Fawn Lake, VA. is a growing, vibrant development with a strong sense of community located 18 miles west of Fredericksburg, VA. There is easy access to Washington DC, Richmond and Charlottesville, VA.
Fawn Lake is missing a neighborhood church. Our community of over 1,200 homes, includes a balanced mix of younger and older generations.
