Overview

About the property

Beautifully Furnished 2 Bedroom Cottage with Wi-Fi, Satellite TV, Best Location!

Coastal Cottage in the heart of downtown Cedar Key! This historic home has graced 1st Street for 90 years. A classic Cracker home, there are two immaculate, beautifully decorated bedrooms (one queen, one full) and one full bath. HGTV's Coastal Collection Paint highlights the vaulted ceiling, wainscoting and original doors. All brand new furniture, TVs, and mattresses/linens. The breezy wraparound front porch with locally made adirondack chairs makes an ideal spot for people watching, reading, sipping tea, or just relaxing.

The Ida Belle Cottage was once home to Mrs. Ida Belle Davis, who raised her family here. Though Mrs. Ida Belle is no longer with us, her family continues to live and work in Cedar Key. When you enter the house, don't forget to look on the wall just to your left, a little tribute to the cottage's namesake is there for your enjoyment. A true Southern woman, she would want you to stay and be comfortable. Most of all, she would want you to see Cedar Key the way she did--from the little cottage on 1st Street.

About Anne Young

Our family has grown up on the water in this area. Starting off fishing and crabbing, our lives on the water have brought us to Cedar Key for the last 20+ years. Jon and Shawn own and operate Southern Cross Sea Farms, a wholesale/retail clam business here in town. Caryn owns and operates Pelican Realty just around the corner. Jenny is a music teacher. We love Cedar Key and always want to do what we can to protect it.

Anne Young purchased this cottage in 2015

Why Anne Young chose Cedar Key

Though we already live and work on the island, we felt a push to preserve a classic Cracker house that had so much history behind it. In a time where everything new is often the most desired, we wanted to share a bit of the glorious old with newcomers to Cedar Key. The island's unique charm comes from an eclectic mix of old and new. In offering this home away from home, we hope you will find yourself as enchanted as we are with a lovely old cottage. If only walls could talk...The Ida Belle Cottage would have some incredible stories to tell. Write your own story here on the corner, if you wish.

What makes this cottage unique

Walking distance to everything, easy to find, management lives on the island.

Nice home, quiet town

  • 4 of 5

We had not visited this part of Florida before and wanted to try something different. The town was quiet, but quaint. The property manager, Anne, was very accomodating. We drove to Steinhatchee for scalloping and it was a blast.

  • 5 of 5

Great location. Truly enjoyed our stay. The cottge was awesome. Enjoyed hangong out on the porch swing. Kayaked three days visiting the nearby keys and bayou. Got a lot of great pics and even saw a few bald eagles on their nest. Biked everywhere we went. Will be back.

Lovely time in Cedar Key

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in Cedar Key. The cottage was very comfortable all around. Loved the town of Cedar Key which is small and laid back - great for a relaxing getaway. From the cottage you can walk anywhere for coffee, shopping, etc. Great day trips nearby too.
