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... More

This was our visit time that we stayed in their cabin. We have a little dog so the resort is very dog friendly, We arrived 4 days after a storm so most of the fall colors had been blown on the ground but some trees still had their yellow leaves. The check-in was very efficient. John, the owner, was very... More

For those of you who like the Disney Magic Kingdom, you won't like it here. This is the real deal...open your senses to Nature. Situate in a large aspen grove, Sorensens allows you to let go of the techy trappings of life...no wifi, no tv, no phones to speak of (Verizon does work there). Feels like off the grid, but... More

We loved our stay at the cabin. It was clean, comfortable, rustic, and we had everything we needed! Great meals at the restaurant, and the surroundings are beautifu! Fall colors, crispy air, camp fire, it was very nice!

Enjoyable well furnished Hope Valley House accommodating three couples and enough room for children, too. The setting is located in 7,000 feet elevation with beautiful and colorful aspens and granite rock formations next to the Carson River. Good dining and rustic cafe on premises.

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... More

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... More

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.
