About the property

3 Bedroom, 3 Bath Condo, Forest and Mountain Views, Spa, Heated Pool, All Year

Welcome to our cosy condo located in the spectacular Granlibakken Resort in Tahoe City, CA. 1 bedroom and bath on the main floor and 2 private bedrooms and 1 1/2 baths on the second floor.

Check our calendar for availability. Our townhouse is hiking distance from the center of Tahoe City, and about 1/2 mile directly to the lake. Easy access to hiking and water sports. 200 yards and you and your pup can wade or swim in the Tahoe river. It is that close! Pool, tennis and hiking are even closer!

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.

About Uli Theissen

We are business owners, living at the California west coast near Santa Cruz. We own two vacation getaways by beautiful, charming Tahoe City and love to stay there ourselves with friends and family. Tahoe is special to us, it transfers us from "rat race" to our beloved "Tahoe Time".

Uli Theissen purchased this condo in 2012

Why Uli Theissen chose Comstock Acres

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.

What makes this condo unique

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.

The townhouse and location were amazing.


* Easy to find and easy to access house (arrived at mid-night; so this was super important)

* Stayed during snow storm; while others were digging themselves out each morning, the resort made sure our walkway and driveway were clear so we had an easy and early start to the slopes.

* House is fully stocked and very clean. Loved that each room had a bathroom and the deck looked out to a wooded open area; very calming and warm.

* Mud Room - Loved it! Great place to put the kids gear without dragging it through the house.

* Location-Location-Location: This was just a few miles from great ski resorts plus you are in Tahoe City within 3 minutes. Tahoe City is awesome; great shops, yummy restaurants, grocery store options, and a cute movie theater.

* Resort Like Living: After a day of skiing we could grab a drink at the resort’s bar and a great dinner at the restaurant (Just 30 yrds from your front door), hop into a heated pool/spa/sauna (so awesome) (30 yrds from your front door), or get a massage (which I did, the spa was AMAZING and great price - they are open till 7pm - 25 yards from your front door).

* Owners: Owners were super easy to work with, really appreciated their complete explanation of everything.

* Extra bonuses: Washer and Dryer, tons of activities at the resort for all ages of kids, pet friendly (owners even provided a guide to great places to walk your dog), large bedrooms, located in a resort (little/no traffic) so the kids could go walk around and play in the snow, amazing sledding hill and beginner ski hill just 25 yards from the front door, super friendly staff.


* None (seriously - there was not a single draw back to this rental, it was that good)

We rent often in Tahoe, and this is now my favorite place. I love the place and look forward to coming in the summer when we can take advantage of the miles of hiking trails and the adventure fun!

Perfect winter vacation with the toddler and pup!

  • 5 of 5

Great location! Perfect little home close to ALL that’s needed for a Winter getaway! Will definitely come back for another stay! Loved accessibility and short distance to restaurants, sledding and tree top adventure! Really kicking ourselves for not doing! First timers to the snow and full family getaway with the in laws that was so relaxing and comfortable. Beds were very comfortable and everything we needed was there. Wish we stayed a couple more days. Really appreciated leniency on check out time (even though we left by noon) which had taken a lot of stress getting everything and everyone together for the drive home. Thank you so very much for letting us stay in your home! Xoxo

Great for our family!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay here. We are a family of six with kids aged 8 to 13. The condo was very comfortable for us with two kids in each upstairs bedroom and my husband and me in the downstairs master. Each bedroom has a bathroom which was great. I think the condo would be a little small for 8 people but you could make it work. The location is excellent - close to Alpine & Squaw and right up the street from Granlibakken sledding park. We also loved using the heated pool and hot tub at the resort. We’ve already booked our next stay here.

Conveniently situated condo perfect for a family with pets

  • 5 of 5

The location in Tahoe Coty is prime and within minutes of the best restaurants of skiing. The condo is cozy, yet spacious enough for 5-6 people. The added bonus for us was the dog friendly nature of the property and the amenities of the Granlibakken resort.

Second Verse Same as the First

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at the Squirlaway Condo and we were very happy with the experience once again. The condo itself is spacious, comfortable and well-maintained. We like the combination of proximity to Tahoe City and all the amenities of the Lake along with the pastoral setting of the Granlibakken property. We especially like how this condo is positioned adjacent to the forest for the views it offers and even more privacy .
