Very nice out of the way place to stay if you're out wine tasting in the Fair Play (Sierra foothills wine country). Cindy and Daryl were helpful and accommodating. Rooms are spacious and have everything you'd want in a first class B&B. Sean fixed us an excellent salmon dinner. Breakfast was good as well.

We have stayed at a lot of B&Bs over the years. Lucinda's is by far the nicest we have ever stayed at. Rooms are all spectacular, value is off the charts and Cindy and Darryl are incredible hosts. We will be back again- sooner rather than later.

This was our first time at this particular B&B in the FairPlay area of ElDorado county but we will be back. The facility itself is beautifully built and furnished and the bed and amenities were excellent. Both Cindy and Daryl were gracious and extremely in giving us information on changes in wineries,activities and eating facilities that have happened since we last visited the area. The breakfast was superb. All in all,an excellent stay.

We stayed at Lucinda's one Saturday night not too long ago and had a great time. Wine and snacks in front of the fireplace in the Great Room. Good conversation with other folks. The bed was great with wonderful sheets and the robes were to die for. Breakfast was one of Lucinda's specialties: Cheese Souffle. We were in the Fair Play Cottage which was great cuz we watched a few DVDs and enjoyed a whirlpool bath while watching the two-sided fireplace. Great value for what little amount of money we paid. Don't wait for your chance to stay at Lucinda's.
