Arrive to our lovely cottage situated on rustic Bella Donna Estate with dramatic entrance; Near 70 Lodi wineries & UOP. Cottage comfortably fits 2 w/ full kitchen / internet. Private patio. Also community space we share is garden pool, BBQ, animals, love.
We have some recreation items including two cruiser bikes, water cooler, beach or picnic chairs for day outings and floating devices for swimming pool. If you have blue tooth, you can sync up with the outdoor block rocker for music at pool.

The space

It's a simply beautiful and historic country property (circa 1928); casual and laid back yet elegant and romantic. Lovingly stewarded and we continue to restore all aspects. The cottage you will stay in is cozy and the estate grounds are perfect to meditate, read, reflect, or swim and sunbath by the gorgeous garden pool. Guests are welcome to use grounds as seating spaces and tables throughout however you have your own gated and private patio that's part of the cottage reservation. Restoration.

Guests with well trained pets are welcome and will incur an additional cleaning fee.

Guest access

Private iron gate with remote access. Check-in time is 3:00pm or after. Check-out is up until 12:30 pm on day of departure.

Interaction with guests

Interaction is made upon your arrival greeting and departure farewell by host, Hannah. As this is our family home you may engage family members on the property grounds as well yet we have discovered that's fairly minimal - so your space in the cottage is really your own during reservation.

Other things to note

This is a country property in an agriculturally zoned area not within city limits; so make sure you are seeking a rustic environment with some animals, maybe a pile of leaves, free range chickens pecking around the property, some equipment out or a worker on grounds for property maintenance/ planting, etc. during your stay.

My husband, 18mo son, and I spent a night at Mary's beautiful property. We loved lots of things such as the cute nautical decor, strong water pressure, comfy bed, ducks and chickens, friendly dogs, fast wifi inside the cottage, fresh eggs from Mary, and their beautiful pool area with a diving board. The cottage is conveniently located near the Lodi wineries too! Only surprise is that this was a studio, not a 1-bedroom. Didn't realize that so it was difficult to have our baby sleep in the same room as us... thus we left a day early. Also would have loved some basics like coffee and soap, but there's a convenient store next door so not a huge deal. If you're looking for some place rustic, charming, and quiet for a Lodi getaway, I'd highly recommend this Airbnb.

Very relaxing weekend, we enjoyed the swimming pool, very easy to find groceries. It was quiet, and enjoyed the company of the chickens!

Mary and David are lovely folks with a little slice of heaven. The pool is awesome. The yard is out of Martha Stewart. There are ducks and other animals that were adorable. They had plenty of room and just added to the charm. My son and I had a blast.

We stayed here for a couple of days with our 18 months old daughter. This place is perfect for kids who loves animals and for adults who want to have a restful trip. The property is huge with a lot of different spots to relax. The cottage is really nice and clean and well equipped. David and Mary were really accommodating and easy to spoke to. We really enjoy our stay here.

We had a really nice time at this property. Hannah was very easy to get in touch with and fast to respond. Our young daughter loved wandering around in the yard with the chickens and the ducks and also the pool. They also have two large dogs who were both really great. The internet was very fast, which was great. We would definitely stay here again if needed.

I had the most amazing stay at Mary and Davis place. Although I had to visit the area under sad circumstances...this gem of a property provided peace and solace. The song birds, chickens, ducks and the doggies added to the charm of this special place. The apartment is comfortable furnished and the kitchen had everything I needed. The Wi-FI was excellent. There is a little market right next door for basic supplies and drinks. And the best Mexican food ever is just down the road. I had a number of errands to run each day in the Stockton area....but at the end of each day I loved coming back to Bella Donna. I know I will be back to visit family in the Stockton area and when I do I hope I can reside at Bella Donna.

I stayed over 30 days, and it was the perfect stay. I can't say enough about how much I enjoyed staying here- everything was just right. Looking forward to future business trips to the area and having the chance to stay here again.

Come to our beautiful, historic and most elegant estate with a lovely cottage for you in the Central Valley near the Lodi Wine Country and University of the Pacific.

We like to travel and do interesting stuff: we were pilgrims on the Camino de Santiago in España walking from town to town across the gorgeous Spanish countryside (actually the Camino de Ignacio). This was the most physically challenging yet transformational engagement we have done as a couple.

We also love drives and fun anywhere in Northern California along the American and Russian Rivers, Cache Creek, Gold Country exploration in Amador County, Sonoma and Napa, and the mud baths at Calistoga is a favorite.

On weekends we may work the property along with tending to sheep, lounging by the pool, and restoring different aspects of Bella Donna - maybe a bit of yoga on the property or at the studio. After a hard day's work we like to head over to one of the 50+ wineries in our community. We have a few favorites.

We are busy executives so Bella Donna is both a place for retreat, reflection and restoration. Our friends love to come out to our home and stay in in a guest room for a restorative getaway.
