Description

Explore 165 acres of pine and aspen forest or use the resort as a relaxing home away from home while enjoying the Kirkwood Ski Area, Grover Hot Springs State Park, or Lake Tahoe. Accommodations range from bed and breakfast rooms to group cabins to full mountain home rentals. Featured room amenities include a gas log fireplace, a private deck overlooking the pond, cozy blankets that provide a classic log cabin ambiance, and pet-friendly cabins. Sorensen’s Country Café is a full-service restaurant offering breakfast, lunch, and dinner to resort guests and the public. Stop into the gift shop to purchase a bottle of wine and gourmet snack then meander to a cozy spot by the West Fork Carson River. Borrow a complimentary pair of snowshoes and later warm up in the Norwegian-style wood-fire sauna. Spring and summer offers trout fishing, guided wildflower walks, and hundreds of miles of hiking trails. Special workshops on topics such as watercolor painting, history, and photography are offered throughout the year.

Sorensen's Resort is the place to stay if you are looking for a clean and comfortable accommodations, great food and a lovely atmosphere. There is hiking,fishing and just enjoying the flora and fauna of the valley. If you are looking for action too, South Tahoe is only 20 minutes away. Try it out and you will come back like we have in the past and will again next year!

Just what the doctor ordered

My wife, Karen, Dog Charlotte and I spent two wonderful nights at Sorensen's resort recently. We stayed on Sunday, June 17th and Monday, June 18th my wife's birthday. We'd stayed there 3-4 times before over the past 10 years. This time was one of the most memorable. The owner John and his wife greeted us upon our arrival. Allowed us to check in early. Remembered our names throughout the stay and let us know of the possibilities of bears in the resort. We actually spotted one outside our cabin one morning. Charlotte scared it away. John was most appologetic about the incident. I said no worries it added icing to the cake of our visit. I greatly appreciated how they were trying to deal with the bear issue in as humane a way as possible. Food was great at the restaurant. We also ended up on a great hike up to Winnemuca (sp?) lake from Carson Pass on 88. THe worst part of the whole stay was pulling away on our trip home. The well worn chairs at the foot of the bed in the Sheephearders Cabin was my parking spot during down time. It was more like I was staying at my Uncle John and Aunt Patty's cabin then a resort. A true home away from home. We can't wait to return. Scott R. Kirkman

Warm in the snow

We spent 4 days at Sorenson's over the holidays. Our cabin was cozy and clean. The bed was comfortable. It was wonderful to have a kitchen. The gas stove kept the cabin warm. The staff was extremely helpful, and breakfast our last day was great. We really enjoyed the unique Gingerbread houses on the dining room tables. The location was great for cross-country skiing and the sauna provided welcome warmth and muscle-relaxing (and a fun way to meet other guests). We look forward to another stay.

Very Welcoming

In one night's stay, I felt more comfortable, relaxed, and welcome than any vacation my 47 years have allowed. Thank you for the happiness you have given my children.
