The Commons is a 62+ premier continuing care retirement community (CCRC) located in Lincoln, MA with homes starting at $500,000.

Our conscientious team of associates and fascinating neighbors are eager to share their interests and experiences with you. You will find ample opportunities to be stimulated in mind, body and spirit. In the words of Henry David Thoreau, who lived and wrote at nearby Walden Pond, you will "live the life you've imagined" at The Commons.

Live your life your way.

Vibrant. Educated. Civic-minded. Interested. Our residents are those words personified. We have activities and programs that address all areas of well-being: lectures and classes to stimulate the mind; music and art to soothe the soul; resident-run clubs and committees for engagement; and physical fitness and outside activities to keep the body active. It is senior living reimagined.

Private, but close to everything.

The Commons is in Lincoln, Mass., just a short distance from Boston and its restaurants, music, museums and more. It is also close to Lexington and Concord and all the history that can be found there. On or off campus, there are always plenty of things to do and see in the area.
