I would NOT recommend living at park forest villas or renting from pfe. The apartment was not cleaned in the slightest when I moved in even though I was told it would be. There is a huge mold problem in the closets and bathrooms. Their solution… See More

I chose Park Forest Villas because their rent is about as inexpensive as you can get in State College for a one-bedroom apartment. As others have mentioned, the units are quite old and many are very much in need of refurbishment. The wall AC unit is… See More

Park Forest started managing our townhouse about a year after we moved in. We appreciate everything they did for us and would definitely recommend this group over and over again.

Park Forest does a good job of notifying you ahead of time when they will be on the property, and have been quite responsive when I've had inquiries. If I have a serious issue, they make sure to take care of it.

Way overpriced for an old, cheaply built apartment. Everything, the cabinets, sink area, closet doors, room doors are basically warped plywood from several decades ago under countless layers of cheap off-white paint.. Tiny hallway-like "kitchen" that does not have a double sink, or sink hose, or… See More

I just moved in recently. The apartment is clean; the bathroom has remodeled. Staff are professional: they responded to my requests immediately. The neighborhood is very nice; very closed to various shops. So far, I am very satisfied with my experiences here.
