This is a great family oriented place with a friendly staff. They have two different pools and a playground for the kids to play at.

Thank you for your review of our community! We hope you continue to call Lake Forest home!


So thankful to have such a beautiful apartment at such a convenient location! Perfect set up for my son and I! The porch has been so amazing to view the change in seasons. Moving can be stressful BUT this place made my move easy as pie :) Definitely recommend all my friends to check this place out! Thank you Lake Forest for making me feel so at home :)

We've only been here a month and can't wait to get out of here. We weren't able to check Lake Forest out before we moved here as we were moving from out of state. The photos on their website are very deceiving. EVERYTHING is outdated. The kitchen has very little cabinet space. The main bathroom, well the tub and shower area are very small and again not updated. All of the closets have metal doors. The one in the 2nd bathroom is rusty. There are 2 outside pools but the one closest to my unit is FULL of algae and closed. The other one is starting to get algae in it as I went to it to swim and could feel it on my feet and see it. The units do not come with microwaves and there is not a business area or gym here. The carport is $20.00 extra a month. To have a 6 month lease is $75.00 extra. The big patios are nice.The office manager is very hard to get along with and you are lied to by staff. If you want things fixed, pay outrageous rent, have a large patio, swimming pools you can't, non updated apartment, and a nature walk then this is the place for you, otherwise STAY AWAY! !!

I love my home. Why do I call it a home? Because a home to me is, me knowing most of my neighbors, or having coffee every morning with the little old lady next door, or the staff having personal interest in making you happy and safe, or its the beautiful pools we have, did you see I said POOLS! YEAH TWO POOLS AND A LAKE! Now I'm sorry but for the price I pay for this cute place and all the amenities you CANNOT find anywhere else, TRY ME??? Not only that but its clean, we can have dogs, we have a newsletter where we play games on the Facebook website to win cool stuff. I never did that anywhere else. They are updated and modern units. Oh did I forget to add CLEAN AND CUTE in there? This is my home. I can pay online, I can go kayaking, I can swim in pool, I can win stuff off there website, and the rent is very reasonable. Especially for the HUGE CLOSETS, any girl would go GAGA over these closets. Let's not forget about the huge rooms either. The two bedroom here looks like a condo! I know I'm forgetting hundreds of reasons why I love my little secret tucked in community but I love it here and I just want others to know. Julie
