GREAT NEWS! Faraway Inn Is Open For Business. We are accepting online reservations and accepting cash, visa and mastercard payment.
Hurricane Hermine hit Cedar Key on September 2, 2016 with great force. Luckily, through the resiliency of the island, its people and all the incredible volunteers who helped, most of the businesses are up and running full service. A few of us are operating partially as we continue to make repairs and rebuild. Faraway Inn is open for business with the canoes, kayaks, bikes and grills ready to be enjoyed.
Though six of our twelve units are still a work in progress we are happy to say that six units are ready for our guests to enjoy. To keep current with our progress as well as Cedar Key events and news please visit our Facebook page.
Respectfully, Doreen & Oliver Bauer – owners

The 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.
