Yosemite National Park, California
Need a relaxing refuge to retreat to after a day of adventuring among the natural wonders of Yosemite National Park? Our warm and inviting home is located inside the park gates equidistant from the celebrated features of Yosemite: the namesake Yosemite Valley, Glacier Point, the Mariposa Grove of giant sequoias and 800 miles of hiking trails.

Alpine Escape is perfectly located for all activities within Yosemite National Park. The apartment is very well fitted out, clean and has everything needed for an enjoyable and hassle free stay. Tom was really responsive to our questions and provided excellent information ahead of our stay. Will definitely recommend to others and come back when we can!

We booked this place for a last-minute getaway over MLK weekend. Thomas was quick to respond and gave us very detailed instructions for how to get to his beautiful place. He was great at communicating with us and making sure we were ready for our weekend. We got in a little later than planned, but he had the heater on...

Apologies for belated review... by writing this in "past tense" it makes it real that my "Alpine Escape" has officially ended~! Words cannot describe the warm and friendly hospitality of our experience at the "Alpine Escape"... from our first internet inquiry through subsequent correspondences filled with questions and Tom's good natured assistance & advice, we felt like we already knew...

Wow, Thanks Susanne and Greg! We're glad you so enjoyed your time. I hope we'll see you back.

About the neighborhood
Yosemite West is located inside the park entrance, and sits near and intersection that takes you in three other directions to several of the park's most amazing features: Yosemite Valley, Glacier Point, Mariposa Grove of Giant Sequoias and Wawona, including the Wawona golf course are all within 15 miles (30 minutes) from Yosemite West in three different directions. The Badger Pass ski area is only seven miles away. Tuolumne Meadows and Tioga Pass on the eastern border of the park will be a two-hour drive or more.

Our home is near the end of a cul-de-sac and normally a quiet, relaxing place to spend a vacation.
Getting around
You need a car to stay here. There is a shuttle system in Yosemite, but it serves only a few miles of road at the east end of Yosemite Valley. To get most places in the park, including our house, you need a car.

In winter, we recommend renting an All-Wheel Drive vehicle. You are still required to carry chains in chain control areas, but if you have AWD, you will rarely need to actually apply chains, which can make your trip significantly more comfortable.
