About Sheran Woodworth

Our love for Yosemite and the Victorian era prompted us to build our dream home and add our wonderful Carriage House. David, a lover of antiques and antique cars, will delight you with his many stories and enthusium for everything he does. He will even teach you how to drive an original Model T Ford, the car that changed the world.

Sheran Woodworth purchased this house in 2011

Why Sheran Woodworth chose Yosemite National Park

We love Yosemite and the victorian era. The only way we could live in one in this area was to build our own. The project started in 2003 and was completed in 2006. After turning away so many travelers, we expanded and built our wonderful Carriage House where families and children can stay . It's like living in a treehouse. Yosemite is one of our most beautiful national parks and a must see. We recommend a minimum of 3 days to a week to truly enjoy the park. Please call us, we love helping our guests plan their trip.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Very few things exceed our expectations...this place did!

We stayed in the Carriage house this past week with our two daughters (8&11yrs) and were so comfortable we wanted to move in! This place is worth the money to have all the comforts of home while enjoying the peace and quite of the sierras.

What do you get?

A)2 bedrooms both with cozy king beds and jacuzzi tubs :) One with TV, DVD, Satalite, & Tivo

B) Beautiful kitchen including all the dishes,pans, coffee maker, & supplies (just bring food)

C) cozy living room with fireplace, a flatscreen TV with Satalite and Tivo, games, and Free Wireless throughout the place.

D) A washer and dryer along with Ironing board and all the supplies

E) A BBQ to grill on, a patio, lawn for the kids to run, swings, and campfire to make smores.

F) and the very best part is David & Sheran who make you feel right at home and make your stay just wonderful!

I highly recommend this place to everyone. We had friends stay at the Tenaya Lodge and visted them. It was crowded, extremely over priced, loud, and poor snooty service....They wished they had stayed at the TIn Lizzie. And they were very jealous to know we drove around in a Model T Ford that was included in our stay. David and Sheran also help make special arrangements for our Autistic daughter when we needed things adjusted for her. What more could you ask for, right? Well David even taught my 8yr old how to drive the ModelT...she hasn't stopped talking about it! Thanks David & Sheran for a wonderful vacation! check out the great pics I took of the place!!!

Dream Palace: Best deal in Yosemite.

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at many resorts, and rented many vacation homes.

The Carriage house is a small palace. our girls did not want to go to the park...:)

No words can describe the intimate touch of the owners.

GREAT PLACE, so close to the south entry to the park. THANK you!

Terrific Find

  • 5 of 5

We loved this place and and all of its amenities. There were 4 of us and the bedrooms, bathrooms and living spaces were perfect for us. We received great restaurant recommendations from our hosts and the Model T ride and photographs were unbelievably fun. The location was really close to the lower entrance to the park. We highly recommend this property and the hosts.

The Perfect Gateway for a Yosemite Park Vacation

  • 5 of 5

The Tin Lizzie Carriage House was a beautiful and private vacation experience. The immaculate 2-bedroom/2 bathroom house has a large, modern, and well-equipped kitchen and a spacious gathering/living room that exceeded our expectations. It's located in a heavily wooded and quiet neighborhood only a short drive from the park entrance.

The owners were onsite and ready to greet us. They provided a variety of helpful information about the park and the surrounding locale. Their warmth and hospitality was greatly appreciated throughout our stay.

We would highly recommend this property to our friends and relatives.

Our main objective for this trip was to enjoy Yosemite Park with our family. Restaurants weren't a focus, as we enjoyed barbequing on the electric grill at the Tin Lizzie. Stopping for groceries at Vaughn's prior to arriving at the inn is an excellent idea, as noted by the owners. The icing on the cake was a ride in the owner's Model T car with pictures!

Fantastic house and equally gracious owners make this place extraordinary!

  • 5 of 5

This home was just perfect for our family trip to Yosemite. Pictures on the website, though beautiful, still can't do it justice. The house is beautiful and Sheran and David are the ultimate hostess and host. We were welcomed like old friends and treated like family. They offered their picnic basket and cooler for our packed lunches for the park. Sheran even brought over warm cookies our first night! The Tin Lizzie is perfectly appointed and everything is as clean and beautiful as you want a vacation place to be. Our family (3 young men plus us parents) was perfectly comfortable in this home with everything we needed, including some essential groceries and supplies. We made one trip to the nearby grocery store to stock up for preparing meals in the superb kitchen which was huge-- everyone could pitch in with meals. If you don't want to cook, an exclusive hotel across the street has four wonderful choices for dining out. A small hotel room in Yosemite would cost as much as this place. We had this gorgeous home, a yard with wildlife, the beautiful big pines and hammocks, a grill on the patio, a firepit for roasting marshmallows, and the icing on the cake was the Model T car driving lessons and tour! That was our 16-year old's highlight of the whole trip. The jacuzzi bathtubs and beds were heavenly after full days in Yosemite of climbing and hiking. WHEN we come back, we will stay at the Tin Lizzie again. The southern entrance into Yosemite is the best one due to the jaw-dropping, eye-popping view as you come out of the tunnel. Tin Lizzie is on that highway.

Spacious & Comfortable Accomodations, Gracious Hosts, Beautiful Automobiles

  • 5 of 5

Staying at David and Sheran Woodworth's Tin Lizzie Inn Carriage House was a pleasure in every way. The carriage house was enormous yet cozy. It had everything we needed for a long stay...full kitchen, dishes, laundry, etc. The beds were huge and extrememly comfortable.

Moreover, David and Sheran were more than happy to help with special requests. For instance, I failed to bring my camera charger, and David lent me his for the weekend. Sheran even lent us binoculors to use. Both David and Sheran had tons of great travel ideas, depending on your interests, how far you want to travel, what you want to see, etc.

The best part, however, was driving the Ford Model T and Model A. The cars are in original condition and well-maintained. I was a bit nervous about driving the antique cars, but David was extremely patient in teaching us how to operate the cars...very comfortable, low pressure instructions. After getting the hang of it, driving the Model T and A was an absolute pleasure. The cars are real head-turners, and onlookers couldn't help but smile (especially if you're wearing a derby)!

Thanks again, David and Sheran...looking forward to next time!
