Overview

About the property

Accommodations: Goose Cove Cottage is a spacious one bedroom with a Full size bed and two additional single beds in the first half of the living room. This property was completely remodeled in late 2012 with new kitchen, bath, lighting etc., 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 on our new 50” flat screen TV, as well as Wi-Fi. Cell phone service not very good in Cedar Key. Seems to work outside but not inside. Low ceilings in bedroom and going into living room. Best suited for folks under 6' 2''.

Spectacular views of the gulf, especially at sunset are seen from both the kitchen and living room. 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.

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, Goose Cove Cottage 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 Pirate Festival and a kayak festival in September.

Beautiful views of the Gulf

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed everything during our stay in Goose Cove.

The nice cottage, the great view on the Gulf from the porch, the walk to the old centre, the delicious clams and our daily drinks on Dockstreet.

A fine ending of our trip.

Just a quick get away.

  • 5 of 5

Goose Cove cottage is charming. And very, very clean. Nicely decorated, very well stocked with kitchen and bath items. The boat ramp made getting out and back to explore in the boat very easy. We rented a golf cart for tootling around town--fun! Both my husband and i are short, so the low ceilings were fine, but something to keep in mind if you are tall people. Other than that--Perfect in every way. We will certainly try to get back before too long.

A nice little place.

  • 4 of 5

The location was good. Easy access to most everything. The cottage is small as the owner stated prior to leasing. I think that the private boat ramp and dock amenity could be left out of the description. It could be misleading. I had never stayed in Cedar Key, so I mistakenly compared it to other places that had canal access with ramp/dock. The only recourse was paying a ridiculous $16.00 daily ramp fee down town. The owner had warned me about that also. Overall it was a pleasant trip.

The place is located in a great place the get a constant breeze with a beautiful view of the Gulf and keys. It is very quiet and peaceful and very dog friendly. We enjoyed the scenic walks and the friendly neighbors. Will definitely be back soon. Don't forget to get your clams like we did! Lol!
