At Fish Camp, the Southern Gateway to Yosemite, sits an elegant, Victorian-style B&B that, although recently-built, mirrors the rich 150-year history and timeless natural majesty of famed, protected “wild” lands, Yosemite National Park! Boasting four million international visitors annually, Yosemite is both “paradise” and “unrivalled tourist destination” – an innkeeper’s dream come true!
Amidst the Civil War on June 30, 1864, President Abraham Lincoln signed the Yosemite Grant Act, establishing Yosemite Valley as the first protected “wild” land for all time. In 2014, Yosemite National Park celebrated the 150th Anniversary of this Act that paved the way for establishment of national parks here and abroad. The novel, 19th century concept of “national parks” has since become known around the world as America’s “best idea,” with Victorian Americans, such as Abraham Lincoln, Teddy Roosevelt and John Muir, heralded as “visionaries.” Their advocacy to protect our Nation’s awe-inspiring natural beauty finally caused America to understand its magical wilderness as both national inheritance and patriotic responsibility.
A mere two miles from the Yosemite National Park boundary, Fish Camp is the closest community to Yosemite’s southern entrance. At an elevation of 5,062 feet, the community straddles California State Route 41, the Southern Yosemite Highway that becomes Wawona Road once in the Park. The year-round, crisp mountain air community offers an ideal retreat, particularly for those looking to escape summer heat, and the perfect setting for TripAdvisor’s highly-rated Tin Lizzie Inn, a Victorian-style, turn-key B&B boasting approximately 4,384/SF centers a Mariposa County parcel with approximately 9,583/SF.
The hospitality opportunity also will include, if desired, the innkeepers' celebrated and separately incorporated Yosemite tour business with its fleet of treasured vintage motorcars, including Ford Model A’s -- a 1929 Roadster and a 1931 Deluxe Roadster.
