Family owned and run, Sorensen's Resort is open year-round and features 29 log cabins in a compound-like setting. Our cabin was comfortable, with a queen bed, kitchenette, microwave, wood-burning fireplace, loft and bathroom with shower. Forget about with-fi! This is a perfect spot to take a digital vacation. There’s a cafe that’s quite good, serving breakfast, lunch and dinner. Nice...

We have returned again to Sorensen's, this time at the height of the golden aspen season: fabulous! This resort never fails to leave us exhilarated, refreshed and filled with the peace and beauty of the setting. We stayed in "Willow", and loved the cozy Franklin stove, double beds, and pine-paneled rooms. The Hope Valley gives easy access to numerous absolutely...

Have driven past Sorensen's Resort for many years and have always wanted the experience of staying. Finally got the opportunity when my friend and I decided we wanted to go Candy Dance Craft Fair in Genoa, Nevada but didn't want to stay in the valley. Made your three night reservation and were lucky enough to stay in a cabin, Willow....

There is no better place to relax than Sorensen's Resort. We stayed there for a week during the fall colors of Hope Valley. Our cabin, Norway, has the perfect deck with picnic table, wood burning stove and the MOST comfortable large queen size sofa beds. We never felt we were on a sofa bed and as couches they were large...

We live close to Hope Valley and come up here for lunch occasionally at Sorenson's Resort. My husband has enjoyed the beef stew in the past - but the quiches are amazing. Light and fluffy - my favorite is the Ham and Onion. Service was good (but they are family owned and when busy you will be waiting). We walked...

Our visit was perfect! Every detail was quietly taken care of! A lovely bottle of champagne awaited us in the fridge to help us celebrate our 50th anniversary! Freshly cut kindling arrived on our porch each evening for the cozy woodburning stove in our cabin. Even with management stress due to staffing issues, everyone was helpful and good humored! Kudos...

We loved everything about Sorensens from the food to the accommodations to the very courteous and helpful staff and management. We stayed in the Chapel cabin and it had a very private deck and was very cozy. Highly recommended!!!

This review if for Sorensen's cafe, not the resort. We came for a late lunch yesterday about 2:30, and were told there was a waiting list. We were happy to put our name on the list, and stayed right by the desk to monitor our place. I spoke to him several times to ascertain where we were on the list,...

Fall color season is upon us and during this time we serve up to 300 meals a day, including the day you visited. We apologize that there was some disorganization during a staff shift change and over $300 worth of groceries arriving at the same time. Sorensen's is a small, family-run resort with a terrific staff. Apologies that the owner...

On vacation from the UK in September 2016. Driving to lake Tahoe for the first time. Very disappointed when arriving at Lake Tahoe South. Over commercialised, tower blocks and not what we expected. Continued on south getting desperate for some accommodation as time was getting on. Someone upstairs must have smiled on us as we came across Sorensen's Resort. It...
