Sunset Bay Reviews

3.8 / 5 (14 reviews)
"Sunset Bay in Sharps Chapel, TN is absolutely gorgeous. The water is pristine and it is very peaceful. The HOA is diligent to keep the neighborhood safe and clean. This is the perfect retirement community to build your downsized, retirement home. The club house has a pool and moderate gym. As a resident, you are free to use all the facilities. And simply let them know anytime you are having guests at your home so they can be aware. The tennis courts have the pickleball nets set up all the time so it's no hassle to get the pickleball game started...perfect active senior living! It's a dark sky community as well. So quiet, peaceful and remote. Get away from it all at this great retirement community.

"We were looking for a "relaxed" community to retire in Tennessee. Sunset Bay is totally money oriented. Good for real estate people. Very hard on "retired" people. Our life as well as others is very restricted!"
