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.
Originally from the Upstate Region of New York State near the Adirondak Mountains, Kathy & Matt met in a geology course as part of our business degrees Accounting & Economics. After college we settled into corporate careers, traveling and relocating broadly including moves to Raleigh, Tampa, Cleveland and Atlanta. We were married in 1997 and moved to Atlanta a year later in 1998. We've lived in Alpharetta, Georgia longer than anywhere lese in our lives and consider ourselves Southerners now! We are fortunate to have two beautiful and kind children Allyson, 14, and Matthew, 11, both of whom are very active in school activities, educational and athletic pursuits. Kathy loves being a wonderful wife & mother, traveling, enoying our mountain home, decorating and is a true wine enthusiast! Matt enjoys coaching kids sports, golf, fishing and of course maintaining two homes!

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.
We stayed at Mi Cielo for 5 days and it wasn't near long enough. We enjoyed the views, sitting on the porch and the game room. Waking up with hot coffee and the views of the mountains was incredible. During the day we were just a short drive from many fun activities. One day we rode the Blue Ridge Scenic Railway, another day we went hiking on the Aska Trails and visited the Mercier Orchards. Another day we scheduled a local photographer (Spring Wishart) to take family portraits at a near by vineyard. After putting the kids to bed in the evenings, having the game room separate from the house was great because we could get loud and competitive during air hockey and pool. The game room was close enough to the main house we could use our video monitors to keep an eye on the little ones while they slept. We had all the tools necessary to cook our meals at the lodge so we could spend even more time away from the hustle and bustle of daily living. There were very few things to complain about with the lodge. My only recommendation to future guests is make sure the vehicle you travel in has all wheel or 4 wheel drive. The location of the lodge high on steep gravel mountain roads, were sometimes a challenge in places where the gravel was loose or in low supply. We were able to easily contact the owners during our stay to help us navigate an alternate route down the mountain for when we needed to leave the lodge. Our family will most certainly keep Mi Cielo in mind for future getaways.
We spent 3 days/nights here before "back to school." This property was perfect for our family of four - kids age 10 and 6 - and our labrador. The living room and bedrooms were comfortable, and the kitchen had all the essentials we needed. My 10-yr-old wished for blinds on the upstairs bedroom window so she could sleep a little later, but other than that it was great! We all enjoyed the air hockey and pool tables in the game room, and the views on the porch were incredible. We liked the location and that it was a few miles out of town, so it was very quiet, but still close enough that we could be at any activity in just a few minutes.
The owners of Mi Cielo were very friendly and easy to work with, and the home was clean and well-maintained. We will recommend to our friends in the future, and hope to visit again ourselves.
As for the area, our favorite activity was tubing the Toccoa River - great for all ages. We also did a little trail hiking and strolling downtown with our dog. My husband and 10-yr-old had a blast at the Adventure Park zip/obstacle course, while my 6-yr-old and I enjoyed the BR Scenic Railroad trip. And our super competitive family enjoyed mini golf (and gem mining) at Cohutta Cove.
My family and I spent 5 days in Mi Cielo. The beds were comfy, they had everything we needed in the kitchen and the whole cabin was extremely clean and well kept. Totally felt like home :) We had a wonderful time exploring the blue ridge mountains and we'll definitely stay at this cabin again!!
We stayed at MiCielo Lodge for about a week and enjoyed it immensely. The main cabin was beautifully decorated for Christmas, which was a wonderful surprise, and the kitchen well-equipped. The living area is a bit snug for more than 5 people, but the 4 of us were very comfortable, and the attached guest cabin has a small TV/family room as well. The guest cabin is great for giving another couple or older kids their privacy - it has a gaming room & laundry area, and the bed (sofa bed) is in the small TV/family room. We couldn't get enough of the gorgeous views and sunsets, and we took walks with our dogs along the peaceful wooded roads every day. The gravel road is long and winding and steep in places, but we had no trouble, and prefer the privacy..and views! And even though it is (perfectly!) secluded, there are houses nearby.
We stayed in this beautiful cabin with our 3 daughters, their husbands, plus 2 dogs. We had a great time! To start with, working with the owner was a breeze. He responded to any email questions I had within 24 hours, and most times it was within just a few hours. The lodging has 3 bedrooms in the main house and a sleeper sofa in the guest house. The beds were very comfortable and all Queen size. The sleeper sofa was tricky getting it opened up, but was very comfortable. The dining table sat all 8 of us comfortably. The kitchen is open and stocked with everything. There is every kind of glassware you could want. There were plenty of dishes and cookware, silverware, utensils, including a corkscrew.
There are 2 screened porches, one with chairs and one with a table that seats 6. There is a breeze way that connects the main house to the guest house that has 4 rockers to sit and enjoy the view. The guest house has the sleeper sofa downstairs and upstairs is the pool table and air hockey, which we all enjoyed. The screened porch on the main house is long, but narrow. Around the side of the main house is the hot tub, which the family enjoyed very much on one night. It was ready to go when we arrived. We just had to turn up the heat a bit a couple of hours before use. There are TVs and DVRs all over the place, and wifi. The views were spectacular.
The owners had a notebook on the coffee table full of information on things to do and see and places to eat. Our daughters and their husbands found a place to go horseback riding and loved it. We prepared all meals at the cabin and the grocery store was a 10 minute drive away. The thing I liked most about the cabin is that we were so close to everything, yet the cabin was very secluded. No neighbors to be seen.
- The living room is not very large, but we all managed to squeeze in for family time.
- There were no mirrors in the bedrooms.
- Because of the foliage, the house did sometimes appear dark. Luckily there was plenty of lighting, except for in the master bath. It was tough only when applying makeup though.
- Bedroom in the guest house had no curtains over the sliding door, so when sitting on the porch we could see right in. Had to dress in the bathroom. But views of moon were beautiful from that room at night.
- Checkin/Checkout times were different in contract than website, but owner worked it out with us.
We would definitely stay here again!
Had 'THE BEST' girls weekend EVER......... Had friends came over from England to visit and they just loved loved loved the spectacular views, the coziness of the cabin and everything that came with it. I will most certainly be booking to stay in the very near future. Truly beautiful. Lots and lots to see and do. Didn't want to leave.
