Upon our arrival at the Tin Lizzie we were met with the warmest of receptions by our hosts Sheran and David. Although only early October, it was -1 degree Celsius and Yosemite was experiencing the first snowfall of the season; we were welcomed with coffee and warm cookies and immediately made to feel right at home.
We stayed in the cottage, a self contained annex to the main house which had a living area downstairs and a charming open plan bedroom (bed with an electric blanket) and bathroom (including shower) upstairs. Breakfast was in the main house and was a feast each morning setting us up for the day ahead. On our return every evening we were welcomed with different treats and dinner reservations at local eateries.
As we had left the remainder of our trip open ended Sheran and David were invaluable in helping advise on other places to visit in California, providing us with a suggested itinerary and onward accommodation recommendations/bookings. I know that Sheran and David would have no hesitation in helping others plan their trip so perhaps contacting them before making your final decisions on where to go is something you may wish to consider.
Having come from the anonymity of larger hotels it was an absolute delight to stay with Sheran and David who were the most attentive, interesting and helpful of hosts. I would thoroughly recommend staying with them at the Tin Lizzie!
