              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2013

              About the owner: All the holidays are celebrated. Family and friends are an important part of life. Here you see Memorial Day, 4th of July, Labor Day, and Veteran's Day--all decked out because we support our family and friends who serve our Great Country in the armed forces! Halloween and Christmas are joyous holidays and celebrate the 'Festival of Lights.'

              Why the Owner Chose Suwannee River:
              Cottage rentals were created for two daughters who are affiliated with the Air Force. Erin's cottage is designed with unique interest that she likes. Her husband is in the United State Air Force currently stationed in San Antonio, TX; he is a helicopter crew chief instructor. The other cottage is dedicated to Stacy, who is an active duty Air Force member and is currently stationed in Valdosta, GA; she is a weather person for the base and has served in Afghanistan, and has recently returned from Ethiopia for a short tour. She is currently expecting in November 2014!

              The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
              Cottages are dedicated to them, so when they visit they have a place to stay. Being in the military, making them feel at home is very important. They have both served our country in the states, overseas, and in combat situations. Any day they visit is a 'holiday!' Visit the upper Suwanee River where kayaking, canoeing, fishing, and just plain fun. Start from the Big Shoals and canoe/kayak to where the cottages are located in hours (depending on the river height). The upper Suwanee River is where the true nature begins.
