About the property

Lodge Cabin, 2,000 Sq.Ft. 4Bed 3Bath Guest House, Game Rm, Hot Tub, Screen 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 the perfect place to exit the pace of the modern world to enjoy life with our family & friends in the wholesomeness of nature's beauty.

Translated from Spanish, Mi Cielo means 'My Heaven'. A dear friend of ours helped us arrive at the name on a early 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 perched high on a private mountain ridge overlooking stunning unobstructed views of the Blue Ridge Mountains and surrounded by densely wooded private acreage around the house.

The roads are well maintained with ample gravel and grading, passable with most any vehicle year round. As images indicate we get light snow in the winters. Pets welcomed.

It's our earnest goal to ensure all our guests enjoy an easy booking & payment process, quality stay experience, cozy mountain home comforts and stunning views.

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

Sit comfortably on various furnished screened decks as you take in the lush trees, magnificent forest verdure 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 truly 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 3 BR & 2 BA in the Main Lodge and a 1 BR & 1 BA 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 truly memorable experience for individuals and families. Of course the area is well known for its exceptional fishing and year round seasonal produce strawberries, blue berries, peaches, apples and of course beautiful fall mountain foliage.

What makes this cabin 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.

Stunning views, beautiful, cozy cabin

  • 5 of 5

We came to the Mountains of North Georgia for the first time from Upstate NY to stay at MiCielo Lodge. We found both the cabin and the area unequalled. We stayed in April on our spring break. The weather was beautiful and we enjoyed our Easter holiday at the cabin. This cabin is very cozy, and well appointed. The kitchen is fully stocked, there is nothing you could want for. New apppliances, nice gas stove, brand new washer and dryer. Plenty of room in the three queen bedrooms. Having 3 full baths was a major asset. We loved the rockers on the breezeway with such gorgeous mountain views. My 13 year old son chose to sleep on the pull out sofa in the guest lodge and actually commented on how comfortable it was. Unlike the reviews below, we had no problems at all with the Wi-Fi. I worked remotely and had no issues with speed, even with my son constantly streaming. We also found the hot tub/spa to be in perfect working order. No issues at all with heating it up to 102 (104 is too hot!). The owners have equipped the place for families/teens. With pool and air hockey, dart board, stereos, Wi-Fi, all kinds of games, TV's and electronics. There are a huge collection of movies, c-d's, games of all kinds. I loved that the adults could have space while the kids could enjoy the guest quarters/game room. It made for a great vacation for all.

The town of Blue Ridge is not to be missed. Great shopping, restaurants and fun things to do. We also enjoyed the Blue Ridge Railway and Adventure Trails horseback riding. Joe's BBQ was yummy. Black Sheep had wonderful, upscale dining. Any thing you could need is very accessible. Ingles grocery, home depot, Walmart all within a quick drive. But once you are at the cabin, you feel like you are away from it all!

We were able to enjoy the outdoor fire-pit one evening. The benches around the pit provide adequate seating but renters might consider bringing a few folding chairs for easier-on-the-butt relaxation.

We also found that the welcome packet was informational and helpful. We understand that we are renting someone's home and appreciate the helpful tips and very reasonable requests to orient you to the home. Matt and Kathy (owners) were more than accommodating and seem to be very interested in ensuring a comfortable stay.

Beautiful cabin but customer service goes a long way!

  • 3 of 5

The ONLY reason I did not rate 5 stars was due to customer service. The cabin was beautiful, clean, and well stocked in the kitchen (pots/pans/utensils). Views were amazing, especially when sitting on the outdoor swing. Good fun for everyone with the billiards and air hockey table. I would suggest that you bring extra paper towels, toilet paper and trash bags, however. We were also given a detailed packet of instructions to prepare for our arrival. Even after following, the hot tub stayed at the same temp of 96, never reaching 103 degrees. We were willing to overlook that small inconvenience in 30 degree weather. However, what really disappointed us was the owner's response when we couldn't get the WiFi to work. After making sure I was using the correct modem and multiple failed attempts, his first response was "It works you are doing something wrong." He then went on to say previous renters didn't have any issues. Well, it could have been they never tried using the WiFi. Because when we compared the password on the modem to the password included in his packet, we discovered that he failed to include one little character that made a huge difference! He did apologize after we made him aware of his error. Unfortunately, it still left a sour impression. To that old saying, "the customer is always right"..... most times, in this case we were. Overall, beautiful place but customer service definitely enhances the experience.

