About Billie Rooney

Billie Rooney purchased this House in 2001
Why Billie Rooney chose Branford
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!!

Property is great. River is fantastic. Bring a boat and enjoy.
Would definitely recommend. The family loved all the activities available at the house. The gameroom kept the family busy during a rainy day and everyone loved taking the canoe out in the river. The house was clean and spacious.
Tranquil and comfy!
The river house was just what we needed. The beds were comfy. The property was well maintained and all of the amenities were a great touch. We especially loved having use of the canoe.
Owls are a hoot
Wonderful place would highly recommend had a great time
Paw Paws pleasures
Billie is a wonderful host!
Beginning prior to checking in she made us aware of things to do from dining to playing! Kayaking, canoeing, swimming and the fire pit for S’mores were all great!! We are excited to visit in the near future!
Thank you for sharing Paw Paws with us!!
Perfect stay at Paw Paw’s Place
Our family enjoyed three delightful days at Paw Paw’s place. Our hosts were helpful and accommodating. The cabin was very clean. The beds were soft and comfortable. The kids loved canoeing and exploring the spring across the river. We had a fun and relaxing stay. I would highly recommend Paw Paw’s Place!
