Overlooking El Dorado’s wine country, Fitzpatrick’s country-style inn commands a Sierra Foothill hilltop at 2500' elevation with spectacular 360-degree views. The handcrafted massive log Lodge sits atop the underground wine cellar and houses the wine tasting room and five guest rooms all with private baths. See our Rooms
Guests can enjoy many common areas at the Lodge. A large deck seasonally complete with umbrellas and tables provides guests with soaring views of the Sierra Foothills and some High Sierra snow-covered peaks. Located on the Eastside of the tall expansive log Lodge, the deck becomes shaded in the summer by late afternoon creating a pleasant retreat from the hot summer sun. For Winter and Spring guests and visitors can find the warmth of the sun in our new south-side free-form garden patio. At night our guests gaze out and up into an outrageous star-filled sky that only our rural foothill setting away from city lights can offer.
The Great Room
with its high ceiling log architecture and warming fire becomes the ideal place to sit in comfy sofas or at the great table to play cards & games with new-found friends or make your own music with instruments here.The perimeter of the Great Room is fitted with comfortable bench seating with lots of pillows.
Off the Great Room is a viewing deck outside under the stars with our spa. Picture yourself up to your neck in warm water on a crisp fall or winter night taking in the incredible night sky from our hilltop.
Another place of retreat is the Overlook upstairs where the sofa beckon guests to relax a moment in front of the 60” flat screen and either enjoy the many options of Dish Network satellite TV with HBO and premium movie channels, bring a DVD or BLUERAY or pick one from our growing selection or simply socialize. Free WiFi is provided throughout the Lodge.
Situated in the middle of 40 acres, guests can explore both vineyards and perimeter woodland walking trail casually or in vigorous exercise. If you want to burn some calories our hilltop is waiting to tucker you out. Many guests find fun and exercise swimming in our 25 meter lap pool (usually warm enough between May and early October).
As you can see, regardless of the California foothill weather, our guests have numerous opportunities to relax or mingle outside their room accommodations.
