Amazing views from the lakefront units. Each staff member I dealt with was very friendly and accommodating. Highly recommend.
The only note is their buildings are in need of some TLC - the deck paint is peeling off and the addition of air conditioning would be fantastic (the lofts get very hot on a summers day).
