The community of Lake Forest is incredible because they are always active and continue to listen to residents.

In addition to having a great community, residents are within a short drive from a lot of popular destinations in Louisville. Some of our favorite restaurants, like Taco City, are close by for anyone who likes to get margarita and some tacos. Another local food spot that the Premier Homes Team loves to go to is Crumbl Cookie. While this may not be for our residents on a diet, Crumbl Cookie has “world-famous milk chocolate chip cookies.” If food isn’t your thing, but shopping is, then you are in luck. The Oxmoor Center Shopping Mall and the St. Matthews Mall, are a short drive from the neighborhood. Finally, if you have children who love animals, which who doesn’t, the Louisville Zoo is just a short car ride away.
