Paw Paw's Place is located on a wooded acre on the banks of the
Historic Suwannee River near Branford, FL. The screen porch
overlooking the river is great for an outdoor meal, relaxing,
reading, or just watching the river go by.
It is romantic for couples, fun for families, and perfect for divers.
There are two bedrooms with king sized beds and a sleeper sofa, two bathrooms, and stocked kitchen with dishwasher and microwave. Game room with ping pong and foos ball, outdoor activities and a washer and dryer in the garage.
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
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.
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!!
I can't tell you what a great place this was. We had a great time. We did not want to leave. Mr. Rooney is a very good guy. Easy to work with.The house was very clean and so perfect!!!!!!!! Had a blast on the river. My favorite spot was sitting on the porch with my glass of wine watching the river flow by. Thank you so much for sharing your home with us. We'll be back!
The house and the surrounding area are beautiful! We had no problems at all renting, locating, staying. Billie was friendly and helpful. A lovely place to celebrate 25 years of marriage!
Paw Paw's Place was everything it was billed to be: clean, well maintained, and close to several springs and Itchetucknee river tubing. The fire pit provided a memorable experience for our small group. Owner communication and instructions also first rate.
Beautiful cabin with nostalgic decor. Dock on the Suwannee allowed for fishing and watching the river. Great location. The owners were kind. Finding a great place like this that is dog friendly was a bonus. Very peaceful stay.
This was a very nice cabin in the woods right on the Suwanee River. There are neighbors so it's not completely secluded but it is very quiet and peaceful. The screened back porch is a great place to sit and read on the rocking chair. Living room, dining room, kitchen, bedrooms and bathrooms are upstairs. There is carpet throughout except in kitchen and bathrooms and carpet looked new. Everything was very clean and comfy, and it was great having a washer and dryer when we came back from paddling and tubing in the nearby springs and rivers. Ichetucknee, a great place to go tubing--and diving with a permit--is very close by. We also enjoyed playing ping pong and Foosball downstairs. The only complaint I have would be that the outside of the cabin was dirty with cobwebs and general yuckiness including in the game room which is downstairs in an unfinished--bare wood--screened area. But hey, it's a cabin in the woods! Billie was great about giving us directions and info on where to go for supplies and activities. High Springs is not too far and we enjoyed an excellent meal at the Great Outdoors Restaurant there. Try the coconut pie--YUM. Mom, dad and the two college kids had a great time. I would definitely recommend this cabin.
Paw Paw's place was absolutely gorgeous! The cabin was perfect for a group of 6 people. The porch provides awesome views of the river and trees, not to mention a couple of owl sightings. We put the fire pit to use and it provided perfect lighting for the surrounding area at night. The kitchen worked great and all of the appliances and TVs work perfectly. It was clean and cozy. We are definitely going to be visiting again sometime soon. :-)
