Large, Lakeside Resort of Lake Tansi in East Tennessee Appeals to Retirees and Has Single Family Homes, a Marina, a Recreation Center and Much More
Situated on 5,000 wooded acres on the Cumberland Plateau just outside of Crossville in East Tennessee, Lake Tansi Village is a lakeside resort community. Development began in the 1970s and continues today. The Village has 4,000 home sites, many of which are still undeveloped, and nearly 4,000 residents. While not an age-restricted community, Lake Tansi Village is popular with vacation home owners, empty nesters and retirees. In fact, 53% of the people living here are age 45 or better.
This is a casual place and has a comfortable, rural feeling about it. Lake Tansi, 550 acres of sparkling blue water, sits in the middle of the development and has wooded neighborhoods along its shores. Most residences are ranch ramblers, although there are manufactured homes and cabins, too. Lanes are narrow and do not have sidewalks. Driveways may be long or short, covered in gravel or decorative pavers. Lakefront homes start in the low-$200,000s, while homes in the woods start at around $100,000. Please verify these prices with a Realtor as they may change, but a housing dollar generally goes a long way here. Rental cottages are available, too. HOA fees range from about $20 per month to nearly $200 per month, depending on home type.
The Village is known for its amenities. In addition to Lake Tansi, three other lakes offer opportunities for fishing and boating (although Lake Tansi is the only one to allow motorized vessels). The 100-slip Lake Tansi Marina and Bait Shop is a full service facility with licenses, fuel, food and more. The Lake Tansi beach is narrow but has a gazebo, picnic areas and barbeque pits. A lovely boardwalk around the lake provides a place for quiet contemplation.
Thunderbird Recreation Center boasts tennis courts, fine dining, a fitness center and an outdoor swimming pool. It is also where group activities and community events, including dances, potlucks and club meetings, are held. The smaller Hiawatha Community Center houses the indoor swimming pool. There is even a non-denominational church. The semi-private, 18 hole golf course meanders throughout the Village. Its pro shop has a restaurant and everything a player needs.
Lake Tansi Village has its own police force consisting of six full-time and part-time officers. A 24-hour emergency medical team and a volunteer fire department give residents further peace of mind.
Downtown Crossville is 10 minutes away and the Crossville Outlet Center, with a pet store, chain restaurants, a dinner theater, discount clothing stores and more, is nine miles away. The Catoosa Wildlife Management Area, with 82,000 acres of dense forest, is 25
miles to the northeast and is open for camping, hiking and rafting. Crossville's Cumberland Medical Center is accredited by the Joint Commission.
This area sees summer temperatures in the 80s and 90s, and winter temperatures in the 30s, 40s and 50s. On average, Lake Tansi Village receives 55 inches of rain and 14 inches of snow per year.
