This beautiful spot is very rustic and historical. If you want room service and a spa, this is not your place. If you want cute cabins and rooms with amenities not found at newer properties, this is it! How many places loan snow shoes? There a small touches such as cotton balls and q-tips that are appreciated. Beautiful location with...

We stayed at Sorensen's for 2 nights to get out of the city and show our kids the snow. It was great because we didn't have to leave the resort. There is a sledding hill, snow shoes, fire pit, a wood fired sauna, and great food. We stayed in a cabin with a sleeping loft for kids and we brought...

Living in Carson City is fun and pretty convenient when it comes to outdoor enthusiasts. One winter weekend, friends of mine asked to join them on an evening excursion on snow shoes in Hope Valley. No to mention an incredible stay that evening in one of the coziest cabins I have ever spent the night in. Clean, inviting, warm and...

We loved our stay at Sorensen's. It is in a picture postcard setting and we took advantage of the close proximity to Kirkwood and snowshoeing. The staff is very accommodating and the food is wonderful. It is quiet and relaxing and a provided for an authentic snow experience.

Sorensen’s is ideally located at 7,000 feet elevation in the Sierra Nevada just twenty minutes from Southshore, Lake Tahoe. Winter activities include skiing at a world-class resort a few minutes away and unlimited snowshoeing and cross country skiing opportunities. Summer provides access to many miles of excellent hiking. The cabins are comfy and cozy with good beds and kitchenettes in...

We love coming to Sorensens Resort in the winter. Their cabins are so comfortable and warm on a cold snowy day. The rooms are well appointed with reading lights above both sides of the bed. So thoughtful. We come to cross country ski but they lend out snow shoes when we can't ski. They also provide hot cocoa, tea, and...

It was snowing so mightily during our entire trip to, from and during our stay at this wonderful resort. I was there with my sister, my son and his two young children. We stayed in a nice log cabin for four, and that also allowed up to two dogs, though I left my pups at hoime with myu husband. We...

Lovely cabins in the woods - a magical place. Although it is not far from South Lake Tahoe and ski resorts such as Kirkwood, Sorensen's feels remote, a genuine getaway from all the busyness of our wired lives. There's no cell service or wifi, just beautiful Mother Nature all around. We loved our cozy cabin and the easy access right...

Based on our recent experience, I would caution Sorensen guests about believing that reserving and paying for a cabin in advance means that you will actually get the cabin on the dates reserved. We have enjoyed Sorensen’s a number of times in recent years. In July, we reserved our favorite cabin for three days at Thanksgiving. We paid the full...
