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 Cleveland

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

The pictures can’t do justice to this stunning view. You’ll just have to go see for yourself. The cabin was wonderful. My mother in law now wants whatever sheets were used on the beds. She fell in love with them! The kitchen is very well stocked with cooking equipment. Everything was very clean. We enjoyed the hot tub very much. It was a great experience. If you are visiting Cleveland or Helen Georgia soon, you need to stay here. I can’t wait to go back!!

Owner's Response: Hi Kattie, thank you very much for this great review. So glad your Mother In Law liked the bed sheets, my wife is very picky about our bed linens, we use the same ones on our beds in our home in Ft Lauderdale. We hope you and your Family will return to Cloud 9 soon. The views change from month to month. Our children love the summer months at Cloud 9 so they can go tubing on the hooch, which is great fun for the adults also. Thanks for taking such good care of our little piece of Heaven in the North Georgia Mountains, while you were there. Regards Alan and Sheelyn Craig

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.

Great vacation

  • 4 of 5

The view is amazing. The house was very comfortable and nice. Lots of convenient to stores, hiking, Helen, and wineries.

We are planning to come back with the kids. The only part that wasn't great was the oven door was broken and didn' heat. But we managed and it wasn't a huge deal.

Beautiful, peaceful, away from it all, but close enough to activities. Perfect for the family!

Cloud 9 was a perfect. The view was amazing from every point in the house. The kitchen was well-stocked and we cooked all our meals without a hitch. Beds were so comfy I couldn't get far reading the amazing first-edition classics we picked up at the bookstore at the bottom of the mountain. Helen is just a ways down the road. Unicoi State Park is as well and the entire family enjoyed the short hike to Anna Ruby Falls. It was cold during our stay, so we enjoyed the fire pit and hot tub on the deck. Truly a special place. We hope to come back soon for a longer stay!

Amazing Spring Break Stay

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I traveled here for spring break and it was absolutely perfect! The cabins exceeded all necessary amenities and the views were even more amazing in person. This is a perfect location for those looking to hike - all of our desired hiking trails were within an hour of the cabin. I also highly recommend hiking the Yonah Mountain trail, which the cabin is a very short distance from. The overlook from the top is breathtaking. The hot tub was one of my favorite features, especially after a long day of hiking. One of my all time favorite trips!

You might also enjoy the Tubing on the Hooch during the summer months, this is also one our favorite things to do as a family during the summer months when we visit the mountains. the views are also changing from month to month and from season to season. We hope yo come back soon, thanks again. Regards Alan and Sheelyn
