About Anthony Charles Trettel

I am an owner of a drilling business in the Atlanta area. I have always appreciated the outdoors , with a love for trout fishing. My father has a primitive log cabin nearby, and I have always found this area of North Georgia to be especially beautiful.

Anthony Charles Trettel purchased this cabin in 2004

Why Anthony Charles Trettel chose North Georgia Mountains

Spacious 2 acres overlooking the upper Toccoa river.... What more could you want? A perfect getaway with plenty of privacy! There is a hot tub and outdoor shower that are really nice aswell

What makes this cabin unique

As near perfect a place as you could find that combines solitude, waterfront, and the relative nearness of charming mountain towns.

Great Stay

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful place to stay with lots of character! Great for a getaway and the hot tub under the stars was breathtaking. Owners made sure we had everything we needed for a relaxing trip. We would absolutely stay at the "stargazer" again.

I've rented places on homeaway all over the world, I must say, hands down this is the best so far. Tony was super nice and easy to deal with..his place is a little slice of heaven. As far as the cabin, seems to be built with pride and exceptional many details of good quality craftsmanship and tasteful decor. Beds are comfy and the whole place is homey. To top off the great cabin is the property, beautiful to say the least. My dog has only ever been a leash dog, well here she roamed free, on the property and through the amazing surrounding areas. The river on the bottom of the property was my highlight, it's so pretty and serene. So many bonuses here, already setting up a return visit.

Very cool cabin

  • 5 of 5

Have rented cabins in the past and this is now my favorite. The cabin is quaint, stylish, and clean. It has a very neat loft also. Add the two acres of property with the extra large fire pit, the hot tub, and the river - there are plenty of things to do. We brought our dog and she had a ball running around unleashed and playing in the water. The large outdoor speakers were also cool. Bring your favorite CDs to enjoy during your bonfire or while relaxing in the hot tub. You won't be disappointed with your stay! We plan on returning later this year.

Tip: After you turn on the main driveway - you will cross a wood bridge then you come to multiple forks in the road. Stay left at each fork until you see The Stargazer sign on the left.

Relaxing Getaway

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was very charming and accommodating. I especially enjoyed the wrap around porch with the swing watching the hummingbirds drink out of the feeder, while listening to the river below.

I would highly recommend this cabin to other couples looking to getaway from it all.
