Lake Forest Ky
1 – The Lake Forest Louisville Ky community is deed-restricted.
Some may see this as a disadvantage because that means there is a Home Owner’s Association with an annual fee. However, it can also be a big perk because it also means you will enjoy added amenities that other neighborhoods do not. For instance, you will enjoy beautifully landscaped grounds, snow removal, trash removal, automatic irrigation and lawn mowing service. Plus, you become a member of the local country club. These communities retain their value and are more desirable to potential buyers.
2 – You enjoy full access to the Lake Forest Country Club.
Many people want to live in the community just to gain access to Lake Forest’s championship golf course designed by Arnold Palmer. In addition to golfing, members can enjoy the club swimming pool, tennis courts, fitness center and clubhouse with panoramic views.

Families enjoy living in Lake Forest for the sense of community. There are Red Cross babysitting courses and swim competitions for teens, annual Easter Egg Hunts and visits from Santa for younger children, as well as New Years Eve galas and Kentucky Bourbon tastings for adults. Comedy shows, financial seminars, summer block parties, and wine tasting events are all specially planned to foster a sense of togetherness among neighbors.