Owner's Response: Tanea: So pleased you found the lodge clean, beautiful, with great views and well stocked. It was also great that you were able to get connected to the WIFI. We have two modems at the house and apparently you were using the correct password for the incorrect network. To eliminate confusion the second WIFI network was removed. As for the hot tub enjoyed it myself this evening at 104 degrees. As stated, there is an ECO mode that stands for Economy and this mode does not heat as high as the STD mode. The instruction guide indicates to ensure the spa is in the STD mode to enjoy at higher temperature. I am pleased that we were able to get you connected after our conversation/text.

Great time

  • 5 of 5

Friends and I came here for a couples long weekend. We had a great time just hanging around the cabin enjoying the view, cooking some food, and playing board games. We went into blue ridge one day and had a nice time relaxing on the outside patios there as well. Overall a great experience and we would definitely do it again.

A fun place for family

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time, and would definitely recommend this cabin for a quite relaxing time. The cabin is comfy, with a nice TV, and fireplace in the family room. It was very clean and quite. The kitchen was very well stocked. There are really nice views from the screened porch. And we made good use of the hot tub. I personally am not tied to the Internet on vacation, but it seemed very slow. We made a big breakfast everyday and cooked all our meals there, watched movies, and played in the game room. We were a little worried initially, because there seemed to be so many rules in the rental agreement -ex. "if you move a book, put it back in its place" "your not renting a hotel, it's someone's home". This makes it a little hard to relax. I guess that they have been burned by inconsiderate people in the past, - however I will say that we cleaned up behind ourselves and we had no issues. I would like to see a few extra towels. And, While there is a pool table, it's a bit difficult to play a decent game as it's to close to the walls. And, just a suggestion, I would personally rather pay $100 - $150 extra at the outset, and have the wood for the fireplace supplied when you get there. But, thanks for the cabin and we were already talking about returning before we left.

Owner's Response: Dear Roger: Thank you for your review, we appreciate your feed back and take action to improve renter experiences. Based upon your feedback we re-drafted the Instruction Guide reducing it from more than 14 pages to just informational essentials in 7 pages. We agree that there were just to many "rules" that we included that are plain "common sense". And yes you are correct that we've had mostly perfectly terrific renters, but then there are people that have torn the place appart and forced us into reminding renters of every detail. Over this past weekend we purchased new towels, so that we can leave more out for renters. And we are considering options for relocating the pool table to a bigger spot. One option is to remove the post for the stair way which would create more shot making room.

not much living space

  • 3 of 5

we had a good time at Mi Cielo but I wouldn't go there again. It is the only property we've ever rented that we had to provide our own firewood. The owner's provided the name of someone who delivered it, but you have to buy much more than you will need . Just an inconvenience. There are three bedrooms in the main house but the living space is very small. There is the guest lodge but we didn't use it at all. If you like to play pool or air hockey you might like it but other wise it's a waste of space. Lots of rules.

Owner's Response: Cindy: I am sorry that you found it inconvenient not to have fire wood included in your rental. As we explained, supply of firewood is wrought with complexities, but we try and take all feedback seriously so purhaps we can identify a firewood solution. However, there are significant reasons why we've elected not to include firewood service, for most renters it works out best. As I clearly indicated throughtout the booking process, we do not supply wood for three key reasons: 1. Because we cannot control the quality of firewood, we've determined it best to allow renters to select dry aged wood in person so that they can best control wood aging, species and quantity available for their enjoyment. 2. Because it is impossible to control how much a specific renter burns during a stay, assigning charges proved untenible. We've had numerous renters accidentally leave the house packing split wood thinking that they paid for the whole wood pile. In short, controlling what was actually consummed and billing accordingly proved impossible. 3. Because some renters have allergies or are otherwise not insterested in fires, including wood in the rental rate would in effect overcharge those people for wood they didn't use, which we decided wasn't fair. Rather than supply wood directly we provided you with several options. Our delivery service has been terrific for quality, service and cost, but does offer 1/2 cord minimum In addition, I indicated that you had options to buy smaller quantities of in a number of local establishments all within a short distance of our property including: Home Depot, Wal-Mart, Ingles and the many convenience and road side spots in the area. I would have been happy to provide additional assistence, should you have elected to call me when you were not happy with the minimum wood smount our service indicated. On the day of your departure I found about a dozen logs near my front steps it looked like you were able to burn most of the delivery, so that is good, too bad you were not able to pack it up and take it with you. Lastly, I am sorry that you found the house too small for your needs. Most renters seem to find that it is cozy, has great views and generally speaking people love to enjoy the game room. We clearly state the square footages of the house on the VRBO site and numerous pictures and descriptions of the property make all this it quite clear. It sounds like the firewood situation upset you.
