The Shores is a private gated community located on the eastern shore of the 110 acre Rainbow Lake. The main entry to the Shores is located just south of the intersection of White Mountain Blvd and Neils Hansen Lane. There are 188 residential lots, sixty-one of which have water frontage. 24 of the lots are in a section of the community called Rainbow Cove, a group of attached homes with its own private park area and dock. In February, 2021, the The Shores at Rainbow Lake HOA passed a CC&R amendment restricting rentals to a minimum of 30 days.
Our community has three boat docks that provide owners and their guests access to Rainbow Lake. The biggest motor allowed on the lake is 9.9 HP so there is no fast boating and the lake is quiet and peaceful. Most homeowners with lake frontage have their own private docks with fishing or pontoon boats. There is a tennis court and a basketball court available for the homeowners and their guests, and additional community recreational facilities are planned.
Common areas are well landscaped and well maintained. A beautiful feature is the dual waterfall on the west side of Rainbow View Drive about halfway into the community. The community CC&Rs and bylaws prohibit building that is not consistent with The Shores architectural guidelines and also prohibit the long-term parking of RV vehicles and boats on homeowners' lots. Much thought and care has gone into making sure that the natural beauty of our community will be protected.
