- Cedar Key is a small island town situated in a cluster of islands in the Gulf of Mexico. It is nestled in the middle of the the largest stretch of undeveloped coastline within the contiguous United States. Life slows to island time in this small community, but there are numerous eclectic restaurants, art shops, and outdoor activities to keep you occupied. Two wildlife refuges and several state preserves border the community, and most of the outlying islands are part of a national wildlife refuge or wilderness area. Mangroves and oyster reefs surround the islands, dolphins and manatees are frequent visitors, and the bird life is rich in diversity. There are several annual celebrations held in Cedar Key, including the seafood, art, and kayaking festivals, as well as the Cedar Key Star Party. Several private tours offer airboat adventures, saltwater fishing, birding, and naturalist tours. Restaurants offer local flavors featuring oysters, clams, and fish, or you may purchase freshly-caught seafood from the local watermen to prepare your own favorites back at the Marsh House kitchen. For those who would like to explore on their own, local businesses on the island offer kayak, bicycle, golf cart, and boat rentals. There are also public boat ramps and marina facilities for those bringing their own boats. An airport on the island offers access by aircraft within walking distance of both the Marsh House and downtown. Cedar Key is not Daytona Beach or Disney World and the locals and other visitors appreciate the distinction. However, the kids will enjoy the municipal sandy swimming beach, safe biking, and extensive playground facilities, while the adults will appreciate the quiet streets and friendly faces. ...moreless

The house was clean and had a beautiful view of the marsh. It was equipped with all we needed. We didn't get to use the Kayaks due to the cold weather but it was a great option to have.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The Marsh House is one of the best birding sites on the island. There is a bald eagle nest in the stand of pines across the marsh from the back deck, and the marsh attracts waterbirds of all sorts. The house catches the morning light as well as the spectacular sunsets. Due to the remote location of Cedar Key along this stretch of Gulf Coast, the milky way glows on a clear night. It's just a short walk into town for groceries and restaurants, but the house is located down a limerock road, off the beaten path.
