Guest reviews for Granlibakken Tahoe

2 out of 5
the room was a little smaller than i imagined, but great as in the photo. I was very happy with the installation because I was with my family. but on the website it said exactly the things that were paid. and the activities did not show that they were paid separately. I paid practically $ 1,000.00 for a stay and nothing, absolutely nothing was possible to do without paying. all activities were paid for. when i arrived i asked if the spa was included they told me yes. but when I called, I would have to pay for almost $ 120.00 for the massage. I really liked the place. very quiet and comfortable. absolutely beautiful and charming for those who want a few days of safe rest. because of Covid I chose to be there than in full hotels. the region is not crowded. there is no cluster. I cooked at home and we didn't need to go to town for anything. but really having to pay every day for the activities there that made me upset. the value of the treehouse was absurd. my children were frustrated by not being able to go. because we stayed 4 days and we no longer think it's fair to pay for anything else.

Thank you for your review of Granlibakken Tahoe! Our location in the middle of a 74 acre wooded valley is peaceful, but not secluded. We are located just one mile from Tahoe City and Lake Tahoe, and just a few minutes' drive to some major ski resorts and Tahoe attractions. Breakfast is included in all rates, and is the perfect way to fuel up for a day of Tahoe adventure. We hope that you visit again soon!

Good for family

The place is in a great location, walking distance to Tahoe house, bike trails, and shopping, river rafting. Great for family, tennis and swimming, and it is very quiet most of the time. One big problem, it is very outdated, the place looks old and tired. For example, the carpets in the main building worn and dirty. Patio furnitures broken, disarranged. Furnitures in our lodge are very worn, saggy coach, towels hard and worn. The beds are soft (from being worn) and uncomfortable. Would not be surprised if these are infested with dust mites. There were spider webs and dusts all over, especially up near skylights and on shelves. We made big mistake turning on the fan to cool our lodge, which caused a majory dust storm. The kitchen is good and clean. Overall, it needs major updating for the money that these owners paid in monthly due as well as what they are charging for guests.

Granlibakken Resort Exceeded My Expectations!

Granlibakken Resort hosted our daughter's wedding weekend in August, 2010. The wedding staff, chef, service staff and managing director did a fantastic job with our event. We had over 100 people stay for 2-3 nights at the resort and they were all pleased with their accomodations, breakfast buffet, pool, hiking and various activities in the Tahoe City area. Granlibakken is the perfect location for a family vacation, reunion, business meeting, couples weekend, etc. I highly recommend Granlibakken!
