The townhouse units range in size 1, 2, and 3 bedrooms. Each bedroom will have its own private bathroom and is locked off so only the registered guest of that assigned bedroom has access to the room. Each townhouse bedroom is designed to replicate the same amenities as a standard hotel room (private bath, TV, in room coffee station, etc.). The occupants of the townhouse will then share the common living space with their housemates (i.e. full size kitchen, living room, dining room). 

Deluxe Package: Consists of Lodge bedrooms and Studio apartments. SOLD OUT!

The spacious Studio provides warmth and comfort that Granlibakken is known for. Rooms can accommodate up to four people. Bedding includes one of the following:

  • king

Several of these rooms offer a sofa sleeper in the living room. Studios also feature:

  • dining area for four
  • fully equipped kitchen
  • comfortable sitting area with a fireplace
  • private balcony

The studio apartments are open floor plans with a full kitchen, living room and patio sitting area. The sleeping area will also be in the open floorplan.

  • king

  • two double beds
  • two queen beds

 These rooms are located on the outskirts of the resort with wooded views. This room is almost double the size of our standard bedroom with a much larger bathroom, mini fridges and microwaves.

Student Dorm Room Package

In order to make the conference as affordable as possible (in essence, approx. $30/night above the required resort fees and food), dorm style accommodations are available for students registered for the conference. Each room will accommodate 4-8 students, will have its own private bath, TV, and in room coffee station. The bed configurations vary room to room, with the bedding consisting of mainly bunk beds.

You may request a specific type of room when making reservations, as well as requesting to share a Townhouse with multiple groups of attendees, by putting this information in the “Special Requests” section of the Grandlibakken registration form. The Conference Committee will attempt to accommodate these requests as they are able
