I have been looking for my first apartment for a little over a year and I am SO HAPPY I decided to go with The Mansards. I shopped around for awhile looking in Highland, Schererville, Merrillville, Hammond, and Hobart, but I think I got the most space for the Best Price at The Mansards. YES my cabinets are older and my bathroom is very plain (all white) too, but nothing a little decorating can't handle!! I live by the lake and my building is so quiet and clean (NO BUGS, NO MICE NO NASTINESS)! The staff is really nice and because I work for one of the Casinos--I get a 10% discount on my rent every month!! I read some of the posts and I can not see how they could possibly be talking about the same place that I now LIVE-- I LOVE IT HERE!! If you are looking to move you owe it to yourself to at least visit the Mansards and see what I AM TALKING ABOUT!!
