My family has lived here for about 6 months now and we absolutely love it. The management staff are phenomenal, the amenities are amazing and the people who live here are really nice, it's a very friendly community oriented place. There is always something going on for the residents, whether it's a holiday wrapping party, pool party, national night out or whatever. The access to Long Lake Regional Park can't be beat, we are right on the trail system and just moments from the beach - that is if you don't want to just swim in the pool here! The View is THE best place in the school district to rent, hands down!

We are approaching our third year here at the View and we just love it! This apartment complex has a great sense of community, and there are always things to do: ranging from book clubs, game nights, social hours, and even fitness classes. The classes appeal to people of all ages: the morning classes tend to accommodate seniors and the evening classes tend to attract anyone who wants to sweat! We've just gotten to know so many wonderful people here. The apartments themselves are beautiful, clean, and modern. They have high ceilings, large balconies, granite counter tops (both kitchen and bathrooms), and good appliances. I really appreciate the open concept design and natural light. Also, we are very close to nature trails that pave around Long Lake. I walk or run them almost everyday with the dog. Yes, dogs are welcome here, and it seems like everyone has a dog, but beware, your dog might learn to love the office more than you! There are treats in the office :-) If you are a good person and you take pride in where you live, we will be glad to have you!

I can't say enough about the excellence of The View. This luxurious, resort-like lakeshore community bordering one of the area's premier regional parks is probably one of the finest apartment complexes in the entire Twin Cities. Every life-style amenity you could want is available here. But The View's greatest asset is its exceptional professional staff. Corrin, Susie, Randy, Mario, Kirsten... Their exceptionally friendly, caring, can-do professional attitude positively radiates through this entire community. Occasional requests for special services or maintenance are always performed on or ahead of schedule and always are performed with total professional excellence. Each professional's concierge-quality service is consistently of the "wow factor", totally exceeding our expectations. This team's exceptional professionalism and solid management of this property speaks very highly of the Stuart Companies' commitment to maintaining a top quality property with the finest of professional management. When we decided to try apartment living as a one year experiment, we picked The View. We will happily be here for a long, long time.

Ever since Corin Secrist, the new property manager, has taken over for Jeannie, the View has gone down hill. The simplest of things become a monumental task but more importantly Corin Secrist is a flat out liar. She will make up stories about process servers coming Into the office and yelling at her, have to be told how to act professionally and properly by her boss and then lie to FedEx, saying a person doesn't live at the View, in her immature and twisted way to get back at a person. Then when you hire a moving company that charges an hourly rate and reserve the elevator so you can move in a timely manner without the movers sitting around and waiting, she will reserve it to someone else. Oh and no joke Corin Secrist wants to charge $50 to vacuum and $30 to clean a toilet. If you want to know more just message me and I will show all her emails, immature acts and ridiculous prices.

The View at Long Lake in New Brighton has been our home since August, 2012. In the almost three years that we have lived here, we have: entertained family and friends, enjoyed the panoramic vistas and views from our apartment windows and balcony, strolled and roller-bladed on the nearby paths through Long Lake Regional Park, hosted dinners for both small and large groups in the Lakeside room (including a Groom’s dinner for one of our sons), and avoided additional back pain by leaving the snow shoveling and lawn mowing to the care of Property Management. We have met and interacted with some of the most interesting, gracious, and caring residents anyone could ask for or expect. Our dog has socialized with most, but not all, other dogs, but apparently still prefers a human touch and an occasional treat from the office staff. Throughout the many years we have called The View our home, we have been impressed with the competence and consistency of the Property Management staff. Their responsiveness to our requested work orders and concerns has always been swift and completed to our satisfaction. This has been an extremely well-managed facility and we highly recommend it to anyone looking for a new residence. - Greg and Deb
