Great apartment unit and excellent services.
Management is responsive and nice team. I know several full-time MBA family live here so that you can exchange information and make friends. Residents are nice and there has been no noise problem so far (I live in 3rd floor).
Great apartment and amenities
I have really enjoyed living here. I wish it was a little closer to campus though.
Excellent, but far
Lake Village has great apartments. They are spacious, clean and new (management changes carpe and paints walls every year). It is pet friendly and close to a good supermarket. It takes 15 min to go to Ross by bus. If you are single or have an active social live, it will require few uber rides (buses stop at 9 pm).
The apartment is great.
It has a lot of space, bedrooms are pretty big and everything works fine.
The complex has a gym and a swimming pool (which is cool but you probably use it for 2 or 3 weeks per year - given the internship period)
. Bus routes are close and it doesn't take more than 25 minutes to get to Ross, including the walking time to the bus station.
There is a supermarket right in front of the apartment complex and zipcars are within walking distance (20 minutes).
My only complaint is that if you live in the first or second floor, upstairs neighbors can get a bit noisy. If possible, trying to get a 3rd floor apartment would be a solution.
If you choose lake village, make sure that you carefully select the building in which you want to live. Consider the distance to the Gym, supermarket, bus stop, and trash disposal (remember that you have to walk there during the winter if you don't own a car)
Great place for Rossers looking for a calmer place
We have a very comfortable and spacious apartment at Lake Village. Management promptly help with any maintenance issues (one night we had them opening our apartment at 1am because we have lost the key). Only problem is if you have loud upstairs neighbors.
Lake Village has been a great apartment. My unit is fairly large (roughly 900 sq ft) and includes a personal garage, full sized washer/dryer and plenty of storage. The units are fairly new and are very well maintained. The staff is responsive to any issues and the area is quiet. A grocery store, dry-cleaner, coffee shop, and CVS are across the street. Michigan Stadium is within walking distance (about a mile away). For me, Lake Village's only major downside (aside from the slight price premium) is that it is not convenient to get to Ross. It is ideal for someone with a car (though I know people who live here who take the bus).
Me and my wife we are very happy with our apartment. The facilities are new, modern, and very convenient. The location is great as it is close both to downtown and Ross. There is a nice community of neighbors, both from Ross and other schools. The leasing office also organizes social events (i.e. Oktoberfest) to motivate the community to know each other. The apartment is extremely nice and very complete.
GBR Lake Village Review
Residence: MBA1, wife, and 40lb dog.
We love Lake Village. I have lived in 5 different rentals throughout my career and this is by far the best property management I have experienced. Apartment is approximately 2 miles from Ross. Two bus lines are within walking distance and a bike commute is easy. Complex has a dog park on site and a small gym for residents. Apartment includes covered carport or garage depending on unit. Grocery store w/i walking distance. Sadly no real bars are within walking distance. Uber is usually reliable however. Units are updated with new countertops and appliances. Neighbors are responsible students or young professionals.
Spacious apartment close to bus stop to UM
Great floor plan, close to UM bus stop, new apartments, a lot of storage space, car ports and closed garage available. Gym and pool on site, great staff, admin services very good.
One Bedroom Lake Village
Rate Lake Village 7/10. Pros: quiet, nice community; free gym access (with small weights); free pool access; walking distance to several bus stops, grocery store, vet. Cons: distance to campus and bars/restaurants, expensive, variation of quality appliances across apartments, noise/light from soccer stadium (depending on where you live).
Overall: great place if you have a car, have a family, are looking for a quiet neighborhood, have a dog (any size), and want some space.
Great apartment, close to grocery store, biggest mall in town, and varsity tennis court and golf course. Only concern is the price.
Comfortable but pricey.
If you live with family and have a car, it is a good place. Quiet, spacious and safe. No restaurant in walking distance. Grocery nearby is a little expensive. The bus stop to school is 10 minutes away.
Great place if you are not concerned about being very close to school!
Good house, poor infrastructure
The house is pretty big and has all you need. The rooms are beautiful and the kitchen, closet and living rooms are good.
However, other facilities such as the club house and the gym are simple and provide only the minimum necessary.
