Thank you for selecting Granlibakken for your stay in Lake Tahoe. I am sorry that you were not provided with a king bed. I am pleased to read that you really liked Granlibakken otherwise. If can assist with further arrangements please contact me, I am happy to help. More

I stayed here with my Mom and two young kids. We had a great time. The pool and spa are huge and very clean. The breakfast was excellent with many different options. We wish we could have done the ropes course but it was closed while we were there.

My 13-year old daughter and I stayed her for two nights in March. We awoke to 8" of new snow and explored the surrounding trails and amenities. The staff are very nice and the food (ate dinner at the cafe) was great. We look forward to returning!

Thank you for your review! Very happy that you experienced a big snow storm here at Granlibakken, always a wonderful sight to wake up to. Cedar House Pub, only open during ski season, has delicious family friendly menu items. Stop by the Treetop Adventure Course, a ropes and zip lining aerial park, next time. We hope to see you again... More

Whether you are traveling solo or with a group of 200, Granlibakken is a perfect destination. It is small enough to offer the feeling of complete seclusion while large enough to offer a wide variety of top quality amenities and activity options. This past winter I coordinated our Corporate Retreat for 100 people. Of those 100 people there were 0... More

We like Granlibakken because it's a very family friendly place for little ones to learn to ski. It's affordable, and the ski hill is a manageable size. (There's also a smaller sled hill that's lots of fun.) The guest rooms in the lodge are impeccable, with gas fireplaces and high ceilings. It's close to the bigger Tahoe ski resorts, and... More

There's good service and then there's granlibakken. Wow just doesn't cut it. First and foremost, in the booking process they are so helpful, it was like I didn't have to price shop around, no bad negotiations, just a great price for a great room, can't be beat. I arrive and I was expecting a small room with a large bed,... More

This is the 4th time we have stayed at Granlibakken. We love the setting, the breakfasts are fantastic, we have done the Tree Top Adventure 3 times and our family loves it. We were disappointed that most of the snow was melted and the sledding hill was slushy but the kids had a good time anyhow. We have also used... More
