Great trip, but disappointed ending, really poor front Desk service !
We had a great group trip, stayed in one of their townhouse, generally speaking, the place is okay, it is not fancy, the decoration is old fashioned , but place is clean with kitchen. Personally, I think it is on the expensive side given its condition. But that is not our complaint. The real problem is their front desk manager messed up our tree top reservation, as result, we waited few hours to the supposed reservation time, and can’t do it. Later, his response to the incident is rude and unprofessional. It is such disappointed way for ending our 3 day trip. I will not be back here, nor would recommend the place to others.

Pleasantly surprised when we got this last minute booking. Our room was recently updated and included a kitchenette. Tasteful simple lodge style decor and comfortable mattress. Pool and hot tub were great. Breakfast very good. Had some trouble with our room keys that took a few tries to get fixed, but that was the only complaint. Best thing? The ropes course and zip line on site!

My wife, I and five year old daughter loved Granlibakken. It’s rustic, it’s casual and it’s fresh air and walking and swimming with an accommodating staff. We look forward to next visit. It’s near Wolfdale and Sunnyside, the two best restaurants in the area.

It was a very pleasant surprise to discover the Granlibakken. This resort is within walking distance to a range of water sports at the nearby Tahoe City, expands thru out acres of beautiful California native forest, and offers within it's grounds a range of fun activities such as a jungle obstacle course, pool, spa, hiking & tennis courts. The staff is cordial & attentive to details & the rooms have that old quaint charm.
