I love Lakeside! By the time we move out in June, my husband and I will have lived here for about 4 and a half years. We started off in a one bed/one bath, and then moved to a 2 bed/2 bath after a year. The apartments are very nice, being constantly renovated, and very spacious. Really the only downside is the lack of central air. It does get hot in the bedrooms in the summer, as the only wall AC unit is in the living room, but we bought a window AC unit(~$300) and it made all the difference. It is a bit pricey, but I am sure it is comparable to other apartments in such a nice area. Wheaton/Glen Ellyn are BEAUTIFUL suburbs, and the location of Lakeside is optimal. Only a few miles from 88 and 355 and near endless shopping and dining. The management staff does change frequently, some are better some are worse, but if youâre a low maintenance tenant such as myself, it doesnât really affect you. My favorite part about Lakeside is its location. It is in such a nice, safe subdivision; surrounded by beautiful houses and wonderful walking paths. If youâre a dog owner such as myself, your dog will love the location. Right across Briarcliffe is the most beautiful walking path around a park and a couple ball fields. I will sincerely miss Lakeside as I move to Michigan for my residency.
