We had a wonderful time at is enchanting B&B. Our hosts and the owners, Sherin and David, were lovely and very accomodating. We have stayed in many B&B's but none as beautiful as this one. They thought of everything, even a fun ride in an old Model T Ford. The location was perfect and we had access to the park and a number of good restaurants. We only wish we had more time to stay at this enchanting home.

My wife and I stayed at the Tin Lizzie Inn for our Anniversary two days ago. We stayed in the 'Cottage' and it was likely the cutest place my wife and I have ever stayed (and we're world travelers so that's saying something). The layout of the cottage is so fun, the bottom story is a little sitting room with a small TV and a bunch of historical Yosemite books and it has a coffee maker and small table to sit at and read. The upstairs is really romantic, with a big curtain-framed bathtub open to the room and warm reading lights above the bed. The room is so cozy it basically demands that you lay there for hours reading books and napping.

My wife was also surprised that I slept in to 8:30 on the bed it was so comfortable. I usually struggle sleeping past 6am in most beds.

There are menus to all the local resturants in both the main house and in the cottage as well which are really helpful in deciding on where to go and what to eat. The hosts were also very helpful in giving us advice and directions. We ended up going to bass lake and gourging ourselves on home made burgers and tacos (high recommend Ducey's by the lake).

We got back from dinner and there were cookies waiting for us on the sitting-room table. This was a nice treat as we were craving a snack on the drive home and they perfectly fit the mood.

All in all a wonderful stay, would recommend to anyone desiring a quiet, romantic, and peaceful stay up in Yosemite.

Room Tip: The cottage is amazing. I'm sure the suite is too but don't be scared off if the suite is booked.

This was a beautiful looking house in a lovely quiet spot about an hour from the centre of Yosemite. David was an absolute gem, very interesting and full of knowledge with a real passion for his model T Ford which he gave us a wonderful drive in. Nothing was too much trouble for the couple at all and they were very helpful and welcoming.

However we most likely would not stay again as the room we had was small and very warm indeed with only a double bed. Because we couldn't bear the noise of the Aircon which was exceptionally loud and intrusive we didn't sleep well. The bath and shower are actually in the bedroom just curtained off which wasn't ideal. The breakfast we had on the first morning was awful – 3 courses of sweet stuff all topped off with canned squirty cream! On asking them if we could have something plainer such as cereal and eggs/toast the next morning they happily obliged but we did get another 'special' sweet offering with the ubiquitous squirty cream to start. The breakfast room was playing some awful 'funeral parlour' type music in the background which was just dire and you felt like you had to whisper in reverence!

All in all, we couldn't fault the hospitality but it's not really for us especially given the premium rates paid.

Based on the past reviews my expectations for this Inn were very high. We were not disappointed. The Inn is beautiful and our hosts couldn't have done any more to make our trip fantastic. The room we stayed in had every amenity I could think of and every morning we were treated to a delicious breakfast. Our hosts David and Sheron were charming. If you plan early you might be lucky enough to get a reservation.

Room Tip: The upstairs suite is huge with a private porch, a sitting area with fireplace and a luxurious bathroom.

From breakfast, the little cottage we stayed in, to tips and recommendations that they gave, our conversations with David on theology and biology, David's collections of old cars and Model T car rides -- it was a superb experience that we will reminisce fondly! My wife was so in love with the comfortable bed! BEcause it was our first anniversary, Sheran had a cake for us and had sweet treats for us almost every single evening =) The location was excellent, just 10-15 min drive from the entrance to Yosemite. Just follow David and Sheran's suggestions. We weren't hardcore hikers, so we were happy to be able to escape most crowds (it was Memorial Day weekend) and explore the area more thoroughly (e.g. Bass Lake, Wawona, Big Trees Lodge). Highly recommend also Yosemite Mountain Sugar Pine Railroad -- it was Sheran and David's idea and so glad we went! Sheran and David were the sweetest and most wonderful hosts!
