Timber Top Apartments
Monta G. rated

If you're like me, you see these strings of over-the-top, frightening reviews of apartments saying you'll find everything from crack houses to drive-bys at any given complex, and this just isn't true. I don't understand where these people get this stuff--do they make it up j...moreust for fun? Are they disgruntled at the complex for whatever reason? It completely takes away the purpose of sites like these when you mislead people who are looking for the honest truth about a place to live. Anyway, with that rant out of the way, I can tell you that Timbertop Apartments is a wonderful, beautiful deal. We moved from Wooster, OH, which is a small town out in the country. Being around nature was important to us, and we were worried that would be hard to find moving to a city like Akron. Timbertop is located in the Cuyahoga Valley, very near to the national park and Blossom Music Center (we actually went there for a Fourth of July concert). The clubhouse offers a beautiful view of the valley, and our apartment faced one of the many ponds at the bottom of the hill. We walked in the creek, fished in the ponds, and took many walks around the property. As far as our apartment goes, we lived in a one bedroom in building 50 for $495. It was a little dated as far as the wallpaper goes, but it was clean and all the appliances worked, and we never had a problem except with the closet doors (we broke them off their hinges a couple times!) Twice I had a problem that required maintenance; the screen on our screen door ripped, and our toilet was leaking water. Both times, my request for help was answered promptly and politely, and I never had a problem again. The one critique I have for my apartment is that it had no windows that open. Timbertop has many floor plans however, and a lot of them do have opening windows, but ours didn't, and even though we were on the 1st floor, it did get quite hot. Another problem was that the walls were paper thin- we could hear our neighbors above, below, and next to us all the time, and I'm sure they could hear us. However, this is common for apartment living, and I don't consider it a problem. Sometimes there were parties of college kids-- I wouldn't recommend Timbertop for older people who like their peace and quiet. I have no idea what the idiots on here ranting about crime and section 8 housing are on about. The only apartment across the street is the Waterford at Portage Trail, which is a pricier, upscale complex compared to Timbertop. The only place they might be talking about is the small complex across the street from the clubhouse, which has a different sign, showing that it used to be an independent complex. However, Timbertop now owns this complex; I know this because when we came to look at apartments, one of the ones they showed us was in this differently named building. Perhaps it might have been a problem once, but I think the fact that Timbertop bought it shows that they took the problem seriously and are getting rid of it by controlling who lives in the old complex. We were very happy living at Timbertop. It is a breath of fresh air away from the city. There is a nice laundromat at the bottom of the Portage Trail hill called Nicole's Connection that we used to always do our laundry and get ice cream at. I whole heartedly recommend this place, and please don't let internet reviews scare you-- I can tell you they are probably complete crap. view less

My rent was $500 a month, and for an additional $25, you can rent a washer and dryer if you get an apartment with the proper hookup. They pay for gas heat, which is a plus in the winter time. Parking is pretty ample and secure, although sometimes it's hard to find a place cl...moreose to the apartment building if it's late and everyone is home for the night. They also have some garages for an additional fee per month. Local police patrol the area a few times a day for security. I would also recommend one of the newer buildings (behind the area closest to the office), as the apartments are much more updated and the area is quieter (and more scenic.) I've had nothing but good experiences with maintenence. Once I had a problem with my ceiling leaking late at night and someone came out within an hour and checked it out. Management is okay, but they don't really look at you at a personal level because they have so many tenants. They are very strict about paying the rent. If you are more than a day late, they put a late notice on your door and make you pay a $25 late fee. In the summer, the pool area is very large but also very busy. The facilities are very nice though. Children tend to be out in the streets a lot riding bikes and such, so be careful. In the winter, the roads are paved very well, especially the hills that you have to drive up to access some areas. I was worried about driving up and down the main hill you need to drive on to access the newer area, but I was surprised to see it maintained so well. The buildings are constructed well, although you can hear the people above you if you live on a lower level. Sometimes it does get annoying, but you get used to it after awhile. Overall, I was very happy with my experience.view less

I lived at Timber Top for my last year of college. If you and a fellow roommate or two are looking for an affordable place to live compared to other offcampus options around UA, then I would definitely look here. Timber Top isn't nearly as bad as some houses and apartments I...more've seen close to campus. They are also very affordable, more so than other apartment options in Merriman Valley. The building we lived in never had any trouble with crime or break ins. Whenever we had a maintenance issue there was usually someone there that day or early the next morning to fix it. On top of that the complex was normally very good about plowing and treating the roads and parking lots around the complex when it snowed (which was often that winter). The lighting in the parking lot wasn't great but it sufficed for where our apartment was located. Also never had any problems parking at my building but I know other buildings have more problems with this, especially some of the newer three bedroom units. Was pretty quiet at all hours. Held the heat in pretty well during the winter. There's no central air but instead they install small air conditioners in some bedrooms (my unit had one in each bedroom). Heat is electric. The staff could normally handle any requests although they seemed to have the strong potential to write you off if they felt like it. Not super friendly. When you check the place out they give you keys to several different units for you to look at it. It's a big complex but you can definitely find real solid places there for the price. Not the lap of luxury but definitely livable if your budget is tighter than most. view less
