Contemporary Comfort • All Suites • Scrumptious Buffet Breakfast

Lucinda's Country Inn is a contemporary, arts and craftsman-style home tucked into the Sierra Foothills in Fair Play. From the minute you walk into any of the 600+ sq.ft. suites, you feel pampered. With micro-fiber sheets, crisp linen napkins at breakfast; Lucinda's makes your stay enjoyable and luxurious. A pillow-topped king-size bed with reading lights on the wall, sitting area, eating area and snack bar with coffee maker, sink, microwave and refrigerator -- all are provided to make your stay comfortable.

Four themed suites and a separate cottage provide you with seductively, secluded splendor. Each suite is designed with your comfort and privacy in mind -- fireplaces, private deck or porch, individually controlled heat and air conditioning, robes, snack bar, and more. Evening wine and hors d'oeuvres are hosted in the Great Room, where guests can talk about the day's activities, work on the community puzzle, or browse through the books and DVDs in the “Kinkade” library. The spacious rear deck offers a place to enjoy morning coffee or afternoon wine while you are tucked into the trees; it's also a great place to stargaze. In cool weather, the outdoor fireplace will take away the chill. Enjoy our sumptuous hot buffet breakfast in the dining room.

Plan your family retreat, executives' getaways, group outings, wedding or business retreats at Lucinda's Country Inn. We provide Internet connection, WIFI, telephone, conference tables and more to meet your needs with meeting space for up to 30.

Live Oaks, Ponderosa Pines, majestic Cedars and of course our 125+ year-old Heritage Oak surround the inn with sights and sounds not found elsewhere. Birds singing, hummingbirds feeding and squirrels, turkey, deer, fox and more roam freely.

Rooms and Rates

Vineyard Suite- Watch the stars through the skylight over the king-size bed in the raised bed area, bathed with lavender and purple colored walls. A romantic see-through fireplace separates the sitting area from the bed area. Relax in the full body shower with its four body sprays, the rain head or the hand-held. Before you go outside to the covered deck, tucked into the heritage oak tree, get your glass of wine or morning coffee from the snack bar with its coffee maker, microwave, sink and refrigerator.

Laguna Suite - Bright colors reminiscent of the seaside town of Laguna Beach highlight the suite. Aquamarine, like the ocean, washes over the bed area and sitting room walls. A futon and wing chair provide lounging comfort. The walk-in shower with a rock wall and waterfall has a "sandy beach" floor. A wall-mounted vessel sink with a wall faucet gives a touch of elegance. On starry nights gaze at the Milky Way from the private deck. This is the accessible suite for the Inn.
Beate Suite - When you walk into the Beate Suite you are swept into the feel of Old World charm and elegance. Escape into the Romanesque tub to soak your troubles away. Golden-hued tile surround you in the large shower. Black granite with the white sink completes the richness of the European elegance of the bath. Arches, hand-blown glass balls, prints and original paintings give the Suite its European presence.

Country Suite - Soothing colors warm the suite when the morning sun flows through oak leaves into both the sitting area and the raised bed area. The oval country throw rug provides a homey feel while you enjoy the see through fireplace from the love seat in the sitting area. A large whirlpool tub gives two a romantic, relaxing experience. (Ask about an in suite massage.) The large shower with the built in bench completes your quiet country romantic getaway.

Fair Play Cottage - Step into the privacy of your own retreat, replete with a whirlpool tub for two, a shower with a window overlooking the woods and a spacious porch to sit and relax with your morning coffee or afternoon wine. The floors are pine-milled from trees harvested from the property. Enjoy the warmth of the see-through fireplace on cool nights, from either the tub or the bed. (A catered dinner can be provided with advance notice.)

Rates: See our website for our specials for the suites and cottage whose standard rates range from $150 to $225.
