“Great cabin getaway in Lake Tahoe area!”
Reviewed January 7, 2011

I just stayed at an old greenwood cabin over the new year's holiday and it was wonderful. Very spacious and lovely decorations. The gourmet kitchen was great and made cooking fun and even a little elegant.

The cabins are an easy drive from the Reno airport (about half hour) and very close to Northstar skiing (about 10 minutes).

The staff was also very friendly, but the accommodations really 'speak' for themselves.

It was a great getaway!!

OK fellow travelers here's the "411" on Old Greenwood. We rented a beautiful home on the 11th fairway of the golf course with a very nice outdoor living area which we enjoyed each day. Rented through VRBO.com and got a great price. The resort is very clean and casual with a very helpful and professional staff. The resort went backrupt in Feb. 2010 but it is not noticeable because the grounds are well maintained. There is a guard house at the entrance to the resort but it is not "maned".

The Pavilion area is nice but not extravagant. The small shop is well stocked with food essentials, tee shirts & sweatshirts and a nice selection of wines. Very expensive as you might imagine but available and convenient. The workout room is large and well maintained with all types of machines and cardio equipment. No waiting at any time. The Spa was small with a nice waiting area (The Sanctuary) and four massage rooms. The massages were great. Call 24 hours in advance. Men's locker room was great with nice lockers, great towels, great steam room and toiletries if needed. Two pools outside....main pool was busy with families and children but very well maintained. The Adult Pool (18 years old and over) was perfect with a nice lap pool, great chairs and umbrellas, drinking water stations and very quiet. A hot tub is available at each pool. The Adult Pool hot tob was great. The Safeway in Truckee has a great wine selection, there is also a wine shop in the same shopping complex. Be sure and get a Safeway Club Card since some of the savings can be $10 a bottle. Just apply at the counter and they will give you a temporary card to use immediately.

Golf Course,,,be prepared for a $185 greens fee. A typical Nicklaus track with difficult greens, multiple greenside bunkers and lots of fairway bunkers. Four sets of tees to choose from. Fantastic scenery and almost perfect conditions. Well worth the greens fee....once. Did not play Gray's Crossing but it looked very nice and a little easier. Same greens fee.

Runners & Walkers Tip....find the 11th green on the golf course. Just behind the 11th green is the golf course maintanience buildings. Adjacent to these buildings you'll see a sign that states "#1 Bike Path" with a arrow. Follow that arrow and it will take under I-80 then it splits on the other side. Go left and that will take you into Gray's Crossing development, go right and it's a beautiful paved path out into the wilderness....incredible!! For those "Flatlanders" be prepared for the 6,200 feet above sea level.

Overall this resort is terrific. I highly recommend this to families and those that are looking for peace, quiet and complete relaxation. Great place...can't wait to go back next summer.

We made our annual pilmigrage to Old Greenwdood last week. My kids are 6 and 7 now and just a perfect age for this place. I can't believe there aren't more reviews of this place. It's simply an awesome place for a summer trip with the family. We rented a 6,000 sq foot "cabin" through VRBO.com and easily fit 3 families into the house. Had a great time roaming the neighborhood, kids searching for golf balls, swimming/sunning at the pool, etc.... Also, make your way to THE lake and eat at the Tahoe Mountain Club resturant, Wild Goose, which is awesome too! It's only 15 minutes away with outdoor dining overlooking Lake Tahoe. The kids went kid's club at the OG pavillion, that night, and they had a great time. I look forward to our next trip to OG!

We actually stayed in a custom cabin within the community, but were able to use all the Old Greenwood resort amenities for a rental fee ($250 per week) for all of us who stayed in the cabin (a total of 10 of us). The Pavilion is very nice. We all had dinner at the restaurant, my wife and her sister had a spa treatment (which they said was amazing) and my kids enjoyed the kids room and the spa (which they keep nice and warm after skiing). Even though we didn't stay in the townhomes that they rent (which prices are way higher) we were able to take advantage of the FREE shuttle that took all of us from the cabin we were staying at to Northstar ski resort, and they picked us up and brought us back to the cabin later that day. I've heard Old Greenwood is amazing during the summer (the pool and golf course), but we still had an amazing time here. We found the cabin we rented on craigslist and were extremely satisfied with the cabin and our stay. I think the website is crownpointpm .com. All in all...Highly recommend Old Greenwood.

We spent a week at Old Greenwood last summer after spending a few days with friends the year before. It is the premiere Tahoe destination in my opinion. Summer days at Old Greenwood are incredible. I would hit the gym every morning. It's a first class gym with top quality equipment. We then would hike or bike a little bit. We would then hit the pool by 11:00ish. The pool area is a dreamland for kids... and adults. Just a great place to spend the day. At night you can leave the kids at the child's center or hang out at your cabin. Just an incredible place. Oh ya, and the golf course isn't so bad either! I highl recommend this place.

We are actually still here at Old Greenwood. We've been snowed in here and rained in here a few days out of our week here (we are here on a fractional trade) and we are sooo impressed by this place. First of all, the service is top-notch. Winter is their slower season but this place is still well-staffed. They cleared out our driveway daily (when needed) and were on top of moving snow so we could all get in and out of the property. The Pavillion (their lodge) was great. They have a heated pool which we used and jacuzzi. Everyone here was so friendly and very helpful. We travel a lot and don't get this kind of service in Mexico. This was like being at the Four Seasons. Our Townhome was a 3 bedroom, 4 bathroom with a 2 car garage. This place was HUGE. There was only three of us and we didn't even go upstairs. Few fireplaces in the rooms which we used a lot. I can't say enough about this place. We are told by everyone here that this place rocks in the summer. It has a Jack Nicklaus golf course and so much to do with the kids. The other benefit we had was going to Northstar to board you get to use the Alpine Club (they are a ski valet) where you can lounge and you have to be a member to get into. You can keep your gear here overnight and relax here when you are done on the mountain. Also, the member card gets you to Schaeffer's Camp mid mountain which is a MUST. Again, high end but not stuffy. You take off your boots and put on slippers, they even have little slippers for kids of all ages. The service here was great. The guys at Alpine, Bruce & Guy treated us all like kings. Their Lodge has a great fitness center with daily classes, a restaurant and a spa. Also, kids room with games, pool table and computers. Also, free internet in your home/villa. Lots of organized activities (snowshoeing, snowmobiling, kids movie night, kids camp, etc.)

I saw a review of Old Greenwood on this site complaining about service and cleanliness, and could not disagree more. We have had a fractional since last year, and have stayed there 4 times. Every time the staff was extremely friendly and helpful, service at the pavillion restaurant area was great, and the cabin we stayed in was clean and beautiful. These are not your typical beat-up or run-down cabins you quite frequently find in the Tahoe area; they are luxurious and if all you wanted to do, was sit around and look out your window, you wouldn't be happier. We have not used the childcare (our kids are 12 and 15), but find it hard to believe staff members are throwing children from buses as stated in the other review . . .. I am not even really a golfer (yet), but would recommend Old Greenwood to anyone who is interested in a high quality Tahoe resort experience.
