Overview

About the property

Accommodations: The TreeHouse is a spacious two bedroom stilt home with a king size bed in the master bedroom with a ½ bath and two additional single beds in the second bedroom. It sleeps 4 to 5 comfortably with a roll away tucked under one of the single beds in case you need it. This property has a nicely done kitchen, a shower for two in the main bath, and is very airy and light. The Kitchen is ready to use with complete sets of dishes, pots and pans, silverware, stove, microwave, coffee pot and utensils and a local grocery store can provide what you need. A washer and dryer combo is in the kitchen. Linens and towels are provided also. Cable is provided as well as Wi-Fi. Two porches look out over the water and the front porch was literally built around two oak trees, hence the name TreeHouse.

Spectacular views of the gulf, especially at sunset are seen from both the dining and living rooms or enjoy it from the front porch while sitting in one of two canvas swing chairs or laying in the relaxing canvas hammock which hangs from the ceiling. A boat dock out back on the canal allows fisherman to keep their boats in the water, but watch the tides to ensure enough water flow to get out to the gulf when ready to fish. This property is located on a commercial fishing/clamming canal in the back as well as the Gulf of Mexico in the front making it a unique property in a one-of-a-kind town. Like to fish but didn’t bring a boat, you can fish and crab right from our dock or join others on the new huge fishing dock downtown. Crab traps are on the dock, just remember to bring them in from the water when you go! We are also pet friendly with a small extra fee to accommodate your best friend. Covered parking is available under the second porch and the property can handle multiple cars.

The walk to town and the city’s beach is a leisurely 20 minutes along picturesque streets. Some guests rent golf carts in town to explore the entire island. The natural beauty of Cedar key and its slow pace allow visitors to feel what old Florida must have been like years ago allowing for very restful vacations. Whether you are here to just relax, sit and read a book, kayak, fish or just to enjoy the diverse wildlife, The TreeHouse can accommodate you comfortably.

Cedar Key hosts several festivals during the year so get your reservations early if you plan to attend one as the town fills up fast on those weekends. Special events include the Seafood Festival in October, the Art Festival in April, the Small Craft Boat Festival, the ClamAmerica celebration on the 4th of July and a kayak festival in September.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I was going to e-mail you and tell you how much we enjoyed our stay. The town was interesting, the seafood was delicious and the neighbors were friendly. And your house was beautifully equipped and was very comfortable.

Thanks for working hard to make our stay wonderful.

May is a great time in Cedar Key

  • 5 of 5

We brought our 2 college aged kids with us for a 5 day stay. We kept our 19 Carolina Skiff behind the house. Just used 2 scissor lines and 1 spring line, lifted motor and all good. A couple days we left out on an incoming tide when there was enough water to navigate out and stayed out 5 or 6 hours through a high tide and came back in with about the same water level. There was a day we stayed out through a low tide and had plenty of water to get in and out of the canal. We caught trout and for fun we tried shark fishing for our first time caught one and ate it yum and lost a 4 foot black tip at the boat, Great Time. Spending time like that with scattered family members is the best.

a comfortable homey stay

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time at the tree house again this year. I wish we could have stayed longer. We had everything we needed and were comfortable. We love the porch with the view of the gulf. The Watfords made us feel welcome.

Great Get Away

  • 5 of 5

Great house, very clean and quiet. It has everything. Wonderful location too. Not great phone or wifi service....but that was ok.. Don't need it when you are relaxing and escaping.

Owner's Response: Cell service is inconsistent around Cedar Key. At the TreeHouse most folks say usually get a couple of bars on the porch. Inside the house generally poor signal expect for around windows and doors. At night I try and leave my phone in a window sill so I receive messages and alerts. The wifi service is usually great I will look into that. Might be problem with the AT&T modem. Update AT&T made a wiring repair and changed the modem on March 20. WiFi all good again.
