Since 1926, the Sorensen’s Resort has offered skiing, biking, rafting, and much more. The hotel is located in California’s Hope Valley, a pristine pocket of the Sierra Mountains, 20 miles south of Lake Tahoe. The best part is that pets are welcome. “We have lots of outdoor programs at Sorensen’s,” said owner Patty Brissenden. “Isn’t the point to enjoy the mountains with your pet, whether it’s skiing or hiking?”
And that’s just what pet owners can expect here. “We always love our pets and feel having some pet-friendly cabins at our resort is good,” Brissenden said. “Since we are kid friendly, have weddings, honeymooners, anniversary couples, family reunions, we thought … why not pets?”
They offer an array of amenities for your pet. “We keep doggie bowls for food and water in the cabins and offer a taste upon arrival,” she added. Of course, they also take into consideration special needs of people. “We try to balance it out for all,” said John Brissenden, co-owner. “We ask that all dogs remain in leashes, and we try to accommodate anyone with allergies. We want everyone to be happy.”
“Our staff is very friendly,” Brissenden says. “I also think our history will attract pet owners,” he added. “We have programs for pet owners to bond with their pets as well as programs for the pet owner to unwind.” Don’t hesitate to pack your bags and take your pup on a vacation to Sorensen’s Resort this winter!
