Overview

Blue Ridge Lodge Rental Photos and Description

Mi Cielo Lodge, 2K Sq. Ft. 4/3 W/Game Room, 6P Hot Tub, Sreened Deck

Mi Cielo Lodge is nestled in the heart of the Blue Ridge Mountains of Northwest Georgia, just a short trip from Atlanta's Northern suburbs. Mi Cielo is not simply our vacation home, its a manifestation of our hard work, love and dreams. To us Mi Cielo is a place to exit the modernity of the world to enjoy life with each other and our children in the purity of nature. Translated from spanish, Mi Cielo means 'My Heaven'. A dear friend of ours helped us arrive at the name on a recent visit to the lodge, we thank her for that inspiration and we hope to share our little piece of heaven with you sometime very soon!

Mi Cielo is pearched high on a private mountain ridge overlooking and surrounded by densely wooded acreage with truely stunning panoramic mountain views to South, East and West. We have yet to effectively capture the stunning view to the eye on film, but will update pictures as we improve our photography skills. We promise you will find on clear days the mountains seem as if at arms reach.

When visiting Mi Cielo Lodge, you will experience lush forrest verdue visable from every room and patio. While Mi Cielo is high on the ridge that affords its magnificant views, the road is well maintained and accessible by car. Hemptown Creek runs below and can be heard flowing effortlessly on quiet stary nights.

Sit comfortably on various furnished screened decks as you take in the lush trees, magnificent forrest vurdue and stunning panoramic mountain views. Or perhaps watch the setting sun cast its vibrant colors along the mountain ridges to the South and East from the hot tub. Perhaps relax with a beverage of choice in the rocking chairs lined along the covered breeze way deck overlooking truely inspiring mountain views. If that doesn't fit the mood, try a pleasant swing or head inside to enjoy the amenities the lodge has to offer.

Among the amenities are a fully appointed kitchen with island and eating area with seating for eight, relaxing great room with wood burning fireplace and HDTV with surround sound, a second family room in guest house also with HDTV with surround sound and Wii gaming console. Additionally, in our guest house you can enjoy a wood burning fire place, pool table, air hockey, dart board, mini-bar table and clothes washer and dryer.

Mi Cielo comfortably sleeps a maximum of eight people. With 3BR & 2BA in the Main Lodge and a 1BR & 1BA below the game room in the Guest Lodge.

Reminiscent of the adirondack mountain towns of Northern New York visited often in our youth, the quaint mountain town of Blue Ridge is literally minutes away, as are numerous access points to Blue Ridge Lake including Blue Ridge Marina. The quaint charm of downtown shops, eateries and activities provide a truely memorable experience for individuals and families. Of course the area is well known for its year round seasonal produce strawberries, blue berries, peaches, apples and of course beautiful fall mountain foliage.

Why Owner/Property Manager chose Blue Ridge

Mi Cielo Lodge is nestled in the heart of the Blue Ridge Mountains of Northwest Georgia, just a short trip from Atlanta's Northern suburbs. Mi Cielo is not simply our vacation home, its a manifestation of our love and dreams. To us Mi Cielo is a place to exit the modernity of world to enjoy life with each other and our children in nature. Translated from spanish, Mi Cielo means my heaven, we hope to share our little piece of heaven with you!

What makes this lodge unique

Lodge rests high on a private mountain ridge surrounded by dense forests. While home is in mid 1970's development, cabins are set far apart on lots of several acres. Our lodge was built in the 1970's and complete renovated with modern kitchen and amenities in 2007. Forests are dense offering wonderful privacy. Home hits high on our private mountain ridge and offers inspiring 180 degree mountain views from the south east to south west. Great proximity to downtown Blue Ridge, Lake BR access points, fishing and more. Owners sincerely care about the quality of your experience. We make every effort to keep the house clean, to ensure all amenities are operating correctly, and that the home is generally organized and thoughtful for your stay. In return we simply ask that you enjoy your time, that you take care with our belongings and that you report issues.

Renter Beware!

  • 1 of 5
Only rent this cabin if you’re fine with giving up your security deposit. We rented this cabin for a relaxing girls weekend. When we arrived to the cabin there were busted out window screens and broken stairs leading to the entrance. We looked forward to using the hot tub. When we turned on the jets a gray foam bubbled up making it unusable to us.The owner was very quick to respond in renting the cabin, but 2 weeks after our stay when I realized our deposit had not been refunded I tried to contact the owners. Neither returned my phone calls, but one did eventually respond by text which was very frustrating. The owner stated that he would not be returning our full deposit due to 3 coffee cups left in sink, a cover left off of the indoor screened porch seating and a dark sludge in the hot tub. I’m thankful that I took photos of the screen and steps, I only regret not taking a photo of the hot tub foam. The owner sent a 14 page instruction manual that I printed and kept on a clip board, so that we would be aware of all instructions and guidelines from the owner..which I feel we followed very closely. We have rented many properties through VRBO and this has been the worst experience by far. It’s actually the only bad experience we’ve had- our security deposits have always been returned in a very timely manner. The owner told me that VRBO would not allow me to leave a review. If you are reading this review the owner was clearly being dishonest. Save your money and headache and rent somewhere else.

