Lake Anna townhome description

Tara Shores is a small 16 unit community (4 groups of 4), in a quiet rural setting, on a large inlet/cove on the Main Lake (public side). Conveniently located in Louisa County close to the main travel route’s, Marina’s, Dining a short drive away and Shopping nearby in the Town of Louisa or Fredericksburg.
Just out your door is a sandy beach w/ volleyball net & adjacent picnic table area. Across from the beach is a 9'x24' covered boat slip w/ electric lift for your use (some restrictions apply, please inquire).
Enjoy the lake view from the deck or screened porch with quiet starry nights that have 'big sky' views with an occasional 'moo' from the cows down the street. Leisurely walks on the Community grounds or very low traffic access roads. Tara Shores is near the end of a 'no outlet ' peninsula, half of which is undeveloped farmland. The large cove location also offers greatly reduced boat traffic.
Take a break from the hustle & bustle while relaxing at our great location!
