Granlibakken Tahoe offers a amazing retreat-like setting with easy access to all things North/West Shore. Solid wifi, great staff and privacy. On the rustic side but that's part of the charm. Complimentary breakfast makes the mornings that much easier.

The place is ok. A bit old and in need of reforms, but it's ok. Breakfast was good as well as all the good there. Definitely a great chef and kitchen staff. The main complaint is with people working at reception. They never knew anything and didn't try to help.

Great property and location. Beautiful spot. Amazing breakfast. It seems the unit owners are each responsible for updating their rooms so you don't know what you are getting. Our room had some old and funky decorations but friends rooms were beautiful and updated. We were glad we had gotten a good deal on our room. But, overall love the Granlibakken...

We were here for a silent meditation retreat with about 300 others. The staff was friendly and respectful. The lodge is surrounded by pine trees and the sierras. The food was great. Our room was quite, clean and we both slept well. High marks for Granlibakken.
