Why the Owner Chose White Springs, FL, USA:
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. She currently lives in San Antonio, TX; her son love's the arts and music. The other cottage is dedicated to Stacy, who is an active duty Air Force member and is currently stationed in Biloxi, MS; she is a weather person for the base and has served in Afghanistan, and did a tour in Ethiopia for nine months. Stacy and her husband have a new son named Oliver who was born in December 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. Both daughters have both participated in serving our country in the states, overseas, and Stacy 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.
