ACCOLADES FROM OUR RESIDENTS

We needed to be a day’s drive from NYC. We kept coming back to Albemarle Plantation, as it offered everything we were looking for: ocean access via Albemarle Sound, marina, and the most beautiful, peaceful location. In our four years here, we stay busy with boating, tennis, golf, bocce, swimming, and numerous Club activities. We have been to more concerts and shows than ever before. Shopping in Hampton Roads area is superb. HOWEVER – the best feature of Albemarle Plantation are its residents. Spend time here and see why we know we made the best choice for our retirement years.
I moved here with my husband 13 years ago after looking at 14 other developments, and from day one realized what a great decision we made. This is the most caring and generous community you can imagine. So many activities — and to think when I first arrived I asked a resident how she kept busy! This community offers everything you could possibly want, including beautiful surroundings (& spectacular sunsets over the water) and a very peaceful way of life.
We choose “The Plantation” as it is called by the locals because of the following: a. close to Virginia beach and Maryland where grand children live. b. North Carolina doesn’t tax your social security or Military retirement income. c. gated community with landscaping is beautiful year round. d. Having a golf cart to drive everywhere is fun and convenient. But the friendliness of all the residents is special and the number one reason we love “The Plantation”.
We toured communities from VA to SC and found no comparison. Water sports and peaceful kayaking on uncrowded waters; year round natural beauty and lots of outdoor activities. Resident ownership and management sets it apart, with as much club and social life as you choose.
Fantastic location, great amenities, warm and friendly neighbors and an unlimited number of interests and activities to pursue. What is not to like? Albemarle Sound sailing is phenomenal.
Can’t believe we’ve been here for over 10 years. The time has gone by so fast. This is such a special place with a big heart. The beauty is only surpassed by the BIG sense of community that exist among all of those who call this HOME!
We were made welcome from the first day we looked at the community. Residents handed us their phone numbers and invited us to visit their homes. The community is so active that you can’t keep up with the amount of activities that are scheduled. We were attracted to the beauty of the property and the fact that each home is unique. The properties are affordable and the builders in the area are top notch. There are resales also for those who do not want to build.
We found the plantation in 2005 and knew from the beginning that this was the place to live. The marina and golf is what brought us here but we also realized that friendships that we have made since we arrived are now the most important. What a fun place to live.
The most appealing aspect of this community (outside of its beautiful golf course) is the way in which all of its residents pitch in to make a significant difference for the surrounding Hertford community!
My wife moved to the Plantation a year before I did, and the community support from day one made a potentially difficult situation become painless.
We bought our land at Albemarle Plantation after our first visit in 2007. We saw the well designed golf course, the beautiful Clubhouse, and the marina. We spoke to many friendly people who had moved here from across the country. We experienced fine dining at the Clubhouse, viewed the many activities available to us and explored the surrounding area. After 4 years we finally were ready to build our home and move down here. We still pinch ourselves and give thanks for our good and fortunate decision. C’mon down and we’ll be glad to show you why you will love it here too
