I have thoroughly enjoyed my stay here. I came down to deciding between this place and another pricier place. I figured a pricier option had to be better but after finding consistent positive reviews on the management and location online, I decided to give it a shot. I am glad I did. The apartment manager Jason is a very kind and gracious personality. He handled every meeting with me professionally but personable at the same time. They are open on pets but do require a deposit. There is a dog run next to the pool and plenty of walkways with doggie bags and trash cans so you can clean up after your pet. The pool is open during the summer assuming it hasn't been raining often and it is closed on Mondays for cleaning. There is an exercise facility with a treadmill, stationary bike, and all in one sort of machine. Laundry rooms are placed strategically around the property. The neighbors are very friendly and it is the type of place with personal appeal, where people may place benches or ornaments in front of their place. The courtyard area has a table and a lot of well maintained plants. Very quaint and homey. The 2 bedroom apartment itself is very nice and has a great monthly rate. Additional money can be paid for covered parking but I never had an issue finding parking. There are plenty of handicap spots near the apartments. People are very nice and I love the amount of dogs and the courtesy to pet owners. There is a security vehicle patrolling the premises at night which can be notified for any concerns. I had no issues with maintenance. Jason is an amazing asset and the complex has done well under his management which I believe spans a decade. I would recommend this place to anyone.
I've lived at the Mansion House since 2005 (I'm writing this in October 2011), and my mother-in-law lived here for about 10 years before that. The ownership has been the same for decades, and they have shown a long-term commitment to maintaining a quality residential community. I don't agree with everything they have done, like eliminating the cafe and beauty/barber shop, but it's still a great place to live. The recent remodeling has really modernized the building, with new energy-saving (dollar-saving!) double-pane windows which eliminate almost all outside noise. Whenever someone moves out of an older-style apartment, many more updates are done. Just to give both sides, I'll mention that a common complaint is roaches, but all you have to do is report it, and you get a quick extermination visit. Just do your part and don't leave food out for roaches, and you should be fine. Jim Purdy
Lakeside is a great place to live. The Lakeviews are just amazing and the year round fishing is awesome too. I have not had any issues and I've been living here for a yr and a half. No problems with neighbors or any stealing or with office people. Its great. I love it here. Only thing that I dont like whatsoever Is that after office hours a whole bunch of people and kids come from the duplexes next to our apts to swim in the small pool we have. Thats actually one of the complaints im making later today to the office. But other than that its great. Every 1 or 2 months the pest control comes so thats the best part. I've never seen a roach in my house.
