“Great hosts, enchanting building and gardens”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2012

Stayed there 1 night with my wife. Loni was a great host and just as good of a breakfast cook. The room was cozy, but quiet and cooled off nicely at night. There's a great garden and porch outside to read a book in. Loni was a great host, suggesting wineries and places to eat. I had no idea there was so much wine in and around Lodi. It's a beautiful area.
Breakfast impressed us two foodies, and tided us over until about 2 in the afternoon. We met some nice people at breakfast, and found out that the Calaveras County frog jumping competition was that day. Off we went.
What a great B&B!

We are so glad you enjoyed your visit! There are now over 70 wineries in the area - each so unique and serving such delicious wines that some of our guests spend a good part of their day at just one or two of them! Give yourself time to take in even more of this area on your next visit - the parks, museums and galleries are reflections of the bounty and beauty of the northern valley. Thank you for taking time to post a review.

I took a chance on purchasing a trip on Living Social. My husband and I took the trip. When we arrived, we were greeted by Lani, the owner. She had a warmth about her spirit that said, "Welcome home." Our room was clean and we had our own bathroom. My favorite breakfast was the first morning. She served a French toast orange souffle. To die for! We got our wine tasting voucher in nearby Lodi. I had no complaints about the Inn at Locke House. The only problem, per se, was that everything closes by nine in Lockeford and Lodi except for the fast food restaurants (by 10). It was a great stay!

We are so glad you enjoyed your stay and look forward to your return. Thank you for taking time to post a review. Closing early in small towns is part charm and part inconvenience during the week. Weekend hours are later.

We had a terrific one night stay in the Water Tower Suite. The room was spacious, private, and overlooked a lovely garden. The hosts pay a lot of attention to the details - both small (like the soaps) and big (like the renovation of the historic home); there is a lot to enjoy. We didn't take advantage of any local restaurants but really enjoyed the generous breakfast and coffee. We plan to repeat the visit.

We are so glad you enjoyed your stay. It is surprising, even to us, how much there is to see and do within a day! It is heartening to see the little towns in this area focus on revivial, especially saving historic sites and putting them to new use - including restaurants. You'll have to have a restaurant adventure on your next stay.

My husband and I were celebrating his birthday and decided to attend a concert at Garden Stone Winery (which was very close). We stayed at the Inn at Locke House so we wouldn't have to drive back even though we only live about 40 minutes away. The owners of the Inn could be any more nicer or accomodating! Breakfast was beyond anything we expected. Beautifully cooked, and presented, generous, and delicious. Our every need was easily and happily taken care of. The Inn is very clean, the local wineries are fun to visit as is downtown Lodi. We do not stay at Bed and Breakfast places very often, but highly recommend the Inn at Locke House for a get away, winery tour, take advantage of conerts offered in the area, or just retreat. Make sure you visit the sausage place on the main street and bring home some sausage (which are served at breakfast - a real treat!). We could be more happy with our stay!

We're so glad you enjoyed your stay....and thank you for the review. Isn't it amazing how much there is to do in this area? Next time, put the historic Old Schoolhouse Museum and Harmony Grove Church and Cemetery (we have a great guidebook) on your list ot things to do.

A wonderful historic bed and breakfast. We enjoyed reading the history of the house and seeing a display of items from the original owner Dr. Locke. Our room was very nice with a large bathroom. The room has a small gas stove for heat in winter and in summer a portable AC. The super quiet ceiling fan was all we needed to keep cool in June. The bathroom has a claw foot bathtub, but it was taking to long to fill with water so I ended up taking a shower. The rooms are on the second floor, so you must be able to climb stairs to your room. Downstairs the parlor is furnished with lovely victorian furniture and a TV. The hosts Lani and Richard are very nice and Lani even made our dinner reservation. The breakfast was outstanding. A pot of decaf coffee was made just for me. There is plenty of off street parking and outdoor seating areas in garden. I sat outside having coffee and reading Sunday paper. This is a great place to relax while visiting the many wineries nearby and in Lodi.

Thank you for posting a review. Wine tasting in Lodi is so diverse that one visit is just not enough. Hint, hint! We'll work on the water pressure for that clawfoot tub because we know how soothing and relaxing a tub soak (with bubbles) can be.

We stayed here last week and were delighted with the charm and comfort of this historic inn. The owners were friendly, the roooms comfy and extremely clean. The private bathroom actually had a heated floor! We loved the place. It is close to all the wineries in the Lodi area. I highly recommend a stay.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with an in-room bath, if available. Our bath was just ours but down the hall.

We purchased a deal for the Inn at Locke House through LivingSocial and were really excited beforehand. Upon making our reservation the inn owner told us we needed to pay an extra $180 to use the massage part of the deal...huh!? After explaining the situation to her she still insisted we needed to pay the $180, which is not how LivingSocial deals work. Stay away from any deals offered for this place.

We are sorry there was a misunderstanding. The offer stated "use your $100 certificate toward the healthful benefits of an indulgent wine scrub and couples massage". It does not specifically say it covers it in full anywhere in the deal description. This 90 minute wine and grape seed oil spa treatment was developed especially for the Wine Country Escape offer. Please check our website for our inn specials. We hope you find one that you like and that will afford us the pleasure of welcoming you.
