The leaves are changing to magnificent hues of oranges, yellows, and reds, the air smells fresh and crisp, and you can feel new energy around you as the world prepares for winter. In addition to pumpkin spice everything and breaking out your favorite sweater, autumn is a beautiful season to take advantage of right here at Uplands Village!
Throughout our 500-acre campus on the Cumberland Plateau in Pleasant Hill, Tennessee, we have endless amenities that allow our residents to fully experience all that the season has to offer. Our team is sharing some of these features and how you can use them to enjoy and get the most out of the autumn season and our retirement living community.
Homes in a Picturesque Setting
Because our retirement living community is spread across 500 acres, our residents’ homes are in a beautiful, natural setting. With tree-lined neighborhoods, unique architecture, and the opportunity to own their retirement homes, residents at Uplands Village are able to enjoy autumn right from the comfort and privacy of their house nestled in the Southern Appalachian Mountains.
One of our residents stated, “My home is on Lake Laura, which I view from most rooms of my home and deck, appreciating the change of seasons and…taking a cup of coffee and a book down to my lakeside patio from Spring through Fall is among my daily simple joys.”
Hiking and Walking Trails
What better way to experience autumn and all it has to offer than to get out and connect with nature? Not only does our retirement living community offer miles of connected walking, hiking, and biking trails, but our campus is also qualified as a Certified Wildlife Habitat® by the National Wildlife Federation.
Many living creatures today face the threat of a disrupted or dwindling habitat. At Uplands Village, we care about all living things, so we have made the commitment to support the wildlife in our area. Our campus serves as a haven for birds, butterflies, bees, and other beautiful animals so they can get the vital resources they need to survive and thrive. We have incorporated all of the essential elements necessary to attract and sustain wildlife, including:
- Food, including plants and supplemental feeders
- Clean water for wildlife to drink and bathe in
- Places for shelter from weather and predators
- Places for wildlife to raise their young
- Sustainable practices such as the elimination of chemical pesticides and fertilizers
Experience autumn up close by taking a leisurely stroll on one of our trails. Not only will you enjoy the cooler temperatures and beautiful colors of autumn, but you will also reap the many benefits of hiking!

Kayaking and Canoeing Opportunities
Uplands Village has numerous lakes, ponds, and streams that allow individuals to see the world from a unique perspective: from the water.
Imagine paddling your way downstream as you float under a canopy of colored leaves. The fresh, cool air keeps you comfortable as you paddle and navigate your way across a small lake, watching as the birds overhead fly further South for the winter.
Did Someone Say, “Pickleball?”
For some of us, the summer months feel too hot to enjoy outdoor recreational activities. Furthermore, spending too much time in the heat can be dangerous for our health. Fortunately, the autumn temperatures in Tennessee are perfect for getting your heart rate up with a fun and friendly game of pickleball on the Uplands Village courts!
Even if you play pickleball year-round, the weather that the autumn months bring could make the game even more enjoyable.
Uplands Villages offers countless amenities and opportunities for individuals that cater to a wide variety of interests and hobbies, enabling residents to take full advantage of each of the four seasons and live every day with purpose.
