The Inn was great!!!! The room was awesome and our private bathroom was amazing. Lani and Richard were gracious host. The food and snacks are second to none. We had a great time at the Inn and look forward to our next visit.

After being on the road for a while, we wanted to experience a local lodging and are happy we chose this inn. Luckily the Water Tower Suite was available. Taking the innkeeper's advice, we took our evening wine to the room at the top of spiral staircase to view the sunset, and our early morning coffee up to see the... More

Thank you for taking time to review. We’ve changed our system for cleaning the bathrooms by turning on the exhaust fans, opening the windows, and leaving the shower curtains spread out after cleaning so that no moisture collects there. The drought has changed our view. Bloom times and length of bloom on plants has changed also. Please note that leaves... More

We stayed at the Inn a few years ago and called to see if we could stay one night mid week. The extra cost for one night was worth it as the price was still below other places and you get so much more! Our queen bed was so comfortable and the in room a/c and ceiling fan kept the... More

We were fortunate to be able to stay in the Water Tower Suite. The building was started in 1862 by Dr Locke to house his growing family. The property stayed in the Locke family until the current owners Richard and Lani acquired it and began to lovingly restore and decorate this beautiful building. Our suite was spacious and comfortable just... More

It is always wonderful to have a group of friends meet here!

This is a very relaxing place to stay in the Lodi area. We enjoyed a complimentary glass of local wine sitting in the garden. Cookies in the cookie jar for the taking. Breakfast was exceptional. Bed comfortable and the bathroom large.
