For you next winter getaway, escape to 74 peaceful wooded acres in a picturesque mountain setting at Granlibakken Resort. Whether you fancy laidback relaxation or outdoor excitement, this is the place to be. Get in some shredding while avoiding the chaos (and pricey tickets) of the big ski spots thanks to the Granlibakken’s private ski hill. An onsite rental shop is ready to outfit you and your crew for the powder day ahead - whether you’re snowboarding, snowshoeing, downhill or cross country skiing. Once the crew is snowed out for the day, grab a quick bite at the Ski Hut before heading back to your lodgings. At the suite, see how fast everyone can swap snow jackets for swimsuits, and then lead the way to the pool deck. Kiddos can splash away to their hearts’ content in the year-round heated pool while the grownups soothe weary muscles (signs of an adventure-filled day) with an aprés soak in the hot tubs - follow up with a steam in the sauna for some extra R ‘n R. As the sun begins to set on the Sierras, discuss dinner options with the crew. An en-suite kitchen gives you the option whipping up your signature dish, but if you don’t really feel like cooking (hey, you’re on vacation) head to Cedar House Pub for family dinner. As your crew dines on hearty American fare swap stories from the day’s adventures, and start planning for tomorrow’s - zip lining at Treetop Adventure Park anyone?
Spacious yet cozy, quaint and comfortable, apartment style suites at Granlibakken Resort are perfectly appointed to provide an inviting home-base for your trip. Studios and one-bedroom units are tastefully decorated with mountain charm and sleep four to six crew members comfortably, many featuring an extra sleeper sofa. A living area with flat screen TV and warm fireplace makes a great space for relaxing during downtime, while a fully equipped kitchen and designated dining area lets your group enjoy home-cooked meals.
Nestled near the western shore of Lake Tahoe and only a few miles from lively Tahoe City, Granlibakken is just as alluring during the summer months as it is in the winter. Hit the water with adventures like sailing, fishing, or kayaking on Lake Tahoe or Truckee River. Stay active onsite by hiking private trails, playing a friendly match of tennis, or taking a yoga class. Recoup from all the action with an afternoon of pampering at the Lighthouse Spa. Though it’s tempting to spend your whole stay at the resort, head into town to browse boutiques, art galleries and fine dining. Planning a romantic date night? Catch an indie flick at the Tahoe Art Haus & Cinema followed by dinner in the Lakeside Dining Room at Sunnyside Steakhouse.
