The Granlibakken’s secluded forest gives guests the chance to feel the natural quiet of the Sierra Nevada Mountains while being only minutes from dining and shopping at Lake Tahoe. The property is big -- 74 acres -- with many buildings scattered about, so guests should be prepared to do a fair bit of walking to get from rooms to the main hotel or heated pool.

The Granlibakken featuring many restaurants and shops. Lake Tahoe is divided across California and Nevada, with 70 percent in California. Because of this, Tahoe is generally spoken of as two distinct areas, North and South Lake Tahoe.

When traveling to the area there are some things to keep in mind: The elevation of the lake is more than 6,000 feet, and the ski resorts surrounding the lake have runs that begin at 10,000 feet. Be careful when engaging in physical activity before acclimating, which usually takes a couple days, as the thin air means the body will need to work harder.
