After searching for a suitable place to live for weeks, my girlfriend and I happened upon Lakeside by chance after helping a friend move out of her apartment. We were immediately taken by the pleasant and pretty scenery. But, more importantly, we were very well-received by a staff member who, right away, treated us like old friends. He showed us around the complex, gave us a tour of the lovely business center, pool area, and other amenonities, introduced us to a member of the maintenance crew (also a very nice dude), and, generally, made us feel extremely welcome. After having experienced very poor service at our previous place of residence,we're happy to live at lakeside. More than happy. This place has a good energy about it. People of all ages and sorts live here, but the atmosphere is one of peace and contentment. I work from home a lot, so I spend a majority of my days here, which is why I can say that there is little more pleasant than catching up on emails, or reading a book, by the lake. As long as you don't mind the occasional flock of geese honking nearby (I like geese, and they're not bothersome here) every now and then. All in all, I would recommend this place to anyone. I've lived in several different apartments in several cities in Georgia, and this place is by far the best. See for yourself. Come talk to the staff and management. They're very friendly.
