Service is not the best. The sled/ski area is extremely slow. Lines are long only because their process is very inefficient. Nice place for small children and a great hot breakfast. The weekend requires a two night minimum. We enjoyed Tahoe City restaurants in the immediate area.

This place was nice - fun for the kids. We stayed in a 2 bedroom townhouse with a loft. This was a nice blend of vacation rental (full kitchen) and hotel service (daily housekeeping, toiletries like you would find in a hotel room). We stayed during a large storm when the power went out - and though some things could...

Our family of four stayed at Granlibakken for the first time during the week before Christmas and we had a wonderful time. We stayed in a two bedroom apartment, which was very comfortable and clean. The only thing I can nitpick about was that the kitchen and bathrooms probably need an update but everything worked well for us. We LOVED...

Rooms are clean, staff is friendly and helpful, and the breakfast is fantastic. Great sled,riding hill for the kids and the ski slope is small, but excellent for beginners. The ski slope is also a fantastic benefit at Granlibakken for when the roads make traveling to the larger slopes impossible. Just a short walk to the ski slope and sled...
