A Pleasant couple

4.6 on November 01, 2017

The couple that run this B and B are very pleasant and helpful. We were made to feel very welcome and comfortable.

A weekend to remember!

5 on April 18, 2017

David and Sheran pay attention to every detail, and they love what they do. Those things made our stay restful, peaceful, and the perfect way to experience the Yosemite area. We hope to visit again some day!

A hidden gem!

5 on April 17, 2017

We really loved staying at Tin Lizzie. The house is really beautiful and the room was very comfrotable. Most importantly, David and Sheran are wonderul hosts, the breakfast was always fantastic and their attention to details is remarkable.

Lovely, even in winter

4.6 on January 06, 2017

Everything about this place is wonderful. Rooms are beautiful, amenities are modern, hosts are personable, respectful, wonderful, and helpful, and site is the closest you can get to the entrance to the park without actually staying inside its gates. My husband and I enjoyed its unique and warm old-world charm, which is nearly impossible to find in today's commercial venues. I would go back in a heartbeat!

Great place to stay when visiting Yosemite

4.4 on August 16, 2016

We had a great stay at Lizzie Inn. The property is really a top one, and the service is fabulous. It was the best place we stayed during our California tour. Congrats! Lizzie Inn does not have a dinning option on site, but very close there is Tennaya Lodge where there two restaurants available, where someone can have an acceptable dinner.

Our stay at the Tin Lizzie was really wonderful. Jeb and Carmen are excellent hosts.They were welcoming and beyond accommodating of our requests. They made a special stay a spectacular one with the warmth of their presence, the great food and special touches in giving us a great itinerary in the park and a fun fun time just hanging out with them. JUST go. you will not be disappointed. PS they are open for the winter.. WHICH IS THE BEST TIME TO BE IN YOSEMITE!!!

Hospitality Abounds

5 on July 28, 2016

Carmen and Jeb were wonderful hosts. From the moment we arrived we were welcomed and every comfort was ours for the asking. Breakfast was really yummy. I loved the blueberry pancakes! Jeb did a super job of giving us ideas for a Yosemite itinerary. He set us up with hikes and points of interest that were perfect for our abilities and curiosity. The rooms and common areas were comfortable and clean. Fresh flowners, Fresh coffee and fresh smiles were in abundance. We had an extra special stay. We are thinking about going back this winter to experience the Yosemite Valley in its winter glory. Just go. You will be happy you did.

Birthday trip to Yosemite

5 on July 26, 2016

Carmen and Jeb (hosting for the owners) were perfect in every way. They gave us a ride across the street to dinner at the nearby resort/lodge two nights in a row. Jeb gave us a detailed itinerary of what to do, where to park, where to stop, etc., for our two days in Yosemite. Carmen offered to cook whatever we wanted for breakfast and we had our choice of serving times. They keep everyone private at this B and B (which is really nice, since many visitors to Yosemite don't even speak the same language). Every day our room was cleaned and the bed was made. After staying at several B and B's in Texas, this was a first for us! Overall, the room was huge and comfortable--we stayed in the suite. We had a private balcony as well with a nice view. Everything about the stay was first class and we were waited on hand and foot--literally, our every need was met. Highly recommended! You'll love the house and if you get Carmen and Jeb as your hosts, you can't ask for anything more!

Fantastic place!

4.8 on July 21, 2016

This is a special place being made even more special by Jeb and Carmen who made this a great experience for my wife, our two kids and myself,

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#

No place else we'd stay for Yosemite!

5 on May 04, 2016

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

5 on July 21, 2015

We were VERY pleased with the Tin Izzie. They were very accommodated and helpful. We had a great stay and recommend it for anyone visiting the area.

Beautiful stay

superb people and stunning place

4.6 on August 29, 2014

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


5 on August 26, 2014

the suite was stunning. Lovely breakfast on the balcony. Very rested and felt very pampered.

Very pleasant stay - amazing hosts

4.8 on August 12, 2014

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!

5 on August 11, 2014

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

5 on July 28, 2014

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.

