About Marne Simpson
Hi! We are George and Lynnette (Mettler) Cole the owners of the Tokay Heritage House. We met in 1968 in Sacramento, California when George was an Air Force Officer in flight training and I was a student at Sacramento State College. We married in 1970. I grew up in the house that is now Tokay Heritage, while George grew up in the state of West Virginia. George and I moved around the country while in the Air Force. In 1981, we and our three children made our way to Apple Valley, in southern California, which is our current family home. We are both retired from public education, I as a classroom teacher and George as an Administrator. In 2010, I inherited the Tokay house, and we decided to keep the house as a family vacation home. We remodeled the entire 70 year old house to hopefully last another 70 years. We enjoy sharing our home with friends and family and decided to widen that circle by sharing it on VRBO. We hope we can be a part of your discovery of the this lovely and interesting area of California. I hope you enjoy your stay in our home, Lynnette (Mettler) and George Cole
Marne Simpson purchased this House in 1941
Why Marne Simpson chose Lodi
Lodi has changed so much since I moved away. We always enjoy wine tasting, good restaurants, Lodi Lake, the surrounding areas and just relaxing in the quiet countryside. To us, Lodi is a perfect place to be in itself or to visit local attractions for a day trip. Just a short drive to the east and you are in the Sierra Mountains or head west and enjoy the Pacific Ocean beaches or San Francisco Bay Area.
What makes this House unique
Tokay Heritage House is the perfect place to get a feel for the laid-back, rural lifestyle. There are beautiful vineyard and country views out every window and along every road leading you to the home. The house has been filled with love and history and is perfect for your family and friends to create everlasting memories together.

Charming, well appointed, and private
We enjoyed our weekend stay and will be booking again in the future. This is a charming home in a private area. It was well appointed and clean. One friend commented that this was the first place we've stayed that actually had sharp kitchen knives. Our group was looking for a place to relax and just hang out and this place was perfect. The backyard patio was large and very comfortable with nice landscaping. We enjoyed playing corn-hole in the backyard on the boards and beanbags provided. The owner has left an informative manual and everything was clear and simple on arrival and departure.
This is the most perfect house for a special occasion that requires you to take your fur babies on vacation with you. The house is full of country charm and it was 100% pet friendly. I will definitely stay at this property again.
Thank you for opening your house up for our whole family to enjoy.
Perfect for SO many things!
Wedding? Girls weekend? Bachelorette wine tasting weekend? Baby shower? Just work? The list goes on! This venue/home is absolutely amazing (the only thing missing is a hot tub for under the star-filled the sky at night) I am a frequent VRBO-er and have to be honest, rarely have a negative experience. I had to come up for a work event and realizing it was last minute I didn't want to travel back and forth for the 4 days. I came across this listing and it was everything we wanted and more. It gave me comfort after a heat-filled day outside. Door dash made my life heaven with nightly deliveries. The house is clearly loved and not just a money maker but their families own pride and joy. The kitchen is amply equipped, the bedrooms amazingly appointed, I slept in probably the BEST bed I have ever been in while out of town, I actually slept peacefully. I had two dogs with me for the event, the back yard was AMAZING! They all enjoyed unwinding after a long day of work. Being fully fenced with a fire pit allowed me and a girlfriend on night one relax next to the fire pit while we caught up on the days events. I have competed here so many times and stayed in mediocre sub-par hotels I wish I had known before! The surroundings are private, quiet, and serene nestled into a vineyard on a dead-end road however you are just MINUTES from everything. The owners were accommodating to my early check-in and even offered me an extra night to just relax before my drive home. I will be staying here again for my next event if they will have me, and recommending this property to other enthusiasts who work and compete in dog sports in this area.
Perfect little getaway with wine involved.
Property was perfect for six of us. It was so great they allow dogs because our 4 legged family members loved our stay too. Great place to stay to check out the Lodi vineyards. We will definitely be back.
Fantastic property! So cozy and yet great for a family.
This house is just charming. We really enjoyed spending the week at Tokay Heritage House.
My kids enjoyed playing cornhole, watching dvds, and doing the treasure hunt. We were also there during cherry picking time and the farm next door offers you pick cherries. So we did that and then made cherry cobbler in that amazing kitchen.
Now we’ve stayed in rentals that said the kitchen was fully stocked, but really only had college student essentials. Not this one, from nice frying pans to good quality knives they had it all.
My favorite part of the house had to be the backyard. We spent every morning eating breakfast out there, enjoying the smells of the honeysuckle and seeing all the hummingbirds. The little gas fire pit was nice and the kids even made s’mores.
Fantastic base for visiting wineries
Great Stay! The accommodations exceeded our expectations. The house was well provisioned, especially the kitchen and back deck. The location made a great center of operations for visiting Lodi wineries.
