Since 1842, the best kept secret in Florida. Book, stay, relax, and don’t tell anyone.
Cedar Key is a unique place in Florida due to its rich history, natural beauty, and small-town atmosphere.
The island has a long and interesting history dating back to the Timucuan Indians, who inhabited the region in the late 1700s. European Americans settled the island in the early 1800s, and established a thriving port and shipbuilding industry. During the Civil War, Cedar Key was a major supplier of beef and other provisions to the Confederate army. After the war, the town's economy declined, but it remained a popular destination for fishing and hunting.
Cedar Key is known for its natural beauty, it's a coastal town surrounded by water and nature, it offers visitors a chance to explore the Gulf of Mexico and the surrounding islands. The town is also home to several parks and nature preserves, including the Cedar Key Scrub State Reserve and the Cedar Key Wildlife Refuge, which offer opportunities for hiking, bird-watching, and other outdoor activities.
Cedar Key, also known as “the Island City”, is unique for its small-town atmosphere and laid-back vibe. The town has a population of less than 800 people, which gives it a small, tight-knit community feel, and visitors can enjoy a slower pace of life in contrast to the busy tourist destinations in Florida. The town also has a rich arts scene, with several galleries and studios showcasing the works of local artists.
All these factors together make Cedar Key a unique place to visit (or stay), and it's a great destination for those looking for a peaceful and relaxing getaway, combined with a taste of history and nature.
We hope to see you soon.
