5 Star Review: I have loved living here for two years and just signed a lease for a 3rd year. The nature preserve, pool, pond with walking path, gym, yoga room, and apartment layout with porch is great! I have had only positive experiences with the staff. As a graduate student, I appreciate that it is close to MSU but far enough that I can be away from school in a quiet neighborhood.- ApartmentRatings
