TEA Map & Properties List

The Truesdale Estates Association (TEA) Map is available here.

It shows the boundaries of the TEA deeded lake rights area which is comprised of houses on the following roads:

  • Truesdale Lake Drive (all houses),
  • Salem Lane (all houses),
  • Lower Salem Road (all houses except #37 and #39 Lower Salem Road which were built outside of the original TEA boundaries and after the association was formed), and
  • Stewart Road.
  • The TEA also has two houses on Main Street (#90 and #106) that back up to Lower Salem Road. Also two houses with Bouton Road addresses (#70 Bouton Road – backs up to Lower Salem and #114 Bouton Road – backs up to Stewart Rd.)
  • In addition, we have several households/properties on Boway (addresses #2-#8, #138, #142, #146, #150) and 1 Country Lane (corner of Boway/Country Lane).
  • Houses within the TEA boundaries comprise the Regular Membership “deeded lake rights” of TEA.

For a complete list of the TEA properties in the TEA deeded lake rights area (including tax map, block and lot numbers), please visit this page.

Note each household is only a member in one association. TEA Members are not members of TLPOA or vice versa. The association is totally dependent on the property address.

TEA Beach [Lifeguard and Beach Schedule]

The TEA beach and fishing dock is located on Truesdale Lake Drive on the southeast shore of Lake Truesdale. The beach property, including the fishing dock, is private. Only TEA Regular Members and accompanied guests are permitted to use the TEA beach. No boat storage is allowed at the beach property, with the exception of the lifeguard boat.

TEA Beach Keys

Deeded TEA members in good standing can request TEA Beach Keys using the form here. It asks for your name, address, and email. It also asks for your personal Beach Key Code that was included with your most recent TEA Dues notice. You will need this unique code if your mailing address differs from your TEA household address. That is so the TEA beach committee can verify you are a member before sending a key out. Any questions, please contact us.

TEA Party Rules

Any Member or Associate Member can submit a request for a party at the beach. See Party Rules for details.

TEA Boat Storage Policy

TEA members can store boats at the TEA-owned lot at the corner of Gilbert Street and Lake Shore Drive. All boats (whether kept on your property or at the TEA boat storage lot) must have a valid Truesdale Lake boat sticker. Boats stored at this lot without a sticker will be removed. No boats (except the lifeguard boat) are permitted at the beach property.
