About Marne Simpson

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

Why Marne Simpson chose Central Valley California

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.

What makes this house unique

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.

Spacious, charming and convenient

  • 5 of 5

Tons of indoor and outdoor space, all comfortably appointed. We loved our stay in this house! The architecture and furnishings are beautiful and feel very Nor Cal, so this really does feel like a true getaway. Walking distance to the shops and tasting rooms of downtown Lodi. Communicative and easy to work with homeowners. Only advice - make sure you read the instructions on working the locks! We struggled until we noticed the instructions, but then it was easy. Great place, I would stay here again!

We enjoyed staying in this beautiful quaint home in a lovely neighborhood. The home was very clean, comfortable, beautifully decorated & had great outdoor patios to enjoy. It is within walking distance of the fun downtown area of Lodi & right across the street from a nice park. The owners were very helpful & gave great customer service in planning activities for our trip. Would definitely stay there again & recommend it!!

We'll be back

  • 5 of 5

Hutchins House is a wonderful location in a very nice neighborhood, and walkable to downtown Lodi, restaurants, galleries, groceries, Lodi Lake. Very nicely decorated and definitely the best equipped VRBO we've seen. Truly everything we needed: kitchen equipment, stapler, laundry soap, extra bulbs for the night light, & plenty of corkscrews! Lots of closet space with real hangars. Marne & Steve made it feel like we were staying at a family member's home. Hope to be back next year.

Beautiful historic home in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We had 6 people at the house. The house is spacious, nicely decorated and comfortable. There is a nice patio off the kitchen to bbq, a nice shaded yard and a cozy deck off the living room. The neighborhood is full of similarly beautiful old homes and it's a great place to walk. The house is across the street from a park and Hutchins Square, and only a few blocks from downtown. It was a great base for us when we were in town to visit family who lives in the same neighborhood. The only potential downside was the single bathroom, but we did not have a problem with it. We talked to a couple of neighbors, both very friendly and welcoming. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and look forward to our return stay. We recommend this property.

We felt the advertising was accurate, the property was clean and well maintained, the owner provided great customer service. Lodi is a great base for day trips to San Francisco, the Mother Lode country and the Sierra Nevada mountains. The wine tasting in Lodi is great. We also recommend seeing the sandhill cranes in the Delta, only minutes from the house.
