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 Florida North Central Gulf Coast

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!!

nice and peacefull place

  • 4 of 5

The cabin was comfortable and located in a secluded placed but yet close enough to the town's commerce; we enjoyed having seen lots of deer around the area and the sturgeons jumping up in the river.

Paw Paw's Place

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at Paw Paw's place, it was way deep in the woods, peaceful and quiet,

lots of wild animals, the flowing of the river from the porch was fantastic, fishing from the floating dock was good, very relaxing.

All the luxuries of home, not far from town.

Able to park my pontoon boat at the floating dock and able to go out early in the mornings and late in the evenings for a boat ride.

The house was fantastic and comfortable, the beds slept great.

The kitchen was very nice and easy to cook meals in.

Great Trip

  • 5 of 5

Just as describe in photo we enjoyed our stay very much quite and serene. Very clean and the kitchen was very well stocked with everything you could need. We enjoyed the game room actually used it more than expected at days end. Close enough but also far enough from town that you wouldn't mind going if you forgot anything. Can't wait to go back.

Serendipity

  • 5 of 5

Paw Paw's place was the perfect spot for a weekend getaway dedicated to floating on Florida's beautiful rivers. It is close to many different rivers and springs. When we weren't floating down the Santa Fe or Ichetucknee or exploring Ginnie and her sister springs, we were floating on Paw Paw's dock, enjoying the Suwannee River. The home was clean and easy to find if you follow directions. A short drive away is town where you can find most of what you might need. Both rooms have king beds which allowed for stretching out. The beds were very comfortable, and we slept like rocks. The screened porch was a fantastic place the enjoy our evening meals in nature without being eaten by mosquitos. We spent most of our time rafting, but it was very tempting to want to just stay at Paw Paw's Place thanks to all the entertainment and the fantastic location. I won't hesitate to visit again.
