Welcome to Little House, a charming and private cottage located just a short walk from the quaint downtown area. This cozy one bedroom cottage features all the comforts of home. It has been lovingly maintained by the owners, who are local artists. The house includes a mix of antiques and new furniture, as well as many of the owners unique pieces of art. French doors in the master bedroom lead to a deck overlooking the private, shady back yard. There's off street parking and even room for a boat trailer.

Start your day relaxing on the back deck, sipping coffee, or listing to the birds, or sit on the front porch under the canopy of the ancient oak, dripping with Spanish moss.

About Cindy Leiner

My husband and I built little house in 1986 as a rental home. We always loved the tiny house concept and thought it would a good idea to give us some added income. The cottage has a special place in our hearts and we love how comfortable and quaint it feels. We have been in property management for 25 years before we retired in 2005, so we have had a lot of experience making guests relaxed and happy, we think you will find that comfort in little house as well.

Cindy Leiner purchased this Cottage in 1985

Why Cindy Leiner chose Cedar Key

This property has more character and personality than most rentals you will find here. We are both artists and the cottage has many original works of art along with eclectic pieces of sculpture. It has a lot of charm and attention to detail, that makes this cottage very special.

What makes this Cottage unique

This cottage is on the first floor and convenient to your car for carrying in groceries and luggage. If you are looking for peace and tranquility of small town life and an escape from the daily grind, Little House is just the place for you.

                                                              Just what we needed after Christmas chaos. Quiet, clean, and had everything that we would need. We enjoyed looking at all the different art pieces in the Little House. Easy walk to go out for dinner or get a latte. Even though I have been to Cedar Key several times, I enjoyed looking through the binder with information about Cedar Key including things to do and menus. The only thing missing was recycling information; I wasn't sure which items could be recycled.The weather was a little too cold to sit outside, but maybe next time it will be warmer.
