Holiday Rental House
Welcome to the Sideways House, named for its gracious entrance located on the side of the home, and a nod to the iconic movie that put wine tasting on the map. This stately home was built in 1926 and is perfectly located on one of 'old' Lodi's most desirable tree-lined streets walking distance to tasting rooms, restaurants, theaters, parks and downtown. This gorgeous home has been recently redecorated and lovingly brought back to her original grandeur. There is a large living room with beautiful, original molding, hardwood floors and grand windows. Ample comfortable seating is provided and a flatscreen TV, and fireplace will help you feel right at home. The living room opens up into a fun bar area that also provides access to the outside eating area.

The Sideways house was so charming and has everything you need for a getaway to Lodi! Enjoyed wine tasting during the day, then back to the house for a spirited bocce ball game...Great back yard!..Topped off the weekend with a great dinner. The kitchen is well stocked.Will definitely go again...Owners were gracious.

Family Anniversary get together
We had a great time celebrating 4 sibling anniversaries. Lisa was a fine host and all questions were quickly answered before and after stay. Great location near downtown Lodi with easy walking distance to food and wine tastings. House has been modernized but retains the grand old house feel. Would recommend to even hard to please family and friends!

The Sideways House is beautiful inside & out!
We stayed the weekend at the Sideways House in Lodi for a family wedding in Stockton. It was within 10 mins driving distance and was centrally located in the heart of Lodi close to restaurants and retail shopping. The house was beautiful inside and out. We fit 2 families with children comfortably, and the house had all of the amenities you could think of. There was even extra bags of Ice in the freezer (Yes!). If you're considering a hotel in the area, for just a little bit more than the cost of a room per couple, this house is more than worth it! We felt right at home. Thank you!

I wish I could have stayed longer!
This is an unbelievable property! Everything is PERFECT! 6 of us visited to celebrate a dear friend's birthday. We started with cocktails in the cute bar area and headed out for a few games of bocce- so fun! Then we were able to walk to a fantastic restaurant (a few blocks away) and not worry about driving. After dinner we "bar hopped" to a few of the local establishments- what FUN! and again- NO DRIVING- we could do whatever we wanted. We headed back to the house where we had cake in the gorgeous dining room. The next morning coffee and pastries at another local eatery. The owners have outdone themselves- I wish we had more time here, the kitchen has everything- we could have BBQd and had more meals at home- you need time to enjoy the house- the downtown area, etc. I will be BACK! Next time I'll enjoy the Spa on property as well :)
