Cedar Key house description
The Foxwell House has all been updated yet the true Florida Cracker Style feeling is maintained. It is close to everything, including fishing, museums, art shops, great seafood restaurants and quiet tranquility. The Foxwell House property goes all the way back to the Back Bayou where one can sit and watch the water and birds.
A completely restored home in the heart of Cedar Key, you can walk the entire time you are here, no need for a car. The grocery store is a scant 5 minute walk, the nearest restaurants are only 500 feet, and the nearest birdwatching is right out your back door.
Ideally appointed for two couples with two bedrooms, both with queen beds, and a shared bath with connecting doors to each bedroom. Equipped for a short stay or longer ones, the home has a laundry porch in the front. Walk into the home and the front two rooms are the bedrooms because we wanted to keep the VIEW for the living area. At the back of the home is a large 'great room' with fully appointed kitchen, a bath, and the living area with satellite TV and wireless internet. You may never be there though because the room opens onto our covered porch and then an open deck, perched on the edge of the Back Bayou, where we spend most of our time. Almost a 'secret garden', the back of the home is shaded by one of only three bald cypress on the islands of Cedar Key. The bird life here is astounding, from egrets to herons to ospreys and even a bald eagle or two. You are perched above the mangroves while on the deck and porch, or walk out our small dock to enjoy the FULL view of the teeming waters filled with birds, jumping fish, or bring a crab trap and catch tonight's dinner.
Fully equipped, you need bring only groceries, and if you forget, the local grocery store is only two blocks.
We have satellite TV and DSL so you can stay in touch while you are 'getting away from it ALL'. We have local phone service, incoming calls only, in the event your cell phone doesn't work in Cedar Key (and they often do not) or just use our excuse-'I'm sorry, my signal was bad'.
Come for the solitude, the quiet, the recharge you so desperately want and NEED. We won't tell anyone that you really could have answered that email.
There is a fold out sofa in the living room and with the second bath located in the back part of the house, the house can easily accommodate a third couple or two additional people. We supply all the necessary linens and there are plenty of blankets, etc. for the fold out sofa.
The kitchen is fully equipped with dishes, pots and pans, glasses and coffee mugs for six. We have a microwave, coffee maker, a full size electric range, in short, all the comforts of home, but IN Cedar Key.
We are pet friendly, and have small crates to save you having to bring your own. We ask that you bring proof of flea treatment with you. The yard is fenced, but we all know our furry friends can find the smallest escape routes; please bring a leash.
Cleaning fee of $50, waived for monthly rentals.
