About the property

Cozy Cabin, 2 Bedrooms + Bunk Area, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

As valleys go, Hope Valley would be considered rather small, but without question, it is unrivaled in it's natural beauty. It sits at 7000 ft at the base of Luther Pass on Hwy 89 out of Meyers & South Lake Tahoe. Whether it is the quiet white of winter's freshly fallen snow blanketing the Valley floor, or the brilliant shades of yellow & burnt orange Aspen leaves when they change from the summers green in the fall, the beautiful & scenic Hope Valley is worth visiting any time of the year!!

Our cabin sits just across the meadow from the famous Sorensen's Resort, where Hope Valley ends and where Woodford's Canyon begins. The west fork of the Carson River, after gently meandering its way across the valley floor, begins its descent into Woodford's Canyon on its way to the Carson Basin in Nevada. It is a beautiful and soothing freestone river that flows within a few feet of our cabin's deck.

Our cabin has just been completely remodeled, and you will find it comfortable & cozy. It has a spacious redwood deck with a fantastic view of the river, the meadow across the river and the mountains beyond. It has a fully stocked kitchen, washer/dryer, satellite TV, gas BBQ and comfortable solid teak deck furniture to relax in & soak up the sights & take in the river sounds below you.

The activities are endless; there are many hiking trailsheads nearby, for lake fishing there are a variety of lakes within a 30 minute drive, stream fishing only steps away, Kirkwood Meadows is 20 minutes from your door step, and if the sites and thrills of Lake Tahoe are calling you, it's only a 30 minute drive away. There are the small quaint communities including Woodfords & the historical town of Markleeville nearby which are an easy, scenic drive down Hwy 88 as it follows the Carson River. There is even an opportunity for indulging in some natural hot springs at the nearby Grover Hot Springs State Park.

Come to relax, come to play, and come to be overwhelmed by the soothing and majestic beauty of Mother Nature's precious jewel...the Hope Valley!!

Great cabin

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was great and as advertised. We walked one evening to the Sorensen resort across the street to have dinner (which was good), a nice plus given the somewhat remote location.

A blizzard hit us on or last day, and the owner was very flexible and responsive to help us coordinate our exit.

Lovely cabin nestled in a winter wonderland

  • 5 of 5

Hope Valley was a snowy slice of heaven this winter with the big storms, and this house on the Carson River was an ideal location to enjoy what the season had to offer. The house is well-appointed, roomy, and cheerful. Its position right above the river itself offers a powerful sense of connection to nature. And the views are spectacular. The hosts are just as great, informative, flexible, and focussed on the goal of making the stay perfect.

Lovely mountain home

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay at this vacation home. The house was super clean when we arrived, the kitchen was well-equipped, and the bedrooms were ample and beds comfy. We could hear the river flowing below the deck, and there lots of blankets to stay cozy inside after playing in the snow. Thank you!

Beautiful River Cabin in Hope Valley

  • 5 of 5

We recently spent a very enjoyable week at this wonderful cabin in Hope Valley. It sits right on the river and has a stunning view of the mountain behind Sorenson's Resort. The updated cabin interior retains a cozy feeling with so many special touches. We appreciated the available storage, large kitchen and two bathrooms. This cabin is the perfect home base for exploring the beautiful Carson Pass area. We took advantage of many local hiking trails and especially enjoyed kayaking and fishing at Silver Lake.

The cabin owner was very helpful and sent us a fact sheet prior to our arrival. You know, all that important information about lockboxes, lights and Wifi access. We will cherish the memories of our time spent at this cabin with spectacular views of the river, the meadow and the mountains.
