Another great stay at this terrific resort. Keep in mind that it is somewhat rustic and not a glitzy resort. We stayed in the Sierra House again which gave us plenty of room for us and our granddaughter. The meals again were wonderful. Their beef stew is the BEST I've ever had. The lamb chops for dinner were delicious and... More

Just came back to the Bay Area after four nights at Sorensen's. I enjoyed every moment there. My family including my dog stayed at the, "Homestead". The cabin is very comfortable and the people I met were warm and friendly. My days were spent enjoying the cool early morning weather and the warm afternoons. My husband and daughter hiked and...

My husband and I have stayed at Sorensen's 17 times over the past twenty plus summers. It continues to be our welcome retreat in the mountains. It is a classic hotel in the sense that it has the kinds of cabins one would expect in the mountains. Cabins are available in a variety of sizes and prices; prices vary depending... More

We found this RV Park (the Hope Valley RV Resort, about 1/4 mile east of Sorensen's on highway 88) while driving back and forth to Kirkwood Ski area this past winter. We booked 4 nights during the Death Race (it's a bike race for 4000 bicycles to ride 5 mountain passes in one day). The resort was fantastic but we... More

My wife and I rented the River House during the summer and had all of our meals at the restaurant. We were very impressed with the quality of the food and the attentiveness of the team. John, who owns and manages the resort, was super helpful and interested in making our trip the best experience. I highly recommend Sorensen's and... More

In July 2014, my hiking group (6 people) rented the " River House" , a 3-bedroom house across from the main buildings. This is a relatively small house with 2 bedrooms and a loft--not really 3 separate bedrooms. While it was functional, it was almost unbearably HOT!! The upstairs "bedrooms" each have only one small window and management left a... More

We spent 2 nights, May 21 and 22, at Sorensen's and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We have spent many other nights there and have always enjoyed it- comfortable cabins, delicious food, especially the beef stew for dinner, and almost anything for breakfast or lunch. We were there for for a little fishing and just getting away. Staff were wonderful. I... More

We camp across the road from this place and finally stopped in for breakfast this past year. The food was delicious and priced very well. I have also had lunch here and it was also very good. I have yet to try dinner - the dinner prices were higher than I was willing to pay this time around, and you... More

Sorenson's is the perfect high-Sierra get away from the hustle and bustle of city life. Individual cabins, which are sized for one/two, families or large groups are clean, comfortable and contain all amenities. Restaurant on site serves home made meals (think fresh salmon, stew, pies) and there are many hiking trails nearby. In the winter there are some great snow... More

We spent four days last week with our new puppy in the Sheepherder Cabin at Sorensen's. We have been coming here for decades, mostly in the winter for snow activities. This time we had so much fun hiking in Hope Valley that we will come again for spring and summer activities. They were even good enough to deliver a meal... More
