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 its clos proximity to Helen and Unicoi State Park and other local attractions and most importantly 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.



Recommended for: Age 55+, Pet-friendly, Adventure Seekers, Girls Getaway, Sightseeing, Families with Teenagers, Romantic Getaway





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

Just this book by it's cover!!

  • 5 of 5

Everything about this place was simply, perfect!! From the sun peaking over the mountains first thing in the morning, as to welcome you to a new day, to wine by the fire as the sun went to sleep behind the mountain...perfect!! This will definitely be a place we will visit again! The hiking and wineries were a couple of added highlights to our stay but found ourselves wanting to go back to the house to relax and unwind from the hustle and bustle of our daily lives! Thank you, Alan for providing a piece of Heaven for our enjoyment!

Please come back again soon as the views change from season to season and for that matter from day to day. We love the fall season at Cloud 9 as we live in South Florida and we don't get to see the leaves change down here. Thank you again so much. Regards Alan and Sheelyn

BEST VIEW EVER!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

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.

North Georgia Rental for Appalachian Trail Magic

  • 5 of 5

My family headed up to North Georgia to give out trail magic to Appalachian Trail thru hikers. The house provided a close location to Unicoi Gap. It is an easy drive through Helen up to the gap for those interested in doing a little hiking. Additionally, it is conveniently located to Cleveland and Mt. Yonah. There is ample space for 6 people (including the 2 bedroom guest cabin). The view from the deck and hot tube were spectacular during the unexpected cool, early May days. We'd recommend this cabin to others and look forward to staying there again in the future.

Owner's Response: Hi Brian, thank you so much for the nice 5 Star Review, we really appreciate it. We are glad the Cloud 9 location worked out for you while giving out your Trail Magic on the Appalachian Trail at Unicoi Gap. What a great tradition, we have never heard of it, its really great. We researched it and have posted some information about it below so our other guests can understand it. Hopefully it will encourage others to participate in this great tradition for Hikers. Thanks again we hope you come back to Cloud 9 again soon. Trail Magic explanation; There’s a tradition of charity unto others called Trail Magic on the Appalachian Trail and other long distance trails in the US. It takes many forms. Sometimes, people will leave cold drinks and snacks at trail crossings for thru-hikers, or they’ll pick hikers up on the road and take them home for a few days of rest and food. It’s a great tradition and one of those magical things I like about hiking trips. Regards Alan and Sheelyn Craig

I can't say enough good things. Absolutely Amazing.

  • 5 of 5

Most beautiful location surrounded by nature and incredible views. The accommodations were first class, and the attention to detail in the cabins was wonderful. Only a short 10 minute ride to Helen. We had such an amazing time, and our four legged fur baby loved it. We were especially happy that the large porch was fully enclosed so that our dog could be outside with us off leash. I highly recommend and we will definitely be back.

We enjoyed our stay at Cloud 9. It is centrally located and close to everything. Alan is very responsive and will look forward to booking with him again. The view can not be beat and there are more amenities at this rental than I have seen previously. A+++

Owner's Response: Hi Lindsay, thank you so much for the nice review, please come back to Cloud 9 again soon. The views from the decks change from season to season and indeed from day to day as you know. Our kids (9 and 10) are looking forward to going up in June, they love the Tubing on the Hooch, they get day passes, which free us up to do what we enjoy also. Thanks for taking such good care of Cloud 9 when you were there. Regards Alan and Sheelyn
