    "It is just a perfect place, close enough to Lexington and Concord, so we have the ability to take part in other communities. We are close to Walden Pond to hike through the woods, but also in close proximity to end up on the beach. There is a life in Lincoln that is quite wonderful, and they were very open to us joining their community."

    Therese M., Resident since 2017

    "We have lots of things to do. There are many programs and it is just a nice community. You meet interesting people and very interesting people move here. It is just so wonderful to be able to sit down with everyone and discuss their view on life, what they have accomplished and where they came from."

    Bob O., Resident since 2014

    "It is a very good community and a very friendly community. I am talking about the associates and the residents. We have been very happy with the people who work here. It is as if they were very carefully picked. You could not ask for any better reaction and a feeling, so if you are going to belong to a community, this is a great community to choose."
