Ideal Living BEST Award_Pinckney Retreat
Ideal-LIVING magazine just announced the cities, towns and residential communities named as “The Best of the Best” and Pinckney Retreat was selected BEST in two categories–Best Community Gardens and Best Kayaking Community!

Hundreds of nominations were submitted to ideal-LIVING earlier this year. A special editorial committee assembled by the publication reviewed the qualifications of each nominee and selected the winners in more than 40 categories. The winners are featured both online and in the Summer 2016 Ideal Living Magazine.

“Our goal in creating this ‘Best of the Best‘ feature is to honor those areas and communities which deserve special recognition for their outstanding qualities, facilities and programs,” said ideal-LIVING’s Editor and Associate Publisher Kelly Godbey. “We hope that this special feature in our Summer 2016 edition will serve our readers by focusing on the places which offer the lifestyle enhancements that are the most important to them.”
