About Alan Craig

Alan and Sheelyn Craig are originally from Ireland, they live in Ft Lauderdale Florida with their 2 Children Ceile (11) and Cian (10). Cloud 9 is the family's vacation home.

Why Alan Craig chose Georgia

We bought this property because of the great location and the amazing views, the cabins are bright and full of atmosphere. Our Children love to go canoeing on the rivers near by and tubing on the HOOCH. The Helen area is the closest place that we have found to actually being in Ireland where we are from originally The local people are so warm and friendly and the area has so many great restaurants and places of interest to visit. We love to hike and spend time outdoors and some of the best hiking in the North Georgia Mountains is right outside the front door of Cloud 9 on Yonah Mountain.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Definitely accurate description, excellent communications and directions to the property.First rate cleanliness and furnishings. The owner was very helpful with any questions. I would definitely recommend the home. There are wineries, village of Sautee, the Anna Ruby Falls, Dahlonega's historic village and Gold mine experience. The town of Helen is very Bavarian in atmosphere with Betty's Grocery store a must. It is hopefully in the plans for a revisit.

My Response

Thank you so much Karen for the great review for Cloud 9. We are so glad that you and your friends enjoyed it. This time of year the Mountains are really beautiful. Hopefully you and your Friends will come back soon as the view changes from season to season and as you have seen, and also from day to day, hour by hour.

Best Regards Alan and Sheelyn

Amazing views and great location to hiking, Helen & Wineries

  • 5 of 5

Stayed at Cloud 9 this past weekend with a couple girlfriends for a little getaway from the hustle & bustle of life in the City. The cabin is very cozy and comfortable and the views are breathtaking. We loved the location and proximity to Helen, hiking & wineries. As well, the cabin is well appointed with everything you would need to just stay there the whole time. We stayed in both nights and cooked and enjoyed the hot tub and the fire pit. Overall a wonderful trip. I will also note that the beds and sheets were very comfy on all the beds (incld the guest cottage)! We all slept really well. As a frequent traveler I was pleasantly surprised. They were all tempurpedic or memory foam, etc. Very Nice!

My husband and I spent our 48th anniversary at this WONDERFUL place. The cute, windy beautiful road up to it is WONDERFUL. The arrival was WONDERFUL because of our excitement to see this SPECTACULAR VIEW in reality. And opening the door and walking through that adorable house to the neat little porch to actually see that BEST VIEW EVER was WONDERFUL. We LOVED every inch of that scene. For many years we have been choosing places to stay only if the views were great; this one surpasses them all. WOWOWOWOWOWOWWOOWOW! A huge, gorgeous valley of beautiful Autumn trees right in front of you. AND in the distance there are so many miles and miles of mountain peaks, you can't count them all. And with the sweet little town of Helen only 3 miles away----well, it was the best vacation spot in the mountains we've ever had. We will be back.

Very relaxing - Amazing Views!!!

  • 5 of 5

What a great place, with one of the best views in Georgia! The main cabin has floor to ceiling windows, so anywhere you sit you look out to the mountains. Very secluded, but only a few miles to Helen. Can't wait to go back.

Beautiful View

  • 5 of 5

My friend and I loved this place. The view is gorgeous. The drive to the cabin is very easy in my opinion. I have been on lots of mountian roads and drives and this was super easy and well maintained. Definitely coming back with my husband.

I would recommend renting this cabin.

  • 5 of 5

We took a chance on renting this cabin based on the reviews that had been posted in the past. It lived up to its expectations. By far the cleanest cabin I have every rented. The view is fantastic. Quiet area and friendly neighbors. Works for both all adults or adults with children. Our dog felt at home. Plenty of parking. The pictures on VRBO do not do it justice.
