Had another wonderful experience staying at Lucinda's. Celebrated my best friend's 60th Birthday. Enjoyed wine tasting during the day. Then "Happy Hour" with Daryl and Cindy hosting which was very nice. The Cottage Guest House was great! Cute little sitting area/kitchen. Nice size bedroom and bathroom. Large bathtub with jets . Electric fireplace between the bedroom and the bathtub. Excellent breakfast in the morning in the main kitchen with yummy cookie to go :) Daryl and Cindy make you feel like you are family and are great Host and Hostess. Thank you for another OUTSTANDING visit # 11 . Sheryl

We had a marvelous time celebrating our anniversary at Lucinda's Country Inn! Cindy and Daryl are incredibly hospitable and offer the perfect environment for an idyllic getaway. The Vineyard Suite was immaculate and very comfortable and the food was wonderful. We also enjoyed our stop at Windwalker Vineyard before we left town. This was our first visit, and we're already looking forward to the next one. Thank you! ~ Mark and Anne Kahren, Sacramento

We really enjoyed our stay at Lucinda's Country Inn. The room was lovely and it was very peaceful there, but what made it really special was our hosts Tom and Liz. I loved the decor of our suite and it was so spacious. The amenities in the room were also top notch: the soaps, the roomy shower and the beautiful sheets and colors. Our breakfast the next morning was really beautiful. Thank you to our hosts for making us feel welcome and special.

Lucinda’s Country Inn was everything we could have hoped for in a special place to celebrate our anniversary. Daryl and Cindy offer exceptional hospitality! Their Inn is a wonderful retreat. The Vineyard Suite was luxurious and immaculate and the food was delicious! This was our first visit, and we’re already looking for an opportunity to return.

We have stayed here many times and it feels like visiting relatives out in the country - only with more privacy. We like the Vineyard Suite, but all suites have sitting areas, wet bars with microwaves and fridges, and outdoor sitting areas. Friends and relatives who have stayed there with us have all been happy with their suites. Beds are beyond comfortable, and the sealed gas fireplaces take the chill off the morning or evening air. The location is simply lovely. Set in groves of ancient trees, birds of many varieties and other critters abound. Cindy and Daryl could not be more welcoming or the breakfasts better and more abundant. With advance notice, they will prepare a lovely multi-course dinner for you, with wine. Their advice has led us to many small wineries we would otherwise not have tried and to delightful conversations with the owners and wine makers. (Obviously, Napafication has not reached Fair Play.)
We designed and built Lucinda's to be a comfortable, elegant B&B with all those things that make our guests feel at home. It it wonderful to have guests express their appreciation for everything we have done and continue to do everyday. It's TRUE Fair Play has not been Napafied

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.