Tin Lizzie Carriage House

4.8 on May 19, 2014

Excellent private home; 2 bedrooms (king beds) each with modern private baths, beautiful kitchen, and spacious living area; everything was immaculate and in great working order; wonderful accommodations for 2 couples or a family group; very close to Yosemite entrance and other area attractions.

A fantastic place in beautiful Yosemite

5 on September 17, 2013

Sheran and David has created the perfect B&B, the rooms are beautifully decorated with great attention to details. They provided excellent breakfast, good conversations and useful tips for hiking in Yosemite. A ride in a model T Ford was great bonus. Thanks a lot for the accommodation!

Wonderful hosts at a wonderful house

5 on September 15, 2013

David and Sheran make your stay at Tin Lizzie one to remember. From the moment you arrive they make you feel at home and cannot do enough for you. It is ideally situated just a few miles from the entrance of Yosemite park. Every day Sheran will put goodies for you in your room. David will take you on a journey around fish camp in one of his model t ford cars. We would definitely recommend Tin Lizzie and hope to return ourselves one day.

Carriage House

4.6 on August 26, 2013

We were looking for a place to stay near Yosemite & stumbled upon this place. We rented the Carriage House & it was PERFECT!!!! We have 2 boys so they got their own room complete with their very own bathroom & TV! They were in heaven. The house is BEAUTIFUL!!!! Very nicely decorated & had high-end upgrades such as granite counters, heated bathroom floors & jacuzzi bath tubs. David & Sheran were wonderful hosts. They greeted us when we arrived & had candles burning in the house & chocolate covered strawberries on the kitchen counter. They were VERY knowledgable about Yosemite & were more than happy to offer their advice. The ride in the Model T was a great end to an already perfect vacation. He even let my boys drive & they are only 8 & 10. I would highly recommend this place to anyone looking for a place to stay near Yosemite.

Almost felt like home

5 on August 09, 2013

We loved our stay at the Tin Lizzie Inn! Not only did Sheran and David give us useful advice to us "Yosemite-first-timers", but our snug two story rooms give us the impression that we were home, which was a welcomed change on our honeymoon trip through California. The breakfast was excellent, the tour in the Model-T unique and David and Sheran were adorable. We can definately recommend it!

Review of Tin Lizzie Inn at Yosemite

4.8 on August 04, 2013

Stayed at Tin Lizzie in July. Wonderful hosts! Beautiful facilty close to Yosemite. Would certainly stay there again

Wonderful Getaway at the Tin Lizzie

4.8 on July 25, 2013

We spent 2 nights in the Tin Lizzie Suite and were delighted with the room, the wonderful treats left for us, and the fabulous breakfasts served on our private balcony! We had a wonderful day in Yosemite driving one of David's Model A Fords (1929) and have some beautiful pictures of us in the car with Mother Nature's beauty as the backdrop! Highly recommend!

Best Bed and Breakfast!

5 on July 22, 2013

We have stayed in B&Bs in several areas of the country, but this was the best of all. Sheron and David have created a lovely retreat within minutes of the Yosemite park entrance. We stayed in the second floor suite with private balcony. Every detail from the design of the suite to the superb breakfasts demonstrates the exemplary hospitality of our hosts. This is a "must" for all travelers to the Yosemite area.

July Vacation

5 on July 17, 2013

I just want to say that our stay at the Tin Lizzie was wonderful! I have never been to the Yosemite area before so I didn't know much about the area. The Woodworth's had an extensive knowledge of the area and helped us out a lot. Also they were such gracious hosts and we spent a good amount of time just conversing over many topics. The room was a very nice, two story room. There was no air conditioning but room stayed very cool with fans. It is very close to the South Entrance so it was very convenient to enter Yosemite. A scrumptious breakfast was served every morning and there are some good restaurants very close for lunch and dinner. This is an outstanding B&B and anyone who stays here will love it!

Wonderful experience; gracious hosts, excellent accommodations; loved it!!!!well worth the

5 on July 09, 2013

Delicious breakfast every morning. Pristine condition of property and accommodations. Fun ride in the Model A through the mountains by the host. Recommend it highly. Jan

A delightful place to stay

4.4 on June 27, 2013

My family of 6 thoroughly enjoyed our stay in The Tin Lizzie Inn Carriage House. The accomodation is impeccable and the surroundings beautiful. A lovely place to spend a few days!

