When you think of Plymouth, we’re guessing Pilgrims come to mind. These days, there’s a lot more going on in Plymouth than gold buckle shoes. We’re a tiny bit obsessed with a village called The Pinehills. It has the feel of a low-key, dreamy vacation spot where the folks who run the place have thought of everything.
It’s a world unto itself; almost like a college campus, but without the stress. Everything is easy, from walking to the gourmet market, wine shop, or dry cleaners around the town green, to playing tennis, swimming, or taking a fitness class at the club, to biking on the trails, to kayaking on the pond.
And don’t get us started on the crazy roster of clubs available to anyone who lives at The Pinehills. You’re a musical theater loving single who reads The New Yorker with a glass of Bordeaux? A bird-watching father of two with a penchant for paddling? A road-cycling, Tai Chi practicing professor? Welcome.
People feel connected here, so communing with neighbors (and their dogs) is a part of daily life. And while it’s easy to hightail it back to the city (just a 55-minute commuter rail ride) or escape to Cape Cod (eight miles over the bridge), there is so much going on that you may rarely want to leave. Weekends bring distractions that give the city a run for its money, such as concerts on the Plymouth waterfront, fashiontruck festivals, Etsy fairs, and the like.
Living arrangements range from urban-style rentals (way more affordable than Boston!) to custom-built single-families. We can’t stop thinking what it would be like living in one of the cottages styled after those in Oak Bluffs on the Vineyard, or maybe a Vermont-style three-bedroom perched on a hilltop.
Who would have thought Plymouth could be this appealing? Let us count the ways.
