My love, took me as a surprise to the Locke House! Regretfully it was only one night! The Locke House has such charm, dated eloquence and rich history. You will love your stay as well as the charming and delightful owners Lani and Richard, who put so much love and care into Locke House enhancing it's character. We plan on returning in the spring for a couple of days to enjoy the Locke House when in full bloom.

Thanks for taking time to review your stay. We look forward to your return, especially during spring and summer when the garden "canvas" changes so dramatically.

Inn at Locke House is a delightful bed and breakfast in a very small town outside of Lodi, an area bursting with wineries and tasting rooms. The inn keepers, Lonnie and Richard, are just so accommodating - gorgeous breakfasts served in this charming 1800's home of a physician with 13 children, Dr. Locke. There were fresh sugar cookies wafting through the house when we arrived Friday night. With the house full of antiques, the rooms are small but adequate with its own bathroom with heated floors. Lonnie was a source of information about local wineries and events, the Sandhill Crane Festival in Lodi in our case. The town of Lockford itself is tiny with a couple of antique shops and a sausage store. We enjoyed our stay here and will return.

It was our pleasure to have you stay, and it will be our pleasure to welcome you again! There are so many sites to explore in this region that we "play" tourists ourselves to discover more of the area.

If you're in the area for wine tasting or just relaxing, this in a wonderful place to stay the night. Lana and Richard are wonderful hosts, and they have worked very hard to create a unique country, but yet still edge of the city, experience. It's obvious Lani has a passion for this sort of thing, and it shows in the atmosphere of the place, and the food she prepares.

1st time guests at this very nice B&B near Lodi, CA for my husband and I and another couple. Not knowing what to expect from our choice of accommodations this weekend, we were pleasantly surprised at this quaint, comfortable and cozy inn. We have not been fans of B&B's in the past, but this Inn has changed our minds! Lani and Richard were very gracious hosts and ready to please us at every turn. They shared the Inn's history in a creative story telling way, but were not overbearing (as we have experienced at other B&B's). Our room was quiet, nicely decorated and quiet. The sitting rooms and living parlor was darling. We brought our own picnic dinner from home and enjoyed it on their outdoor patio by the lovely gardens. Breakfasts were delicious, as were the treats in the afternoon. We all even enjoyed a board game one afternoon. There are many wineries in this region and the wine tasting is amazing. Why not finish those great days with a quiet, comfortable evening at the Inn. We will definitely be back again to stay with the Eklunds!

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the opposite side of the building from the road. It may be just a bit more quiet t...

You'll need to stay a little longer next time and tour a bit of the town, including the soon-to-open Old School House museum. And there's always a new Lodi wine to taste! Thanks for the review.

Loved, loved, loved this place!!!!!!! My entire family(10 of us) stayed at the Inn
for several days while attending a family wedding. Lani and Richard Eklund(owners)
were so incredibly warm and accommodating----helping with places to eat, local
wineries, directions, stores......
Being at the Inn was like being at home! The breakfasts were AMAZING----so delicious---
we never had to eat again until dinnertime!!!! I can't emphasize enough just how
hospitable the Eklund's were!!!!
And the Inn itself has such interesting history. It has been updated to a very clean,
very comfortable inn.
We couldn't have asked for a more welcoming, comfortable, hospitable place to stay!!!
THANK YOU Lani and Richard!!!!!! We all hope to visit the Inn again someday!!

We very much enjoyed our stay at The Inn at Locke House. Lani, Richard, and Kerri were all so friendly and welcoming, the food was delicious, and the accommodations were clear and comfortable. The room and public spaces were updated in such a way that is different from many of our stays in older inns. The floors were not creaky, the rooms were not musty, the lighting was not poor. It was historic, but it was completely comfortable at the same time.

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.
