Very nicely located. Access to center of Lexington and most sport/art facilities and playgrounds. No washing machine in apartment. No fitness or swimming pool on site. A little overpriced. Would recommend for families looking for quick access to Lexington center. See More

The move-in process was wonderful - the office worked with us to find the best apartment for us. Although not having an in-unit laundry is an inconvenience, I am very satisfied with our apartment so far.

An excellent and a friendly place to live. Knowledgeable and courteous staff, a perfect place to raise your children. A place of heaven on earth which is quite, clean and relaxing and one can easily go for a walk without worrying about crimes or traffic. See More

Captain Parker Arms is located in the scenic heart of Lexington with easy access to its public facilities, center, schools and parks. During the winter, because of its brick exterior, the apartments are very warm compared to other houses in the town. However, the apartments have… See More

The rating of 2/14/2007 looks suspiously like it was written by the on-site manager. Don't believe it. The management attitude is snippy, vindictive and negative to every resident request.

In 3 years since Dolben took over, has increasingly become transient, short-term rental community with rates now increasing monthly. Significant maintenance done only after multiple requests. Snippy, "don't care" attitude towards tenants. Definitely not a "community" of tenants.
