About Sherilee Nimon

The Nimon family welcomes to you to Yosemite's Nature's Inn. We look forward to helping make your stay extra special.

Sherilee Nimon purchased this lodge in 2012

Why Sherilee Nimon chose Ahwahnee

We hope you find it as breathtaking as we did when we first saw it with its contemporary rustic, hand-crafted, timber lodge. The building was built by hand by 2 brothers from the Oakhurst area in 1987. The lodge was built so well it looks only a few years old.

What makes this lodge unique

The property has a hot tub and swimming pool outside with great views of the property, mountains, and night sky. There is a terrace with lots of seating, outdoor gas fireplace, bocce ball court, horse shoe pit, and ping pong table.

The Inn is located just below the snow line, so access to snow and snow parks are an easy drive but you will most likely not have to worry about shoveling your way out of the driveway while you stay.
