Living here for 1 year

I just renewed my lease another year. I cannot say enough good things about the view at Long Lake. The staff is great, the maintenance is great and the location is perfect. I have lived in New Brighton all my life actually on the other side of Long Lake is where I grew up and I used to bowl at the bowling alley which is now this complex and I'm very pleased and I would like to make this my home for a long long time.

We are convinced there isn't a better Apartment complex in the area

My wife and I have lived at The View for almost 2 years. The staff is first class, the neighborhood is walk-able, and the location next to Long Lake is unbeatable. Although we are moving on to a new phase of our life, we are convinced there isn't a better Apartment complex in the area. Top notch.

Love The View at Long Lake

Can’t say enough about the View. Office and maintenance staff are wonderful. Residents and their four-legged family members are all friendly. The view of the lake in both the summer and winter is lovely. Underground, heated parking is so nice. Plenty of guest parking available in the lot. The neighborhood, park, and paths are safe are well kept up. Can hardly wait till summer to be able to enjoy the pool. You won’t regret renting here.

All the feels of a Townhome with so many amenities to offer

I have only lived here for 3 weeks but I have loved everything about this new home! I smile every time I come home. I sold my 3 bedroom Townhome on the TPC in Blaine and was a bit apprehensive about renting, but this has all the feels of a Townhome with so many amenities to offer as well! Beautiful grounds, oversized decks, beautiful home space and easy to get anywhere around the metro from this location. The staff is very friendly and are so easy to work with. I’m so happy here! Excited to settle in for a while! ??

I'm looking forward to the rest of my time here!

I moved in only a few weeks ago, but living here has already been a fantastic experience. Even in the leasing office, especially Sandra, has been very nice and helpful. Move in was smooth, the units are large and very nice, neighbors are quite and nice, and I feel very safe here. The amenities are great and being right on the lake is a great perk. I'm looking forward to the rest of my time here!

Excellent place to rent.

Excellent place to rent. Very friendly staff and timely response to anything that needs to be fixed in your apartment. Located on a nice lake with good biking/running trails. Also, free bike, canoe and kayak rentals!

Best community we have lived in

My fiancé and I have lived here for 3 years now, and we just couldn't be happier with the community, staff, and apartment. Unfortunately my fiancé received military orders, so we are leaving this summer. However, this apartment community is SO amazing that they put together a going away party for everyone that was leaving around this time. The staff came as well. This is truly a unique place to live. Just please, if you do come here, make sure you treat it like your own :-)

A great place to call home

I recently entered my second year living at The View, and I couldn't be happier with the amenities and comfort. The location and management are good as well. In searching for apartments around the area, The View's modern building stood out, and after seeing the interior, I wasn't disappointed. Granite countertops, high ceilings, fresh carpeting, washer and dryer in unit, ample storage space... I could go on and on about what sets this place apart from other apartments in the area. The location of the apartment is ideal in that Long Lake Regional Park is literally next door, but with recent construction in the area, the noise and traffic makes this location not total 5-star worthy. Management is usually great; there was a change in staff over the summer and I think some balls were dropped during the transition, but as a whole, management has been attentive. Maintenance is AWESOME, and whenever I place a work request, maintenance handles the issue that same day. I'd recommend this apartment to anyone without hesitancy. Yes, it's pricey, but you get what you pay for: a comfortable place to call "home".

We love living at The View

Wow, what a fantastic community I absolutely love it here. We felt so welcomed when we moved in. The staff in the building and leasing office are great people. Very responsive and helpful and very professional. Neighbors are friendly and there's a good mix of people. The amenities are fantastic as well. Love the pool and party room. And super cool to have access to a canoe, bikes, etc. Being on the park and the lake is a HUGE bonus. The gym is actually super nice unlike most places and there are even free group fitness classes which is totally awesome. The apartment was spotless and absolutely perfect when we moved in. I couldn't be more pleased with my experience here.

Kudos to the management team Susie, Mario, Jesse, Randy, Cor

We lived at the View from May 2014-May 2015 on the 4th floor facing the lake. The View was our transition place between selling our home we lived in for 25 years and moving to Colorado. The management staff Susie, Mario, Jesse, Randy and Corrin are outstanding, genuine, professional individuals. Kudos again to the management team for all the events you provide, and your role in connecting residents with each other. We will maintain friendships with a number of like-minded people we met at our brief time at the View. The apartment was beautiful, quiet, well maintained, and met our needs. We thoroughly enjoyed the pool, fitness center and classes Megan rocks , and miles of biking walking running trails. A special thank you to Mario for keeping the common areas sparkling clean, for the delicious coffee, and for your time and attention on our move-out-day you know what we are referring to . And Susie, your energy and enthusiasm is infectious. Thank you all and we miss you

We will happily be here for a long, long time.

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.

Our family moved in when I was pregnant with our first child…

I have been beyond pleased with our experience here at The View. From the day I sent the initial rental inquiry the management has been both helpful and professional, going out of their way to make the transition as seamless as possible. Our family moved in when I was pregnant with our first child and, being a nervous first time parent, I had many concerns regarding conveniences, safety and community culture. My expectations were exceeded. Management communication with the residents is very thorough and I so appreciate that rules and policy are enforced. I will always be grateful to every single manager I've been in contact with here, as well as the exceptional maintenance team, for creating such a warm and welcoming environment we are privileged to call home.

