In the heart of El DoradoCounty wine country

4.8 on February 19, 2018

Cindy and Daryl were perfect hosts for our Valentine's Day getaway. The in rooms are spacious. Ours had a jacuzzi tub and fireplace! Fresh flowers were in our room upon our arrival. Cindy is a master chef. The setting was tranquil with daffodils just beginning to bloom. There are a lot of new wineries since our last visit to Lucinda's Country Inn. We will not wait so long to return the next time.


Warm and friendly, with superior homemade cuisine

4.8 on January 15, 2018

As always, Cindy and Daryl provided a delightful experience, this time for our anniversary. The central location of Lucinda's makes multiple wineries readily accessible and all the proprietors in this region are amazingly hospitable. The Sullivans go above and beyond with their hospitality, however, offering complimentary local and homemade snacks and wines each evening. What sets Lucinda's apart from the crowd though is their affordable choice of onsite dining, offered with some regularity (watch for them!). The farm-to-fork dinners are exquisite and the morning breakfasts are incredible. And perhaps the most enjoyable feature of Lucinda's is the forest in the back leading down to Perry Creek. Beautiful, peaceful, and quiet, the short "backyard" walk is a great way to start every morning or conclude each evening.


wonderful as always!

Lovely stay at Lucinda's Country Inn

3.8 on November 16, 2017

My husband and I stayed in the Vintage suite and our friends stayed in the Laguna Suite across the hall in the main house for three nights. Both suites are quite roomy and very accommodating with all the comforts of home. Lucinda and Daryl are wonderful hosts who know how to do it right! They provide many thoughtful details and amenities to ensure your stay is enjoyable one. Lucinda made us feel right at home ("pick out a mug for your coffee...") and the breakfasts were absolutely delicious. One morning we saw the 'neighborhood deer' wandering past the property. The location of the inn is handy for visiting the wineries in Fair Play.


Gorgeous get a way

My husband and I stayed three nights in the cottage but all the rooms in the main house are wonderful as well. Lucinda made outstanding breakfasts and we enjoyed happy hour on the deck with other couples and Daryl and Lucinda. As we were sitting there, several deer wandered across the property. Wonderful sunset as well! Great wineries and perfect weather. We will be back!..


Excellent stay!

Perfect B&B! Beautiful house with very spacious and well appointed rooms that are more like suites. Very nice and comfortable beds and linens. The hosts are extremely caring and accommodating with all small details thought through for their guests' comfort. Excellent breakfast! Would definitely return and highly recommend.


home away from home

We had the pleasure of spending 2 nights at Lucinda's Country Inn. We were in the Beate Suite - it was very spacious for our family (2 adults, 2 kids). We like being able to spread out. The kitchenette was very convenient. The room is neat and clean. It turns out we didn't spend much time in the room - the surrounding Fair Play area is gorgeous and despite being there mid week we were able to go to a couple open vineyards. The open area of the house with games and the large deck was very comfortable and our kids loved all the board games and puzzles. Breakfast was great and we loved the local wine! Highly recommend!

Innkeeper Response
It is wonderful to read a nice review from a family. We have tried to make Lucinda's comfortable and enjoyable for all our visitors. In this case we are pleased because our Innsitter did a wonderful job of hosting. Thanks Brent. Every now and then we need to sneak away for a day or two mid-week. It was nice to have excellent help minding the ship.

Lucinda's is our Favorite Getaway!

5 on July 03, 2017

This lovely Inn is close to where we live, yet we feel so relaxed here. Lucinda and Daryl are great hosts; they have truly thought of everything. We had the private gazebo breakfast the first morning, which was lovely and relaxing. Speaking of the breakfast- it is really wonderful and we have had different unique dishes each time we have stayed. There are many nearby wineries and other places to explore. We have come twice this year and plan to be back. You will not be sorry for booking a stay at Lucinda's Country Inn!


Tranquil & Charming Place!

This B&B is amazing, it felt just like home! Lucinda & Daryl were Great Hosts, Great Food and Very Friendly. The rooms were cozy, detailed with everything you would need and incredibly clean! We will be back soon for a longer stay!


Great place to stay!

We stayed here after wine tasting in Fairplay. Large, comfortable room on the first floor. Our friends had the room across the hall which was also very large and comfortable. We had arranged for dinner at the Inn. Lucinda made us a wonderful 3 course dinner. Cannot recommend this place enough! We will be back for another visit.

Innkeeper Response
Lucinda wanted to do the B&B because she wanted to meet and greet people from around the world and have a great time helping them have an experience they will never forget. Our design makes people comfortable. We strive to have great hospitality for their fun.
