She was so helpful and an awesome cook! A beautiful place to stay. We loved it.

Innkeeper Response

A bite out of time

Our one night stay at the Inn at Locke House was such a nice addition to our week-lon trip through CA. The house is full of history and the hosts have given it much love and care. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

Innkeeper Response
This house is filled with history that we enjoy talking about whenever guests inquire. On your next stay we hope you'll take time to explore the historic cemetery (we have a guide book) and visit the schoolhouse museum.

A Great Value For Your Dollar

The inn at Locke House is a very traditional B&B and has a rich and intriguing history. The inn keepers / owners where kind and made you feel that you where at Grandmas house. Over all the stay was a great experience.

Wonderful weekend

I booked this as a surprise for our 29th anniversary. Just a relaxing weekend with my wife and nowhere to have to be. The Tower Suite was beautiful - and private. The bed very comfortable and the view from the tower was a nice bonus. We missed breakfast both days as we were being lazy and sleeping in. So, we couldn't rate the dining. (However, we did get to sample some of the baked goods - absolutely delicious! And, other than a quick meeting when we arrived and as we were leaving, we didn't really even see our hosts. Richard and Lani seemed very friendly and eager to please. Our thanks to them for making the weekend great for us!

Innkeeper Response
It sounds as if your stay was exactly what you wanted - lots of rest and relaxation. One does not live by cookies alone - although my husband believes that one can! - so next time you snuggle inn let us discuss a way for you to have morning nourishment!

Great Time

We loved the Locke House Bed and Breakfast. It is beautiful and the suite was great. We will be going back. The owners were wonderful. We tried both their breakfast in a box to go and one in the kitchen they were both excellent. Susan and David

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for choosing to stay with us. We think of our "Breakfast to Go" as an early morning picnic. Glad you enjoyed it!

An ideal stay

We spent 2 nights at the Inn. The building is a wonderful historic site, the room very comfortable, and the hosts delightful. The breakfasts were outstanding and we enjoyed wandering around the grounds and the town. We highly recommend the Inn and will be staying there again when the Sand Hill Cranes return. Lew Petrinovich & Jane Stecher

Innkeeper Response
Please do return for the Sandhill Cranes! If all goes as planned, the Lockeford Schoolhouse museum and park will be open for visitors then. From previews, they will be really worth exploring. Thanks for your review.

Charming historic house with delightful hosts who are very knowledgeable about local history and are marvelous chefs. Scrumptious food for breakfast that included fresh fruit from their own gardens. We stayed in the lovely Abington Room; bed was very comfortable. Our private bathroom down the hall was beautifully decorated and had a heated tile floor. The sense of an intimate and extended (2 nights) visit to a specific place & time of yesteryear was palpable.

Innkeeper Response
We're so glad you enjoyed the inn and its role in local and state history. The San Joaquin Historical Museum is reviving its Native American exhibits, so be sure to put that on your list of things to see next time you stay with us.

Lovely Inn

Reservations were easy to make and their website easy to use. The Inn at Locke House is conveniently located. The innkeepers are efficient and reliable warmly, personable making their guests feel more like friends than paying guests. The history of the house is interesting, the rooms are decorated nicely and very comfortable. There are lots of books and magazines, a tv in the common rooms. The whole house is clean and except for the innkeepers private rooms all accessible to the guests. Lani and Richard provide you with home baked treats at night and a scrumptious breakfast with as much coffee as you can drink in the morning! You can't go wrong staying here....really.

Innkeeper Response
We're so glad you felt comfortable and at home while you stayed. Thank you for taking time to write your extensive review. Hope you'll stay again when weather permits you to enjoy your coffee in the gardens.
