Letter from the Developer

Fifteen years ago, I had a crazy idea borne out of a passion: as a father, I wanted my children to have the opportunity to experience the simple things that made my childhood so special and memorable to me. I called it taking time for the simple things.  

As my wife, Angie, and I watched our kids grow up in this fast-paced world, we yearned for our kids to put down the devices and turn to the outdoors to enjoy these simple pleasures. Whenever this happened, it seemed like time would stand still. Searching for these moments turned into a vision for what life could look like if we chose to integrate these simple pleasures into the very fabric of our lives. Not only did we want this for our family, but also for others that may want this same escape for their families. Out of this vision, Cloudland Station was born.

Our community has grown to nearly 80 families over these 15 years, and only now it is beginning to grow exponentially. We continue to find people who share in this vision of bringing the past into the present. In fact, new members continue to expand our understanding of what it truly means to embrace the simple things in ways we never imagined. While Cloudland Station began as a personal vision, it has truly grown into the passion of a community.

Our hope at Cloudland Station is that by  enabling families and friends to incorporate a lifetime of more simple pleasures in this beautiful natural setting,  they will leave a greater legacy for their loved ones.

Each time that we drive through the front gates into this beautiful oasis, we can't help but breathe a sigh of relief and excitement. Our family, along with many new and old friends will enjoy another walk through the valley, another game of bocci in the park, another campfire under a starry sky with neighbors, and time will stand still once again.

I invite you to visit our community and experience the serenity of time standing still at Cloudland Station. The reward is a more beautiful, healthy, and connected life; and a priceless legacy to those you love.
