More than just a great meal, Granlibakken offers a Thanksgiving tradition that celebrates family and friends with a hearty holiday feast around the dinner table and boundless opportunities to work up an appetite or work off the satisfying dinner.
Served family-style, Granlibakken’s Thanksgiving dinner includes all the homemade favorites: roasted turkey carved table side, mashed potatoes, stuffing, buttered spaghetti squash, candied yams, cranberry sauce, pumpkin pie and additional desserts. Keeping its European roots and hospitality in mind, the resort will also wrap any leftovers for turkey sandwiches the next day. Vegetarian options are also available.
Thanksgiving lodging packages for four start at $150 per person, per night and include the holiday dinner and hot breakfast buffet.
Guests can choose any lodging from a standard room with fireplace to a five bedroom townhome. Prices vary with room type. Additional lodging options include rustic lodge rooms, studios and condos from one to five-bedrooms.
If you’re not a guest but want to enjoy a traditional Thanksgiving dinner with leftovers the cost is $40 and $20 for children.
Guests can work up an appetite outdoors at Granlibakken’s Treetop Adventure Park, recently voted No. 1 Tahoe Activity by TripAdvisor.com. Set 30 feet off the ground, the ropes course and zip line will be opened Thanksgiving (weather permitting) and throughout the winter season on Saturdays, Sundays and holidays. Fully harnessed guests can zip, climb, walk and maneuver their way through a number of obstacles, each with varying degrees of skills and challenges.
The Treetop Adventure Park reflects the resort’s passion toward outdoor enjoyment by complementing on-site amenities including cross country and snowshoe trails, Tahoe’s original ski hill, heated outdoor pool, hot tub, sauna and a full-service spa – all surrounded by 74 acres of trees in a quiet valley setting.
Granlibakken also hosts other holiday events as well. The Christmas Eve Torchlight Parade includes a visit from Santa with gifts, cookies and hot chocolate for the kids, a popular Christmas buffet dinner and New Year’s Eve party for guests.
