Your Host, Elizabeth Shepard

Elizabeth Shepard may be new to innkeeping but your gracious host has extensive experience in making people feel at home, relaxed and welcome. After an extended career in commercial real estate finance in California, she moved to Ajijic to have a kinder and gentler lifestyle. She has no regrets!

As an amateur connoisseur of wines in the Sonoma County wine region, Elizabeth knew her retirement would revolve around the opportunity to learn about Mexican wines. During many visits to Mexico she was intrigued by the wine varieties and long history of Mexican wine. With the guidance of a Mexican sommelier, Elizabeth’s goal to open a wine bar was realized. Her passion for the wine industry, has also led to the curation of guest tours to various wine regions of Mexico.

You can find Elizabeth warmly greeting guests with a smile or attentively placing a batch of cookies in the Hospitality Room. Her genuine enthusiasm for hospitality and Mexican culture is evident to all she welcomes.

“Elizabeth, the Innkeeper, consistently went above and beyond by always anticipating our needs, recommending activities and making arrangements for us. Her attention to details from the linens to the artwork is evidenced everywhere. I think Elizabeth is happiest when her guests are sharing her hospitality! Chef Alex provided fresh-squeezed orange juice, fresh fruit and hot breakfasts every morning as well as tasty afternoon snacks. The entire Inn has beautiful common areas, a solar heated swimming pool and two miradors with extensive views of the mountains and the village. Casa del Sol Inn is in the centre of the village with easy walking distance to the plaza, good restaurants, shopping and the malecon. We hope to come back again next year.” Marilyn & Duke, Alberta, Canada
