Cedar Key house description

If you are looking for a relaxing getaway, this Rye Key house is the place for you. Located in Cedar Key, Rye Key is a small gated community of fewer than 15 houses. Our house offers the ultimate in quiet and privacy. It is located on a short street with only two other houses and on a lagoon shared with only one other house. Although every room has many windows, curtains seem unnecessary for privacy. This quiet privacy is only two miles from the historic commercial area of Cedar Key, easily reached by car, golf car or bicycle.

The light-filled, tile-floored house features two bedrooms separated by a great room. Each bedroom has a queen size bed, bathroom, sliding glass doors and a small covered porch. The great room has a living area with leather furniture, a dining area and a sun porch with a wall of floor to ceiling windows overlooking the water. The fully equipped kitchen is separated from the great room by a bar with stools.

There are porches on both the land and water sides of the great room. A private dock allows access to the water. Fish for red fish, kayak, canoe or simply sit and watch the tide change. The lagoon is home to many varieties of birds, including herons, egrets and osprey. Mullet jump, catfish and stingrays swim in the shallows, the big red fish feeds on the oyster bars and, occasionally, a dolphin visits.

                            The property is very nice, and the views are stunning. Peaceful evening and mornings on the two decks.. A lovely getaway from civilization, until, of course, you want to make the short trip to Tony's for a sublime seafood dinner and wine, with great music. Or, if you take a stroll down Dock Street to look and the goodies in the shops and stop for a delicious lunch at Seabreeze. A great vacation spot for relaxing and unwinding and viewing the beauties of Florida in a perfect natural setting.

                            The house was very comfortable for one couple and good/OK for the second couple. Plenty of privacy. The tidal lagoon out back has wonderful bird watching and good sunset views from the pier. The house needs some basic maintenance and updating but is roomy and comfortable. Appliances fairly old but functional. Some light switches a bit confusing, etc. Outside need some repairs such as some wood needing replacement and paint but after a day you tend to overlook it. Deck grill needs replacing. Pier is long and 4 ft wide without rails so be aware. Pluff mud will break your fall but Yucko!! to those who wander off the edge. If you're looking for a nice affordable retreat with ample privacy this is it. If you're looking for deluxe pay the extra. Cedar Key is a slow lazy old Florida fishing town with some good shops and restaurants but minimal beach access. Tony's clam chowder is as good as advertised and we had decent huge meals elsewhere. This is a place to relax and explore coastal nature. Air boat ride a must do. We'll return and stay here again sometime.

                            This is my second time renting this house and I'll be back again. Simply put, it's awesome! Thank you for letting us borrow your house for the weekend. :)

                            My boyfriend and I chose to stay here for the weekend of my family reunion. The house was great! We had our own dock to fish from, you could see lots of birds and wildlife. The price was just right too. The owner was even nice enough to let us have a late checkout so that we could enjoy our Sunday afternoon a little longer. The only thing that wasn't great were the sand gnat, but that is something beyond anyone's control! I would definitely stay here again!

                            My family and i have stayed at hotels in cedar key until i found that we could stay in a beautiful home for the same price, if not cheaper than if you added all the costs up. The views were amazing and the stay was much more relaxing at the heron lane home. And i would like to say that the fishing is top notch with an abundance of fish to catch, you will have a blast.

                            We are a retired couple that had visited Cedar Key and decided we would like to spend some time there. We were celebrating our anniversary so we rented this home for a getaway weekend. It was great. Private, peaceful, great scenery. Loved being on the water and away from the hustle and bustle of the downtown area. The home had everything we needed available. We loved all the great windows and balconies. 360 degree viewing. It would have been nice to have a screened balcony so we could sit outside a bit but the window views in every direction made up for that and all windows and some doors were screened. We had a great time. Loved the restaurants and shopping in Cedar Key.

                            My husband and I stayed at the Heron Lane House and LOVED it! The peace, tranquility, and ambiance were incredible! We woke up each morning to the sounds of birds and an occasional boat passing by. The view was incredible and the privacy was exactly what we were looking for. We really enjoyed sitting on the dock, watching the fish jump, and birds all around. Would have loved to use the canoe, but we never figured out how/where to launch it (?). This is definitely a place we plan to visit again.

                            This house is a very comfortable, bright, airy and large home and a great spot for birding. There is an amazing view from anywhere you’re standing. The pictures just don’t do it justice. There are floor to ceiling windows in the family room, a small deck and wonderful dock for lagoon viewing of the wading birds. The list of birds we spotted just go on and on and you never know what’s going to show up on any day. There is also a nice small deck facing the road for viewing smaller birds. As advertised here on the site, our neighbor really was the osprey and he often spent his nights in a tree right off the bedroom, which has a nice balcony for viewing. The two bedrooms were nice and each had a complete private bath and large closets. The second bedroom also has a small balcony. There is a full size washer and dryer which came in handy for our month long stay. The kitchen was large and adequately stocked although we did have to buy a few things for our cooking needs. Sunsets were nice, but because of the time of year it didn’t set directly in front of us, but the resulting colors in the clouds were very beautiful. It only took a 5 minute drive around to the west dock at Cedar Key to actually see the setting sun. The night sky from the deck is spectacular. Walking in the area was a pleasure as there are sidewalks all around and downtown Cedar Key is only about 2 miles which was a nice stretch of the legs. Along the route we spotted many osprey and even bald eagles flying in a distance. Anne Young was a help throughout our stay and we would definitely stay here again.

                            Can't say enough "positives" about our experience. No vacation for years .... we wanted quiet and secluded but safe, pleasant and comfortable. This house is everything and MORE than advertised! Everybody goes on and on about sunsets and sunrises and you will not be disappointed ...... but coming from my home, I had forgotten the grandure of the night skies! Don't think I slept more than a few hours each night for fear of missing this sight. Great privated dock and plenty of places both inside and out to relax and enjoy. During our visit the weather was both warm and blustery cold, yet the house remained cozy throughout. Anne Young from Pelican Realty was also a pleasure .... friendly, helpful and professional. We will be back!
