The Carriage House at West 12 Ranch is nestled near the front of a 40 acre horse ranch in Lodi's wine country. Featuring unique vintage and reproduction furniture, this modern home will fuel your imagination.
The Ranch is also home to a very popular outdoor photo studio. No pets are in the residence, but there are multiple animals on property, including cats, dogs, Thoroughbred racehorses, and Kiger Mustangs. Come enjoy this truly one-of-a-kind experience.

The space
Welcome to your home away from home! The Carriage House has been furnished with antiques and vintage items, including chandeliers and decorative pieces. The 1700 sf. Carriage House is nestled on an active Thoroughbred horse ranch and outdoor photo studio, but the house itself is very quiet and offers privacy, with a view of the horse pastures from almost every room.

The living room includes a big screen TV with a number of DVDs, VHS movies, and games. The kitchen is fully stocked with dishes, silverware, glassware, pots, pans, baking dishes, fry pans, toaster, microwave, and blender, and includes a side by side refrigerator/freezer. There is a washer and dryer in the laundry room, and all linens are provided.

Guest access
Please make the Carriage House your home away from home. Extra towels, blankets, and pillows can be found in the hall cupboard, and you are welcome to use the washer and dryer, but you will need to bring your own soap. While we do not keep the kitchen specifically stocked, please help yourself to anything provided.

As for the ranch itself, please feel free to wander our lovely property. We ask that you do NOT enter any pastures without permission, but many of the horses will stick their heads over the fences for attention and you are welcome to pet them. Foals are typically born February-April, and please let us know if you would like to be woken up to watch should a mare foal overnight during your stay.

Guests are also welcome to help feed the horses (close-toed shoes mandatory) and chickens, and to help collect the eggs. Please ask Barb for details on where and when to meet our staff during your stay.

Other things to note
If you are looking for a country life setting complete with chickens, ducks,
horses, cats, and Bokeh, the ranch dog, welcome. We believe we have the best of both worlds surrounded by vineyards but surrounded by the amenities of town. You can walk to Michael David Winery by back roads (about 2 miles), and a few guests have.

The ranch is located next to railroad track which is active. Guests at the Carriage House have said that they notice the first train or two, but then barely realize they're passing.

Typically, for about four weeks in late summer, the local vineyards use air cannons to keep the birds away. They are set to timers, and most people quickly tune out the sound. They turn on at dawn, then are turned off at sunset. Even guests who are sensitive to sound have remarked on how peaceful the ranch is, so we expect you will find the same.

Location

Lodi, California, United States

The beautiful town of Lodi has become a destination point with its multitude of wineries, restaurants, and festivals. On Thursday evenings in summer there is a large Farmers Market that takes over Old Town Lodi, and we are learning that line dancing can be found almost every night of the week locally. We are perfectly situated between Van Ruiten Winery and internationally known Michael David Winery which is within walking/biking distance of the West 12 Ranch Carriage House.

I am a Christian wife, mother, rancher, artist. I love sunflowers and hollyhocks, and hunting for vintage treasures! I get excited over a new great recipe. I am an easy guest, and I think a gracious hostess with guests .

The hosts, Matt and Barbara, or one of their staff are always on the ranch and are only a phone call or text away. We let our guests set the level of interaction - some guests prefer a private get-away, while others quickly become like family.
