Our second stay here - both times for a silent retreat with Adyashanti. The grounds and facility is lovely - simple, rustic, very clean and so peaceful. We love the way many rooms back up against the forest and how much of the decor compliments the natural ambience. We love all the forest creatures, especially the bears... and the forest...

This was my second time at Granlibakken. The first time was in 2015 then again in May 2017. What makes this place special is the STAFF, the food , and the land itself. I agree that the decore is somewhat dated and old and some things show it. But if something breaks or needs done, it will be done within...

When I first arrived my room had new linens and pillows but everything else looked it was from the 70's-80's. Within 24 hours that no longer mattered.

Clean quiet rooms. Beautiful venue for the marriage ceremony, and reception. Delicious variety of food, and fresh fruit. Both at the reception, and for breakfast buffet. Helpful front desk. Room to room communication was an issue, and cell phone reception was spotty inside the lodge.

This is a great place. We really enjoyed it. Great location, snow activities, and breakfast. We will be returning for the summer activities and future snow trips. Highly recommend this place. It is an older place so rooms are not new (not the room we were in anyhow) but it was clean and comfortable.
