Granlibakken Conference Center

Granlibakken picture 2014Join us for the 59th Annual Summer Granlibakken Retreat this year. Enjoy 75 acres in a peaceful, beautiful setting of the Sierra Mountains just minutes from nearby Lake Tahoe! Choose from several free recreational opportunities including hiking and biking trails, tennis courts, swimming pool, and gym, or just relax in the sauna or hot tub. Four main lodging types are available: Bedroom Units, Townhouses, Studios, and the Executive Lodge, all of which include free wireless Internet access, fireplace, and TV. Dine from diverse sumptuous menus created by executive chef Ron Eber, serving Granlibakken guests for over 25 years. Bring your family with you because there’s lots to do nearby including the Tahoe Treetop Adventure Park (additional cost and reservations required) which has a zipline for kids, and a 9-hole, Par 3 golf course just a few minutes away. Go to Granlibakken.com and click on "Things to do" at the top to view all the amenities.
