The spacious & modern fitness center

Often gyms feel dirty or cramped and you feel like you can’t get a good workout. Our fitness center is new, clean, and equipped with modern cardio and circuit machines for quality exercise time.

A fireplace on the porch? Yes please!

The porch behind the clubhouse is a great place to relax and watch some television or just chat by the fireplace. It’s good to go out and get some fresh air, even if you are still sitting on a couch.

You can relax or play outside

In the summer months, our residents get to enjoy the resort-style pool with lounge chairs and umbrellas. On either sides of the pool, you will find ball courts, a playground, and even a fire pit!

The theater room

Want the feel of a movie theater without going too far? Great! We had a state of the art theater put into our clubhouse so you can enjoy your own movies on the big screen!

Redecorate Your Apartment: Fall 2015

We love the fall season at Arcadia Run and it is quickly approaching here in Manassas, VA! When the seasons change, so do your home needs. If you want your new apartment home to reflect the season, with just the right amount of your personal style, here are some easy tips to make your apartment cozy and warm this fall!

Add layers – Just like you will be adding layers of clothing to your wardrobe for chillier months, you can layer your apartment too! Add comfy area rugs, blankets, and pillows to keep your apartment warm and inviting.

Rethink your colors – If you want some trendy ideas for fall, take a look at Pantone’s Fall 2015 colors to use for room accents, like a blanket or a vase. If you’re feeling extra ambitious, repaint a piece of old furniture to add more color to the apartment.

Seasonal décor – You can never go wrong with the classic autumn décor, like pumpkins, fall foliage, and a wreath for the front door. You can go as big or as subtle as you want with these fall inspired details.

Cover it up – If you have any wooden seating in your home, consider a slipcover or seat cushion to add a little more comfort. Slipcovers can also add an instant color makeover to any couch or chair!

Replace scents – Gone are the days when your air fresheners, hand soaps, and candles smell like a fruity cocktail or the ocean breeze. Replace the scents in your home with pumpkin, spice, and everything nice!

Flowers – Bringing in seasonal fresh flowers can brighten up any room. To add a little twist, put dried flowers in a vase for a rustic feel.

Frame your summer memories – With the warm weather on the outs, you will most likely be spending more time inside. Print out your favorite summer photos and place them in frames around your apartment.
