About the owner: This cabin was built by local resident, Bradley Cooley. Growing up in the area, Bradley has always loved the Wacissa river and envisioned a beautiful cabin sitting on this property one day. Bradley, along with friends and family who helped construct the cabin made it a reality. What started out to be a family fish camp turned in to be a one-of- a kind cabin nestled on the beautiful Wacissa River. The cabin is constructed from river logs out of the river. Property is owned and operated by Bradley and Jenny Cooley, and dear friends, Jon and Amanda Schee.
Why the Owner Chose Monticello, FL, USA:
If you have an appreciation for the great outdoors, you will not find a more unique piece of property in a more private, beautiful location. If you like the hustle and bustle of the noisy city and want to be closer to the chaos, this place is probably not for you. From swimming in the cold, natural springs of the Wacissa in the North Florida summer time, to roasting mash mellows in the winter time by the fire pit, our cabin has a little for everyone. You must enjoy the great outdoors and river life to appreciate this place.
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
We fell in love with this property for its natural beauty. The wood we built the cabin with comes from the very river it sits beside. This is without a doubt one of the most peaceful and relaxing places you've been in North Florida. Sitting in the middle of the head waters and Big Blue (natural spring), a day of fun on the river awaits.
