My husband, daughter and I moved here last year. Blackhawk trails is a wonderful apartment complex. We moved to this complex because we were looking to downsize our homes, furniture, and personal belongings, as we prepare to retire and travel. We… Full Review ▶

We have had a really great experience at Blackhawk Trails. Sometimes I can be high maintenance, I'm not going to lie, and the manager and all the maintenance staff have been super nice and accommodating. We moved here from out of… Full Review ▶

I ve lived in the Blackhawk Trails apartment complex for 3 months during my work relocation to Middleton. From the very beginning, the property manager, -----, has been excellent to work with during this transition. She's made the move and temporary… Full Review ▶

My wife and I moved into the BlackHawk Trails apartments in October after having some water damage to an apartment that we lived in. Arika, the property manager, was beyond amazing in helping us find and move into an apartment in… Full Review ▶

In response to the negative post dated 3/12/14: I've been renting with McKenzie apartments for over 3 years now and recently moved into Blackhawk Trails. I feel that we're all allowed our own opinion when it comes to giving an honest… Full Review ▶

I have had nothing but positive experiences with Blackhawk Trails. My puppy and I moved in last summer and the management has been friendly, helpful, and overly accommodating. I had previously lived in another Mckenzie Apartment Company complex and had been… Full Review ▶

I have lived in Blackhawk Trails Apartments for almost 3 years and have not had any negative experiences. The apartments are spacious and well-maintained - as are the grounds. I have only had to make two maintenance requests while living here… Full Review ▶

Highly recommended! My boyfriend and I lived here for a year and absolutely loved it. The only reason we left was because we moved out of state. However, we would move back in a heartbeat. Office staff was extremely friendly and… Full Review ▶

I recently signed my 3rd lease at Blackhawk Trails, and couldn't be more happy! I've lived in both a 3rd floor loft (Loved it) and now a first floor corner unit (easier for walking my dog). The management is VERY responsive,… Full Review ▶

The grounds are being neglected. Weeds are taking over near the buildings, under the trees, and growing up through the evergreen bushes. Full Review ▶

Moving from a smaller city, I originally hesitated to sign a lease here thinking the rents were a little steep. After visiting more places I realized they were actually close to market and anything cheaper was right next to the beltline… Full Review ▶

I can truly say, since my wife and I moved into Blackhawk Trails, we have been nothing but happy with our decision. This place is very well kept, and the management has been very helpful. We moved across the country to… Full Review ▶

I agree with the review about the noise in the apartments (from the upper floors). The appliances also are noisy and poor quality. The taping and painting of the walls is poor. However, in general the neighbors are very nice, there… Full Review ▶

Blackhawk Trails apartments has great potential because of the friendly people, great upscale neighborhood decent size units, but.... The community lacks good management. And there's a simple reason I know this, because one person cannot be the Property Manager, Leasing Agent… Full Review ▶

EVERY NEGATIVE COMMENT ABOUT THIS PLACE IS TRUE, ASK RESIDENTS AFTER THE OFFICE CLOSES IN THE EVENING AND ON SUNDAYS THEY WILL TELL YOU, SOME RESIDENTS DO OPEN UP. MANAGEMENT GETS AN EMAIL EVERY SINGLE TIME ANYONE POSTS A COMMENT ABOUT… Full Review ▶

I lived in Blackhawk Trails Apartments for 3 years, I LOVED it! It is safe & clean and conveniently located on Madison's West Side. Like shopping?..it's just moments from Walgreens, Target, Old Navy and all the great shops at Greenway Station.… Full Review ▶

You do not want to live here. It sucks and there is no value for your money. Save your money what a hell hole, I can't wait to move. ALL OF THE 5.0 RATINGS OF THIS COMPLEX ARE FAKE POSTED BY… Full Review ▶

I have to say living in Madison or living in this apartment complex have not been the best experience (just moved here few months ago). The first one is the cell phone reception. I didn't get a separate home phone because… Full Review ▶

I think management is posting the positive comments - they are all from the same date and sound like an advertisement Full Review ▶

I lived there for 2 years and the place is sub-par for the amount of money. My first complaint is the heating/cooling system; they have a wall mount unit that is terrible. In the summer months you will roast and the… Full Review ▶

Management is unavailable and is dishonest. The manager she is the worst very rude, uncaring and has poor communication skills.

This thread of reviews seam like advertising posted by the apartment manager and replies posted by jealuos competitor managers. It also sucks that all the posts are posted within one day! Full Review ▶

I have to say that the last anonymous complaint is exaggerated. Yah, the washer/dryer is a little loud.... but at least you have your own in the apartment and don't have to walk to some dirty basement and share with someone… Full Review ▶

Black Hawk Trails far excedes the quality of any other place that I have ever rented from. The Apts are clean and noise proof while the grounds make you feel welcome and comfortable. The location is close to shopping and is… Full Review ▶

Apartment was brand new when I moved in so everything was perfect. One neighbor would play loud music at 3am but that was very rare, and not the apartments fault. Pool and workout room were awesome. Overall it was a great… Full Review ▶

HVAC is terrible (don't get an apartment with a wall unit, you freeze in the winter, boil in the summer, and it is noisy-get an apartment with a thermostat instead)!!!! Skylights cost $400 for shades. Washer/dryer is really LOUD, and has… Full Review ▶
