Me and my son came up for Steelers v Colts and stayed three nights. The properties are very well maintained inside and out, and have everything you need for a short or long stay. The owner, Robert, is very nice and provides his cell # for anything you need, 24/7. We stayed in unit 11 which is a two bedroom... More

This is an interesting property! It consists of several older homes in a row and they have been renovated and turned into apartments for rent. Myself, my husband and our two year old stayed for one night and really enjoyed it. The apartment was really large, well decorated and had a fully supplied kitchen. The location is close to restaurants... More

Well stocked and functional apartments in a residential neighborhood close to groceries and not far from shopping and good restaurants. There is also a parking lot behind two of the buildings. The buildings are old but nicely restored. This does mean that some things are small: noticeably the bath tub and the stair steps. But everything is clean and works... More

My family stayed in a suite in Building 2 when we moved my son into his college dorm. We were very pleased with the cleanliness, the size of the apartment, the privacy, the safety of the unit, and the availability of a private residential garage--a real bonus so that we didn't have to unload the car when we arrived in...