Amazing B&B; Great Location for Yosemite

4.8 on June 09, 2013

We had such a lovely couple of days at the Tin Lizzie, celebrating our anniversary and using the inn as our base for hiking in Yosemite. Sheran and David are amazing hosts, able to accommodate all requests. They clearly have thought through the details of the rooms very carefully - a perfect blend of Victorian grace with modern comfort. We were sorry that our vacation came to an end. We highly recommend a stay at the Tin Lizzie Inn.

Top stop

4.6 on June 02, 2013

This immaculate inn is run with every care and consideration by Sheran and David who are justifiably proud of the highest standards of comfort and food that they provide. Just 2 miles from the southern entrance to Yosemite, it is in a great location. Add to this David's passion for his Model T Ford and you have an added bonus during your stay. Relatively expensive but for a short stay it's worth it. We loved the two floor cottage style accommodation, the varied breakfasts and our hosts willingness to provide best advice whenever sought.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you, it was a pleasure getting to know you and serving you. David & Sheran

5 on May 28, 2013

The only thing we didn't like about Tin Lizzie was leaving. Sheran and David are a match made in heaven and they make your stay heavenly. Their victorian B&B is charming and spotless clean. Not only were the breakfasts outstanding but Sheran worked so hard to accommodate my eating preferences. Sheran and David have wonderful stories to tell and great advice about seeing Yosemite. Taking a ride in one of David's Model T's was the cherry on the sundae. One suggestion-go to Tenaya Lodge for dinner. It is right down the street in walking distance and there are plenty of options for delicious food at reasonable pictures. Tin Lizzie was one of our all time favorite stays!

Innkeeper Response
How delightful to hear your comments, I think we want to meet these people. Hope to see you again.

- David & Sheran (innkeeper)

Fantastic Experience

5 on May 06, 2013

We had a fantastic experience at the Tin Lizzie Inn. Sheron and Dave were the quintessential host and hostess. We stayed in the upstairs room, which was actually the entire second floor with a private balcony. The home has a wonderful Victorian charm and is loaded with amazing antiques. This is not your usual 'old victorian' though, it is brand new construction with totally modern appliances, heated flooring and fabulous bathrooms! The rooms are bright and sunny, the breakfasts were delicious, and the ride in the Model T was the icing on the cake. We highly recommend this Inn and we are hoping to return in the future.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you, I am glas your enjoyed your suite and stay with us, hope to see you again soon.

Great August Escape to Tin Lizzie Inn

5 on August 24, 2012

Excellent accomodations in the carriage house for a family of four. Very quiet, private and peaceful. Wonderful and personable people who really care about you and your stay. They are very eager to ensure you thoroughly enjoy your stay with them and provide excellent recommendations of things to do. The located is great, right across the street from the Tenaya and is about 3 miles from the Yosemite southern entrance. I am glad we did not stay in the park as it was too crowded.

Great place to start a vacation

5 on August 15, 2012

My wife and I chose Tin Lizzie for its convenience. After spending two nights, we would seek it out for a vacation in its own right. The room and bath were wonderful; the food,excellent; the converstaions, interesting and entertaining. Sheran and David were wonderful hosts. Mark and Linda

Fantastic B&B at Yosemite

5 on August 04, 2012

The Tin Lizzie is a great bed and breakfast! Sheran and David are very nice hosts, you can tell how much they care about making each guest's stay special. The rooms are very clean and nicely decorated in a Victorian style. The breakfasts were the best food we had on our entire trip. The location can't be beat, just 3 miles from the entrance to Yosemite.

Our Stay at Tin Lizzie Inn

5 on August 01, 2012

My wife and our adult son and daughter stayed at Tin Lizzie's Carraige House. It was the perfect size for our family of four. The home was spotless, had everything we needed and Sheran and David were great hosts. We will return again and will reccommend them to anyone that we know that will be visiting Yosemite.


