I really enjoyed my stay at Granlibakken! The staff was great, my room clean and quiet. The small spa for massage is great, too. I like that they are moving toward being more green and focused on wellness. It is very close to a lot of things, but removed enough that you feel like you are not in the middle... More

We enjoyed our stay immensely! Thank you Max at the front counter for all your help! You were great! We would stay here again in a heartbeat. Loved that you could plan a time around the fire pit, rent bikes, and all the bike riding areas!

Booked a studio for the labor day weekend to enjoy Lake Tahoe with my wife. Initially we stayed in a studio, probably build in the 70's with paper thin walls, crappy murphy bed and old (noisy) kitchen equipment. Everything "works" and is clean but it's never updated and not worth the $239/night. After filing a complaint, we changed rooms to... More

Recommended but use bidding site to make your reservations ($140 studio fireplace full kitchen sleeps 4). Staff is euro accent and sweet. Beautiful location. Great for groups and family reunions. Great free breakfast, the best.

We stayed in the main lodge area in the summer. The room was very small, and the accommodations were a little worn and outdated--not that any of that mattered as we were too busy enjoying Tahoe to stay in our room. The lodge is located very close to Tahoe City and the lake. We were also within a short drive... More

We stayed two nights in this resort and everything was good, besides from the breakfast, which was amazing! Also the girls at the reception were really nice and helpful, they provided us a lot of useful information about Tahoe City. The hotel is not located in downtown but it's quite close to it.

We spent one night at Granlibakken Lodge in Tahoe City. The Lodge spans 70 acres of pine trees and mountains. The air is clean and weather always beautiful. We stayed in a 2 bed, 2 bath unit. Plenty of room for the five of us with kitchen and fireplace. It was a bit dated,though upgrades had been made in the... More

Our family has been to Granlibakken about 6 or 7 times. It's relaxing with beautiful grounds, pool, tennis courts, amazing ropes course, and superb hot breakfast daily with lovely people working there.
