As we drove up to Lucinda's I first noticed the setting which was all natural and beautiful. The rooms are all very spacious, like a one bedroom apartment and each has a different theme, the bathrooms are fabulous. It was so nice to get up to coffee, juice, fresh fruit, hash browns, eggs, fresh made scones. We are planning on bringing friend next time.

In Sept. 2014, we were in town for a wedding and got to stay at Lucinda's Country Inn. The vineyard suite was perfect. Very clean, spacious and modern. We told Cindy about my husband's gluten-free diet. She went above and beyond every morning that we stayed there (Saturday+Sunday). Often times, gf items aren't that great BUT the items by Cindy were WONDERFUL! Hands down, the best gf pancakes ever! They were crispy on the outside and light and fluffy on the inside. My husband was in heaven. Thank you very much Cindy for your wonderful hospitality.
Thank you for your kind review. I am always looking for recipes to use for all my guests and all dietary needs. I often use recipes that I adapt to make more my style of cooking.

We stayed in the whimsical Laguna room. Very nice, large room. So large that we could have lived in it! Also a very large, yummy breakfast. Cindy and Daryl were very friendly and helpful.
Thank you for your nice review. Cindy and I always strive to make your visit comfortable and enjoyable.There have been other guests commenting about the size of the suites. In fact several have said the suites here are bigger than their first apartment as a married couple.

We have stayed at Lucinda's multiple times before. We have never been disappointed. The owners are friendly and organized and are available for all of our needs. We have stayed in about all the of rooms at one time or another and find all of them to be clean and comfortable. We truly enjoy the surrounding wine country and the peaceful setting of the location. We plan to stay at Lucinda's many more times.

This is a quaint B&B tucked into Fair Play, CA which has some very nice, friendly wineries within the community. The hospitality is above the fray, the breakfast is excellent, and the bottle share every afternoon is fun. This couple has a great sense of the area and what it takes to make quests feel at home. The wine community is friendly and helpful, you don't even need a car to visit many fine wineries, but take one to transport your reasonably priced finds.
