For today’s independent older adults, Presbyterian Homes’ Lake Forest Place is a Life Plan Community with the perfect combination of sophisticated retirement living and total peace of mind. Located on 60 beautifully wooded acres, Lake Forest Place offers apartment and cottage residences just minutes from downtown Lake Forest and the Lake Michigan shoreline.

Independent Living at Lake Forest Place

At Lake Forest Place, you can retire in a beautiful home in the heart of the North Shore – and never have to worry about maintenance again! Better still, it all comes backed by Presbyterian Homes’ renowned continuum of care. You’ll have access to our assisted living, skilled nursing, memory support, and rehabilitation services for as long as you’re a resident in our community. And regardless of any financial hardship outside of your control, the Geneva Foundation can provide a lifelong home.

Every cottage and apartment home at Lake Forest Place offers its own appeal and unique floor plan – some as large as 2,392 sq. ft. The apartments offer easy access to all the campus common areas including the dining rooms, fitness center, and library. If you love having your own private space, the cottages offer patios, vaulted ceilings, and two-car garages, along with plenty of space to plant your own garden. Whichever floor plan you choose, you’re free to decorate and furnish your new home to reflect your own personal style.
