Lake Forest

With its towering trees, picturesque street plan and bluffs overlooking Lake Michigan, it’s easy to see why Lake Forest is known for its natural beauty. 

Rich in history, the community offers true luxury in a resort-style setting 30 miles north of Chicago. Historic estates built by legendary architects Howard Van Doren Shaw, David Adler and Henry Ives Cobb are interspersed among elegant homes with impeccable landscaping. Properties range from multi-million-dollar mansions to maintenance-free new-construction condominiums and single-family homes that are close to town.

At the heart of Lake Forest is Market Square, a historically significant landmark and charming hub of boutique shopping and dining. Cultural and recreational opportunities abound including the Gorton Community Center and Lake Forest Recreation Center, as well as at beautiful beaches, golf courses and biking trails. There is also a Metra station right in town, providing commuters with convenient access to downtown Chicago.
