Both Steve and I (Marne) grew up in Lodi. Our families and many childhood friends still live nearby. We actually met in our college years in southern California and couldn't wait to move back to our hometown once we were married. Our two daughters were born while living in this house and although we love it dearly, our growing family needs a little more space as they enter high school. So, we moved across town but want to share our home with others visiting this little town that means so much to us. In all of our travels we have learned what makes us most comfortable while staying in a home away from home and have tried to include all of those special details to make you feel like this is your home too. I helped found the Lodi Conference and Visitors Bureau as Lodi began developing it's tourist sites and know almost all there is to know about Lodi, the events, the businesses and the wineries. Lodi is a small town that has many 'secret' gems. I would love to help you plan your visit here and to make the trip even better than you had hoped it could be.
Marne Simpson purchased this house in 1996
We are only the fourth owner of this almost century old home. It is beautifully built with fine craftsmanship and the perfect floor plan and has been lovingly cared for. The minute we first walked in the door we knew it was the house meant for us. It is set in the perfect location to enjoy the surrounding neighborhood and downtown area. The neighbors are friendly and the three outside patios give you lots of options for dining and relaxing all year round.
This older neighborhood is known for it's tree lined streets and families out walking the dog or playing in the park across the street. It is truly small town America with all the benefits of big cities. Celebrations are common, festivals are busy and the art scene is strong here. And all of it is happening within walking distance of our front porch.
We stayed at Hutchins House in December of 2013. The house had been on the Christmas Tour of Homes in Lodi. It was like temporarily living in a Norman Rockwell Cover of a December Saturday Evening Post.
Every room was beautifully decorated. The house is well maintained, charming, but with
all the conveniences of home. We wish we had that kitchen at our house.
I especially liked the sounds of footsteps on wooden floors and the distant train whistles as it brought back memories of my childhood.
There are some wonderful restaurants in Lodi, not to mention all the lovely vineyards.
We would give Hutchins House six stars if we could.
Every aspect of this property was what we had hoped for when we made our reservation. The owner was extremely helpful in addressing all inquiries. The property was very clean and beautifully presented. The location was ideal, within walking distance to downtown Lodi and the many tasting rooms and restaurants. While the listing photos were great, Hutchins House on arrival was splendid. Relaxing and comfortable. As stated, a beautiful home away from home.
What a wonderful home to stay in. The owners provided every possible thing that a family would need to enjoy the home and spend some time in the area. The kitchen was fully equipped for some serious cooking and baking. The home was in a pleasant quite neighborhood only a few blocks away for the local stores. Excellent place, we will be back.
We rented this very cute, comfortable and clean VRBO in downtown Lodi for our extended family to stay in while they came from out if state for our sons high school graduation. It could nit have been more perfect. Everything about it was great. They were able to enjoy walks in the neighborhood and downtown for breakfast, we took a class at the cheese shop downtown, golfed, and walked downtown and enjoyed dessert and live music one evening.
Beautifully kept house with lots of attention to detail. Made us feel right at home and so glad that we rented this house! Perfect place for relaxing and very child friendly!
Our stay at Hutchins House was great! The wisteria was in bloom over the pergola and smelled and looked beautiful. The house was immaculate. They provided a high chair, pack and play and toys for our little one which made our stay very comfortable. Beds were comfortable, and kitchen well stocked. Beautiful quiet neighborhood. We enjoyed the parks nearby. Downtown Lodi is very close and we walked there several times.
