About Brenda B McLaine

We have a family of 12, I am the grandmother. We have two children and six grandchildren. We live in South Georgia and have always enjoyed the North FL area.

Brenda B McLaine purchased this house in 2003

Why Brenda B McLaine chose Branford

My family loves to fish, and any type of water sports. The house is conveniently located close to many springs along the river. My father, mother and I fished this area many years before their death. Our son, daughter, son-in law and all our grandchildren have very much enjoyed our place on the Suwanee River.

What makes this house unique

The beautiful old oaks along the river with Spanish Moss. Serene and comfortable. Seeing wildlife from the front deck. Kid friendly.

Wonderful weekend adventure on the Suwannee River!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed getting away from it all for a weekend. The house is on a large property and right on the river. The area has very little cell coverage, which gave us a break from technology to spend with family and friends. The house is very cute inside, with 4 bedrooms, a couple of cots, and 2 futons downstairs. There's a dock and a rope swing. Kids played in the river all weekend. We visited Bob's River Place and Ichetucknee Springs. Thanks for an amazing getway!

Large Family Perfect

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is wonderful. It's in close proximity to Ichetuckney Springs State Park and Bob's River Place. Two bedrooms on the main floor, perfect for Mom and Dad. Two large bedrooms and large bathroom in loft. The downstairs area has a large room with two futons, formally two bunk beds. We have stayed at several cabins in the tri-state area. This one is our favorite. Our only concern this stay was the needed maintenance of the dock and dock stairs. Based on our previous experience with the owner, am positive, this will be addressed. The owners deeply care about the quality of their facility. This cabin is highly recommended.

Great Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time! Home is very comfortable and the kitchen is very well stocked with anything you may need. We spent most of our time outside on the dock or on the water. Very enjoyable and relaxing. We will be back very soon. The owner, Brenda, was very helpful and easy to work with. If you are looking for a very nice home on the river, this is the one, you will not be disappointed!

Nearest Restaurant

Car: necessary

If you want to get away from all the hustle and bustle of city life and like the water this is the place. Down the river there is a small water park with slides, tree ropes to swing into the river and a small zip line for a very reasonable price. The owner of the park just asks for donations. The name of the water park is Bob's River Place and can be accessed on Face Book by this name. Springs nearby provide crystal clear waters to swim or dive.
