About the Property
Cottage, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)
It is so special that Budget Travel magazine featured Wabi Sabi Cottage in their September 2011 issue of Top 10 Coolest towns in America and Cedar Key was number 8.
Vintage photos and a mix of antiques with new furnishings and some modern art complete the décor. There is off-street parking with room for a boat trailer and a fenced yard for your pooch to run around. It is the perfect spot for a romantic getaway or maybe just a solo hideaway? Oh heck, you can bring the kids, too. If you need to work, there is a desk area and Wi-Fi Internet service. I hope you will love the quiet, privacy, and charm as much as I, my friends and family do.
Historic Cedar Key is a nature lover's and artist's dream. It is one of the few remaining fishing villages (think mullet, redfish, grouper and trout) left in Florida. Oysters, crabs, stone crabs and farm-raised clams still being harvested the old-fashioned way - by hand.
We have several wonderful restaurants, fun shops, art galleries, (some) night life, two museums, a fishing pier, city park with swim beach and a library plus more.
Nearby are outer islands with historic ruins to explore, as well as Manatee Springs and the Lower Suwanee Wildlife Refuge. Within an hour's drive you can go to Gainesville, Micanopy and more.
We have two festivals a year - the Art's Festival in the Spring and the Seafood Festival in the Fall. You can also rent kayaks, paddle boards, canoes, boats, fishing guides, bikes 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.

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. Yep, that's me in the photo plus Frenchie, the Wonder Dog.
Why the Owner Chose Cedar Key, FL, USA:
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. The decision to purchase was easy, as well as to 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 homes. 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!
