If you find yourself sitting at your desk and dreaming of spending more time with your family in gorgeous locales, then it could be time for you to consider investing in a vacation home. Buying a second home, of course, is not a walk in the park for most of us. It takes time, planning, preparation, and a lot of thought before you can make your dream of a second home a reality.
We can help. Here at Cloudland Station, we’ll transport you back to a time without worries and stress — a time without deadlines and quarterly reports.
Our community is nestled into the mountains of Northern Georgia — just 15 minutes from Chattanooga — and it would make for the perfect location of your second home when you live in Birmingham.

Whether you choose to build your dream home with us, buy a second home, or find a summer home, Cloudland Station has just what you need. We’re a “Legacy Community,” and we’re excited to help you create your own family legacy when you purchase a second home at Cloudland Station. Go ahead and make the drive up from Birmingham — you can get a discounted two-night stay to try it out for yourself.
Read our blog today to see if you’re ready to buy a vacation home and be sure to contact us with any questions.
1. You Have Enough Income
There’s a reason we’ve listed this as No. 1 on this list. If you don’t have enough disposable income or money in savings, then it’s unwise to build a house, invest in new home construction, or buy a second property. You want your summer home — we get it. But spend this time saving more money and looking at new home designs or house building plans instead of taking on monthly costs you can’t afford. You’ll enjoy your second home much more if you’re financially stable.
2. You Have Enough Time
What good is a second home if you don’t get to spend time there? Cloudland Station is special because time seems to stop when you’re here. From events to hiking to the picturesque landscape, time stands still — which is just what you want when trying to get away from the hustle and bustle of Birmingham. Look at how much time you could spend at your second home each month, summer, or year, and determine if buying a vacation home is a wise move.
3. You Want More Experiences With Family And Friends
Perhaps you’re an empty nester who is trying to cultivate more experiences with your family and friends. If this sounds like you, then buying a second home could be perfect! It’s important to find a new home community your family will love to visit, of course, but buying a second home, vacation home, or summer home could be instrumental in creating spaces to make new memories.
4. You Want To Use Your Creative Energy
If you find yourself wanting an outlet for your creative energy, then working with custom home builders could be perfect for you (especially if you’ve met all the other qualifications on this list). What better way to flex your creativity and spend time with family than by looking through house building plans and building your dream home?
5. You Crave A Change To The Ordinary
Chances are high that you could always need a vacation. If you find yourself time and time again wanting to get out of Birmingham and to experience something new, then a summer home, second home, or vacation home at Cloudland Station could be perfect.
Did this list get you excited at the prospect of a second home in Northern Georgia? We don’t blame you. Buying a vacation home is an exhilarating, hopeful, inspiring idea — and you could do it. Here at Cloudland Station, we have lots for sale, house building plans, and Southern Living-inspired architectural guidelines.
Take back your time and create new memories with old friends, new friends, and family alike when you buy or build a second home at Cloudland Station.
