We had stayed at Fitzpatrick's with the previous owners a few times, and enjoyed our stays. This was the first time back with the new owners. We booked the French Room for 2 nights over the Valentines weekend, it was also our 30th wedding anniversary. Michael was very helpful, and showed us all the new amenities in the room. The... More

We celebrated Brenda's birthday here the first weekend in November and had a great time. Breakfast was fabulous. Lunches, including pizza done in brick oven, are great, as is selection of wines. Mike, and everyone on the staff, was wonderful with just a lot of friendly, neat little personal touches to make our stay enjoyable, indeed memorable. TravelMonkeyCA's review comparing... More

My husband, daughter and her husband spent 2 nights at Fitzpatrick's in July. We actually had the place to ourselves and enjoy it immensely (not because we were alone, but because it is such an beautiful place). Mike and his dog Patrick greeted us with open arms and wagging tail as we arrived. Our rooms were absolutely divine and the... More

This is similar to a Napa vacation -- that is, if you wanted to spend $1,200 per night on a similar room in the summer and be stuck in crowds all day. Instead, it's the Sierra Foothills, with equally awesome wine and food, just a little more off the beaten path. The French room room was large and wonderful, with... More

Mike, "the man of all hats" was extremely welcoming and took care of everything from cooking a delicious breakfast, checking us in, and doing all the maintenance around the lodge. Everyone we met at the lodge was wonderful. I would not plan on going to this quaint B&B during the heat of the summer, however. The A/C system is too... More

Wife and I spent 1 night in the French room which is absolutely beautiful. Incredibly comfortable bed that was very difficult to leave in the morning. The good thing about getting out of bed though is the tasty and beautifully presented breakfast that is included. Michael Sully is a wonderful and warmly gracious host who makes you feel right at...

First of all: we have never met the former owners. so we have NO comparison to the past. In fact - while planning our annual trip to california ( we are from Germany) - we looked for something special , a silent and comfortable place which is also childfriendly at the same time on our way from Reno to San...

We have been fans of this winery and Inn for some years now and we made a return visit since the remodel and change of ownership. Honestly, we did not know what to expect, but we went with an open mind hoping to find the same charm. I will say that the room rates are higher so that they can... More

10 of us had the entire lodge for the Fair Play Wine Festival. The lodge has 5 rooms, each decorated in a different theme. My husband and I had what was formerly known as the "wine-makers suite" but is now known as the "French Room" - I'll let you guess why! All the rooms were redesigned and upgraded and all... More
