Pet-Friendly Apartment Life in Carmel At Lakeside Apartments, we know that your pet isn’t just a pet–it’s family. That’s why Lakeside is proud to welcome dogs and other pets along with our Carmel Residents. We do have some rules for certain breeds and sizes*, and dogs that fall under that umbrella may only be housed in ground-level apartment units. With those rules in mind, know that at Lakeside you and your pet are always welcome, and we want you to feel at home with some of our great pet-friendly amenities: Spacious floor plans, so you’re never in the bind of not having enough room to fit your pet bed or crate. Outdoor green space, so there’s lots of opportunity for fresh air and exercise - in addition to fast access to close by parks and trails. A quality neighborhood. Lakeside prides itself on being one of the most spirited, friendly, and secure neighborhoods in Carmel, and that goes for our canine Residents as well. Bear in mind that while Lakeside is more than happy to provide a home for pet-owners in Carmel, we require all Residents with pets to be respectful of their neighbors and take care of any messes made by pets and abide by any and all community rules. Additional fees apply for Residents with pets. Lakeside Apartments has a 2-pet max per unit, and some breeds may be required to pass a good canine citizenship evaluation to be accepted. *Call 317-564-3175 for details on breed and size policies for pets.
