Walk down to our shared dock, sit at the end, perched over Goose Cove, and REVEL in the colors, the sounds, the beauty of Cedar Key's finest sunsets.You can sit and watch the tides flow, the birds winging out for the day, and then, at the end of your stress free day, watch them wing back in.
We have a fully equipped home, waiting for your stay. Go fishing in the morning, come home to have today's catch for dinner! Not in the mood to cook tonight? We are centrally located to All of Cedar Key's fine restaurants, including the downtown, Dock Street and the smaller cafes along State Road 24. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are less than a 10 minute walk. From elegance to down home, all your food fantasies can be fulfilled in Cedar Key.
We offer a large living room, with two comfortable sofas, several easy chairs and satellite TV for your indoor relaxation. We are also connected to the real world, if need be, with UVerse wireless internet. (just don't tell the boss-we won't.)
A separate dining room opens from both the kitchen and the living room, with seating for 4, brightly lit by natural sunlight, if you must stay indoors, this room makes you sure you are really not.
Fully equipped kitchen, with service for 8, including a full size refrigerator, a large pantry, electric range-you are going to feel like you can stay forever.
The three bedrooms are all connected, with the master bedroom having a queen bed and flat screen TV. The smaller bedroom has twin beds, and the the third bedroom has a double and is also the laundry room.
The bath is large, with a step in full size shower.
All rooms are well lit, mostly by natural sunlight, but at night the glow of the many lamps will give you plenty of light for board games or a great card game. The flat screen TV is modern, and you can watch DVDs or bring your game player. With Uverse, you can bring your Netflix account and watch any movie you wish, or we have a small video library.
The screen porch is likely where you spend most of your time and we have equipped it with two colorful Adirondack chairs, the swing and several smaller tables to make you time in Cedar Key very comfortable. We want you to love Pete's Retreat as much as we do.
The yard is large, with plenty of parking for you car and boat, or have a picnic under the palm trees, there is plenty of room. Or rent a golf cart while you are here, there is plenty of room to park!
We provide all linens, paper products, dishes, pots and pans, in short, all you need bring are your groceries. We ask that you remember we are an island and ask that you use the utilities and resources wisely, including utilizing our curbside recycling.
We do not charge a cleaning fee; the price quoted is subject to tax. We love our dog, so we ask that you bring yours with you; we do, however, ask for a non refundable pet fee.
Come, enjoy, relax, rejuvenate, Cedar Key is THE place to do just that. Now we can offer you waterfront access with our community shared dock. While we can't give you fishing tips, we recommend you learn the tides, as Cedar Key is VERY tide dependent ...but as an old salt reminded us once, 'you haven't been fishing until you've been stranded'.

Why Cedar Key:
Cedar Key is where we have been looking to spend our time, we want to retire here, enjoy the sea breezes, the fishing, the small town atmosphere. We like older architecture, this home was built 1920 and was the home of a local fisherman/preacher. He raised his family here, we want to enjoy the same life.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
This house is situated downtown, close enough to walk anywhere, but just far enough away for privacy. Perched on one of Cedar Key's highest points, we catch any breezes, yet we are only 1/2 block to Goose Cove and the specatular sunsets afforded by the direct west exposure.
