Add a Touch of Country to your Thanksgiving or Christmas Celebration

Where to stay

Lockewood Rancho | Spanish Revival-Style Ranch Living on the Eastside of Lodi Wine Country

Imagine the ranch-style holiday or long weekend surrounded by ancient oaks and horses on the outskirts of the old western town of Lockeford, just east of Lodi’s downtown.




That could be your experience for Thanksgiving. The long dining table sits up to 10.

The kitchen island is 14 feet long so there is plenty of room to help prepare a wonderful feast.



The single-level, newly redecorated house sleeps 8. There is plenty of room to relax, take a long walk or consider the fall activities in Lodi’s Wine Country
