lodi dog friendly

We have never encountered an inn with a winery tasting room on site before, until we came to Lodi. I had driven through Lodi before but never stopped to visit … didn’t seem like much of a place but boy I was wrong… there is even a Panera’s bakery… yay…

Renae, the owner has several dogs including Yorkies. Lorissa, the innkeeper, gave Cici steak and potatoes plus some leftovers, yum. Cici also got to roam free and played with three dogs, an on site rat terrier named Dude, and Lorissa’s two dogs, a Canadian retriever (looks like a small Golden) named Jake and her buddy Callie the lab… Cici always tries to take sticks and balls away from other dogs but Callie did not let her get away with that. Cici got a bath and a swim in the pond, although it was a bit rocky for her.


The pond view was straight outside the blue room where we stayed, furnished with faux quilt and denim, a tv, fireplace, desk, and overhead fan… the bathroom was across the hallway not part of the room… there is a real kitchen in the house with four other rooms… two are dog friendly… a gorgeous romantic suite for couples, a lovely living and dining room… plus the wine tasting room across from the inn.., the Vino Con Brio Winery…



Downtown historic Lodi had a bunch of shops, including a health food store, no pet shops. The Wine and Visitor’s Center told me that there were no dog friendly wineries in Lodi but obviously they were wrong. Guests at the Amorosa told me that Michael and David have a farm cafe and D’Art also are supposed to be dog friendly. Check them out…
