Leave your laptop at home and reunite at Granlibakken with friends and family

Tuesday, September 10th, 2013

Connecting with family and friends has been made easier over the years thanks to social media. But there’s more than a few things websites cannot do.

Laptops cannot hug or handshake, raise a glass to propose a toast, race down a mountain on a pair of skis or zip through a challenging obstacle course set on platforms above the trees.

Sure Facebook is an important tool but nothing beats being in a room full of family and friends, sharing details and memories that usually get overlooked in our written thoughts. There’s only one true way to engage in conversation and laughter and that’s being right in the center of it, side by side and face to face.

Get your family together for a reunion at Granlibakken!

Get your family together for a reunion at Granlibakken!

Granlibakken makes it easy for you to get your extended family, high school class or college chums together for some quality catch up time. Spacious lodging, an abundance of activities and delicious meals all figure into planning a reunion and all are available at Granlibakken Conference Center and Lodge making it an ideal place for your reunion plans.

With 74 secluded acres of onsite play area, the resort is designed for large groups and offers packages to accommodate families and friends of 4 to 400. Granlibakken offers spectacular lodging options, and plenty of onsite amenities, including a spa, onsite yoga, a luxurious pool, hot tub and sauna, tennis courts, hiking and biking trails, beach combing or boating and nearby golf courses.

A favorite onsite activity among family and friends is Granlibakken’s Treetop Adventure Park. Made up of a series of courses linking tree platform to tree platform with a variety of bridges and zip lines, those up to the challenge can ascend to a initial tree platform and then travel through the forest on an aerial trek anywhere from 15 to 50 feet in the air.

So whether it’s the youngest of tykes in the family tree or your college chums with competitive edges, the adventure park is an ideal place to gather, test skills and have some camaraderie in the name and spirit of togetherness.

This winter you and your extended family can can ski all day at nearby resorts, on-site at Granlibakken’s own ski hill or you can go sledding and then head into the woods on cross country skis and snowshoes. Return to the lodge from your day’s adventure to a nice banquet dinner, with dancing, entertainment and memories made for a lifetime.

Where do you plan to spend your next college or family reunion?

Day at the Spa

Thursday, September 8th, 2011

Tahoe’s Lighthouse Day Spa second location is now open at Granlibakken Resort and Conference Center at the bucolic family resort near Tahoe City. I had the luxury to take my better half to Granlibakken for a weekend retreat – or staycation. On Sunday of our visit we started the day with a delicious hearty breakfast at the resort with eggs benny, sausage, cinnamon toast and fresh fruit. We went for a morning bike ride and then came back to relax and pamper ourselves.

I had the foot massage, scrub and pedicure. My feet looked brand new, felt so soft and the nail polish was a complementary color for my skin tone. Sitting there with the nail manicurist, talking about life while starring at the beautiful hillsides of the quaint Norwegian resort I couldn’t think of a better way to spend the day.

              

Meanwhile, my boyfriend received the first professional massage of his life. After 45 minutes of avoiding drooling and falling asleep on the massage table he came out of the room grinning ear to ear and was the most relaxed rejuvenated I’ve ever seen him. He does carpentry and works hard long hours and needless to say he had muscles that he didn’t know were tense and sore. He exclaimed he’s hooked and wants a massage every week!

The new location boasts three treatment rooms and a number of wellness packages aimed at revitalization and relaxation, including customized and deep tissue massage, hot stone therapy, pre-natal, reiki healing and coming soon couples massages.

Lighthouse Day Spa opened its original location in Tahoe City in 1992 and enjoys a reputation of holistic massage therapy and treatments with a certified staff. Body therapy includes purifying and muscle-soothing body wraps, sinus and head clarifying treatments, chakra therapy and reflexology. Lighthouse Day Spa also offers refresher, clarifying and restorative facial skin therapies, nail care and body waxing.

Granlibakken offers a variety of Wellness packages including Blissful Retreat, a 60 minute sinus and head clarifying hot stone massage; Tahoe Sampler, a 30 minute massage, facial and bodywrap; Renewal, a 60 minute massage, facial, manicure and pedicure; Holistic Day Spa with Ayurveda, alternative medicine, consultation, chakra therapy and sinus and head clarifying or the
