Granlibakken is a great resort and near lots of fun things to do. We were there for the weekend with our two young children and walked to Tahoe City and threw rocks in the Truckee River, swam in the pool each day, and our oldest (age 6) even did the ropes course on site. We weren't far at all from Donner Pass and were still able to get to the snow easily, even this late in the season.
We were comfortable in the condo with just the 4 of us - the Murphy bed is in the living/dining area, so if you have 6 people, you will definitely need to be comfortable with each other! The beds and comforters are very comfortable, the towels were fluffy, and the kids had a little room to color and play with Legos while we relaxed. The kitchen is small but fully equipped and open to the living room area, so we could cook and socialize.
You might want to check with the main Granlibakken resort before you choose a date to see what kind of groups or conference they might be hosting - we happened to be there the same time as two busloads of middle school students and had to deal with them being very noisy just outside our window every time they went to eat in the main lodge. However, we still really enjoyed ourselves and the space - just something to consider when choosing a date.

Cecily was a great host! Responsive and clear. The place was exactly what my group of 8 was looking for. Close to Tahoe city and with an awesome outdoor hot tub and heated pool. Definitely recommend this place for your next Tahoe trip.
Cecily's place was excellent all around. 5 stars!! We arrived from San Francisco late after midnight and there is a 24-hour attendant available for very speedy check-in. Abundant parking is located right next to the unit as well. The condo was clean, spacious and comfortable and bed arrangements were perfect for our party of 3. Of course the fire is a nice touch and a must for us now on all of our future ski rental visits :)
The location is perfect less than 2 miles away from Tahoe City and about a 10-15 minute drive to the slopes at Squaw and Alpine. We'd definitely consider Cecily's place again for our future visits to Tahoe.
Cecily's place was perfect! We planned a long ski weekend and everything was just as advertised. Communication prior to our arrival was as expected and we settled right in. The fireplace was a nice touch and the location is perfect. There's actually a lot to do right on the premises. A short drive takes you to Squaw, Alpine, Homewood and Tahoe City.
Cecily's place helped our group have the perfect Airbnb experience. The kitchen was completely stocked with glasses, plates, spices and everything we needed to cook meals as a group. Hot tub, sauna; I felt like a boss. The murphy bed was a work of spatial genius, can't wait to come back!
I've stayed here twice already and it was great both times. I will probably continue to stay here because it's super easy to get in and out, it's only 15 min to Squaw, has a hot tub, internet, what more can you ask for? And Cecily is super easy to communicate with, she is always really prompt in returning messages. If your goal is to be on the slopes all day and want somewhere nice to come home and crash, this place is awesome on all accounts.
Cecily was a great host and answered all of my questions quickly via Airbnb messages. Her condo is very comfortable for up to six people. Eight might be a *bit* cramped but I think you could still pull it off.
Definitely take some time and visit the hot tub and pool. It's a lot of fun.
Make sure you bring your own cooking oil and spices if you want to make food.
Cecily was great to rent from. Everything was ready on our arrival and she was very responsive via e-mail. The room worked great for us, we were in the B side which is similar to a hotel room. The breakfast buffet was very good. Would definitively stay here again, its very close to Tahoe City.
Please was clean and mostly as described. Fireplace and murphy bed were great and kitchen had everything you needed! Great use of space and a nice deck with grill as well. Only minor thing to note was that there was no washer or dryer in the unit, although I believe there was a coin operated one somewhere in the building.
What a great guest. Cecily was awesome! Clean, Communicative, Respectful and Friendly. Highly recommended. Always fun to have another host stay at my place :)
