Fodor's Expert Review Granlibakken Tahoe

725 Granlibakken Rd., Tahoe City, California, 96145, USA

A condo community with its own snow-play area in winter, this secluded 74-acre resort's name means "a hillside sheltered by fir trees" in Norwegian—adventure fitness, and wellness activities are a key focus. There's an outdoor adventure park with a treetop rope course, along with tennis, hiking on a private nature trail or the nearby Tahoe Rim Trail, swimming in the heated pool, working out on a par course, yoga, and spa treatments. Lodging options range from studios and one-bedroom condos to town houses, all with maid service and good Wi-Fi ; some accommodations have full kitchens, fireplaces, or both. The room rate includes a full buffet breakfast, and outdoor and wellness packages are offered throughout the year.
