The staff, the venue, the rooms, the location, the food, the bar - all were top notch! We had a corporate retreat at this facility and the staff was so welcoming, the dinners and breakfasts were delicious, and there were so many things to do. From swimming, to hiking, biking, tennis, and even a ropes course!

I was at Granlibakken for a workshop conference. The food was great and the accommodations were very nice too. The ropes course at this place is not to be missed. The grounds are very well maintained too. I had a single bungalow which was very nice with a fridge. The rooms are a tad noisy because you can here what... More

Very clean, warm and friendly staff. Buffet breakfast included. Poor weather prevented use of activities. Room had kitchen, & fireplace. It was small enough that getting around the furniture was tight. When we first entered the room we could not find the bedroom; then we realized there was a pull down Murphy bed! This was a first for us. This... More

WE were pleased with the cleanliness of the room, and quiet setting. The room we stayed in, (understanding they are all different) was clean, however dated with plain furnishings. If we were to come up with the kids this would have been a perfect place as they have a lot of outdoor activities, including hiking, pool, and spa and a... More

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.
