Overview

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.

The view was amazing and the cabin was a perfect getaway for our family!

  • 5 of 5

The view was amazing and the cabin was cozy. It had everything we wanted from the beautiful sunrises seen from the screened in porch, game room area for the kids, jacuzzi tub, close proximity to hiking trails and restaurants in Blue Ridge. Enjoyable visit and we will come again!

Owner's Response: Joy: We are so pleased that you enjoyed the stay at Mi Cielo Lodge! Our cleaner was super thankful for the attention and care your party took with the lodge to make her job easier. We hope you'll consider coming again in the future. We've really invested in the property this year adding a new washer, dryer, dishwasher, microwave and sleeper sofa in the main house. As well as added curtains in the guest house and new cushions for the outdoor furniture. Later in the year we plan to install new screen system and doors on the porches. So please come back to enjoy the upgrades to the outdoor amenities planned later this year! Thanks, Kathy & Matt

Beautiful cabin with perfect views!

  • 5 of 5

This is a great cabin in a great location! We visit Blue Ridge just about every fall and we all agree that this was the best cabin for our family yet. We loved getting away from our busy lives and playing in the game room with the kids while taking in the beautiful views. Thanks for sharing your cabin and providing everything we needed for a wonderful retreat!

Home was dirty and not as advertised - Not worth the money

  • 1 of 5

I would like to start out by saying that I have never left a negative review on VRBO before, and we have stayed at over 20 homes on VRBO. There were many problems with this home.

1. Cleanliness- this is the biggest problem with the cabin. A clean home is absolutely the most important thing to us when we are staying at a home. Upon arrival, the first thing we noticed were the funky outdoor furniture and rugs. The faux leather chairs in the living room were completely threadbare from overuse. The grossest part of the home was by far the beds. My kids found a Fanta bottle, used old tissues and dirty socks under their bed! I noticed that all of the linens and bedding were not cleaned and they had noticeable stains on them. I washed all the bedding: the sheets, comforters, and the pillow cases- by myself. As I was washing the linens, I noticed that the pillows were disgusting. They had huge stains and were discolored. The mattresses were stained and discolored too. It was really hard to sleep in the beds once I had seen what we were actually sleeping on. The master bedroom on the first floor was awful. It was super small and dark. The bed was very creaky and felt like it was going to break any minute- and we are not big people at all. I actually stayed up much later than normally because I didn't want to sleep in the disgusting bed.

2. Very worn- The home looks like an old rental, and it has not been taken care of very well. Screens were broken, the rugs and furniture was stained and there were cobwebs and spider webs all over the porch. It looks like the owner has not been here in a very long time and the house has fallen into disarray as other reviewers have noted. Also, the roads up and down the mountain are so worn that you can actually see the mountain underneath. It is almost impossible to get up and down. As others stated, be sure you have a 4 wheel drive!

3. Unhonesty. In the manual, the owner states his procedures needed for checkout. He wanted the trash taken out, fridge emptied, dishwasher loaded, and a few other things. We completed all of these and more and were still charged our security deposit! As another reviewer noted, be sure to take photos- this owner will charge you in a very rude manner.

The bottom line is that this home is not what it is advertised to be. For the price, you can rent a really nice home in the Blue Ridge area. Don't waste your time here, and rent somewhere else that is worth the money.

Owner's Response: Dear Future Renters: As you evaluate the perspective of this person, I would just ask that you consider the opinion of 40+ other renters that have honored us with FIVE STAR reviews of the lodge! In those reviews it's often remarked about the cleanliness of the lodge, the quality of items in the lodge, the beautiful views and various other wonderful remarks about us and the lodge. One thing is for certain, we are are imperfect owners despite how we try to make everything perfect! At the end of the day items do break and from time to time we overlook a minor detail accidentally, but when this happens we do our level best to make the situation right. In the last year we've made a number of investments to improve the renter experience and we always make every effort to ensure lodge is clean, comfortable and relaxing so that people enjoy their vacation time and have a comfortable experience. When things go wrong, as sometimes happens, we make every effort to make the issue right for the renter. In this case, we charged renter $75 cleaning fee adder in the form of a deduction of their $275 security deposit, to compensate us for cleaning charges we incurred putting the lodge back in order following their stay. We are reasonable people and expect renters to take basic care of the home during their visit. I have a number of photographs my cleaner sent with her invoice that indicate the lodge was left in horrendous condition including obvious signs that an unreported pet stayed with the renter. At no time during rental was any complaint made by renter; only after we withheld partial security deposit were complaints offered here. Suffice to say that on rare occasions we have rented to those that disregard common decency and then after we hold them accountable financially elect false testimony. In the last year we've replaced the clothes washer, clothes dryer, dishwasher, microwave, WIFI modem, televisions, spa cover, and pull out sofa in main house. We invest in the property routinely and care about the renter experience. Today, 9/29/2017 I am headed to the cabin with new sheets, towels and bed covers. We are doing that not because this renters comments are true, but because we go beyond to create a good experience for people. Best & Sincerely: Matt & Kathy

Very well maintained and relaxing.

  • 5 of 5

I absolutely recommend this cabin. My host were out of the country but still very helpful. There are four different porches to choose from and the house is the perfect setup for a family and or friends get away. They provide everything you. Could ever think you'd need just being your groceries and have a good time! Would recommend this place in the future and I definitely plan on returning!

Owner's Response: Nia: Thank you for leaving a review of our cabin, Mi Cielo Lodge VRBO# 496304! We are pleased that you enjoyed your stay and welcome your family back whenever your plans are open for a return trip to the Blue Ridge Mountains. This spring we are planning renovations to both screen porches off the main house and upper level of the guest house as well as by expanding the panoramic view to the west. Again thank you for staying and please come again! Kathy & Matt Gidley
