As part of a group that used this facility for silent meditation practice I can unequivocally state that the result was wonderful. This facility was able to serve our unique requirements and they did so with grace. Special thanks to Max for finding my forgotten items and mailing them back to me.

I and my two sons stayed at Granlibakken Resort over Spring Break. We had a great time and enjoyed our time at Granlibakken. The breakfast buffet was awesome, the rooms were large and comfortable, the pool and hot tub were great to relax in after a day on the slopes. Most of all, the Granlibakken team were very friendly and... More

Tahoe region is a lovely place and for a conference or a family vacation in ski country, this place is excellent. The staff were exceptional in their helpfulness and politeness. The food in the dining hall was very good. And the location is excellent. It isn't right on the slopes of the major areas, so if you want to ski... More

We went to Lake Tahoe to ski February 19-22, 2013. Our room at the Pine Lodge at Granlibakken was spacious and comfortable. Two queen beds, a refrigerator, and plenty of room. They don't mind if you bring skis/snowboards into the room. A full buffet breakfast was included with our package, which had fruit, cereal, yogurt, and eggs and bacon/sausage. Good... More

We stayed here last weekend for a getaway up to Tahoe. The resort itself has a great location, within easy driving distance of several of the main ski mountains. The front desk staff was very helpful upon checkin, and our room was both clean and quiet. We frequented their hot tub after a long day of skiing, and it was... More

Living in the Bay Area, we have been regularly traveling to Tahoe. Alway stay in this place, so it's become a second home for us. It's quite basic, but serves our needs after a long day of skiing. Their breakfasts are usually very generous, and they often offer discounts for the major ski resorts.
