About Tom Lambert and Theresa Ho
After rock climbing in Yosemite in the 1980s and 1990s we came to Yosemite on three-month climbing trip in 2003 and never left. We live here, work here, play here and would love to share the park with you. We are avid hikers, climbers, skiers, wildflower enthusiasts and photographers. We have worked for the ski area, the cross-country ski center, the mountaineering school, volunteered at the visitor center (Theresa), and worked as ranger (Tom).
Tom Lambert and Theresa Ho purchased this Apartment in 2007
Why Tom Lambert and Theresa Ho chose Yosemite West
Yosemite National Park is one of the most beautiful adventure spots in the world. From the tallest waterfalls and granite cliffs in America to meadows of wildflowers and wildlife, there's no place else like it. Yosemite West, our neighborhood, is at a crossroads where in one direction on finds the incomparable Yosemite Valley, in another the sweeping vistas of Glacier Point and in the third the majestic giant sequoia trees of the Mariposa Grove. We love being so close to such amazing scenery. In the winter, we are only seven miles from downhill skiing at Badger Pass and cross-country skiing on Glacier Point Road, close enough to nip out for a short ski before work.
What makes this Apartment unique
We don't think there is any rental or hotel in Yosemite that offers guests the planning assistance and personal attention that we do. Yosemite is the size of Rhode Island and ranges from 2,000 feet to over 13,000 feet in elevation. Figuring out what to do can be daunting. Unless we're off traveling ourselves, we greet most of our guests and help plan their stay in the park. Many guests, especially those here during crowded periods, tell us our guidance was integral to the success of their trip. Whether we're here or not, we also offer our guests unparalleled trip planning help. If we won't be available during your stay, we are always happy to assist by phone and email and make sure that not only will you enjoy your evenings and mornings at our house, but you will have a plan of action to make the most of your visit to this huge park.

Wonderful place to stay!
This rental has everything. It is centrally located, amazingly clean, and offers a ton of amenities. The owners are absolutely the BEST. They offered help (Tom actually fixed my leaking radiator hose) and all sorts of great advice on the park. I came home and immediately booked my next stay with them. This is just simply a wonderful place to spend time while exploring Yosemite Park.
A fantastic place to stay in Yosemite!!
Tom and Theresa are fantastic hosts!! They are knowledgeable and easy to speak with for advice and suggestions. The house is INCREDIBLY clean and comfortable!! We can't praise it enough!
Amazing home away from home
We cannot say enough about the great stay we had Alpine Escape. What a great place to recover from a hike in Yosemite! The bed's are super comfortable, the place is immaculately clean, the neighborhood is completely quiet and the kitchen is stocked with everything you could need. Tom was so accommodating and friendly. Checking in was a breeze (even at 10:30pm). We will definitely stay here again when we return to Yosemite.
Nice clean home. Owner were very nice and a help in finding the right areas for us to explore.
Perfect for Yosemite
This was a perfect place for us. Plenty of room to stretch and amenities were helpful. Tom lives above rental and so we saw him several times. He was very helpful when we were deciding which trails would be good for us. I think I timed it as 7 minutes off the main road. It seemed pretty far from the valley the first trip, but quickly became an easy commute. S
Inside the park gates, and centrally located between three of the most popular park destinations, Yosemite Valley, Glacier Point and the Mariposa Grove of Giant Sequoias, our rental is the perfect basecamp for exploring the park.
Access hiking and running trails right from the neighborhood. Just ask for directions on some of our favorites! Plus, Badger Pass Ski Area, and all the skiing, snowshoeing and other snow play activities are only ~7 miles away in the winter.
