Faraway Inn Site History
islandhistory-1-1The Faraway Inn property was once the site of the Eagle Pencil Company Cedar Mill (circa 1870 – 1896). The mill was damaged in the 1896 hurricane and storm surge. The once plentiful stands of red cedar were becoming sparse and brought the end of the enterprise.

    • Thank you so much for thinking of Faraway Inn. We do require a two night minimum on the weekends. We would have Units 5 or 9 available for $100 per night plus tax but it would require a two night stay. Sometimes we have a one night only if a guest does a Saturday and Sunday then we would have a Friday night open. With only 12 units we have to make the most of our rentals, I hope you understand. We will do one nighters during the week Sunday – Thursday.

  6. Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though you
    relied on the video to make your point. You definitely know what youre talking about, why waste your intelligence on just posting videos to your weblog when you could be giving us something
    informative to read?

  7. We r looking to rent a cottage for 2 people one bed from Oct 26 / oct 28 do u have any cottages available?

  8. My grandparents took me to the Inn.
    There use to be a dock. The Johnson
    family use to live @ the top of the hill.
    They fished, we would crab off their
    dock .

  9. Oliver, Doreen & Staff – I just want to say THANK YOU during our visit early Oct. I think even our Yorkie, Oliver had an enjoyable vacation, as even he seemed more relaxed when we arrived home! Making plans already for our next visit. Thanks again – Karen & Mark Hunter

    • It is always so great to hear when folks have a good time and especially when their 4-legged best friends have a good relaxing time also. Please remember when planning your next visit to see our specials and hopefully you can take advantage of one them. Again, we loved providing you with a relaxing, enjoyable get-a-way. If you have an opportunity to go on Tripadvisor and write a review that would be fantastic. Your positive comments mean so much to our business. Respectfully, Doreen & Oliver

  10. My husband Lance and I are interested in coming to Cedar Key this weekend with our two dogs. Do you have any vacancies? We would check in tonight Friday September 27th and out on Sunday September 30th. Coming from Tallahassee and love CK. We own a lot on the island and have been coming for yrs. We enjoy renting at different locations for varying experiences and have never stayed with you before. Thanks and have a great day!
