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.

Lovely property

  • 3 of 5

This is a lovely property and we would likely stay here again. There was plenty of room for all of us but I will say we did not end up using the fourth bedroom because it was downstairs next to the front door (safety issue for us with four kids) but that is just our personal preference.

There were some issues that the owner did try to help us with including all of the wires being mis-wired on the TV when we got there making it so the internet did not work. There were a few other small issues I shared with the owner that he said he addressed the next day (things that likely get looked over when cleaning crews or renters don't make owners aware).

The only reason I gave it 3 stars to be honest was that I felt the linens were not clean including the shower floor mats and the comforter on the master bed. I think these are things that really should be washed and replaced every time someone rents as I noticed they had a spare.

Aside from that the townhome is lovely, has everything you need and is located in a great location. The owner was very responsive and kind to me and I suspect the issues we encountered were more of an issue of the crews that care for the place (and a few previous renters) than lack of intent on their part.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your feedback and sharing your experience. I try to fix all issues that come up and will be putting in a new shower mat and master bedroom comforter next week. I will also remind the cleaners to rotate the spare sets of sheets and report when any of them need replacing. Jason Wells

Convenient place, among a property of other condos. Easy, clean, and a short drive from Tahoe City!

Nothing too fancy, but great place!

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.