4.2 on July 30, 2012

We stayed in the 2 bedroom house which is located next to the B&B. It was brand new with generous accomodation, king sized beds, large kitchen and laundry facilities. The owners made us very welcome. David took us out in his cars which was a highlight of our stay. Fish camp is 30 miles from Yosemite valley but close to Bass Lake which our children preferred. Our houe was self catering but Sheren gave us some provisions on our arrival and there was a local store close by. We had a great time and would recommend it without hesitation.

Perfect Bed and Breakfast Getaway

5 on July 25, 2012

Our stay at Tin Lizzie was absolutely perfect! We couldn't have asked for anything more. The suite is large and beautiful and every detail is attended to, even ones you would never think of. The owners, Sheran and David, are the most gracious of hosts and obviously take much love and pride in their beautiful bed and breakfast. Our breakfasts and afternoon treats were delicious. Breakfast was three delicious courses each day and served in a beautiful setting with such elegance! Again, I can't say enough good things. We loved our time here. We rented a Model A for the day and driving through Yosemite in such style is something neither of us will ever forget. We will definitely recommend Tin Lizzie to our friends, and can't wait to return ourselves! Ron and Christie Camin

Truly Outstanding!

5 on July 02, 2012

We stayed at the Tin Lizzie Inn for about a week and we had a wonderful time there. We cannot imagine of a better place to stay while visiting Yosemite: the breakfast was amazing, the Inn is very close to the park entrance, driving the Model T was a lot of fun and most of all, David and Sheran will spare no effort to make you feel great. Thanks very much Sheran and David. You are amazing!

Cute and Cozy Near Yosemite

4.8 on June 12, 2012

The Tin Lizzie is a small b&b two miles from the south entrance to Yosemite in a quiet residential neighborhood. We stayed in the two story cottage that was next to the house but had a separate outside entrance. The house, though built in the last 10 years is full of Victorian antiques, and period stained glass windows and lighting fixtures. The place is immaculately clean, the breakfasts and evening treats are nice and very filling and David and Sheran are gracious hosts. Sheran made lunch reservations for us at the Awanhee, and David took us for a ride around he area in his model T as well as let us drive a Model A one afternoon. This is a great place for couples.

Tin Lizzie

4.6 on May 31, 2012

Great place to stay, the friendliest of people. Model T rides are great fun.

Beautiful Place/Perfect Little Hide Away

4.8 on May 24, 2012

My new wife and I decided to spend our honeymoon in Yosemite National Park and found the cozy and comfortable Tin Lizzie Inn. I must say that our stay was nothing short of spectacular. David and Sheran, the Innkeeper, are truly wonderful. They are kind, warm and very inviting and friendly folks. The place is truly beautiful and the stay was perfect. Since we had just gotten married, Sheran welcomed us with flowers adorning our room. My wife just LOVED this. Sheran event preserved my wife's wedding bouquet. In short, everything about our stay was truly phenomenal and memorable!!!!!

Great bed and breakfast

4.4 on October 26, 2011

We enjoyed our stay very much in this brand new house which was extremely well decorated and close to yosemite park. The owners were really nice. We highly recommend it.

Stay at teh Tin Lizzie Inn

5 on October 17, 2011

The Inn is every bit as quaint as it appears; has lovely rooms filled with antiques. David and Sheran are exceptional hosts who made our stay wonderful. The ride in the Model T was a highlight of the stay for me.

Fantastic stay

5 on September 27, 2011

We stayed at the Tin Lizzie recently for 2 nights we enjoyed it immensely. The room, food and company exceeded our expectations and we would not hesitate to recommend it to our friends and family.

Tin Lizzie a perfect ten!

