The Ledges Apartments are the nicest apartments you'll find in Groton. The pool is spectacular but my son and I frequently got colds after swimming in it. The gym and clubhouse are nice. We had more of an issue with the surrounding neighborhood and CT in general - VERY isolating and a depressed neighborhood. The new management is fair. Some unfriendly some not. Maintenance is timely. Appliances are dated and low quality. Overall we liked the apartment and terrace and surrounding grounds are immaculate.
Just took a tour of this place. Based on the prices I assumed this would be a nice place for a short term rental. The clubhouse is nice but it stops there. The unit I saw was a 3 bed room in terrible shape. Builder basic brass finishes, dated appliances, and gross beige carpet throughout. Also a wierd double shower setup in the master bathroom. I haven't rented since college ten years ago and either my standards have gone way up or this place is a dump. I was extremely disappointed considering this was the highest price apartment building in the area.
I lived here for a year and I appreciated the experience. The floors seemed a bit thin, I heard my upstairs neighbor every time someone in heels walked across the hard floors but that was it. Every experience I had with the staff was exceptional: maintenance staff was responsive, helpful, personable and effective. The leasing office personnel were willing to work with me and help work around some package issues I had during my time there, and were as helpful as could be the rest of the time. The facilities were wonderful; it was very nice having a pool and work out center on site. I would say this was a great place to live, but the only thing I would say against it is the price seemed a tad high. Other than the price, I would recommend it highly.
This place is great try to come in the morning or early afternoon because the office you go in and they have a nice display of coffee yumm they have different flavors from decaf to chocolate to Vermont coffee to breakfast coffee...ect the brand I believe is cool beans coffee. Good Coffee and plus not just the working out room and pool they have movies you can watch in the office room and a pool table aswell as if you need a question of any type just ask the people that run the office there always useful!!!. The office hours are Monday-Friday 8:00 AM-6:00 PM Saturday 10:00 AM-5:00 PM Sunday 12:00 PM-5:00 PM *weekend hours are subject to change
While The Ledges show nicely, there are so many things that are wrong that you don't notice until you move in. The carpet was literally coming apart every time I vaccumed, you can hear every step the neighbor above you takes, and if you are by the entrance door, you know every time someone comes into or out of the building. Most of their restrictions and rules are aparently only guidelines, as management does not enforce anything. As far as insulation goes, what insulation!?!? We could see through the weatherstripping on the patio door, breezes came through the windows that moved the blinds, and we I unplugged something out of an outlet, you could feel the draft through those as well! If that wasn't enough, when paying the "Lease Breaking Fee"- 1 month's rent, they declined to inform us that it was whatever the Market Rate for the apartment was (we had a discount per our rent agreement when we signed up), that cost us another $250+ that we weren't prepared to pay that day.
The place isn't worth the money they charge, and was an awful experience. I would never reccomend anyone to move there.
