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

We love the Fitzpatrick winery and lodge! The views are marvelous, the hospitality is unmatched. Diana is a gracious host and a fantastic cook. We have come back year after year for visits and wine festivals. The deck offeres a relaxing place to enjoy a bottle of wine and watch the sunset. I just got word that they are cancelling... More

This is the most beautiful rustic bed and breakfast tucked in the Sierra Foothills in Eldorado County wine country. It has recently been sold, but the original owners/winemakers are still running it. The new owners renovated all of the rooms/bathrooms so all now have stand-up showers. The view out over the valley is spectacular. All of their wines are organic,... More

We had the good fortune to spend an evening at the Fitzpatrick Lodge last weekend (12/22/12) as part of a visit with some friends. What a remarkable place! Everything was perfect, from the service to the amenities. The recently remodeled rooms were wonderfully romantic, each having a gas-burning, faus wood stove, comfortable bed, and excellent furnishings. We stayed in the... More