5 on September 21, 2011

We stayed three nights at the Tin Lizzie in early September and were wowed by the friendliness of David and Sheran, the inn's lovely antique furnishings, and its cleanliness. David will even drive you to local (Fish Camp) restaurants for dinner in his Model A or Model T Fords! We felt pampered by our hosts and would have loved to stay longer at this first-class B&B. It sets a new standard that we will have to measure other inns by! J & J

Simply Perfect

5 on September 13, 2011

Having just returned from 4 nights at The Tin Lizzie, I can't speak highly enough of the Inn, the delightful breakfasts, location and above all the unbeatable level of hospitality provided by both David and Sheran. They really set an unbeatable standard and should be proud of what they've achieved with this gorgeous property. We stayed in the Suite and it exceeded our expectations. After staying away frequently on business, it was refreshing to stay in 5 star surroundings with the feel of being 'at home'. I hope we'll be back and recommend this Inn to anyone who wants pampering in a beautiful part of the world. Mr and Mrs Canning, UK

Wonderful Yosemite Stay

5 on September 10, 2011

We stayed at the Tin Lizzie during August 2011 and David and Sheran the hosts made one of the most enjoyable stays of our trip. This unique guest house is ideally situated for Yosemite and surrounding areas. The house itself was charming as were the hosts who also served a wonderful and varied breakfast each morning, especially given that I have gluten intolerance which did not appear to phase Sheran creating the most enjoyable food.W&J England

Best B&B Ever!

5 on September 04, 2011

David and Sharon have certainly mastered the art of hospitality. From arrival to departure, they could not have been more attentive, caring and hospitable. Both, my wife and I work in the hotel industry and stay at hotels/resorts, etc. quite a lot for work or for pleasure so our expectations might be higher than that of others. David and Sharon are such wonderful host and provided an unparalleled experience. All the little details in the room, the decor, the treats in the evening, a very delicious breakfast out on our private balcony, the drive in one of David's Ford's made for an unforgettable experience. Our stay cannot be compared to anything we've ever experienced. We cannot wait to go back!

A few days in Yosemite

4.6 on September 03, 2011

The quality of the accomodation was outstanding in all respects. David & Sheeran could not do enough to make our stay comfortable and enjoyable. They gave us good information on the local attractions and sites, the trips in the Model T & Model A cars were fantastic and the breakfast each morning was something to look forward to. Highly recommended.

TinLizzie, What a Treasure

5 on August 23, 2011

The Inn is beautiful, David and Sharon make you feel like family seeing to all of your needs, the location is amazing outside of Yosemite and the model T and Model A cars are so fun to drive.

Tin Lizzy is a must if you want an extraordinary experience!

4.8 on August 19, 2011

We rented the CArriage HOuse which is with a Gourmet Kitchen. The place is just beautiful and the whole inn is so beautifully decorated in Victorian style that witnesses the passion and energy that both, Dave and Sharan (owners) put into their Inn. Our hosts were the extra on top of everything, very friendly and taking care of us very well, especially of the kids. And of course the tour in the T-Model was a fabulous experience. This was definetely one of the best experiences we made when traveling around in the US

Beautiful home and Great Hosts!!

4.2 on August 10, 2011

Had a great weekend at the Tin Lizzie Inn. Nice to be outside Yosemite Valley but close enough to explore when you want. David and Sheron are great hosts and their home is beautiful. Breakfasts were delicious and the little unexpected treats of lucious desserts were a very special touch. Loved the ride in the Model T-highlight of our trip!

Such an experience

4.6 on August 08, 2011

Every detail was of the highest standard. Hospitality second to none. We were truly pampered.


5 on August 07, 2011

As I expected the accomodations were wonderful and the close proximity to Yosemite was very convenient. But what sets the Tin Lizzie Inn apart from other lodgings are the owners, David and Sheran Woodworth. They take a personal interest in all of their guests and do whatever they can to make sure your vacation is truly memorable. Whether you are or not, you will be treated like family. I would recommend the Tin Lizzie Inn to anyone who wants a vacation that they will remember for the rest of their lives. It has certainly been true for us.

Family Vacation in Yosemite!!

5 on July 31, 2011

Thank you very much Sheran and David for a wonderful time in Yosemite!!! Your hospitality is outstanding. You maintain your property extremely well, you help plan our outings to the park. We appreciated you going the extra mile. The house is amazing, it has everything you would want and more. Your attention to the details made our trip a true vacation, the late night smores, the car ride and especially the warm bathroom floors. The memory of the ride in the MODEL "T" car will last forever.

