“The Pub is the place to go!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 14, 2014

We had a wonderful dinner with friends and family at the Granlibakken Pub. Upon entering the Pub the kids immediatly found a place on the hearth in front of warm and inviting fire. The adults found the bar, ordered a drink and joined the kids at the fireplace while waiting for a table. After a short wait ( while listening to live music) we were seated and had our orders taken right away. Our two favorite dishes were the fish and chips and the Holland Michigan Chicken.The kids scarfed up the burgers and spaghetti as well. All the portions were generous and the price was very reasonable. A great place to go with the family after a day of sledding and skiing on Granlibakken Hill!

We agree with you, our Cedar House Pub is a great spot for families! So glad you enjoyed the fireside dining, live music and our popular Bill's Chicken and Fish & Chips. Thank you for taking the time to reach out to us with your kind words. We hope you come back and lodge with Granlibakken, you'll receive 50% off at our snowplay area for the kids when you stay and play!

Family and friends spent Thanksgiving at the resort. The evening feast was incredible and included turkey, stuffing, salads and more. This is a great way to get together with family and spend the evening feasting and then breakfast the next morning included in the room rate.

Room Tip: All rooms were great!

Highly recommend to any age, this place has it all! And if it's not here, you're close enough to civilization to get it! It has the capacity to be fun and exciting, or it can be intimate and romantic. Truly a special gem!

We stayed here between seasons and loved it. Tahoe is so beautiful in the fall. They have a ropes course that is very large, creative and well done. The rooms are a decent size with a big kitchen. I would recommend this to everyone!

This is an excellent place to stay when visiting the Lake Tahoe area, spring, summer, fall, and winter. The service is excellent, the staff are friendly. The breakfasts are amazing and are in themselves worth the stay. There's so much to do here in any season - forest trails to hike, snowshoe, cross-country ski, sled (all equipment can be rented on site). The rooms are clean and cozy. It's a couple miles outside of Tahoe City, right on the lake. Lots of bike riding trails in the area and several beaches, both pebble and sand. Very close to Homewood, Alpine Meadows, Squaw Valley ski resorts. Wonderful hot tub, sauna, and heated pool facility on site. Tennis courts on site also. Great place to stay.

Great Service, nice rooms. We spent Thanksgiving there, where we had a great thanksgiving dinner. Hotel is located in a pine forest near lake Tahoe, with beautiful clean air, nice hiking trails, sauna, open swimming pool and hot tub surrounded by trees. Great breakfast. This is a beautiful place to relax and recharge.
