About Tari Johnson

Bill and Sharon Jones are the proud owners of this wonderful property. Bill was born and raised on this river system. Bills family has owned property on the Ichetucknee and Santa Fe continuously since 1958. When Bill graduated from college in 1982 he bought property himself and have been the proud owners of the Three Rivers Inn at Ira Bea's Oasis since 1989. When Sharon came along in 1996 we raised our children at our "vacation home" eventually moving there in 2009. We spent 4 years there and when the kids became heavily involved in high school sports the family moved to Lake City. There are FEW that know this river system as well. The area is all about relaxing, water, diving and tranquility. We ENCOURAGE you to ask any questions you may have!

Tari Johnson purchased this house in 1989

Great property

  • 5 of 5

We rented the house as a Thanksgiving vacation for family. The location is exceptional right on the river with all the equipment you need to enjoy the river. Lots of yard space for kids. Porch provided some great views and the fire pit made for lots of smores for the kids and a hot dog dinner one night as well. We had a minor issue at arrival but the owners made it right immediately and then some. We hope to do another family vacation here one day.

Great house +Great river=GREAT VACATION

  • 5 of 5

We celebrated our 50th anniversary, with the whole family being present, at Three Rivers Inn. When our children were young, we floated the Ichetuckny River several times and the children (now adults with their own families) suggested that we revisit the river and its area. We were fortunate to learn of Three Rivers Inn and it proved to be a great week and this a great decision as to what to do and where to do it. We floated the rivers, snorkeled, canoed/kayaked and enjoyed each others' company in fabulous surroundings. An added benefit was the close proximity of the Suwanee Greenway which provided a good biking opportunity. To top it off, the ease of dealing with Tari and others made this dream vacation even more special. Thank you all..

River Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Had a wonderful mini-vacation with family and friends at the River House. House and grounds are very nice and the water area was superb. My grandson kayaked with rental included equipment and loved it. It was so nice after a long day on the water, to curl up on the couch and watch a movie on the big screen tv at night.

It just doesn't get any better!! Can't wait to return!

Beautiful waterfront property

  • 5 of 5

This place is AWESOME! My family and I had so much fun. The water that the house is on is clean and gator free (well ya, know at least for the most part. It's a busy river). The shed is full of tubes for the float trips nearby so you don't need to spent the $20 for that. And there's 7 canoes! All of the beds were comfortable. The entire house was stocked with everything that you would need.

Wonderful trip

  • 5 of 5

Great place, there were 8 of us (all kayakers) and we had plenty of room and beds. the Owner Bill was great with giving us paddle suggestions. All three days were great minus the cold weather, but we were bundled up so it was ok. The cook loved the kitchen, it has everything you need. The view is very relaxing too and every day we were visited by a beautiful Hawk that would perch on the lamp post. We saw Bambi a several times during our stay, not on the property on the roads so keep your eyes open. Also saw Turkey. This is a great area and hope to return.
