We were here for a silent meditation retreat with about 300 others. The staff was friendly and respectful. The lodge is surrounded by pine trees and the sierras. The food was great. Our room was quite, clean and we both slept well. High marks for Granlibakken.

I was here for a conference (not sure if they do certain rooms for conferences so wanted to disclaimer that). I had my own room. The room itself was decently appointed.

I attended our State Conference with about 50 other CDFA employees. The food and drink was delicious and plentiful, the accommodations were beautiful and the scenery and ambiance second to none. I would highly recommend this venue for meetings, conferences and retreats of any kind.

Rather than staying at a small cabin or motel during our August visit to west shore, we chose this mountain conference resort for its proximity to Emerald Bay and D.L. Bliss State Park. Although we weren’t there for a meeting, it was nice to be treated to the full amenities of a resort – swimming pool, tennis courts, bike rentals... More

This place is beautiful! And is very quiet. The occasional screams and cheers from the adventure zip lining Park(BTW so much fun) located right behind it are welcomed. The room was comfortable.
