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!
