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 10.

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

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.

Outstandnig for Familes (with younger kids)

  • 4 of 5

A really nice place for families with younger kids. It is nice but not too nice so we didn't have to worry about breaking things or not getting our deposit back. It certainly has an incredible location and the complex is amazing. We loved the pool area and the beach!

All being said - could certainly use some fine tuning with window screens being fixed and installed, master upstairs bed in bad shape... but honestly, if it was too nice it would be out of our range. We really did enjoy this place a lot!

Nice place, but needs some maintenance and better service from housekeeping company.

  • 3 of 5

We had several minor concerns and one potentially major concern, which was the smell of gas, possibly from the unit. To elaborate, my husband and I slept in the bedroom on the "middle" level. When someone was taking an evening shower (the water pipes were quite noisy) we could immediately smell gas through the bedroom window, seemingly right after the water was turned off. It dissipated after a few moments. A possible leak at the water heater?

There were a number of small concerns:

1. There was one screen off in the dining area, so we needed to keep that window nearly closed as we had a 20 mos. old child with us. Many of the screens need replacing with at least one being entirely pulled out of the frame on one side.

There were broken blinds on a number of windows, which would have been helpful in the bright mornings on early summer days.

2. We were an extended family of nine with a reservation for 7 days, which mgt. company should have known, and there were not enough rolls of toilet paper (only one extra in each bathroom). There were only five plastic bags for the kitchen waste basket, one of each was filled each day. Also a shortage of plastic bags for the 3 bathroom waste baskets.

3. Three out of four electric stove burners were a problem because the grates were slightly too large for the pans below. Consequently, the burners were not level which could be a burn danger if cooking with hot oil or boiling water, as a pan could slide off.

4. Mr. Cosso told us there were swim towels, but there were none. Not a big deal except we needed to buy several, and we had many at home we could have brought.

5. A carrot peeler in the kitchen would be helpful, and knives need sharpening.

The location is excellent, with a private beach and pool (in two nearby but separate locations), a short drive away or easy walk for persons over about 12 yrs. of age. There are beach chairs and umbrellas provided. It was also nice being close to paved bike trail. Tahoe City seems a nice small community with a Safeway and CVS and close by to nice public beaches. We enjoyed a lovely bike ride beside the beautiful Truckee River on paved bike trail. The town was definitely crowded with bumper to bumper traffic on the weekends, but traffic okay on the weekdays.

Wonderful location; 5-10 minutes walk of the lake for a great summer vacation. Pool and tennis courts were close.
