About Bernie Brigman

I've been in the cabinet / millwork business most of my adult life .

I've been married for twenty seven years and we have a twenty one year old son . I've been a Suwannee River fan since my parents had a place not far from ours in the late 60's .

I love kayaking , skiing, scuba , and about any other water sport.

Bernie Brigman purchased this cabin in 2004

Why Bernie Brigman chose North Central Florida

. Although we had a river house some six miles down the river, our new cabin is much more secluded with very little passing traffic as we are located on a dead end street. Our property is 1.77 acres with 365 feet of river frontage .

If you fish or ski , we have a covered boat dock and there are three

boat ramps in close proximity to us .

If you like kayaking as we do , your kayak or canoe may be launched at several sites depending on the length of the trip you want .

You may also float down part of three rivers in a days time . Starting at the itchetucknee , from there down to the Santa Fe , and from the Santa Fe into the Suwannee .

What makes this cabin unique

Swimming and snorkeling is perfect as we are able to go up and down the Suwannee river and the Sante Fe river that is only two miles away. Our location is below all rocky parts of the river allowing one to travel all the way to the gulf. [around 62 miles]

In Touch With Nature

  • 4 of 5

Outside of the cabin, the view was captivating, from the fresh green leaves of the abundance of trees to the glistening flow of water from the Suwannee River, and the beautiful symphony of the wilderness, you will feel so connected with nature, it’s a form of therapy. The location of the cabin is perfect, the sights will capture your heart and soul. I would have given this 5 stars if only there was an iron for us to use in the cabin and only if the light in the living room was working. But overall, it was a good getaway, my husband, cat and I even met Lucky the neighbor’s little dog, he was too adorable!

Nice time

  • 4 of 5

So the trip started off with finding a lock box with no key to enter the cabin. And I was unable to reach the owner. Fortunately home away was able to contact the owner they took care of the situation quickly and made things right.

What a great getaway spot for a couple or a group. Very clean and cozy cabin that has everything you need. We brought out dogs and the neighbors let theirs run loose so we did have to keep an eye on things.

A Real Gem In The Woods!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I were looking for a secluded place in the woods, on the water, where we could bring our dog and escape so-called city life. I was thrilled to find this beautiful property. When we first saw it in person, we were so impressed. The photos are 100% accurate. We stayed for 3 nights and enjoyed every moment. We enjoyed the lanai where we had our breakfast and coffee each morning, something we miss already. We had all of our meals on the lanai and even used the provided BBQ grill. The boardwalk to the river is so nice. We even did a little fishing off the floating dock. Didn't catch anything but that didn't matter. Just being surrounded by such beautiful scenery was priceless. We did venture into the town of Branford one day for some groceries. A nice and friendly town. We had planned on visiting nearby Troy Springs and a couple other parks but decided just to kick back and enjoy our time at this "Tranquility" cabin (which lives up to its name). We will save those places for next time as we are hoping to rent this wonderful place in the future. Bernie, the property owner, was very nice and helpful in all of our communications. Upon our departure, my husband told me this was the best place I've ever picked for a getaway. For anyone looking to get away from it all and for some peace and quiet, this is the place!

My husband and I with our two daughters and a friend rented the whole estate and stayed for a week June 2015 we were even able to bring our ranger with us. had the best time. The convenience of the springs to the cabin was amazing. The boardwalk is beautiful it's a hike but, so worth it!! We did catch some fish, best of all our 3 year old reeled one in, we all just enjoyed ourselves so much!!

Bernie is a great person to book through obviously he has great taste to own that hidden treasure... We look forward to coming back, as soon as we can!!
