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).

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.
Please consider the following guidelines when booking this property:
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date. 50% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date.
Alpine Escape was a great place to stay!
We were very pleased with Alpine Escape. It had everything we needed and some. It was very clean and up to date.
Tom was very detailed in describing how to get there. He made the process very easy. He was also a great resource for getting around the park and recommendations for trails we should not miss.
My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed Alpine Escape and would definitely come back.
Great Spot and Amazing Hosts
Can’t say enough good things about the property, it’s amenities, and Tom / Theresa. Look no further for a Yosemite place! You’ve found the right one here... Can’t wait to come back! Would definitely stay here again.

Mid-May hiking vacation
An excellent base camp for a Yosemite vacation. Everything in the unit was new and clean, and there were labels and notes explaining how to operate things. The owners are very well organized and attentive, and a good source of information about current conditions in the park. I can't think of anything negative to say about our experience.
Stay here...you will be happy that you did!
This outstanding property was everything we hoped for and more! It was very clean and quiet. Location is excellent for visiting Yosemite and Mariposa Grove. Owners directions are very detailed and communication was easy and straighforward.
Have fun and relax.
Great escape to the alpine
Our first visit to Yosemite was made more enjoyable as a result of this attractive, comfortable, and welcoming place to lodge and use as home base. Our host was friendly and provided helpful advice both before we arrive and during our stay.
Perfect Yosemite Escape!
Had an excellent time at the Alpine Escape, Yosemite. Tom is very welcoming and the check-in instructions / recommendations were easy to follow. The home itself is very cozy and the fireplace and kitchen are especially wonderful. Also the washer & dryer were helpful after a couple of long hikes.
Absolutely loved our stay and would highly recommend to anyone looking to check out the beauty of Yosemite.
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.
