Property description

This Classic Cracker house - Wabi Sabi Cottage - was built in 1919 and was completely and lovingly restored in 2004. We changed the exterior as little as possible but once you step inside no detail has been overlooked. We added central air conditioning, used reproduction lighting, outfitted the kitchen and bath with modern conveniences - while keeping the cottage charm.

It is so special that Budget Travel magazine featured it in their September 2011 issue of Top 10 Coolest towns in America. Cedar Key was number 8.

Vintage photos and a mix of antiques with new furnishings complete the décor. There is off-street parking with room for a boat trailer. It is the perfect spot for a romantic getaway. We hope you will love the quiet, privacy, and charm as much as we, our friends, and our family do.

Historic Cedar Key is a nature lover's and artist's dream. Cedar Key is one of the few remaining fishing villages (mullet, redfish, grouper and trout) left in Florida and oysters, crabs, and farm-raised clams still being harvested the old-fashioned way. Nearby are outer islands with historic ruins to explore, as well as Manatee Springs, Homasassa Springs, and the Lower Suwanee Wildlife Refuge. We have numerous wonderful restaurants, fun shops, and art galleries.

We have two festivals a year - in April (the Art's Festival) and the Seafood Festival in October. You can also rent kayaks, bikes, boats, fishing guides, or golf carts to get around but do not forget to bring a camera, that book you have been meaning to read, and your fishing pole. You are in for a wonderful and relaxing time.

Only one hour from Gainesville, two hours from Tampa, and three from Orlando, Jacksonville, or Tallahassee airports. Please see the Chamber of Commerce Website Link for additional information.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2003

About the owner: My background is in design and I love the historic and natural beauty of Cedar Key and really appreciate the visitors who feel the same way.

Why the Owner Chose Cedar Key:
Wabi Sabi because it was on 2 lots and there were people who wanted to buy it, tear it down and build a couple stilt houses. We decided to purchase, restore and share it with guests who come to Cedar Key and want to stay in a one-of-a-kind historic property. The cottage was one of several that were built for the fiber factory workers and there is still a remnant of another building's foundation out in the yard.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
When I travel, I prefer to stay in historic or funky and unique home.. When I out-fitted Wabi Sabi, I decided that if it was something I would want or need on vacation, it was going in. I think that my guests appreciate the attention to detail and extra amenities. Really, just about all you need to bring is your clothes and toiletry bag!
