Do not move here! The buildings are infested with mice. Office staff and management do not care and are extremely rude. The maintenance here is a joke. The snow is not plowed during the winter nor is salt applied.

I love it at this community. The apartment staff is very helpful and friendly. The maintenance is quick and attentive. The apartment was like brand new when I moved in. I only regret I didn't move here sooner.
