You have worked hard all your life and now it's time for you to enjoy your retirement years.

Lake Forest Senior Living Community, Inc. is a not-for-profit retirement community located in Plattsburgh, New York on the shores of beautiful Lake Champlain. Lake Forest is on the edge of New York's magnificent Adirondack Park, only an hour from the village of Lake Placid and the charms of Old Montreal. It's a place where there is time to pursue hobbies, attend concerts, entertain longtime friends, plus have the opportunity to meet new ones.

Select a spacious one or two bedroom apartment in the centrally located congregate building or choose a beautifully crafted townhouse-style duplex with attached garage. Your new home is yours to furnish and decorate with your own personal treasures.

Lake Forest is the ideal setting for doing what you want to do when you want to do it, without the worries of home maintenance, security, or safety. At Lake Forest we know that it's your retirement, your time, your choice!

A warm welcome awaits you at Lake Forest.

There comes a time in your life as an individual or as a couple, when your family and friends no longer live near you and you need some help. You wish to live in a place where you can get the help you need.  There are multiple things such as transportation, caring for the yard, grocery shopping, housework, laundry, etc.  and being able to have both privacy and a sense of community and security in your housing is important. Access to entertainment and daily meals is most helpful. Where do you find such a place? Lake Forest. I have been here more than seven years. I found all those things, and a very competent and caring staff. You may wish to find out about Lake Forest, I did, and both my family and I am happy I live here.
