I live at Lake of the Woods and I would say that the apartments are nice, but the dog poop outside is awful and I have had my grill stolen.

Not exaggerated: This place is pretty in the summer and; at times, they understand about late rent. Other than the lack of grass on the north yards, there is a new roof with more roof vents, some landscaping and he resurfaced the parking lot. but that is the only positive thing I can say about it. Don't let the renovated office fool you. That is the only new thing about L.O.W. They use "KILLS" to cover everything. It is all "sanitarium" white. It covers the smoke, dust and lead paint from 40 years ago until today. The layers of paint are now so thick it covers the shape of the moldings but it still can't hide the beams in the walls and ceilings that show, nor the gaps in the walls because the buildings lean so severely. It leans so severely that the doors have to be custom shaved to close all the way. Be careful though because you can go to bed with the door closed and even with a 1.5 inch gap in most places around the door, it will swell or the building will shift and you won??t be able to open it. 95% of everything is original from 40 years ago. Like antique cupboards? Like 40 year old heating and air conditioning? How about using a furnace that was designed for a mobile home? Hey the windows are new though! They still collect water just like the old ones do and you can still feel the cold coming from the other side! If you like mold then these windows are the windows for you! The building has smoke coming through the paint and mold grows from the layers before it. There isn't proper ventilation for the dryer vents in the building nor do the private dryers so expect your clothes to dry. Eventually you will get a mildew stench in all your clothes and blankets no matter what you do. Go to the office and ask the woman to make a work order for something. IF she even makes one, and IF you get a copy she will "misplace" her copy and she "...musta fergot..." to tell the maintenance people about your request. If she swears she ??didn??t forget? then the fault lies with the maintenance people but hey, you still didn??t get your issue resolved. The water heaters are so small that your will have 3 minutes to get in, get wet and get out. The faucets in the shower have lost their chrome but OMG try to get them replaced; just put up with the rusty cuts. If you enjoy a tub that has seen 40 years of chemicals that have eaten the protective coating off of it; move here! If you love that rolled up linoleum floor from water damage, move here! If you love a tiny toilet that you can??t fit on, move here! If you love that noisy uneven floor with cords under the carpet, move here! If you love 40 year old cable wires inside the building that cause poor reception, line noise and slow internet connection, move here. If you enjoy gaps under and around your front door so big that you can identify who is standing outside your closed door, move here! If you enjoy your cupboard door and fake draws hanging crooked and falling off, move here. If you enjoy the smell of the neighboring fertilizer farm scent all day 52 times a year, move here! Need a fake shutter for outside your window? Just take one off the ground. Stand around, one will fall. Look at the other shutters; they don??t even match so why worry if you are missing one? That pool they brag about will be filled with duck waste for most of the swimming season and if that doesn??t stop you then you won??t worry about the bathrooms by the pool either. That lovely scent of sulfur from the pond will stay on your clothes and in your car so stock up on Febreeze. Parking, just park next to the totaled out Cadillac or the rotted Blazer with the multitude of oil puddles he leaves everywhere. Squeeze next to the diagonal cars who don??t care about the lack of spaces. Park in the spots where the trees grew! Don??t worry about wiping your feet for that nasty carpet you have, the flooded parking lot and the flooded uneven walkways will rinse you up to your ankles! Serve in the military? Don??t worry about giving orders to them, they will keep your deposit because they have the audacity to put a ??military clause? in the lease that shows their lack of care for the Soldier or any other person, they just want to slumlord.
The person who owns Lake of the Woods owns so many other properties and has other business. He is a nice guy from what I hear. He dumped a ton of money into the place as he took ownership in the last two years. Don't think that your outdoor lights will work, that the grass will grow back, that the smell in the hallway will go way or that the rotted floor in the doorway will be repaired. Finish college, get a job outside of Toledo and own a home.
