A morning walk with friends down a creekside trail. Teaching a child how to bait their first hook. An afternoon game of checkers with friends at the general store. Simple things are often enjoyed in the stillness of the great outdoors, under the lights of a starry sky, or gathered around the home hearth with a crackling fire. Simple things also have a way of exercising our bodies and minds in fun and adventurous ways. Long walks and long conversations strengthen us. Not only are we enriched by these things, but we find connection in them as well. By participating in activities together, we inherently imply to those we are with that they matter to us.
Cloudland Station's mission is to foster beautiful, healthy, connected living. By fulfilling its mission, Cloudland Station creates a lifetime of beautiful moments - a rich collection of simple pleasures for every member to treasure.
We are excited to announce a unique collaboration with Cloudland Station and Harrison Design to introduce a new neighborhood to our community, The Courtyards at Mill Creek. The first home in this neighborhood, the Mountain Laurel Showcottage presented by Atlanta Homes & Lifestyles Magazine, recently broke ground and is in the building process. Follow along both here on our page dedicated to this project, as well as our social media channels, to see the development of this special home.
What does it look like to create a place that encourages people to truly take time for the simple things? This was the driving question that led us to three overarching characteristics essential to achieving our mission: beautiful, healthy, and connected living. This is the filter for everything we do at Cloudland Station.
These characteristics formed the masterplan for not only the feel of Cloudland Station, but in a more practical sense, the look of Cloudland Station. We had to look no further than the past to be inspired by beautiful rural villages and their surrounding provinces. Historically, these were the places that embraced the simple things. Villages and their surrounding provinces evolved with the stories of people coming together to build a life. The style of architecture reflected more than a single era, but transitioned over hundreds of years.
The result of our mission of beautiful, healthy, and connected living placed in the context of this historic realism creates our breakout masterplan: Stories Reimagined. This masterplan is a true oasis in our modern world, calling us into a life of taking time for the simple things.

Our longterm plan for Cloudland Station.
Taking time to enjoy the simple things harkens back to a time of true neighborliness, where your community included the people you lived close to. At Cloudland Station, we strive to create intentional opportunities for community life to flourish. Whether it's gathering around a fire pit, a large community table potluck or evenings spent on a neighbor's porch, our hope is to find meaningful ways to connect to those around us.
Cloudland Station boasts a plethora of recreational activities, both natural to the land (trails and lakes) and man-made (recreation barn and infinity-edge pool) for family and friends to enjoy. These amenities are a priority in our community, and we pride ourselves on creating an abundance of opportunities for the community to enjoy being active together.
Our traditions cultivate our intentional and authentic community. In addition to the regular rhythms of time spent with friends and neighbors, we host annual events to bring everyone together. These events include The Firefly Ball, a Fourth of July Celebration, and men's and women's retreat weekends.
While still in it's growing phase, Cloudland Station is invested in creating a prosperous agri-hood, which includes gardens, orchards, and vineyards as part of Early Moon Farms. The farm's charming Plucky Peacock farmstand provides freshly picked produce as well as a pick-and-pay honor system enabling the enjoyment of the freshest of farm to table produce straight from the gardens.
Distinct neighborhoods make up the community of Cloudland Station. Each neighborhood has a unique look and feel following the masterplan of preservation through the eras.
