Wonderful B&B!

5 on September 22, 2014

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.

Innkeeper Response
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.

Outstanding room!

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.

Innkeeper Response

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.

Stayed at Lucinda's because I was attending a wedding at a nearby winery. Cindy and Daryl were wonderful hosts and very accommodating for my time schedule and needing to arrive early because of the wedding time. I loved the Country Suite and definitely will be going back again for a longer visit. One night was not enough!!!

Wonderful place to stay

What a beautiful room! A lot of labor and love when into the design and building. It is so very peaceful up here and we enjoyed watching all of the lovely birds. I've never seen so many hummingbirds in one place. Great breakfast, as always. We really enjoyed being around such kind, generous, and positive people like you! Thank you for a most enjoyable stay. Lucille King and Greg Kruckewitt

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.

Lucinda's Country Inn is only 2 hours from our home and it is the perfect place for us to get refreshed and restored from our hectic lives. The in is very quiet the rooms are exceptionally large and comfortable. Each room has a deck facing the Oaks, perfect for "happy hour." The breakfasts are large and always exceptional. Cindy and Daryl's hospitality is what keeps us coming back.
