See our virtual tour featuring 1 bedroom and bath on the main floor and 2 private bedrooms and 1 1/2 baths on the second floor. Grandlibakken Resort includes a ski hill for sledding, snowboards or skiing, equipment rental, groomed trails for hiking or cross country, pool and spa, and especially for kids - the Treetop adventure - - all a short walk from our cosy condo. Summer activities include outdoor tennis courts (including Tennis Camp for kids) and near by boating. Onsite Restaurant and bar.
Lake Tahoe is such an amazing vacation area with sports and activities for the entire family, available in every season of the year.
The charming living room has a vaulted ceiling and stone, wood burning fireplace. Flat panel HDTV's, each with DVD player, available in living room and 2 bedrooms. First floor has a king bed room with full bath (shower/tub). Second floor has two private bedrooms each with queen bed and bath.
The Granlibakken Resort and Conference Center is walking distance and offers many amenities including bar and restaurant. Be sure to try the amazing breakfast buffet. If you are attending a conference here but they have not enough rooms, rent ours! The resort maintains all roads and parking areas during the winter so you have no concerns about the snow preventing you from reaching the ski areas. Kids and beginners will enjoy the onsite ski/sledding hill during the winter. Our guests have half price lift tickets (adults $12, kids $7 all day). The entire family will enjoy the heated pool, spa and sauna available all year (free for our guests). Tennis courts are also available during the summer (free for our guests). Water sports, boating rafting and swimming abound in the nearby Lake Tahoe marinas and parks. Interested in hiking or cross country skiing? You need not look further than groomed trails on our own property here in the mountains - all free for our guests!
Also, if you have young children who will be taking their first ski lessons or snow boarding, the on-site Granlibakken ski hill offers low cost lessons and rentals. The hill is within walking distance of our condo. Next, consider Homewood! The kids will enjoy the smaller mountains, but there are still serious runs for the adults to have fun. Homewood is 5 miles away and half the price of Squaw and offers a free shuttle from and to Granlibakken. Add the sledding hill, pool, and restaurant back at the condo, and you hardly need a car! Bike rentals available right here on the resort property or near-by in Tahoe City. There is a SUPER paved riding trail right along the west shore of Lake Tahoe, or head up the Tahoe Rim trail into the woods. Ready for the big hills? Squaw Valley only 15 minutes away. Equestrian trail ride - 15 minutes away. Amtrak? Only 10 miles away in Truckee. Bars, restaurants, boat rental, beaches and stores of Tahoe City only 5 minutes. What could be more convenient ?
Email or call us with any questions. We look forward to having you as our guests at the Grandlibakken resort.

Year Purchased: 2012
About the owner: We are Florida snowbirds, with family ties to beautiful Lake Tahoe. Sailors, educator, musician, parents. We generally use the condo June, July and Christmas week. It will be available most of the rest of the year.
Why the Owner Chose Granlibakken: Our condo at Granlibakkan offers a unique combination of comfortable and affordable accommodations for six people, complete resort amenities and short distances to most ski areas, beaches, marinas, parks and casinos. Whatever your interests, you will find it onsite or nearby. Afterwards return to our cozy, wood burning fireplace and have a quiet evening with your friends and family. We work hard to accommodate your schedule, and offer discounts for reservations longer than six nights. We also offer lower rates for the off-season periods.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo: Lake Tahoe is such an amazing vacation area. We are a long walk or a short ride away from Tahoe City and the marinas. The spectacular lake, about 12 miles wide and 22 miles long is crystal clear for summer activities like boating, swimming and rafting. Tahoe City marinas provide rentals of any equipment you may need! In the winter, we are only minutes away from the most popular Tahoe ski areas. After skiing or boating, enjoy a fire in the living room or a glass of wine with mountain views from our deck. Where else can you have boating, skiing and hiking like this ? The Grandlibakken resort offers many free and low cost activities for the whole family on site, surrounded by acres of pine forest. We are walking distance from the resort ski and boarding hill. The resort buffet is super! We have the only outdoor heated pool open year around! This is an amazing value.
