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...

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...

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...

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,...

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...

On the way from Lake Tahoe to Yosemite we got stuck in that wonderful wine region El Colorad-Applehill-Summerset-Fair Play. A lovely region and a must see for all California tourists. Finding a nice and decent Hotel turned out to be a little bit more difficult for us. However, by coincidence we found Fitzpatrick. Driving there was already an pleasant experience....

My husband & I stayed one night to celebrate our parents anniversary. What a neat place!! We went wine tasting during the day, took a nap, enjoyed "pizza night" and then hit the hot tub.

“The French Room is the largest, and very nice”
 of 5 bubbles solanodoug, 25 Mar 2015 | Read review
“All rooms are very nicely decorated, appointed, and comfortable but our preference is definitely the upstairs French Room with panoramic view of vineyard and Sierras. It has its own balcony, a window seat/daybed, a cast-iron fireplace, and a truly luxurious bathroom; it gets good morning sun and is shaded in the afternoon.”
