The Suwannee River Gator Nest was exactly what my soul needed and my hosts couldn't have been more accommodating and kind. Incredible sunsets/sunrises, walks to the river (thanks to Denny's map!) and full-access to the back deck overlooking the river. By far, this stay was my favorite BW stay! Thank you Denny & Peggy!!!

Our host, Denny, welcomed us warmly and showed us around his property, including a large deck overlooking the river and generous area to park. When asked, he suggested a place for dinner and in all ways was a kind, thoughtful host. We'll definitely visit again if in the region.
