PLEASE TAKE THE TIME TO READ THIS REVIEW!!

PLEASE TAKE TIME TO READ! Do not get a place at Laurel wood. This has been the most expensive and worst place I have ever been in. To validate, I am an actual tenant here (because I see them responding to reviews that they say are fake reviews). I currently live in 1014 and have been here since Dec. 2021. Move out date very soon! Let me start by first mentioning how terrible the drafts are downstairs. We have a smart space heater that registers ambient temperature. In the winter we have our thermostat set to 68. Our heat constantly runs with our space heater reading ambient temperature at 59 degrees. Our upstairs gets extra hot, around 79 degrees (due to the heat constantly running). A lot of this is due to a storage shed attached to the laundry closet with no insulation. Oh and our water pipes are also exposed in this un-insulated storage shed. So in the winter, you need to run a space heater in the storage shed and/or run water at night so your pipes don't freeze/burst. Which has happened multiple times. So keep in mind your are going to spend an extra $200-$275 a month… See More>

    We are in the G h e t tonow - rah ta ta..

    I have lived here for years and it’s just gone downhill so much. I don’t know what’s worse here now. It’s between the gossiping neighbors, the forced stillness because you can’t have a daytime kids birthday party or your neighbors complain, the one idiot in the small blue race car who speeds through constantly even though 10 mph is posted, the fact that rent is increased every year at minimum of $60 and no one is sure why, (where are the improvements?), the cigarette smokers at the entrance of the buildings blowing smoke in my children's faces, the incompetent office staff that do nothing to stop real trouble/disturbances except to leave notes on doors, the suspicious ex-convict looking maintenance staff, or the fact that I pay an exuberant amount of rent to live like a prisoner on cell block G (for the g h e t t o it has turned into) - nonetheless I am out of here soon. I have had enough of living like a prisoner on a cell block with the scum they’ve let in here. Save your money and stay away- this is THE G H E T T O now.

          Laurelwood is a great place to live in the Summit

          I lived in Laurelwood for nearly two years, Mark & Geri is always available for help whether it is related to the townhouses or not -- they are really reliable and great neighbors. The buildings are old, but Mark & Geri will has always made improvements when asked and suggested others because they were concerned about you! You cannot ask for better living than that. Besides, the school system is great and you have a community that is looking out for your best interest 24 hours a day. Mark & Geri keep up the great work that you do.

            Laurelwood very nice and peaceful

            I have been living at Laurelwood, Clarks Summit for one and a half years and I am overall very happy. Geri and Mark the Managers as well as the staff are always very friendly and whenever I had a problem it has been fixed within hours. Last night I called in after hours and left a message that I had a dripping faucet this morning it was fixed by 9:15 AM. I work off hours and often come home late at night and my time requests as to when I am available and awake are always honored. Granted the Townhouses are older but they kept very nice and are equipped with modern appliances, new carpet and freshly painted. The surroundings are very peaceful and I feel very safe here. I never really hear my neighbors and they have stated they never hear me. I do agree with the one person that wrote,that this complex is owned by an absentee landlord who does treat this strictly as a business, but the Management here meaning Geri and Mark is absolutely bar none.I can only recommend Laurelwood.

                LaureWood is a special place to live!

                My husband and I (and our little dog) have lived at LaurelWood for about a year. While the buildings are not new they are built in such a good way that you never hear your neighbors...we have people on both sides of us and they have assured me they never hear our music, our TV, our doge, our Grandfather clock chimming, etc.. And we never hear one sound from them. The people could not be nicer. The manager and his wife and the staff responde to your needs ASAP. The grounds have a "country atmosphere" and there is lots of space to walk, with or without a dog! The ONLY problem we find is that the property is owned by an absentee landlord, is not very interested in the people here...BUT at least he does give our on site managers free rein to take care of our needs. For our family this is the best possible rental situation in the Clarks Summit, Scranton area. KVR

                  i've been at laurelwood about a year now,and i like it very much.yes the apartments are older (new ones going up)but thet are very well maintained.when a problem does come up managment is very prompt in taking care of it.they are always available,and if they should be working in one of the units there is a sign on the office door telling you where they are.they have been a help to me since the day we moved in and have never passed buy with out stoping to say a few words. i think they are friendly and take there posistions seriously and shoud be commended.

                      Very unfriendly resident managers

                      Very bad apartments. Resident managers are invisible. No proper maintenance of the property. Very old apartments. Problem with heat in winters, air conditioning in summer. Very expensive apartments and is not worth the money. You will see surprise bills every month. Management is not at all friendly.

                        Laurelwood Townhomes is located in a beautiful wooded area that is peaceful, scenic and serene. There is a beautiful courtyard that is used as a picnic area and is great for kids to play in. The apartments are modern, clean, and spacious. All appliances are new and maintained regularly. The property owners and maintenance staff go above and beyond to ensure that you don't feel like just a tenant, but like part of a community and a family. They have a wonderful maintenance and groundskeeping staff that go out of their way to make the residents as comfortable as possible and respond quickly to any emergency day or night 7 days a week. I would reccomend Laurelwood Townhomes to any family looking to live in a community where your neighbors are kind, courteous, and make you feel welcome no matter where you're from.

                            I have lived in the Laurelwood community for many year. I raised my children here. Nice place to live, very quite and neighbors are very nice. The manager and head of maintenance are a married couple and work with you in every way possible. Give it a try, you'll love it!

                              UNDER NEW MANAGEMENT - VERY RESPONSIVE. My lease was for6 months; a 12-month lease is $100 less per month.

                                This is one of the worst apartments to live. No childrens playground, gym or any other facilities. One basketball court is there but it is old and poses much risk.<br><br>Town Houses are very old and noisy when anybody walks upstairs.<br><br>Resident manager, Ann, is never available to address any of the tenants issues. Only time she is available is when time is due for rent.

                                  This is one of the worst maintenance I have ever experienced. Only one maintenance person for the entire complex and The manager (Ann) would not be available in the Rental office. She never attend the phone. Always the tenants needs to leave a message.The rental office is part of her house and so she always stays in the house.

                                    This is a nice family oriented place. The apartments are OLD , but spacious and provide different moels for your needs. Then Maintenance people are the best and are very friendly. The only complaint I have is with the Electric heating and the power bill that gets to $300 in winter (for a month).

                                      Great Place, Quiet and Family Oriented

                                      The two bedroom townhouse was very spacious and comfortable. Modern kitchen and bathrooms. Having an extra bath downstairs was great. Large master bedroom. <br> <br>Thank goodness for the sliding glass door, otherwise there´s not a lot of light in the apt. <br> <br>The electric bill during the winter was VERY VERY high. Around $300 one month. <br> <br>Overall, we enjoyed this complex and the friendly, safe neighboorhood. <br> <br>Overall, the Scranton/NEPA area SUCKS. Low paying jobs, uneducated population, no real culture . . . But if you have to live there Clarks Summit is the nicest suburb you can find. A great little downtown area and convenient to shopping.