Carriage House is Amazing!

5 on July 30, 2011

They just opened up a new addition to their Inn and it's fabulous! A 2 bedroom/2 full bath home. Our family just stayed there and had such a nice, cozy, time. We were able to cook in the full kitchen and BBQ downstairs. Just perfect for a family or two couples. Everything is upgraded and beautifully decorated. I will not stay anywhere else again! We got a ride in their Model T Ford too. So fun! David and Sheran are so hospitable and made our trip extra special. Thanks so much!

Fantastic Stay at the Tin Lizzie

4.6 on July 26, 2011

David and Sheran are kind, wonderful inn keepers who will attend to your every need. While we were very busy hiking and seeing the sights of Yosemite, they were always available to assist us and make out stay memorale. I would highly suggest this inn.

A Cherished Memory

5 on July 10, 2011

Our stay at the Tin Lizzie Inn Bed and Breakfast was wonderful, over and above any of our expectations. The host and hostess, David and Sheran are truly unbelievable genuine people treating you more like old friends instead of guests they have just met. The accomodations are spotless, detailed and beautiful, the food is excellent and the service is Royal. One of the highlights of our stay was the rental of a Tin Lizzie Ford touring car for our trip through Yosemite. An adventure of the past and the Best way to see the sights as there are no obstructions to block your view. It was surprisingly easy to drive and so much fun. They are well maintained and David makes sure you understand all aspects of the car before you venture out. We highly Recommend this Unique and Exciting experience. You will walk away with a greater sense of what your ancestors drove and a deeper appreciaton for Henry Ford. Our stay was Delightful, Over the Top. A Sheer Pleasure to Repeat and Enjoy over and over again. Julie, Dayna and Dawn...Castro Valley, Ca.

Tin Lizzie

4.6 on July 04, 2011

The Inn is just two miles outside the South entrance to Yosemite. From there, you can drive through the park, or take advantage of bus/tram service to see the sights (spectacular!). We stayed in the "cottage". This room has its own private entrance, a sitting room, and a mastersuite with private bath. Satellite TV and wireless access made it possible to get a little work done, too. Sheran and David are wonderful, personable hosts. They are attentive to detail, and happy to provide any assistance you'll need. Sheran makes a killer breakfast, and left afternoon snacks in our room every day. David took us on a tour in one of his Model T's, showed us the sights, and told some great stories. The morning we left, we found him outside cleaning our windshield! We really enjoyed our stay....I'm sure you will too!

An Awesome Stay with Awesome Hosts

5 on June 20, 2011

We loved our stay at Tin Lizzie. It has a great location ... just outside the park and is closed to a number of good eats. We arrived quite late on our first night but David and Sheran were still up and made us feel welcome. They both made sure that we had everything we needed before we went to bed. The room we stayed in was amazing. The bed was so comfortable and I think we both fell asleep the moment our heads hit the pillow. There was a wide selection of DVDs that we could watch, the room was fully stocked with soda and water and each day Sheran had placed a delicious snacky treat in our rooms that we devoured as soon as we returned from our trip to Yosemite. We loved the food that was served for breakfast and the assistance both Dave and Sheran gave us in planning in our visit to Yosemite. We will definitely be staying at the Tin Lizzie again when we return to Yosemite. We will be recommending this place to all of our friends. 10 out 10 ... full marks ... 5 stars etc etc Dave and Liz Guild Sydney Australia

A Jewel

5 on June 18, 2011

My husband and I just spent three nights at the Tin Lizzie. Sheron and David, the owners are the most wonderful hosts imaginable. The cottage was stunning...fireplace...cushy bathrobes....a dessert treat each night when we returned to our room. Breakfasts were elegant and delicious. (I asked for and received one of the recipes). The best thing..we were there during the NBA finals and were going out to dinner one night when the game was on We watched the first half and then had to leave. Sheron offered to tape the second half in her living room and told us to come in to watch when we returned. It was one of the most exciting games ever and we would have missed it. I can't say enough about the Tin Lizzie. Myra and Kenny

wonderfull time!

4.4 on June 04, 2011

This was our second stay at the Tin Lizzie Inn, we had a great time and we will definitely go back again.

