When first reserving the house I was so impressed how outgoing and friendly Lisa was. Asking if we need anything and leaving the lights on when she knew we were arriving late. After getting over how beautiful the house is with its modern amenities but never losing its classic charm we found fresh pastries and fruit. The spa next door was great and many in our group used it. The back yard with bocce and the pond was a great place to hang out after long day. Highly recommend this wonderful home and will definitely return. Thank you Lisa.
All I can say is WOW! This home is the perfect getaway to enjoy some valuable time with loved ones. It is very inviting and has all the necessities to make your life easy going while on vacation! Rooms are big, there are plenty of windows for fresh air and the decor is stunning! It is a peaceful place for a couples weekend or just to relax. The owner, Lisa, is one of the best people you will communicate with on local recommendations and how to make your stay over the top! I will be back for more relaxation and to visit the spa next door!
A fantastic place to stay
My family and I all had a fabulous stay at Sideways House for my cousins wedding. The house was spacious, clean and in a great location.
My husband, mother, daughter and I all used the services of the spa next door - and thoroughly enjoyed it.
The only very minor negative is that people who are using the spa for a massage do walk through the garden of the house to access it. It was a bit odd having people walk through the garden but certainly not enough to put me off staying at Sideways House if I was ever in Lodi again.
Thank you for a great vacation house.
The pictures are beautiful, but to see this home in person and to enjoy all of its amenities
Awesome and awesome beautiful home. This home is so comfortable and we loved that we could walk to all the great places downtown 😊❤️
This house is absolutely stunning! It is immaculate, cozy, and beautifully decorated. Our family had the most relaxing stay here and we are already looking for an excuse to return to Lodi to stay here again. Lisa is helpful and responsive and made the whole experience incredibly easy and smooth.
Cozy and Comfortable
