I researched quite a few apt opportunities in the northern Oakland County area. This place had the best price for what I wanted. I wanted a car port, 2 BR 2 Bath, quiet, safe and close to my job in Oakland county. I was very happy to find that the office staff are very responsive to any request I have had .
I've been living in Lancaster lakes for going on two years now, the community is beautiful and the staff is always friendly and accommodating and quick to fix any maintenence issues I've had, which in two years have been minimal . It's a quiet neighborhood not full of riff raff with people commonly just walking their dogs (which i will add they have convenient stations with bags to pick up feces with) the grounds are maintained and it has a beautiful pond and a nice swimming pool.
Five Star Rating!
I've lived here for a year now and have just renewed my lease. It's a great location, management is friendly, maintenance is quick to respond, and I have good neighbors. While there is always room for improvement as with any apartment-living community, my overall experience has been pleasant. I would definitely recommend Lancaster Lakes to anyone looking for an apt. in the Clarkston area.

Google 5 Star Review: I have had a great experience at Lancaster Hills so far after moving in at the end of August. Whenever I need something fixed in the apartment, someone is there in just a couple days. Neighbors have all been very nice without complaints. Able to get a garage to store outdoor toys. Excited to check out the pool this summer. Signing up for another year here soon!

5 Star Review: Wow, wonderful place to live. Every team member on this property is spot on! During this time of many challenges, everyone is watching out for each other! Free food through organized food trucks and my helpful guidelines to keep us safe. With all these amenities, it feels like home, and it is.

My husband and I are transitioning from six years of full-time RV’ing and working with Bethany has helped to make this a seamless and worry-free experience. Her patience and willingness to work with us through times of good and poor wi-fi and phone service was sooo appreciated. We are excited to be members of the Lancaster Lakes community!