Tin Lizzie

5 on June 01, 2011

The Tin Lizzie exceeded our expectations on every level. David and Sheran are the most entertaining and dedicated hosts we have ever met. Every detail was delivered to perfection and the Model T ride made the Tin Lizzie a most memorable and magnificent destination discovery!

Memories Made at the Tin Lizzie Inn

5 on January 30, 2011

Our stay at the Tin Lizzie Inn was a fantastic memorable experience. The owners, David and Sheran, are truly what make this bed and breakfast exceptional. Their hospitality and charm made you feel like you were visiting old friends who are truly glad that you have come to visit. When we pulled up to the Inn David met us at the car to take our luggage before we even had time to open the car doors. The Inn is incredible with its antique furnishings, unique collections, and modern luxuries. Each morning began with a delicious full gourmet breakfast with extremely attentive service. What truly made this an experience we will never forget is that we toured Yosemite in one of David’s restored antique cars. The 1931 Model A Ford Cabriolet is similar to my Dad’s first car. For Dad to have an opportunity to drive a car similar to the one he had at 16 was a thrill we were privileged to share and so much fun. The views from the convertible were fantastic. David accompanied us in a 1929 Model A Roadster showing us the highlights of Yosemite Valley, providing us with history and details about our locations, showing us where to stop for the most magnificent views, and taking pictures of us that created memories that will last a lifetime. To make the experience complete Sheran baked cookies and served cold lemonade when we returned. We were truly sorry to have to leave our new friends and their fantastic Tin Lizzie Inn.

Setting the Standard for Hospitality

5 on August 28, 2010

We visited the Tin Lizzie Inn this summer and found it to be the best B&B we have ever visited. Every element of our stay was wonderful and expressed such tremendous hospitality. We were pampered from start to finish, from a ride in their Model T car to the Tenaya Inn for dinner the first evening we arrived to incredible breakfasts and treats. We stayed in the cottage which was fabulously decorated yet still cozy and inviting. But as wonderful as the inn is, it is the innkeepers that made our stay extra special. David and Sheran were so warm and thoughtful – thanks to them, we felt welcomed like old family friends even though this was the first time we had ever met them. They are very interesting people – we found ourselves lingering over breakfast, enjoying talking with them. They express so much care in everything they do. We plan to recommend this inn to our friends.

Perfect Honeymoon!

I took my wife up to the Tin Lizzie the weekend after our wedding and was blown away. The pictures and reviews on here do not do it justice! The host and hostess were extremely friendly and greeted us at the door as promised! The model T ride as great and the they recommended and reserved great local food as well. With it being so close to Yosemite we were able to go there on Saturday and not have it take the whole day to get there! Highly recommended!

It does not get more amazing then this!

This is the best bed & breakfast I have been to in all of CA. The owners are the niceset people and make you feel so at home. The food is superb and the rooms have so much elegant detail. Driving a Model A or Model T car through Yosemite is also a one-of-a-kind experience!

First Class B&B

Everything was class A. Will recommend to others and will stay again.

The perfect getaway

This place is just the best. We will be going back the next time we want a quiet luxurious getaway. Hospitality PLUS. Sheran and David make you feel like old friends while they pamper you in their lovely home. I can't recommend this place enough.

An awesome memory!

It was such a lovely place. The hosts were superb! The whole experience was just a joy! We want to go back, and the Model T ride was fun.

most excellent

Business Trip

4.8 on June 24, 2009

I happened to stumble upon this place when I had to make a business trip to Yosemite. Arrived a bit after 7pm and the couple greeted me at my car. Very welcoming; felt like I was staying at a family friends house for the night. I stayed in the cottage and the details were so delightful. Fireplace, tv, sodas and snacks were displayed. I had a private entrance and could leave without intrusion to the main house. The bedding was very comfortable and the back patio was so peaceful. Wish I could have stayed longer! Breakfast was very nice and the stories told -wonderful. I will be back for my anniversay and will reccommend this b&b to everyone I know when visiting Yosemite. Also, super convenient - across the street from the Tenya Lodge (restaurants, shopping and spa).

lavish luxury

The Tin Lizzy Inn surpassed our greatest expectations. Sharon and David's hospitality are unmatched. Our room was spacious, well appointed, and clean. I have very high standards but felt very comfortable. highly recommend this inn!

