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.

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.

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.

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!

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.
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!

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.
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.

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.

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.
