Large Lakeside Resort of Lake Tansi in Rolling 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. Lanes are narrow and do not have sidewalks. Most residences are ranch ramblers, although there are some manufactured homes and cabins, too. Driveways may be long or short, covered in gravel or decorative paver bricks.
Home prices start in the low-$100,000s. 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 (and should not be confused with Lake Tansi rentals in other areas along the lake). HOA fees are about $245 per month.
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, several restaurants, 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.

Its largest cities, Memphis and Nashville, have hosted the best in both genres from Muddy Waters and B. B. King to Johnny Cash and Dolly Parton.

Why are HOA Fees So High in 55+ Communities?
HOA fees (homeowner association fees) come in a wide range, and each 55+ community has a different set of guidelines for determining its HOA fees. Generally, the more amenities, the higher the fee. And often older communities have higher fees because as a development ages, maintenance costs increase. Most communities have bylaws stating how high HOA fees can be raised each year. When looking for a 55+ community, always ask about the fees. How much are they? What do they cover? How many increases have there been in the last 10 years? If the developer or sales staff will not tell you, visit on a Saturday when people are out and about and ask a resident or two about the HOA fees.
