The Bluffs - Weiss Lake Property Gated Community
The Bluffs is located in the foothills of the Cumberland Plateau section of the Appalachian Mountains in
Northeast Alabama's historic Cherokee County. The development is located in Cedar Bluff, Alabama, 25 minutes from
Rome, Georgia and near the rugged gorges of the Little River Canyon.
The Bluffs is a 1200 acre gated residential development located in Cedar Bluff, Alabama, in the foothills of the
Appalachian Mountain Range. Our development is actually on a mountain peninsula which extends into the 30,000 acre,
52 mile-long Weiss Lake. This unusual location allows us to develop each of our home sites 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.
The garden spot has been restored and an irrigation system put in place utilizing the clean clear waters of the
nearby creek. Residents of The Bluffsto use the with natural supplements providing a boost to the naof The
