Cloudland Station’s master plan has been designed to facilitate and to celebrate the enjoyment of simple things. Every amenity created is hand crafted and reflects an historic aesthetic such that Cloudland Station hearkens back to yesteryear, while still embracing the modern conveniences and comforts of our 21st century.
To more fully understand Cloudland Station and our passion for simple things, join us for a pretend morning walk through just a small portion of our vast masterplan…
First, begin in the village square with a cup of coffee at the coffee shop (a one room schoolhouse turned into a coffee house and lending library).
After relaxing on the coffee house deck and taking in the long vista view of Lake Angela, head down to Mill Creek only a few steps away.
Cross the rustic cedar bridge by the old spring house and climb up in the grand american gothic style tree house, built by famous Animal Planet celebrity, Pete Nelson.
Enjoy the sound of the rustling waters for a bit, then head up the creek path a few steps for a short rope ferry ride across Wishing Bridge pond.
Continue along the creek path towards the mountain, crossing the swinging rope bridge, and passing the community garden.
Proceed until you reach a meadow called Orchard Park. Here you can try your hand at bocci or croquet, or sit just on the swinging bench next to the large brick patio and fire pit.
From there, take the path toward the foot of the mountain. Visit the 215 year old Cherokee Chief’s cabin, and contemplate the ancient history and story telling that took place there for many years.
Walk down behind the cabin to see the abundance of water flowing out of a small cave spring and peruse all the wild flowers along the stream bed.
Now cross the creek and follow the path to the beautiful, bridal veil water falls known as Peacock Falls.
Take the path across Firefly Cove to the country crossroads to enjoy a treat at the water mill and sweet shoppe.
After enjoying an ice cream sandwich or your favorite cold beverage, head north through Firefly Cove to our 165 yr old, renovated recreation barn for some ping pong, human foos ball, or basketball.
A little further up the hill and you will arrive at Lantern Cove where you will enjoy the old fashion swimming’ hole and rope swing.
Finally, just above the swimmin’hole, take the rest of the morning to relax, poolside, at our ridge-side, saline infinity edge pool. The view here is nothing short of spectacular.
And that is a morning stroll at Cloudland Station.
