We had 80 cousins, aunts and uncles converge on Granlibakken this past July. We were scattered all over the place with my small family holed up in a townhouse. The rest stayed in a variety of lodges and dorms and from what I could tell, no one was unhappy. In fact, it was almost unanimous to return there in another two years.
In the morning we would converge on the Garden Deck for the tasty breakfast provided by the resort. Then we'd hang out at the Aspen/Alder Rooms for cards, other games and gossip. These rooms flank a very nice kitchen where each family would take turns making dinner and lunches were more informal, DIY cafeteria style. There were also drop-down video screens where some kids got to watch movies and it was almost like going to the theater. It worked out great!
The other main activity at the resort was the pool. It isn't very big but the kids liked it. The overall condition of the resort was OK. Our townhouse was a little dated with some of the cheap furniture missing it's plastic edge-banding. It didn't seem to bother us much - we weren't there to stay inside and inspect the furnishings. The beds were comfy, the people were nice, the breakfast was good, and the weather was perfect. I'm looking forward to our next reunion.
