Our Vision For This Unique Weiss Lake Property
The Bluffs is a large gated residential development located in Cedar Bluff, Alabama, in the foothills of the
Appalachian Mountain Range. The development is actually on a mountain peninsula which extends into the 30,000 acre,
52 mile-long Weiss Lake. This unusual location allows the development of each home site such that all have a water
view, with most also having a view of the surrounding mountains.
The Bluffs has been labeled a “Sustainable Living” development due to its
emphasis on community gardens, orchards, and other sources of locally grown food. The orchards and gardens for
The Bluffs originated many years ago, when the then-owners used the rich flat-land soil and adjacent
spring-fed creek to nurture the gardens and orchard which surrounded their house. The surviving pecan, pear
and apple trees from that orchard have been rehabilitated and supplemented with 28 compatible varieties of
apple, peach, plum, pear, and fig trees. Additionally, blueberry bushes and grape and muscadine vines have
been planted and arbors constructed.
The garden has also been restored and expanded and an irrigation system put in place which utilizes the clean
clear waters of an adjacent spring-fed stream. This year’s garden has been planted with a variety of vegetables and
complementary plants, the latter providing assistance in natural insect control as well as flowers for cutting.
The general atmosphere and all of the amenities of The Bluffs seem to suggest a less
urban, family-centric, friendly lifestyle. Fresh air; entrancing lake and mountain views; walking and riding
trails; gated lakeside picnic areas and docks; private fishing lakes----all contributing to the
“Sustainable Living” lifestyle. All of this comes with comprehensive building guidelines and a
homeowners association to protect the investments of home and home site owners and allow their input about the
smart growth of the neighborhood.
