Your Comfort is Our Main Concern

Lucinda’s Country Inn in El Dorado County was designed to be a bed and breakfast. We have thought of everything to make your stay and memories special. Each of our spacious lodging options features a unique and vibrant theme, color scheme and decor, making each a special, spacious retreat of its own. You will experience quiet, seductively secluded splendor no matter which you choose.

Each guest suite has a separate bed area, a king-size bed with pillow-top mattress and reading lights on the wall on each side of the bed; a sitting area with remote-controlled fireplace and a flat screen TV with HD DirecTV and DVD player; a snack bar (with a snack basket filled with popcorn, hot chocolate and snack bars) and a mini refrigerator, microwave, Keurig coffee maker, place settings (we’ve even thrown in a wine opener), and sink; and a large bathroom. All have microfiber sheets and robes. There are plush Bamboo towels to make you warm and comfortable. Each room features a different view from its private deck. Relax with your afternoon wine or morning coffee at the table in the snack area, in comfort in the sitting area, or outside on your deck.

Individually controlled heat and air conditioning ensure your year-round comfort; ceiling fans are located throughout the inn. You may find that there is little need to use air conditioning in the summer. Just open your windows with the fan going to enjoy the country quiet and the cool, fresh pine-scented air.

We provide complimentary sodas, water and cream in each room’s refrigerator; and hair dryers and magnifying make-up mirrors, including make-up removal cloths can be found in each room’s bathroom. “Emergency Overnight Kits” are available in case you forgot something. Of course, we are here to make certain your stay is complete and comfortable, so please let us know if you need anything at all.

We love groups! In fact, we give a group discount when you book three rooms or more. Thanks to our hi-tech hide-a-beds in the Laguna and Beate Suites, we can very comfortably accommodate two couples in either suite. To let you know that we do love groups, please go to Lucinda’s Events for some great group activities.


Our goal is to pamper you during your stay in the Fair Play Wine Country. We pride ourselves with the hospitality we give to help you become part of the Lucinda’s Country Inn family. In return for our respect to you as part of our family, we ask that you follow our policies and be courteous for your fellow guests.
