Tin Lizzie Inn at Yosemite

7730 Laurel Way , Fish Camp, CA 93623 USA (Show map)


This beautiful Victorian, completed in 2006 reflects the grandure of the 1890's. Tucked away in the pines and located just 2 miles from the southern entrance to Yosemite National Park, it's the perfect place to be. Tin Lizzie takes its name from the Model T Ford which the public lovingly dubbed “The Tin Lizzie”. While making your stay with us, you can share the thrill of driving an original Model T Ford with three peddles on the floor, and experience what it was like to live in an opulent home with servants to take care of your every need. New in 2011 is our beautiful 2 bedroom, 2 bath Vacation Home adjacent to the Inn - enjoy Yosemite in the comfort of your own home with all the charm of the Inn.

A wonderful alternative to the hotels in Yosemite!

5 on May 08, 2016

I'll preface this review with the confession, my husband and I aren't natural B&B folks. Yet, we found this to be a wonderful place. We were going to stay at one of the many hotels in the Yosemite Park area, but they were full by the time we needed to book, so we reserved a room at Tin Lizzie, and I'm so happy we did. Our first night, we got in kind of late, so we ate dinner at the Tenaya lodge for our first evening in Yosemite, and it made us realize, that hotel might be great for some, but it wasn't the place for us. Tin Lizzie definitely was. The heart of a B&B is the people who are running it, and it was evident from our first encounter with Jeb and Carmen, we knew we felt very much at home. The Tin Lizzie has everything, a room in the main house (incredibly beautiful--the Honeymoon Suite), the room in the main house with a separate entrance---which is what we had---and the outbuilding, with I think...I could be wrong...two larger places that could accommodate families. Tin Lizzie is convenient to Yosemite National Park, the bed was super cozy, it was very quiet, very romantic. Carmen and Jeb make sure there are treats, water, etc., every night. Then, you'll wake up to a wonderful breakfast, Carmen is quite the chef! Jeb took us on a wild ride in the Model T, and he gave us great suggestions and directions for where we needed to be, and what to see within the park. There's something about this place that the minute you walk in, the first hellos from Carmen and Jeb, it's very warm and comfortable. It sounds corny, but it's very positive energy, so sweet, warm and welcoming. Stay here if you can, you won't regret it. https://www.tripadvisor.com/ShowUserReviews-g32385-d674860-r371209205-Tin_Lizzie_Inn-Fish_Camp_California.html#

Our stay with Sheron & David was delightful. We'd never consider any other spot when we return to the area!

A beautiful B&B near Yosemite

We stopped for 2 days and wished it was more. Beautiful house and David/Sheran can't do enough to please you. You can't fail to be impressed along with a Free ride in a 1915 Model T Ford. Yosemite is 11/10 and the Lizzie is 12/10 Spencer, Debs and Summer Essex UK

My wife and I had an amazing stay at Tin Lizzie early July on our California trip. The cosiness and details of our little two floor annexus amazed us, but what was truly amazing, was the friendliness and treatment by the lovely owners Sheran and David. You feel like at home and treated with all the care only a family owned B&B can offer: Recommendations, restaurant and leisure time bookings etc. etc. And not to be forgotten the home made first class breakfast in the morning on the sunny terrace and the lovely rides with the 1925 Tin Lizzie. Thanks for the absolute highlight of our trip to Sheran and David, we are so glad that we didn´t book an accomodation within the park!

perfect spot for a romantic getaway!

My wife and I were honetymooning in California and wanted spots that were exclusive, private and charming. What a homer un we hit with this place! I dare say that there is nothing like this anywhere around Yosemite. We had our own duplex cottage located just outside the main house. The place was immaculate with old world charm . Our hosts, David and Sheran could not have been more gracious or acommodating, and the breakfasts were absolutely scrumptious! Overall ir was a thouroughly enjoyable five star experience!

Wonderful place to stay near Yosemite

Loved this place! We stayed in the carriage house and it was just as lovely as it appears on the website. Only 2 miles from Yosemite entrance near Wawona. About an hour drive to Yosemite Village.
