We went to Old Greenwood for a family reunion this summer. Tahoe is beautiful in the summer. It's got a quiet, lazy and peaceful vibe to it different from the snowy winters, which is also beautiful.
Someone in the family has a fractional ownership - and loves the place so much that we all ended up there. Each family rented their own townhome or villa.
We loved that each townhome has its own driveway and parking garage. They actually are built to feel like you're in your own separate house. The proximity of other property to each other is well spaced, so it didn't feel cluttered at all. We stayed in a three bedroom 3 bedroom, 3 1/2 bath townhome. We loved the high ceilings, the high end kitchen appliances and materials. It's beautifully decorated to match the mountain theme. We had a great view of a natural pond off the golf course. Apparently it's a good place to go fly-fishing in the morning.
I agree with another post about how easy it is to get to. It's right off of the I-80 just past downtown Truckee. Once you exit, you go down a small street and you're immediately thrust into a feeling of privacy and seclusion. They developed this area and maintained its natural setting.
Big kudos for the water feature for kids and the swimming pools. The largest pool is a zero entry swimming pool meaning that it has a gradual entry. GREAT for young kids! We loved that and more importantly so did our toddler son. We also loved the water slide. It landed you in shallow water.
Food and service was decent at the pool. It had nice clean bathrooms and showers. Towels were readily available. We loved that it wasn't that crowded there. Much better than staying in a hotel. Of course weekends are much busier - Monday was even more quiet and much more pleasant.
Old Greenwood also has a spa and the gym looked great. They have some exercise classes that you can take. It's a beautiful resort and we never even left while we were there. Looks like we will be here again. It's a great place for families and it's close to everything!
