My husband and I moved here about 9 months ago and are really enjoying it here!
We love Woodland Ridge. Our pup especially loves the Bark Park!
My wife and I love to relax by the pool in Summer. Highly recommend!
We enjoy having laundry machines in our apartment and we also love our balcony. The location is amazing - I can hike on Michigan dunes!
Love living here! The office workers are a great team and work hard at their jobs. We have lived here almost a year and have not had any issues.
I love living here because it feels like home!
Awesome place to live. Amazing people in the office. Maintenance is right here if and when you need them!
So glad we can call this place "home". The staff is amazing, the grounds are beautiful, and so are the apartments themselves.
I am going on 2 years at Woodland Ridge. I love the location!
