We stayed for the Golden Retriever Rescue in the South annual get together – what a perfect place to have it. VERY DOG friendly, rooms are clean – though depending on what you get – a little on the small side – but that did not deter from the enjoyment. Staff was very friendly, location is perfect, a fun place to stay!!!
Recycling A++++++, don’t change room towels everyday, doggie bags are available in numerous spots, recycling cans are everywhere. The town as a whole is very environmentally aware.


Faraway Inn offers more than any other place we’ve stayed in for our visits to Cedar Key over the past 20 years. It’s like going back to childhood camp days; free kayaks, bikes, lovely gardens that show decades of love and growth, and swings that move you with the water during the “can’t beat it” views of a Gulf of Mexico sunset. Oliver and Doreen, the owners are pet friendly and personally support work with abused and abandoned cats. The staff is hard working but “low key” if you wish private time. Steve, in particular, is the resource for pointing you in the right direction for any water activities. He would do anything to make your time in Cedar Key a good one. It’s about location and fun and a treasure to be found.
The charming staff, the quaint well-manicured grounds, the very clean and unpretentious quarters, the pet and human friendly attitude in addition to the fantastic location on this lovely and rare key all combined to make this one of the best experiences for my wife, myself and Lido our dog. A field day for those artistically receptive. We plan to return soon. Thx to Shelly and Company.

This place is so adorable. The staff here are like family. The office has dvd’s and games. They provide bicycles you can ride all over town on. Grills to cook dinner and the store is 2 blocks away. Sunset on the porch swings are unreal! Love this place!

Quiet. Clean. And yes, Florida querky. Our cell ph didn’t work (perfect). We never turned on the TV (perfect). No room ph (perfect). View wonderful (perfect). And after driving from the UP of Michigan, we wanted a full day to sit and just relax. I don’t think we could have picked a better place. A friendly purring cat napped in the courtyard which helped with my withdrawel from ours. Laundry done with Downy and smells like home. And there is an assortment of bug spray outside by the office if the noseeums decide it is their night to feed. Save $ on meals and bring meat to grill. We had a midsized fridge and freezer in the room. grills were just outside the room. Birders? This is heaven on earth. Hope we can return next year for a week, instead of 2 nights!
Charming location with top notch innkeepers. We came in frazzled after a busy season at work. After kayaking, biking, and ocean view swinging (all free to guests) several times each day, we are leaving renewed, refreshed, and amazed at all this quaint village has to offer. Cottages have everything you could possibly want: great views and even an unlimited supply of games and DVDs. A must visit if you are headed to Cedar Key. Already planning our return trip!