This apartment complex has a great sense of community

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!

Throughout the many years we have called The View our home

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

Wonderful staff, wonderful residents.

I have lived at The View for almost 2 years. My life here has been great. Wonderful staff, wonderful residents. We have so many different activities like Friday Night game night, book club, when the pool opens for the year there is a party with hot dogs, hamburgers etc. The pool is my most favorite thing to do. I would recommend The View to everyone.

I love living at The View!

I moved to The View a year ago and just signed my lease for a second year here. I was previously a homeowner and was not sure how I would feel living in an apartment after owning a home for many years. I am happy to say the transition was great and I have been very happy here! The staff is wonderful, neighbors are quiet and respectful and you cannot beat the views of the lake! I love spending time on my deck which faces west over the lake. I also enjoy attending social events and spend time at the pool and fitness center. I highly recommend The View to others who are looking to live in this area.

The best for apartment living in Minnesota

This is overall a wonderful place to live. The apartments are furnished with luxery furnishing to include granite countertops and 9 ft ceilings. The cleaning staff work really hard to keep this place beautiful by cleaning the common areas, however the entry ways get packed full of salt and sand during the wintertime which makes it impossible to keep your own entry way clean. The maintenance man is very nice and approachable, he usually works directly with you to schedule maintenance when it is most convenient for you. We have a gym that is open 24 hours a day, huge plus! A couple things to be prepared for: apartment living is very unique from any other living situation since you have direct contact with your neighbors. Some of them can be lazy, loud, careless, etc, so it takes a extra effort to keep these apartments a nice and up to the standard as advertised. If you decide to live here, take pride in where you live. Don't leave trash in the hallways or parking lot, put your gym equipment back where you found it, turn the lights and tv off in the gym, be mindful of the people who live below you, if you have animals, don't allow them to bark all day long (i suggest a bark collar)

Endless Summer Outdoor Pool FUN

I can't say enough about how much my kids and I love the outdoor pool at the View. The pool area is located on the west side of the building, so not only do we get to enjoy the warm sun until late in the day, but we also get to watch as my kids say "the double sunset" every night as the sun makes a pink reflection over Long Lake :) Our other favorite discovery has been as my kids again would like to say " The swimming dance party night" AKA water aerobics! Each Thursday evening all of the sunglass wearin' water fitness neighbors gather at the pool to have fun and exercise with the help of our energetic instructor Jen, and her fun summer song mix. Thanks View for making our summer evenings so fun for our water loving family!

The View Has It ALL- Interior Style, All the Perks, & ENDLES

I moved in and was welcomed to The View last winter with snow covered landscaping and glowing holiday lights. I have really liked it. But YESTERDAY I truely fell in the LOVE with the unique and truely amazing location of this property! The first beautiful day of the spring season, shiny new bikes, and two energetic kids ready to RIDE. We exit the underground parking, we take 1 step out the door, and there we are on the smooth SAFE bike path that seems to go on forever through beautiful Long Lake Regional Park: past a fishing dock, a playground, a beach, a drinking fountain, a picnic pavillion, 2 more playgrounds.... endless bliss- I have never seen my kids so happy, and I have never felt so lucky to have a traffic free, nature filled safe world to help my family explore Minnesota! Nice Job View!

6* for staff: Jeanne, Corrin, Jesse, Judy, Franki, & Mandy

After living on Turtle Lake for over 20 years, we really appreciate the views of Long Lake and enjoy the daily train going by. It wasn't too hard moving from house to apartment, because everything here was new, modern, and updated quality - especially love granite counters in kitchen and bathrooms. We have lots of storage in cabinets, closets, pantry, laundry room and from July to October we ate meals outside on our lakeside deck. Now it is too cold to do that, but it's great that we have underground, heated parking for our car. And of course, we love that we were able to move in with our dog Daisy because The View allows pets. We've reserved the party room for private functions and I have been going to yoga classes with instructor Jenn in the fitness room. Can't wait for the warmer weather so I can return to the outside pool and bike trails around the lake and park. It's great not to pay real estate taxes, shovel snow or rake leaves, and if something needs repair, just call Jesse and he gets the job done and you won't get a bill!! Come stop by and see this place, and please mention my name as they will give me a reward!! You might even get to meet me and Daisy!!

Beautiful home with breathtaking view.

The View at Long Lake is a tairy tail come true. When you walk in the front door you believe you are walking into a home on the lake. Lots of perks such as; no home maintenance, beautiful kitchen, bath and your own laundry room, heated garage, 24/7 fitness center, pool, theatre, and much more. The staff is extremely eager to help and make the experience that much more special.

A great new apartment complex with all the amenities

So far we've been very happy with our apartment at The View. Helpful and friendly staff, nice neighborhood and lots of storage space for an apartment! Balconies are also spacious and the kitchens are gorgeous and roomy. We still have empty cupboards in our house! Pet friendly, and the pet rent is inexpensive ($25) compared to other places we've looked. We are very happy with our place here!
