About Mark Przybyla

Hi, I am Mark. I love to travel just like you probably do. I feel so lucky and blessed to own this beautiful home and even luckier to get to share it with you. I am involved in real estate (own and rent long and short term rentals). Its a good thing that I am so handy and love to fix things and paint!

Mark Przybyla purchased this house in 2006

Why Mark Przybyla chose Big Canoe

My favorite thing is getting to stay at the cabin after some guests have left and reading all the kind, and amazing comments left in the guest book. It feels really good to know that I have brought a little joy and happiness to others!!

25th Anniversary Trip

  • 5 of 5
We just returned from a wonderful week's stay at Shooting Star Falls! We debated between going to the beach or to the mountains and decided on this beautiful home in Big Canoe. It was definitely a home and not a cabin and we were so impressed with the furnishings and the way it was so beautifully decorated. It was just the two of us and we were able to enjoy quiet mornings with breakfast on the screened in patio listening to the waterfalls before going out on new adventures each day. We could easily have stayed two weeks trying to see everything in the area, but we will have to return. Mark was such a great host and was so accommodating. We couldn't find a corkscrew to open our wine, so he overnighted one to the front door! We felt like we were renting from a friend, and it was so much nicer than going through a company. We would highly recommend this property to anyone that enjoys first class accommodations in a quiet and private setting surrounded by God's natural beauty. We can't wait to go back!

Amazing

  • 5 of 5
What an interesting and unique house. There were so many great touches which made it so comfortable What's not to love , sitting in a great hot tub on the porch, with an amazing waterfall that flows right next to the house, and totally enjoying the privacy of nature. We had a wonderful time. I love to cook and the kitchen is fully equipped. There is a lot of great hiking at Big Canoe along with great golf courses plus the bonus, great trout fising. We will definitely be back. After chatting with Mark a few times, I think I have a new found friend. thank you Mark!

Loved Shooting Star Falls!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at Shooting Star falls from 4/27/13 to 4/30/13 with another couple. The cabin was awesome, looks even better than the pictures. The DVD collection, pinball machine and various games were a great way to spend a rainy Sunday afternoon. The screened porch over looked an amazing waterfall!! On a walk one morning we noticed that most of the cabins have some type of waterfall close by, but none compare to the one at this cabin! We ventured out shopping one day while the guys played golf and there are so many places to go in under 30 minutes. I will definitely stay here again and I recommend it to everyone, young and old!

Loved our stay!!

  • 5 of 5
I left a message also @ the cabin, but wanted to follow-up with you about our fabulous weekend at the Shooting Star Falls!! My daughter and two grandsons were ecstatic about the cabin and the all the amenities!!! It was just what the Doctor ordered!! Actually more than what he ordered! We loved all the stain glass & old world design was so charming and unexpected!! The boys spent 2 1/2 days on the Pinball machine! (until the quarters ran out! ) They so enjoyed the ping pong table for hours! Chase is only 6 and Trevor being 12, we didn't expect they would be playing ping pong, but to our amazement, Chase is ready to compete! Lol! So Daddy has set up the ping pong table @ home, as a result. Thank you! So much to say, I hope to not bore you. The waterfalls & hot tub lured us ALL outside, regardless of the freezing temps! The awesome fireplace!! Oh my!! There's no words to express how much we enjoyed it this weekend!! Not to forget to mention all the massive movie selections and the Wii games!! In other words, we had a fantastic memorable weekend! (as we did @ the Stargazer in 2006!!) We shall return! Maybe the big guys can come next time, maybe? I didn't quite manage the grilling as well as they might! :-) I LOVE Jazz and that was the first music we heard! Everyone knew then, Mamaw picked the right place!! Well just wanted you to know, sharing your home with us was a wonderful blessing! Thank you, Mark!

Reach for the Shooting Star!

  • 5 of 5
What an amazing experience! This Thanksgiving my family decided to do something different. We wanted to celebrate this sacred holiday with close loved ones while being away from the hustle and bustle of city life. Shooting Star was exactly what we needed and had imagined. When we arrived at Big Canoe, the scenic views and natural aromas made everyone feel immediately relaxed. Then to top it all off, we were welcomed by the fragrance of peppermint upon entering the Shooting Star home. This property was just right for our group of six which included two couples, a grandparent and a very happy little guy. Shooting Star is a beautiful property with great space and loads of comfort. When we weren't feasting on fantastic holiday foods (which were prepared by a great grill, stove and oven and stored in a spacious refrigerator), we were napping the extremely comfortable beds, enjoying the warmth of the fire place, playing pinball (bring your quarters) or immersing ourselves in the soothing hot tub--our son's favorite! The Wi-Fi worked well and allowed us to capitalize on some great Black Friday sales and occasionally check on life back home. If you enjoy shopping, it is also about a half hour drive to North Georgia Premium Outlets. Needless to say, we will differently be back. If you decide to come here, be sure to drive slowly. Although it provides beautiful views, the roads can be a bit windy and steep. The directions can be a bit tricky, but the security guards at the North Gate are very helpful and will even provide a map. Our advice, once you enter Big Canoe, just take your time and Shooting Stars, a.k.a. relaxation, is just a few minutes away. Lastly, Mark, the owner, is absolutely fantastic. Excellent communication and a genuine desire to ensure that our experience was amazing.

Best Vacation Spot Ever !

  • 5 of 5
The wife and I and our sister and brother-in-law spent a week at Big Canoe and stayed at Shooting Star Falls. What a great adventure it was to be in the beautiful Georgia mountains with golf, hiking, animal watching, and the water all at our disposal. The cabin was wonderful, with great beds, beautiful surroundings and we loved the pinball machine. We would recommend Mark's place to anyone looking to get away from it all and next to nature in Big Canoe. We had a wonderful time throughout the week.
