Cuyahoga Falls, OH is a quiet suburb of Cleveland nestled close to the towns of Akron and Copley. With a population of about 50,000, it offers residents enough to do to keep busy yet maintains a quaint, sleepy-town feel. The bargain apartment hunter will find Cuyahoga has a range of low cost housing options (though there are luxury listings, too). Studio apartments are harder to come by but you can find one-bedroom apartments as low as $499 (Portage Towers on High Street near Trail End Park, for example, are on the more affordable end). From there, rents range up to $700, which will buy you between 700 and 900 square feet.
Just south of Portage Towers, you’ll find more upscale apartments around the Brookledge Golf Course. Most of these places will have a pool, hot tub, Internet, laundry, ample parking and other luxury amenities. To the northwest, there is also a smattering of nicer apartments around Wyoga Lake with much of the same types of comforts. The town is more spread out around there, and you’ll find a lot of subdivisions with places like Linden Lane Apartments and Pine Mill Ridge Apartments scattered in between. There are one-bedroom apartments in the $850 to $980 price range, which gives you about 1000 square feet. Two-bedrooms of comparable luxury are a bit more, around $1000 to $1100. Many of these luxury apartments are pet-friendly, though you’ll need a deposit and breed restrictions are somewhat common. Cats are usually okay, but dog-owners with canine friends of over 70 pounds may have a harder time finding this type of luxury housing for rent.
For families looking for a place to rent, this lovely Ohio city also has a number of three and four-bedroom homes. Though house rentals are not as common as apartments, those that do exist offer quite a bit of bang for your buck. For example, most 4-bedroom homes out there will cost $900 to $1100 — not a bad deal for that amount of space. Additionally, there are likely to be large rooms, fireplaces, walk-in closets, offices and full basements. Some offer two-car garages and plenty of storage space. Leases on both homes and apartments in Cuyahoga Falls aren’t too bad with many property management companies allowing 6-month contracts. This gives you time to decide if you like the place, (hopefully) easing some of the move-in pressure.
