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 a new Shopping Center (Food Lion, ABC, etc...) at junction of Kentucky Springs & Rt.208. A Convenience Store/Gas/Deli, Elk Creek Store, is only 1-mile away.

At this time, our rural location makes providing internet service cost prohibitive. However your cell phone data/wireless will work fine. Another excuse to tell the 'office' you will be 'out of touch' :-)

Just out your door is a sandy beach & adjacent picnic table area. Across from the beach is an 11'x24' WET SLIP with electric connection for your use. You will need to bring any bumpers & ropes needed to secure boat & dock from damage.
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!
