Marathon house description
L E M O N K E Y C O T T A G E
Jeff and I would like to welcome you to our Florida Keys home. We desire that your stay with us is memorable, relaxing, rejuvenating and enjoyable. Grab your sunglasses, flip-flops, and sunscreen and make your way to our beautiful heated pool. Don’t forget to make your favorite umbrella drink! It’s your time to slow down, relax and let the Keys’ mystique envelop and rejuvenate you. What we have is yours to enjoy…
Lemon Key Cottage is located on a deep water (12’) canal only 5 homes from the ocean. So, bring your boat and tie up to our 60’ lighted dock with electrical outlets. Our canal contains a variety of fish species especially bait fish like mullet and pilchards. Feel free to use the provided fishing poles to catch dinner off the dock. Use small hooks baited with shrimp or squid and fish under the dock or boats for some decent snappers. Throw a cast net and see what you catch. A lighted fish cleaning station is provided with a wash down hose. You can see the occasional predator fish at night around our snook light under the dock. There’s a baitfish cage and bait freezer available. Snorkeling, kayaking, paddle boarding or flats fishing is accessible right at the end of the canal. If diving is your thing you'll find some of the best dive spots minutes from our dock. Occasionally, our canal is visited by Manatees, so be careful when operating watercraft.
The canal empties into the ocean through a flats area. Our flats are an amazing aquarium of ocean life. Do yourself a favor and take the two provided tandem kayaks through these waters to see a plethora of sea life. From our canal, you can reach the Gulf by taking Vaca Cut, which is less than a 5 minute boat ride.
We purchased Lemon Key Cottage in July of 2012. We made additions and renovations including; the heated pool with fiber optic night lights, landscaping and outdoor lighting, hurricane shutters, utility improvements, kitchen appliances, davit and dock improvements, 42” Flat panel TV, wireless high speed internet, 36” flat panel TV/DVD, and various cosmetic enhancements.
Unlike some other vacation rental homes, we decided to stock all the general necessities of home so that others can immediately start enjoying their vacation without running to the grocery store to buy toilet paper and hand soap.
The home is ~ 1500sq ft of central air conditioned living space with 2 bedrooms , 2 full baths, kitchen, living room, dining room, family room, laundry room, and a screen enclosed veranda. The kitchen is fully equipped including pots, pans, toaster, coffee maker, plates, silverware, the very important blender, and much more. Linen closet includes all bedding sheets/blankets, bath & pool towels. Many renters comment how much they enjoy our plush wall-to-wall carpeting as it's much more cozy and 'knee' friendly compared to cold, hard tile/marble floors. Should you wish to grill your catch of the day outdoors, there is a Weber Grill waiting for you master chefs.
Our neighbors are full time residents that you’ll enjoy meeting. Neighbor Paul is a commercial fisherman of lobsters and stone crab. Usually, you can watch him clean his catch each night at the dock. Neighbor Joe has his own television show on spear diving in the Florida Keys called “Speardivers”, which is now in its third season! You can imagine the seafood recipes that these guys have! Neighbor Cora is a marine biologist, and she can answer all your questions on marine life.
Wishing you an excellent vacation at Lemon Key Cottage.

About the owner: Our family resides on Catawba Island, Ohio, which is a small island on the western basin of Lake Erie. God blessed us with four children: Austin, Addison, Aidan, and Isabelle. I’m a school teacher and Jeff is a salesman of medical products.
Why the Owner Chose Marathon:
Our family vacationed many years in Florida including the Keys. Having fallen in love with the Keys’ tropical treasures and recreational activities, we decided to make our claim (actually a mortgage!) in paradise.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Lemon Key Cottage is our sanctuary from the hustle of life. We truly come here to rejuvenate, relax, and unwind. There’s a certain mystique about the Keys…perhaps it’s the “come-as-you-are, don’t worry, be happy” attitude that everyone seems to enjoy. Whether it’s deep sea fishing for large Mahi Mahi or sipping on Rum Runners by the pool, there’s always something for everyone.
