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.

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 ?

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.
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.
This was a delightful place to spend a beautiful fall week in Tahoe. The condo was much brighter and better furnished than I expected from the pictures. The location was ideal for hiking and even a couple of geocaches close by. Highly recommend the Treetop Adventure if you are physically able, it is located on site at the resort. We had a great time sitting by the fire, cooking burgers on the grill, and walking the short distance to the heated pool and hot tub. Looking forward to returning.
We had a wonderful stay at this condo. Totally stocked with everything you could possibly need. Very clean and plenty of space for us and our two small dogs but would fit many more guests. The grounds are very nice with great hiking trails everywhere. Short walk down to the lake or the Truckee river and quick drive to downtown Tahoe City with many great restaurants and things to do. Our favorite thing was how quiet it was with only the birds singing and the bees buzzing in the morning we had such a wonderful relaxing stay.
Great location and pool area was great for our little ones! Would stay again!
We had a great week at the Squirrel Away condo in Tahoe. Its just up the street from the pool, and only a few minutes drive to the Lake, hiking trails and the Truckee River. The condo was clean, comfortable and was really well stocked with supplies - especially the kitchen (which I rarely find to be true in rental properties). We hope to return in winter so we can do some sledding.
The accommodation was great for we needed. We were attending a conference at the Granlibakken but their rooms were all booked out.
Fortunately we found this condo. It was ideal as situated within the Granlibakken grounds. The condo's kitchen looked to be well stocked (although we didnt actually use it on this occasion).
We would definitely stay again when we next attend the same conference.
We very much enjoyed our stay at this condo, which was fortunately available when we decided to visit Tahoe on short notice in early August.
The Squirlaway condo itself is very comfortable, has a personal touch to it and is well-equipped. We were unfamiliar with the Granlibakken Resort but it has a quiet and secluded feel while still being just a short drive from the heart of Tahoe City. We also like the specific location of this condo within the resort property as it bordered woods and was near the pool.
We found this to be an ideal place to embark on all our Tahoe weekend activities. In addition, pet friendly is always a big plus to us. This is a property we would definitely book again on a future visit.
This is a spectacular, pastoral, quiet setting on the edge of a resort in the North Lake Tahoe (Tahoe City) area. Close enough to walk to year-round heated pool/spa but isolated from any noise. Walk or bike to town and Lake Tahoe. Onsite Tennis, day spa, small ski hill and Tree Top Adventure Park. Conference facilities available onsite. Our guests have access to typical resort activities, bar, restaurant etc. See Granlibakken resort website for more details.
