“Loved the spacious, clean villa”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2013

We stayed in a 3-BR villa and loved it. The large back patio facing the driving range and large hot tub were a great place to relax. The villa had large, comfortable rooms and tons of closet space. Our only small complaint would be that it was quite dark; even the existing lights seemed to be fitted with low-wattage bulbs which seemed kind of odd. But small complaint; overall the place was excellent. One night we had problems working the DVD player and within minutes a friendly person from property management was at our door to help us. The pool and fitness center is just across the street from the villas, and the workout facilities were large and only had a handful of people using them no matter what time of day I showed up. The family pool was crowded and loud with screaming kids when we were there, but there was also an adult pool which seemed to only have 2-3 people using it during our entire stay. A poolside restaurant was also a nice and convenient amenity. Overall this place isn't cheap, but I left feeling like I got what I paid for.

I highly recommend Old Greenwood as a perfect place for rest and relaxation in the mountains. The resort is located outside of Truckee, away of the Tahoe/Truckee tourist crowds. The resort has all modern conveniences in its cabins and townhouses, but set on an idyllic, tree-filled mountain property - including a beautiful golf-course. The clubhouse has pools, spas and children's game room. You won't regret choosing this location for your next mountain vacation.

Hi SunTravel-
Thanks for taking the time to submit a review & we're so pleased you enjoyed Old Greenwood. Let me know if I can ever be of service. And, might I suggest trying our sister property, The Village at Northstar, sometime. These studio to four-bedroom residences also offer all the modern conveniences you like in an alpine village setting-- where you can walk to skating, dining, shopping &, of course, skiing.

We just returned from our 8th summer week at Old Greenwood. This resort has it all. There is no reason to leave. The cabins are 1st class with all bedrooms having there own baths. pool table in the loft and hot tub on the deck looking out at the golf course. There is a world class
golf experience. The activities pavilion has a large gym with great equipment and classes for all
interests. There is a spa to indulge yourself. While you are working out the kids can go to the
activities room or crafts room. They love it! There are two pools, one for families, with a slide.
and one for adults. Plenty of room for all.
We have had a shared ownership cabin here for 8 years and we love it.

Thank you very much for taking the time to provide a review for your stay in our cabins at Old Greenwood! I totally agree with you about the views, my favorite is the view from the 16th hole of the Old Greenwood golf course. We hope to see you back soon!

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!

Thank you for taking the time to review the townhomes at Old Greenwood! I am happy to hear that your family had a fantastic reunion and that you were able to enjoy the residence itself as well as many of the facilities that are available at Old Greenwood. I say it quite often, but Old Greenwood is a special, gathering place for friends and families and I truly believe that your review is just another testament to that. I hope to see your entire extended family back at Old Greenwood soon but if it's just you and your immediate family, that would be wonderful as well.

My family, extended family, and friends from all over the country have been coming up to OG for over 5 yrs now and I wanted to write a review because this place is fantastic, and the staff deserves kudos for sure!
They have truly thought of everything when they built this place.
To start off, the resort is very easy to get to and it is close to downtown Truckee, shopping, and restaurants. It is also a 10 minute drive to Northstar, 40 minutes to Reno airport and if you want to gamble you can hit the Hyatt at King's Beach about 35 minutes away. Our family usually comes during ski season but summertime is fantastic too. The cabins are very nice, great kitchen, king size beds, fireplaces etc.
They have 3 great swimming pools, one for the kiddies, a community pool with a water slide and lifeguards on duty, and a lap pool in a more secluded area if you want to chillax.
They have waiters at poolside bringing you drinks and food, and if you want to eat inside they have a very cool little cafe inside the pavilion.
They also have great tennis courts, and you can sign up for a lesson ( my 10 year old son took a group lesson and loved it) The instructor was a very upbeat, enthusiastic lady who was great with the kids. I don't golf but my Father in law is an avid golfer and said the course is "first rate".
If you have kids , they also have a" kids club" in the pavilion with a game room, and computers and a pool table, and they also offer "movie night"(dinner included) , so you and you're husband can drop off the kids and go out to dinner and they take care of everything else. They also have a smaller "kids club" for the younger kids with an attached playground. There is also a little store in the pavilion if you need to pick up some groceries but don't feel like driving into town. They also have a shuttle service that runs daily to Northstar if you don't want to drive. The Alpine Club, Schaffer's camp and the Wild goose are just some of the things that are so fantastic about OG, it is really hard to beat!
OG also has a GREAT gym and spa and the ladies locker room has a wonderful steam room. I will tell you that a few of the lockers were not working but they had others that were so it wasn't a big deal.
The staff at the front desk are friendly, competent and helpful. The maintenance staff has ALWAYS been great as well, if anything was broken or not working properly they are on it. Every year we have 2 full cabins full of friends coming to visit, simply because OLD GREENWOOD is a beautiful place with so many great amenities, a stellar staff and a top notch vacation experience!
