This is a very pretty one bedroom home with a king size bed (additional queen inflatable bed upon request). The home features a modern kitchen, and attractive indoor living room but the best feature is the 400 sq ft screened in porch that overlooks the tranquil and lovely Braden River. There are 2 large flat screen TVs with wifi connection. There is a full laundry in the garage. The house was built in 2013 as a guest house for our main home (next door). We are on 2.5 acres and the property has panoramic views of nothing but nature. It is surrounded by gardens and magnificent southern oak trees dripping with Spanish moss making a very romantic setting. We have NOT been affected by the algae blooms, the river is clear and our fish are fine!

About Mary Ann MacCartney
We have been expats for the last 30 years and chose Bradenton because of the tranquility and long family connections. We love how close we are to the bustling world yet how far away it feels. After 10 years in Asia we have incorporated many aspects of the orient in our gardens and home.
Why Mary Ann MacCartney chose Bradenton
The Fish Camp was designed as a guest house for us to live in while our main house was being built. Our architect ensured the home is not only comfortable but also takes full advantage of its riverine setting. Our property is 2.5 acres with a large pond at the entrance and the Braden River in the back.
What makes this House unique

Great place to relax
Loved our stay. Mary Ann and Steve couldn't have been more helpful with local hints and tips and great hospitality. The property is right on the river with its own dock for fishing and launching the kayak. There is a screened porch where you can spend your evenings in the rocking chairs looking out over the garden and river. There are 2 bikes in the garage which we used to explore the local neighbourhood. The property was clean and tidy and contains all equipment you will need. Walmart, Pulblix and a number of other stores are within 10 minutes drive whilst Bradenton beach is approximately half an hours drive. Will definitely return.
The time we spent at this beautiful and peaceful cottage was a time of rest and relaxation. I would recommend it for anyone who needs to remove stress from there life. Just watching the birds and wildlife in general is worth the trip.

just like a Lake cottage
This is the most quiet place I have ever stayed with the most beautiful view of a river on a large patio nicely decorated with lots of nice furniture. The owner also had the place stocked with not only plenty of dishes yet things like spices some even organic, candles, flashlights, and so much more. They had games, a kayak, and bikes I could of used yet I was gone for a convention most of the time, yet really enjoyed sitting in a rocking chair in peace and quiet with beautiful view in morning and seeing the sunset over the river at night. I had my friends from convention come over who really enjoyed the space as well as I had to share. The only down side was a bit musty inside, but I opened the windows that helped some.
Lovely cottage in a beautiful setting.
We very much enjoyed our stay in this lovely cottage. Everything that we could possibly need was provided. Our hosts, Mary Ann and Steve were friendly and accommodating. I spent every morning, with my coffee, sitting on the fantastic screened in porch watching nature come alive. And then every evening, with my glass of wine, enjoying the most beautiful sunsets I have ever seen.
Very peaceful and quiet. Beautiful property!
We enjoyed the fishing dock and kayak. Close to lots of places to visit.
So glad you enjoyed your stay! It was our pleasure to have you.
Bradenton is a small retirement community on the Gulf of Mexico between Sarasota (10 miles/15 min) and St Petersburg/Clearwater (34 miles /37 minutes), Tampa (48 miles/47 min) and Orlando (118 miles/ 107 min). Our community is in the Eastern part of town and we are surrounded by horse farms and quiet neighborhoods ideals for cycling. The amazing Anna Maria Island beaches are just minutes away as are wonderful nature parks. There is great shopping nearby at the University Park Mall and at the Ellenton Outlet Mall.
