About Greg Cosso

I live and work in San Francisco and love spending time on the NorthShore of Lake Tahoe. When we're not using the condo, we enjoy renting it out to those who enjoy it as much as we do. We just ask that you treat it as your own.

Greg Cosso purchased this townhome in 2012

Why Greg Cosso chose Lake Forest

It's one of the best values in all of Lake Tahoe for 1 or up to a group of 8.

What makes this townhome unique

Lake front and private beach access, with its own pier, which includes an attendant who will set up your umbrella and chairs. It also includes three tennis courts with a half court basketball with a private swimming pool and adjacent large lawn area.

Additionally, there's a bocce ball court and a horseshoe pit. Bocce balls are provided in the condo, but horseshoes are provided by the Association – Please make sure when you are done playing that you hang up the horseshoes at the location provided to avoid unsupervised children playing with the horseshoes. Sign-up sheets for tennis, bocce ball and horseshoes have been installed at the pool area. They are located on the wall of the pool equipment shed.

Please ensure you are utilizing these sign-up sheets so that you can share in the fun of these activities and enjoy our allocated time. All courts may be used for one hour from starting time provided that if people are waiting

Badly in need of TLC

  • 2 of 5

Great location, BUT the condo is in dire need of basic maintenance and updating. Screens were torn or missing. Window blinds were damaged so you couldn't keep out the hot sunlight. The upstairs gets awfully hot, even with the fan provided! Cold water faucet in upstairs master didn't work, and hot water faucet leaked onto vanity. Downstairs faucets shot out water. The mattresses were lumpy, and bedding very outdated, as is the couch - bring your medicine if you have dust mite allergies! Bedside lamp missing a lightbulb. Not enough knives and coffee cups to serve a meal. Kitchen is ridiculously small - fits one- and refrigerator door can't even fully open. The dining room chairs are well worn and caning torn. It's a hike to the fabulous private beach and wonderful pool. If you have several guests, you have to coordinate your visits, as the one pass provided is the only way to access the pool and beach. The neighborhood and location are great, but until this condo is upgraded, a future stay would probably be more enjoyable in another unit.

Great location... not impressed with condo

  • 3 of 5

The condo is pretty dated. The kitchen is very small and is in need of a new stove. It could also use new silverware. It’s a total of 3 levels.... not a big fan of stairs. When you walk in the front door, to the right is a bedroom and a bathroom that were very nice. You go straight up the stairs and it’s the main living area that consists of a small living room attached to the dining room, but it does have a nice deck, with a gas BBQ and new table and chairs. You go up another flight of stairs to the master bedroom and bathroom. It is very big but it’s very hot up there, and with no air conditioning, it hard to spend anytime up there relaxing. Then there is a down stairs, from the front door. You will find 2 bedrooms and a bath. Not a bad area but you can hear every foot step above you. The water presser in the down stairs bathroom shower is poor. Was very disappointed that out of the 4 TVS in the House only 2 worked.

Overall... the location of the condo is beautiful... it’s just in need of some updating. The private beach is definitely a huge plus.

It was ok

  • 3 of 5

The location was great but the pool was closed (one of the main things we wanted), and it was a long way/walk to the beach. Only one TV worked, the pictures of nice TV's in the bedrooms were just for looks. They weren't even hooked up. The stove was older than me and the pans were sliding off the burners full of hot liquid because they were so crooked (hazardous with kids running around). The master bedroom had no blinds, so it was blindingly bright in the morning. On the positive side, the place was spacious, clean, and the deck/patio furniture and BBQ were very nice. The kids room had a heater, which was very nice too. The downstairs was very chilly.

A great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this unit twice before. It is well appointed, and the owner is very good to work with. The complex has many attractive features.
