Amenities include a bath with an amazing two person shower with dual shower heads, a fully equipped kitchen, washer/dryer, coffee maker, microwave, full size refrigerator, oven and center isle with seating for two. The dining room seats four and the home has VOIP phone service. Wi-Fi is included, as well as hundreds of Direct TV satellite channels with the regional extended sports package, and a DVD player with movies. The furnished screened porch has a large George Forman electric grill and the large front porch which looks out over the Gulf of Mexico was literally built around two oak trees, hence the name TreeHouse.
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!
When the sun is setting, step out on the covered front deck to feel the breeze and enjoy the spectacular sunset view over the beautiful Gulf of Mexico. You may see a school of dolphin cavorting in the cove right in front of you or even the swirl of a black drum close enough to make you want to throw a line out. When hunger strikes you'll find everything you need to cook up mouth watering dishes and if you're a fan of the world famous Cedar Key farm raised clams, walk down two doors to get some from our local clam wholesaler. Cedar Key also offers outstanding local cuisine in its many casual dining restaurants. Check out terrific local musicians performing around town including Steamers Bar & Grill and the Island Hotel.
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.
