About Jean

We built our beautiful vacation get away. We have built hundreds of custom homes in California for over 25 years and we build this outstanding home which we are very proud of! It has many one of a kind custom features, like the rolled iron cooktop hood, and the hand pounded iron balastrades on the staircase. The flagstone floors that run throughout the inside and the outside of the house bringing the feeling of the beautiful outdoors inside making the home a very special place. The kitchen is the ultimate kitchen for entertaining and bringing families and friends together.

Jean purchased this estate in 2008

Why Jean chose Lake Tahoe North Shore

The front of the house faces the Northstar ski runs as well as the natural beauty of undeveloped land. Out the back you can see the beautiful golf course, it is quite and a great place to relax. Great place to ride bikes, take walks, quite and relaxing. The golf course is beautiful! and we overlook one of the golf courses many water features. If you want to be around people as well as get a good workout the Pavillion is the place to go, well appointed and nicely done.

What makes this estate unique

Fresh Air! Beautiful surroundings, nice neighborhood, you can walk or bike to the Pavillion. Pinewood lodge features, alder woodwork and cabinets, hickory and flagstone floors, outdoor fireplace, and a large lodge size fireplace in the greatroom. The lodge was named after the beautiful large pine trees that surround the lodge. Too many custom and one of a kind features to mention.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a fabulous week in the Lake Tahoe area, but best of all was the house!! We expected it to be nice (from the online pictures), but it far exceeded our expectations. It was so spacious and spotlessly clean; it had every amenity imaginable, we enjoyed the bikes so much. The location and view were the best; we checked out Northstar, Squaw Valley, and Lake Tahoe communities and clearly liked Old Greenwood the best. We all (3 generations) loved the Club and used most of its varied facilities.

I could go on about how pleased we were. Thank you for providing such a spectacular home for the 11 of us to relax and enjoy the area.

Great Large Home

  • 5 of 5

We rented the home in July 2014 and were very happy with the amount of space and the size of the kitchen. For anyone who has not stayed at Old Greenwood we would seriously recommend it. The pools, workout, and spa areas are great. We were especially impressed with the service in the kids play area.

Our family of 11, grandparents to a new-born baby had a wonderful time here. There was plenty of space, everyone was happy and we cooked some great meals here! This was our first time to Old Greenwood and we would certainly recommend it to our friends. The early autumn was gorgeous there!

Fantastic Place

  • 5 of 5

We had a brief golf outing and it was a great place to stay. House was fabulous. Rooms were clean and spacious. Bathrooms were large. Kitchen was outstanding with plenty of room to eat and cook. Spent most of the time outside on the patio, which was large enough to handle our party. Want to make this a yearly trip. Simple check in instructions, simple check out instructions.

Excellent ski vacation

We had an excellent Ski vacation at this lovely home. We had a mix of adults and children and everyone had a great time. Loved the large, open kitchen. Would highly recommend. The owners were helpful and responsive.

Summer month with family

  • 5 of 5

this is a great home. our family stayed there for a month and we couldn't be happier. we didn't want to leave when the trip was ending. The home has an amazing kitchen, wonderful layout, nice location in Old Greenwood. the community was excellent, as we enjoyed almost daily golfing (or for the kids, looking for golf balls!), tennis, pool, and ate many times at the Pavilion.

Recommend as a great place for a golf trip, family vacation, getaway, etc..

Poor condition

  • 1 of 5

We've used VRBO many times and have stayed at homes in Old Greenwood on numerous occasions. This is a nice house like the rest in the community. But it's not in good shape, hasn't been maintained, and is poorly supplied.

Beds are terrible. Not sure what's going on. Maybe cheap mattresses? The crunching noise is so loud as you move it wakes you up. We could also hear people moving in their beds in other rooms.

Toilets were hard to flush and one of them wouldn't stroll running the entire time.

Most dishes, utensils, pots and pans were dirty and had to be washed. And even when clean they were low quality and old and very worn. Scratched pans, old plastic cups and bowls, mismatched glasses. I would never use any of them by choice, but that's all they had. This part was very disappointing.

Sheets on one bed were dirty. Had to wash them on arrival.

Patio furniture was cheap and old and very dirty. Ha add to clean the entire patio on arrival.

No dish towels, no extra TP, napkins, or paper towels.

Old spices and cooking oil and food in the cupboards. Totally useless, expired and old.

We were very disappointed in this property. Would not stay there again.

Owner's Response: Dan: I was very surprised about your review, as I try very hard to ensure that our property is in excellent shape for renters. I was surprised that you found the place in poor condition and I have taken care to speak to the management company so that this doesn't happen again. I want to apologize as I am very prideful in making sure that anyone staying at our home has a wonderful experience.