Over the Top Hospitality

4.0 on June 13, 2009

My husband and I enjoyed 2 days of pampering, and enjoyment driving around Yosemite in a Model A. The room accommedations were beautifully designed, very spacious, and spotlessly clean. The breakfast menu was very delicious and it held us until dinner time with no need for lunch. The hospitality was so entertaining, that we did not want to stay in our rooms. I have been telling everyone about our stay here. We will definitely go back. S & K, from Valencia CA

Joyful experience

My husband and I stayed at The Tin Lizzie to celebrate his 40th B-day. He absolutely loved driving to Yosemite in a 1927 Model- A. What a great way to see the sights. The Inn was beautiful to every last detail. The Inn keepers were so gracious- making sure we were completely satisfied. The 3-course breakfast was excellent. Overall an amazing experience.

The model for a great B and B!

My wife and I were guests at the Tin Lizzie Inn in mid-May, staying two nights in the Tin Lizzie Suite. This suite is a large accommodation filling nearly the second floor of the inn. It is lavishly furnished with Victorian antiques and rivals the suites of any fine hotel. The gourmet breakfast is outstanding! The inn is only two years old and is meticulously maintained. Two other things make the inn special, however. First, you can rent either a vintage Model A or T Ford. We chose to take the complementary ride around Fish Camp with the innkeepers, David and Sheran Woodworth. Our Model A drove and rode remarkably well. It is amazing these vintage Fords are still on the road after 80-90 years and a real testament to their design and durability. The most special aspect to the inn is the owners. David and Sheran are not only great hosts, but are also interesting (with many experiences to share) and warm as well. You'll leave feeling you have made two new friends. We have stayed in many hotels, inns, and B and B's around the world and can recommend the Tin Lizzie Inn without hesitation. If you visit Yosemite, a stay at the Tin Lizzie will be a highlight of your visit! It rates a "5 out of 5".

A charming place to stay

5 on May 04, 2009

This place is truly a destination! You will feel totally pampered and cared for as if you were with family or good friends. Food is wonderful, hosts delightful and helpful in every way and the setting is lovely. Riding around in a Model T is great fun!

Luxurious and warm

The newly build Tin Lizzie Inn is an incredibly finely detailed Victorian home nestled among the pines. We say home rather than B&B because of you feel you are guests of friends rather than staying in an Inn. Our large beautiful suite was furnished with antiques, gorgeous and comfortable king size bed, big beautiful bathroom, with a shower made for two with all the shower heads imaginable and a unique massaging bathtub. Delicious breakfasts and daily treats combined with chirping birds in the morning, an early morning sighting of a deer and her fawn nibbling on Sheran's flowers (tolerated as a natural part of living in a rural setting) and even an evening campfire with roasted marshmallows makes The Tin Lizzie a easy recommendation for anyone looking for comfort, elegance and specially luxury. David's antique collections goes well beyond his Model Ts and As and his knowledge and range of interests make him and Sheran unique among the many Innkeepers we have met with over the years. A richly deserved Five Star recommendation.

Great place to unwind

5 on June 30, 2007

We were pleasantly surprised at how wonderful our stay was. The room was amazing! The bathroom had heated floors, and we got special treats every night. The owners were very knowledgable about the surrounding area. We were able to have a wonderful vacation due to their organization, expertise on Yosemite, and hospitality! The Model Ts are just a huge added plus! We will stay here again!!!

Heaven on Earth

5 on June 28, 2007

From the moment we arrived at the Tin Lizzie we were treated like royalty. The accomodations are elegant and luxurious. The owners make you feel like family and strive to meet your every need. We had a wonderful time driving the original Ford Model Ts seeing the beauty of Yosemite Valley up close and personal. You can't go wrong booking your next getaway with with the Woodworths. It will be an unforgetable experience. Christian Shannon - Guest Spring 2007
