At first this seemed like a very nice place to live. After having lived here for two years. I soon came to realize all the issues. Toilet issues, several times it has over flowed for some unknown reason. Due to this… Full Review ▶

The building is decent, the parking is pretty ample, but there were a couple of things that convinced me to move out: 1) Utilities. At worst, I was paying $250 a month for heat/electric. At best, $100 (and that's being gracious).… Full Review ▶

The apartments themselves are of entirely decent quality. Maintenance is prompt and snow removal is quick. The grounds themselves are very well-tended and attractive. Parking is more than ample. The problem is with the property manager, Adam. I believe he is… Full Review ▶

Where do I start. I have never experienced such horrible service from a building manager. Adam is quite the big brother type stalking your every move and staring into cars while walking around the parking lot. He is unfriendly and does… Full Review ▶

Country Gardens Apartment is the worst apartment I have ever lived. I suspect that anyone says "this place is perfect (like the last review)" is the manager himself writing such a review. Of course, they need to boost the rating on… Full Review ▶
