About Billie Rooney

Scott and Billie Rooney live on a farm outside of Live Oak, FL , about 35 miles from Paw Paw's Place. They grow blueberries and blackberries for U-Pick and have a flock of sheep and a few cattle. Originally from St. Petersburg, they moved to North Central Florida in 2005.

Billie Rooney purchased this house in 2001

Why Billie Rooney chose Branford

We have been vacationing on the Suwannee River for many years. It is a great place for families to enjoy nature, connect with each other and just all around have fun. Paw Paw (Billie's dad) dearly loved this place. When he became ill, he needed to sell it and wanted it to stay in the family. We purchased it and have been renting it to vacationers since. He was proud to have so many families be able to experience the peacefulness and family fun that his family did over the years.

What makes this house unique

There is nothing like having your morning coffee on the screened porch overlooking the slow moving water of the Suwannee River. Enjoy the peace and quiet as you watch the squirrels scurry through the trees, fish jump and see the occasional fisherman pass by.

When you're up and ready to go, there are many springs nearby for swimming. You don't want to miss floating down the Ichetucknee River in a tube or on a raft. Canoe the Suwannee or bring your motor boat. Or just stay and home and fish off the dock or play in the water.

Grill your supper and have an outdoor meal on the picnic table. Then end the evening with a campfire. Makes for a great nights sleep!!

Great getaway spot

  • 5 of 5

This place was very nice. Spotless, well maintained, organized, and had everything we needed. The hosts were great about communicating with us. It's in a very quiet, rural area, but the town of Branford is only minutes away. There are several springs very close, and the river right in front of the place is beautiful. We hope to go back again someday.

Charming, comfortable and relaxing.

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was quite adorable and more spacious than we expected. Well stocked kitchen made meals easy. The game room and lower pavilion were great for the teenagers to hang out, the parents all loved the rockers on the upper level overlooking the river and dock. The canoe was a fun trip up and back down the river. Would definitely stay at Paw Paw's Place again!

The house was clean and confort

  • 4 of 5

The house was very clean and comfy, access to the river is not the best, the grass is high, the owner or family were in the cabin on the side, all time doing face time I felt uncomfortable and without privacy.

Peaceful

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriend and I loved our stay at the little cozy river house. Peaceful and serene. My only regret is not booking a longer stay. For a moment in time you can forget all your personal troubles and troubles of the world. The Porch over looking the river is where I ate ever meal at, also from the Porch you can hear and watch the sturgeon fish juming in the river . The sounds of two owls talking to each other from across the river was my girlfrind favorite moments at the River house. The River house is very clean and beautiful decorated. The owners are very helpful and responsive. My girlfriend can't wait to stay again.
