Cloudrest is an odd mixture of architectural styles, with buildings like strangler vines, built on top of older structures. The oldest of all ruins in the city, and in a few isolated spots throughout the Summerset, are made of coral, which must have been carried many miles away from the sea. The material and the style of the ruins strongly suggest that the Sload may have once counted Summerset as a part of their kingdom of Thras.
- Mollimo of Cloudrest, an Altmer member of the House Telvanni, is from this city.
- A king ruled over Cloudrest during the Third Era.