Owner's Response: Dear Renter and Future Renters:
We have had an unfortunate experience with a disgruntled renter and received this factually incorrect tirade in return for all our efforts to accommodate. As ALL commenting renters prior have stated in their FIVE STAR reviews, it is an awesome place, it is well maintained, it is stocked with high quality items and we are honest, decent and caring people with whom to do business.
The renter had the lodge on 11/20-11/23/2014 and were harassing us for a complete / total refund of security deposit the day they left the property which was prior to our ability to verify that there was nothing wrong/missing in the home. We were immediately suspicious of renters behavior and expected to find problems as we later realized were warranted. As described in the rental agreement and house instructions, security deposit takes 30 days to process. This is true because our cleaner sends us a monthly invoice for cleaning service and rental stay reports letting us know what parties to refund. We described this process in all documents, rental lease, via text, and telephone conversations. Renter paid a $95 security deposit and were paid a refund of $55 on 12/19/14 within our stated 30 day refund policy. I withheld $40 because of renter actions and in-actions as follows:

Issue 1: In conflict with rental instructions/agreement left a sink full of dirty dishes, which alone would not result in withholding of security deposit, but we ask that renters load the dish washer and start so that cleaner can turn the house quickly for incoming renters.

Issue 2: In conflict with rental agreement removed coverings from outdoor furniture and not replaced on departure. In effort to keep cushions colorful and dry for next renters we require renters to replace outdoor furniture coverings, especially when such actions or in-actions could spoil the experience of the next renter.

Issue 3: On Saturday 11/21/14 renter called stating that the spa would not heat. Renter followed my guidance as written in lodge instructions and spa heated allowing enjoyment that evening as texts confirm. Unfortunately someone in the group wearing an extra large bikini bottom left that soaking wet garment on the floor of master bedroom leaving a water stain which we found on our arrival. Possible urination and spilled drinks in spa resulted in need for drain&sanitize.

For all this I charged renter $40, mostly for my time cleaning the spa of it's disgusting brown sludge.

AWESOME Place

  • 5 of 5
I have traveled to many VRBO accommodations and this is one of the most beautiful places I have been to. The view was spectacular, pictures could not capture it. The house was very clean and had everything you could want and/or need. We loved the game room. The owners were wonderful and very helpful. I can't think of anything negative to say about our visit. A++++++

Owner's Response: Bill: Matt and I are delighted that you enjoyed your stay at the lodge so much! Matt said he spoke with you about how much you loved the lodge views; I am so pleased that you had a terrific stay and enjoyed the relaxation and mountain views so much. I think you are correct, the images we posted really don't capture the views the same way as the human eye. We've contemplated having a professional photgrapher take some images for our VRBO listing, to provide a better example of the typical views. We know you live out in Texas, but if you ever get back to Georgia please consider staying with us again.

Best Wishs,
Kathy & Matt

P.S. - We found the belongings left in the lodge and will send them later in the month, per discussion. Our cleaner secured the item and we will forward when we get to the lodge again, end of July.

Great escape!

  • 5 of 5
We recently stayed at Mi Cielo, and I totally understand why it's named that. We definitely plan on going back as soon as possible, hoping to make this our little getaway. The home is nicely furnished and the kitchen is well-equipped and stocked. If you forget a spice, they'll probably have it. I plan on bringing some to leave behind next time so I can contribute. The porch and breezeway is where you want to be. The breezeway takes you over to the gameroom and another guest area. Loved having it separated, bc if you want quiet and relaxing, but your kids want to be loud and play air hockey, both win! Beds have high quality linens and the rooms are nicely furnished. We really enjoyed our time there! Thanks to the owners for quickly responding when needed.

Awesome!!! Fully Loaded Cabin with Gorgeous Views!

  • 5 of 5
The cabin is immaculately maintained and beautifully decorated. The gorgeous views are made even better with tons of outdoor seating-from rocking chairs to the screened in porch couch and cushioned chairs. The kitchen was stocked to the hilt. Rooms were cozy and beds were comfortable. The guest house game room was a big hit!! Loved playing darts, pool and air hockey. We will definitely be back to enjoy your slice of Blue Ridge heaven. Thank you.
