About Jason Wells

I live and work in San Rafael, CA, but have always enjoyed Tahoe growing up and do so now with my family. I like to share my love of Tahoe by offering my 2nd home with others. I have invested in a complete remodel of this townhome to give it a fresh and clean, modern vibe. I hope you enjoy.

Jason Wells purchased this townhome in 2014

Why Jason Wells chose Lake Forest

My mother originally owned this townhouse and we enjoyed using it throughout the years as a vacation home. I have a lot of memories from my childhood here, enjoying the open backyard and riding bikes with the other kids in the complex. It's a great place to meet other visitors and families and swap vacation ideas/stories. The hot tub, pool, playground, and tennis courts are hits with almost everyone.

What makes this townhome unique

With well maintained and completely flat bike paths to downtown Tahoe City, this is a great place in the summer. The pool and playground and walking distance to beach are a given, but biking/walking into town is also a great adventure. Tahoe City offers many restaurants, shops, a beachside park/playground, local upscale cinemas, golf course, Truckee River, Truckee Dam, miniature golf, marinas, ski resorts, etc. to enjoy. Our townhome complex comes with free snowplow service, so access is easy even in the winter. Located within 14 miles from Squaw Valley, Alpine Meadows and NorthStar ski resorts. Winter or Summer, this location is perfect for activities, eating, sightseeing, skiing, rafting, outdoor sports, and of course enjoying beautiful Lake Tahoe.

Well appointed, cozy townhome with everything you need!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here over a weekend in October after staying here many times before. We love the location so close to Tahoe City, but away from the hustle and bustle. During ski season it's close enough to many different ski resorts. This time, we loved riding our bikes to the local beach and chilling by the lake for the day!

All the amenities are modern, updated, and clean. The beds are comfy. The kitchen is well equipped, complete with a BBQ to allow us to enjoy a steak dinner followed by fresh baked cookies! Yum!!

In previous stays, there's so much room that we brought the in-laws along! This time, it was still perfect for the 4 of us. We love this townhome so much and look forward to future stays.

Great location for those who like to stay out of your car while you are on vacation.

The unit is great for 8 people and the only needed work is on the back deck. It needs to be replaced. Great spot

Owner's Response: Thank you for your visit and feedback. We have plans to build a new deck in the off-season so we don't disturb Summer renters with a loud and disruptive deck project.

Cool place, nice bakery close by with good coffee , would have loved to have some sugar for coffee

  • 5 of 5

The place was perfect for 4 adults and 3 kids, hope to come back next year for another stay. The pool was great, the location was great, we even got to see a bear about 300 yards from the pool, and he or she was a big one, we had a very relaxing time.

Comfortable, clean, modern condo in perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We had a great vacation with our three small boys at this Lake Forest Glen condo. The complex is safe and the children were able to ride bikes and explore on their own. The condo is modern, clean and very comfortable. The pools and tennis courts were wonderful. The complex is near both a rocky beach and a good short trail through a forest to a sandy beach. It is a very short drive to everything in Tahoe City. I would highly recommend this condo.
