Helen cabin description
When you really need a break, come and spend some time in Cloud 9, which is about 3 miles from Helen. However don’t forget to bring your Parachute, as you will need it to get back down to earth when you are ready to leave. You might also want to bring a camera, to take pictures of one of the best Views, if not 'THE Best' in the Blue Ridge Mountains.
When the sun sets it might be time to make a cocktail and jump in the Sunken Hot Tub with its Outdoor Fireplace for a little romance, or you can come inside and play a game of Pool, or a little Table Tennis and maybe watch a movie from the Library on the DVD players with state of the art Surround Sound by the Fire. The Kids will also enjoy the Computer Games, Game Cube or Play Station 2 on the Plasma screen TV. There’s also Direct Satellite TV with TiVO in both buildings.
The Main Cabin also has High Speed Internet Access, plus a Wireless connection for your laptop, to check your emails (If you really have to). Cloud 9 sleeps a total of 10 people, 6 in the main Cabin (2 on Sofa Bed in LivingRoom), and 4 in the separate Guest Cottage (2 on Futon in Living Room) at the other end of the deck, the Cottage also has a fully equipped Kitchenette with Microwave, Coffee Machine etc, (The buildings are connected by Intercom, so you can check in on the Kids or the Grandparents).
The main Cabin has 2 Bedrooms with Queen beds, and sleeps 2 more on the Leather Sleeper Sofa in the living room, which also has a fantastic View of the North Georgia Mountains. The Kitchen in the main house is fully equipped with everything you might need with new appliances. There are bathrooms with showers on both levels and Buildings (all linens are provided), just bring your toothbrushes. Bring the whole family, including the Dog, and see for yourselves why everyone wants to spend time on Cloud 9.
Note; Please check our Calendar for availability before making a reservation request as we do keep it up to date, thanks.

My wife and I and another couple stayed here for a long week end. It had most every thing we needed. We cook all but 1 meal at the cabin which saved us loads of money. Also there were plenty of things to do at this wonderful cabin, from sitting in the hot tub to playing pool, it kept our wives out Helen, which saved us a ton of money as well! There was nothing better than starting the day with the beautiful sunrises that you see every morning from the back deck. Closing each evening while sitting on the deck with a nice cigar and galss of Hennessey just completes the week end. The only difficulties we had was the road getting to the cabin is a one lane dirt road that our cars did not care for. We made it with no problem, however I would suggest to anyone who goes here in the winter or rainy season to take a truck. I will defiantly be returning to the cabin in the near future. Thank you for a great weekend!!

Manager response: Thanks for taking the time to review our Cabin. Although Cloud 9 is high on the top of the Mountain in the clouds and the laneway up is pretty steep, it is well maintained, you would have to be very unlucky to have a problem getting up it in a car, however it is the mountains and an SUV or a Truck would handle it better, in the 3 years that we have owned this property, we have never heard of anyone having a problem, when it snows the road is cleared imediately with a snow plough. Thanks again for the feedback, we look forward to having you back to Cloud 9. Alan
BEST VIEW EVER!!!!!!
BEST VIEW EVER!!!!!!
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.

Spectacular Mountain View
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.

We are so glad that you and your friends enjoyed it. This time of year in the Mountains is really beautiful.

We really enjoyed our recent first time vacation at cloud 9. My main priority was to have an amazing view and that was met beyond any expectation. One word "WOW". Hadn't played ping pong in years, what a great workout. It was in the 30's two of the three nights we were there and made the hot tub that much better. It actually got to 105 degrees, unlike the ones at hotels. The cold weather actually changed the color of the trees each morning we were there. Really had wished 2nd bedroom was not a loft, mainly for privacy, but was still quite nice. We recommend Cloud 9 to anyone wanting a amazing view and a cozy place to relax from everyday worries. Thanks Alan for everything :))

My family thoroughly enjoyed our short mountain getaway! Coming from the Metro Atlanta area, it was close enough so we didn't have to make a long drive but far enough away that we really felt as if we were "getting away from it all." The cabins were quite comfortable and more than adequately furnished. Of course, the view was spectacular and changed from one hour to the next. Our small grandsons were fascinated by the view of the mountains and spent a lot of time on the deck in the comfy rocking chairs. I would love to make a return trip for a longer stay!

We had a great time at Cloud 9! The view looking out into the the mountains is amazing. The cabin in designed with this view in mind - large windows from the living room provides a great view from inside or outside. The gas fireplace kept us warm and the beds were comfortable. We didn't have any issues with the driveway or the road up the mountain (we have a jeep but the family visited us in a minivan no problem). The location is great because it's very private (road leading up the mountain is gated) but you're still not far from grocery stores, restaurants, or downtown Helen. Cabin very clean and well maintained. If you have a dog, they can run around on the large wrap-around porch (just make sure they can't escape through the slats!) so it's pet friendly. Good hiking and some off-roading all nearby. I had been serving overseas in the desert for nearly a year, and it was amazing to come back and spend some time with my wife up in the mountains. Highly recommend. We would love to come back!

This had to be the most beautiful place we have ever stayed. The view is breathtaking and the cabin is cozy, clean and has everything you need except the groceries! The guest cabin on the side made our sons week with the pool table. We didnt use the hot tub because we were lucky enough to be one of the few to enjoy four inches of snow which the locals said was a rare occasion but how lovely it was. It was close to the few places that allow winter fishing and only five minutes from Helen. We were really lucky to have found this wonderful cabin in the sky! Our dogs loved the snow and the guest dog that came to visit them everyday. very nice pinned in porch for dogs to enjoy the sun.

Manager response: Hi Amy, thank you sooo much for the great review, we are glad that Cloud 9 met your expectations and that you all had a great time, you even got to play in the Snow, we have owned CLOUD 9 for about 8 years and our Family has never seen the snow up there, our Children are 5 and 7 hopefully they will get to see it one day, which would be a huge treat for them as we live in Florida, thanks again for taking such great care of our little bit of Heaven while you were there, hopefully you will return soon, it would be great to have you back some time, however we cant guarantee that you will see the Snow again ! Regards Alan and Sheelyn Craig and Family

The view from this cabin can not be beat! Comfortable cabin with a separate place for the kids (if you have to take them). Gated community with gravel road 8/10 of a mile up the mountain. Lots of waterfalls in the area. Wineries to visit. Hiking trails. Close to Helen but out of the crowds. Enjoyed our stay here. Pet friendly.
