A Home Among Nature
Surrounded by small farms, fields and woodlands, the Uplands Village campus is set on more than 500 acres of tree-lined streets, serene lakes and walking and hiking trails 2,000 feet high on the Cumberland Plateau in Tennessee. Does this sound like a dream come true? Just imagine living the rest of your life here on top of the Appalachian Mountains, with beautiful vistas as far as the eyes can see. The Cumberland Plateau offers state parks, lush forests, scenic rivers and countless opportunities to enjoy nature and history. It’s a unique and cherished place to call home!
You don’t have to leave our campus to experience unique ecosystems, including wetlands, streams, a pond and two lakes. Many residents enjoy canoeing, kayaking, fishing and bird watching on and around Lake Laura and Lake Alice. To coexist with local wildlife and maintain our pristine waters, the Uplands board passed a policy prohibiting use of pesticides and herbicides by staff and vendors. Residents are strongly encouraged to eliminate their own uses of toxic chemicals to prevent runoff into our waterways. We are a green community and continually search for new ways to be good stewards of our environment.
