Mr. Grady left Cedar Key to pursue a career, when he returned, he picked out THIS home for the rest of his lifetime. Situated in a quiet residential neighborhood, this is the downstairs of the family home, fully furnished for short or long stays. Completely furnished, you too can enjoy the stunning views that the Cedar Key native picked out for himself and his family.
Facing north/northeast, this home has AMAZING sunrise views from the porch, the front yard and the dock. In keeping with the idea that the beauty was to be viewed, the dock has two Andironak chairs to enjoy the natural beauty and the varied wild life that this home has to offer. Start your day sipping coffee and enjoying the sunrise, then 'retire' to the porch for a well shaded bird watching perch while you contemplate whether it is time AND tide to go fishing. At evening, come inside to enjoy the fireplace or, if you must, check your email and watch TV.
Fully equipped for a weekend or monthly stay, there is a full size refrigerator, a two burner hot plate, microwave, coffee maker, dishes, linens, in short, all you need to make your stay in Cedar Key, the Gem of the Nature Coast, a GREAT one.
We have wireless internet, cable TV, books, movies, and even a small desk to work on if the weather keeps you in, but you will be outdoors enjoying the beauty of Cedar Key, either walking, bicycle riding, or BOATING.

Why Cedar Key: We inherited the property from our parents; they spent their retirement years here. Having both grown up in Cedar Key, they came back as soon as jobs, careers and child raising allowed them. They now are gone, so we share the property between our families and get to Cedar Key as often as we can.
