“Amazing Stay at the Tin Lizzie Inn”
Reviewed 13 October 2008

David and Sharon are the owners of the Tin Lizzie Inn, however, it feels more like you are staying with relatives. Nothing is too much trouble, The Inn is adorable, every detail has been meticulously planned and is exquisite, unlike any B&B we have stayed in before. We had the cottage which is beautiful with its own parlour and bedroom, however, if you can push the boat out stay in the Suite, it looked amazing.
The attention to detail doesn't stop at the furnishings and the house but the food and the afternoon treats were also amazing. We took breakfast on our patio and on our second day on the front porch and both days the food was excellent.
David and Sharon set us a fire one evening and provided us with marshmallows to roast and popcorn - a truely memorable evening.
I recommend The Tin Lizzie Inn to anybody travelling to Yosemite, it was truely a highlight of our holiday in California.

We stayed at the Tin Lizzie Inn for 3 nights as part of a 16 day tour of California.

I had spent a long time looking for accomodation in Yosemite as most places seemed to be over-priced for what they offered.
Although there had only been one previous review on this forum for the Inn, as soon as I spoke to Sheron to arrrange the booking I was confident that this was the place for us.

Fish Camp is only about 2 miles from the south gate park entrance and is just a pretty little village with a few Inns and a large hotel (Tenaya Lodge - not visible from the road).

The Inn is set back off the main road so there was very little noise apart from the local wildlife.

The Inn offers 2 rooms - a cute little 2 storey cottage (where we stayed) which is an annexe to the main house and a suite which covers the whole floor of the main house. The place was clean as a whistle with fantastically comfy beds and fluffy robes and towels.

David and Sheron are delightful hosts and seem genuinely interested in their guests. They are happy to leave you be to make your own plans or will assist with restaurant bookings and ideas for places to go if you wish.

Sheron served up a real gourmet 3 course breakfast every day (the most delicious we had during our trip) and you can eat it out on the front porch watching the birds and squirrels in the trees.

David also made us a fire pit in the evenings to sit and warm and toast marshmellows on - delicious!

As well as running a super B&B, David also hires out vintage Model A cars - and although it was a splurge, it really was worth it to drive around Yosemite in for the day.

From the Inn you can walk across the road to eat and drink at the Tenaya Lodge which has a casual and a fine dining restaurant or there is another restaurant (Narrow Guauge Inn) about a mile or so down the road.

Of all the places we stayed in on this trip, the Tin Lizzie was the most charming - not only because of its magical setting, but also because of its super hosts.

Wow! This was the nicest vacation that we ever had. The inn was so nice and our host was spectacular. She tended to our every need and was so gracious. Other establishments should take lessons. The inn was immaculate and the food was phenomenal. I would highly recommend staying here.

  • Liked — The inn was gorgeous.
  • Disliked — I wish we got to eat more of the wonderful food.
